I love the first Spiderman game on ps4, my fave ps4 game. this looks pretty similar which isn't a bad thing I think I was just expect a bit more. will wait to see what its like in person as videos and screenshots never do games justice tbh

That looks great, and also fun. The only remark I would have is that it's weird he keeps talking casually during the fight, when punching/kicking without giving a sign of being out of breath. But that's very very very small. The rest looks great.

Looks like a much more polished Spider-Man 2018, which isn't a bad thing at all, but was hoping for a little bit more wow factor seeing as they said this is taking "full advantage of the PS5 hardware".

A definite day one buy, gotta say Miles has the most annoying fucking voice, just wanna throat punch the cunt.

Loved that Parker and Morales team up at start, that's some good superhero shit right there.

Game looks so clean and polished, very impressive indeed.

In the first game, you actually have two sets of dialogue for Peter in the open world, one where he is still and one where he's a bit out of breath, what with all the swinging and zipping through Manhattan.

TBH I didn't notice it before I read about it. Still, a neat little touch.

Does look the same as last gen. Except cleaner image quality. Not sure why every single exclusive PS game has to be received with "oohhs..ahhhs". It's ok to have an average good looking game based on a great franchise.
You’re a sad little man. Imagine your life being so miserable that you spend your day in forums downplaying amazing looking games. Do you have anything better in your portfolio?

I think it does look like a slightly upgraded and more clearer Spiderman PS4 which is great, was hoping for a bigger jump up but for a cross gen title it is an amazing start.

Game looks pretty good BUT... game play looks utter dogshit, qte and animation triggers everywhere. Whats the angle here, dumbing it down like this? Demographics? Make everyone feel like their "superawesome" at gaming?

It is the tutorial mission, Kingpin was the same, this is aimed to ease in new players whilst wowing them with a boss fight/set piece off the bat.

I will buy it but at the same time I don't see anything there that screams next gen. In fact, it looks exactly as I remember Spiderman in my PS4-Pro.

This is impressive? Maybe it runs 4k60fps?
Don't get me wrong Demon's Souls and Ratchet and Clank looks gorgeus(next gen) to me, but this one is like evolution, little better than on PS4 (which looked amazing too).

Miles voice is horrible. Thought someone dubbed over the video as a meme
I noticed that in the last trailer, his voice is pretty annoying.

Also good luck on having a good boss fight with free flow type of combat...

Don't know much about the Spiderman universe, but is the Miles Morales character supposed to sound like a whiny brat? That voice is hilariously bad.
Man, I wanted to say that, lol. Gives you the urge to punch him in the throat.:messenger_confounded:
It sounds like Chris Tucker's 14 year old nephew is doing the voice.
So Miles is transitioning then.
Did someone kick Miles' voice actor in the balls before he delivered his lines?
Is it me or the voice of Miles sounds off? Like higher pitched. Is someone different voicing him?
Miles Morales sounds like Kevin Hart :messenger_neutral:

You can only expect so much when the last game came out just two years ago. It's an expansion that costs $50 for a reason. Sony isn't a charity, their full fledged games will be $70. It will be a fun game to play while we wait for a true sequel. Demon's remains the only next gen looking game.

I'm watching this on a 1080p display, but there is a very noticeable visual difference between cinematics and gameplay. Miles running around looks very current-gen The up-close fighting scense looks better, the character model of Rhino looks definitely very detailed. I guess it's the lighting and post-processing effects that differ the most.

Someone who played the crap out of Spider-Man in 2018, platinumed it and still kept playing it, I have to say that I am incredibly excited for Miles Morales. Now talking about visual fidelity the brief boss battle didn't quite show a staggering leap compared to say the September 2020 PS5 showcase spiderman miles morales gameplay debut event. This looked like the same PS4 Spider-Man running at native 4K footage which isn't a bad thing per se, just that this boss battle footage didn't quite look next gen. Also Spider-Man from 2018 is so damn good even for today's standards, perhaps the final game on PS5 (Miles Morales) would show the difference or the true sequel aka Spider-Man 2 on PS5 exclusive. Also do we know why we are unable to get Spider-Man Miles Morales traversal as fast as the Wired article demo where traversal speeds are super fast. Is it because the game is cross gen??

It's cross-gen, it's launch title, it's been in development for only 2 years. It's a massive achievement from Insomniac games and people are shitting on such a great and artisticlly strong game with really good gameplay, just because it's not from their favorite brand.

People only look at pixel counts and not actually the game looks. Is it the best graphics showcase? Hell no! Does it have to be? No!

People think that this is sony gaf but take a look at the same topic on reeeee, people are getting bashed for every single comment about the gameplay :ROFLMAO:

At least here people can talk freely about shitty mechanics or that fucking crashed balls voice on miles...

Man, please.. I'm not even going to go there. At this point it's not even wise to put the PC up against anything coming out on the next-gen consoles. They are that far behind in features and power.
Man why do you come to these threads? It's so cringy.
We don't jump into Nvidia threads to shit on them for their meme launch and secretly pushing their profit margins with that exact paper launch or inflating their performance numbers with "30" TF 3080s.
Jeez. I can see your name popping up on THAT list again, as always well deserved.

I usually don't notice those minor things either but in Spiderman 2018 I really noticed it before the articles about it were published.
Actually I thought to myself that budget was spent on such a meme that most people won't notice lol. But I guess people found it cool after all.

I don't get it, it's shinier, crisper and a little smoother but it's the same game, right? Just DLC... I'll watch it again on my 4k TV but I can't generational leap vibes from this like I do with R&C or Demon souls (if DS footage isn't Bullshots).

It looks good but if you told me that was on the PS4 pro I would have believed you.

Still, not as lame as the Xbox series show off so far.

Okay, 4k and I still don't see it and the parts that do look great are polished cenimatics. Show me miles morales getting some optional super fast web slinging ability that allows to traverse a three times the speed or so and I'll be impressed cause right now, this looks like cross gen DLC.
