Free-Roam is one of the coolest features to be ever invented in a video game. The main reason for this is that Free Roam allows you to do what you want, when you want. It’s like having an entire new world all to yourself, where you alone are the decision maker. The Amazing Spider-Man gives the concept of Free-Roam a much needed boost. The game gives you the power to jump and web-sling around the city of Manhattan, New York, bringing the rush of adrenaline to a whole new high.
The game is an epilogue to The Amazing Spider-Man movie and allows to you explore the superhero’s world beyond the film. The game is targeted towards anyone who loves the famous web crawler. The third-person open world action-adventure game has many new surprises that will keep you glued to your television for hours. The game is available for the PS3 and has a Teen rating from ESRB.
Synopsis and Features
The game starts off where the movie ends. Unusual experiments are on the rise in the Oscorp facility and while you are trying to explore what is wrong, the city gets engulfed with a viral outbreak. The only person who can find the cure for the outbreak is in an asylum. You must find him and break him out of the asylum to restore peace back into the city.
Developed by Beenox and published by Activision, The Amazing Spider-Man introduces new elements previously unheard in the gaming franchise. The game allows the use of both handheld controllers as well as the PlayStation Move. The compatibility with Move is a welcome addition as you can experience gameplay in a more interactive manner.
The single-player campaign within the game will take you throughout Manhattan as you fight numerous villains in order to unravel the truth. These include the famous Rhino, Iguana, Vermin and Scorpion. Each villain has unique abilities that are special to them, allowing you to experience a different type of combat every time.
The combat in the game has been improved significantly. You can now block as well as counter attack enemies with a flick of a button. Each fight move can be combined, allowing you to generate a combo. New combos can be unlocked by gathering enough XP. These help you to take down enemies in more destructive and visually spectacular way.
The game includes side missions that are more relaxed than the main campaign. You can also go on a long exploring trip around the city to hunt collectibles such as the comic pages. Searching for collectibles is exciting and fun as you can learn and memorize new shortcuts throughout the city, allowing you to reach enemies faster while playing the main missions. The comic pages collected within the game permit you to unlock and read real comic books in the extras menu. You can also unlock different costumes as you play further.
The game has some interesting additions like Web Rush and a special damage system. Web Rush is a feature that allows you to slow time. This helps you in getting out of tricky situations when villains are shooting bullets at you. Just one click of the button and you can be out of the thug’s bullet range, giving you the opportunity to beat him to pulp. Damage system takes a special mention as it affects spider-man’s suit with every hit of damage you take within the game. The updates, demos, wallpapers for the game can be downloaded from the PSN Network.
A minimum distance of 6 ft is required between the player and PS3 console camera for a smooth gameplay experience. Additional space is required if more players join in. Place the gaming console in a living room or the main hall to provide freedom for your hand and leg gestures. The room is required to have proper and even lighting. This helps the camera to capture your every moment and give you a seamless and entertaining gaming experience.
