We’re just two days away from the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. I would ask, ‘Who’s excited?’ but that’s a silly question considering that many are hailing Insomniac’s latest as the best superhero game to date.
In our review of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, GAMINGbible’s Ewan wrote, “It’s hard not to come away from my time with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 grinning from ear-to-ear. 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.” It is easily a major Game of the Year contender. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 isn’t just entertaining, it’s innovative, with one of the best fast travel systems we’ve ever seen - and yet, players are refusing to use it.
Take a look at Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 in action below.
If you haven’t seen it, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 allows you to fast travel to any point on the map almost instantaneously. Simply pick a spot, press triangle to fast travel and as Peter or Miles, you’ll swing straight only the street you selected. The thing is though, traversal is so incredibly fun in this game. Not only is the web slinging back, but we’ve now got the addition of web wings, slingshots, and wind tunnels.
As such, while fans are impressed with the fast travel, many are flat out refusing to use it. Twitter user kirawontmiss wrote, “I’m not using no f**king fast travel when I’m SPIDER-MAN.” Plenty of others agreed. “The swinging in this game is free therapy,” added yeahyukki, while 4øø_kay said, “You can bet I’m swinging every damn time.”
Of the traversal, we said, “I can tell you now, you will never get sick of firing out two web lines and catapulting yourself across the city, soaring through the air before deploying your web wings to catch a wind tunnel and zoom from Queens to Hell’s Kitchen in a matter of seconds. Swooping down to stop a crime - and potentially bumping into the other Spider-Man in the process - is never anything less than delightful.” Dive in on 20 October.
