I used to work in a Game store, so I'm used to playing plenty of games to recommend to other people, but since leaving I've still picked up games here and there, the most recent being Spec Ops: The Line and The Amazing Spider-Man, the latter being played a lot more because of how good it is! I've always been a fan of Spidey, however I've never really liked any of the games, apart from maybe Spider-Man 2. People complain that this game is too hard, it isn't, it has difficulty settings for a reason, don't be ashamed of playing it on easy as games are made to be enjoyed by people, not for them to destroy the control in rage because they can't get past a certain level. After reading many reviews I can assure you that this game is nowhere near as hard as people are saying it is. Combat is a lot like the recent Arkham games, as soon as your spidey sense flashes above your head, press triangle and you'll counter, I personally find this system a lot better seeing as constant tapping of a button gets super annoying and boring after a while. The free roam around the city is rather fun, and plenty of events pop up to keep you entertained. The whole game seems like you're just pressing buttons that pop up on your screen, which makes you feel distant from total control over the game, but no too distant for me to put the game down on marks. It's ranked #1 on most game sites for a reason, because its as amazing as the title suggests!
