IGN‘s snapped a picture which seems to confirm that a tie-in game for the release of The Amazing Spider-Man movie next summer. The logo of developer Beenox, who made Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and Spider-Man: Edge of Time, is snapped on the poster. More formal confirmation should come at New York ComicCon.

    It’s only logical that one of the worst Spider-Man Game developer should develop the new tie-in.

    Agree with #1
    Beenox has only developed below average Spiderman games.

    I mean, the whole concept of Spiderman can only be used at its full potential in an open world game. Having Spiderman not able to fly around with his web and being constantly stuck by visible or invisble walls is like making a Superman game with Superman… not able to fly !

    It’s so true. All of these games lately can’t have sold that well, surely? They have all been pretty dismal.

    It can’t be that hard to make an open world, decent Spider-man game… I know this, because it’s been done before. It’s almost as if they are purposefully avoiding making a good game.

    @2: Agreed. I think they should start considering bringing in Peter’s life into the whole thing. Making the player decide between spending time with friends or stopping a bank robbery. Gameplay with consequences. Kind of like Persona 3, you know. Where the social aspect is just as interesting as the fighting.

    @3: “It’s almost as if they are purposefully avoiding making a good game.”

    That’s exactly the feeling i’m getting.

    Shattered Dimensions had good reviews and comments have been good too; though the latest one “Edge of Time” from them has had bad reviews.

    @5, tbh, I never played the game. From what I heard from friends that did, I was correct to avoid it.

    Poor, poor Beenox. They had to rush a Spider-Man game this year with only half of playable Spidey characters from Shattered D only to get horrible reviews and now have to finish another one for the movie in less than a year.
    F*** you Activision. Don’t you really learn nothing from how Warner is treating Batman? Do you see them rushing Arkham games or forcing Rocksteady into making a Dark Knight Rises game?

    No, but Warner are doing a great job or butchering Arkham City for release.

    This would be brilliant so long as they don’t make it too open world.

    I mean the last thing you want is for sodding Mary Jane/Gwen Stacy to be bugging you on your mobile for a night at the theatre or French resturant when you’re busy trying to save a bus full of schoolchildren that has just been flung through the air by Doc Ock.

    @8: If that’s what it takes to release a good superhero game, so be it.

    @9: Yeah, i agree, think it would work really well if Parker would have some kind of benefit for keeping his social connections fresh.

    In Persona you’d get some kind of Stats boost. And Huge Events couldn’t be avoided. They could do the same with Spider-Man.

    I’m thinking about a social meter or something that makes the game harder and Parker weaker if he doesn’t keep up with his social life.

    Or if he fights too much, to long, he gets sick, less power, etc.

    Parker’s not Batman. He needs to have a healthy social life.

    I wonder why no one has made a really good Spider-Man game yet?

    The idea of including the personal life of PP is interesting; having him be a Bugle photographer too would add a layer to the game as incidental or assigned side missions.

    @11, Spider-man 2 was great.
