Spider-Man 2018 is an amazing action-adventure game influenced by Marvel comics, developed by Insomniac games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The game features Peter Parker as the main character, who is secretly known as Spider-Man. You’ll also get to play other characters like Mary Jane Watson and Miles Morales during the Main game storyline. The best is that you’ll be able to roam around the city that never sleeps, New York. This article will review the walkthrough for the Main Game, DLC and some Side missions.
The Main Game covers Peter Parker’s life as Spider-Man. He’s a grown and mature individual that needs to balance life between college and fighting crimes. The storyline is straight forward and what intrigue me the most is that you’ll get the opportunity to unlock battle suits, gadgets and skills by completing main missions and side missions. You’ll encounter many super-villains and the most difficult part is when you’ll need to encounter two villains at the same time, for example Electro and Vulture.
DLC: The City That Never Sleeps
The additional downloadable missions, which aims to eliminate Hammerhead and his thugs in the three DLC series. The three DLCs will reveal Hammerhead’s true intention with the Magia group.
The Heist as the name suggest, requires Spider-Man to be stealthier in missions when approaching Hammerhead’s thugs. I felt the missions are easy relative to other DLCs since I’m used to play stealth game-based like Metal Gear Solid. Here you’re tested on stealth capabilities, which means equipping with stealth skills is crucial.
Turf War as the name suggest, requires Spider-Man to brawl with Hammerhead’s thugs. The thugs are extremely strong, equipped with stolen Sable’s battle suits. You’ll needs to equipped with high brawling skills and defenses from attacks like launching missiles. From this DLC onwards, I prefer to use Spider Bro and Spider Drones combination as you’re surrounded by tough enemies both on the ground and on the air.
Silver Lining is one of my favorites among the other two DLCs. The DLC encompasses most characters in Spider-Man PS4, especially Silver Sable. The all out brawl battle from Turf Wars continues as the game leads to the potential rematch against Hammerhead. Unlike Turf Wars, Hammerhead’s people are fully equipped with Sable’s gear making them incredibly strong to beat.
Taskmaster & Screwball Challenges
Most popular side missions that allows you to get those base tokens to upgrade Spider-Man’s level, gadgets and skills. The missions comprise stealth, combat and web-swinging skills which you’ll need to find the right set-up for Spider-Man. Personally, I find the combat challenges as the easiest to get to Spectacular level while other missions tend to get repetitive in nature.
One of the interesting side mission’s storylines that initially triggered during Demon’s investigation. In a nutshell, Spider-Man have to complete all the side missions to eventually face the Tombstone himself. That’s the toughest boss in all side missions.
Collecting all recordings was one of my favourite side missions after Tombstone. Spider-Man needs to collect all the recording evidences scattered on the New York city. Once you’ve collected them all, you’ll witness an interesting ending on Yuri Watanabe.
