Principle of the game
A great adventure, very cinematic where we play a Spiderman in the third person. Players face crime, sway around the city between buildings, and fight hand-to-hand against many enemies.
The characters use punches, kicks, projections during combat. Peter Parker can use attacks with these paintings. Some enemies use pistols, submachine guns during combat. Some traces of blood may appear.
Some cinematic scenes contain other violent acts such as a character being hit while he is tied to a chair.
Local game modes
Just one mode where you go through history.
No online game modes
It is possible to download 3 separate pieces of history from the Playstation Store.
This shows old and new friends and enemies of Spiderman.
Extensions are optional and only serve to extend the universe a little.
The 3 extensions are:
And available for about 14 CAD each.
They can be purchased at once via the extension:
Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps
In Spiderman Game of The Year Edition,there is no need to buy the extensions separately, they are already included.
Eventually, the extensions are also included in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered which is itself included in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition.
If you’ve ever seen a Marvel movie, it’s the same level of entertainment, violence and humor. It’s a great game, great for experiencing the power of the Playstation 4 or 5.
It is technically impressive, artistically and fun level too. A must-have but not suitable for young children.
