Now, I’m not here to get into the politics of the best Peter Parker portrayals … but if I was, I would tell you that this game gives us the best Peter Parker I have seen! (Closely followed by Tom Holland!)
I can’t get enough of Spiderman, I think he is an excellent superhero in every way, his awkward humour is second to none, and his personality is strong enough to make you forget he is just a character!
What I’m basically getting at, is that a Spiderman game is TOTALLY MY JAM.
This is by far the best Spiderman game that we’ve had so far in my opinion, featuring a slightly older Peter Parker with all the fun humour and awkward geekiness that we have come to expect from the web-slinging hero!
The gameplay here is phenomenal, the web slinging is very satisfying, and gradually gets better as you gain speed through level ups. You also have a a large choice of new moves and upgrades available to unlock as you gain levels.
As you can imagine, there are lots of things for Spidey to do around the city! There are lots of enemy bases to be cleared out, crimes to be stopped, referential collectibles to find, challenges to complete, and plenty more. As you complete these various tasks, you will also be able to unlock new suits that you will most likely recognise if you are a fan of Spiderman.
Honestly, there isn’t a single part of this game I haven’t enjoyed. I just love swinging around New York City as Spiderman, I love watching the startled pedestrians fall over as you land next to them from a great height, I love watching the story cutscenes unfold with all of the familiar faces we know so well, and I love tackling the Spiderman’s various enemies with his assortment of gadgets and skills!
You might hear a familiar voice as you’re swinging through the streets … None other than the infamous character J. Jonah Jameson! You can expect to hear him shouting about his ludicrous thoughts and opinions about Spiderman on his podcast – provided you haven’t turned it off in the options menu! Personally I find it hilarious, listening to the callers talking about how Spidey saved them and does so much for the city, and Jameson tried to put his negative spin on it.
As of yet, I have not played the DLC, so I can’t pass comment on how that is. I do know that it is definitely DLC that I will be getting though, if the rest of the game is anything to go by, then it will most certainly be worth it.
I’m not sure what else I can say about this fantastic game without making myself sound like some star-struck goof (did I successfully hide my unending love for Spiderman?) so I’ll just say this. FULL RECOMMENDATION.
