TCHBO. Just another Spidey.

Update: 8/10

More of the same :D



  • New areas don't create new types of gameplay, only more ground to cover


IGN 8/10

it actually needed a radical rethinking is the open world of New York City, which has been made bigger but not better, with an exhausting checklist of mostly repetitious side activities.

Everyone playing now is disappointed by the graphics :D holy shit!!!! What a fucking joke. They've resold the same game 4x now :tom:



these are on ONE PAGE!!!!!!:


Loving it, but I am also a bit disappointed with the visuals. I swear Miles Morales looked way better than this. 


Have to agree on the sentiment about graphics. It looks...good I guess. About the same is MM.


Maybe I'm crazy but distant buildings looked better in MM as well. WTF happened. My guess is that's the cost of being able to run the game at 60 on console (I've only played on Fidelity).


some of the main characters look much worse than before. less detailed, stiffer animations. a clear step back from miles morales. biggest victims: miles, genki & mj. new mj looks like she is from a different console generation compared to 2018 remastered. genki now looks like a ps3-era background character. what shocks me most is the animations downgrade for everyone that is not in a superhero suit.

Played it for 30 minutes before bed. Very fun but yeah I echo some of the comments about the character models, they kinda look weird. Seeing Peter in the first cutscene he was in was jarring.

Played the first couple of hours and I had a blast, the game is great. I just wanted to see if someone else thought the graphics were a bit disappointing and I see I'm not the only one.

same. and i have some pretty big issues with the lod of the city/buildings. everything in mid-long distance looks really low res. not nearly as good as the digital foundry video (playing in 40 fps mode) or the other gameplay i have seen. also a lot worse than 2018 remastered.

It's a shame the character models in cutscenes look off though. Spider Man remastered looked way better in this regard.
I think I need to get my eyes examined. For some reason the character models in cinematics don't look as good as they did in the first game.

Bro you posted it this morning, you're that desperate for replies? You're acting like it's been days. Lmfao

9 - GS
9 - IGN


9's at both IGN and GS. High 80s meta/opencritic 

Review embargo is 4 days before release as well :vince: 

i watched a new video of it.... and i don't know if it's because i've been playing throwbacks to classic jrpgs and soulsborne titles, but i now hate tons of map markers and other screen litter. i understand a game like spiderman needs markers, due to the huge cities, but i feel like my gaming tastes have changed. 

Spiderman ganes are basically ubisoft titles. 

Spiderman games are just lamer Arkham games.

You can turn off the entire HUD if you want to in pretty much all games. :] 


Probably going to get overrated at LBTQspot.
