Alright, I am a die-hard Spidey fan, and i've played a decent amount of time. So here's what I realistically experienced:

Graphics: Well, the graphics are decent, nothing ''amazing'' about them, except for Spidey's character model which is cartoonish but nicely done (as well as the other available suits). You won't be impressed by anything else though, graphically speaking.

Audio: The quality of the sounds is impressive, it is very well done. The voice acting, the music, everything is very nice. Spidey's jokes are on point, and funny as always. What is dissapointing is the main menu music, which is just a elevator music type of sounds, very boring.

Story: Well, it's obvious this game was rushed, because the story is not at all polished and tied in. It's basically just a bunch of villains that are being thrown at you, and the theme of ''With great power comes great responsibility'' is heavily exploited. The Comic Book Stand and Stan Lee are a welcome breath of fresh air though. And the ending is, altough simple, kind of sweet and moralizing.

Gameplay: The Gameplay is practically taken from The Amazing Spiderman and tweaked. The Combat is similar, punch - dodge, evade system taken from the Batman series, but somehow it doesn't get boring that easily, i think because of the fact that when you hit someone it feels like you hit someone, the impact is felt. The Web-Swing mechanics are AWESOME, this is the best swinging game since the PS2 Spiderman 2 days. The Webs actually stick to buildings this time. There is an upgrading menu where you can upgrade Spiderman, and through the story you will unlock two Web-Based abilities which prove very useful. There are also Russian Hideouts which are EXTRAORDINARY, because they force you to think your next move, otherwise you will get caught and lose. Every hideout as well as other missions grant Spidey new unlockable suits which are looking SUPERB! All of them grant bonuses while wearing them, but some of them have rather useless bonuses (Spiderman 2099's bonuses are useless for example). The Boss Battles relay on patterns, and no boss will ever do something that you never expect (they all have around 2-3 type of attacks, so nothing hard at all). By the way, the main menu is pure garbage, looks like it was rushed in the last moments.

I will say this however: THE HERO OR MENACE SYSTEM IS UTTERLY GARBAGE. The side missions through the city are nice and all, and varied: car chase, petty theft, bomb defusing, civilian rescue, police deadlocks, etc. but the system is very rubbish. Each time you do a side mission you ''Heroic'' Level increases accordingly. BUT, if you ignore them too much, your ''Menace'' Level will increase to a point where the Task Force (The Elite Police) will start hunting you using several annoying methods. It wouldn't be such a rubbish system, but it all happens too fast. If you ignore just 10 minutes the sidequests while doing other things in the city (like collecting comic books) your Menace level will rise like crazy, which makes free roam almost IMPOSSIBLE. And on top of that, at the end of each side mission you witness a bland, stale Daily Bugle article which shows a picture of you and Whitney Chang presents the heroic act which you just did. A big minus from me !

Overall, if you are a fan you can ignore all these minuses, but if you don't have the nerve, avoid this game. I also recommend you buy it on sale (like i did) because it's not worth the full price.

A little better than the previous Amazing Spider-Man game, but still doesn't compare to the likes of Spider-Man 2 and Ultimate Spider-Man. Be fore warned that this pc port is capped at 30fps with v-sync on, and if your monitor doesn't have the best refresh rate, then there will be screen tearing everywhere.

Still a good game regardless, but get it on sale

It's a fun game, even better if you're a Spidey fan. The plot is very bad and feels rushed, as we have a lot of bad guys in this game. Gameplay overall is better than the first one. The game is also rather short, but it's worth on a discount.

Pro's:
I love the newer mechanics - absolutely. Give it a few more years and you will be spiderman.
I play causually, and I remember my last game of Spidey - this one is so much more better than the last one when it comes to swinging around. Sometimes, that is all I do (not a huge gamer - (I just like the release/relax some mental stress). Story line, side missions, etc. didn't really get me envolved - I just like swinging and web zipping. The fighting and story are second to what I want and it was something to do while I am swinging away. eh, gave me something to do, I wonder what happens when I run out of Comic books to grab :).


