ADG Short And Simple Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Video Game)

By
Posted on May 12, 2014 AT 07:25pm

Product Specifications:

Publisher: Activision
Developer: Beenox
Release: April 29, 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii U, 3DS & Windows PC *PS4 digital copy used in this review.
Category: Action, Adventure, Open World
ESRB: T (Teen); E10+ (3DS version only)

So Beenox has the power to put the action and adventure of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in your hands in a new video game. They decide to not directly approach the movie but start where the last adventure left out and also recap on Peter’s issues dealing with Uncle Ben’s death. They throw in a few other villians such as Kingpin and Kraven that aren’t in the move to make the game more star studded.

The problem with this game isn’t the roster. It’s the gameplay itself. Spidey doesn’t seem to swing as smoothly as he should. In fact, sometimes even Spider-Man says it himself in game. I believe it was something along the lines of ” I guess swinging in New York City is even hard sometimes on a spider”. That isn’t the direct quotation but you get my point.  The animation for the PS4 which I played seemed a little glitchy and not smooth.  The other problem within the game least on the PS4 is that the graphics aren’t nothing to brag about.  I’m still wanted to check out the past gen versions just to see how far if there is any leap or difference much between the two.

The good things about the games are the unlockables and the lore for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 fans.  The story at times can be captivating.  I marked out to see Stan Lee and several other characters in the game.  It can be a fun stroll but I don’t know if even the array of suits and unlockables will keep everyone coming back for more.

Short And Simple…

Beenox’s Spidey Sense Is A Little Off

6.8/10 Play It..but don’t expect to be blown away.
