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.
