Thoughts on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

If you’re interested in our in-depth thoughts on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, be sure to read GameSpot’s review by Jordan Ramée. Ramée praises the game, stating, “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 may largely give us more of what we’ve played in Insomniac’s previous Spider-Man games, but that winning formula is still so damn fun that it really doesn’t matter. The story’s exploration of loneliness is fantastic, creating gripping new narratives for the two heroes, Peter and Miles, as well as the two main villains, Kraven and Venom. Spider-Man 2 unites all four characters in a riveting narrative throughline you’ll want to see all the way through and has the gameplay hooks to keep you engaged the whole ride.”
