In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, players once again assume the role of the iconic Super Hero in a unique side-story inspired by the feature film but set in its own continuity. Throughout his journey, Spider-Man will encounter a number of new foes as well as some old friends, as he confronts a new threat to his beloved city. The narrative will give Peter Parker, Spider-Man’s nerdy photojournalist persona, a greater role in the spotlight, as he investigates the complicated motivations and unique personalities behind the menagerie of Marvel menaces threatening Manhattan.

As Spidey, players will be able to free-roam through a greatly-enhanced Manhattan cityscape, one set to offer livelier, more engaging opportunities with which to put his sensational skills to use. Central to the expansive depth and detail being poured into The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is the new “Hero or Menace” system, which incentivizes Super Hero behavior by rewarding the web-slinger’s crime-fighting efforts, and adds consequences for letting criminality fester. Spider-Man’s personal brand of web-swinging and up-close-and-personal combat will see a variety of new features as well.




The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game is set to be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and 3DS on April 29th, 2014.

Looks alright I guess!!!
EpitomeofAwesome - 3/21/2014, 9:03 AM
Looks pretty cool
ProfessorX - 3/21/2014, 9:06 AM
The fighting looks terrible.
Comedian03 - 3/21/2014, 9:06 AM
Honestly, it looks like they took a look of ques from the Arkham series, which isn't a bad thing by any means.
KidGoku - 3/21/2014, 9:07 AM
Graphics look pretty good! So does the gameplay.... okay just cause it's Spider-Man i'll probably end up getting it. need games for my PS4. Getting InFamous today!!
MrNiklander - 3/21/2014, 9:10 AM

and i'll definitely use Miles Morale's suit, my personal favorite.
JJJameson - 3/21/2014, 9:11 AM
This actually looks pretty awesome, both the gameplay and the graphics. That's it, I'm preordering this.
Spideyshawn - 3/21/2014, 9:14 AM
I just want a great spider-man game hopefully this is it.
Batmaniac - 3/21/2014, 9:17 AM
The trailers did this game no favours because this actually looks really good. I think Beenox might have done it this time.

I like the sound of the hero/menace system, as well as the fact it's open-ended with infinite crimes, so I'll be picking this up. Oh and the graphics look a lot better in the gameplay than they did the trailer.
Luminus - 3/21/2014, 9:18 AM
Arkham: Spider. Not that that's a bad thing. But, FINALLY, someone made extra suits that actually do what they're supposed to do and isn't just window dressing. We've only had this with a Venom suit, but that was built into the story, so it doesn't count.
JJJameson - 3/21/2014, 9:22 AM
I believe the trailer used both current and next gen footage with not finished graphics, hopefully they will be releasing a trailer with gameplay soon. But I agree with Batmaniac, the premise of this game looks excellent, the gameplay seems something that could make this one of the best Spidey games yet and I'm just itching to play as Spidey and Batman in a next gen console.

I'm actually preordering these two games (The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Arkham Knight BEFORE I even own a PS4, but I'll be buying one next month, before the release of the TASM2 game.
Darktower - 3/21/2014, 9:27 AM
Graphic looks so cheap... Batman Arkham asylum has better graphic than this and it was release 5yr ago..
plus the story is obviously lame ...
soooo....
Doopie - 3/21/2014, 9:30 AM
hmmm not sold on this
theowl - 3/21/2014, 9:34 AM
looks great!
ibravosp5 - 3/21/2014, 9:35 AM
Wow, I can't believe the graphics looks more polished this time! It looks good. I really hope there are a variety of crimes this time (stop bank robbers, save person falling from building, better car chases, etc) and please let the crimes be unlimited this time! I was dissapointed with the amazing spiderman game for the crimes not being unlimited.
AstonishingArachnid - 3/21/2014, 10:00 AM
Awesome combat? Check. Web swinging like Spiderman 2? Check. I dont understand why some people are saying this game is shit. The story I think is very interesting. Being mentored by Kraven, fighting organized crime ie Kingpin. A morality system. Costumes that give you perks. Infinite crime fighting capabilities and a more expansive, detailed Manhattan. Beenox basicaly adressed all my complaints about the last game. So I think peopela re either hating cause the graphics aren't OMFG SO REALISTIC. Or they're hating for the sake of hating.
TheRationalNerd - 3/21/2014, 10:02 AM
Can we please get an

-X-Men Legends 3
-Punisher
-Blade

Video game??
Magus - 3/21/2014, 10:02 AM
WEBS STICK TO BUIDINGS LIKE SPIDER-MAN 2?!?!?!

