- Versione PS5 -
After I had the chance, thank you Sony Interactive Entertainment And Sleepless gamesWhen we previewed this title, we were overwhelmed with a flood of emotions as we played it: joy, ecstasy, excitement, anger, sadness, anger again, fear, happiness and fun. Spiderman 2 It is this and much more: a masterpiece that can be appreciated by all and deserves the success it has achieved. Here is our review.
From great powers…
Spiderman 2 takes us back to the end of Spider-Man: Miles Moraleswith a more experienced Miles under the guidance of his mentor, Peter Parker. The title starts off by getting us used to these two characters, with a Peter Parker who is more agile in combat and a Miles who is Powers Poison, powerful but less fluid than its counterpart. In addition, Peter Parker has cutting-edge technological tools like himself 4 spider legs additionally.
From the first stages of the game you can notice improvements compared to the previous chapter, with an even more satisfying, reckless and fast swing through the streets of New York: the WingsuitIn particular, it allows you to glide with agility over long distances and move even faster by taking advantage of its advantages Air currents, also useful for shooting at vertical height. Finally, if we follow a circular air route, the wind flow will make us increase our speed to the maximum.
Why evade when you can deviate?
The improvements also come to the combat system: theDeviated“is an interesting new game mechanic that, when executed with perfect timing, allows you to interrupt the enemy’s attack and counterattack, causing even more damage than normal attacks. Deviation is not a superfluous mechanic, on the contrary, it must be learned and mastered well in order to be able to cope with the final phases of the game with confidence.
The Deviata might be difficult for some, as in our case, but Sleepless games caters to its players by offering the opportunity to add options to the game increase the Deviata time window. Additionally, the old dodge is also present, which, when executed with perfect timing, stuns the dodged enemy and further fills the focus bar.
Barrels and gadgets in all colors and flavors
Combat is simplified and made more intuitive with the introduction of CapabilitySpecial moves we can do Burden, Approach or lift Enemies that inflict a huge damage. The abilities can be used by both Peter and Miles: Peter has Abilities related to his spider limbs (and then something else…), while Miles’s are linked to his Venom’s bioelectric powers. With a slight cooling downwe can use them unlimited during combat, without the use of focal points or consumables of any kind.
On the other hand, however, they return Spider gadget4 special tools that, like skills, They are not consumable and require a recharge time. The combination of tools and skills makes gameplay more enjoyable, provides variety in movements and fighting styles, and allows gaining space and time during battles.
A world that evolves with us
But where does all this gameplay take place? new York comes into play in a disturbing way, with a map twice the size of the previous title. The open world is more alive than ever and full of new side missions, very similar to its predecessor (caves, collectibles, combat challenges, etc.) but with some variety thanks to the title’s narrative structure.
Also thanks to their distribution throughout the game, The side quests never seem to be too numerous or overwhelming, which fits perfectly into the experience. The Collectibleson the other hand there are very few and the unlockable skills They display them on the minimap so everyone can easily complete collectibles. However, the map is not just a means of traversal to carry out activities: the map is a real panorama that changes as the story progresses, with details depicting the enemy invading it.
Spiderman 2 takes us into the minds of Peter and Miles, two boys blinded by responsibility and overwhelmed by reality. Thank you for the great story Sleepless games, Spiderman 2 manages to highlight and emphasize a solid basic structure, showing us both the emotions and stories of two great heroes and the thoughts, fears and insecurities of two ordinary people.
We would also like to point out that the real star of this trip is Miles, a masked boy who, after a thousand successes and misfortunes, truly understands what it means to be Spiderman: Life leads him to the realization that man’s greatest enemy is often himself and that sometimes even a Spiderman needs a Spiderman, both inside and out.
Spiderman 2 is a decorated masterpiece in every way: vibrant, colorful and contextualized setting; Gameplay as spectacular as it is entertaining; A good selection of elements that allow you to break the pace of the game and story and let you experience the rainbow of emotions of a real Spider-Man. Spiderman 2 is a must-play and must-listen title.
