“Probably a good sign for publishers to allow developers creative freedom to develop their own take on a super hero instead of creating low budget movie tie ins that was the trend recently.”

I wish Capcom would’ve heeded this basic philosophy when making a game that wasn’t even tied to the MCU but was hampered by its influences.

The story really opens up after some hours in. But I'm doing lots of other things too because I need to upgrade my suit power etc.

Spidey being exclusive to PS4 is for the best of all involved: Marvel, Disney Insomniac, Sony, Stan Lee, PlayStation Nation and all gamers.
Why?
It steered super hero games to the right direction of AAAA treatment to the highest quality that many run off the mill multi-plat Spidey games failed to achieve.
Now super hero game making will never be the same.
I am sure Marvel and DC will take their approach more seriously after this.

According to Jack Tretton Sony holds the rights to all multi plat Spidey games but let Activision handle the publication and development so they can sell Spidey on all platforms.

This time the exclusivity to PS4 worked for the better. No one can touch Spidey games now.

Honestly, the praise you just gave should go to Rocksteady. Insomniac was clearly influenced by the Arkham games when they made Spiderman.

Insomniac took a solid formula and improved on it.

I love Insomniac but yeah, Rocksteady set the standard with Batman. Spider-Man is hopefully cementing the standard, and hopefully we hold other developers to the level of these incredible games.

Sevir69d ago

That last statement is false. Marvel loaned it's IPs for more than a decade to other Developers. Spider-Man was with Activision. Once the lease was up, Marvel Decided to found "Marvel Games" and simply treat marvel game IPs the way they do their movies in their cinematic universe, retain executive control for quality. It's why Sony and insomniac got the deal, for the game, Marvel now owns the Game IP. In the same wT GotG is being developed by Telltale Games and how the new Avengers game is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, but executive oversight is by Marvel Games.

The proof is in the comic book iconic splash screen of the Marvel Logo you typically see on the MCU movies is prevalent on Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4. As insomniac confirms it's the official seal of a Marvel Experience, and the first of its kind in the video game industry for Marvel.

I'd let Capcom make a Blade game if they can channel their Devil May Cry talent.

jeremyj291369d ago

That would be really cool since DMC1 was influenced by the first Blade movie.

trooper_69d ago

Yeah, its a crying shame what happened to Infinite.

thatguyhayat70d ago

Well deserved. This games fantastic. Shame for the spoilers but wont stop me

Jinger70d ago

Deserves it completely. Good work Insomniac

LiViNgLeGaCY70d ago

Seriously. I'm about 12 hours in already, and I can safely say this is my favorite Superhero game ever.

Jinger70d ago

Indeed, also this is the first game that I have used the photo mode. The frames and stickers and stuff you can do is great haha

sammarshall10269d ago

Same here. The combat is flawless too

Legatus70d ago

It's good to know that reviewers didn't "vined and dined" with Sony for this game as they did with God of War, or maybe they did, if anyone know it's you.

Jinger70d ago

Well as far as I know Sony or Insomniac didn't invite press to come to special closed events to play the game and give them shit. Or was never announced if they did.

Spidey also isn't getting 10's mostly across the board which is a bit more realistic.

BlackTar18769d ago (Edited 69d ago )

You guys are losing your minds

AspiringProGenji69d ago

Games getting 10s is nothing unrealistic

Dark_Knightmare269d ago (Edited 69d ago )

Grow up dude a game you don’t like getting awesome reviews isn’t the end of the world

Legatus69d ago

@Dark_Knightmare2 hahahah my man i was being sarcastic, jinger said that reviewers "vined and dined" with Sony and that was the main reason why GoW scored so high. I see with the amount of disagrees that people thought that i was thinking that, but i was just qouting jinger fella. Now i see that i forgot :/

For me it's also one of the few games to really use photo mode often. So many good shots. And have played the game for about 7 hours now since yesterday. It's so much fun!

Legatus69d ago (Edited 69d ago )

"Well as far as I know Sony or Insomniac didn't invite press to come to special closed events to play the game and give them shit."

Ummmm MS and Nintendo also have special closed events to play their games for the reviews but i never saw you say the same thing for them, only for Sony.

"Spidey also isn't getting 10's mostly across the board which is a bit more realistic."

Why would 10s across the board be any less realistic, if the game is a masterpiece to almost all rewiers why would they give less than a 10 ?! Oh and i didn't see you say the same thing for the Forza Horizon 3, Zelda BotW, Super Mario Odyssey which were all getting 10s across the board, only for the God of War.

Jinger69d ago (Edited 69d ago )

I know companies do this for some games. That doesn't stop what I said from being true.

Also Forza Horizon 3 only has 2 10's, 1 9.5, and the rest are 9's.

I also don't agree with BotW having so many tens or grabbing GotY despite me still very much enjoying it. I actually enjoyed Mario Odyssey much more and thought that should have been the nominee.

Edit: I do believe Nintendo has a bump in numbers because of their strict review code rules. They'll stop sending review codes to outlets that continue to score their games below their anticipation

Legatus69d ago (Edited 69d ago )

"I know companies do this for some games. That doesn't stop what I said from being true."

"I also don't agree with BotW having so many tens or grabbing GotY despite me still very much enjoying it."

But i never saw you said that, but you are very much vocal when it's Sony, not when it's MS or Nintendo. That is also true.

Jinger69d ago

Well MS isn't getting reviews that would indicate so and I have expressed that about BotW before.

Legatus69d ago

"Well MS isn't getting reviews that would indicate so and I have expressed that about BotW before."

Well that says more about MS first party studios than about Sony and i didn't see you said that in the Zelda BotW threads.

Jinger69d ago

I agree with you about MS. Their recent outings have been lackluster.

As far as you not seeing me say that, do you stalk all of my comments or something? Maybe it wasn't on here, but I talked about it for sure on that jimquisition article.

I have also expressed my dislike of BotW DLC saying that locking the ability to upgrade your master sword and hard mode behind a paywall is terrible... but you probably didn't see those either, right?

Legatus69d ago (Edited 69d ago )

"As far as you not seeing me say that, do you stalk all of my comments or something?"

Hahhhaha no, don't worry , but i have soft spot, so to say, for the "concerned" xbox fanboys that tend to be very vocal about anything negative in Sony/PS4 threads, but not nearly as much in MS threads.

"but you probably didn't see those either, right?"

It's hard to see maybe one negative about MS and Nintendo when there is much more negative comments about Sony.

The_Sage70d ago (Edited 70d ago )

Do I detect salt?...

Yep... Defiantly too much salt. That's bad for your blood pressure.

Nitrowolf270d ago

And? Plenty of those other ones were new when they came out and tanked right away

SuperSonic9170d ago

Its the newest spiderman game out soooo....?

MasterCornholio70d ago

What does that have to do on whether the game is good or not?

1-pwnsause-169d ago (Edited 69d ago )

first of all you shouldnt be pissed.....

second of all, this needed to happen, or you wanted activision to piss and S**t on this franchise, just like the last 3-4 spiderman games?

third, stop being salty....it actually shows you wanted these games to be degreaded, who told you to buy a system that was not PS4 even though it was going to look like the PS4 was going to Destroy everything from miles away 5 years ago....

Blade9269d ago

Annnnnd.....?

Sheesh...salty much?

Dark_Knightmare269d ago

I’m sure you thought this was going to be cool before you actually typed it out

Ben Dover69d ago
