Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 Review

Marvel’s Spider-Man is an action-adventure game developed by Insomniac Games and released on September 7th, 2018, to the PS4, receiving praise from both critics and gamers alike.

The question I am here to ask is: does it really live up to the praise? Is this truly a genre-defying game? That’s what I am going to answer. This is my review of Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Quick note: this is just my opinion. If you disagree with me, that is completely fine.

The story of this game revolves around Spider-Man, who beats Wilson Fisk, a crime lord he has been dealing with for years. Spider-Man’s triumph over this does not last long, as he is plunged into a uprising of criminals.

Story-wise, this game is superb, with a plot that will keep gamers engaged and Spider-Man fans squealing for its roughly 10-hour completion time. The story also has some events that may surprise you.

The game also explores Spider-Man’s life as a regular person, Peter Parker, and shows that he has his everyday struggles, just like all of us.

Without giving anything away, the story is absolutely amazing. 8.5/10

Gameplay: The game’s combat system involves battling the AI with normal fist to fist combat, and gadgets and upgrades you get as you progress through the campaign and complete side tasks.

The focus bar is a bar that fills up as you battle your enemies, and you can use it to heal yourself or, once the bar is full, perform a takedown on an enemy.

Stealth combat involves performing perch takedowns or web strike takedowns on enemies who are safe to take out. If an enemy is not safe to take out, another enemy is very close by and can see the other AI. You can lure the enemies out with web shooters, making it safe to take down the other AI.

Finally, stealth sections with other characters are present in the game. These are definitely the more mundane parts of the game. These consist of sneaking around to an objective, and not getting caught by enemies by interacting with the environment.

Gameplay: 8/10

Overall score: 8/10

My answer to the questions earlier is: Yes. This game is absolutely spectacular, and I hope other superhero games can be as good as this one.
