Swingin’ Round The City

Let me start out from the jump saying that Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4) is a blast! In this game we get to play an older (though still in his 20s) Spider-Man, one who has years of experience under his belt. Along with already established relationships with many of his most iconic villains. The game clocks in roughly around 16 or so hours, leaving loads more time for exploring, side missions, etc.

Spider-man (PS4) is a great trip into the worlds of both Spider-Man and Peter Parker. There are some side missions that help to flush out the world, and some welcome inclusions of characters you may not know much about if you aren’t a huge comic book fan. The New York City of the game feels very much alive, and it feels great to just swing around before diving into helping some citizens, beat up on some criminals, or completing a mission to advance the story. While the pacing of the story could use a little work, the villains and Spider-Man/Peter’s relationships with them are the highlight of this game.

Pro’s:
Good story
Swinging around feels spectacular
Multiple gadgets, showing off Spider-man’s scientific side
Multiple ways to take down enemies (stealthy, straight on, setting traps)/expansive skill tree

Con’s:
Some story pacing issues

 

Overall a great game (one with it’s own “after credits” scene which I won’t spoil for you). I eagerly await the inevitable sequel.

I give it a 9/10.
