NOTE:: I'd give this game a "neutral" review, if i could, but unfortunately, i can't.
It has some annoying issues (some glitches/bugs which forced me to restart the game and it constantly crashes after an hour or so) but apart from that, i had quite some fun with it.

But first things first:
You're playing Spider-Man, shortly after the events of the movie "The Amazing Spider-Man".
There is a new infectious threat, turning people into mindless monsters and an Oscorp Employee who thinks he can save the city with it's robots.
All in all a good enough story to to keep you going and it's presentation is quite well done.

The graphics aren't anything you will be excited about, but they're okay. The city lacks in detail, level textures aren't always that good but the characters were quite well made and the animations and moves of Spider-Man were pretty good.

Controls felt good and the swinging and fighting was fluent, although the camera angle had it's issues sometimes.
You can compare the combat to the Batman Arkham games. It's a combo-system with a lot of different moves, finishers, stealth-takeouts etc.

The game is split into story-missions / side-missions and free-roaming in the city.
The main missions are very linear, with some secrets you can find and collect. While in the free-roaming mode, you can swing around the city and start side-missions, rescuing citizens and look for collectibles. There is not much else to do in the city, you basically just swing from side-mission to side-mission and (if you're into that) get all the collectibles if you can.
But swinging around as Spider-Man is pretty fun :)

Unfortunately, i had constant crashes every hour or so. I couldn't find out why it happend nor fix them, so that was pretty annoying but the good thing was, save-points are pretty fair, so i didn't needed to play a lot again.
I had also a few glitches/bugs, especially later on in the game, which forced me to restart as i was stuck.

Apart from the crashes and glitches, i still had a lot of fun with it, but due to these, i can't really recommend it 100%.

The whole time I was playing this I was convinced I would feel like writing about it afterwords. I did write some things in my head. Now that I am here I kind of don't have anything to say. Let me just list some things see if it sparks something.

First things first. I really like Spiderman. So now you know I'm biased but lets get into it.

What I didn't like
- Manhattan is boring. At least in this game it is. It looks boring and it feels boring.
- Everything looks feels old. The UI looks dated, the city even with the game running at maximum 1080p usually 60fps (the game seems to bog down for seemingly no reason a lot) the city looks dated and the draw distance seems to favor fogginess. Also the button prompts are ridiculous.
- It launches twice sometimes and crashes because of that (happened like 7 times)
-There is very little variety in the side missions
- There are too many collectibles

What I did like
-You get to be Spiderman


Okay, I'll say more.
Traversing around feels great. Now given that Spidy swings on his web that attaches to things thats not always the case here. HOWEVER, in reality the mechanics of that and having to react to that in addition to fighting would be overbearing. The swinging feels great. You are Spiderman. Not, figure out the best trajectory while fighting a giant robot.. man. The fighting feels pretty decent. Its a little over animated but again, you're Spiderman you still need to fight accordingly. Its very responsive and in no way out of your control.

Stealth is very fun, you can look through your mask while time is slowed and choose a location to zipline to and prey on your foes very tactical like. You know he can stick to walls and ceilings right? Think about it.

Even though there is not much in the way of side mission variety the things here are fun. Races, petty crimes, helping the police by going behind enemy lines or ending a car chase. Of course there is also taking pictures of crap. I mean, its not like he works at the Daily Bugle or anything. And all of these activities repeat with some variation between the main missions. There is also picking people up (escaped mental patients and infected people) and taking them to the appropriate place. Which is fun because swinging around is friggin awesome.

There are comic books EVERYWHERE and grabbing them out of the sky is super fun because again getting around very liberating and fluid. Its an absolute joy to snag a collectible and proceed to fall and then swing in between two cars at ground level.

The voice acting is actually very good which surprised me, then I recognized and looked up to confirm that Nolan North (Nathan Drake and every other male character not voiced by Troy Baker) and Ali Hillis (Liara T'Soni and Lightning from FFXIII) are in the game.

If you like Spiderman you'll like this game, if you don't, this game won't change your mind. I guess I had more to say than I thought.

At first look, this game looks like a cheap cash grab into the currently shining Super-Hero games industry, and that's because it is.

Personal Rating: 3 of 10

NOTE: The low rating given was due to bugs which causes the game to be unplayable.

This game is awesome, when it works flawlessly. It is everything you expect it should be being Spider-Man and being such a hard-hitting, action and open world game, it really manages to differs from all of it peers at a level on its own.

The game starts slow and I did thought is that all the game has to offer at first; mindless mouse mashing. Several chapters into the game, it actually expand the content and also combat capabilities. Levels are replayable so you can take your time to explore and complete the collectibles. No pressure there.

You may need to get used to the camera and mouse and keyboard input capture at first but as you proceed with the game, you will slowly take your mind off them. All in all, this game is really awesome and not just some money-grab to follow the Spider-Man trend.

However, all these only applies without the bad hardware support and constant crashes. The game jerks horribly specially in the open world. This is not due to hardware performances. If you just do some research, you will know this game is not compatible with RADEON cards. I tried to resolve the problem without avail since none of the solution does not promise a 100% success rate. The game also constantly crash at random times. Fans has been discussing this issue that seems to occurs to RADEON and NVIDIA users. Most of the solutions provided are again not confirmed as I have tried them all.

If you really enjoy such open world games, I do highly recommend this title. You will definitely not be disappointed. But it comes with a huge gamble if the game actually worked or not.
