The game has two problems. The swinging is way to slow and hyperboring, you end up using rush all the time, the second problem is that the history is an absolute mess, please, you need to hire some scriptwritter with an extensive knowledge of the comics not this mixed non-sense.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
is the follow-up to the first game and somehow ties into 2014’s movie of the same name. The extremely short length might be the only saving grace for this game, as it is considered a mercy. I had already heard about the negativity surrounding the game, but I guess that I had to experience the game myself to make sure. I think this is the first time I post a review with a big red dislike button hovering over it, but I felt that I had to.
TL;DR version at the bottom of the review.

STORY: Well, there isn’t much of a story as the game just jumps around villains and story arcs that are never finished, leaving the player asking “what the hell just happened?” many, many times. The story picks up after the events of the first game and at the start of TASM2 movie with Peter struggling to juggle his life as Spider-Man and Peter. This premise is nothing new, but when done well, can create truly great Spider-Man stories. Gwen is almost never mentioned! She could have had a major role in the story of Peter’s struggles, but sadly, the game sets up this premise without really exploring it. All I saw was untapped potential at a decent story.

On the Spidey side of things, our favorite web-slinger fights a multitude of villains including Kraven the Hunter, Kingpin, Black Cat, Electro, and a shoehorned Carnage. All villains feel like filler and underdeveloped except for Kraven. The story jumps around fighting these villains (usually once) without any context. One of my major gripes with the story is the inclusion of Carnage who was shoehorned for fan service, but as a huge fan, it actually angered me to a certain level. Also, how could Carnage exist without Venom?!

GAMEPLAY: Spidey’s webs now attach to buildings instead of just shooting up in the sky which forces the players to stick close to the ground as the buildings are really short. In a Spider-Man game first, web slinging is now mapped to Spidey’s left and right hands, meaning that each hand is mapped to a button (LT/L2 and RT/R2 on controllers) and this system creates a sense of speed and momentum when it works, but it was mostly broken in my experience.

Most of the 12 story missions shared the same structure, go to place X (usually Oscorp), beat up the goons, save the civilian and finally, fight the boss. The boss battles felt like reskins as all of them shared the same strategy and level design which is to keep mashing the attack button until the health meter goes down; zero variety and minimal strategy or thinking.

As for combat, combat is akin to Arkham games but is extremely limited with little to no variety. Spidey kicks and punches with one button and counters with another. Enemies are basically punching bags that sometimes just won’t go down. Combat was mostly a bore and I avoided it whenever possible. There were also several stealth sections that break up the action. These sections were similar to the noir levels in Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions but are extremely dumbed down with only 2-3 animations on repeat.

Aside from the main story missions, there are several side missions to increase Spidey’s heroism stat and a bunch of collectibles. These side missions consist of taking pictures for the Daily Bugle, beating up thugs, and saving civilians from fires. I avoided the gang missions because how boring combat was in the first place.

It is important to note that the game is extremely short, having finished the game in one sitting at around 4 hours of gameplay time (including cutscenes).

GRAPHICS: With a lifeless city, muddy textures, limited enemy design variations, horrible drawing distance, and dated character models, the game is without a doubt, ugly. Both TASM1 (2012) and Shattered Dimensions (2010) look better than this game and I have no idea how. The game is also marred by performance issues as I had frame dips to as low as 25FPS on a rig that can run graphically demanding games such as The Witcher 3 at max settings at around 120FPS. On the bright side, Spidey’s model, costumes, and animations look fantastic and fun to look at.

AUDIO: The laughable script is only worsened by the lifeless voice acting. Music is nothing memorable as I honestly cannot remember any single musical piece, and I played the entire game in a single sitting.

TL;DR:
Pros:
  • Fun swinging mechanics (when they work)
  • Cool Spider-Man animations and suits
  • Mercifully short
Cons:
  • Carnage
  • Bad story
  • Boring combat
  • Lifeless city
  • Performance issues no matter how powerful your rig is
  • Extremely basic level design with little to no variety
  • Short
Overall, I really tried to like TASM2 as I thoroughly enjoyed its predecessor, but I just couldn’t look past its ugly visuals, boring combat, and repetitive gameplay. If you want a good Spider-Man experience on Steam, I suggest getting either Shattered Dimensions or TASM1. If you want an amazing Spider-Man experience, then try to get a copy of Spider-Man 2 on the PlayStation 2, or my personal favorite, Ultimate Spider-Man. In the end, I feel that TASM2 is a very poor man’s Batman Arkham Origins (yes, Origins).
*on a side note, I had to resist the urge to include the many, many puns I had.

Remember that time in the comics that Spider-man got stuck on a drain pipe and shot to death cause he couldn't simply hop down? Me neither, but it happened more than once on various objects in this thanks to terrible game design. That kind of fun, and more, awaits you if you decide to waste money on this game.

