I feel pretty much the same way. If I'd massively improve anything it would be the side missions. Repetitive and have been done before in other games. DLC was good.I finished Spider man PS4 last night after off and on again playing over about 3+ wks. My impressions are as follows:
First off, I thought that the main story completion counter only counted towards main missions, but instead I guess that counted towards side missions as well. So I was a bit disappointed when I finished the story at about 85%, when I thought I had a little more story to go.
The last two boss battles were fine, but I beat them fairly easily. Now I had gotten very good at combat, which in turn can get a little repetitive at times, but I can't remember a time I finished not one but two boss battles so easily. Idk, felt like there should have been a little more to both.
Don't get me wrong though, the combat is still fun and engaging. Maybe it's because I did a good bit of side stuff, random crime missions etc. That's why it got a little repetitive as time went on.
Very cool, interesting New York to explore. There were many cool landmarks to find, and it, for the most part, felt like a living, breathing city.
Web-swinging is fantastic. It was important for Spiderman to feel much like the Arkham games, where you FEEL like the superhero. Job well done here.
Despite what some may feel, I really enjoyed MJ's parts. One narrative they were trying to push was that MJ was capable in her own right, and could rightfully be called Spider-Man's partner. Despite not having powers, I think she contributed well and I simply enjoyed her.
Not quite sure how to hide spoilers so I won't get into Miles, but he's a fine character himself. The twist in the end kinda had me rolling my eyes a bit, In a good way I suppose, but was very indicative they're were already looking towards a sequal. Which we all know will happen. And with the assets/engine in place and the monster sales it did, the sequel was greenlit the day after this games release.
So really it's a case of maybe not too short, but it left me wanting more. Though I felt like there was an act missing, like I was 3 quarters the way finished and then it just ended.
Count me in for the sequal though. I dont watch superhero movies, or really many movies in general. But that as a good superhero story in its own right, and while it may have been jarring a bit for those that watch the movies, read the comics, considering it's an original story, it was a strong one.
Edit: Oh right, if I had to give it a score? 8.8
