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.

A fun game for every spidey loving gamers out there. This game will get you flying through the streets of Manhattan with cool acrobatics which Spider-Man is mostly about for me. You can unlock different costumes after a while, but after completing the game I had only unlocked about 3 out of 6 or so.

It also has a good story but reveals something that most likely will come in the new movie.

After the story is completed you can still swing around in the city and save citizens from small crime, or just swing around for fun and listen to the epic Spider-Man music.

However there are some things that I did not like about this game.
When you swing around in the city, it doesn't seem like the web is hitting any of the buildings, it goes straight up into the air. Which I think is really sad and lazy beacause I remember a Spider-Man game back in the day on PS2 where the web actually hit the buildings and you had to swing in a different way because of the way the web hit the building. This game kind of goes back to PS1 where the web just goes straight up, but you still gotta swing where there are buildings close to you of course.

Most of the combat and missions happen inside sewers and buildings, which doesn't give you such a great feeling of being Spider-Man, very few missions are outside. Most of the game is spent inside something.

But even though I got some negative things to say about this game, I would still recommend it (although it's pretty easy).
It gives you the feeling of being The Amazing Spider-Man. I had fun completing this game, and I would play it again if I had forgotten the whole story.

I had fun but it's not worth the regular price. PROS- Looks cool, nice unlockables, and an okay story. CONS- Repetitive gameplay, awkward camera (stealth), crashing, and lag for ATI/AMD users (I'm not the only one).

THE REPETITIVE PARTS:
The missions have the same formula: beating up generic thugs/guards, going through vents, and using stealth. All bosses (except the Rhino) can be just defeated by spamming the combat button and dodging. New York does not have many things to do except chasing the same cars and fighting the same crime scenarios. All thugs dissappear after you defeat them all.

Only get it on sale, if you really want it.

This game... wow. I wasn't sure when I picked it up at first, as Spiderman seems to have an inconsistent track record when it comes to games, but this game really hooked me. It tends to have a technical issue now and again that may have booted me from the game a couple times, but I always went back for more. Not only are the combat and swing mechanics fun and easy to pick up, but the story gets f-ing crazy as well, taking Spiderman to what felt like an apocalypse scenario by the end of it. I can definitely recommend this one as a pick-up if you're jonesing for a Spidey fix. (Also, turn up those speakers. The robotic worm fight worked my bass quite a bit. :))

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.
