New Amazing Spider Man Game Trailer
You’d be forgiven for having given up on video game Spidey a long time ago. He hasn’t been on top interactive form since Spiderman 2, and in the light of Rocksteady’s excellent treatment of Batman, Beenox’s latest efforts with the webslinger seem especially lacklustre. The developer claims to be turning things around with this newest title – and yes, this is the one tied directly to the new film’s release schedule (which is usually a good sign. Right!?)
Despite the need for quite a lot of preconception repression, Activision’s latest trailer highlights one of the more exciting mechanics of the game. ‘Web-Rush’ allows Spiderman to slow down time in a variety of contexts and undertake automatic traversal and combat-based interactions. It looks to add a lot more fluidity and depth to all elements of the game, allowing film-esque stunts to be executed with ease.
Whilst a single addition to the franchise is far from wiping Beenox’s slate completely clean, let’s hope this mechanic ushers in new heights for video game Spidey to swing around in.
