Spider-man 2 is a spider fan’s dream

Jiles Hernandez
Spider-man 2 is the first game ever to feature both Peter and Miles as playable characters.

Many teens or even adults in the US have been excited to play the new game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
This game contains Peter Parker and Miles Morales; Miles is the more recent protege who originates from Brooklyn.
This sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man, the 2018 action-adventure game developed by Insomniac Games, kept its mechanics and mobility simple; however, the game was smoother and the ways of dodging and swerving were improved on.
There are many ways you could harm your enemies, and enemies are thrown around like dolls, juggled in the air, slammed across concrete floors, and slung into each other like body-armored bowling pins – but, naturally, never killed.
The storyline of Marvel’s Spider-man 2 is beautiful
In the beginning, we find that Peter strives to become a physics teacher; he is excited about this very news and we see that he is teaching Miles. There is a storm in the area, unknown to Miles and Peter that the storm is actually Sandman also known as Flint Marko.
Marko is a class Spider-man that ranges all the way back to Stan Lee’s comics.
Spider-Man 2 is, on paper, the perfect sequel. It takes all of the elements that made the first games so much fun and builds and improves on them.
Bigger battles, improved ray tracing, wider story choices with many side quests you can do along the way, build the fun within the game.
There are bigger bosses in the game which make the game more enjoyable, such as Dr. Curt Connors, also known as “The Lizard”, the “Hunters” and Kraven the Hunter.
Kraven the Hunter is a madman obsessed with finding the most dangerous game in the world. Stan Lee also created this character as a nod to the Richard Connell short story. His obsession eventually brings him to our titular characters.
Eventually, Venom becomes a significant character in the sequel, though explaining how so would be a spoiler in itself.
Venom is something Peter has never seen before, he is extremely unaware of this and is led to have the responsibility to fight this alien. Peter is not prepared for the fight and faces a tough decision.
Overall, Spider-Man 2 is a beautiful game which, unfortunately, did not win the Game of the Year award. Though it may have fallen short of awards, it easily everything a Spider-man fan could ask for. The city of New York is alive as ever and our two Spider-men have never been more fun to play.
