Normally, I'm not very into these "super hero" games like Infamous, Prototype, Crackdown, Agents of Mayhem, etc. because the quests, side quests and collectibles often end up feeling like monotonous tasks on a checklist and the story an afterthought. Additionally, the gameplay tend to be a bit repetitive due to the limited variation in combat (no weapons) and traversing (no accessible cars). Lastly, the worlds in these games tend to have less variation, details and interactions.

For me, Spider-Man suffers a little bit from these points as well but overall I've been positively surprised so far. Playing on the hardest difficulty makes the combat fun and challenging. I'm loving the boss fights. And yeah, web-slinging through streets and blocks is pretty amazing.

im waiting for the game of the year edition in a year or so after the dlc has been included for a reasonable price.

interesting takes so far, still seems like some love it or just meh about it, havent really seen anything much about anyone hating it.



 

I'm not going to lie. I wanted to like this game but I didn't.
Now, I love it. So much fun. My favorite game so far this year.

Webswinging is a lot faster than in the PS2 game. Sometimes it can be so fast that its easy to lose momentum, and wind up walking through the street, or crawling on the side of a building. I've unlocked the ability to hit X twice in order to gain speed, and that has made it a lot easier to stay in the air. When finding backpacks, crimes, or other things on rooftops, I find myself drastically overshooting the landing zone. I wish there was a braking ability or something. I haven't unlocked all the webswinging abilities though, so it may be there down the line. Also, it may just come down to how skilled I am with the game.

Stealth is fun, but a bit difficult. Wide open spaces like the Fisk construction sites are a lot different than the claustrophobic stealth areas in the Arkham games. Batman just has more gadgets, and ways to take enemies out. But then again, I haven't unlocked anywhere near all of the gadgets that Spidey has in this game. I also, haven't had the game teach me every last stealth attack yet. Currently doing a mission where I have to take enemies out in an art gallery. I kind of wish Spidey had the ability to hide behind corners, and do takedowns that way, but that would take away from the feeling of being Spiderman.

Combat is really good, and there's definitely a way to make Spidey airborne the entire fight, but I haven't mastered it. Enemies with guns are really annoying. Can't wait to unlock the ability to yoik guns out of their hands.

Being able to customize your suit with different gadgets and abilities is great. I hope there's a way to save favorite setups.

The game gives you ways to earn extra XP such as stealthing three enemies, but I 'm having trouble figuring out how to get the list to appear during combat. 

TL/DR: Having fun, but haven't learned everything yet. I feel like I'm playing BotW, and have just barely left the Great Plateau.

You can use web shots (default R1 gadget) to lure enemies to specific spots. Hold L2, aim with analog at the spot you want to lure then press R1. Enemies close enough will get a question mark above their head and will walk to spot.

Clicking R3 will do a scan of enemies in area. When looking at one close enough, you'll see a *danger or *safe by them. If they have *safe by them then you can stealthily attack them without alerting anyone. The square attack will web them to you and hide body in web if used from a wall or perch. The triangle attack will just launch you to their location and knock them out silently but it will leave a findable body there.

You can use L2 then R2 to move to a perch (when white circle appears at spot) or the ceiling or wall (when reticle turns green).

Stealth is fairly easy once you learn all that.

Yeah, the game just barely showed me all that before I left for work. I need practice. 



Just finished it, really awesome game but some of the side-content can get really tedious after a while. But gameplay itself is awesome and this game has some of the best and most fun boss-fights i have ever fought



Switch friend-code: 6700-1526-7903

PSN: melbye82

downloading now..hopefully it is done by today with my crap connection speed



I gotta revise what I said in the OP. The game is more the just a fun Spider-man game and a decent story it's an awesome Spider-man game with a story as good as the best of the films in the last 15 years. And as for the side content, it's not all that bad as the gameplay is so fun and there are interesting actual side missions with stories in and of themselves. It's actually way better than I thought, my initial few hours.

I'm enjoying it quite a bit so far
