Spider-Man Preview E3 2018 - Spider-Man is one of the most hyped games for 2018 and was playable at E3. Does it live up to the hype? Read our preview to find out!
Overhyped lol I think with how "some" games get reviewed, we all know the ones, I don't think journalists gave a shit about things being overhyped.
Well BoTW was severely overhyped yet look at the 10s across the board. Don't trust critics and never will.
Final Fantasy XIII Grand Theft Auto IV Metal Gear Solid V Some Call of Duty games dmc So on...
@Foxtrot I agree with you on that one. I I remember people made a dumb comparison between BOTW and Horizon Zero Dawn. Some people said Horizon Zero Dawn is “average” game which is their opinion. That game have been praised by Critics and consumer alike. What Zelda Breath of The Wild have ? Sure, the gameplay is a main spotlight but the story and the character are just subpar. The machine in HZD is the main spotlight of the game with engaging gameplay, great story, great graphics and great character development. The machine has unique look and they act differently.
True and botw wasn't even that great in my opinion.
UCForce Is that your own version of the dumb comparisons? Seems like it.
@imalwaysright Ok, how about this comparison ? Why people didn’t complain about Breath of The Wild season pass which you have to buy hard mode behind the paywall ? Horizon Zero Dawn have dlc which is expansive pack and it’s worth more than BOTW season pass. Also, GG give players ultra hard mode for free.
UCForce You're on a roll today. Keep 'em coming because the hypocrisy and irony are so damn amusing!
@UCForce "Ok, how about this comparison ? Why people didn’t complain about Breath of The Wild season pass which you have to buy hard mode behind the paywall ? Horizon Zero Dawn have dlc which is expansive pack and it’s worth more than BOTW season pass. Also, GG give players ultra hard mode for free." And the Horizon DLC was appropriately rated higher than both Zelda DLC's. Also, people did complain about hard mode. Not sure what you are going on about.
BOTW didn't deserve a 10. If the "Zelda" name wasn't attached, it would have never seen even an 8. That was overhype and those perfect scores aren't justified by facts. GTA IV was another over hyped game given so many 10s.
Yeah after completing the game and it’s DLC, the game was really a disappointment overall.
@foxtrot you could add GOW to that list as well while you’re at it. Maybe make it seem like a little less of a troll comment. Because GOW was great, but it was not 94/100 great.
@Kribwalker How the hell is listing 5 multiplatform games trolling?
@fox your OG comment is all about nintendo games (BOTW specifically) Everyone can see that as you bring that game up at every opportunity you have to try to downplay it 😉
You could insert any Sony exclusives into that title and it would be correct.
@Kribwalker "you could add GOW to that list as well while you’re at it. Maybe make it seem like a little less of a troll comment. Because GOW was great, but it was not 94/100 great." Lmao, still crying over God of war I see. What hurts more? The fact that It's PS4 exclusive? Or that it sold 5 million in a month, breaking multiple records all round. What a pity your beloved console has nothing that can compare to GOW quality. Should be interesting to see how you'll react when TLOU 2 releases.
UCForce could'nt desagree more. Horizon was indeed fresh from creative and graphical perspective but it was somewhat very shallow in comparison to BOTW. Aside from the combat mechanics it was riddled with fetch quests and towns with nothing to do...take note that i finished horizon on almost 100% completion, quite enjoyed it, but BOTW as a cohesive phisics engine that let's you experiment things.
Gotta agree to disagree. You shouldnt trust critics yes thats true but im not going to be ignorant. Botw did deserve all the praise it recieved especially for the platform its on. it is a console calibur open world zelda experience on a hybrid console. Youre out of your mind if you really are trying to downplay botw. Its easy to downplay any game when its been out for a year and Every game has flaws but when botw dropped it was turning heads and selling switches like hotcakes. Lets not be dumb here if botw released on the most popular console this gen no one would be talking shit about the scores it got. Stop turning this stuff into a fan war. Back to the original topic though... Spiderman will be amazing!
BOTW deserved what it got. Ok I guess we should not trust critics on GOW huh? Gotcha.
BoTW was a good game though. Overrated just like Odyssey but they were good. I dont take reviews from critics as the gospel truth but they give me an idea if the game has quality. Not just one site but a general idea if its well made. Ive been let down a few times but i do get good games more often than not based on feedback from critics.
