Superheroes with good games, not so many. Spider Man PS4 is lucky to have good adaptations behind him.
With sound and perfect games, as well as the occasional stumble.
Putting on the suit
Spider-Man is an action and adventure game in the open-world starring, obviously, by the Marvel character.
Peter Parker has been wearing the suit for seven years now and is a seasoned superhero.
Of course, you have other problems in your daily life, such as finding a good-paying job, keeping your relationship with Mary Jane afloat, or only paying the rent.
We thus know the story of a more human Spider-Man, who has to juggle to combine his personal life with his “professional” one.
Meanwhile, we are all more than familiar with the superhero. Still, it has been in charge of offering all the necessary information (through objects or conversations) to draw the beginning.
A real treat for comic book fans :
The good thing about starting like this is that we feel like Spider-Man from the first moment, and this is one of the keys.
Insomniac has nailed the sensations, and after a few awkward initial minutes in which we get to the controls, we become him. We can do whatever we want:
However, moving around the city with absolute freedom and agility, Also, swinging and propelling ourselves among buildings.
Before they are fighting with impossible movements and combos in the most unlikely places.
Without going into details, we can tell you that the story is very well informed, and it is great to see certain characters evolve.
The personalities are very well defined, with a Peter Parker always ready for the joke on duty, and the relationships between characters are well working.
Of course, do not expect a memorable story since you can see the vast majority of situations coming as soon as you know the universe.
Optional collectibles and missions with pleasure:
You have often read that the game “lasts 20 hours”, and the truth is that after playing it. We think it would be more appropriate to say that it can be finishing in 20 hours, but it can also last much longer.
We anticipate you since Spider-Man is not incredibly long, but doing it 100% can leave at 30 or 35 hours, depending on the difficulty level and what distractions you are.
It is a game that lends himself to doing everything, as the optional content is very well measured.
These tests or missions never take too long or get tedious and are generally fun and varied. Some are repeated, but others are very original and elaborate, with final bosses and everything.
By way of if that were not enough, through them, we unlock elements to unlock costumes and improve our gadgets, so we have that extra incentive to complete them.
Peter Parker, scientist:
We, too, want to mention how well the scrolling system is making. We could detail and tell you how to link the skills to move around New York like the real spider-man.
Nonetheless, until you have it in your hands and get the hang of it, you will not understand how satisfying it is.
Hours and hours can go by, and you never tire of swinging; it can’t be made better playable or visually.
Of course, our protagonist’s services, this one comprised, can be improved by leveling up. The number 1 of ‘Spider-Man.’
Insomniac has proven to be the perfect studio for Spider-Man.
He has managed to take Spider-Man back to the top of superhero games to do what Rocksteady did with Batman in his day.
Make a game based on a comic that everyone will enjoy. Even if he does not call you particularly the protagonist.
And be careful, if you like Spider-Man, you are going to enjoy it more than anyone.
