Rated 7 out of 10 by Mckintay81 Good Spidey game!!!
I'll admit I didn't like the game at first but after an hour or two I started to get into it. First off the graphics could be better since this is next gen but they're ok I guess. It's fun web slinging through the city finding people in distress and helping them. But I honestly feel like that's the low point of the game. The actual city seems really bland and just not a lot going on. Where I feel the game shines is the actual missions where it sort of takes you to rural parts of the city and it gives you a better experience and a different vibe. The boss battles are pretty good as well. The combat is pretty fluid when Spidey sense goes off you can press triangle to counter and keep the action going. Countering is a must in this game just like the Arkham series. Overall I'd say this is a solid game Spidey/Marvel fans or anyone looking for an action game should give it a go. This game is far from great and far from terrible so I'd give this game in my honest opinion a 7 out of 10.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SoWrongItsTyler This game is AMAZING just as it says in the title!
I had high hopes for this game since I am a huge Spider-Man fan and boy did it deliver! The story mode was fantastic with many iconic villains to fight and the boss fights were superb. I love how you were able to play as Peter in this one which is something that bothered me about the last game. The new improved web swinging is literally perfection! The last game you could just role R2 and you would swing around but this improved web swinging actually requires strategy and skill. The graphics looked really bad in the trailers I had seen but when I got the game I was blown away by how great the graphics were. This game was a huge improvement from the first TASM game and I really enjoyed the first one. The only flaw and i mean only flaw about this game is the story mode was really short or so it felt short because all I wanted was more. For Spier-Man fans, this is an absolute must buy game and for non Spider-Man fans that are just looking for a great game, I would definitely recommend this game a thousand times over again!
Rated 9 out of 10 by grizzly215 Spider_Man FTW!!!!!
I will say that I love Spider-Man he is my favorite superhero and I have played multiple Spider-Man games with that said here we go. I bought this for the PS4 and I just beat it and not being biased I don't know why there is all the HATE on this game that there is. I personally loved the game. I loved the boss fights as well as the free roam and the combat was Awesome. My only gripe would be that it got annoying sometimes to do a side mission just to keep the hero meter from going to the menace level but I got over that. I spent probably 8 to 10 hrs playing it maybe a little less but regardless I had fun with the game and yes I did beat it. I saw the new movie in IMAX and a lot of people are complaining that the game models and voices are nothing alike and while that is true it didn't kill the vibe of the game at all in my opinion. I would recommend this game to all Spider-Man fans and fans of superheros in general.
Rated 7 out of 10 by skateinferno A good game,but lacks in side missions.
I feel that this game could have been better. Instead of using money from their budget on the annoying hero/menace indicator, I believe the developers should have focus more on side missions, and things to do after the initial completion of the game. Instead, we are forced to do the same monotonous things over and over again for civilians so we won't be hunted down by huge robots and special soldiers when all I would like to do is have a nice swing around town while maybe fighting off different famous Spider-Man villains aside from those in the main story. Although I have some issues with this game, I felt that it met my expectations of keeping up the web-slinging fun and action of the first game during the story missions. The game lacks in lasting appeal as well, but if you don't play all that much, it shouldn't be a problem. I would definitely invest in a third installment, despite my complaints.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Hero4Life A Better Spun Web for Spiderman
I am a huge Spiderman fan and I have played just about every one of the Spiderman games. I loved it back when Spiderman 2 came out and you could web sling around the city, I lost my mind. From there they added this feature to a lot of their games but this new game took it to a whole new nerd level for me. I like the fact that there is a free flow combat style like the Batman Arkham games and a bit of a Splinter Cell element of hiding in shadows and sneak attacking your enemies. The fact that each costume have levels you max out and different abilities that gave this game a new feature. With a short but well done story and next gen graphics its hard to not like this game. Granted the hero or menance system was kind of annoying I would still recommend this game to not just Spiderman fans but anyone else who may be interested in the hero free roam experience.
Rated 2 out of 10 by spaceballs9988 worst spider-man game by beenox to date
from gameplay threw presentation the game is horrible and becomes repetitive way before any normal open world game should it swinging is a chore i like the idea of L2 for left hand or r2 for right hand however it becomes a problem also the camera is a major pain in the butt then ever graphics look like it was nothing more then a ported over verison to the PS4 spiderman says the same things over and over and over you repeat the same missions over and over again way more then you should in a open world game this is the worst spiderman game i have ever played and this is the worst beenox spider man game they have ever put out
Rated 0 out of 10 by ad11397 Has potential.
The Amazing Spider-Man video game released back in 2012 and I was really excited for it and when it came out, I really did enjoy it. I have been a Spider-Man fan ever since I can remember and I loved the games back on the Playstation 2 such Spider-Man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man. With this being a movie tie-in, I should not have expected much but looking at previews and gameplay, I couldn't help but to be excited for it. The combat was extremely fun and it took from the Arkham series but maid it very "Spidey-ish." The jokes and one-liners were pulled off well and it just felt like a fun game overall. It did have its downsides too however but nonethless, I enjoyed it. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is taking the open-world of New York to a whole new level with more events and even adding a "Hero or Menace" mode which really reminds me of inFAMOUS, an excellent videogame series. The graphics, so far as I have seen, look subpar however but maybe that is just the art style and I have to get a look at actual gameplay to judge it, not just a trailer. If Beenox can pull this off, we might just get another classic superhero game in our hands. Can't wait.

Rated 0 out of 10 by 021601 This Could Possibly be AMAZING
Since the Amazing Spider-Man came out I was fascinated with it, it's action,ability, and most of all the feeling of being the actual Spiderman with so many action I totally like it. This game should do it im believing that this game could bring back the Spiderman from Spider-Man 2 (2004) which was greater than The Amazing Spider-Man. There are many rumors the movie and game can suck since the failure of Spider-Man 3 but people should really give this a chance. Sounds great that theres the system called "Hero or Menace" and its advanced combat moves also that you could play as peter sounds great but about the "Web Arsenal" sounds a bit not great the fact that you can freeze sounds like something Spiderman does not do. Give it a chance it can be Amazing.
Rated 4 out of 10 by SirWalksalot Not worth $60
The game play is alright. Combat with the minions/mobsters are harder than the actual bosses. Every boss you are told or shown how to beat them, there is no thinking for yourself. "Stealth" mode is often glitchy and however, this approach is more favorable than the drawn out fights against several enemies.
The biggest problem is there is literally little to no desire to play it again. Maybe a second time to achieve what trophies you lack, however you can get nearly all of them in a single play through. I recommend anyone considering to buy this game, wait for it to become MUCH cheaper and even then, buy it used. Currently, you would not be getting your money's worth.
