Spider Man PS4 Reviews

We've got the Spider Man reviews from key publications for you just below. .

  • Spider Man PS4 Review - USgamer - 4.5/5 - "Insomniac Games takes Marvel's most popular character for a spin and the results are fantastic. The developer establishes its own Spider-Man with a unique supporting cast and a beautiful recreation of New York to play around in."
  • Spider Man PS4 Review - IGN - 8.7/10 - "I wanted Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 to make me feel like Spider-Man: To sail between the highrises of New York City, to nimbly web up hordes of enemies, and tussle with familiar, animal-themed villains. Insomniac Games’ first foray into the world of Marvel handily delivers on all of that."
  • Spider Man PS4 Review - GameSpot - 9/10 - "The feeling of embodying Spidey and using his abilities is astonishing, and the time spent on exploring its major characters help make its story feel heartfelt, despite superhero bombast."
  • Spider Man PS4 Review - Eurogamer - Recommended - "And it's a reminder, then, that while it seems that games of a certain type - and a certain budget - are all converging these days, that all games are in a hurry to become the same game with the same tricks and the same hooks, there are still places, even within the most risk-averse of designs, for genuine character to bloom. Go get 'em, tiger."
  • Spider Man PS4 Review - VG247 - No Score - "Spider-Man is at its best when you’re mid-flow. It’s a game that can capture that awesome trance-like feeling where you’re so in tune with the rhythm of swinging and hopping between buildings or dodging, countering and attacking enemies that everything else melts away."
  • Spider Man PS4 Review - VideoGamer.com - 8/10 - "While some of the antiquated trappings of open world games from years gone-by are present, Spider-Man manages to remain a delight through great acting performances, a compelling story, terrific combat, and joyous swinging."
  • Spider Man PS4 Review - Polygon - No Score - "The action sequences are breathless and memorable, but after the game’s final act I was left wanting more. Just like a summer blockbuster, Spider-Man leaves too much waiting in the wings for its obviously upcoming sequel."

So there you have it. Spider Man on PS4 seems to be a big success. You can play it yourself on its release on September 7. For more info check out our Spider-Man PS4 Guide.

His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
