What is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 about?
What started out as the search for a killer very quickly becomes something so much more. In a unique story alongside the events of the second film, Spider-Man discovers hes not the only one tracking down Manhattans criminals. The underworld has been turned upside down with a one man campaign of violence and murder that is has captured the city in an iron grip of fear. Villains from the film as well as fan-favorite, classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, freeroaming, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Mans reckoning.
The game is enjoyable, entertaining and its Open-world plays well. It’s great to see, that you can actually follow missions that have nothing to do with the main story. You are able to move around in a lot of different ways, do a lot of moves and use a myriad of gadgets - everything a Spider-Man and Marvel fan can dream of. Historically, everything plays far before the very first Spider-Man movie with Tobey Maguire. While the game features well-known characters, there are also some unknown ones. In any case, a new story is told and various Spider-Man universes are mixed - the new Spider-Man also makes an appearance. Considering the game mechanics, if you know Infamous Second Son and its sequel and like it, you will enjoy this game, as they both use the same game engine. Map, hub, skills, battles, missions and side tasks are almost identical. An absolute must for fans! I have spent about 15 hours playing this game at the moment, and have almost only completed the main missions. I think I am at nearly half of the game’s progress, which means that the main story will be finished at around 75%. It is definitely worth it!
