Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Top Critic Average
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a fun and well made spin-off that does not stray too far from the original PS4 game, and I can't wait for what Insomniac Games is able to do in their next game.

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