Are you tired of superhero tie-in games? There's a fair chunk of us that definitely are over them. That's mainly because year after year where see paired releases with blockbuster films that clearly get worse, just being prominent cash cows rather than decent video games. It wouldn't be unfair to believe that Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales was one of them.
But let's not get too hasty here. If we remember the actual effort of 3-years past, there were some very redeeming features. Not only Marvel's Spider-Man games but also the entire superhero video games universe. Could Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales carry the torch and keep the game franchise in good faith?
There's a New WebCaster in Town
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a game that's more of a spin-off of the original rather than a fully-fledged sequel. It seems like a creative development choice to expand on the already acclaimed original rather than writing and design from scratch. That means that gameplay is essentially the same, but that's not necessarily bad.
You've probably figured that you'll play the game as Miles Morales. He's the chosen one in being Spider-Man's partner in taking down all the evils that plague New York City. There are unique features behind the new character, including abilities and animations. Still, spidey skills are primarily the same as the predecessor. Thankfully, the first game was so brilliant that it doesn't feel repetitive.
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a gem in its own right despite the glaring similarities. The environments are gorgeous, the action is satisfying, and the narrative is as gripping as superhero games should be. We won't spoil it as it is an integral part of gameplay, but rest assured, it will keep you immersed through the hours of open-world missions to come.
There's very little you can find wrong with this game. The best way to describe Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is that it takes the successful elements of the predecessor and amplifies them into a more holistic, seamless experience. You will find yourself fully engaged in a living, breathing, web-swinging Spider-Man world.
It's such a rarity to say that there's actually a near-perfect superhero game out there. Even rarer to say that the spin-off is arguably better. You couldn't even compare it to other Marvel Universe games. It plays more like Uncharted: The Last Legacy than it does for any other superhero action-adventure offerings.
Despite the similarities to Marvel's Spider-Man and a slight lack of content in comparison - Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a damn good superhero game. If you were ever going to invest in one that wouldn't make you feel disappointed, you can't really go wrong with this guy. It's jam-packed entertainment right until the very end.
