A great sense of flow and immersion helps set this game from bad movie-tie ins.
BUT, Beenox finally decided to go back to the web slinging, open world, and with better combat. And more often then not, the game was very addicting because of the web slinging, which is incredibly immersive. The combat however, is ripped straight out of Batman AC, which I really didn't care for that game's combat either. Anyways, the stealth is also pulled from Batman, which IS good. Now, the game is easy. When I mean easy, I mean, EASY. You should get through this game with less then 3 deaths. HOWEVER, if you watch The Escapist's Jimquisition, game journalist Jim Sterling, created a new kind of difficulty called, "Kirby difficulty", where getting through the campaign by itself is easy, but the unlockables are expertly hidden and are really cool to get. In The Amazing Spiderman, their are 700 comic book pages all around the city you can collect. 700! This makes the game go from 10 hours of gameplay, to 25+ hours of gameplay! What's really cool though, is that you can actually read the comic books! That's an awesome way to stretch out the game time!
So, all in all, the open world, the web slinging, the stealth all make this purchase a great one, and sets itself from the usual movie-tie in garbage.
