This game is like your favorite hoodie.

It’s not revolutionary. It’s an open world game ass open world game.

It’s not my GOTY neither.

It’s exactly what you expect it to be and that’s exactly what it needs to be. Every moment just feels great. I be wanting to eat a bowl of cereal playing this shit but I only got two hands.

It captures being Spider-Man better than the Arkham games captured being Batman, and that’s a high bar to clear.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

This game makes me feel good. It captures spider man perfectly and I find myself wanting to just play it for the web swinging alone, it feels so damn smooth. The story isn't half bad either and I got a small on my face when you know who showed up and you even got to play as them for a bit.

Been rockin that Scarlet Spider suit and the one you get from completing the Black Cat mission.

At least one of those missions is an exact replica, almost down to the villain's power set. Combat isn't quite as good, but not much is

That said, following the template Rocksteady laid out isn't the worst thing, and the game does feel like a fully realized Spiderman universe from the comics. Once you get the web swinging down, it's freaking amazing to swing, glide, zip, run, and crawl across the city.So far nothing but kudos and enjoyment here.

Except for the pigeons. Screw those flying rats

Spider-Man does more in the air than Batman, so I wouldn’t call it Arkham-lite. That gives the combat a different feel, but Batman’s defense felt more technical, so I’d probably still give the combat nod overall to Batman too.

But with Arkham, hearing that crunch with every other counter and combo felt like I was doing irreparable damage to them, instead of simple knockouts.

Not sure how they reconcile how many people I completely kick off of tall buildings.

Not sure any film adaptation will ever be able to match how exiciting/satisfying it is to see Batman kick the shit out of 6 ninjas at once.

He's kind of a fascist and he feels he gotta fuck dudes up to deter crime.

The Arkham games convey that perfectly. You feel the bones breaking.

Spider-Man fucks people up too, but it's not really his goal. He's about jumping in, cracking some weak ass jokes, webbing fools up, and jumping out so the cops can do their job, because Peter Parker is a snitch ass snitch really.

Marvel's Spider-Man conveys that perfectly.

It's hilarious. The combat's definitely a lot like Arkham, but the camera following the action isn't as good, would have been great if there's a reset camera button. I also hate dealing with the fat goons that attack 3-4 times in a row, they're pretty tough to take down.

web them, use your gadgets, or throw people or environmental objects at them. don’t just spam square at them fools. the game wants you to keep your distance and throw shit at their heads.

Trying out the petty crime system to get the combat down for the main story missions. I love getting around the city, though. I've snapped flicks of the Empire State Building and the Sanctum Sanctorum.

The shadows and corners can be a bit much on a standard HDTV. Sometimes it's almost impossible to see who's what and where at night. Rather not fiddle with the contract settings just for one game, but it's not enough to keep me from recommending it or playing it.

It helps that so much of it is on the map already. I was playing Darksiders 2 before I started this, and I'm finding the hidden shit by chance but finding shit with the mini-map would be a wonder when you've found 90% and want to get the rest.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

I mean.... as every game does, the price will drop, or there will be a GOTY version with all the DLC in a year. And if you're one of those gamers that wait for that, fine.

But... it is absolutely worth picking up full price. Some may say it's overhyped, but it really does live up to it, even with its faults. I would easily say you can add it to the list of games that would make you want to buy a PS4 (assuming you're still on the fence at this point) along with, say, Uncharted 4, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn (which is one of the best games I've played on any system) and a few others.<[br />
TL;DR - Get the game

but it doesn't cross over to the YOU GOTTA PLAY THIS RIGHT NOW area.

it's not exceptionally different from other games in the genre and other spider man games.

This would have made a good movie. Even with some issues that didn't make sense and some character turns that could have been done better, this was still a better story than either of the Amazing Spiderman movies.

It's a helluva ride. Not exactly sure I'd call it GOTY, but it's definitely ending up on plenty of top 5 game lists this year. Looking forward to the additional story packs. It's definitely worth getting now, but if you were to wait until the release the game with all the expansion stories and save some money that would be fine (it would definitely help stretch the play time, which ran a little short).

