Superheroes has always interested me. Even though I don’t read comic books myself, I have always greatly appreciated superhero stories in moving format. Doesn’t have to be movies, games work as well.
Among the best superhero experiences I have had besides the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Insomniac’s Spider-Man game for Playstation 4. Insomniac being a studio that i really like after playing games like Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive. The latter being my favourite game on Xbox One.
In Spider-Man the similarities are striking, using the same engine, now running on a competing system, the tempo is the same and also the ease of manoeuvring in the big sandbox that is Manhattan. I would say that Insomniac was the perfect match for the Spider-Man franchise and I am very much looking forward to the sequel that is romoured to be in the works.
The story is also interesting, and the villain cast is brilliant. There are few things so tellingof my enjoyment of the game than that I never used the fast travelling system. I find it so much fun swinging though Manhattan at a brisk pace, listening in on the police radio, helping the neighbourhood as well as I can.