Con's:
On the (my)PC - key mapping is something of 'in the way of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥'. You have to exit the game to restart it and then re-bind the keys. Test it - remember what you want to change - exit, re-bind - repeat. (or I may just be stupid). Other than that, yep same missions just with some updated style and learning curve.

I would recommend if you just like Spidey!

If you're looking for the best Spidey game ever, stay away. It's enjoyable enough, and the web swinging mechanics are probably the best ones so far, but the story is a bland mess, and the open world is spoiled by the hero/menace mechanic that has you contantly do side activities just so you can keep the anti-Spidey taskforce off your back so you can play the damn thing. Swing and a miss. Go play Web of Shadows instead.

So if you have played any of previous Beenox Spider-Man games, you will know exactly what you are getting from this one. Take characters from the movie, add some from the comic book and throw in a decent story to combine the two.

You web swing around the city fighting various crime in the way of mini games (stop the criminals escaping in a car - beat them up in the street - rescue civillians in peril) while following the main story along. Looks great while you are swinging around town, the rest of the game, not so much.

And be warned, the camera WILL infuriate you at times. Like I said, a typice Beenox Spider-Man game.

If you love Spiderman, then only Pay for this game when it is on sale, I wouldn't recommend paying more than £5.99/$7.99.

This game is enjoyable for the most part, but has really very little to do with the Amazing Spiderman 2 film and doesn't even really follow on from The Amazing Spiderman 1 Game (apart from a few pieces of dialogue scattered and sparse). The game is much more cartoony (in comparison to the first Amazing Spiderman game) and so the graphics do run smoother but do not look as visually pleasing in some respects. Because of this though, the game is a lot more stable than the first game which would crash regularly. I completed this game and didn't personally suffer a single crash, but the first game would crash approx every 2-3 hours.

Because it is more comic-based and cartoony, there are a lot more spider suits that can be unlocked that have their own benefits to using them. each suit can be "levelled up" as you complete missions and so their stats will increase as you play. That being said though, I played the game on normal difficulty and regularly changed my suit (about every hour) and so the highest level one I had was the starter suit and that was at level 6. Personally, I didn't really notice a big difference in the benefits of each suit. I am pretty confident that you can play the whole game in one suit and it never really be a big deal. It is nice that they have added the variety, but the level system just seems redundant to me.

As with the first game, there are a ton of repeatable side missions and once you complete one type then you know exactly what you need to do next time you do it. There is variation in having different crime missions to complete, but there is zero variation in each type of crime. For example, I completed four burning building missions (where you save hostages from the fire) in a row and every time the mission was at the exact same factory with the victims being in the exact same location. Basically the game just kept spawning the same mission over and over and you don't know until you accept the mission and it loads in. The real annoyance here is the fact that they have added a Menace/Hero system where every time you complete a mission you will get Hero Points and every time you fail (or miss, more on that in a moment) a mission then you will get menace points. If you fall too deep into the red (menace) then the Oscorp goons will send everything they have after you and make it pretty hard to get from A to B without being attacked. This system is inherantly flawed as the menace/hero meter drops way too quickly and so it becomes a requirement to complete the non-variable side missions on an almost constant basis if you want to avoid being attacked. What is even worse is the fact that the side missions spawn at random on the map and are on a timer. If you do not complete the mission before the timer runs out then you "miss" that mission and automatically get menace points and as it is frequently spawning missions on the other side of the map, you will undoubtebly miss a ton of these. As someone who suffers a little with OCD, seeing so many side-missions automatically "fail" due to time out is a real annoyance. Personally I preferred having the missions spawn depending on where you were in the story and so you could take your own time to explore and complete them.

That is another thing with the menace/hero system. Because you are under constant scrutiny and you are almost constantly losing missions to timeout and so you feel like you are in a mad rush to get from A to B to complete a mission before you lose too much hero status and the Oscorp goons come out to get you. This really makes the game feel like a mad dash to the finish line and destroys the feeling of freedom to explore that other spiderman games (including the first Amazing spiderman game) have given you. As with it's predecessor, there are hundreds of comic book pages to collect as you play but due to this enforced urgency I have to say that I hardly found any whereas in the first game I had collected most as I was playing the main story.

