Activision has debuted a trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man this weekend. The developer says the game is returning to an open world structure, and it will hit stores in Summer 2012.
Open world confirmed i'm happy now give me a hell of secondary missions and suits.. and let's make this the best spidey game since PS1 and N64
Yea. I really Hope this is at least on par with SP2 or Web of shadows.
I didn't play web of shadows but I am hoping for SP2 quality without balloon missions
Spiderman 2 was Awesome!!! Spiderman 3, not so much. Too much of the same thing, I guess. I'm glad they're going with the open world thing again. Clean slate and all that jazz.
the movie looks like crap so I have no hope for the game
I Dunno GunzBlazing...Shattered Dimensions was the best spidey game since PS1/N64. Considering the similiar gameplay style. Amazing Spiderman should be the best spidey game since Spiderman2(2004) The graphics of WOS The Huge Map of SM3(2007) The Epicness of SM2(2004) Fortunately, SM2 was a movie liscensed game, so Amazing Spidey brings hope.
10 disagrees ? wow people actually think that movie looks good ? The suit doesnt even look like its spiderman. Then again I cant believe that anyone paid to go see that crap twilight
*YAWN* Another movie game,tell me something new.
You're an idiot. Oh wait, you said something new... Sorry.
Beenox is still making this one...so, yeah...nine months after that terrible release that was Edge of Time. However, the web swinging does look, well - amazing.
Beenox is working with another company that has been working on the game for a full year and some question whether they were focused on this. I am willing to give them a chance even though they are not what everyone wants...Rocksteady
The game looks nice
It's been 7 years since we have had a really good Spider-Man game. This is looking like the wait could be finally over !
Game looks good but my guess is walking on ground level will be lifeless and boring as fuck.
I will not play any game from Spider-man til they make a sequence for Ultimate Spider-man.
Sequel, you mean? The game had its own sequences, and they were pretty cool, a sequel, with all new sequences would be sweet.
It's a movie tie in game....it will suck. We go through this all the time, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Green Lantern for example....all sucked and were average. Shame the film looks crap aswell....another origin story...........really. I wanted to see an older, wiser Peter Parker not a young kid again who is supposed to look like a geek but instead looks like a ex model hiding behind geek glasses.
It is not a full movie tie in beenox and the other company they are working with(Whom started working on the game a year ago) are able to develop their own story separate from the movie. As for the movie I wish it was not the same high school story again,but it is a much needed reboot after spiderman 3 and maybe we will eventually sucessfully see sinister six on screen. I want spiderman 1994 in movie and game form
What ever happened to the days when after a bad sequel they would just move on to the next instalment and try to do a better job while still progressing the story. These reboots in movies and games are a waste of time and money.
you got it . Only chance for those games are if they were in developpement beyond a year , then tied mid dev into the movie . LIke what happened with Wolverine and Spiderman 2 . And even then it can suck or be just ok (and Marvel properties deserves more than just ok .
It's funny even with the odd few good bits here and there with Spiderman 2 like the open world element, not one developer after that game has took these features for the next Spiderman game and improved on them. Can you imagine a Spiderman game set in a massive city like the size of the map from Just Cause 2...add the inFAMOUS morality system, costumes to unlock with differen't powers and Rocksteadys amazing story telling..........and you could have an amazing Spiderman game. Yet it's Activision so all hope is lost.
activision's right need to lapse , and will eventually . But marvel gotta be more strict too . At the very least try to separate movie tie-in licensing rights (no one cares if they suck , they are their own genre) , from normal games .
I wish WhiteLightning was in charge of development for this game. In reality I don't think the game will be half as good as what he is suggesting.
Summer 2012? thats good to hear. at least it has some time to polish up and be the games it should be. also, seeing that Edge of time (also developed by Beenox) was a bit of a rushed project(imo), maybe this game is the reason why. they need to put all of their focus into this game imo, it could be the new Spider-Man 2 in terms of quality.
yah i would just stick with shattered dimensions
Hmmm... Looks nice... Anyone remember the old PS1 Spiderman game?
Yeah they were awesome. Best one was Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro
i dont mind them returning to the open world idea its just its based from the movie and thats never good at all -_- Beenox......do your best
It is not based on the movie they are allowed to do their own stories just in the movie universe.
needs to be in 3d...bout time it's back to open world, i ain't buyin that other boxed in crap...hopefully this one will be true 720p again.
My son is gonna freak out when he gets this.
It's a still a movie tie-in, so I'll be cautiously interested.
It is not a movie tie in... it is in the movie universe ,but they are free to do their own stories so it will not just feature the lizard and movie plot.
The same thing was said about the Avatar game and look how that turned out.
spider man 2 was a movie tie in and so was xmen origins wolverine and look at them
yes i buy
And these dumb****** couldn't be bothered to do this for Web of Shadows/Edge of Time because...?!?!? "How do we get the people to love the new look costume? I know, let's cave and use it in the type of game they've practically been begging us to do!"
if its similar to spider man 2 than im sold. i missed open world and happy the web swinging looks good
not looking forward to the reboot, or the new costume... but an open world spiderman game, finally!
I would love Ultimate Spiderman 2, but this one looks cool too.. I hope that there'll be 3DS version too :)
I justbeat Edge Of Time my collection of Spidey Games continue (I played all of them). BTW I'm a huge spider-man fan so I'll be seeing the movie at least twice despite the re-boot and different look I'm a web Slinger fan till the end.
