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

After being a fan of the first "The Amazing Spider-Man" game that I finished a few weeks ago, I was really looking forward to getting straight into another Marvel adventure with my favorite web slinging super-hero.

There are a lot of complaints about the graphics on this game being not up to scratch are complete bogus. Max this bad boy out and you get a beautiful spider-man-esk comic graphic style. The lens flare may be a little much at times but that can be forgotten for how well the overall city landscape has been done.

Length wise, the game is lacking a bit. I had finished the main story and the majority of the "side quests" and I have only clocked in six hours. There is the opportunity to carry on playing after you finish the main story to collect the rest of achievements and collectibles, and some people may be into that sort of thing but not me.

The original game kind of had a button mashing feel to it, this however is different in that you have to use all sorts of maneuvers to overcome the enemies. The camera work is certainly an improvement over the last too.

I used the Xbox controller, and it worked brilliantly for the most part, takes a little while in the beginning to get used to the controls but it's worth it.

Action/Adventure and Spider-Man fans should certainly play this!

Any Spider-Man fan with a decent knowledge of Peter's background and villians possess a 50/50 chance of enjoying this game, depending on the type of experience being sought. Players seeking for an enticing tale probably wouldn't favor this game, as the story delivers most villians rushed introductions and quick defeats. Players seeking for a game filled with gratifying nods towards Spidey lore, great combat; and opportunities to create imaginative stories may enjoy this game. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not based on the movie it was named after; rather a game in it's own universe with (coincidentally) black Max Dillon.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 carries a decent balance between Peter Parker and Spidey throughout story missions, though most levels are repetitive and often feel "the same." Boss battles and investigation missions often carry similar situations, though with different environments created to (hopefully) distract the player from this lack of diversity.

This game was enjoyable for me, however; mostly because I spent most of my time looking for 1994 Spider-Man connections.

If you're a fan of Spider-Man, you might enjoy it. But, if you're a video gamer, you probably won't.

P.S. Carnage. 'Nuff said!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is an action packed adventure which will keep your heart pumping. It provides crimes around the city for you to the do to take a break from the main missions. One of the new features in this game is the Notoriety level. Whenever you do not do crimes and instead just skip over them, your Notoriety level increases and once it reaches a certain level, the "police" will be shooting you whenever they see you. As it increases more and more, they will be more aggressive. This can get dangerous as you are trying to roam the city. Doing Story Missions will not lower your Notoriety. The only way to lower it is to do crimes constantly or your Notoriety level will increase. This is an annoying feature introduced by this game and has caused me to give it a lower score. It will make you unable to roam the city for more than 10 minutes without doing a crime as you will get shot on the way as your Notoriety increases. They use all sorts of things to stop you to disrupt your free roaming experience, not just shooting you. The Story Missions are fun and exciting and the story overall is pretty good. However, the missions are quite little and once you finish them, you can only roam the city, do crimes, unlock stuff and redo the missions. This makes the game boring after you finish the Story Missions as the crimes do get repetitive after doing them for a while. It took me around 6 hours to finish the Story Missions without stopping other than to do crimes and collect things occasionally. This should give you an idea of how short they are. Loading screens in this game are okay but crimes do not feel like they are part of the city. Whenever you go to a crime, you see the crime marker and once you go there, you don't see any criminals and instead a loading screen appears and you get spawned somewhere with a few criminals. After the crime, a news report screen will appear and you will return back to the city. This makes it feel like a missions and not part of the city unlike the other Spider-Man games where when you go to the crime, you can see the criminals and fight them on the spot without any loading screen and once you are done, you can instantly go back to roaming the city. Lastly, there are some minor performance issues that might affect you but they are not too big of a problem. Overall, this game is pretty short but its missions are fun and exciting. The graphics are okay and the crimes do get repetitive and do not feel like they are part of the city. Notoriety levels are the worst and they are annoying whenever you just feel like roaming the city and there are some minor performance issues. I would recommend this game to those who do not mind the bad points I have stated. I, personally, am fine with it but it definitely could be improved.
Score: 6.5/10

I have enjoyed this game very much. I am an avid Spider-Man fan and this game was most definitely fun. It isn't as exciting as Web of Shadows, and I haven't played the first one, but the game is "AMAZING" dare I say. Overall the game is cool, the suits are sweet, and story is more or less awesome. You will definitely enjoy the final battle though for sure!

I used to be a big fan of Spiderman games. My favorite is Web of Shadows, so I kind of were expecting something like that but with better graphics... And was greatly dissapointed.

