I got Spider-Man for PS4 as a birthday gift, and man lemme tell you.
It took everything good about the Batman Arkham series (Inarguably the best superhero videogame franchise up to this point), and fine-tuned it to near perfection.
My only gripe is that it doesn't do anything new, per say. It's the same sandbox, super high quality graphics, endless procedurally generated pop-up missions, story-driven game we've seen a million times this generation. However, it takes the most mundane part of an open-world game and makes it the primary source of enjoyment.
Traversal in Spider-man is perfect. The physics-based web swinging is the single most satisfying movement in a game I've ever played.
Outside of that, the combat is challenging but totally fair. You have to think and be on guard, there's a ton of different enemy types with their own strengths and weaknesses, but you can use any number and combination of skills and gadgets to take them out. It's got the most freedom of any free-flowing combat style game I've ever seen.
The story is actually amazing too, for a superhero videogame. Thankfully it's not an origin story, the whole in-game world knows Spidey and there's a history there, making reference to commonly known events in-universe that any Spider-man fan would know about. It tells a compelling story that has a lot of weight to it. Peter Parker is so likeable in this game, it's my favourite incarnation of the character to date.
The writing is solid, there's no typical superhero story cringe, it's an excellent game.
It's also polished to perfection. So many tiny details that make the world believable, and really show a lot of love and passion that went into it. Just one example, Spider-man's passive dialogue lines are all recorded twice, so whenever a conversation or phone call is happening during gameplay, it either plays the calm and normal voice lines (when you're not doing anything in particular), or faster, frantic and out-of-breath lines for when you're in combat or web-swinging.
They understand what superhero fans want, too. There's the perfect amount of fanservice to keep you interested and give you that elation of seeing and hearing things you love, without it feeling like mindelss pandering. There's like 30 something costumes in the game that you unlock progressively as you level up, and it really incentivises you to do it, it's really worth it. Each suit is super unique, and they even each have different bonus powers that change combat or traversal.
All in all, it's an Amazing Spider-man (pun intended) game.