Yeah every game is overhyped if it fits your narrative.
Not that it fits an agenda necessarily, but if it fits your taste. Some games I just don't know how they get high scores because I find them boring. I hardly go by reviews strictly anymore. I'll go by my own taste and a select few friends that share my taste.
Any person can consider any game overhyped. It doesn't necesarrily mean that the game is over hyped. About the only thing that really judges if a game is overhyped is if the hype doesn't live up to the final results based on consensus of those who play it or talk about it. Many games which get the random person say they're over hyped tend to deserve the hype they got based on community consensus, but that doesn't mean an individual won't think that it was overhyped. In the end, one person saying it's over hyped means nothing more than that that person expressing their opinion on the game, and it really shouldn't affect someone else's praise or thoughts on the game.
@rainslacker I think I got smarter reading your comment. Thank you sir. I'm super hyped for DQ 11, but I'm sure many are not. Great pionts.
if I was gonna pick any game for any console to follow the hype, it will probably be this game. From what I seen, this is exactly what I want from a Spider-Man game. I can already see myself spending a lot of time swinging around the city and exploring and seeing how the civilians react to seeing me. So f***ing dope to me lol. But real talk. What’s with this sudden trend to hate one the ps4? Hella haters lol
nothing sudden about it. sony keeps pumping out great exclusives and the media tries to discredit them. "crossplay" there's your answer.
@sampsonon You need to take off your tinfoil hate. There is no media cabal against Sony.
Just par for the course. Each successive games starts to ramp up the hate before release. Doesn't mean anything when the game finally releases. After release, we'll get all sorts of opinion pieces on why it is terrible and is actually failing, despite positive critical reception, loads of people loving the game, and high sales. The media just likes to fail over and over again, and it gives the fan boys something to fight about as they at least have a few places that will vindicate their trolling so they can say how they've been right all along, despite never once having a single ounce of personal experience to base their arguments on.
Do you admit there is a trend to hate xbox?
It's a sony exclusive, of course it's over hyped lol
You and @LordJamar Well, you two have no love for PS brand. You guys just hate them with your agenda.
If this is overhyped, then journalism has reached an all time low. There hasn't been a great Spiderman game in years - of course people are excited. How this translates to overhype, who knows.
i’m excited for spider-man. I don’t think it’s overhyped either. It’ll be exciting to see what insomniac has done with this
Looks like every other Spider Man game before it in terms of gameplay the only difference is this one is riddle with QTEs and the way certain fanboys go on about it I have to agree that it is overhyped. Who knew QTEs were so revolutionary lol 😂
Nah. Journalists dont care. If they get a free review copy, its automatically going to get higher praise. Plus if they shat on the game, the publishers are less likely to give them more free shit to try out
Gotta keep those press kits coming in
Overhyped ? No. It’s just feel right.
This is not the first article that has said this. I am not saying it is or is not, because personally I have only seen what Sony has published on the game. But, in watching the demos, I haven't seen anything exceptionally new yet saying to me that, "this Spider-Man game brings something to the table I haven't seen in a Spider-Man or batman game yet".
It’s more close to Spider Man 2 PS2 which is great thing. Because people including myself want to have a good Spider Man game for very long time. I think Spider Man PS4 will do just that.
Very few games bring anything new, doesn't mean Spider-Man doesn't deserve the hype for being a great game.
@SolidGamerX So, what is making this game so worthy of extra hype?
About the combat the article starts with: 'the combat in Spider-Man is incredibly enjoyable. It’s exquisite.'... And concludes with: 'so I’m not writing it off just yet. It’s not bad, it’s just a lot to take in at once. For some players, it may be too much to take in.' Wtf? Haha Not reading further ta.
Yeah the article is a bit all over the place.
Excited to get my hands on this. Haven’t seen a Spider-Man game looking this good since the PS2.
Those old ones were actually fun. I actually hope that they build a whole universe around these games. I mean The Raft is a SHIELD prison. It would be pretty sick.
I'm all aboard the hype train for this, with it being the deciding factor on me owning a ps4 - as well as xbox. Everything i've seen so far is awesome and it was a smart move to show the Sinister Six
The article says it plays a bit like Arkham and if true I'm all aboard. Looks really good.
