4.0 out of 5 stars Webbed Wonders, 8 May 2013
This review is from: The Amazing Spider-Man (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
The Spider Man games have never truly reached their potential, but I have always enjoyed them. The best games to star the webbed wonder have opened up New York, allowing you to swing around and solve crimes. Last time out, `Spiderman: Edge of Time' did not do this, instead setting the game inside one building. Kudos to Activision that they have returned to the winning formula in `The Amazing Spider Man'; a tie in game that is actually very good.

You, of course, play as Peter Parker's arachnid alter ego in a story set after the 2012 film ends. Gwen Stacey is trapped in OzCorp when a disease is spread that turns its victims into animal/human hybrids. You must search New York for a cure and even call on the help of The Lizard. The main enemies in the game are not the human/animal hybrids, but the OzCorp machines designed to destroy them. These machines are programmed to destroy anything with hybrid DNA, isn't that Spider Man? Yes!

After a couple of early missions the game opens all of New York for you to play in, as well as main mission there are a series of fun side adventures, including capturing fleeing criminals. As an old school gamer I also liked the vast number of items you can collect, doing so will provide experience that you can then spend on improving Spidey's skill set. The feeling of swinging through the Big Apple is as good as ever and graphically `Amazing' is very solid, never glitching or tearing. I loved having the whole city to play in and tackling the various mini missions was as fun as the main action.

The issues with the game are the repetitiveness, not only during `Amazing' itself, but also as a whole series. `Amazing' plays like an updated `Spider Man 2', but seeing as that is the best game in the series, that is not a bad thing. I actually didn't get bored with playing the same type of thing as I was enjoying myself, the action, fighting and swinging may be samey, but it's great. All the side aspects means that the game clocks in at an impressive length; 12-15 hours and is good value.
