Marvel's Spider-Man DLC: Silver Linings Review

According to an old saying, every cloud is supposed to have a silver lining, and as Spider-Man, you often have to look for the good in a whole sea of bad. Thankfully, the Silver Linings DLC for Marvel’s Spider-Man has a whole lot of good to it, so searching for the proverbial good part wasn’t that hard.

Marvel's Spider-Man DLC: The Heist Review

Released over a month ago, Marvel’s Spider-Man has been a permanent fixture on my PS4. I play it the way I played Spider-Man 2, which means there’s a lot of aimless swinging and random crime stoppage. Sure, I could have started a new game and gone through the five star story again (which, btw, I am doing right now on New Game+), but I wanted to make sure that my Spidey was pristine when the promised DLC was released.

The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man may not only go down as one of the best Spider-Man games but one of the better movie licensed games out there because it doesn’t feel like a movie game. Beenox did a great job of taking a movie based gaming and fleshing it out into its own thing.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

One thing is for sure, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is a great looking game, and it is a game that in concept sounds impressive. However when the rubber hits the road it just manages an average at best experience that won’t change anyone’s mind about Spider-Man video games. Unless you are a diehard Spider-Man fan I would say there are better games to sink your time into this fall.

Spider-Man 3

I hate to use the same line I have been using since first become a video game reviewer, but movie to video game adaptations have the highest tendency to over hype and under produce, and in the case of Spider-Man 3, that is exactly what happened. Spider-Man 3 is a game that has all the workings of being a great comic book video game, but the final product is deeply flawed and in need of some serious re-tooling.
