Arachnophilia: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Lord of the flies

I have to admire the latest video for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game tie-in of the sequel to the reboot of the film trilogy adaptation of the long-running comic book series. For one thing, it claims to be the 'first gameplay' footage and that's exactly what it is. It seems to have been edited by the most haphazard of methods, with combat sequences ending seemingly at random, and the combo-chain combat lacking the fluidity of Arkham's animations. Spidey has a tendency to jog against enemies just before he kicks them, like a giant spider-dog humping their legs. And then there's a bit when the music just stops while he's hanging a bad man from a web. The silence made me think I was watching a murder.

At least it's real though. I mean, if you buy The Amazing Spider-Man 2 these are things that will almost certainly happen while you're playing it.
