Spider-Man 2018 is an incredible action adventure game influenced by Marvel comics, developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The game features Peter Parker as the main character, secretly known as Spider-Man. You can also play other characters like Mary Jane Watson and Miles Morales during the main game’s story. The best thing is that you can wander through the city that never sleeps, New York. This article will review the main game walkthrough, downloadable content, and some side missions.
The main game covers Peter Parker’s life as Spider-Man. You are a mature adult who needs to balance life between college and fighting crime. The story is simple and what intrigues me the most is that you will have the opportunity to unlock battle suits, gadgets and abilities by completing main missions and side missions. You will encounter a lot of supervillains and the hardest part is when you will have to meet two villains at the same time, for example Electro and Vulture.
DLC: The City That Never Sleeps
Additional downloadable missions, which aim to eliminate Hammerhead and his goons in all three DLC series. All three DLCs will reveal Hammerhead’s true intent with the Magic group.
The heist, as the name suggests, requires Spider-Man to be more stealthy on missions by getting close to Hammerhead’s goons. I felt the missions are easy relative to other DLC as I am used to playing stealth games like Metal Gear Solid. It’s proven in stealth capabilities here, which means equipping yourself with stealth abilities is crucial.
War for territory
Turf War, as the name suggests, requires Spider-Man to fight Hammerhead’s goons. The thugs are extremely strong, outfitted with stolen Sable battle suits. You will need to be equipped with high fighting skills and defenses from attacks like launching missiles. From this DLC onwards, I prefer to use the combination Spider Bro and Spider Drones as you are surrounded by tough enemies both on the ground and in the air.
Silver Lining is one of my favorites among the other two DLCs. The DLC covers most of the Spider-Man PS4 characters, especially Silver Sable. The all-out battle of Turf Wars continues as the game leads to a possible rematch against Hammerhead. Unlike in Turf Wars, the people of Hammerhead are fully equipped with Sable’s gear, making them incredibly strong to defeat.
Taskmaster and Screwball challenges
The most popular side quests that allow you to obtain those base tokens to upgrade Spider-Man’s level, gadgets, and abilities. The missions included stealth, combat, and web balancing skills that you will need to find the right setup for Spider-Man. Personally, I find combat challenges the easiest to get to Spectacular level, while other missions tend to get repetitive by nature.
One of the interesting side quest stories that was initially unleashed during Demon’s investigation. Simply put, Spider-Man has to complete all the side missions to eventually take on Tombstone himself. That is the toughest boss of all the side missions.
Collecting all the recordings was one of my favorite side missions after Tombstone. Spider-Man needs to collect all the evidence from recordings scattered around New York City. Once you have collected them all, you will witness an interesting ending in Yuri Watanabe.
