The game is nothing short of fantastic! The graphics are detailed, crisp-clear and makes the open-world landscape truly remarkable. I always enjoy open-world structures, but this game makes use of it in an entirely different way. You have full freedom in New York City, you can web-sling to any of the skyscrapers, dive and flip and look like a complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥ in the air if you'd like. It's freedom, and it's gorgeous. Jumping and web-slinging skyscraper to skyscraper may not necessarily sound like much fun to everyone, but combine that with the perfect and jaw-dropping graphics the game has, it really is fun! In fact, open-world landscapes have never been this great before!
You can mostly select missions yourself (although you do follow the general storyline at the same time), and this is a unique feature I adore. Instead of being forced to play 100 missions you hate and then 1 mission you like, you have much more control over your own gaming and what missions you want to do than what other games permit. Some of the missions are quite difficult, even on easy mode, but practice makes perfect! The game is long in length, which means that if you love it, it takes time to finish it. That's awesome, because if you're like me, you love the game and want mission after mission after mission.
My primary concern for this game: the enemies. Particularly the robots. Some of them are very overpowered and several times I got stuck in the game not being able to pass missions where taking them out was required. That causes a lot of frustration, but in the end, all missions should be fairly doable even for beginners.
This is undoubtedly one of the best games I have bought on Steam. I recommend it to everyone who's a fan of Spider-Man and open-world landscapes. In fact, even if you hate Spider-Man, the landscapes might still make you love it, haha.
Sequel! Sequel! Sequel!
