I was really excited to play Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. I’d seen the trailers and they looked great. I’m a big fan of the Spider-Man comics, so I was really looking forward to playing as Miles Morales.
The game starts with a bang, with Miles Morales already Spider-Man and teaming up with Peter Parker to take down The Kingpin. It’s a great introduction to the game, and the graphics are amazing. The whole game looks like it’s been lifted straight out of the comics.
After the prologue, the game fast-forwards a few months to Miles’s life as Spider-Man. He’s still getting used to his powers, and is struggling to balance his responsibilities as Spider-Man with his school life and home life.
The game does a great job of making you feel like Spider-Man. The controls are intuitive and easy to use, and the web-slinging is a lot of fun. The combat is also really well done, and there are plenty of different enemies to fight.
The story is really well done, and Miles is a great protagonist. He’s a relatable character who is just trying to do his best. The supporting cast is also great, and I really loved seeing Spider-Man team up with other heroes like Captain America, Iron Man, and even Doctor Strange.
The only downside to the game is that it’s relatively short. I beat it in about 10 hours, which is shorter than most Spider-Man games. There is some replay value in the form of side missions and collectibles, but I would have liked to see more.
One of the most anticipated aspects of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the new traversal mechanics. In the previous game, players were limited to swinging around Manhattan. However, in this installment, players will be able to zip-line and vault across the city. This will add a whole new level of verticality to the game and make traversing the open world even more fun.
In addition to new traversal mechanics, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will also feature new combat gameplay. The previous game’s combat was already excellent, but it looks like Insomniac Games has taken it to the next level with this installment. In the trailer, we saw Miles using his venom blast to take down enemies, and it looks like there will be a variety of other ways to take down foes.
Overall, I loved Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It’s a great game that looks amazing, and Miles is a great protagonist. If you’re a fan of Spider-Man, or just looking for a great game to play, I would highly recommend it.
