The Amazing Spider-Man, More Than Amazing! ( PushStartSelect Review)

PushStartSelect: "After Wal-Mart screwed up my order and hearing some negative feedback for the game, I started to strongly think if I should still be buying The Amazing Spider-Man. Well we did, and all I have to say is that if you are a Spider-Man fan (like myself) you should be buying this game, period, let alone seeing the movie. I’m a big Spider-Man fan, I’ve owned every single Spider-Man game that released this generation and continue to buy the comics. We wanted open worlds in previous games, and we now got it. Combine that with a sleek combat system, and a good story similar to past title, and you have a game that’s hard to pass up because it is all coming together so well. I once said a previous Spider-Man game was going to challenge Batman for the ultimate Comic Book title, The Amazing Spider-Man comes really dang close." (PS3, The Amazing Spider-Man, Xbox 360) -

Although i like Batman AC better, this game is an awesome and probably the best spiderman game for this generation.

Agreed.

I think the only problem I had was that reviewers treated the combat system like a brand new thing for the Spider-man games. Web of Shadows had pretty much the same combat system...and, I would argue, better web-slinging mechanics. I wish I could move the camera slightly further away from Spider-man. It's too close to him. :/

Yea i actually liked Web of Shadows but i think Amazing Spiderman was a good attempt at a Spidey game this gen. I've completed the game 100% and now i'm playing on super hero difficulty to get a platinum.

The combat follows some kind of Mexican wrestling style. Having the camera where it is makes it a better ride of feeling the sense of loosing control. But I heard this before of having the camera a little bit further away. Maybe a choice selection in the main menu? Non the less, GREAT game for giving Spidey a better placement in the super hero franchise.

I see you comment on most of these Spider-man reviews, so I think you're the man to ask: How many hours of gameplay would you estimate you've spent so far playing? Including replaying it on that higher difficulty.

I'm the guy in God of War who walks everywhere to drag it out. So playtime is very important to me. Haha

I've spent some time. The story for me took probably about a few hours but their's alot to do other than the story like finding all 700 comic book pages. Idk exactly how much hours i spent on the story but yea the game is good but if you're not sure, you should rent it or borrow it from a friend if you can.

I mixed up the playthrough a bit. I played around the city with side missions, petty crimes, car chases, extra and collecting comic book pages on the way before going to my objective. I stretched it out to 15 hours or so. Currently, now that the story is finished. There is now still more things needed to be done in the city. And yes, then there is the pre-order DLC.

I got most of my suits just after receiving a camera (look on Youtube). So I could play with different suits for curtain environments that fit them well. It to kept things fresh besides all of the activity between objectives.

You want to stretch this game out? ... Beenox made it possible to do so.:)
