5 Ways Spider-Man Shows Other Superhero Games How It’s Done
Traversing NYC Feels Amazing
Since Spider-Man PS4’s announcement years ago, the first question on everyone’s mind was whether or not Insomniac could truly nail that freeing, rushing sensation of thwipping through New York City, something that’s truly iconic to the web-slinger. Could the same incredibly enjoyable swinging be recaptured from the outstanding movie tie-in Spider-Man 2 game? Critiques and gamers alike were pleasantly surprised upon seeing initial footage of Spidey traversing New York City. Even more so than in the ancient Spider-Man 2, the swinging seemed faster and less constrictive, allowing players to run along buildings and launching themselves through the city’s skyline.
Actually playing the game feels almost like an entirely different experience than zipping through the streets of Spider-Man 2’s limited depiction of Manhattan. The swinging, though much more simpler than the aforementioned PS2 title, provides hours of leisure entertainment and encourages players to attempt aerial stunts while launching Spidey at the very peak of his swing. New York is much more vibrant and colorful with crime, jeering, and some friendly smiles on every corner. There’s plenty to see and plenty to collect in this living, breathing rendition of New York City, and you’ll no doubt spend hours stopping a robbery you’ve stumbled upon or just swinging through Central Park rather than completing the main objective.
