On Thursday, September 7, the new Spider-Man game was released on PlayStation. After only one week on the market, it has already received very positive reviews. Scoring an 87 out of 100 on Metacritic.com as well as an 8.7 from ign.com, this game is sure to entertain you for hours on end.
The game is an “Open-World” game (like Grand Theft Auto), allowing the player to roam freely through a virtual space. In Spider-Man, players have the ability to explore Manhattan without restriction, and simultaneously appreciate the game’s stunning graphics.
To the credit of the game makers, Spider-Man’s fighting style in this game is true to his origins. It was taken directly from the Arkham series (Batman) and suits Spider-Man very well.
The only unfortunate aspect of this game is that it’s for PS4 EXCLUSIVELY. Sorry, Xbox and Nintendo fans! Time to swap out your current gaming consoles and set up the PS4 on your primary gaming TV.
