    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.

    This game is beautiful the graphics are amazing and how they build up the story this game meant so much to me because time after time peopleThis game is beautiful the graphics are amazing and how they build up the story this game meant so much to me because time after time people tried to make a good Spider-Man game I loved Spider-Man 2.This game has some great mechanics like the web slinging and the spider sense.Whats also amazing is that you get to play as Peter,Mj,Miles morales it’s not just a game about Spider-Man it’s also about him and his friends and loved one . I have to say that insomniac have made a Great Spider-Man game it feels like they cared about the project and put some effort towards it. the suits have so much detail like the iron spider it glows up the wall when you get nearby one . Overall this game has to be the best Spider-Man game ever Expand

    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!

    Un juego excelente sin lugar a dudas. Desde Spider-Man 2 para PS2 no ha habido un juego del trepamuros que esté a su altura, hasta esteUn juego excelente sin lugar a dudas. Desde Spider-Man 2 para PS2 no ha habido un juego del trepamuros que esté a su altura, hasta este septiembre. Gráficamente muy bueno; la estética de los personajes están muy logradas. Las animaciones muy acordes con el personaje, con movimientos ágiles y fluidos. Un sistema de combate impresionante. La adición de gadgets le dan al personaje más fidelidad con los cómics, además de mayor opciones de combate. El balanceo es de lo más destacado: fácil y fluido, al igual que espectacular. La ambientación de la ciudad impecable. Una banda sonora digna de Spider-Man que te sumerge más en el juego. Una historia acorde con el personaje y con una buena trama. En mi opinión, las actividades y delitos podrían haberse aumentado, siendo bastante repetitivos. Además, la inclusión de personajes jugables como Mary Jane o como Miles Morales no aportan nada al juego, cuyas misiones son prácticamente idénticas y muy simples. Aún así Marvel's Spider-Man es un juego excelente e imprescindible. Expand

    To be fair when I first saw trailer I thought, this will be good looking game with bad controlls, cheese story with dull characters and emptyTo be fair when I first saw trailer I thought, this will be good looking game with bad controlls, cheese story with dull characters and empty map. Two days ago a bought it to fill the waiting for RDR2 and it took about 20 minut for me to realise this weekend I will stay home, finish it on 100% and enjoy every minute of this amazing game. Rich story with memorable characters, main missions are well made with well balanced difficulity, boss fights are best from all superhero games I have played, but still the same concept you can see in batman for example. Sidequests are typical for these games, but Spidey will keep you entertained with his constant, mostly very funny monologs. In some point of 1 Act fast travel will be aviliable, which is for me normally great news, this is one of a few exceptions, because flying over city with simple yet effective controlls is so addictive and fast, that you will use fast travel maybe for trophy. Last thing I actually knew that insomniac will deliver are fun and effective gadgets and armors with usefull upgrades. They sure know how to make battle extremely fun using hands, legs and spiderweb against guys with rifles and rocket launchers. Even batman would make a bad symbol in his trousers, Parker is fast combo machine that sometimes you dont even know how or what you did, but it looks cool AF and it was smooth.

    Must play and in means of pure fun, absolutely best superhero game.
    10/10.... for superhero game
    9/10...to be fair, since it is "just" another superhero concept

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Marvels fans go their way by putting in a top of the year a dul clone of a truly great game of DC comics. Seriously, Spider-man is worse than the Arkham trilogy in almost everything. Dead city, repeated side missions, and disgusting boss battles. Expand
