    Spider-Man is a splendidly tuned action game with a stunning story, great action and gameplay mechanisms that won’t bore you for a moment. You should not miss out on this trip among comic heroes. It's a bomb! [Issue#289]

    Spider-Man is a fantastic action game with great movement and combat and a compelling story that's only dragged down from time to time with boring missions and QTE-based boss fights.

    Marvel's Spider-Man does what a lot of good art does, which is examine techniques and concepts that work well, and then blend and refine them to create something unique to itself and possibly greater. I've made this point before: Art and artists have built on and inspired each other since the beginning of time. So yes, I've heard and seen the Spidey/Arkham hot takes, and I ended up not caring at all because at no point did I forget I was playing a Spider-Man experience. I was too busy swinging around in Manhattan, with buildings whipping by as I tailed a police pursuit, thinking about how right it all felt.

    Spider-Man is probably Insomniac’s best game, and the best Spider-Man game to date. A great adventure everyone can enjoy and fans of the superhero will love.

    The Wall Crawler’s open world doesn’t consistently deliver the thrilling moments of its main campaign, but the foundation laid here is undoubtedly a spectacular one.

    In terms of story-telling and direction this might as well be an addition to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with its high production values. But as soon as you stray away from the main plot, you’ll land in an open world that is mostly beautiful to look at, but where some positive elements meet quite a few that are only average at best. Nonetheless a great superhero romp throughout.

    This game shows tremendous love for all things Spider-Man, and the ending packs a punch he would be proud of. But Insomniac relies too much on its hero to elevate the world built around him, with the result that the game wears thin some time before its powerful conclusion.

    You can feel the love Insomniac put into this game, and it goes a long way.

This game makes u feel like your Spider-Man and insomniac games nailed that feeling with the web swing, the combat, the characters, the story, and everything else about this game is so spectacular its really that good. This game is one the best super hero games of all time (in my opinion) and you should definitely pick this up for the PS4 because its one the best exclusive game for the playstation 4. Expand

I enjoy it a lot and I got the platinum trophy. Bad sides: the day night system is kind of annoying. Gameplay is not as smooth as god of war. Combat feels repetitive after you 100% the game. Good sides: Boss fights are amazing. I wish it had a boss fight mood. Amazing graphics especially on pro. Overall it's a solid 8.5. Expand

    Great game overall. Sure it take’s from the Arkham series but it also build’s upon it in new and fun way’s. If it work’s then why not. PlusGreat game overall. Sure it take’s from the Arkham series but it also build’s upon it in new and fun way’s. If it work’s then why not. Plus the Arkham fighting system seem’s a lot more suited for Spider-man. Spider sense wise it’s perfect and make’s sense. The graphic’s are beautiful and you can tell Insomniac really put a lot of love and care into this game. Sure it does get a bit repetitive and I’m not defending that. But more time than not you’ll find yourself just enjoying the fact that this game really does make you feel like Spider-Man. A task that for the most part every Spidey game before has failed to do at this level. And without giving away and spoiler’s, the story itself is great. You really feel that the scope of what this “Insomniac-Verse” could become. Now I’m not one for fanboying or just letting the hype influence my opinion so trust me when I tell you that when I say “You must get this game if you are a Spider-Man fan.” I’m not saying that it’s better than God of War because it’s not but it’s up there with the best that Sony has to offer so far this year. You will not be disappointed. Expand

    An engaging story told in a perfect way, a template of impressive characters and exciting plot twists.
    A comic of Spider-Man in movement.

    The combat system is perfect, as is the displacement with cobwebs.
    However, stealth is quite improvable and secondary missions are very bland.

Она с самого начала скучная, неинтересная, диалоги и тексты заставляют засыпать. Главный герой постоянно умирает даже на лёгком уровне. Всё это превращается в дрочильню по кнопкам и бесконечные бои с врагами, которые все на одно лицо и в одной одежде. Какая то дешёвая поделка, халтура. Expand
