Spidey Learns from Kraven in New Trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Video Game


This new trailer features quite a bit of gameplay and our first look at the villain Kraven the Hunter; though he doesn’t seem to be in a villain role right now.  Interesting…

To be honest, there’s not much different here than what we saw in the first Amazing Spider-Man game.  The combat looks pretty much the exact same as the first did, and the only real difference I see is the graphics are a little shinier; which makes sense seeing as how this is the trailer for the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game.  

I wasn’t overly impressed with Beenox’s first Amazing Spider-Man game.  It was a fairly generic button masher that did nothing to really move the franchise forward.  It’s best aspect was returning to the open world structure from previous games.  From the looks of this trailer, it doesn’t look like the sequel is going to be much of an advancement either.

Bitch as I might, however, I’m still going to play this game…a lot.  I’m a sucker for the Spider-Man games, and being able to swing around in an open world is a great way to kill time.  There’s no release date for the game yet, but you can be sure that Activision will have it for every available system out there in time for the film’s May release. 

The Amazing Spider-Man is back! This spring, take control of Peter Parker in an all-new adventure: use your strength, speed, and cunning to take on new foes and even greater challenges. The stakes are higher than ever… Are you ready to return to Manhattan?

What do you guys think of the game so far?
