Spider-Man: Silver Lining
Top Critic Average
It felt shorter than the past episodes, but also satisfying to see this story arc come to an end. The surprise cameo was much appreciated, but I think we all knew that character wasn't really dead.
Clearly, the future for Spider-Man videogames has never been brighter.
The final DLC campaign for Marvel's Spider-Man The City that Never Sleeps accomplishes much more than finish off this extensive story. It adds new narrative elements that provide insight into what players can expect into the upcoming sequel. It does add a lot more tedious busy work and one character's ending is unfulfilling but Silver Linings is more than an end to Marvel's Spider-Man, it's a bridge to the next game.
A satisfying end to a three-part story that had a couple swings and misses.
Silver Lining ends The City That Never Sleeps with grace but its grander ambitions make it more than yet another Spider-Man chapter.
I’d say that it’s worth picking up to conclude Spider-Man’s DLC story arc. Just don’t expect anything mind-blowing.
Silver Lining is a great conclusion for this series of DLCs that have been somewhat disappointing. It is a more diverse DLC, presenting interesting situations that make you want to play it. The downsides are the ending, as it seems it had its development rushed, and again its length.

The final chapter in The City that Never Sleeps DLC story for Spider-Man is a knockout.
While Silver Lining is certainly a concluding arc to this chapter of game development, it never feels like an ending. The over-familiarity will wane on you, but it’s clear there’s much more to come from this franchise. Even though Silver Lining has plenty of optional extras to mop up once the final credits roll, it’s hard not to be more excited about the future. In that, the DLC has served its purpose perfectly.
Silver Lining manages to recover the rhythm after the Territory Wars fall and puts the quality bar back at the level of the main adventure, becoming the best of the three DLC for Marvel's Spider-Man and a very satisfactory ending for The City that Never sleeps.
