    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 is a fantastic action game with great movement and combat and a compelling story that's only dragged down from time to time with boring missions and QTE-based boss fights.

    Marvel's Spider-Man does what a lot of good art does, which is examine techniques and concepts that work well, and then blend and refine them to create something unique to itself and possibly greater. I've made this point before: Art and artists have built on and inspired each other since the beginning of time. So yes, I've heard and seen the Spidey/Arkham hot takes, and I ended up not caring at all because at no point did I forget I was playing a Spider-Man experience. I was too busy swinging around in Manhattan, with buildings whipping by as I tailed a police pursuit, thinking about how right it all felt.

    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.

    The best spider-man game ever made since 2002 follow up movie Spider-man 2, yes better than this one. Get some time to get used to the webThe best spider-man game ever made since 2002 follow up movie Spider-man 2, yes better than this one. Get some time to get used to the web swing mechanics, but very fluid after a couple of hours. The combat quick, agile at the same time, and very satisfying when you get a finisher move. The city of New York is alive, civilian driving, celebrating when you pass next to them and doing an activity like doing yoga, dancing and even playing basketball. The music is recognizable, but with the own twist of the composer from insomniac. The graphics are smooth and beautiful nothing wrong to say about that. Insomniac just did the Holy Grail of the superhero genre of game. The storytelling of resistance, the gameplay of sunset overdrive and the humour of Ratchet and Clank have prepared Insomniac games to create the greatest Spider-Man game. It an absolute buy for every fan of the web-swinger and for every ps4 owner. (sorry Xbox players)
    Final word: play this game you won't regret it!

I've ended up really loving the game so far, even though I was not that in to Spider Man before I got the game. They have really caught the feeling of what it would be like to swing around the marvel universe NYC (and it's very much the Marvel universe, with an Avengers tower and a Wakanda embassy among other things). Others have faulted the game for collectibles but I feel like they did a great job with them; I really enjoy picking up the backpacks and seeing what things they have, and I love the huge number of little side missions they have with things like the research stations or the pigeon fetching. I have a PS4 Pro and the graphics I think are amazing, part of why I like the side quests is I just really like swinging around the city. Happily, just when you get to the point where you don't want to swing around the city ALL the time they open up fast travel. MY only complaint would be some of the enemies feel a bit cheap and in some of the (mini?) boss battles it didn't seem like dodge was working properly (I'm looking at you, hellish electrical dude in the bank!!!). But I got through it ok with a bit of effort and the game has really sucked me in. Expand

Она с самого начала скучная, неинтересная, диалоги и тексты заставляют засыпать. Главный герой постоянно умирает даже на лёгком уровне. Всё это превращается в дрочильню по кнопкам и бесконечные бои с врагами, которые все на одно лицо и в одной одежде. Какая то дешёвая поделка, халтура. Expand