They have made an effort to improve webslinging and swinging from the first game, as in the first game it was as simple as just holding one button and pushing forward. Spider would continually through webs as he needed them, even if it didn't look like there was anything to swing from. Well in this game, you know have a button for the left arm and one for the right. This means that you need to swing from whatever side has something to swing from in order to get to where you need to go. This is a little strange at first (I had just finished playing the first game when I moved on to this) but does feel more natural than just holding one button down constantly. However, this system also has it's flaws. On a regular basis you will be next to a skyscraper or have buildings on both sides but you will press either of your webslinging buttons and just hear an error noise. This seems to just be a random occurance and can be particularly annoying when trying to get somewhere in a hurry or trying to follow someone on a chase mission.

Another annoyance for me is the fact that you have to get the metro to go back home to change your suit. The suit picks up damage very easily and quite often is shredded after one or two side missions, which made me want to change it quite often. In order to do this I would often have to get from one side of the city to the other in order to use the train so I could load in Aunt May's house where I could change my suit. What made this even more annoying is that you have to wait for the train to come out of a tunnel, which usually means swinging forward and backward for a minute until the train is out and you can land on it. In the first game, Spidey was staying in an apartment that was right in the centre of the map and so it was easy to get to from pretty much anywhere on the map. The train in this game though is in the upper right corner of the map and so there are times when it seems a long way away. What is even more frutsrating is that they have "shared" the functions that were in spideys home in the first game across two locations in this game. Aunt Mays house has the suits, everything else is located at Stan Lee's comic book store which is in the bottom left of the map (again not an ideal location!). As nice as it is to see a stan lee cameo in this game, it is frustrating having to gop to one place for your combat mission replays and one place for your suits, both of which on opposite sides of the map. With the urgency of the menace/hero system, it made me spend almost no time at Stan's comic place as it was just totally out of the way and opposite to where you need to be for your main missions.

Another annoyance for me was the photography missions are just terrible. In the first game, you would have to photograph two or three items at a location and there was a bit of a back story. In this game, you photograph one thing to get a sound clip of someone talking. Makes sense? Not at all. Even more annoyingly, you would often have to photograph the SAME things to complete these missions. Usually it was a laptop on the back of a cop car or a "CK" painted on the wall. These missions just made no sense and were a time waster.

Finally, The game itself has less gameplay than the first Amazing Spiderman game by several hours. This is quite a lot considering just how much of the game is already copy and paste repeatables. What is surprising is that this game actually boasts more villains than it's predecessor, but just has less for you to actually do and so you end up spending less time playing the main story than you would in the previous game. In total, I had completed the main story in this game in less than 2 days (obviously that is not constant gaming either).

I would only recommend paying for this when it is on severe sale.

A game that felt short, but offers replayability for completetionists. If you care less about getting everything done in this game, then 7 hours you shall have in this game. Story is so short and easy. Prefer first game. Didn't regret getting this game though. 8/10 for more things to do.

This game has new features which people would like and it has a good storyline. Also we could play the game daily even after completing the Story as there will be missions coming next to next to make the game even cool. I like this game. I recommend it to others.

Performance is only marginally better than Arkham Knight. Be warned.

The game itself is okay. It's a movie game so I didn't expect much, but the first Amazing Spider-Man was a lot better. This one tries to follow the movie's story loosely and just adds in random villains in random places. I did like that the kingpin is in this, and is pretty well portrayed, but the other villains felt forced (and probably were). The web swinging is a high point in the game, but it's terrible performance makes it unenjoyable. With every swing my framerate fluctuates between 30 and 60 fps. The new stealth system is excellent, and resembles that of the Arkham series somewhat, but is much more difficult. I had a lot of fun with the stealth. The voice acting, especially for Max Dillon was cringey. I actually cringed at his performance. Not everyone was bad, but some.

Conclusion: If you really love spider-man, pick it up at a very low price. If not, then skip.

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....
