Marvel’s Spider-Man Review Roundup: The Best Superhero Game Ever Released?

The first of Marvel’s Spider-Man reviews from the biggest sources of the video game industry have started popping up today, with the impressions exceeding expectations. Great action combat, the best graphics on PlayStation 4 and “the best superhero video game ever made” are just a few of the appraisals the game has managed to get from reviewers all around the world. Take a look at the Marvel’s Spider-Man Review Roundup.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is a PlayStation 4 exclusive title, developed by Insomniac Games, the studio behind Ratchet and Clank, Resistance and more. For months now, Marvel’s Spider-Man has been in the first place of awaited titles for 2018, with a massive amount of gamers waiting to get their hands on it.

Interestingly, Marvel’s Spider-Man surprised even the most renowned reviewers in the industry, most of which claim that Insomniac Games’ new title is the best superhero title that has ever been released.

Destructoid – 9 / 10.0

Spider-Man isn’t just a great superhero game, it’s a proof of concept for Insomniac as a company. This project shows that they can basically handle pretty much any universe, because if you can accurately recreate Peter Parker’s nimbleness and gentle heart you can do anything: and with multiple teasers at the end, I think they’ll get that chance.

Game Informer – 9.5 / 10.0

The story shines as brightly as the gameplay – both deliver heart-pounding excitement

GameSpot – 9 / 10

A spectacular cinematic presentation and sensational core mechanics help Insomniac’s take on a Spider-Man game shine, in spite of some unimaginative open-world activities.

IGN – 8.7 / 10.0

I wanted Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 to make me feel like Spider-Man: To sail between the highrises of New York City, to nimbly web up hordes of enemies, and tussle with familiar, animal-themed villains. Insomniac Games’ first foray into the world of Marvel handily delivers on all of that. But what I didn’t expect from Spider-Man was to come away feeling just as fulfilled to have inhabited the life of Peter Parker.

PlayStation LifeStyle – 9 / 10.0

Marvel’s Spider-Man doesn’t innovate on the open-world genre, but Insomniac doubled down on creating a spectacular Spider-Man fantasy. It simply feels good to travel through Peter Parker’s New York as the webslinger, even if whatever Spidey-suit you choose is covering a competent and entirely expected open-world formula. Filled with more emotion, heart, and humanity than we’ve seen in superhero adventures before, Insomniac doesn’t need to reinvent the open-world wheel. Marvel’s Spider-Man embraces the man behind the mask and gives us the best interactive Spider-Man experience to date.

Telegraph – 4 / 5 stars

Yes, the swinging is sensational.

TrustedReviews – 4 / 5 stars

Marvel’s Spider-Man has a surprising amount to say for itself and continues Sony’s run of best-in-show first party exclusives. Comic book fans will fall in love with Insomniac’s loving rendition of the webhead’s Manhattan, but fans expecting the next God of War might find themselves a little disappointed.

USgamer – 4.5 / 5 stars

Insomniac Games takes Marvel’s most popular character for a spin and the results are fantastic. The developer establishes its own Spider-Man with a unique supporting cast and a beautiful recreation of New York to play around in. This is an absolutely beautiful game, with solid combat and a great story. Most of all, it really sells the feeling of being Spider-Man. The gaming history of Spider-Man has been uneven, but this is an amazing entry in that history. Pun intended.

VideoGamer – 8 / 10

While some of the antiquated trappings of open world games from years gone-by are present, Spider-Man manages to remain a delight through great acting performances, a compelling story, terrific combat, and joyous swinging.

As you can see from the Marvel’s Spider-Man Review Roundup, the hype surrounding the name of the game, stood tall to the expectations. Sony has managed to claim 9 start review for two of its games this year, including God of War as well.

Marvel’s Spider-Man releases in just 3 days, on September 7th, 2018. Will you grab the game as soon as it releases?
