A cheaper version of the Batman series...
on 10 May 2014
I never played the original Spiderman game, but having viewed the pre-release gameplay, they described the improvements as covered by the previous reviewer.
This game to me feels like a light-hearted version of Batman - the fighting is not as smooth, gliding is far preferred to web-slinging, which can only be done when near a building, map is far smaller with very generic, repetitive scenery, less upgrades...you get the idea. And as far as the storyline goes - it's ok, but my gosh is it short! I was hoping to play this over a long weekend, and after a couple of hours the two nights prior found that it was complete! I was left with very repetitive side-quests dotted over the map that just got boring after a while.
For the price, I can't complain - but I can't see myself playing this again as I have done with Batman several times.
