An epic orchestral score worthy of a Marvel movie and exemplary voice acting without exception, as well as all of the 'thwips' and other iconic sound effects all present and correct. No Spider-Man (does whatever a spider can) theme tune, though.
A faithfully recreated New York City complete with changing weather and a day/night cycle, and detailed character models with superb motion-captured performances. Insomniac's game looks utterly stunning.
Varied, intuitive combat that's hugely gratifying, fluid traversal that makes it an unbridled joy to flip and spin between New York's skyscrapers: Spider-Man is never anything but a total pleasure to play.
A plethora of side activities, meaningful collectibles and an engaging story, all beautifully presented. Fans will get a real kick out of all of the easter eggs and other mementoes to be found throughout Manhattan, and all of the different Spider suits to unlock.
An excellent list with a perfect spread that adds extra impetus to acquiring that full 100%, and ultimately bagging that all-important Platinum. The biggest challenge you'll face is earning enough challenge tokens to unlock all of the gadget upgrades and suits. Those challenges are tough.
