Being on top despite huge competition from several titles such as Call of Duty, God of War, and Xbox’s latest giant Starfield, Marvel’s Spider-Man has proved why it’s the best-selling game of all time and the abilities of the developers to give players an experience that they cherish for years to come.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is based on Spider-Man Comics and Spiderman goes head to head against Mister Negative, a superhuman crime kingpin who wants to rule New York City’s criminal underworld in the main storyline. He also has to deal with the challenges that arise with his real identity, Peter Parker. The game also has various side missions for players other than the main story where players can access additional content and collect exciting gadgets and items as rewards.
