Enjoyed it, wasn't too long nor short. Great way to build Miles character. Amazing story!!

Almost like they reverted to an earlier build where everything was less precise and polished. Zip-to sometimes goes the completely wrong place, even when standing still, abilities like instant ko-ing certain armed enemies with perfect dodges will sometimes not have the prompt work, enemies will sometimes get up from stealth kos, the list goes on.
The core game is still fun, and when the game finally gives you all venom powers, Miles is quite enjoyable to play as over Peter, but the slow drip feed with such a short game absolutely kills it here.
The plot is beat for beat identical to Spiderman PS4 except worse. Some of the supporting cast is well done and I enjoyed characters like the Prowler or Genke, but the main villains are just less interesting versions of the cast of the previous game.
And there's no excuse for having any of Miles suits or abilities locked behind NG+. NG+ should strictly be about giving your character everything previously unlocked, but with enemies getting all their gear from the start too at a higher difficulty. Never lock new features behind NG+, and ESPECIALLY not QoL features like being able to cancel camo early to store charges. That's just terrible.
Overall, its the core gameplay of Spiderman PS4 except worse. Still fun, but baffling given they nailed it so well the first time. Makes me nervous about Spiderman 2 if that game too reverted to a worse build of its predecessor.

Copy and paste of first game except worse???

Fun to platinum. Quite short but overall good.

Nice intro to Miles Morales and his story for the Marvel’s Spiderman storyline.
