3.0 out of 5 stars 7/10
A good game. Playing as spidey is always fun, and the web swinging in this game is quite cool. Pretty neat graphics and an okay story. If you're into spiderman, buy this game, if you're not, don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game from the Amazing Spiderman!!, 3 July 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Amazing Spider-Man (PS3) (Video Game)
Brilliant fun!! From swinging around the city collecting comics to fighting bosses the size of the moon!!! From a marvel fan and a massive fan of the spiderman 2 game, i had high hopes for this game....and they certainly delivered. The game in its self isnt super long but the replay value is very good, from replaying any of the previous missions to swinging around the city stopping crimes. For any spidey fan this is a must have!! Even if not a fan this is still a great game with some very funny voice acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best tie-ins ever, for sure., 12 July 2012

When it comes to tie-ins, as you probably already know, it`s good habit to read some reviews on the game you`d wish to buy before purchasing it. That`s what I did with this Spider-man videogame and I was really pleased to find out that several video games websites gave the title a 7-8 out 10 rating.
I`ve played all the Spider-man video games and I must admit that The Amazing Spider-man is probably one of the best video games dedicated to the famous wall crawler.
In first place it`s Amazingly entertaining thanks to its various nature of gameplay. You will fight (there are several spectacular moves and combat actions), you will climb walls, you will swing through NY city, you will visit Peter`s home and so on. There are very few boring moments (maybe it`s a little bit boring to save people all around the city as they are slightly repetitive missions) and story presents several thrilling moments.
The Spider-man world is highly detailed and accurated. If you`re a spider-man fan, you`ll have a very good reason for getting every single game collectible item in order to unlock very juicy extra contents.
The Amazing Spider-man is a great surprise in the world of tie-ins.

The characters, voice overs and maps are at a high calibre. This provides me and you with trilling experiences of action and adventure. You can get lost within this game- hours of fun and so much to do!

A exceptional buy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game, but slightly lacking, 24 Aug 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: The Amazing Spider-Man (PS3) (Video Game)
Overall, this is one of the better Movie-tiein games I've played, and one of the best Spider-Man games I've played. It has a sand-box freeroaming game style, and just getting out and swinging around New York is a lot of fun. They replicate the movements of Spidy from the movie quite nicely, so you get that sense of speed and adrenalyn each time you web-swing.
The controls do take some getting used to, especially since you can crawl on walls, ceilings, pillars, rafters, etc etc and sometimes figuring out which direction on the D stick makes you go forward is a bit tricky. However, this shouldn't take more than 3 missions or so. Overall the controls are smooth and fun.
The feature "Web Rush Mode" is also interesting. It allows you to slow down time for a brief while, during which you can choose a destination to speedily swing to, or an enemy to web-smash and beat up. It really gives you the feeling of agility and speed and reflexes you'd expect if you were Spider-Man.
Combat and the leveling system takes a LOT of hints from Batman: Arkham City. Similar upgrading system, combos, takedowns, etc etc. This, of course, is by no means a bad thing. Combat in Batman: AC was amazing, and I always did think it'd work well in a Spidy game as well. Combat involves a lot of bouncing around that you can acheive just by hitting the square button for normal attacks, and the triangle attacks for dodging and countering. You can also trigger "signature moves" during combat (once your combo meter gets to a certain number) that immobolize enemies instantly. You also have stealth takedowns, where you can swoop down and web up an enemy without causing too much of a disturbance. So, yes, very similar to Batman: AC. Still, it's fun to play and watch as ever, and the movements are VERY Spider-Man. You can also incorporate shooting webs at enemies to freeze them up momentarily, or to grab them and swing them around. Also, thanks to Spidy's super-strength, you can grab vending machines, garbage cans, gas tanks etc and throw them at the enemies to damage and stun them for a breif amount of time.
The enemies are pretty standard: Thug with fists, thug with knife, thug with gun, thug with BIGGER gun, plus the occational robot and mutant. The boss fights are where this game really shines. You face off against new interpretations of old Spidy villains, and each one is unique and fun to play. This is one instance where I actually found it better than Arkham Asylum at least. There are also several side missions, such as beating up muggers, stopping car chaces, rescuing people etc. Not to mention unlockable comic books (whole digital copies of Spidy comics) and costumes.
However, in spite of all of it's good points, the game still lacks something. First of all it's very short, even doing all the side missions. For a sandbox game, being able to beat it in less than 20 hours is... Well, unimpressive. Also, while combat is fun and boss battles are even better, it's not very difficult. Spidy can't take as much punishment as Batman can, but then you have a button that basically is an "escape everything and everyone immediately" button, which means even if you're in a tight spot you can evacuate pretty quickly. This means it's easier to stealth takedown guys, even if you get noticed.
All the missions are kind of repetitive as well. Go from point A to point B, find so-and-so, etc etc. They throw in a few good ones, but overall it just felt like doing the same thing over and over again. Overall, it just felt like the developers could have made this a whole lot bigger and more fun.
These are, however, minor gripes. If you like Spider-Man, or if you enjoyed the movie, you'll enjoy this. The story is good, the action is fun, and you really feel like you ARE Spider-Man. It's not very long, but you can replay previous missions any time to get that 100% completion.:)
