It’s a travesty that each subsequent Spider-man game undid the great work of the web-slinging from Spider-man 2. It’s even more amazing to me that reviewers were generally positive of subsequent Spider-man games too. They should have been TORN to shreds for abandoning that idea. Spider-man 2 was easily the best superhero game made until Batman Arkham Asylum came along – entirely because of the web-slinging mechanic (the combat was pretty shitty, to be honest.)
Now the guy responsible for that mechanic is back – WITH that mechanic! I will support him, oh yes – although I am a little bummed it’s not attached to the classic arachnid’s IP. Still, it looks like it will be lots of fun regardless.
