The open world is a hub for the main missions, and the "random" crimes have a limit and are not random. The story is OK but the combat is not as smooth as they were hoping for when making it. The swinging is by far the worst in any open world Spider-Man game and is just pathetic. The graphics look great, but if you have an AMD card it won't run even slightly. If you want a really good Spider-Man game, wait for this games sequel. Its out soon (if you are reading this a month after this is written on 8th April 2014, the sequel is already out, buy it).

6/10

The Amazing Spider-Man takes place directly after the movie. After the events of the movie, Alistair Smythe takes over the cross-species experiments when Curt Connors is taken to a mental hospital. Things eventually go wrong and cross-species creatures such as Vermin, Scorpion and Rhino break out of OsCorp and into the city. The cross-species contaminate the city and it becomes Spider-Man's mission to find a cure with the help of Connors.
The game does an amazing job of making the player really feel like Spider-Man. Swinging around Manhattan looks gorgeous, despite the fact that there is no Spider-Man 2 style web swinging, the web lines just sort of stick to nothing.
The combat in this game is very good. It is a more basic version of Batman Arkham series' combat system. There is a designated attack button, jump and web moves are available. Once your combo reaches a certain number and an enemy is in a dazed state, you can do a signature move which automatically KO's them and usually involves some acrobatics and webbing.
A problem is that it is quite repetitive at times. Quite a lot of the time, it is much easier to stealth take down any enemies than to get into an actual fight, and if you’re spotted, you can web rush around a little until the enemies lose sight of you and then try again.
The levels in the game are fun. However the game suffers from a lack of different environments. The main missions take place in a few areas that look a lot alike. All the major missions take place indoors. Almost all side missions take outdoors. Side missions include beating up muggers, challenges, car chases and photo missions. The boss battles are ok.
Overall, the graphics look good. Some of the character models look strange, but it is only noticeable if you are talking to them. Enemies look good. The city looks great especially in the night. Spidey's different costumes all look very nice.
The Amazing Spider-Man is a slightly above average attempt at taking a movie and making a game adaptation. The free roam, which should be a staple feature in a Spider-Man game is fun and can be quite addictive when getting down to collectibles and the camera angle used makes for some breathtaking web swinging moments.
The Amazing Spider-Man would be amazing if the game would be a little less repetitive and would have real web-swinging.

The primary problem is the port from console was not error free. Almost...unplayable. I could not build up continious play time, experiencing crashes no less than every every 15 min. Wait til it's cheaper to check if it works with your rig.

The game itself, plays well, cutscene heavy with button presses during and the rest of the time fighting bosses or in an open world. The world is a decent size, typical collectables but the series events were enjoyable, like some of the powers they give you to play. However, the world events seemed sparse, you have to wait for the next event to unlock.

Common battles are not too tough, but some boss battles take a sec to see the strategy. Then again of course, be ready for your button presses during the cutscenes. Reminds me of Batman playstyle, different world, powers, and events.

Decent game overall, just a little derivative, not that there is anything wrong with it. It is a good formula and it executes minus the almost unplayable errors for the PC/Steam version. Worse off, I check back a bit and no updates.

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

When you look at this game it seems to have potential but looks are decieving. Lets start off with the kick they did to pc gamers as a punishment to not buying the game on console, and waiting for pc. So instead of snapping 7 spider signals to get the suits you are made to collect 700 comics, and complete tasks. You get most of the new suits when beating the game. Its like why after that.

Technical issues. Aside from webbing through the city running up walls, and climbing them is a glitchfest, the webbing doesn't feel as fun as in past spiderman games. It also feels inorganic and articficial as you can just hold bottom R trigger to keep webbing. You'll be using the first r1 button because its more responsive and accurate. This also has its flaw as the indicator to where your travelling is only slightly more golden or yellowish.

The game constantly crashes on you. No bug fixes or patched have yet to be released. Making the game even more painful to play through its glitchness and instability. People with rigs like mine that are up to date, and high end memory, and gpu's
have had the similar painstaking feeling I have had. The lack of support for this game, and no more added content, plus all the problems make it a no buy. Untill they fix all thr problems and make it playing I do not recommend buying this game.
Its a shame Marvel let this bad pc port over like this without testing it fully, and fixing it up.

All of us Spiderman fans are waiting for all the other games to come to PC. Marvel you're losing money not investing, and properly investing in us.

Again it looks decent, but no because it doesn't function properly.

Just look at these Steam Forums

Thoughts after finishing the game. It still is a mess. The controls are bad, the story is lack luster,
and the boss battles are repetitive, and feel like a cluster of organized randomness. They did not port this at all well for pc, and never fixed any bogs, released patches. It could have been a great game, but all of these combined make it a fail of a choice. You won't regret buying this particular spiderman game trust me. The games combat system is super easy, and you will get to it too quickly. People who have no gaming skill will love this very easy game filled with glitches.
