The Amazing Spider-Man Combat And Stealth Demonstration

By Ishaan . June 23, 2012 . 3:00pm

Marvel have put out another vignette for The Amazing Spider-Man, this one focusing on combat and stealth takedowns, showing how you use the Web Rush feature to take out enemies without them spotting you, and how you deal with groups of enemies. Watch it below:

  • aaaaaaaannnnndddddd Interest in this Game went up by 24 lvls!

    Damn it looks good, Now hope the game plays well!

    • Don’t for get to alllocate your points.

      • Ah yes, forgot I was using the Dragon Quest skill system xD

      •  He’d best use them wisely, otherwise he’ll use a Lethe’s River Water to reset, which costs 17 bucks. xD

    Best spider Man EVER!!!!

    Spiderman : New York City

    Well, I can’t blame Beenox from copying a battle system from one of the best superhero videogame series of all time.

    The Web Rush is like an improved version of the Zipline mechanic from Spiderman 1 and 2 on the Playstation.

    The rest of the combat reminds me of Deus Ex Human Revolution where Spiderman got XP points for going Stealth or Lethal, in Spiderman’s case it’s stealth or kicking some butt in a non lethal way lol.

    •  With the way Arkham City does its work, there was no doubt that someone’s gonna implement the same gameplay with Spiderman, and it DOES work, when programmed right.

      I’m not convinced by the enemy A.I. in this video though. Either they’re so stupid that it takes two hits for them to get my health in the red zone, or they just…..suck. Seriously, Beenox. Don’t force players into two choices if there’s no real consequence to both infiltration and stealth.

  • Spiderman: Arkham City lol

    • midgard229

      exactly lol, what a rip off lol

    • rebecasunao

      In my opinion it’s okay to use the mechanics of other game as long as they don’t only copy it but improve it as well.

      • Solomon_Kano

        I’m inclined to agree but… I just can’t help but feel stealth has no place in a Spider-Man game. I’ll be glad if they improve on Arkham City, but it’s still… it irks me lol.

        • rebecasunao

          Hmmm yeah I kinda agree with you. Spidey uses stealth but he doesn’t have to use it as much as Batman for obvious reasons…

          • Solomon_Kano

            Seriously. Can you even be stealthy in bright blue and red spandex? Seems a bit counter-intuitive…

          • Zeik56

            Spidey can be plenty stealthy in the source material. Not as much as Batman, but I didn’t see anything in that trailer that was abnormal for Spider-Man.

          • rebecasunao

            Hahaha that’s true XD

          • Solomon_Kano

            @Zeik56:disqus I’ve read enough Spidey comics to know he can be stealthy when he wants to be. Twas a joke.

            I still don’t like the way that they’ve put it in here. Rather than make a Spider-Man game like their prior ones and add stealth (Shattered Dimensions, really), it looks like they threw a lot of that style out to make this closer to Arkham City. That said, I’m liking how this game looks, but I’d have preferred they not add stealth at all if this was how they intended to do it.

  • Spider-Man

    Ugh, camera too close to Spidey. Combat looks disappointing. Everything looks clunky. Looks like they went with the red screen for health instead of traditional health bars. Will console versions get demos soon? I want to be fair and give it a try despite my nitpicks. :

    • Guest

      I sun like far camera

  • Taking tips from Batman, obviously.
    I think the game looks good, honestly, but don’t these guys have ANYTHING to talk about besides the “Web Rush” mechanic?!

  • Edit: Should have looked below because the joke was made already.

    Playing the demo for the 3DS ver., the combat felt okay, but I wish there were specific combos at least. It felt like I was just mashing the attack button and only pressing different ones for specific on-screen prompts or to Web-Rush when enemies were far away so as not to lose my combo (which was actually easy as heck to keep, I easily got it up to 50+ or so on my first try).

    Anyway, I might get this game just ’cause I’m a huge Spidey fan, but only because of that.

    Combat looks better on the console than the 3DS version, and I quite liked the little demo on the 3DS! Sadly for some reason it froze during the last part I believe as it was stuck in a weird Web Rush tutorial with a Soda Machine I think? I don’t know why but the X button wouldn’t work for some reason at some point but when it did it played fine. I wonder if it’s the demo or something else, my 3DS plays the other games just fine without no problems with the buttons.

    Anyway I look forward to playing this game! Reminds me of Batman: Arkham Asylum (haven’t played Arkham City yet but I’m getting the Wii U for that!) with the combat except that Batman is slower with the grappling hook escape, since Spider-Man has increased agility makes it easier plus his webs are faster than Batman’s grappling hook.

    But I’m not going to play this game until AFTER seeing the movie first!

  • so its spiderman arkham city.
