There have been countless Spider-Man games in the past, many of which elevated the character and broke new ground. Neversoft’s Spider-Man on the PS1 was the web-slinger’s first outing in a 3D environment while Spider-Man 2 on the PlayStation 2 redefined web-swinging, being hailed as the greatest game based on the Spidey IP. Ultimate Spider-Man garnered a ton of praise from fans too, fondly remembered as one of the gems of the golden era.

But even those games, despite being highly rated at the time, never placed in the 90s. Spider-Man (2000), Spider-Man 2 (PS2), and Ultimate Spider-Man attained a score of 87, 83, and 77 respectively. These numbers were contrasted by the failure of Spider-Man 2 (PC) and the mediocre nature of the webhead’s games during the seventh generation of consoles.

While leaks of the game have exposed the majority of its narrative highs and lows, there were concerns among the players about its implications on reviews. With the sequel breaking through 90, it’s safe to say that Insomniac has once again delivered on its promise, even releasing a pre-launch patch. Fans believe the devs fixed a certain suit as well, showing that the team listens to feedback.
