Spider-Man 2 feels like it’s right in the centre of Sony’s blockbuster sequel design philosophy. Where Horizon Forbidden West did the same thing but bigger, The Last of Us Part 2 elevated itself technologically, narratively, and most importantly, ambitiously.

Insomniac Games has done it again. Although in effect, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 starts from the already very well-built base of its two predecessors, the way in which it expands things in all departments makes it a must-see game for anyone looking for a great story, amazing graphics, a polished, deep and very fun combat system, as well as an open world that, although systematic, always has something to offer to accentuate the excellent game mechanics that are being presented to us, this with a rhythm that makes letting go of control really difficult.

There are hints of greater thematic aspirations within Spider-Man 2. Questions about mass incarceration, recidivism, and reintegration into society for formerly incarcerated people; worries about the surveillance state and what we give up when we engage with modern technology.

The Verge - TBD

The Verge – TBD

All of these changes amount to an experience that is subtly improved but, really, not drastically different from its predecessors. Spider-Man 2 mostly knows what worked with the originals, and it enhances that by adding more: more characters, more villains, more ways to get around, and a story with more edge and more twists. It doesn’t fix the sidequest problem, but everything else is better.


In our point of view, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a must-have for any PlayStation 5 user. It’s a natural evolution and improvement in every aspect over its predecessors, with a captivating narrative, unrivaled spectacle, and excellent gameplay.

Insomniac Games has clearly poured their heart and soul into this game, and it shows. The world-building is incredible, the characters are complex and relatable, and the story is both exciting and emotional. The combat is also top-notch, with a wide variety of moves and abilities to master.

Overall, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is a masterpiece of a superhero game. It’s everything that fans of the genre could ask for, and more.
