I finally finished this game last night, pretty much agree with most of the review. Just adding that the Noir levels are the most annoying thing ever. They are just a cheap and broken knock off of Arkham Asylum, I think the only Noir level I enjoyed was the goblin one because they let you loose in a huge area and you could actually take multiple approached to enemies and take them out. Whereas the other Noir levels they stick you in Narrow rooms or alley ways and you're pretty much left to doing take downs exactly the way the game wants you too. Even then it gets hard because some enemies will just happen to spot you for no reason at all. And the spider sense aka AA's Detective Mode is pretty annoying in this game, if you're going for collectibles then you essentially have to play with the damn thing on all the time and for some reason it seems to work a lot like infared vision. Suddenly walk into a room with bright lights you're probably going to wash out your entire screen.
All that said, definitely worth a rental. Just zip through the levels skipping most of the henchmen (especially in the later levels) and just go to the boss fights. The boss fights are the best parts of the game, the rest is just mediocre. And the Deadpool level is amazing.
The game is a good rental. Period. Some of the levels are insanely fun while others are very meh...
My favorite level was the Deadpool level where u fight on a series of oil rigs in the middle of the ocean. Great fun.
The first noir level was awesome. Even the boss fight emphasized stealth. However, they got way off on the second noir level taking most of the stealth sections out of the level, which basically felt like a pointless waste of a level.
already bought it, it has yet to arrive in the mail though, but i got a great price on it, and i love NPH as a voice actor so im sure i will get my moneys worth, also the only games you can rent in Denmark are launch titles or sports games.
I guess the closest we ever got to spiderman 2 to was the spiderman game with the venom side levels that everyone hates. This one does sound more like web of shadows or ugh. heroes and villians with beat em up being the focus rather than exploration but I guess that's probably best. With games like infamous and assasians creed spiderman would really have to pull out all the stopss to look good in comparison to them. And as far as I know. No one has such skill at the wheel for the time being. Gameinformer gave it a good score though but it seems they were the only ones. Maybe they too were swayed by the deadpool cameo.
