The Amazing Spider-Man Review - AusGamers

AusGamers has reviewed The Amazing Spider-Man and writes:

"There are a handful of decent ideas here, but nothing within is original. And there’s a serious lack of excitement; of tone and transition. The lack of a day/night system or dynamic weather, for one, keeps at bay what has the potential to be awesome. Beenox needs to stop spending so much time rendering the perfect Spider-Man avatar, and remember what it means to just be the wall-crawler. (3DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, The Amazing Spider-Man, Wii, Xbox 360) 6.8/10

Man this game is getting a lot of bad reviews. Not bad as in the game being bad, but the points they make in their reviews. Like this one for instance goes on to say that the game uses the movies story line too much. Of course it does it is based on the movie and is basically a sequel to it. WTF did that expect, a game that is named after the movie, has the same art and style, has some of the same characters, but be based on the comics? I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but your your opinion is that a game is bad for following the movie, when it is practically based on the movie, kind of makes your opinion a dumb and non-thought-out one.

This point your making is one of those things that disappoints me with these reviews that seem to cater to what someone else did with the same or similar genre. Here for example it would be Batman AC. These tactics or behavior is merely a thorn in the brain.

The Amazing Spider-Man so happens to be its own in a sense its story starts where the movie ended and its added character villains. From the trailers and interviews alone made me interested in my pre-order of the game. And once I saw early game play of the retail version, I was sold.

Funny thing, gamers have been giving this game higher scores than the paid critics catering to a specific genre or play style or game series. Reviewers that seem to be puppets to the critical mind. And to what other "Professional" reviewer sites are saying on the game at hand. To be more fair to everyone, this game deserves an 8.0 - 8.5 at least.

No, because I'm also pointing out that movie-based games have a tendency to be bad, and this game is no exception

" .. movie-based games have a tendency to be bad" is a thorn in the brain for some gamers or game critics in becoming a negatively influence. The one thing different with The Amazing Spider Man is that it leaves off where the movie ended. And added story and other characters to pull away from the "Movie" clone death trap.

Another influence would be comparison to what other game developers did with the special added elements like "day/night system or dynamic weather". These expectations can take away the respect of what the current game developer is trying to present. More so in this case where your dead line is determined by someone else. One interview with one of the staff members of Beenox stated this to reveal what other ideas that they did not have time to add.

This is not a bad game but a great and FUN game with a few set backs that some people get stuck on more easily than others. To be fair for everyone, 8.0 - 8.5 at least.

I watched my son play this game for over 6 hours yesterday. Fantastic game.

Don't listen to review sites anymore. Read about the games you like and then rent them. If you must read reviews then find a few reviewers that tend to have the same opinions as you. It's hard to do, I know, but the rewards of having reliable reviews are worth it.

P.S. This game offers two free tickets to the Spider-Man movie coming July 3rd. Bet the review didn't mention that, now did they? Deal is at Walmart for those interested.

That's because that deal isn't available in Australia, which is where this review came from :)
