Welcome to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the sequel to the 2012 Amazing Spider-Man game. Compared to the first game where you were facing off against cross-species villains, in this one you face off against a mixture of villains, most of which are related to the Ravenscroft Institute. Furthermore, Wilson Fisk (The Kingpin) is orchestrating some shady deals.
Compared to the first game, there are parts where you will be playing as Peter Parker, and can talk to characters with multiple dialogue choices, though none affect the story. The game isn't much harder than the first game, and you may actually enjoy the game more than the original as there are some fan favourites who appear here as well as a nice variety of locations you'll be in.
Most of your time with this game will come with its collectibles and levelling up all the Spider-Man suits, but nothing is that bad, and if you are a fan of Spider-Man then you will likely really enjoy this game.
This game has good fan service with its alternate suits and comics, so it is a cool Spider-Man history lesson as well if you are interested. So let us start!
Step 1 - Complete Story mode on Super Hero difficulty.
Playing through the story will be where you spend less of your time, as most of the trophy time takes place in the free roam after the game. That said, here are the trophies you will earn from playing the story.
Any trophies that have 'Most likely' will be down to how thorough you are in your search for enemies, and the amount of fights you decide to take part in. Naturally any trophies that you don't get, you will be able to go for in post-game free roam.
*Important note* Whilst you can change to a lower difficulty under Settings to beat the challenges, DO NOT change the difficulty until AFTER you have beaten the game, as even if you change it once, it will stop you from earning any higher difficulty trophies.
Completing the game on the highest difficulty without rushing will get you:
I'm on a Roll!
Most likely Breaker
Know Your Enemies
Most likely All Tied Up
Most likely Drop It!
The Hunter, Hunted
Is it Over?
You Are Under Arrest
The Green Goblin
Now It Is Over
Most likely Can't Hit Me
Most likely Timing is Everything
Most likely, if you are thorough: Heavyweight Champion
Most likely, True Hero
Most likely, Master of the Web
Most likely, Friendly Fire
Most likely, Aerial Break
Most likely, Sneaky
Step 2 - Post-game free roam clean up.
It is quicker for you to focus on all the side activities once the game is over, as even if you decided to work on these whilst playing through your story, you will still take the same amount of time to the game mentioned in the above Overview (if you're playing Super Hero difficulty first), unless you skip through the cutscenes, as the maxing of suits takes quite a few hours.
Once the game is over, you can Chapter Select the last chapter in the unlikely chance you missed Friendly Fire .
You will want to replay the 2 chapters with Black Cat in to get the story related Black Cat journals. The remaining Black Cat journals are in Free Roam. Black Cat has 10 journals, 5 of which are in story mode and the other 5 being in Free roam. More details can be found at the Lover trophy.
You can also now go for any trophies that I marked as 'Most likely' in your story playthrough that you didn't earn, as well as work towards all the side activity trophies such as helping civilians, beating up criminals, taking pictures, and a lot more.
The most time consuming trophy will be for maxing out all of the Spidey suits, which you can find more details of in the Ultimate Spider-Man trophy in the guide.
You will earn:
Hunter of Killers
Hero of the People
State of the Art
Step 3 - Platinum!
Woot sauce to da max, my liege. Have a lovely Golden Spider-Man !
Does Everything a Spider Can!