I picked up the Return to Arkham pack on sale ($8!!) so I may jump into that to have a back to back comparison of the two games. I could do Arkham Knight, but I'm not as eager to replay that anytime soon

Oh, and Comic Suit Spidey is the best Spidey. Made it look like Viewtiful Joe

30. "Game is good, story is GREAT"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It took me nearly until the very end of the game to realize just how often I should've been using gadgets and zip-to-point/point launches while web swinging, so once I got to the grindy bit after Act 2 I spent about half of that time just going through the motions when I arguably could've been having the most fun of the game. I've seen a lot of comments about the length of the game being an issue but I played it basically non-stop Monday, Wednesday, a couple hours both Thursday and Friday and then all evening Saturday...I got at least 30 hours out of the thing and I still have a few events left to complete for 100% (this will be my first non-Telltale Platinum ever).


But I was blown away by the level of earnestness, gravitas and attention to detail in the story. There are so many small, human moments in this game. Insomniac one upped every bit of nuance Naughty Dog's cinematic team has become known for; I said elsewhere that if God of War was so impressive due to the amount of emotion they wrung solely from Kratos' eye animations and shading, Insomniac pulled the same trick here with Peter's lips, Doc Ock's cheeks, Aunt May's jawline, Miles' pout, MJ's hesitant smiles. There was something about the facial animation in this game that I was just fascinated by from beginning to end, and it really helped sell what was a semi-original but mostly predictable take on the Peter/Osborne/Octavius love triangle.


There's rough stuff - I'm an obsessive, check boxy sort of guy, so for me I'm less prone to labeling something repetitive as a problem, but there is definitely not a lot of variety to the side content in this game. There are four enemy factions in the end, and they don't open up new types of side activities so much as just give you a handful of the same trials you've been completing with new offensive and defensive strategies. By the same token, I loved how open the boss battle arenas were and how clearly Spider-Man tended to have an upper hand due to his mobility, but I could also understand how the fact that every single one of them boils down to the same basic strategy could bother more mechanics driven players.


The game's also really light on incidental dialogue, which isn't an issue if you just want to mainline the story and do a couple of side activities, but since Parker is a character defined in part by his affinity for quips and sarcasm they really needed more than one or two lines punctuating the completion of side activities. For completionists like me, you hear so few quips so many times that, like they always do in games where this happens, they become your worst enemy and start to convince you the game is less polished than it otherwise is.


Anyway, TL;DR: Spider-Man is a total must play if you're a fan of the character, and runs side by side with God of War for the narrative experience of the year. The graphical polish is maybe the most impressive all year as well, and while the game can sometimes feel like it's both asking too much of the player and not nearly enough, as character action games go it's just as good as any of the best of those and as licensed superhero games go makes a strong case for being the best one yet.

I like Homecoming a bit better.

And of course there are great comic runs. Kraven's Last Hunt. Ultimate Spider-Man.

But it's better than all the Raimi movies. Way better than the Marc Webb movies.

It has the feel of the 90s cartoon with the weight and humanity we've come to expect from PlayStation AAAs.

Even with a relatively small set of skills I'm putting the goon squads down. Most of it comes through experience, I think. I'm nowhere near as nice as I'll be leveling up, but still managing some sick beatdowns (though not photoing anybody in mid fight)

Which is something I never do.

AS SOON as I finished and closed the game a power surge hit. All my storage got corrupted. I had to do a fresh install.

Spider-Man is the only game that had no cloud save.

I got a platinum trophy and no save. I was all hyped for the new game plus too. NOPE.

Nigga gotta download all his games again. haha Video games is trash, I’m about to catch up on TV shows.

I'm gonna have to wait until New Game + to get more Challenge Tokens. I might try my hand at some of the Drone Challenges I only got to Level 2 on, but I don't see myself getting Level 3 on those Stealth Challenges.

The stealth ones I felt were the one to get challenge tokens on. After you figure how to do it, just do it faster, lol. I got 3 on all of them and I am not one of those gamers, but I needed the tokens for the last suit so my hand was forced. I'm just saying you can do it and those are the ones to do it on. Them drones on the other hand. Had to nope the fuck out on those.

not too deep in the game -- already snagged 40/55 backpacks. but I haven't even unlocked the map, and I JUST got the challenge token capability. Trying to level up as much as I can and blend side missions with story missions.

some of the combat can be strenuous, especially if you just run up on a group and try to CQC them. I feel like the best thing to do is keep space, and web attack and bounce again. but i spent *all* day Sunday playing this and it is so damn fun.

