    Spider-Man is a splendidly tuned action game with a stunning story, great action and gameplay mechanisms that won’t bore you for a moment. You should not miss out on this trip among comic heroes. It's a bomb! [Issue#289]

    Spider-Man exceeded my expectations in every single way. It has its low points, but they are so minor, they become insignificant in the face of its many positive points. Spider-Man is the PS4's second system seller in 2018.

    The game not only fulfills what it promised, but it gives us an original story worthy of a Marvel movie.

    Spider-Man is probably Insomniac’s best game, and the best Spider-Man game to date. A great adventure everyone can enjoy and fans of the superhero will love.

    The Wall Crawler’s open world doesn’t consistently deliver the thrilling moments of its main campaign, but the foundation laid here is undoubtedly a spectacular one.

    In terms of story-telling and direction this might as well be an addition to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with its high production values. But as soon as you stray away from the main plot, you’ll land in an open world that is mostly beautiful to look at, but where some positive elements meet quite a few that are only average at best. Nonetheless a great superhero romp throughout.

    This game shows tremendous love for all things Spider-Man, and the ending packs a punch he would be proud of. But Insomniac relies too much on its hero to elevate the world built around him, with the result that the game wears thin some time before its powerful conclusion.

    Jugabilidad muy buena (Aun que si algo repetitiva) pero que termina encajando bien en el personaje, gráficos muy lindos, una historia muy buena. Quede muy satisfecho, aun que si faltaron algunos detalles como mas interacción en el mundo, pero esta bien, muy muy buen juego y en espera de la secuela.

I took my time with this game and made sure I balanced story with the collectibles and side missions. I've just finished the story and got the last secret landmark as well as the platinum trophy and that's saying something because in my 8 years in owning a ps3 and ps4 I've never platinumed a game. But this game made me want to keep exploring and keep fighting and I have to say its one of the greatest games I've ever played. I was consistently entertained from beginning to end. It never felt boring or slow and the story was fantastic and emotional. It didn't need to be this good but I can safely say it's up there with the other great exclusives.

    The combat was fast and never too complicated but always a challenge and each and every gadget felt useful. Stringing combos and using gadgets at the right time was so satisfying.

    Traversing NY was a blast. A little slow at first but eventually after getting the hang of it I was swinging like the best of them. I only used the subway for the trophy. Connecting swinging with point launching and wall running was super cool and streamlined just enough.

    The story and characters were wonderful and extremely well acted. Yuri Lowenthall and Laura Bailey have outdone themselves and they are not just another Peter Parker and MJ. The supporting characters and the main villain do a great job too. The civilians are also well acted though their voices get repetitive due to only a few actors voicing them.

    It's held back from perfection by a few bugs. Nothing game breaking but distracting. I got trapped in walls at one point, sometimes enemies would get trapped and mechanics that were supposed to work just wouldn't. The controls are tight but also not perfect. They work but expect to accidentally tly target the wrong enemy or run up the wrong wall.

    This is a must play and while it achieves the greatness it advertises it misses the perfect score by a hairs breadth due to distracting bugs and control issues.

However, Spider-Man seemed to be close behind him withIn terms of Superhero games, Batman seemed to be dominating it with the Arkham series. However, Spider-Man seemed to be close behind him with games like the PS1 Spider-Man game, the Spider-Man 2 Movie Game, and Ultimate Spider-Man. But while he was close, he didn't get first place.

    Then out of the bloom at E3 2016, Insomniac Games, the developers of the Spyro and Ratchet and Clank series alongside Sunset Overdrive was tasked to make a Spider-Man video game. I lost my mind. We had to wait two years for the game to come out but man was it worth it.

    Great story, colorful cast of characters, terrific voice acting, beautiful graphics even on a regular PS4 and fun game play is what you expect in this game. There is a variety of stuff you can do in the game and tons to collect. Interact with the streets of New York City and stop crimes. This is the most definitive Spider-Man game I've played. Many people compare the combat to the Arkham games and I can see that, but I get a more Spider-Man 2 Movie Game vibe when fighting baddies. Just think of the game combining the two games together. And web swinging is fluent and fast. I didn't use fast travel a whole lot because of how good it was to swing.

    The only gripe I have is that, while there is plenty of stuff for you to do in the game, it does get a bit repetitive at points.

    Besides that, this is a must own for Spider-Man fans like me. And even if you aren't one, then I think this game could change your mind.
