The highly anticipated Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is almost upon us. The reviews dropped yesterday and the game instantly swung into Metacritics highest-rated games of the year, so far.
Millions of players have been waiting on Insomniac's new Spider-Man adventure. Hopes were high as every trailer showed something that got us more excited. This was Insomniac's chance to extend their universe further while incorporating one of the most famous Spidey stories of all-time. Thankfully, the game seems to have lived up to its hype, hitting a score of 91 (Universal Acclaim) on Metacritic.
Not just one of the most anticipated games, but also one of the best in 2023
User reviews are still a few days away as the game hasn't released worldwide yet, but holding a critic score of 91 at this point can only mean good things. The Spidey sequel's rating is based on 122 critic reviews and all of them a unanimous in praising everything from the story to the fast loading times that make New York feel seamless.
From our own 9/10 review Ewan said this "This is an amazing fantasy come to life and realised like never before. Insomniac Games has crafted yet another heartfelt Spider-Man story bursting with twists, turns, and show-stopping spectacle."
Much of the industry who have played the title are eager for everyone to get their hands on the game. Among the praise there are a lot of highlights, "Insomniac mastered the PS5 technology" and "Spider-Man 2 is a towering achievement in every metric" or "Incredibly fun to play, fast-paced and full of heart."
There are a few days left to wait until we can all start web-swinging through New York and experiencing "An excellent story is strung together by a series of stunning setpieces and boss battles that remind us Insomniac Games really is best-in-class when it comes to the PlayStation 5."
