Premium remake of a beloved hit
Like its 2018 incarnation, Spider-Man Remastered follows the same main story of Mister Negative’s nefarious plan to bring New York City down to its heels. It retains the same storytelling genius that takes the best ideas from the comic books, letting players experience the thrill of being Spider-Man and the challenges of being young Peter Parker. Also, it includes elements from the original DLC, The City That Never Sleeps.
Giving players a great incentive to revisit the game, you can transfer the saved files from PlayStation 4. This time, however, you enjoy updated textures, 3D audio capabilities, and near-instant loading. However, this also means that the game will be more demanding in terms of system requirements compared to its original version—storage, RAM, and video processing. Without the right setup, expect the game to lag or even freeze.
The game might not be appealing to grinding players who have already achieved 100% from their experience of the original game. The remastered version doesn’t offer a lot in terms of story and missions, although it does have neat new Spider-man costumes and additional achievements to unlock. Like the original game it retains the same restrictions in terms of gameplay—including the side quests still repetitive and too easy.
Experience a modern classic, remastered
Overall, Spider-Man Remastered is as great as its original version, only pushing the limits of modern technology. Experience more realistic graphics and animation, more immersive sounds, and the benefit of exporting your PS4 save file if you have one. Expect Easter eggs and new content for you to unlock. Aside from its minor bump with the side quests, this is an upgrade from the original.
