Marvel's Spider-Man Director Bryan Intihar said that Rocksteady redefined superhero games and Insomniac wants to be at their same level with this game.
It's a high bar, but I think they may have done it.
I sure hope so!
Yeah they have a good shot at being at their level. The game looks great.
Yeah gotta surpass Superman 64. Tough competition out there..lol
the hype is real, well my hype that's it.
To our surprise our Xbox only coworker just preordered the red bunduru. Now he is dual wielding
I really don't feel the hype for Spiderman tbh... insomniac didn't try to make a unique Spiderman game with unique gameplay that you make him standout in comparison to Batman. I'm honestly more interested in Days gone than Spiderman. I really want to see what Rocksteady does with their next superhero game.
I wanna see you web sling with Batman.
and wallrun or crawl
Even Insomniac themselves say they were inspired by Arkham's gameplay and you have to be blind to not see that the fighting and stealth is clearly taken from the Arkham game.
his game will be able to stand out on its own. Spiderman has lots of unique abilities that can give that gameplay a little twist. And of course, it is spiderman.
How much different could you make a beat em up game though? Spider-Man is plenty different enough from Batman. For starters Spider-Man is far more interesting of a character. :)
I like Spiderman and I'm hyped for this game big time but, a more interesting character than Batman? Nah.
Not directly copying the hiding in the rafters stealth attacks would be a start for not copying them. However, in this case I feel like these attacks are almost more suited to Spiderman what with the hanging people from the ceiling. Spiderman just doesn't seem like a stealth kind of superhero to me though. He's more of a run in and beat everyone up with his heightened agility type of hero.
more interesting lol naw Spiderman is cool but Batman is better in almost every way.
' @Scatpants Spidey is very much a stealthy super when he needs to be. Which is pretty often.
"Inspired by" =/= nothing unique. The combat looks similar, and that's about it. Do you know how much work it takes to have 20+ unique suits in the game, all with abilites and upgrade trees, on top of actually modelling them? Of all the Spiderman games made since the 16-bit era, this has to be the first to actually go in depth with the relationship between Peter Parker and Spiderman, highlighting his persistent fight for parity from the comics, nevermind playing as Mary Jane and possibly Miles Morales. To say there's nothing unique is to say they didn't make a Spiderman game.
The stealth attack sections are almost a direct copy.
God, I hope they release a demo of this game... You won't believe how different the combat is... That's the best part of the game, better than swinging... You can do tricks while in air after swinging too, if you want something new...
I don't understand why people praises rocksteady like they "invented? Innovated? gameplay" all they did was improved on systems that already exist on old games. I assume that people who says this only played halo during the ps2/xbox/gamecube gen. They only played halo they have no idea how other games slowly improved through the years.
You’re more interested in a generic zombie game with mediocre combat compared to this work of art by insomniac? Good luck with that. I bet metacritic for Spider-Man will blow days gone out the water.
Nah no one wants mediocre, they want different than Batman.
Who is this "they" you're representing? Are these all the voices in your head?
Oh sorry maybe you do want a mediocre game that's just like Batman. Sorry for assuming.
Do you even have a PS4?
High bar but I felt Rocksteady lost their touch a little with Arkham Knight...just felt off in some places compared to City. Oh and I mean a Deathstroke battle reduced to one of the same old tank/batmobile missions. Come on it's f***** Deathstroke even Origins handled him better.
They set the bar and no superhero game is able to dethrone them not even the copycat Spiderman game. I didn't mind the batmobile in Arkham Knight but I do agree that the boss fight were not as good as the previous games.
Well thats it then, noone should bother making superhero games anymore. Batman can't be bettered. How is it a copycat game? If it is a copycat game, then aren't 95% of all games copycat games? Surely Spiderman looks better than days gone? But each to their own.
I can tell u from playing the game at E3 it's quality is top notch , Batman city was empty this city is full of people and they feel alive , they basically grabed the Batman combat and cranked it up to 20 , and btw Batman was not the first game to create that combat they made it better and now Spiderman has made it even much better , see Batman combat didn't evolve , Spiderman does , the timing is everything, will depend what combo u pull off as well as all the gadgets , I love Batman all of them I even rebought it on PS4 pro and Xbox one x and my gtx 1070 , I truly have played it many times , but the day I played Spiderman , the demo won me over instantly as soon as I saw how deep the combat was just in the demo , and the gorgeous city and size , and it's verticle big time , and under ground and opps spoiler sorry , but it's a much longer game , just remember exclusive games will all be better then a multiplatform game , always the focus on one platform plus having the back up with always top ports
I love the Arkham series but calling the Spiderman game copy cat ..lol. So tell me who should they take inspiration from? Mario? Call of duty?Anyway, come back to me when the arkham series actually have a living, breathing city filled with pedestrians.
