"My time spent with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was nothing short of frustrating.
Shooting webs that don’t connect to buildings is an action often punctuated with a snide remark from Peter Parker about how bad I am at swinging. Combat is so easy that I sometimes found myself dozing off, only dying because my brain couldn’t focus on such a dull and tedious affair. The story is an odd mix of the first and second movies, not acting as a prequel, sequel or any other “equel” that may exist.
Even as a mega fan of the web slinger, I knew well enough to go in with extremely low expectations. I came out on the other end having played a game that only managed to meet those expectations, but not surpass them."
