Following on from my thoughts on Assassins Creed Origins I decided what better game to follow up with than one that I have had on pre-order since last year! The brand new, PS4 exclusive spider-man! I am so excited for this game, I am a huge spider-man fan, a new game for our favourite web slinger is something that I believe is long overdue!! Thank god it looks amazing so far because I have to say that I am not impressed by the trailers for Spider-man Homecoming, to me it looks like the worst Spider-man film so far, but that is a post for my other blog.Getting back to the point the new Spider-man game looks like the game we have all been waiting for since the triumph that was Spider-man 2 on PS2 and Xbox. Here are my reasons for being excited for Spideys latest video game outing.
1. HE LOOKS AWESOME
This new costume that the web slinger is wearing looks amazing, I love the design especially the big white spider covering a good portion of his costume. I think we can all agree that part of the appeal to any super hero is the costume in which they fight crime in, and spidey has had his fair share of costumes over the years, some which are brilliant, others needed a little bit of work. Thankfully the new costume definitely falls in the brilliant category.
2. THE MAP IS HUGE
The whole of Manhattan is our playground, the map is by far the biggest that we will have ever been able to swing through and that alone is enough for me to think yes I need this game and I need it now. Sod the story I’ll be happy to just keep swinging around the neighbourhood fighting whatever crimes there are. I’m also assuming that there will be some time challenges around the city so I’ll be pretty occupied. I am going to be one busy spidey!!
3. THE COMBAT LOOKS GREAT!
Something that we all judge when it comes to this sort of game, if the combat isn’t fun or it is just too challenging then we would all get fed up with a super hero game pretty quickly. The different abilities that we will be able to unlock as the game goes on are something else to look forward to in terms of combat, it means that there will always be new moves to add to your arsenal. I have always enjoyed the combat in Spiderman games, there is something about hanging a bad guy from lamppost that just does it for me.
4. IT’S SPIDERMAN!!!!
5. PETERS AGE
The origins of Spiderman has been done to death! Finally we have something new, all we know is that instead of being a teenage student, Pete is going to be 23 years old in this game, that means that we aren’t playing as a new Spidey who is just finding his feet. We are going to be playing as a Spidey who has been doing this stuff for years!
The gameplay footage that has been shown has demonstrated just how cool it is going to feel to be Spiderman again which as I stated before is crucial considering I’m pretty sure Homecoming is going to be god awful. Are you interested in the new Spiderman game? Let me know cause I sure as hell can’t wait to be swinging through the concrete jungle.
