Action 07 September 2018
An open world action-adventure game developed by Insomniac Games. The player assumes the role of the titular Spider-Man who faces the criminal underworld of New York. The gameplay is based on three pillars. The first one is exploration. The second one is completing various main and side missions. The protagonist is a superhero that can crawl and run across walls and use his web to swing on long distances. The acrobatic abilities of Spider-Man are used during Quick Time Events, special scenes with spectacular actions during which the player must press specific buttons with the right timing. The third pillar of the game is combat – during the dynamic fights the protagonist uses his fists, legs, spider web and elements of the environment – he can for example throw the latter at opponents or he can pin an opponent to a wall using his web. The game features stealth sequences as well – the player might sneak past enemies or eliminate them undetected. The title features high-quality graphics. It looks even better on PlayStation 4 Pro, where it is generated in higher resolution.
Spider-Man 2: The Game
Action 28 June 2004
The second entry in the series of third-person perspective action games about Spider-Man. The plot of the game is based on the movie under the same title. The player assumes the role of Peter Parker, a boy who gained spider superpowers during an accident in a laboratory. His main antagonist is Otto Octavius (in the criminal underworld known as Doctor Octopus), a scientist equipped with mechanical arms controlled by his brainwaves. Depending on the platform, the game has completely different mechanics and was developed by different studios. The main console version offers a fully three-dimensional open world with advanced physics and takes place in a faithfully recreated virtual version of Manhattan. Other versions have simplified mechanics that use features of side-scrolling action games and platform games.
Action 22 September 2005
Another entry in a video game series, developed by Activision, aimed at fans of Spider-Man. Unlike the previous two games, Ultimate Spider-Man is not based on the movie series directed by Sam Raimi. Instead, the game is based entirely on the comic book under the same name, which is a modernized version of Peter Parker's early years as a superhero. During the game we travel through Manhattan and Queens and visit locations known from the comic book, such as the family home, the university or the Daily Bugle building. All of those locations are part of the plot which focuses on eliminating super villains. What is interesting is that we can play as not only Spider-Man but also as his main antagonist, Venom. Both characters have similar abilities, relying on a combat system with spectacular combos and ability to use spider web.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Adventure 17 April 2014
An action adventure sequel to the 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man. Developed by Beenox Inc, a Canadian studio also responsible for such games featuring the Marvel’s superhero as Spider-Man 3: The Game, Spider-Man: Edge of Time and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. The story in the game loosely translates the adventures from the movie directed by Marc Webb into a video game setting. Players, who assume the role of the titular Spider-Man, have to find the assassin who murdered Peter Parker’s uncle - Ben. During the game, the player has to face numerous comic-book villains, including Electro, Kingpin, Black Cat, Green Goblin, and more. The sandbox gameplay mechanics give the players the freedom to explore the virtual version of Manhattan while completing assigned tasks.
Spider-Man 3: The Game
Action 04 May 2007
An action adventure game based on the third Spider-Man movie directed by Sam Raimi. The action is set in the city of New York, recreated with great attention to details. We assume the role of the eponymous superhero, who has to undertake a myriad of various quests. However, the story does not impose any specific path on us, letting us decide the mission order on our own. Spider-Man 3: The Game focuses primarily on combat, where we can perform spectacular strikes with arms and legs as well as use the spider web. Hordes of minor enemies as well as ten famous villains known from the Marvel comic books will stand in our way. An interesting novelty is the fact that in the game we control not only the classic Spider-Man, but also his dark incarnation that came to life as a result of merging with a mysterious space symbiont.
The Amazing Spider-Man
Action 26 June 2012
A third-person action game starring Marvel's most popular super hero, released in about the same time as Mark Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man movie. The game was developed by Beenox, the studio that, with a slightly different line-up, created Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and Spider-Man: The Edge of Time. The events presented in the game take place after the ending of the movie and tell a completely separate story. The plot focuses on biomedical experiments that create hybrids of humans and animals. Peter Parker, disguised as Spider-Man, releases Dr. Connors so he can create a vaccine for the virus that causes the mutation. The mechanics are a little bit similar to the last few Batman games and focus on fighting against groups of enemies and bosses. Unlike the previous Spider-Man games, this one departs from a comic book style and uses more realistic looking graphics.

Spider-Man: Turf Wars
Action 20 November 2018
The third installment in a series of jRPGs developed by Level 5 for Nintendo's 3DS hand-held console. The story is set in an American town of St. Peanutsburg, where the protagonist moves in with his parents. It soon turns out that the place is inhabited by yokai, the friendly creatures from the previous installments, and the main character is the only one who can see them. The protagonist uses his unique ability to benefit the community, making friends among different yokai who can help him. The gameplay mechanics resemble the Pokemon series and the game concentrates mainly on combat, which is quite unusual here. In a duel, two teams of three yokai each are facing one another. To attack the player is required to draw symbols on the touchscreen of the console. Similar mechanics apply to exploration as well, as the player participates in a series of different mini-games during a journey.

Spider-Man: Homecoming VR
Action 30 June 2017
Spider-Man: Homecoming VR is an arcade action game developed by Sony Pictures Virtual Reality as a part of the promotional campaign for the Spider-Man: Homecoming film. We play as the titular super hero. Our job is to test the new suit and new web slingers that were given to us by Stark Industries. The fact that Vulture breaths down our back only complicates things. In the end we will be forced to face him. The game is made of a series of challenges that test our aim, reflexes, and observation skills. We will be using all kinds of spider web while doing them. We use it to shoot at static and moving objects, move and throw environmental objects, and travel across the roofs of New York’s skyscrapers. We observe the action from a first-person perspective. Spider-Man: Homecoming VR is a virtual reality game that requires VR goggles to be playable and is free-to-play.
