Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Top Critic Average
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a tighter, more concentrated Spider-Man video game experience that focuses so heavily on what makes the character great - regardless of who's in the suit.
If Spider-Man was Insomniac's rebuttal to this titular hero's decaying status within games, Miles Morales is its claim that story opportunities beyond Peter Parker are also worthwhile.
I’m happy to say that Insomniac has impressed me in their ability to pull off such an entertaining title to kick off the next generation of gaming. Even if it isn’t that long, the fantastic gameplay and stunning visuals make this title shine. Maybe it’s just my love for Spider-Man, but Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has pushed the standard even higher. I can’t wait to see what’s next for this Miles and this Spider-Man universe.
Not only that but it does a wonderful job of showing off the power of the PS5. The game looks incredible, plays well and builds upon the 2018 original superbly. It is kind of just “more of the same” but when “the same” is of the quality of Marvel’s Spider-Man that isn’t really a bad thing is it?
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
