Top Critic Average
Summary: Insomniac's Spider-Man is not without its flaws, but most agree that it's the best Spider-Man video game ever made. Players will feel like Spider-Man while exploring the beautiful city and fighting its various enemies. PlayStation 4 owners will not want to miss it.
Developer: Insomniac Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genres: Action, Adventure
I wanted Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4 to make me feel like Spider-Man: To sail between the highrises of New York City, to nimbly web up hordes of enemies, and tussle with familiar, animal-themed villains. Insomniac Games' first foray into the world of Marvel handily delivers on all of that. But what I didn't expect from Spider-Man was to come away feeling just as fulfilled to have inhabited the life of Peter Parker. Aside from a few odd pacing issues, which momentarily took me out of the experience of being a superhero, and a world of optional missions that don't always quite live up to the heft of the main story, Insomniac has delivered a Spider-Man story that both surprised and delighted me, coupled with gameplay that made me feel like Spider-Man nearly every step of the way. The Wall Crawler's open world doesn't consistently deliver the thrilling moments of its main campaign, but the foundation laid here is undoubtedly a spectacular one.
