Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales features a more interesting protagonist, a rich story, well-built characters and slight improvements in gameplay that make this adventure one of the best superhero games ever released. On the PC, the graphics are impressive and the performance doesn't leave anything to be desired.

Much like Spider-Man (2018)’s excellent launch on PC back in August, Miles Morales is another fantastic PC version of a previous PlayStation exclusive. Next year we’re anticipating The Last of Us Part 1 (the remake version) will make its way to PC and likely God of War Ragnarök at some point, but I also hope we see some older PlayStation titles such as the earlier Uncharted games. I just hope the gap of time between the release of Spider-Man 2 planned on console and its PC version is not as long as the four years between the original game and its PC release.

In the end, Insomniac did well to capitalize on the success of Miles Morales in the movies. We are dealing here with a more concise and engaging adventure than the one featuring Peter Parker. It may be that the same activities are repeated mission after mission, but the sense of freedom that comes from swinging between skyscrapers alone is worth it. We also appreciate the developers' restraint in the side quests and tasks by avoiding trivia. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is, in other words, excellent entertainment that deserves to be played for the first or second time.

An excellent evolution of its predecessor that, while carrying over some of its weaknesses, has further strengthened its high points.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a fantastic follow-up, telling a wonderful story while improving upon the fundamentals of the first game.

A standalone expansion for 2018's excellent original, with enhanced action and an irresistible new lead.

A brilliant but all too brief sample of Miles Morales' superhero life.

A far better advert for the PS5 than its short length and last gen assets might have suggested, with superior storytelling and more compelling characters than the original.

Not as long as the previous entry, but better streamlined. The Spider-Man action is superb, but the threat Miles faces isn't as interesting or potent

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales sticks a bit too close to its predecessor in terms of mechanics, but manages to stand on its own through its story and characters.

What makes Miles an important hero for the world of 2020 is not his successes, his abilities, his fighting moves, or even his moral compass to do good: It’s his belief in himself and others that we can rise above this. That’s also his mother’s central focus for her political campaign. Miles has a relentless, if sometimes naïve, belief in others’ goodness. He wants to help the city and neighborhood he loves. And watching him try, watching his small victories, and playing through it with such beautiful animations — with nods to Into the Spider-Verse — became one of my few joys in this dark-as-shit year.

Miles Morales excels in its smallest moments, and I wish it had the confidence to stand by them to the end.

The early heroic career of Miles Morales gets some shine in this standalone soft sequel to Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4. Web swinging is still fantastic and the combat system expands with Miles' more varied powerset. And while you might have played most of this game before, Insomniac does an amazing job telling the story of its version of Miles. Rooted in his new home of Spanish Harlem, he's probably the most "friendly neighborhood" of any version of Spider-Man.

Just like Into the Spider-Verse, I was pleasantly surprised by Miles Morales. I came in fully expecting it to be a side story, but it was much more than that. If this is setting us up for Spider-Man 2 where both Miles and Peter are playable: I'm in.

For $50, players are getting 7-9 hours of story missions, combined with the optional 10+ hours of side content, much of which is collectible hunting. That doesn’t strike me as a great deal at launch, but the free upgrade from PS4 to PS5 does help soften the blow. When the price is right for you, this PlayStation exclusive comes with my recommendation, as it further bolsters Sony’s arsenal as we enter the next generation and beyond.

PlayStation continues to add good ports to PC, with a title that takes advantage of the most powerful graphics on the market to offer a spectacle superior to the console. Of course, Miles Morales is quite continuous in ideas and mechanics, so if you expect great innovations, it may not be the adventure you dreamed of.

Miles Morales works great as a launch title for PS5, it keeps most virtues from the previous game, and adds "next gen" effects, but it´s not as big and ambitious as the original.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales feels like more of a sequel than it is a stopgap, entangling players within its web of cleverly refined mechanics while delivering some familiar web-slinging thrills. A heroic technical showcase for PS5 owners picking up their consoles on day one, this meaty side story in the Spider-Man saga has us even more excited than before to see what Insomniac Games have planned next.
