NZ Gamer - The Amazing Spider-Man Review

NZ Gamer - The mention of yet another movie tie-in video game is usually met with grunts of disapproval and the rolling of eyes skywards. Especially considering Activision's last effort, Battleship, which was a dud across both mediums. However anyone who remembers the brilliant PS2 game based on the Spider-Man 2 movie knows this franchise has a lot of potential. And the good news is, that winning formula has been revamped for the current-gen market in The Amazing Spider-Man.

The story is too old to be commented.

Game is great, definitely people who like spidey should rent it.

whats so great about it? You barely have full control of the game. Nothing but button mashing/quicktime events with poor animations and webs that cling on to thin air. Graphics are horrendous, besides spideys character model.

They couldn't even outdo a 2004 spidey game. either kids review these games or standards are SERIOUSLY LOW for some.

-.- it's about whether you're having fun. I've been having fun with the game and it's fun to try to get it to 100% completion.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to side with Wesker on this one.

Games are toys. If it's fun it's fun. It's cool if you aren't interested in the game. There* are plenty of games that I could not care less about.

The difference is that I don't go around talking smack about a game I don't own and making a jerk out of myself.

Ot: Price drop and I'm all over this yo.

Not everything has to be about visuals and "being realistic" all the dang time....Its about time a game put emphasis on FUN instead of holding your hand and coming up with a "realistic" excuse to everything.....

Its better than having a gun avatar on the screen and repeatedly pressing the trigger button through 10 linear levels.....

guess people over in NZ have really low standards.

what'd they give portal? a 25/10?

archemides5182198d ago (Edited 2198d ago )

8/10 is the correct score, it's not any better than that, but anyone who says it's less can't appreciate what's there. maybe 7/10 at the lowest. also to ^^^^^^^^ portal is overrated it's a 9 max, but more likely 8 with virtually 0 replay value.

and will there be any replay value after 100% competion of the amazing spiderman? Doubtfull, Or very little at best!
