Spider-Man is one of the most popular and easily marketable superheroes of all time, maybe only behind Batman. So, it makes sense that, also like Batman, he would have a sizable video game discography. Starting with Neversoft’s “ Spider-Man” in 2000 all the way to present day with insomniacs take on the character, there has been about ten Spider-Man games. The superhero certainly had its highlights with games like “ Spider-Man 2” “ Ultimate Spider-Man” and “ Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.” Even with these great games, the catalogue is mostly filled with bad to straight up mediocre games. With a hero as loved and iconic as Spider-Man you would think there would have been some more recent attempts at a video game franchise. Well that’s where Insomniac comes in, one day they are approached by Marvel and are told that if they were interested in creating a superhero video game where they could get their pick of the superhero roster. Of course, they immediately knew they wanted to make the next Spider-Man game. Many people were excited when Insomniac announced at the E3 2016 press conference, mainly because of their reputation in the gaming community. Insomniac has been around since the mid-90s and they are known for creating games with fun gameplay and a pretty good narrative to match. These skills that they are known for carry over into Marvel’s Spider-Man perfectly, but it’s dialed to 11 to match the chaotic but also grounded story. This game delivers a true superhero experience, from the first mission you immediately feel like you are Spider-Man. It’s like playing through and getting to be a part of one of the best Spider-Man comic book arcs of all time.
