PS4 exclusive Marvel's Spider-Man is pretty good, but did you know that its also the most critically acclaimed Spidey game?
“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.
Good work insomniac
the game is really good.
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.
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.
Speaking of stan hope most saw his cameo I. Game.
I'd let Capcom make a Blade game if they can channel their Devil May Cry talent.
That would be really cool since DMC1 was influenced by the first Blade movie.
Yeah, its a crying shame what happened to Infinite.
Scores a higher 88 on open critic https://opencritic.com/game... Regardless this games is awesome and will go on to sell millions of copies.
Well deserved. This games fantastic. Shame for the spoilers but wont stop me
Deserves it completely. Good work Insomniac
Seriously. I'm about 12 hours in already, and I can safely say this is my favorite Superhero game ever.
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
Same here. The combat is flawless too
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.
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.
You guys are losing your minds
Games getting 10s is nothing unrealistic
Grow up dude a game you don’t like getting awesome reviews isn’t the end of the world
@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!
"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.
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
"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.
Well MS isn't getting reviews that would indicate so and I have expressed that about BotW before.
"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.
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?
"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.
Its the newest spiderman game out soooo....
Do I detect salt?... Yep... Defiantly too much salt. That's bad for your blood pressure.
And? Plenty of those other ones were new when they came out and tanked right away
Its the newest spiderman game out soooo....?
What does that have to do on whether the game is good or not?
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....
Annnnnd.....? Sheesh...salty much?
I’m sure you thought this was going to be cool before you actually typed it out
Lol we can all taste your tears bluebenjamin. The drought on the X or the Switch must be a terrible time for you isn't it?
Probably gonna whip up the fanboys, but im gonna say it. Watched my little bro play it on his ps4 pro, its a shame its an exclusive. i honestly think the game would have made a ton of money had they released it on pc as well at least. I know i would have bought it then.
Well yeah, but it's going to make a ton of money anyway.
Lol if you don't already think this game is going to make a TON of money!
Yeah, but there have been multiplat Spidey games in the past and I'm fairly certain this game will outsell all of them. I wonder if Marvel went to Sony because they had been burned by Activision's less than stellar Spider-man games over the years. When it comes to AAA action/adventure games, Sony is the best there is, imo.
Your missing out and it is going to sell just fine!
Bumsick Will probably will make alot more money in the long run because of how many people will buy the console because of this exclusive and will buy other games later on
Assuming you live in the same house as your brother, then just play the game!
And deservedly so, proof that given to a AAA developer yields amazing results. Not some low budget tat from a crap development team.
Exactly. Im sure this one Spidey game will succeed more than all the multiplat Spidey games combined.
Whoever it was at Sony who chose to ask Insomniac to make this game is going to get a phat bonus this holiday.
Still waiting on my copy to arrive.. glad to see it being so well received, you could tell it was going to be special from the footage already seen beforehand.
That's not saying much, seeing as the other ones weren't that great.
For fanboys it does. Gives them a good reason to play a mediocre game and say that it got good reviews so it must be objectively good.
This is actually a decent achievement when you consider every game bar the hideously bad use to score between 7.5 - 9.7 not so long ago for those old enough to remember. A game had to be a broken mess or shovelware to get anything less than that.
Its a brilliant game and does really well sticking to the source material with a few great surprises too. It must be said that the guy playing Peter Parker is fantastic and imho does a better job than Tom Holland in terms of portraying Peter's personality.
Actually, it's tied with Spider-man for PS1 on Metacritic
The article is making the "highest rated" claim based on score and number of reviews. "The closest is Activision developed Spider-Man for the original Playstation, but that score is based off just 19 critics, while the latest game’s score is currently based off 94 critics, giving a more accurate indicator of its quality."
The Ps1 title has less Playstation orientated outlet reviews, so I'd say that's more accurate since there's less bias.
Nope. The PS1 game has 2 PlayStation oriented sites out of 19. Scanning the sites, there are less than 10 PS oriented review sites for the PS4 game now with 106 reviews. As a percentage, you are wrong.
lol @ the fact you actually went and counted the reviews
lol @ the fact you lie and make up crap
lol @ the fact Carl outright owned you in the face by disproving your bullshit. Do everyone a favor and don't comment ever again. Your lack of braincells is hurting the website. Bye.
I didn't lie though. Last time I checked 8 or 9 is higher than 2. "The Ps1 title has less Playstation orientated outlet reviews" was my comment, therefore I am correct. You were the one who flipped the narrative and started using the percentage in relation to how many total reviews there are.
Bahahahaha still trying to spin after getting downright owned with your false downgrade claim. Must be hard for you to eat so much crow. Here read this: http://n4g.com/news/2199801... Oh man your tears are amazing. Maybe you should ask your best buddy Rich for help. Too bad you still decided to post a comment, given your lack of braincells. Such a shame.. just leave.
Lmfao. Frinker got owned so bad.
The number as a percentage is the only way your comment makes any sense whatsoever. LOL. So not a liar. Just incompetent
"A downgrade is a downgrade. Gamers are in the right when they dispute these issues, as damage controlling and fanboying over a blatant loss in graphical quality gets us nowhere" "Rich of ReviewTechUSA confirmed it" http://n4g.com/news/2199801... Where are you? You disappeared just like this downgrade. Oh and where is that "Rich from ReviewTechUSA" fella which confirmed the downgrade?
