GamesRadar’s Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review: Superhero Quality

Okay, so it's no Game of the Year. But there is at least some entertainment value.

Okay, so it’s no Game of the Year. But there is at least some entertainment value.

>With the exception of the critically acclaimed Batman games from Rocksteady, superhero games don’t always fare so well (either critically or financially).

When they’re tied into movies, that’s often an added detriment. As we’ve seen from the review scores for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, this is – sadly – once again the case. So, what will entice you into reading a review?

That review has to be well-written and it has to appeal to both fans and skeptics. You may not end up purchasing the game, but you’ll learn everything you need to know from a well-rounded, quality analysis. And that’s exactly what we get from GamesRadar. Critic Richard Grisham pens a spectacular review that highlights the combination of web-slinging fun and general disappointment.

It's not perfect but fans can still have some fun!

Why We Like It:

Dynamic, well-constructed, and very readable. Unfortunately, these traits are often missing from some reviews, especially with lesser-accomplished critics. We love finding rising stars in the game review world but even so, there’s a reason why certain critics are with larger publications.

— The critic manages to blend entertainment with detail. It sounds easy, but it isn’t. Keeping a review interesting and engaging while still relating all relevant information takes skill.

— Readers get a straightforward, all-encompassing summary.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes in a next-gen wrapper, but feels like a last-gen experience. There’s plenty of fun to be had thanks to some fun battles, an entertaining story, and scads of collectibles. Just be prepared for an experience that looks and feels extremely familiar.

There you have it. Congrats!

It’s not that I don’t like Spider-Man, it’s just that I don’t like it enough to play a game based on it. 🙂

I liked one of the Spider-Man games back on PS2. I think it was Spider-Man 2.

Since then though, there has just been better stuff to play.
