Advantages: Fantastic Gameplay, Great Storyline, Beautiful Art Design
Disadvantages: Some Repetitive Tasks
The Plot of this game is a tricky one, on the surface it is very generic, ordinary guy gets caught in an explosion and gains superpowers and then has issues including a blurring of the lines between good and evil. However as the story progresses you realise that the games writers have actually written a pretty deep and engaging story which keeps you hooked throughout whilst still providing the much needed freedom to explore the city. Your main purpose in the game is to find out who gave you the package which caused the explosion, along the way the main character also has to deal with his whining girlfriend and power hungry best mate along with all the other needy citizens of the city. Some actions will alter aspects of the storyline depending if you chose to perform good or bad actions during pivotal moments within the game which are clearly highlighted.
The free running elements of this game are so much fun it doesn't even need a storyline, its one of those games like GTA where you forget there are actually things to do because you're having so much fun exploring. Running up walls and sliding across power lines with no consequences of falling and hurting your character feels great and I feel the controls work seamlessly and only add to the experience. This is the game that every Spiderman game I ever bought should have been, they had the character but never had the amazing mechanics of this game which just feels really exciting to play. There's always plenty of choices of what to do next and although some tasks are a little repetitive they are way more varied than Assassins Creed. Many of the missions affect the main characters morality and as he moves up and down the morality scale he gains new abilities to use, they have paced the progression and acquisition of new abilities very well so you aren't overwhelmed with techniques to remember and it feels the character is really getting stronger throughout the game. The difficulty of the game is very well balanced and I found some parts very challenging even on a normal difficulty, but I don't think it is possible to enter a situation where you are too weak to progress.
Everything about the graphical style of this game looks great, it has an almost comic book style which is really obvious in the menus and cut scenes which look beautiful but also during the gameplay. All of the art design adds so much to the games atmosphere and the developers have clearly worked very hard, you can tell it is a quality game, not something which was released quickly on the cheap. The voice acting of a high quality, it's like watching a film during cutscenes and it really draws you in to the story, there is also some great but subtle musical choices which only add to the overall experience.
Summary: A Great Fun Game To Play, With A Good Storyline
