If you like to have a game library, this is a definite buy. It's a great game and a beloved comic book super hero gets another great game.

If money is a hard thing to part with, I'd suggest renting. You could probably platinum it within a week if you have the time to devote to it.

I bought it and am not regretting my purchase.

Although I only rented, it's definitely worth buying. It took me 10 hours on normal and I still have a lot to unlock. I personally think it's the best Spiderman game. It's right there with Spidey PS1 and Spiderman 2.

I haven't played any of the earlier spider-man games but I really love it.

I hope no one gets offended by this but the game feels like a mixture of God of War, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Batman: Arkham Asylum to me, and it's great...

Rent it first and see if you like if, and if you do buy it!

it could go either way. it doesn't take much time to complete the campaign, so if you're the kind of person that plays a game once through and thats that then its definitely a rental. however if you're a bit of a completionist it may be best to buy the game. either way i'd recommend playing it

It's a rental. I rented it on Friday and had a day and half with it, maybe two, and I have all but two trophies. It's fun the first time through on normal but multiple play-throughs are an annoyance.

Im right on the fence with this one. I have money on an account at a store & I really like the gameplay I've seen on this. This or Fifa?
