Spider-Man has always been my favorite super hero. The costume Peter Parker made is pretty cool, he is intelligent and has incredible strength. Spider-Man even gets to climb up walls and web-swing from buildings! Who doesn’t want to do that? Since no one actually can, video games are as close as we can get to becoming the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. There have been numerous games starring my favorite hero, and we all know they are not always the greatest games ever made. The thing that makes this game stand out from the rest is the mainly a unique story, the ability to change between the black and red suits, good web-swinging mechanics and a giant open world that is your playground. I’m sure you are thinking, “Boy, that sounds great Jack, is there actually anything wrong with this game, because it sounds fantastic?” Well yeah, there is usually something wrong with every game. Read on, dear reader, to find out if Spider-Man’s legacy lives or dies through this game.