I'm glad you played this game already, is your complete review available somewhere?
Honestly, the choices rocksteady made with Knight were bad and took away a lot of freedom.
It's sad because ever since Asylum all I wanted was Gotham City to drive around in with the Batmobile...we got that yet they relied far too much on the Batmobile, from main missions like the same old tank battles as I stated above to the smaller things like gathering some Riddler trophies. It become annoying.
The driving wasn’t that great to me partly due to the fact it was confined to a city with just the criminals all over again. They did that twice already with City and Origins. I was hoping for a living breathing Gotham with citizens and the like.
Right, the main battle with a hand to hand combat expert being fought in a tank. Makes absolutely no sense other than that it would be easier to make than a legit boss battle.
Unless Spider-man turns into a tank for half of the game I think they may have surpassed them.
That is the stupidest fkn thing that i have ever heard.
It's only stupid bc it had to be said at sone point. But yeah, the likelihood of Spider-Man turning into a mechanized tank is slim to none so I'm confident we won't have that issue at all. Edit: I swear, if I have to eat my words on this I'll say that I'm quitting console gaming but I won't actually.
@ Dee Of course it is but that’s the only way it doesn’t have a chance of being better than Arkham Knight. Those misguided Batmobile segments absolutely ruined the game, what were they thinking.
Yeah, but there were two games before that game and both were well received.
I thought the rock steady games were a little over rated and borrowed from the spider man ps2 games. Everyone praises the combat in those batman games and they definitely did a good job but all they did was refine what already existed. These are very good games but lots of newbies and shortsighted gamers gave it a little too much credit imo.
You mean the MultiPlatform ps2/Xbox/often GameCube games that Activision, Beenox or whoever made that you"te giving too much credit to one platform for? If anything at least give the credit to Activision & the like. And while I can see the point that you're trying to make, the combat between the Batman games & those did enough to separate themselves from one another. If anything to me, while spiderman may have aped a bit from Arkham to a lot of folks, I feel that Sunset Overdrive is TRULY the game from which spidetman does a LOT more borrowing from. From the initial release snippets of the way he traversed areas & such & beyond I could see a lot of the DNA from what insomniac did with SSOD injected into spiderman. Would surely make sense given that they'd just be taking what they learned from that experience and building up on that layer
Hey man I’m talking about games not platforms but I get it you n4g folks like to put people down even when there really is no reason. Like c’mon man you know what I meant. And now I’m sour. To your second point...... duh
That was quite the overreaction. And a bit hilarious that you say "Beenox or whoever" when you are preaching about giving the credit to the appropriate entities. And, by the way, it was Treyarch, not Beenox. Beenox did not make a Spider-man game until 2010.
I don't see them topping rocksteady but if they do ill happily eat my words. I hope they do raise the bar so rocksteady will have to do even better next time.
It's Insomniac, they know exactly how to do this sort of thing properly.
Insomniac has so much veteran talent and incredible games under their belt, that I dont think it'll be a problem to surpass what Rocksteady has managed to accomplish with the Dark Knight.
If the game is as good as Spiderman 2 was, or even better, then I can't imagine Insomniac not being at that level. I'm genuinely looking forward to the game, which is a bit of a rarity to me - become a bit too jaded lately.
Ouch way to throw Sucker Punch’s work with inFamous under the bus
He's probably thinking licensed superhero games.
Spidermam is leaps and bounds over any of the ac copied arkham games give me a dang break
I could have done without the direct copy of Batman's stealth areas.
Thinking about canceling my Spyro pre order and getting this instead
They appear to have already done it.
Reaching for the stars with the Arkham series, but Insomniac has all my support. The previews alone look like the best Spiderman game ever made.
Launch day is getting closer. I cant wait to play this.
Not ready yet still trying to Plat Detroit, wait wait wait.
You have plenty of time to finish detroit. Im just finishing off the last couple games in the mega man x collections
lol, Almost 82%
Hang on, didn't Rocksteady just take AC combat and refine it? Plus with Batman it was really all about counters whereas Spider-man's combat is not. Sure it takes inspiration from Batman but it's not a straight up copy and paste at all. I think anyone who appreciates video games will appreciate what Insomniac is doing here. As a long-time gamer who's seen it all, I'm very excited.
Copying large sections of their gameplay looks like it helped.
