About Spider-Man 2

It has been three years since the studio released the first Spider-Man game, which was highly praised by critics. The 2020 follow-up game solidified the studio’s position as the top contender in the superhero genre. Now, Insomniac Games is returning for another installment.

“Following the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the Spider-duo of Peter Parker and Miles Morales are back in the next blockbuster action chapter of the Marvel’s Spider-Man series,” Sony’s De’Angelo Epps wrote last year.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is confirmed to be a PlayStation 5 exclusive upon its release on October 20, 2023. Fans will not be able to play the superhero game on previous-gen hardware or on any rival platforms at launch.

What the reviews are saying

All of the major reviews that have been released so far have given the game positive reviews. IGN praises the game’s story, calling it “a Spidey fan’s dream to play through as comic book pages are brought to life, elegantly walking the tightrope between light humor and heavier themes”.

The New York Times’ Wirecutter praises the game’s setting, gameplay, and story, noting that it is accessible to players of all skill levels. TheGamer praises the game’s story, gameplay, and technical aspects, calling it an overall improvement over the previous game.

It appears that Spider-Man 2 has a great story. The game picks up where the first game left off, with Peter Parker and Miles Morales working together to protect New York City from a new threat. The story is said to be more complex and emotional than the previous game, with memorable characters and high stakes.

The gameplay in Spider-Man 2 is also said to be a significant improvement over the first game. The combat system has been refined, and there are new abilities and gadgets to use. The web-slinging mechanics have also been improved, making it even more fun to traverse the city.

Even the game’s technical aspects are said to be top-notch. The graphics are stunning, the view of New York seems accurate and beautiful, and the game runs smoothly on the PlayStation 5.

Overall, Spider-Man 2 is shaping up to be one of the best games of the year.
