Marvel's Spider-Man video gameI have played a lot of Spider-Man games over the years. My experience with them goes back to the 90s SNES game Maximum Carnage. That game was great and then as the games began using the open world concept to sling around I played the heck out of them. However, its been awhile since I was really super excited for a Spider-Man game or really any superhero game. A few things Marvel's Spider-Man game that really stood out to me. the game has story that feels like a true comic story in a video game. Normally videogames have you bounce around in various stories, and showcase a variety of villains but nothing has emotional or personal stories that make up so much of the comics. Well this game boasts multiple comic writers who know a lot about Spider-Man including Dan Slott and Christos Gage. The story selected for the game to tell is the Brand New Day story that introduced Mister Negative and the FEAST program. That story is very modern and feels very fresh. While I enjoy beating up Spider-Man's classic villains as much as the next guy a game that focuses primarily on one of the new villains is very intriguing. The Spider-Man featured here also is a bit older and it feels like that allows to game to emotionally mature along with the character.
The game also looks flat out beautiful but hey you have to come to expect that in Spider-Man games.
