    Overall, I’m very impressed with the product Insomniac released, and it raises my expectations for what other companies are willing to put out with their names attached. While I have issues with some of the beats in the final chapter, I have zero qualms recommending it for anyone who enjoyed the main game. And for those that didn’t, well, they just don’t like fun anyway.

    It felt shorter than the past episodes, but also satisfying to see this story arc come to an end. The surprise cameo was much appreciated, but I think we all knew that character wasn't really dead.

    Silver Lining didn’t surprise me much but it was a fun enough time overall.

    Much like its predecessors Silver Lining is over in an hour with a slight extension offered for sidequests, and three more suits. Then bam, there's a proper Stan Lee dedication, credits roll, and the wait begins. Hopefully Spider-Man 2 builds on top of everything we've seen so far, including the DLC trilogy.

    Silver Lining is another excuse to strap on the web shooters and play more of one of 2018’s best games, but it makes that excuse in a way that feels complacent.

    Silver Lining is not the best finale that we all expected. Silver Sable is a good character, Hammerhead remains awful, Watanabe has disappeared. Two hours of gameplay are not sufficient to explain everything, and the results are visible by everyone.

    Marvel's Spider-Man: Silver Lining wraps up the City That Never Sleeps storyline, but the hints towards a sequel make for a strange ending. A handful of new things to do will keep Spidey fans satisfied, and each side activity rewards you with some neat narrative details. It's a pretty by the numbers add-on, and if you enjoyed the rest of Insomniac's superhero title, there's no reason you won't like this. We'd have preferred a little more oomph for the DLC's finale, but the silver lining is that the implications for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 are definitely interesting.

В первом DLC была интересная история, но недостаточно зрелищности, второе дополнения держалось только за счёт великолепной игровой механики игры, а главная тема сюжета не была раскрыта в должной мере, но 3-ее DLC имеет хорошую режиссуру, которая идёт равномерно и имеет интересную и законченную историю. Но выполнять очередные испытания Чудилы и зачистку баз уже не было сил - это и является главным минусом дополнения. И отдельное спасибо, Insomniac, за костюм из фильмов Рэйми. И мне очень жаль, что вы подверглись нападкам неадекватного меньшинства из тех игроков, которые благодарны вам за лучшую игру про Человека-паука на данный момент. С нетерпением жду втору. часть.

Much of the content in this game feels like side activities that should have been in the main game. From the first DLC, "The Heist" it was apparent that these stories should have been in the main game. The stories were good but very short and would have worked perfectly in the main game. The gameplay is still great but repetitive, especially when there isn't as much to do. It's unfortunate that these DLCs weren't great like the main game but at least we got some more content. Expand

They're plenty of fan-service,I just finished playing through with this game today, and it was a fairly nice finale to the DLC trilogy. They're plenty of fan-service, references, easter eggs, and loose ends tied from previous DLC for fans to enjoy. The main story missions also made me content.

    The main problems, however, is (first) how rushed and cheesy the ending is. They ruined Hammerhead by making him a giant cyborg out of the blue, he shows up out of the blue for the final fight with no buildup, and the environment you fight in doesn't allow for you to do much except dodge, punch, dodge, punch, buttom mash, repeat.

    The other thing is how ridiculously difficult the side missions have become. What were once simple and straightforward side missions have now become giant waves upon giant waves of super-tough enemies. Not necessarily fun; just "Dark Souls" levels of challening. Sure they're the missions that offer the most interesting content that gives us enough conclusions from previous DLC's as well as setting up material for a future sequel, but they truly make you work for it.

    I truly loved Spiderman, the base game.

    I really disliked the DLC.

    To be clear; I commend Insomniac for putting our a non-essential DLC and at least correlating to the main game (think The Witcher 3), but the re-tooling of values and damage weights nearly broke the entire experience for me. Base enemies, using weapons found in the base title taking 75% health from one hit in the expansion made simple tasks a chore. Side quests are more of the same but somehow more infuriating. The base game Screwball missions were fine; the expansion versions were WAY over-tooled (all three chapters). Crime fighting missions either were broken (not being able actually to take out cars in motion) or just having too many on screen with too much HP and having weapons that in the prior game did decent damage now do absurd amounts made everything feel like a slog.

    The story is the saving grace, but just so. I enjoyed it, but nowhere near the base title. Still, I am looking forward to whatever is going to be the Marvel Video Game Universe, and this is an excellent precursor to what's to come.

    It's hard for me to tell anyone to pick it up. If you liked the base game, but just so, ignore the DLC (don't waste your money). If you LOVED the base game, it's not a must-have, but you'll be able to ignore the weaknesses to plum the better parts there is to get.
