The Amazing Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Man Vid is Remarkably Arkham

Here’s a new vid for The Amazing Spider-Man, Beenox’s latest web-slinging adventure.

The vid focuses on stealth and combat mechanics, as well as something called Web Rush. Web Rush is an ability that allows you to zip up and down from spots dotted around the walls of each area, therefore slipping in and out of view. It’s terribly Arkham-esque, but that can only be a good thing. Check out the vid below.

The Amazing Spider-Man is out in the US on June 26th and Europe on June 29th.

Looks very Batman Arkham indeed. Let's hope it works with Spidey's fast-paced action as well as Batman's sneaky and brutal approach. And let's hope the enemies' AI doesn't force them to attack you one at a time... I hate it when bad guys literally line up single file and wait in queue for me to kick their butts.

Omg this looks so awesome. Still, I can't decide between this or the Ratchet collection... Decisions, decisions.

They seem to have no shame of copying Arkham games ATALL. Looks terrible in my opinion. Hopefully no one buys this game since they didnt seem to put any ideas of their own into the game.

Honestly if any of the other companys out there that want to make superhero games NEED to do what arkham aslyum and city did for them to be good. They were the first true GOOD super heros games lately. I have spiderman but honestly haven't played it yet cause I have a game rotation going on and I just haven't made it to it yet. I knew this game adopted batmans fight style which was just 100% awesome so I knew this was gonna be a good game.

This is Arkham City but with spiderman... no freaking thank you. It's way too similair for my taste. Do something original. The running and movement just looks off.

This isn't Arkham City at all. It doesn't have the same polish that the Batman games had and it lacks in "originality". That doesn't mean to say that the game is rubbish. Far from it.

So everyone that (miraculously) can see that this game copies the fighting style from Batman perfectly, without adding anything new (like wall crawling; I'm just bouncing ideas), have probably not bought Arkham City either. After all, if a game has the same fighting mechanic, it cannot be original in another department any more. Nope. No, sir. Not a chance. Same fighting style as Arkham Asylum? Game cannot be good, original or worth your money. Screw the Amazing Spider-Man game and Arkham City as well.

I'm playing arkham city right now like literally it's going on in the the other room and I wouldn't mind seeing Spider-man in his spot, so what if The Spider-man game is similar. That just guarantees you will have fun.

I played it.

The combat is similar to Arkham. It flows pretty well. Not AS well as Arkham City's combat, but still well. Web Rush makes the game a tad too easy, though.

The combat looks good but I am not interested in it at all though so for that reason I am out
