Terrible game. It tries to be too much like the Batman Arkham games and fails on most accounts. Spiderman 2 was a much better game than this.

The Amazing Spider-Man is alright, it's nothing close to whats considered a 'good' game but if you're just looking for something to play for the enjoyment of swinging around places then it serves that purpose pretty well.
The story is dull and lifeless and the combat mechanics are left and right click to win.
It's got some nice re-playability value though.
Overall 4/10

I think this is one of the most repetitive games I've ever played, still, as Spiderman fan I enjoyed it.
It's really bugged, it's almost unplayable if you have Antialising and some "high" settings enabled :/ And after messing with the config still crashes often. I think the only time I quit the game because I wanted to was when I finished it.

I only recommend this if you like Spiderman and you get it really cheap, otherwise just skip it.

IMO the best Web-Slinging Simulator available on Steam at the moment...
NUFF' SAID !
As much as this game tries to be a mix of the good old Spider-Man2 and Batman Arkhams without ever reaching the level of any, it's still a pretty fun Spidey game.
Yes it's kinda buggy (no pun...), yes your web will always stick to something about 20 meters above the highest point available (but quite frankly I do'nt really need realism in a COMICS game, and furthermore this stuff happens all the time in the comics), and yes the levels are linear with a combat/stealth system being an inferior copy of Batman Arkhams.
But once you get out in the Big Apple and start fighting crime, collecting comics and stuff, or just websling around it's pretty damn fun.

I once also read reviews about this game, and what I found was mostly negative.
But I still decided to get the game and I didn't regret it. Sure it has some flaws and it crashes quite often, but despite that I had a lot of fun. The story sets after the first Amazing Spiderman Movie, but it doesn't really matter if you didn't watch it. You start of by doing your first mission and after that you can choose between swinging around in the city or continuing the storyline. The sidequest makes you earn special features like concept arts etc. Although they are repetitive, it's fun just to swing around the city and finishing them. I played this with a 360 controller and the controls are something you need to get used to.

The story itself isn't mountain moving, but it isn't completely bad either. There aren't a lot of reasons to replay it after one playthrough, expect going for achievements (beating the game on different difficulties). The graphics could have been better, too. 5/10

there is fix that worked in the past but now it no longer does for me and some others link below. I have an HD7970ghz 3GB amd fx-8350, and 16gb of ram. And now the "The Amazing Spiderman 2" is out but there still has been no patch to fix this..... considering that I'm not the only one that this game doesn't work for and it would seem to be centered around ATI GPU. There really should be a warning on the games page at the least that this game is not supported on ATI cards not a "Hey it works on those cards" ie "Recommended: Graphics: NVidia 8800GT / AMD ATI Radeon HD4830" . yeah you will lose some money I get that but this is false advertisement the game doesn't work. I have half a mind to submit a class action lawsuit for this issue it's pure negligence. even if it's to show game developers that you can't just release a game that doesn't function I mean even games in alpha and beta on steam warn you and are like "hey were not promising anything". I shouldn't have to use a third party work around to just get the game running. (that now doesn't even work for my card and others I see.) considering now the game simply crashes the instant I click to start the game. I mean seriously that game has been out since 6/26/2012 and it's now 5/7/2014 that almost two years that it's been broken even going to activision for support gets you nothing. they just tell me to do things I though and did a dozen times before ever contacting them about this in attempt to fix it to no avail.

This game is the best of the spidy games ever. I compare to the previous franchise of this game. I really love swinging the webs through the city. The combats are very amazing and you can use many combos like the spidy in the movies. The graphics are very nice but there are some frame rate problem. However, it's good for the fans of the spidy and I'd recommend this game to those people. I love this game and this franchise.

Beenox has perfected their formula with this game and delivered something "Amazing." With story writing that is rarely seen in fast action games and performances that are extremely well captured, this game stands apart from other movie inspired games. Designed to be a mixture of the "Arkham" and "Web of Shadows" gameplay, you need to get this game if you like things comic book inspired.

Twice I've tried to play this game and twice I've had no choice but to stop playing. Aside from the occasional in-game crashes, on both occasions, I got to a point when the stand-alone game launcher just wouldn't launch. The first time I unisntaled and reinstalled. The second time, I'm done and moving on. Is there a fix out there somewhere on the interwebs? Probably. But I don't have the time or the patience to go look for it right now. Maybe after I play some considerably better designed games, I'll come back to this one some day. If your thinking hardware, no, I don't think so. I'm sporting a less than year old ALienware 14. When it worked, it wasn't all bad. Controls were a little clunky, trying web swing around town. But generally a fun game...when it worked.

I have played pretty much every Spiderman game from the SNES to Spiderman 3 on the PS3. I enjoyed them all and assumed I would enjoy this one. That was not the case. One of the few enjoyable features of this game is the web swinging through quite an aesthetically pleasing city. To me it seems like this game was rushed as Hollywood blockbuster films turned games tend to be. There is so much repetition and lazy scenery that the game lacks the freedom and creativity that the previous Spiderman games provided. From it being the same ducts you climb through, to the same fans you must web to get through and the same boring enemies you must fight. I also had a huge problem as every chapter or so the game would crash and I would on occasion need to re-do some of what I had just done. I know this was not my hardware as I can play MUCH more demanding games with no problems whatsoever. In conclusion this is one of the worst Spiderman games I have played and would not recommend it to anyone. Even if a fan of the previous games.

Reminds me of tomb raider but definitely not as good as tomb raider...but nevertheless it is a neat little action adventure game.....Only part i don't like is the saving of infected people and crazy people...the web slinging action gets kind of overly redundant and boring after some time....Nevertheless people should definitely give this game a try...:)