Major issues I had with the game:
-Save corruption if you don't have steam cloud saving enabled.
-garbage framerate on anything but medium draw distance (not that it matters, the game world looks like cardboard)
-uninteresting story
-uninteresting combat
-glitchy, janky movement etc
-web swinging, while better than the first game, is still not good. In fact its worse in the sense that its now unpredictable, and hard to move around the enviroment.
-god awful camera

Played most of the game and its not worth it, trust me. Quit on the last level out of spite. Low effort dev work, don't torture yourself.

As a huge Spider-Man fan (and a comic book fan in general) it's hard to give this games a thumbs down, yet it's hard from a gamer's perspective to give it a thumbs up. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 can be enjoyable for Spider-Man fans, but the average gamer will definately find a ton of frustrations in an otherwise enjoyable game.

THE PROS:
· The story is pretty good, with some interresting villains like the King Pin and Kraven the Hunter.
· Refferences to both the movies and the general Spider-Man lore.
· Completing Hide-Outs will grant you with a new Spidey suit.
· Collectibles offer a lot for Spider-Man fans. You can view your collectibles in Stan Lee's comic book store!
· Spider-Man's web will (most of the time) realistically stick to buildings.
· Spidey has some sweet lookin' moves in both his swinging and comat.

THE CONS:
· Even though the camera has been greatly improved over the original Amazing Spider-Man game, the combat feels a bit unresponsive and too stiff. It's safe to say they're trying to copy the Batman Arkham-series' combat, but it often feels like you're punching thin air because the henchmen you're beating up react unrealistically to Spider-Man's punches and kicks.
· A terrible presentation. The menus looks dull and boring, like they were back on the days of the Playstation One.
· I wouldn't call these Side Missions actual side missions, because you're sort of forced to do them. If you don't do them, they people will start to see Spider-Man as a mennace in stead of a hero. This wouldn't be a huge deal if the side missions were fun, buy they're largely boring and downright repetetive. You don't get a good enough chance to explore the city when uninterresting side missions pop up randomly across the map for a limited time.
· Visiting Aunt May's house to change costumes requires you to hop on a train that's only on some points of the map. Sure it makes sense, but changing costumes on the fly would be a lot easier. You can easily lose a couple of minutes to find the train, web onto it, get your costume off and get in your Peter Parker clothes, go upstairs, pick a suit, go back outside just to find out it's not really the costume you really want to wear. Cosumes grant a slight bonus (which is very welcome) but in order to avoid going through this time consuming and boring process of switching suits will probably just leave you playing with one specific costume.

THE VISUALS:
· The overal detail in the world is very good... if it was 2007. Textures on Spidey's suit look bad and blocky, faces look like they're made out of wet clay, the camera will sometimes clip through an object like a wall in the middle of a cutscene. It's basically a pretty bugged game with very few pretty skyline sights, but they mostly look like a downgrade from the original.

FINAL VERDICT:
· If you're a big Spider-Man fan, probably pick this up on sale to scratch that itch for a decent Spider-Man game. It feels like a rushed product that is a general downgrade from the original with only very few improvements that quickly fade away in the game's frustrating issues. 6/10

As much as I wanted to, I can't give this game a positive review. Web swinging was fun for a bit but its lack of control meant ending up always using the webzip system and just watching Spidy do the swinging for you. Coupled with a punishing crime system that closed the world instead of opening it as you played, it just can't compete with the good old Spiderman 2 for Gamecube....

I can't recommend this game at full price. That being said it's not a terrible game, it's not particularly good either, but it's not terrible. If you played the first Amazing Spider-man game you will notice that this game is basically a carbon copy of that with a new story.

Some changes however that make it ultimately worse than the first Amazing Spiderman:

1. The new swinging mechanic, which they implemented cause people complained about Spidey swinging from nothing, adds in that you have to attach webs to buildings to swing. Sounds like a positive point right? It would be except they did it in the laziest way possible. They kept the swinging mechanic exactly the same and just editted it to say you can't swing unless a building is near. This combined with the map being the exact same means you spend 90% of your time web zipping and 10% actually swinging. If you try to seing more than that you get to hear this "blip" sound over and over ... or have spidey say "this just in, webs need something to stick to" for the 400th time.

2. Related to #1, they left the swinging mechanic within mission exactly the same as the first game ... which just tosses in utter confusion for players after they get used to the new mechanic. Was anyone really bugged that badly by Spidey swinging from thin air that we needed to break the game this badly?

3. The side missions are technically optional, but in reality they are mandatory. If you don't do them regularly you become labelled a "menace" and have to fight off cops around the city. Sounds like no big deal, and maybe a bit of extra fun. It would be except that early in the game they introduce "the task force" which will attack you so mercilessly that simply swinging around the city with a menance level of 3/3 will make you dead in about .... well can't finish that sentence cause you're dead already.

Other than that the game is the same as the first ... which means the same issues: All missions indoors in isolated maps negating the whole idea of "open world," a stealth mechanic that is encouraged but terribly broken (though in this game if you wear the Spider-man Noir suit you can fix the mechanic and make it usable :P), boring one button combat, an upgrade system that is useless cause you can (and I did) play the entire game without purchasing any upgrades.

