    Spider-Man is a splendidly tuned action game with a stunning story, great action and gameplay mechanisms that won’t bore you for a moment. You should not miss out on this trip among comic heroes. It's a bomb! [Issue#289]

    Spider-Man exceeded my expectations in every single way. It has its low points, but they are so minor, they become insignificant in the face of its many positive points. Spider-Man is the PS4's second system seller in 2018.

    The game not only fulfills what it promised, but it gives us an original story worthy of a Marvel movie.

    Spider-Man is probably Insomniac’s best game, and the best Spider-Man game to date. A great adventure everyone can enjoy and fans of the superhero will love.

    The Wall Crawler’s open world doesn’t consistently deliver the thrilling moments of its main campaign, but the foundation laid here is undoubtedly a spectacular one.

    In terms of story-telling and direction this might as well be an addition to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with its high production values. But as soon as you stray away from the main plot, you’ll land in an open world that is mostly beautiful to look at, but where some positive elements meet quite a few that are only average at best. Nonetheless a great superhero romp throughout.

    This game shows tremendous love for all things Spider-Man, and the ending packs a punch he would be proud of. But Insomniac relies too much on its hero to elevate the world built around him, with the result that the game wears thin some time before its powerful conclusion.

    My little life story!
    NB! Sorry for bad english non-english speaking guy.

    My wife is not a huge video game fan, she is more like a video game hater, but only until we start to play PS4 exclusives. Together we have completed God of War, Uncharted series, Detroit - Become a Human, Spider-man (currently), Playlink game series, Horizon - Zero Dawn.
    So basically my wife is my personal "metacritic" when is see that she got interest in the game I play, that means that this game is "a special one" and we will finish it together. PS4 exclusives made my wife look on video games from different angel.

    Great job Insomniac!

Didn't regret the purchase for a second as the graphics are top notch, framerate is 30, which doesn't bother me and the most important thing, the gameplay, is solid, fluid and responsive. My favorite series is the Batman Arkham -series and this closely resembles those games. I think the web slinging though is much more fun than batman's gliding mechanics, so that's a huge plus to this game. The stealth is not as good in this game as it is in the Arkham -games, but I think spider-man altogether is a much more head first kind of superhero because he actually has superpowers. Acting is great, has an interesting story, cool unlockables like different costumes and skills etc.
    All in all, one of my favorite games on PS4 to date. At first I was bummed out that it wasn't coming to PC, but the PS4 is very capable of running this one. I am planning on doing a platinum trophy in this game, as I did for Arkham Knight, and I'm certain it's going to be a fun ride. Get this if you haven't, this is definitely GOTY material for 2018.

    Let's start with the graphics, this is one of the biggest advantages in the game, this is not some kind of breakthrough in the graphics, butLet's start with the graphics, this is one of the biggest advantages in the game, this is not some kind of breakthrough in the graphics, but it's nice to look at it. The costumes are made perfectly without any complaints, you can see all the details (I especially like the way the costume from "Homecoming" looks like). Atmosphere: New York itself is not bad, I agree that the city sometimes seems to be plastic, but the game has never been declared as "GTA" in the style of Spider-Man. Plot: In the beginning it seemed to me that it would be something like Amazing Spider-Man 1,2, all because the introduction is quite similar to the previous parts, but after I realized that this is a masterpiece (Thanks for the ending Insomniac Games). Action: this is also a masterpiece, this part of the game from Insomniac Games was 100% successful (And I do not understand people who say "That copy from Batman, everyone can, nothing new" firstly, what’s wrong, that the developers take the best and insert This is a game, and secondly, this is not a copy of Batman, check it out. Checkpoints are a separate topic here I do not understand the logic of Insomniac Games, how would we add stealth, but there’s no point in it, why it was impossible to do this: if a person has passed 1 wave on stealth, then the waves will not continue further, otherwise it’s kind of stupid you walk in stealth and here opponents notice you sharply. There are a huge amount of references. I also liked the idea of ​​scientific stations, which is quite interesting. As for portfolios that can be found all over the map, in any other game I would not care for it and I’d definitely not I did, but in this game everything is done correctly, you will learn what is new about the history of Peter. I can say with confidence that this game is a masterpiece. My score is 9/10. Expand
