VIDEO GAMES: New Details/Stills From THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Tie-In Games
GameInformer recently got a chance to sit down with Beenox and demo the upcoming video game tie-in for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Come check out what they learned and take a look at several new stills from both the console and mobile versions of the game.
Beenox has been hard at work on the new tie-in video game for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and with the game set to release in a little over a month, they've shared a few new details about what to expect with GameInformer. The entire game is said to be a complete revamp when compared to their previous titles.
One of the major improvements they've made will be web swinging around the city. Unlike the previous games where web swinging is accomplished by holding down a specific button, this time the player will need to alternate between the left and right triggers to navigate Spidey around the city. Holding a trigger to the left or right will move you into that direction. To increase speed, the player will need to alternate between left and right web shots at a quicker pace. Timing will be key.
In a brief description of the demo, it was confirmed that Peter Parker, as a civilian, will be a playable character on several missions. "He’s there to propel the plot along; when it’s time to fight or save people, he’ll need to don his costume." The scene that was described was Peter running into Harry Osborn at a private fund-raising event hosted by the Fisks.
The biggest addition to the game will be the new "Hero or Menace" system. The system is set to reward players for stopping crimes or punishing them for failing or not responding. When missions are successfully completed, Spider-Man's bravery and acumen will be recognized through special segments on the Bugle Channel, hosted by Whitney Chang. However, if missions are failed, J. Jonah Jameson himself will take over the airwaves to tear Spidey a new one. As players accumulate more acclaim or notoriety, they'll be treated differently by civilians. Be a hero and they'll clap and cheer for you endlessly, but be seen as a menace, and they'll run away screaming in terror. In addition to that, Oscorp drones will also be sent after you and your stats will be penalized.

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