So not only was it my first time playing this game, it was my first time touching a playstation controller since PS2.

Graphics are super crisp. Navigating the home screen is not too bad.

The game itself seems fun as hell. Haven't gotten too far. I think I'm in the part of the game where they are still introducing concepts to me like movement and fighting moves. Just activated a couple of surveillance towers and broke up a couple of crimes.

Really looking forward to seeing how deep they made this. But easily the best Spidey game since Spider-Man 2.

P.S. why do PS4 controllers feel so small?

after earning the black cat suit, I rocked that earned suit for a while, but I am now using the old-school-comic-book suit. Looks hilarious super-imposed into the ps4 graphics. i thought the shit talking perk would be better but it kind of sucks.

I finished the game but im going around completing challenges so I can buy all the suits.

When you 100% the game you earn a suit that one hit kills everyone but you also get one hit killed -- that looks fun

I felt like I HAD to unlock all the suits, but really, the Advanced suit makes me feel the most like Spider-Man than any other. The classic comics suit is a close second. Like said above, I thought that "Quips" power was gonna be some cool shit, but I can't even tell what happens when I activate it.

They do require a bit of effort but nothing too unreasonable, unlike most other games. If you can complete all the Taskmaster challenges with the minimum score, you just need to beat a few more with the mid level score to get enough for all the suits... unless you've blown all your challenge coins on equipment upgrades.

I'm pissed right now at this shit. I paid for the dlc's few days ago but game won't let me access. It's downloaded, but is greyed out. I reset my licenses and everything, no dice. Gonna email and try to get my money back.

Got the plat. Finished NG+, ran through the 1st 2 DLCs and will start on the last one over the holiday break. Really happy with how this game turned out, even if the DLC feels like diminished returns at times.

I’m sure that’s what would happen if he were a real person.

66. "Finished the DLC. Nice"

Best played all at once. 1st pack was cool, 2nd was kinda meh, tbh, 3rd part was fire. Most of the Screwball challenges were PITA, but they help out anyone that hasn't got all the challenge tokens from the main campaign.

The suits are...whatever. I'm still mainly using 'Viewtiful Joe' Spidey, but fans finally get the Raimi suit (which I think was a Xmas present not tied to the DLC) and the Peter B. Parker suit from the Spider-Verse movie looks kinda cool. The only other suit I semi care about is the Cyborg suit, and that's mainly because I still have the comic it debuted in (Spiderman #21)

Come to think of it, I have copies of Web of Spider-Man #100 where the 'Colecovision' suit debuted (Thanks Dr. Claw. That name is sticking)

Although, it makes me self-conscious on stealth missions like that shit is glowing or something. It's a good middle ground between the old-timey comics suit and the classic suit.

Loved every minute of the game.
Not too many week spots. The stealth missions where you play as MJ or MM were okay enough.

Working through the DLC now and only need to buy one more suit or gadget.

Future Foundation and the Bagman skins. I love this game's dedication to letting you rock whatever dumb shit you chose to fight in during the cutscenes.

Also, I think this is the first game I've played where the first playthrough really prepared me for NG+/hardest difficulty.

I had a tough time with some of the earlier bosses on the first play through, but I’m breezing through story missions on Ultimate.

i kinda slow played thru the main bc i liked having a suped-up Spidey, but if I can roll with all my earned skills in early game?!?! It'll be fun again, especially on Ultimate.

It's challenging, but only in the sense you have to be somewhat aware of your gadgets (more like Batman in that sense) and use your meter for health recharges way more often than focus takedowns, which I'm fine with because you hit so hard it's just two combos for non-Sable baddies anyway.


But being able to ignore the repetitive side content because you've already done it and NG+'s only trophies are beating it and beating it on Ultimate really makes it clear how much of a breeze (in terms of momentum and execution) the regular campaign is. Even the throwaway stuff like the story-critical hacking challenges are just great at telling the story through alternate styles of gameplay (I also still think the stealth sections are perfectly fine).

Between this game and Spider-Verse (rope in Homecoming on VOD and Infinity War in theaters if you want), 2018 really might've been the best year for Spider-Man fans in decades.