Botw is overhyped, this spiderman game is genuinely awesome
BOTW is the most overhyped game in history tbh
Nah TLoU is.
Couple of questions: What is Botw and what does it have to do with this person's opinion of Spider-Man? Does calling Botw overhyped make you feel better about this person's hands on take of Spider-Man? I take it this Botw is not a PS4 exclusive because no way one of those can ever be overhyped right?
Zelda Breath of the Wild
Ah, thank you Toiletsteak. I knew it was a non ps4 exclusive. No way a Sony fan would say that about a ps4 exclusive.
Team Litt Silly comment.
I fail to see why BOTW is mentioned at all on a Spiderman article. But...N4G.
There are good reasons that people can make to point out why BOTW is overhyped though. It's not a bad game, but it does come up short in several places, namely the barren world and a less than impressive and practically non-existent story. But most of the fighting over it was because it was instantly compared to Horizon:Zero Dawn. Whether BOTW is overhyped or not is really a matter of personal opinion, much like this article, although the conclusion doesn't match what the author seems to think of the game. While being a good game, I think a lot of the reviews over rated it by a point or so, but that doesn't mean that the hype wasn't justified. Anyhow, it does seem that a lot of exclusive games, regardless of platform, get a lot of these kinds of articles. No reason to try and make it seem like Sony fan boys are just being defensive, because to date, it's easy to understand why people are hyped for this game, and nothing indicates that it will be a bad game, so of course people are going to disagree.
The discussion is regarding a game deserving the hype its receiving, many believe Breath of The Wild was over hyped, your comment just makes you seem salty about it. No way you'd be ok with someone saying something negative about a Nintendo game, but of course you're fine when someone says a Sony game is over hyped.
I wouldn’t call spider-man Overhyped yet, we haven’t seen the full game and insomniac has an excellent track record. If you are calling BOTW overhyped tho then you should also be bringing up GOW on the overhype train. Because that game is not a 94 meta if BOTW doesnt deserve a 97 meta. BOTW was an amazing game, and it was a better game then GOW which was a really good game. The entire world was alive in BOTW. If you could see it you could go there. The enemies had more variations, the world was way bigger, there was more quest, more exploration, more to do, more boss battles, it was an overall better game.
Krib... Classifying things as 'overhyped' doesn't necessarily work when factoring in Metacritic scores.
I put 80 hours into BOTW. I kept waiting for the light to come on where I would say "ah....this is what everyone is so excited about". Nope....never happened. For the life of me, I cannot understand the praise BOTW received. The puzzles in the shrines were fun, but I gave up on the rest. My expectations for Spidey are a lot higher than what I received with BOTW....that much is certain. But then again....I didn't grow up thinking Zelda and Mario were the Alpha and Omega of gaming. I think that has a lot to do with it.
"Because GOW was great, but it was not 94/100 great" What powers do you have to decide that? Cloud power? Your head is in the sky, time to get back down to earth and focus on the games you like, as opposed to the one's that make you butthurt. "BOTW was an amazing game, and it was a better game then GOW which was a really good game." *than GOW, which was... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, that's hilarious. Boy GOW really does destroy you. You literally cannot compare the games In any possible way, and are masterpieces in their own right. Sorry nice try, but your thoughts on GOW are so damn irrelevant LMAO
@doggo and what powers do you have to state botw was overrated? i’ve played both to completion and i can, like critics and fans, state that BOTW was a better game than GOW
But let’s me tell you this, Zelda Breath of The Wild post launch support wasn’t the best because the game have season pass and a hard mode that you have to pay, but you didn’t complain about it. Horizon Zero Dawn post launch support was the best, because GG always listening and gave players Ultra Hard mode for free and a expansion pack that worth more than season pass. God of War keep continue to do that like Horizon Zero Dawn did.
Oh because you've already played the full game? Lol stop being a fanboy.
"Lol stop being a fanboy" Then what are you doing in this comment section? Seeing as you're a desperate xbox fanboy needing to downplay TLOU in a spiderman article?
People already played the game at E3 and they were impressed about the game. Sure, there was few problems of the game, but Insomniac Game have listened and they are improving. What even better is that they playing the upgrade build of the game.
Overhyped because you say so? Give me a break
