Spider-Man is out and it lives up to the hype. Insomniac Games latest installation of Spider-Man came out on September 7, and it is their most passionate project to date. Unlike the past Spider-Man games, it is only playable on PS4.

Spider-Man is now 23 years old and still living in New York City. You also get to play as Peter Parker when he’s not Spider-Man. When he is not web-slinging, Peter Parker is a scientist and all of his enemies are locked up. As Spider-Man loses time to be Peter Parker, his world’s both collide, adding a fresh twist to the series.

Spider-Man is already a seven-year-veteran, so when you jump into the game you are literally falling out of the sky, followed by fighting goons. Insomniac nailed it on Spider-Man’s movement. The last time fans felt like Spider-Man was on Spider-Man 2, 2002. His movement is fluid, easy to control, and visually pleasing. A new feature is the skill tree. Your options to upgrade under the skill tree includes: Innovator, Defender, and Web Slinger. This Spider-Man has the most gadgets and the most suit options. The graphics are fantastic and it truly captivates New York City.

The graphics, gameplay, story, movement, and immersion of it are spot-on.”

The story of this Spider-Man has a variety of scenes including scenes as Peter Parker. One mechanic that had seemed a little silly is how the day/night cycle only followed story missions. The reason it worked was because the story missions seamlessly came one after another.

Spider-Man PS4 is loaded with Pros. The graphics, gameplay, story, movement, and immersion of it are spot-on. The con is that this game is exclusively for PS4. The default version of Marvel’s Spider-Man is $59.99. ESRB rating is rated T. This game gets a 9/10.
