With great power comes great responsibility, and now, both, the power and responsibility are yours as this is your chance to be one of the most acclaimed Marvel Comics superheroes around - Spider-Man. A single-player action-adventure video game for the PS4 console, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is based on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 film. Developed by Beenox and published by Activision, this game follows Spider-Man as he looks for the person who killed his beloved Uncle Ben. This game features some of the most renowned villains from the Spider-Man universe, such as; Kraven the Hunter, Kingpin, Electro, Green Goblin, Carnage and Black Cat.
Having received a rating of 16 from PEGI, The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s gameplay has evolved considerably since its previous installment - The Amazing Spider-Man. This game is set in the city of Manhattan and showcases a marvelous open world environment where one can swing from building to building by using Spidey’s webs. The web-swinging mechanic has been enhanced; one can only swing along the course of the city if his web shot attaches itself to something material, unlike the previous game where one could just keep swinging even if there was nothing for the web to attach itself to. A new Hero or Menace system rewards the player with a good public image if he or she stops crimes, if he doesn’t he is seen as a villain by the masses. There are numerous costumes that can be equipped by the web-slinger, each of which gives a unique ability and can be upgraded. The player also gets to play as Peter Parker in a few missions, where one has to snoop around and do some detective work. An array of skills and combos have been given to Spider-Man in this game, and one cannot approach every villain with the same set of moves as they will fail. With loads of stealth-based attacks, unique web attacks and strategies that can be used, this game is a comic lover’s heaven
