The Amazing Spider-Man
Does w/e a spider can!
Finally a good Spider-Man game that lasts more than 2 hours. It's been awhile since I've played a free roam spidey game. Honestly I wasnt a fan of the new movie, but I got over it to play this game. While the suit isnt the classic look I get why its different. The game actually has a good story that makes sense even if it ruins some of the characters like Rhino, but still a great play through. The voice acting for Spider-Man is spot on with the little quips while fightingand swinging through the city. The fighting style almost plays just like Batman Arkham City with the attack button, dodge button and finish button. The main thing I loved about this game is that Spider-Man actually moves like Spider-Man! I know that may seem weird to say, but if you've played other Spidey games you'll understand. To elxplain, when you swing through the the city, Spidey's body movements from flipping, swinging legs and everything is how he moves and not to mention the way he crawls is actually there too. Its those little things that make a great comic book character game and this is one I'd recommend to all Spidey fans!
Awesome, like in the name!
I don't actually own this game, but I have a friend that does. I love it so much, that I'm starting to go through some old games to sell for money to buy it! It's a tad bit pricey, but worth every penny!
The Amazing Spider-Man - Spiderman: Manhattan City
This game was exactly what I wanted after playing the Batman Arkham games. My favorite superhero has always been Spiderman, so I'm happy for a game to finally be made that's similar to the Arkham games. This game doesn't have as much in it as Arkham City, in terms of missions and puzzles, but I was perfectly fine with it being easier. This game is decently long and offers a wide open world of Manhattan to swing around in and has some side missions/minigames. It took me about 13 hours to beat the game and have about 85% overall completion. (the only reason it isn't 100% percent is because I didn't search for all the collectibles)
-Similar to Arkham City
-Web slinging is extremely fun
-Unlock powers as you go
-Pretty fun side missions/events
-Different Spiderman suits to collect and use
-Funny dialougue at certain parts
-Some loading bugs
-Some swinging and web glitches
-When swinging around really fast, and jumping around, it's kind of hard to control your landing and you'll land where you didn't want to
-Standard dialogue from Spiderman gets boring and after a few hours
-A group of standard enemies are usually harder to beat than the bosses, and will cause you to go on dying streaks some
-Install the game
-Wait for/Use unlock points for damage resistance and web shooting speed
-Unless you're going for the collect all 700 comic pages achievement, ignore them.
All in all this game is definitley worth getting. The bugs are only occasional and you will get past them or out of them. The story may get boring and some points, but the game is definitley worth a playthrough.
Beenox is on the right track
Now just let me get one thing straight: Beenox, the current developer for the Spiderman games, have not won me over yet. Between the two games that they did before this one, only Shattered Dimensions was really good. And I'll be totally honest, this game kind of let me down after the epic first trailer they put out for it. That's not to say it's a bad game, it certainly isn't, but it hasn't managed to fully live up to the fantastic free-roam Spiderman games that came out in the past, like Spiderman 2 and Web of Shadows. The gameplay, at it's core, works as well as it should: the action is fast paced, and against giant bosses rather tense (though I really wish there were more than two in the entire game). You have the ability to dodge and counter hits with as much ease as the actual Spiderman would (except bullets, which SHOULD be easy to dodge as Spiderman), and the make-shift wrestling inspired moveset is actually really nice, though one day I would like to see a game that properly uses the Way of the Spider combat style. The game is set up into a series of linear levels with the actual sandbox in between, and overall the two blend nicely. The graphics are impressive, though I noticed that if you go through an area too fast the buildings haven't fully loaded their textures and it looks really bad. The music really fits, giving the feeling of heroism, and maybe a little of the cockiness, that Spiderman fits to perfectly. But here's the main problem with the game: with the exception of being able to replay levels (which is something only the 100% players would use), their is NOTHING to do when you're done with the story. There is only a set number of crimes to stop and other side-missions, and when you do all of them nothing else will appear. This essentially DESTROYS the replay value of the game, especially if you get tired of just swinging around the city at random, with no distractions. And I'm not going to say anything about the web swings not connecting to the buildings, something that they were able to do in the PS2 era, but it still bugs me. In the end though, what Beenox gives us is a Spiderman game that really only goes a little beyond what it needs to do: make it feel like we're playing Spiderman. But in the end, that isn't enough to make it a great game. Graphics and great music and fun fighting mechanics are all very important, and they certainly devliver on those levels as I feel Beenox always has (not including Edge of Time), but there are still certain variables that they need, in a free-roaming game especially, to make it the truly great game that I believe Beenox might be able to give us. Let's just hope they give the proper time and care to make the next Spiderman game as amazing as the character deserves.
Best Spider-Man Game Yet!
This is the best Spider-Man game yet. Beenox took all the good features from previous games and put them all together. Free roaming from Spider-Man 2 and 3, stealth from Spider-Man 1 and Shattered Dimensions, and graphics of the latest Spider-Man games. The collectables are fun to collect, especially when the go on your map once you get 500 of them. And the enemies range from Lizard to Scorpian to random thugs. It took me 22 hours to get 100%, if you are looking for a good Super Hero game, this is it.
Cool, but can be better
This game is great. The story line is great. The only problem with this is their isn't much to do. You can only do story line and free roam. Rest is awesome! The achievements can boost your gamer score A LOT! Not a perfect game, but cool. Get this game.
Best Spider-Man game yet
This is the best Spider-Man game yet, open world swinging is a blast, the main story with the QTEQ (quick time events) were great. side mission were lacking but hopefully the next game will take everything here polish and expand on it.. A MUST BUY IF YOU ARE A SPIDER-MAN FAN.
This game is amazing for comic book lovers and if you like a superhero game with unlockables and suits and more.
one of spideys best!
the graphics are great, story line is amazing, and the final battle could be a lot better. i really recommend this game to anyone who likes a good superhero game.
I think that this is the best spider-man game overall. I just bought it and haven't put the controller down since. swinging into action beating up bad guys, rescuing people and completing challenges make you feel like you are actually Spiderman. I strongly recommend this to anyone that loves to play as a hero. Many hidden suits to find and a big open world to explore all as your friendly neighborhood Spidey.
