Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, the newest Insomniac Games title, is an absolute success according to critics and audiences. A game that is making history, and not just because of its quality, but also for the impact it is having for PlayStation itself. The game has managed record numbers never seen before by the company, having sold over 2.5 million copies in its first 24 hours, becoming the fastest first-day seller in PlayStation history.
The numbers are impactful, and even more impressive being a PS5 exclusive game. What numbers would it have achieved if it were also on PlayStation 4 like the previous deliveries? Insomniac Games has put in the work, with a long history in the industry and titles of all kinds in which quality is usually a trademark, and now it consistently pays off.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, a memorable sequel
The bar was really high on the part of Insomniac Games, and it was not an easy task to surpass the level of quality shown in the previous installments of Marvel’s Spider-Man, but they have achieved it and in a big way, creating a perfect sequel that we can consider as one of the best superhero video games in history.
In MeriStation’s review, we mention that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is “a textbook example of more and better. It doesn’t reinvent anything, but it improves on everything (absolutely everything) from its predecessors. On a technical level it continues to border on excellence and on a playable level it is now even more fun to swing around Manhattan. The combat has won in its entirety and we are facing some of the best boss fights that the genre has seen in recent years. Insomniac Games signs the best game of its long career and sets itself as the studio in the best shape of the PlayStation factory.”
