Release date: 20th October.
I waited a long, long time before dipping into the first Marvel’s Spider-Man and even then I was sure about the game after playing it for a few hours. In the end though, I came to adore it and was astonished by the care and love that went into the story and into portraying Spider-Man’s poise and athleticism.
Miles has been one of the best additions to the Marvel universe (Thank you Brian Michael Bendis) and I loved his stand alone adventure. Can’t wait to have both my favourite Spider-Men in the same game and to see what Insomniac can do with the PS5.
I didn’t watch the story trailer because I‘ve found that, sooner or later, I tend to regret doing so but the gameplay sequences from the first presentation were enough for me.
I may not get the game straight away. It may slip into next year. I’ll certainly wait for impressions and reviews. You loose nothing with such a small delay but it can be a wallet saver if a game that is a ‘sure thing’ inexplicable turns out to be an dud.
Edit: If there’s one thing I’d love to see in these games it’s Spider-Gwen/Ghost Spider. I don’t think it’ll happen in this game but I'd be delighted to be wrong.
