We entered the autumn calendar, the place of the sun in the sky was already taken by some clouds.
The temperature becoming, in turn, more … tolerable.
You should not worry, but we will have the opportunity to continue to “warm up” with the many video games that will appear at this time of year.
The first on this list being the really new Spider-Man.
The result of the collaboration between Marvel Entertainment.
Sony Interactive Entertainment publisher and the Insomniac Games tradition studio .
Briefly, from the preliminary stages of the project.
Insomniac Games insisted on an original story within the boundaries of the spiderman ps4 2018 universe.
Without taking over or directing inspiration from movies, cartoons or already drawn comics.
So, in the new game, we’re dealing with a more mature Peter Parker.
With no less than eight years of experience in Spider Man’s costume.
As well as a “narrative remix” of the roles played by some of the most famous characters from this universe.
Aunt May takes care of a homeless home help center.
Mary Jane Watson is an ambitious reporter for the Daily Bugle.
A newspaper for which Peter has dropped out of working for a scientific research collaboration with Dr. Otto Octavius .
Thus, although things may seem unusual at first glance, the narrative evolution will go in a familiar direction to spiderman ps4 2018 fans.
Without missing the twists of the situation.
Not necessarily surprising, but absolutely sufficient to complete a successful story for this universe .
And while we have an open game environment, producers deserve praise for their direct approach: if you only want to live the story in Spider-Man.
You can do it without any artificial limitation.
Just following the thread of the main missions.

Without losing time with any of the additional Manhattan activities at Insomniac.
A great white ball to this chapter for Spider-Man, compared to the forced progression formulas used in other titles.
Anchored in all sorts of artificial limitations (such as Assassin’s Creed Origins , for example).
Returning to the open world of spiderman ps4 2018, we can say that this is the biggest minus of the game, but also one of its strengths.
Organizing Manhattan’s virtual spiderman ps4 2018 looks like a lot of suspicion with what I’ve met a few years ago in most of the open world games like Assassin’s Creed or inFamous .
Specifically, the game environment is divided into several sectors, each with its own towers to be activated.
Which in turn have the gift of “discovering” portions of the map and highlighting additional activities and side missions which can be approached in those areas.
And when it comes to these activities, we have a strong déjà vu again.
With collectible objects spread throughout the map.
Pigeons to be hunted across the city and capture.
The difference, however, is that most of these activities.
Compared to other titles that use the “open” world formula.
The work is facilitated by the excellent mechanical web swinging.
Which makes traveling around the city a real pleasure.
Well, it takes some time to accommodate, but once you learn and unlock the acrobatics.
You just forget that the game also benefits from the fast travel function.
With regard to collectible items, acquiring them gives you a sense of “accomplishment,” rewarding with small memories of Peter Parker’s previous adventures (in the case of city backpacks) or different trophies (when completing some secondary narrative threads).
Besides, each such work done results in the winning of different tokens.
Which can be used to unlock new costumes (each costume comes with their own special ability) or upgrades for the used gadgets by Spidey .
Another element that keeps the “fun” factor at high odds is the fighting in the game .
As mentioned in the preview, the spiderman ps4 2018 combat system borrows the basic concepts of Batman Arkham titles.
But it does so in a particularly inspiring way.
In addition to the attack and escape button.
The fighting experience is enriched with elements characteristic of the spider-hero.
The ability to use the cloth to disable enemies.
To snap their arms out of their hands to use environmental objects as projectiles, special executions, etc.
Also, unlike Batman, Spider-Man can carry his battles “high” , with certain types of enemies being more vulnerable when projected into the air.
But also to the gadgets we mentioned earlier, completing the picture of extremely dynamic fights.
Where you have to alternate between approaches and attacks to cope with the waves of enemies.
With the average difficulty setting being much more accessible than the preliminary one I could try in July.
In addition, the player’s interest is kept alive and through the segments of the main story where you will have the chance to embody other playable characters such as MJ .
At these times, you can have either exploration sequences where you have to solve some puzzles or stealth portions.
These sequences being sufficiently different to each other and adapted to the special abilities of each such enemy.
Overall, despite some familiarities, spiderman ps4 2018 is a game that you can hardly untie .
However, there are also some less appealing aspects.
But they do not manage to spoil the excellent impression left by this title.
It’s about the moments when Peter Parker.
Out of spiderman ps4 2018’s costume, has to do various experiments, reproduced with simplistic mini-games inspired by the old Pipe Mania.
None is really difficult, but unnecessarily jams the action of the game.
Another element that bothers in this respect are certain kinematic sequences sometimes too long: .
Though excellently accomplished, they present some scenes that could have been playable.
Enhancing the player’s involvement in some decisions and vital actions for the story.
At some points, it is necessary to intervene in these kinematic sequences by performing Quick Time Events.
But this approach is not enough, and why not to say it, slightly obsolete for the fall of 2018.
Returning to the positive points, Spider-Man is a particularly spectacular title.
A quality that stands out, as Insomniac Games did not necessarily want to give the game a photorealistic look.
We’re dealing with a bunch of factors, highlighting the artistic style used, bearing the “signature” of the studio artists.
The look of the characters rather than the Resistance series rather than other ultra-realistic graphics.
The animations , especially those of spiderman ps4 2018.
Are excellent, and it is obvious that the producers have carefully studied the films and other references when they reproduced Spidey’s set of moves.
Any Marvel fan should be more than delighted with this accent on authenticity .
As for the recent scandal about the visual downgrade of the game, Spider-Man is one of the world’s most impressive open world games.
The Promised Release Photo Mode was not available in the review edition.
If we were to look for a knot in this chapter.
We might recall that the game does not benefit from a dynamic day-night cycle.
These transitions requiring additional loading times.
Regarding the audio part of the game, we have only praise for Spider-Man: the characters are excellently interpreted by experienced actors such as Peter Parker / Spider-Man or Yuri Lowenthal (The Prince of Persia in The Sands of Time ) or Laura Bailey ( Uncharted: The Lost Legacy , Batman: The Enemy Within , Injustice 2 , Gears of War 4 , Mass Effect series, etc.) in the role of MJ.
And the soundtrack could win some awards at the end of the year, the key moments in the story.
As well as swinging web sequences through the city being accompanied by musical portions of the “uplifting” .
Even though, personally, I would have liked producers to take more risks with such a game and seek a more original approach.
The open world formula, baffled and even banalized by the abundance of similar titles published by Ubisoft in particular.
Spiderman ps4 2018 proving that it has that wonder-like ingredient that lacks too many contemporary games with claims : the soul .
