Marvel's Spider-Man (Series) Review

OverviewOverview

Marvel's Spider-Man is a series of superhero adventures where you swing through an open-world city fighting crime and advancing a film-like story. There are also many side quests and missions you can take along the way.

When you encounter enemies you fight them with Spider-Man's superhero powers. This focuses on chaining attacks together and using the environment and webs to incapacitate numerous foes while avoiding damage. As you progress you unlock new moves and abilities.

Like Arkham Batman Arkham the combat is exuberant and enjoyable while the wider game offers an almost endless array of different things to do in your crime-fighting character.

The second game in the series is Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. You return to the web-swinging action but as Miles Morales rather than Peter Parker, stepping into his shoes after he has gone.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 for frequent scenes of moderate violence. Violence is typical of the Spider-Man series games with realistic close quarter combat combined with exaggerated, slow motion action. Blood and injuries are depicted and the fallen remain on the field of play.

Skill Rating

This game is enjoyed by 12+ year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. Although younger children will enjoy the swinging around, the skill to progress the story and complete missions means that you need to be a bit older to really get the most from this.

The game offers a setting that enables you to press a button to face an objective. This enables you to progress toward your objective without needing to clearly see it.
