Is ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ the Best Marvel Video Game of All-Time?
We have officially entered the four-year anniversary of the iconic Insominca Games entry, which has led us to the question, is Marvel’s Spider-Man the best Marvel video game of all time?
There are few characters in the history of comics that have achieved the level of success and adoration of Stan Lee’s principal creation; Spider-Man.
A character that seemingly embodies everything that makes a brilliant superhero, Peter Parker has always been known for his timeless backstory that makes him continuously relevant to generation after generation of readers.
There is no doubt that Spider-Man may not just be the height of Marvel comics’ creative efforts over the near millennia of existence, but that over his six decades he may well be the greatest creation in the history of the comic book medium.
That success and brilliance, however, brilliantly translated to other mediums as well, with Spider-Man becoming a smashing and undeniable success on the big screen, and being adapted endlessly to television programs over the years.
And then, four years ago the hero was brilliantly brought to the world of video games in a project with all the potential to be a brilliant entry into the mythos of the hero
But after that four-year existence, one thing is very clear; Marvel’s Spider-Man may well be the greatest Marvel video game of all time.
There is a lot of competition, as Marvel has been in the business of video games for decades now, from the massive success of the Marvel Vs. Capcom series, to the most recent Marvel’s Avengers game.
Titles range from fighting properties, to mission-based gameplay; but one thing that separates Marvel’s Spider-Man is clearly its excellence in execution in everything it attempted to be.
Marvel’s Spider-Man isn’t just a fantastic open-world game; it excels in that area and becomes one of the most fluid and experiential open-world experiences that gamers could ever hope for.
And equally, Marvel’s Spider-Man isn’t just a good video game, it excels at being an excellent Spider-Man story that truly embodies the many qualities that make Peter Parker such a timeless hero.
Marvel’s Spider-Man isn’t just a top-tier video game or an excellent Marvel experience; it is the best Marvel video game of all time.
