The highly anticipated release of Sony’s ‘Spider-Man 2’ video game for the PS5 has been an exciting topic among gamers and video game critics. The game is a sequel to the beloved PS4 ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ game from 2018, and so far, it certainly lives up to expectations. Read on below to learn what gamers and critics are saying about the new ‘Spider-Man 2’ game.

Overall Reception and Expectations

‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ from 2018 was one of the most highly rated games for the PS4. On review aggregator website Metacritic the first game received an 87 out of 100 rating from critics and an 8.7 out of 10 rating from users.

‘Spider-Man 2’ has performed very well in review numbers so far and has even managed to outperform the first game. On Metacritic, the game currently has an average critic rating of 90 out of 100 and an average user score of 9.1 out of 10. The game has also been listed as a Metacritic ‘Must-Play’ game.

Impressive Graphics and Visuals

What do fans and critics love about ‘Spider-Man 2’? One aspect of the new game that has received widespread praise is its impressive graphics. The game takes full advantage of the power of the next-gen console it’s available on, and it has been called the PS5’s definitive technical showpiece.

The PS5 is equipped with an AMD Radeon RDNA 2 graphics processing unit (GPU) and can display games at 4K resolution and up to 120 frames per second. These are numbers that have only been available for PC gamers in the past, so it’s incredible to see how powerful the console is. ‘Spider-Man 2’ is the perfect game to show off the PS5’s graphical capabilities, and players have expressed amazement at how lifelike it feels to swing through New York City as Spider-Man.

Engaging Gameplay Mechanics

Another aspect that gamers have loved is the engaging gameplay mechanics in ‘Spider-Man 2.’ The game offers similar gameplay to the first installment in the series, allowing players to swing from the buildings of New York City, fight off street thugs and classic Spider-Man villains, and unlock a variety of new abilities to enhance gameplay.

The web swinging mechanic alone gave the last ‘Spider-Man’ PlayStation game one of the most dynamic movement systems out there, but the new game has added ‘web wings,’ a wingsuit that can be deployed while you’re swinging through the air which adds yet another enjoyable way to travel.

Two Character Options?

One major feature that players and critics have both loved about the new ‘Spider-Man’ game is the ability it gives you to play as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales. Fan-favorite Miles Morales is the protagonist of the 2018 animated film ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ and this year’s sequel ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.’

Players are able to switch between Parker and Morales by swiping left on the touchpad and holding the square button. Playing as Parker will give the player more abilities for fighting single targets, while Morales is better for fighting large groups of weaker enemies.
