Spider-Man: Miles Morales PS5 review - pretty spectacular [Metro]

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.

RaidenBlack389d ago

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?

Anungunrama389d ago

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.

BigBosss389d ago

Better 8 hours than 4 to 6 hours.

Battlestar23389d ago

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.

CrimsonWing69389d ago

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*

P_Bomb389d ago

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

RazzerRedux389d ago (Edited 389d ago )

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.

stefd75389d ago

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

BLAKHOODe389d ago

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.

Flewid638388d ago

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.
