Well yeah. The article literally says its spectacular. lol.
Question: does the spiderman ultimate edition includes Miles Morales expansion? I don't have the original, so I was planning on getting this version if it includes the expansion.
TL;DR: If you take out the mentions of story. In Short: A far better advert for the PS5 than its short length and last gen assets might have suggested. Pros: Ray-tracing works very well amongst the skyscrapers, as does fast-loading and other next gen tricks. Cons: The amount the game steals from Batman: Arkham is still outrageous.
So in other an amazing game? The outrageous 'steals' are common place in gaming, how do you expect games to be made? No platformer could be alike, No FPS could be alike, No RPG could be alike, you can't reinvent the wheel with every game.
"The amount the game steals from Batman: Arkham is still outrageous." Steal sounds a bit stretched. Come on. All games do this. I would say take inspiration from the batman games sounds much better. And whats wrong with being inspired from other games?
But didn't the batman games just "steal" from spiderman combat system on ps2, seems incredibly similar.
Just ordered my copy today!
Only 8 hours long. Sorry but the first one was longer then that it and it's not worth 50 euros/dollars. I'll get it when it's on sale for 10/15 euro.
Better 8 hours than 4 to 6 hours.
It's still to short dues insiders on twitter saying this was 5 hour long DLC for the first game repackage as a full game at full price were telling the truth.
I’m pretty sure it’s around the 6 hour mark. Reviewers said Uncharted: The Lost Legacy was 10 hours long. YouTube blind playthroughs for that game. This game is essentially a kind of spin-off pseudo sequel like that game is. Doesn’t make it bad or anything but a lot of people were expecting a lengthy full fledged game and that’s not what it is. Same with Miles.
“.. insiders on twitter saying this was 5 hour long DLC for the first game” Insiders should know the first game already had three part story DLC called ‘City that never sleeps’. If you know how the DLC ends, it kinda makes sense that a Miles Morales game be made after.
Better 4 to 6 hours than 2 ............ I will see my way out.
2 minutes in heaven is better than 1 minute in heaven.
I've beaten each of the first 3 Uncharteds in the same amount of time and those were $ well spent at launch *shrugs*
Uncharted 4 even had a speedrun trophy for 6hrs or less. The Last Guardian had three of its own. Ico had two. People get too hung up on length. I could spend a cumulative hour in photo mode alone.
You were never going to buy it anyway, Goodbye
Why are you pretending we did not already know this game was going to be shorter than the first? " insiders on twitter saying this was 5 hour long DLC for the first game repackage as a full game at full price were telling the truth" lol...."insiders", sure. Sounds like you'll believe anything if it suits your narrative.
As the review is down i cant see it but i bet there will be a lot of other stuff to do and i bet there will be DLC's in the future. I wonder if that 8 hours is just the main story. People were able to finish Ghost of Tsushima in 20 odd hours, i have 60 odd hours and still not finshed Act 2 yet and the first Spiderman game could be finished in 16 odd hours. I have about 30 odd hours in that before i finished it and i still have stuff to do in it
I'm fine w 8 hours. I get wanting the most out of your money, but a 20 to 50 hour game feels like overkill and I start to lose interest and not finish. 8 to 12 hours is perfect for me.
8 hours of masterclass gaming > 50 hours of mediocrity but hey, do you. lol.
Solid start to a stellar generation for PS5. This will be one of the 4 or so games a grab next Thursday.
Hell yeah Ultimate edition day one baby
I guess they didn't get the right time for the embargo 😅 Literally the only review out there......
It's been removed now. :P
Can't be far off though - does anyone know the exact time?
Embargo ends: 9AM EST. 1 hour 22 minutes from now.
Razzer - cheers mate, already 12am in Aus - might as well wait up haha
Metro posted this and Astro’s Playroom reviews before embargo and took them both down. Tut tut.
Only a week till I play this on my new ps5 baby
Are 8s bad now?
It depends. I have seen here that if it is a Playstation game, 8 is horrible score but if it is an Xbox game, 8 is a master piece.
So it's around the length of Lost Legacy? Not bad! I will be playing through the remaster first and I will play this straight after.
Quality over quantity, would rather have eight hours of amazing than 24 hours of boredom.
Still day 1. Gonna make this my first platinum
I am just kind of less intrigued based on the length of the game. I find it hard to justify 69.99 plus tax here In Canada for such a short game... I wanna play it but not entirely sure if I’ll wait on it on a discount
