Polygon: "The biggest surprise of Sony’s Spider-Man is that it makes you feel like a superhero within seconds. Other video game developers have tried to capture the feel of swinging through Manhattan as Peter Parker’s alter ego. Some have come close. Most have landed on the other end of the quality line, somewhere between Forgettable and infamous. We can’t speak to the entire game, but when it comes to instantly being the webslinger, this Spider-Man bests them all. Yes, all of them."
