Seven days with The Amazing Spider-Man
Who would have thought that it’s been seven days since the release of The Amazing Spider-Man video game, and to make things more special the movie was finally released today, and from what we have heard so far the reviews do seem pretty positive. As you would imagine there will always be those who love and hate a video game like this, as there’s only so much you can do with a character, but the developers have done a pretty good job at trying to keep things fresh.
We have already mentioned that there are two things that make this game stand out above the previous versions, the first is more unlockable costumes for Spider-Man and the second is being able to play as Stan Lee with almost the same abilities as Spidey, but those two things alone will not help to sell a game.
A recent review here points out 4 key features that help to make The Amazing Spider-Man such a good game, the first is the 3D Open-World, the second is improved graphics, thirdly the combat and last but not least the bonus items. However, there are two things that let the game down, poor voice acting and also the low frame rate. Thankfully with more positives they gave the game four and a half stars out of five.
Metro seems to have gone more in-depth and look at so many different aspects of the game, so it’s clear to see that they were able to find several more minor faults. Firstly they advise that you see the movie first before playing the game, as there’s one major plot twist that could spoil the game for you.
The biggest problem that this new Spider-Man game faces is the issue with how often a new version is released, as there’s only so much you can do with the web-slinger. It seems a shame that the true potential of Spider-Man has yet to be realized in a video game, even though this is the best we have seen in years. Do you agree with the 7 out of 10 score given?
These are just two reviews of the game, and while they both have different views it’s clear to see that you could do a lot worse.
