One of the absolute biggest shockers of E3 last year was the announcement that the next Spider-Man video game would be exclusive to Sony and only on the PlayStation 4. The footage looked great and when it was revealed that Insomniac Games was the studio behind it, excitement went through the roof!
Well one year later, we get ourselves some gameplay footage during Sony’s presentation of this year’s E3 and well, what else can I say but HOLY CRAP!
That. That right there my friends is how you should make a full on Spider-Man game.
Where do we even start? The combat looks so smooth and had a great fluidity to it! You also web up all the enemies in creative ways be it up close of from a distance. The webbing is also useful in combat both hand-to-hand and environmental! Also the camera movement is insane, but for a character like Spider-Man, it kind of needs it to be!
Then there is the web swinging, the most important aspect of ANY Spider-Man game and oh boy, does that just look smooth! This also gains bonus points for having Mister Negative as the villain here for this section and revealing that Spider-Man is having to work with Wilson Fisk AKA Kingpin. Oh yeah and there is the cameo at the end of Miles Morales! WHAT?!
If Hobgoblin is in this game, I will just hand Sony my whole wallet for a copy of it on the spot.
Spider-Man was the closer of Sony’s presentation for this year, but it clearly was the winner of the whole event.
This game will excite players and comic book fans alike when it comes out sometime next year!
