Marvel's Spider-Man is a 2018 action-adventure game developed by Insomniac Games for the PlayStation 4 console. In the main storyline, the crime lord Mister Negative threatens to release a deadly virus; Spider-Man, voiced by Yuri Lowenthal (pictured), must confront him and protect New York City. Shown in third-person perspective, the superhero can move freely around the city, interacting with characters, undertaking missions, and casting webs to incapacitate foes. Development began in 2014 and took approximately four years. Reviewers praised the game for its narrative, characterization, combat, and web-swinging traversal mechanics, although some criticized its open-world design for lacking innovation. Spider-Man became one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games of all time, and the fastest-selling superhero game in the United States. It was followed by the downloadable, story-based Spider-Man: The City that Never Sleeps, which was released monthly from October to December 2018. (Full article...)
