The Amazing Spider-Man makes you feel like Spider-Man, but the world built around him is shallow and unsatisfying.
Spider-Man themed games have been around for decades. From the 2-D beat em ups, to the more recent open world and linear adventures. In the movie world, Spider-Man has always been a big hit. From Peter Parker’s original film debut in 2002, movie based Spider-Man video games have been hand in hand. After the cancellation of Spiderman 4, Sony had decided to reboot the franchise for 2012. With the return of Spider-Man to the big screen, comes the return of Spider-Man on your home console.
Beenox games (Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man: Edge of Time) has decided to do something a bit different when it comes to a game based off a movie. The Amazing Spiderman is indeed a movie based game, but instead of taking place during the same timeline as the movie, players will see what happened after the film has ended.
