I wasn't going to pick up this game right away as I rarely pick up games day 1 but I've got a deal on the game with DLC code so will be picking it up tonight. The theme and avatar from the DLC code is the same one you got with your amazon code I would imagine?

Not so happy with Wal-Mart for pre-ordering, my game shipped two days ago and Canada Post said it was delivered but the store didn’t have it ready yet tonight. When there’s tons of copies in the store.

The redesign has made the store worse in every way too.

Wow you guys weren't kidding. This theme is really slick. It even has updated sounds. Not going to lie. This is the first time since I've had my PS4 that I've even bothered to change the wallpaper. Call me old fashioned or boring but I kind of liked the old default wavy blue theme but this new one makes it feel like a whole new console hehe. I really like the Ratchet and Clank theme too. I was using that avatar for a long time until today.

Just waiting for the game to install...

My E3 preorder from Walmart hasn't even shipped yet. The status is still "Order in Progress". I did an online chat with an agent on Walmart.ca. She said they're having problems with their warehouse. I asked if I could just buy the game at the store and return the one I get in the mail using the receipt from the store. She said no as the sku can be different. Pretty sure it wont' be, but can anyone confirm I can do this?

You can do that.

Just go and buy a copy full price from Walmart. Return the sealed copy when it ships.

I like this game -very similar to the Arkham games in terms of fighting and the stealth aspects,etc. Not that being similar is a bad thing.

Walmart pre order shipped for pickup order. Too bad they don't let you just grab one off the shelf and scan that instead.

I've had this game since launch day. I played for about 3-4ish hours and I'm now 18% complete according the game. My thoughts:
  • I like how fast paced the game is. Too often in video games, the first few hours are a slow burn. The game gets straight into action (both in narrative and gameplay).
  • The graphics are great on the OG PS4. Cut scenes and voice acting are done well.
  • The controls can be frustrating at times. I feel the Arkham series controls better.
  • I'm getting a little tired of the crafting/skill points mechanics in these single-player games.

So it's selling twice the speed of GoW in the UK and triple the speed/amount in Japan. This Spiderman game is a monster! It's gotta be on pace to sell 5 million in its first week worldwide at the point right?

Plat the game few days ago. Once you get a hold of the control it's not difficult to have 100+ hit combos and own the battlefield. The boss fights were kind of underwhelming compared to the base clearing missions though.

Just finished the game the other day. One of the best games I've ever played.

Platinumed the game almost a week ago. Also managed to find a Collector's Edition that someone cancelled. Not a huge fan of the statue, but just being able to own such a rare collector's edition makes me very happy.

The game was incredible, and definitely among my favourite games of the generation.

People always say that but you should take another look at Spider-Man 2 on the PS2. That "Arkham" style combat that everybody compares this game to, was actually implemented in that game. You could say that Arkham refined that combat style, which Spider-Man refined even more. Besides, if you're doing combat in the air, the two styles couldn't be more different.
