The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is based on the popular movie with the same name, and it is an action-focused game with an open-world map that provides a ton of gameplay and content. The game is quite an improvement over the first, and players will love swinging through New York as they complete missions.

The game is broken up into story chapters to make the action a bit more structured, and the basic premise of the game is fairly straightforward. You play as everyone's favorite web-head, swinging and zipping high above the streets of the city, and you must dive down to the ground to fight bad guys or help a citizen with a problem.

The game is technically a paid game, but it also includes a number of in-app purchases to prevent having to grind out experience or currency to progress through the plot. With tons of side missions that will earn the player credits, unlocking the new skills and items can provide its own fun. Players who don't want to have to repeat side missions over and over to earn credits can simply buy them instead.

What's great about this game is that it features many of the most famous villains that Spider-Man ever encounters, like Venom, the Green Goblin, and Electro. Each chapter focuses on a particular enemy, and the way their stories are woven together makes the campaign a lot of fun to play through. The main story is definitely the most appealing aspect of the game since the side missions can easily become overly repetitive.

There's also an Arena Mode in this game that allows the player to test their skills against hordes of enemies. The goal of those games is to destroy as many of the enemies as possible without dying, and players can compare their scores online. Those with the highest scores will earn in-game currency to buy new upgrades and items.

Anyone who played the prequel to this game will instantly be familiar with the controls for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Since this game is made for a mobile platform, it relies on touchscreen controls. One side of the screen holds a digital joystick for moving the character, and the other side controls the camera.

It is a bit difficult to get the hang of the web-slinging and jumping mechanism since they both use the same button, but web-slinging is by far the best way to quickly move across the map, so players will need to find what works for them. It is particularly difficult to change direction while flying through the air, but with time and patience, the skill can be mastered.

If you are a fan of Marvel or Spider-Man in particular, this game shouldn't be missed. It provides a lot of fun content that gives the player the feeling of actually controlling the full power of Spidey, but be wary of the in-app purchases in this paid game.
