If your Spidey sense is tingling, then trust your instinct. The Amazing Spider-Man isn't a flawless adventure, but fans of the superhero from comic books and movies will no doubt enjoy swinging, fighting, and crawling through this game. You really do feel like you can swing around New York, anywhere you want, as opposed to being kept on a tight leash while tackling various missions. The combat, while on the easy side, heats up with memorable boss battles, plus gamers will like the balance between combat and stealth. Classic villains have been re-imagined for this game, including Scorpion, Rhino, Felicia Hardy, and Iguana.

The writing is smart and funny, the controls are easy to pick up, and there are many collectible comic pages to snag while swinging through the air and while running on rooftops. The game's indoor missions aren't as fun as the freeform outdoor ones, however, and after you play the game through there's little reason to do it again. Overall this game is fun, funny, frantic, and faithful to the Spider-Man universe.
