Having more animations doesn't make Arkham's combat deeper. This game actually gives you quite a lot of options in combat even outside the gadgets.

The game's combat isn't Arkham style.

With that said, Spider-Man's combat > Arkham's combat.


Many reason were listed why it was s***, to which you have no counter point. Stating Spider-Man's combat > Arkham's combat without any substance only serves to strengthen the OPs argument. The combat in Spider-Man is inferior for the obvious reasons already listed.


Spidey's combat is not inferior, you just suck at it. Git gud, scrubadub.

From an assertion in the OP, I disagree completely about this game relying too much on gadgets for combat. I think the gadgets are fun, cute, and add variety, but I almost never use them, and certainly don't rely on them, even when playing on Ultimate. In fact, I find the gadgets are a little distracting to use. For some reason, unlike Ratchet & Clank games, which do heavily rely on gadgets, I find that all the myriad of gadgets in Spider-Man are a bit of a distraction, and I lose immersion when I try using them.

Also, I don't agree with the OP that reliance on regular webbing (which I suppose is a gadget, too) is a problem. Webbing has been a huge staple in Spidey's arsenal since lol 1962, and I see no reason for this game to change that paradigm.

I do agree with the OP that the parkour is somewhat dubiously implemented. I almost never use it unless a mission requires it. I do think there is a lot of room for improvement in the parkour, and that it was probably better on paper than it was implemented in this game.

As for punching and kicking, I find when in combat, Spidey uses both to my satisfaction. I think that the combat in this game is better than any Spider-Man game in history. Even WoS, which I think it a great combat game, as well.

Thanks. I think it also has the virtue of being somewhat accurate, no? :)
