The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Reviews Summary

Summary: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does not soar anywhere near as high as its titular hero. Critics are all saying its gameplay is lacking, tedious and just not worth the price of admission

What started out as the search for a killer very quickly becomes something so much more. In a unique story alongside the events of the second film, Spider-Man discovers he's not the only one tracking down Manhattan's criminals. The underworld has been turned upside down with a one man campaign of violence and murder that is has captured the city in an iron grip of fear. Villains from the film as well as fan-favorite, classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, freeroaming, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Man's reckoning.

Not necessarily a bad superhero game, just one we've seen countless times before. The web-swinging, goon-bashing, crime-fighting fundamentals simply aren't fun.

It's super-fun to swing around New York City in The Amazing Spider-Man 2! Everything else, on the other hand...

Maybe we've simply done everything there is to do with Spider-Man in a video game and all that's left is diminishing returns. And that kills me. It really does. Even in the worst of recent Spidey games there was always that fragment - that little sputtering flame of childlike excitement - that could kick in once you swan-dived off a skyscraper, clad in iconic red and blue. It's gone. Sullied by lacklustre gameplay and trampled by technical shoddiness, this time Spidey hasn't been done in by the Sinister Six, but reduced to a Terrible Two.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes in a next-gen wrapper, but feels like a last-gen experience. There's plenty of fun to be had thanks to some fun battles, an entertaining story, and scads of collectibles. Just be prepared for an experience that looks and feels extremely familiar.
