THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 (WIIU/PS4/XONE/PS3/X360/3DS/PC) OUT NOW

Spider-man games are a frustrating experience – historically taking one step forwards then two steps back.

This latest web-slinging experience frustratingly fits into the latter category as the right moves made a few years back in Shattered Dimensions haven’t stuck – despite this having the best swinging mechanics ever seen in a Spidey game, and some great production values.

But sadly when Peter Parker’s alter-ego is on the ground it really offers little that is amazing, with combat that simply doesn’t have the same bite as Batman’s Arkham series – and all the hallmarks of a rushed movie tie-in.

Rating: 2/5
