QUICK TIME REVIEWS: Marvel’s Spider-Man

Posted October 1, 2018 by Andrew Semicek in Video Games

Welcome to Quick Time Reviews (or QTR for short!). On these posts a We The Nerdy member reviews the first few hours of a game to determine if it’s worth your time. Games will be graded with a Yay (worth it) Meh (worth looking at via a rental or discounted price) or Nay (don’t even bother).

What’s it about:



  • Best interpretation of Spider-Man in any video game. Period
  • Swinging is a absolute joy and easy to learn
  • Combat is fast and exactly how you’d expect Spider-Man to fight
  • So many suits with different perks to unlock alongside of them
  • Various web shooter variants to spice up combat
  • Game has a satisfying conclusion but leaves the door open for more…much more
  • All main characters feel fleshed out
  • So much to do
  • J Jonah Jameson’s podcasts
  • Plot provides interesting twists and turns I did not expect to see


  • Too many boss battles revolved around grabbing and swinging objects
  • Some levels have instant failures, which are frustrating
  • Weird way to change time of day after completing the story

Is it worth your time?
