The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is an action adventure game featuring one of the most famous Marvel superheroes. The game has been developed by Beenox, a Canadian studio responsible for the previous installment of The Amazing Spider-Man series.
Story-wise, the game continues the events from 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man, and is not an adaptation of the movie starring Andrew Garfield. Both projects share certain threads and scenes; however, they generally follow different paths resulting in the game’s fresh script offering something new for those who have seen the movie on the big screen.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 features an upgraded version of the mechanics implemented in the previous installment. The creators spent a lot of time developing the open world structure players get to explore while swinging on spider-webs, which, thanks to the upgraded system, cling to the buildings. Another crucial element of the game, apart from the exploration, is combat. The main protagonist is now able to use a variety of new hits and has been equipped with new webbing supplies.
Developers did much more than just upgrade the elements from the previous game. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 delivers many novelties, among which one can find the system that tracks player’s actions – good deeds, worthy of a real superhero are being rewarded (including catching the criminals, rescuing the innocent civilians, etc.), while ignoring villains or people in distress has negative consequences for the player. Another improvement is noticeable in the sections of the game where one controls Peter Parker without his Spider-Man suit – now these sections deliver balanced missions building on investigations.
