Game Profile

What started out as the search for a killer very quickly becomes something so much more.

In a unique story alongside the events of the second film, Spider-Man discovers he’s not the only one tracking down Manhattan’s criminals. The underworld has been turned upside down with a one man campaign of violence and murder that is has captured the city in an iron grip of fear. Villains from the film as well as fan-favorite, classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, free-roaming, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Man’s reckoning.


  • Play as Peter Parker: Play as Spider-Man’s citizen alter-ego persona as you investigate the motivations of multifaceted villains.
  • All-Star Villain Cast: Wide cast of Spider-Man universe and movie villains, each with their own unique boss battle encounters.
  • All New Web Arsenal: New web-swing mechanic includes expanded web-shooter capabilities and chemical properties that allow you to freeze and blow up items on impact.
  • Expansive NYC: Explore and take on villains in a more expansive Manhattan cityscape than the previous Amazing Spider-Man.
  • New Heroism System: “Hero or Menace” system rewards you for acting as Spider-Man by stopping crime and saving citizens, but face the consequences if you don’t keep down crime rates.
  • Advanced Combat & Upgrades: New abilities and expanded fast-paced, acrobatic combat moves bring players up close and personal as Spidey takes down foes.
  • Free roam available on Wii U™ system only.

MK8 and ASM2 will both be around £35 - £40 on launch but in a couple of months ASM2 will probably be a lot cheaper whilst MK8 will hold its price. The logical answer therefore is to buy MK8 now and ASM2 in a couple of months when it's cheaper. But dang it, I love Spiderman and I need to play ASM2 right away I tell you! Let me know if this has helped at all...

@Curlynob Yes. I'll probably get ASM2 for my birthday and then just buy MK8 outright. Especially now that The Big N is giving away a free retail-download with it. (Only 4 choices for us yankees, though.) : )
