Game Revolution 4/5The ending of this first installment of the DLC certainly ends on a cliffhanger, leaving us excited for November’s content. Whether you play it now or wait until all three DLCs are out, The Heist is definitely worth the price of admission and the four hours it takes to complete.
Just Push Start 7/10
Gamereactor 7/10What stands out about Spider-Man: The Heist isn’t the content, though there are a fairly substantial amount of cutscenes, but how little it adds. Even if some things are different or new, they don’t much value. Costumes don’t add new powers, nor do abilities change, so the main motivator is story, followed by trophies. Combine this with there just being a hint of an upcoming confrontation with a major villain and it’s the type of experience that might lead to greater things but isn’t great itself. So, unless you’re dying to play more, I strongly suggest waiting to see where this adventure goes.
PlayStation LifeStyle 6.5/10
Game Informer (unscored) - "A Fantastic Continuation"
EGM NOW (unscored) - Good, but far from essential"
The Heist is a fun little way to spend more time with the delightful gameplay, characters, and world of Marvel’s Spider-Man, but it certainly doesn’t feel like a complete, satisfying expansion on its own. I’m not even sure it feels like a third of one, but I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if The City That Never Sleeps pulls out something special across its next two chapters.
