Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: The Non-Spidey Review You’ve Been Waiting For 



Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: The Non-Spidey Review You’ve Been Waiting For Alright, folks, hold onto your spandex because Spider-Man 2 has crash-landed on the PS5, and we’re here to spill the beans on this game faster than you can say, “With great power comes great responsibility.” So, strap in, webheads, and let’s dive into the wild and web-tastic world of Spider-Man 2! This game is like that moment when you realize you don’t have to pretend to support your friend’s terrible life choices anymore. Why? Because it’s finally unshackled from the old PS4, and boy, does it spread its wings! Traversal speed? It’s doubled, people! You can now zoom through New York like a superhero on an espresso binge. Miles and Peter can catapult themselves through the skies faster than you can say “Spider-Sonic,” and guess what? No technical hiccups on the PS5. It’s got the memory and SSD speed to handle even more traffic, buildings, and pedestrians, so say goodbye to buffering and hello to uninterrupted crime-fighting. Water is the new star here. It’s all dolled up, with fancy geometric surface bodies wrapped around boats and characters. Water’s got a bigger role in the city’s vibe now, influencing your travel, and even getting in on the action in epic scenes. It’s like Spider-Man meets Aquaman, but without the seashell bikinis. Ray tracing? Not only is it better, but it’s now part of the art design. Enabled in both performance and fidelity modes, it’s like having your cake and eating it too, with a side of ray-traced frosting. The water gets a ray-tracing makeover, making it look cooler than a polar bear’s toenails. Then there’s the AI-generated muscle deformation system, which sounds like a fancy science experiment but translates to better suit animations and more human-like movements. It’s particularly handy when Venom decides to get all shapeshifter on us. You’ll see all of this eye candy in action during your epic battles. Now, let’s talk modes, shall we? Fidelity is the go-to option, delivering a silky 30fps and dynamic resolution scaling. It’s basically eye candy for your retinas. And remember Mary Jane’s hair? It’s got more bounce than a trampoline convention – trust us, you’re gonna love it. But if you prefer your Spider-Man experience as smooth as your grandma’s dance moves at a wedding, then performance mode is your jam, with a heavenly 60fps. Performance in Fidelity? It’s a locked deal, and if you’ve got a VRR screen, consider yourself blessed. Forget the non-RT performance mode – it’s a relic of the past. With a max resolution of 2560x1440p and all the bells and whistles, VRR screens will give your performance an extra kick, like adding nitrous to your web-slinging. Now, for a dose of reality. Some rough edges still linger, like smoke effects that could use some cough drops and minor animation quirks that Spider-Man might want to iron out. The city’s density has grown, but world detail hasn’t quite kept pace. The polygon count isn’t doing any high jumps, so some objects still look like they’ve been teleported from the PS4 era. In a nutshell, Spider-Man 2 is like that friend who got a makeover but is still the same goofy pal you adore. It’s impressive, no doubt, especially if you’re upgrading from an older console. But if you’re already on the PS5, it’s a bit like getting a wardrobe overhaul – fancy, but deep down, it’s still the same awesome you. And let’s not forget, no matter how you spin it, Spider-Man 2 still makes you feel like a true superhero. Excelsior!
