As a lifelong Spidey fan, I enjoyed Beenox’s 2012 movie tie-in The Amazing Spider-Man. It wasn’t perfect, but it had a fun combat system and a wonderful open-world version of Manhattan to swing through. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 mostly improves on the formula, offering tweaked web-slinging mechanics, a larger environment, more unlockable costumes, and the ability to play as Peter Parker. It’s still not perfect, with numerous glitches, repetitive side-missions, and questionable voice acting, but Spidey fans will be able to overlook the game’s problems and have fun with it.
