Spider-Man PS4 is out next month, but we got a chance to play a small snippet of gameplay. From what we can see so far, the game could be the best ever Spider-Man video game of all time! The controls and visuals are something fans should experience for themselves.
Bear in mind, there are still some things we cannot discuss about the game such as the story and some other information about the villains. This preview will simply just highlight the gameplay we experienced so far and as of right now, things are looking very promising!
The first thing you will notice is that the graphics this time around are far more realistic than The Amazing Spider-Man 2 back in 2014. I remember playing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on PS4 four years ago and was disappointed by its lackluster visuals because it looked like an early generation PS3 game! Thankfully, Spider-Man PS4 looks very next generation with its 4K visuals and smooth animation.
We got a chance to play the game on a PS4 Pro and New York City has never looked this good before in a video game. You really need to see the game for yourself in order to ogle and its excellent visuals.
Web slinging in Spider-Man PS4 also feels very smooth and very satisfying. It feels faster than some other Spider-Man video games and the controls are pretty easy to master even for beginners. That said, I still think Spider-Man 2 on PS2 still has the best web slinging mechanics, but the new game is also decent for what it’s worth.
In terms of gameplay, the combat system is just as smooth as the web slinging. A predictable statement says the combat is similar to the Batman Arkham games, but this is really true. Spider-Man can take out enemies surrounding him with ease and he can use his web shooters in a variety of different ways.
The gameplay is also very involving and cinematic as there are a lot of explosive action set pieces in the first few minutes of the game. I don’t want to spoil who you have to face, but he’s a big boss and he has lots of enemy minions! The first segment of the game is really fun and I cannot wait to see what the full game has in store for us.
All in all, Spider-Man PS4 is shaping up to be an excellent game and it could be the best ever Spider-Man game ever made. Hopefully the rest of the game is as enjoyable as the beginning. The game will be released exclusively on the PS4 from September 7th, 2018 worldwide.