So ya ... not the best game, but if you like Spidey you'll get some enjoyment out of this game there is no doubt about that, but wait for like a 75% off sale or something. Bottom line don't pay more than $20.

This game gave me the strong impression that the developers intended to make the money piggy backing off of the film release and not make a polished game. I was disappointed because Beenox has made very good Spider-Man titles previous to this one.

There are many issues, only magnified by the fact that I found Amazing Spider-Man 1 to be such a good game. There are no improvements to the combat system (I found it to be buggier and less satisfying than the original game). Web-swinging took some getting used to, which only made the fact that the game required you to travel long distances in a short amount of time more obvious and frustrating. The mechanic of requiring random events took all of the fun out of saving citizens, and the lack of any impact other than making your life harder made it unsatisfying. Some of the events were similar to older games, and the fact that it made me irritated rather than nostalgic showed me that there was little thought to making completing them fun.

The story of Amazing Spider-Man 1 game was not during the film and allowed for the introduction of some iconic villains while building on the plot, while making some epic boss battles with huge and difficult adversaries. Amazing Spider-Man 2 lazily makes the game's plot during the movie, forcing lackluster introductions and battles with very good villains, creating large holes in the movie plot, and making generic enemies not on par with the varied and satisfying plot and enemies of Amazing Spider-Man 1.

A positive aspect of the game was that it does have a lot of nods to fans, the unlockable suits were satisfying, but they made the most desirable premium DLC, which removes the positive in my opinion. I liked being rewarded by being able to read comics by finding the collectables scattered throughout the world, and there was some insinuation of what was to come. Ultimately, this game made me question pre-ordering a Spider-Man game again.

After enjoying and playing a lot of the first Amazing Spiderman video game, I assumed I would love this one and preordered for the extra suits.
I was wrong.

Lets start with the good bits.
You can swing from buildings.

Now, the bad.

If you have seen the film this game simply confuses you. You basically get given an entire different story to the film that seems like it was written with less thought and less time than this review. That was the main reason for my 29 hours on the first game that the game took place after the events of the film so it wouldn't have to try and follow a storyline that was already given so amazingly (heh, get it?) within the film.

I enjoyed the combat system from the first game as the developers actually tried to make different animations for the attacks and counter attacks, this time around it just seemed sloppy and lazily thought out.
The upgrade system is easily the worst i've encountered in the last 10 years, even the worst of games wasn't as terrible with their upgrades. You got given abilities and then had to spend "Tech Points" (A nice comeback from the first game) on the 4 upgrades for them. You got given about 6 or 7 abilites with 4 upgrades for each one and they're not even that great an upgrade, it's quite easy to go through the game ignoring the combat upgrades as the only useful ones were the travelling slingshot upgrade that took about 5 seconds to execute and within that 5 seconds you could of travelled further anyway. it was more of a gimick than an actual upgrade, something to impress the fans - Didn't work!

The web swinging was always the most fun of any spiderman game, Spiderman 2 onwards seemed to nail the webswinging, I even enjoyed the webswinging of the previous game despite not clinging to buildings. This game seemed to reduce my enjoyment. That slingshot was the only enjoyable thing about it and even that got boring after using it twice. your web reach was tiny so you were reduced to being never more than 3 meters away from the walls limiting your freedom. Spiderman also gave out a snide comment when he had nowhere to swing despite a building being right next to him, this just made me angry as it just seemed like another uncompleted feature of the game.

Continuing on from trying to impress the fans is the inclusion of a few great comic book villains, such as; Shocker, Kraven the Hunter, Black Cat, Kingpin, and the most impressive, Carnage.
Every boss fight was basically the same. punch kick punch punch, webpull, spidersense, webrush, punch some more. Every boss had some sort of difference, but they all seemed so last minute. Your first boss is the shocker from there you obtain his "seismic blasters" which only seemed useful to fight the kingpin 3 hours later. It took 4 seconds to charge up just to knock them down, when the enemies are down you have to wait for them to get up to attack. It was like being a superhero suffering from ADD and he just seemed to forget that he could of webbed a guy to the floor. This upgrade is not needed and was just another way to make fan boys ♥♥♥♥ in their little spiderman pants.

Carnage. As great as it was to see cletus kasady, he seemed tame. He seemed less crazy than the 1995 spiderman cartoon casady and that was a cartoon! this is a video game rated 16! The carnage symbiote is meant to amplify everything about a person hence making kasady even more dangerous. There was no difference in his behaviour. Just his voice. It was as if someone just hit a distortion switch but there was no tonal difference. just a clear talking person saying he will kill spiderman.

As great as seeing some of my favourite spiderman villains in game, fighting them was more boring than watching slugs race. This game spits in the face of a spiderman fan and twists and distorts spiderman enemies into simple weakling incapable of landing one punch on the webhead.

I don't recommend this game and makes me think twice about preordering the next one from now on.
