The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings into action fairly soon. Its latest trailer reveals some of the baddies Spidey will face, including but not limited to Black Cat, the Green Goblin, and Kingpin. For some reason “Ave Maria” is playing in the background.
It looks fun enough, I guess, but it’s time we face facts. There’s no way in hell The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is gonna be anywhere near as good as Spider-Man 2, a.k.a. “The Best Superhero Videogame Ever Made.” And not just because of Bruce Campbell’s cameo voiceover.
Sure, the Arkham series is fine, a thoroughly adequate superhero experience. But it’s no Spider-Man 2. There, I said it. Anyway, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be available on all consoles (even Wii U and 3DS) come May 2.
