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. Miles can use electrical attacks. 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


If you’ve ever seen a Marvel movie, it’s the same level of entertainment, violence and humor. It’s a great game, perfect for discovering the power of the Playstation 5.

It is technically impressive, artistically and fun level too. A must-have but not suitable for young children.
