Update: I started and played 5 hours of Spider-Man with my family today. This game isn’t very good at all. It feels like it’s in-Line with the bad checklist open world trends of the past decade while adding a wise ass protagonist to make hacking towers all the more annoying.
I JUST criticized RDR2 for characters yapping in my ear about a whole lot of NOTHING. Well, RDR2 is waaaaay more tasteful than this game. The game told me I had to “kill time” while I wait for Dr Octavious to call me. So great I have to swing around and do filler tower missions. In the middle of it, Jonah Jameson yells about a bunch of nonsense in your ear, then it’s followed by Mary Jane who says she won’t quit her pursuit of suspicious museum nonsense, then Aunt May immediately calls me to ask if everything is ok. This unnecessary dialogue while I swing around New York is soooo tired 5 hours into the game. It adds nothing.
This game is just a constant stream of information that adds nothing to my enjoyment. Why would I need or want to collect backpacks to get better moves or armour or whatever all the while characters talk in my ear and I get random crime alerts. This is overwhelming in the worst way.
Towers to hack
Plain as day upgrade trees
Every line of dialogue is in a constant state of sarcasm or attempt of humour
No clue how this game made #3
Unfair for people to shit on Arkham Knight when the combat in that game is more fun, the writing is better, the atmosphere, score, general audio, and controls are far and beyond superior.
