A Spider-Man adventure for Playstation

Marvel’s Spider – Man was a really fun play that I was happy to put time into. I considered buying the DLC but I didn’t end up doing so.

The hardest part about this review is considering what I can and can’t say as this game is very story driven, I don’t want to spoil too much. I will try to avoid it as much as possible.

Spider – Man is developed by Insomniac Games and was published by Sony in September 2018, it is only available on PlayStation 4 because it is a PlayStation exclusive. If you don’t have a PlayStation 4 you will likely never be able to play this game.

The game starts off with the camera moving around Peter Parkers messy, unorganised apartment. We see photos of Uncle Ben and Aunt May, a spider, some sketches, ideas for gadgets, web-slingers, empty takeout noodles, circuit boards and there are some empty jars with labels on them saying things such as “vacation $$$” and “New Laptop $.” We also see his spider mask and a cracked laptop.

Then we see Peter in bed when his phone begins to buzz. He gets suited up, has some toast and you get thrown right into a quick tutorial on swinging.

After making it to your destination you get to start fighting some enemies and pulling off sick moves. You make your way through Fisk Tower where you learn how to dodge, save citizens and take down some more basic enemies.

When you reach Fisk, he has a surprise for you… two giant turrets which you jam up, then throw at the bullet-proof glass Fisk is hiding behind him.

Fisk then faces you himself, it’s your first boss fight but it’s not exactly easy when you are only just starting to figuring out the controls – it does take a couple of attempts.

That’s all I’m going to spoil, although I thought I should take just a quick moment to talk about the controls.

They wanted Spider – Man’s swinging to be as realistic as possible by always having him swing from a building, unlike in earlier games where it just connected to the sky. In saying that they have got it to work and somehow also be really smooth – they get bonus credit for that.

May I also say that there is one death scene in the game, it is not gruesome, there is no blood but it is emotional and also may not be suitable for younger gamers.

I give it an 8/10

Age Rating: M – Due to violence and a death scene.
