Gameplayer Writes: Another year, another fair-to-average open-world Spider-Man action game. This one begins with a flash-forward to a nightmare vision of New York, where alien symbiotes (like the black goop in Spider-Man 3) have overrun the city.
Things are out of control, with SHIELD agents fighting a losing battle against the faceless, unstoppable creatures. It gets worse: Spider-Man's weakness for the rubber cosmic has driven Mary-Jane into the arms of Luke Cage - every weedy nerd's nightmare! After this teaser it's back to pre-apocalyptic NYC for some free-roaming, interchangeable missions, like pummeling gang-bangers who look like they've escaped from Saints Row.
