Hello my normies, Paul Neon Davidson here. This will be the first time I do a full-on written review. It’s about the recently released PS4 Spider-Man game. I also have a video of me playing the first hour in the end so check it out if you can. Please :3.
Spider-Man has been released for PS4 and it has got be one of the most glorious PS4 exclusives I have ever played. It’s possibly the best Spider-Man game released to date.
A lot of people would compare this game to the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham games and while they both feature similar combat systems Spider-Man manages to still make the game feel unique with Spidey’s web-slinging abilities. Tie up enemies, sling yourself toward them for greater impact, throw projectiles at your foes, and with extra upgrades that can be unlocked through XP combat in this game never ceases to please.
Your webs also allow for fast and acrobatic travel across New York City, which includes nods to Dr. Strange’s Sanctum and even Ghostbusters surprisingly (see below). You can sling across New York or just walk about and talk to civilians, some of which you can even give a high-five to adding to your XP. Graphically speaking I feel Spider-Man gives GTA 5 a run for its money and the open world allows for some amazing exploration that the previously addressed web-slinging emphasizes.
Along with the story focused missions are some side missions which add to the play time and replayability of the game guaranteeing a 30+ hour long game that could take even longer to 100%. The story and the game are set in their own universe not based on any movie like previous game and the story is enjoyable with a lot of Spidey’s iconic rogue gallery coming out to play and each with a unique boss battle. The cutscenes feel like a movie and have great characterizations for Peter and his usual gang including Aunt May, MJ, and Harry Osborne. It’s a good balance of originality, nods to the movies, and comic book campiness.
I can’t say it enough and a lot of other reviewers agree, Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 is AMAZING, SPECTACULAR, SUPERIOR, and is friendly to all in the gaming neighborhood.
