Amazing Spider-Games Part 3: Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2

No Comments

Welcome back for the penultimate segment of Amazing Spider-Games!

This time we will wrap up our look at recent Spider-Man video games. In our first segment, we looked at Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. Part 2 brought us to Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and Spider-Man: Edge of Time. And now, the Amazing Spider-Man game series. I recently made my opinions on the films more than known during my look at every comic book movie ever, but I will actually surprise some people with what I think of the first game. The second game… not so much. Look, these games are going to be much like the last two sets: one good one, one not so good one. Y'know, I never isolated that trend before now and it's really weird how common it is. Makes me a little worried about Insomniac's next Spider-Man game.


10. Amazing Spider-Man: The Story

The game takes place a few months after the first film. With the Lizard safely in prison, Oscorp (now headed by Alistair Smythe) uses his work to make a bunch more animal hybrids for… um… I'm not actually sure.

But, because this is both a video game and a Spider-Man story, they all break out immediately and it's up to Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy to stop them. Eventually Smythe's technology starts to gear up into some Spider Slayers and Spider-Man has to break Curt Connors out of prison to figure out how to stop the animal hybrids once and for all.

And of course there's your usual stream of side activities and other such stuff. Peter and Gwen flirt, and at the end of the day, nothing changes really and everything resets for the next movie. There's some fun uses of the Spider Slayers, which are an underutilized part of the mythology as far as video games go.

Like, you have a stable of giant murder robots at your disposal, why not use 'em?
