Marvel's Spider-Man

The swinging mechanic really does feel sublime in this, it's not the biggest map ever but I'll virtually guarantee you won't use the fast travel in the game.

@Nagyeah, I was getting a good feel from all the controls but haven't been able get a good session on it yet. Maybe today, or tomorrow I can move on a bit.

I'm about 50% through this game too. Love it.  The one thing Insomniac have completely  nailed is being Spider-Man. I thought Batman was forever (pun intended) going to be the best Super Hero game ever but the feeling of swinging through the city,  fighting as Spidey with his spider sense going off (just like Bats) and the QTE events done well will be hard to beat now.

I hope those lab research puzzles aren't too important in the larger scheme of things. I got to about number five in the circuit board puzzle list and thought, feck that, life's too short.

 

Call me a traditionalist but I prefer my Peter Parker taking pictures and web swinging into innocent bystanders😀

I think the game gives you the option of skipping them eventually although I don't know what the prerequisites are for it to do that.

Just leave the puzzle for a minute or so,and the option to skip appears.

I did it for all of them,as I hate that crap.

I don't mind the occasional brain teaser. They did some amazing stuff with R&C, especially crack in time. But when you see a big list of gradually stiffening block puzzles my heart sinks a little.

I'm so good at this now, I basically am Spiderman, and have asked people in my house to refer to me as such for the time being.

 

Spiderman, Spiderman, da dada dada, Spiderman....

I'm nearing the 60% mark and I'm of the opinion that this is the best game i've played in the genre. I can't think of a single thing I don't like about it, and that includes the little box puzzles that turn up now and then in the main and side missions, and haven't proved too taxing in the long run.

 

I love the action, the stealth, the characters, the feel of the controls. I love the villains and boss fights, and I'm genuinely intrigued be the main story, and the conflicted antagonist at it's center.

 

Belting effort by Insomniac. Although that doesn't surprise me after all the fun I've had with Ratchet and Clank over the years.

Out of curiosity, do you have the dlc and what difficulty are you playing on?

I'm on whatever default difficulty is. I haven't bought or even investigated any dlc. I'd only be interested if it was serious story dlc.

Just wondering because in the dlc there's quite a lot of challenge rooms and let's just say that get a bit silly by the end...

 

If you enjoy the base game though I'd recommend you take a look at The City That Never Sleeps pack if it's on an offer, it's three story episodes with an overarching plot set after the main game, each one will net you around two to three hours playtime if you do everything.

Yeah the DLC was pretty fun,and reasonably priced,compared to most companies charging £25/35 for bloody Season Passes.

 

From all the enjoyment that the main game gave me,I was happy to pay £14 for more.

Yeah, I quite like story dlc, and I've often grabbed some of the highly rated stuff, like the Witcher ones, elder Scrolls, and the XC2 one, which was fabulous.
