After being a fan of the first "The Amazing Spider-Man" game that I finished a few weeks ago, I was really looking forward to getting straight into another Marvel adventure with my favorite web slinging super-hero.
There are a lot of complaints about the graphics on this game being not up to scratch are complete bogus. Max this bad boy out and you get a beautiful spider-man-esk comic graphic style. The lens flare may be a little much at times but that can be forgotten for how well the overall city landscape has been done.
Length wise, the game is lacking a bit. I had finished the main story and the majority of the "side quests" and I have only clocked in six hours. There is the opportunity to carry on playing after you finish the main story to collect the rest of achievements and collectibles, and some people may be into that sort of thing but not me.
The original game kind of had a button mashing feel to it, this however is different in that you have to use all sorts of maneuvers to overcome the enemies. The camera work is certainly an improvement over the last too.
I used the Xbox controller, and it worked brilliantly for the most part, takes a little while in the beginning to get used to the controls but it's worth it.
Action/Adventure and Spider-Man fans should certainly play this!