I'm sold. Off to pre-order.
AstonishingArachnid - 3/21/2014, 10:03 AM
@AnnoDomini Have you played TASM game? If you like Arkham combat its hypocritical to dislike Spideys combat in these games as its an exact copy except with more acrobatics and super strength.
Lenbert - 3/21/2014, 10:04 AM
So the first game you used 1 button to web swing and you were basically swinging off clouds,
and now this game you have a two button mechanic which you actually swing off the buildings. .....
...so it took you're studio making a second game to realise something that was done 10 years ago in spiderman 2... what [frick]ing idiots. To have a good spider game just make a next Gen spidey 2 game it's still the best spiderman game.
Luminus - 3/21/2014, 10:12 AM
@AnnoDomin: You know, it's funny you mention the "pulled punches" issue, because I was thinking about that while watching the video. Why is a Brute any match Spider-Man? Like, why do you have to use a special move on him, if it's just some muscle guy? Spidey should still be able to take him out with one hit. In fact, why does it take more than 1 hit to take out ANY of those street thugs? It might as well be Superman fighting street crime for all the good any resistance from them is going to do to Spidey.
Batmaniac - 3/21/2014, 10:16 AM
I hope there is a Superior Spider-Man costume.
Luminus - 3/21/2014, 10:20 AM
I hope the Captain Universe costume actually gives you cosmic powers.
Luminus - 3/21/2014, 10:25 AM
^Right. I thought the same thing about that speedy thug. Maybe she's a mutant.
ThrotTheUnclean - 3/21/2014, 10:28 AM
Are we sure this is video game footage? It looks just like the movie trailer.
Chloefornication - 3/21/2014, 10:30 AM
Not sold on this. The last game was lame as hell. I miss the good old spider-man games.
BasedThanos - 3/21/2014, 10:32 AM
Spider-Man shouldn't have so much trouble fighting non-superhuman street thugs. Always a big detraction for me in any Spider-Man video game. Its so stupid a regular human COULD NOT block a punch from Spider-Man, or get punched by him and get back up.
thewolfx - 3/21/2014, 10:37 AM
Ok things im glad about



The swinging... i can finally attach to buildings and the web sling shot makes a return .. nice!


Suits yes give me lots of suits with different abilites

The combat looks fun and slightly improveds .. i do like you can use stealth anywere now


And finally beenox listened we can play after the game is over my biggest problem next to the horrible swinging in the last game.



What i dont like...


The graphics are good but could be wayy better

The enemies dont seem tomake sense as how do these normal himans break through walls and have super speed ? Wtf
BasedThanos - 3/21/2014, 10:38 AM
Yeah and needing a "special move" to defeat the brute type is laughable. Spider-Man could pick that guy up and toss him around like a rag-doll. Spider-Man is hilariously depowered in video games.
BasedThanos - 3/21/2014, 10:42 AM
And WTF is up with the super speed chick?? The game itself sounds pretty good and better than the first game though.
Missy - 3/21/2014, 10:57 AM
Gameplay looks good. I don't care that much about graphics, as long as the gameplay is fun I'm ok.
Ramiel - 3/21/2014, 11:12 AM
Game looks good. I may just get it.
TheDemonsHead - 3/21/2014, 11:22 AM
Shit game.

The first was diareaha
KeefNCookies - 3/21/2014, 11:44 AM
I like the idea of being able to upgrade each suit individually and the concept of each suit making a difference in gameplay.

Still doubt I'll get this, but if it drops to 20$, I might take a crack at it.
Odin - 3/21/2014, 12:36 PM
Miles Morales suit, YES!!
plan99fromouterspace - 3/21/2014, 12:41 PM
Ever since the Spider-man 2 video game, all I've ever wanted was a Next Gen upgrade version of that awesome open world accomplishment. This video looks like maybe they've done it and then some but I wouldn't hold my breath. I'll hold off on some reviews before buying this one.
patrat18 - 3/21/2014, 2:06 PM
Eh i'll buy it when the price drops to 20 bucks.
Jer3miah - 3/21/2014, 4:27 PM
Won't be buying it. The only proper successor to the Ps1 Spidey titles aside from Spidey 2 was Web Of Shadows. Everything else (from Beenox) has been sh*t.