The web swinging mechanics don't give you feel like you have to do something with all these acrobatics, because controls were simplified to "press x to look awesome" and "press y to go to the point you want". This doesn't gives me any challenge and boring overall.

Crime fighting were always repetitive in Spiderman games, but because of simplified combat mechanics battles in this game somehow feel even more repetitive.

Spidey himself was changed, he now acts and jokes more like the one from Amazing Spiderman movies, which isn't something I like. A fan of the movie would like this though.

So... I think this game may be good for people who loved latest spiderman films, but if you like any challenge in your game - I would not recommend it.

Don't rightly understand why there's so much negativity regarding this game - sure, it's not the best spider-man game ever made, SM2 will always hold that mantle.
But it's great, all the same. Combat is fun, webslinging is great. For a movie tie in it's pretty damned good.

Worth a play if you like Sandbox games.

My one gripe is that the story is quite short, if you rush it - so don't rush it.

Spider Man does whatever a spider can by: running into walls (not up them), Shooting webs! (with Gadgets) and being a menace to New York due to the ♥♥♥♥ing idiots who don't know why Spidy has a bomb.

I bought this game because I've always enjoyed spiderman games going back to Spiderman on the sega genesis. I even enjoyed The Amazing Spiderman for what it was, just a beat up spiderman game. However man does this game just take a huge dump on all the fond memories of my past with Spiderman. Lets start off by saying that it looks like very little effort was put into this game, it looks like they quit half way through. The character models look decent but the rest of the whole looks like trash. I know every open world spiderman has always had a garbage looking world but this one takes the cake. There are so many AI glitches and weird twiches that almost every thing in the world has.

I played through the whole story and the only thing I remember is that you fight the King Pin for whatever reason? The city morality meter Beenox has introduced is in this game is a nice try at an interesting mechanic, but becomes played out after 30 mins. I would not recommend this game to anyone, it is broken and should not be fixed. Avoid like the plague or play it what do I care.

A rushed dribbyling mess of a game. Obviously rushed to meet the deadline of the movie, the quality declines greatly compared to the last movie game in the series. The Amazing Spider-Man Game was in my opinion, better then the movie it was based on. This game is a travisty to that game. Beenox has made great Spider-Man games in the past, with Shattered Dimensions still holding the top spot. This game is not worth buying unless it ever falls under $15.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is not a great game, let's get that out of the way early, and after 2012s surprisingly ok ‘The amazing Spider-Man’ it is both a disappointment and a definite backwards step for the series.

The first major complaint that can be put against the game is that even on a high end PC the frame rate is constantly choppy, with visual screen tearing and seemingly random frame rate dips even when nothing to crazy is happening in game. The combat retains the style defined by 2009’s Batman Arkham Asylum but still doesn't manage to match its finesse and quality, making it no more complicated than wailing on a single button before dodging the odd attack and carrying on with the button mashing. I managed a 42 hit combo in the very first encounter of the game and as I'm not even particularly good at this type of action that's got to count for something.

The biggest grievance that can be had with the game however is its increased focus on what has always been the worst aspect of the series. The random side quests that require you to beat up some thugs, stop a shootout or rescue a hostage from a car have all returned. Rather than being optional like before, ignoring them adds to a karma style meter. Let it get too out of hand and special task force agents will actively hunt you across the city, stopping you from enjoying even the simple act of swinging around picking up collectables at your own pace for too long before you are forced back into more of the same side activities. Even when you finish the game there appears to be no way to switch this off meaning few will have the patience to see through collecting the 300 comics, multiple checkpoint races or many costumes.

On the subject of the swinging Beenox appear to have listened to fans of 2004s Spider-Man 2, with webs now requiring a building to stick to. Each of Spider-man’s arms is also controlled by the left and right triggers respectively and while not a terrible system in theory it leads to a lot of awkward situations in which you have very little control of the action while Spider-Man cycles one of a very short list of sarcastic quips about how webs need a building to stick to. It's almost as if he is mocking you for the control system fans asked for and how impractical it is to use.

It's not all bad though, the story while a bit slapdash is filled with a rogues gallery of villains from across the series and has some interesting moments and even some good twists. Collecting the suits is also still a draw and will bring out the inner comic book geek in almost anyone.

Overall the amazing Spider-Man 2 is a disappointing sequel, inferior to the first game in almost every way it smacks of something that had to be out in time for the release date of its theatrical counterpart and it's a shame. With a bit more time and a bit more thought I still think Spider-Man can have his Arkham Asylum moment.
