Most gamers have been burned by movie-to-game adaptations way too many times. With the exception of a few, movie tie-ins continue to disappoint by feeling rushed and tacked-on in order to meet the release schedule of their big-screen counterpart.
So without putting too much faith and hype into the new Amazing Spider-Man game, Beenox look to have captured what a great Spidey game should entail, giving us a throwback to one of the best movie games of all time, Spider-Man 2.
Like the movie, The Amazing Spider-Man is set to reboot and reinvigorate the Spider-Man name, by returning players to the open-world environment of New York, with free-roaming web-swinging and new Web Rush mechanic, which allows players to freeze time and plot their next move, resulting in quick and fluid traversal throughout the city.
The game will obviously feature some of the web-head’s most infamous enemies, such as Rhino and Iguana, with Scorpion and Felicia Hardy also being revealed at E3.
Stay tuned to MyGaming for all the E3 coverage as it unfolds.
