The Amazing Spider-Man Trailer Reveals the Power of Web Rush

View author's profile

Spider-Man's agile acrobatics just wouldn't be as effective without his web-slinging abilities, which is why developer Beenox has unveiled a new swinging feature for The Amazing Spider-Man that enables the ol' webhead to perform his incredible web-spinning feats seamlessly on-the-fly. It's called 'Web Rush'.

Slowing down time, you're able to make decisions pertaining to where you swing next as you traverse your way along the New York City streets, whether you're jumping between cars or battling towering bosses. This also extends to Spidey's stealth prowess, enabling him to execute high-wire balancing acts and sneaky attacks from above.

Check out the new trailer below showing and explaining the Web Rush mechanic in The Amazing Spider-Man, which is due to launch on June 26th in North America and June 29th in Europe, ahead of the movie's release this July.

It should be required that Rocksteady must make all super-hero games.

IDK about this one yet. Spider-Man SD was great but EOT sucked big time. And @ 5 not all movie games suck. Wolverine was very good and so was Spider-Man 2

#4 & #5 Not necessarily. The Incredible Hulk was a movie tie in game, and IMO it was awesome. This looks similar to Web Of Shadows, which for me, was the best Spidey game ever made.

I personally enjoyed:
Spiderman 1 the game
X-men Origins Wolverine the game
Terminator Salvation the game
Aliens vs Predator (2010)
Star Wars The Force Unleashed

I am not sure if the last two count seeings how they where not based on a specific movie they had their own stories. But both of their source materials are the movies which their based on and their where alot of references in AVP to all the Alien, Predator, and AVP movies. And also their where alot of references the Star Wars movies in The Force Unleashed so those are my favorites.

And as for this it looks better than your average Movie Based game. Of course I have seen promising previews before and been totally disappointed like Thor God of Thunder and Captain America both of them totally sucked. But we will see about this one it seems like they are making a real genuine effort to make this good. But I guess only time will tell...

I also don't think that all movie games suck.

There are some games from movies that are amazing.

Wolverine: The Game
Godfather I and II
Aliens vs Predator
Toy Story 2
Wanted: Weapons of Fate
The Bourne Conspiracy, etc

And let's not forget a game that revolutionized First Person Shooters, 007 GoldenEye.

This looks like a throwback to Spiderman 2 which I really enjoyed. I will probably rent this game. I am pretty excited for it though. Movie games can be good, that trend has been broken several times.

I think Beenox has done pretty well with the spiderman games. The only way it can be bad if activision make them rush the game. Captain America wasnt a bad game.

Quick question... Is this game going to be a free-roam-y sandbox game? Or is it going to be more akin to Shattered Dimensions?

yeah there has been some really crap superhero games but thats how you get the good ones like the incredible hulk,spiderman 1,2, web of shadows, wolverine or flash oh wait they canceled that one dumb arses or like superman returns was ok but the second superman game screens and alpha were awsome quick time fighting scene with doomsday though a 50foot storied building but then that never made the light of day we need more faith in the devs to have faith in what they do so we can have a game so awesome that even the dragon warrior will bow to the awesomeness and will be noobing the stan lee dlc and shame on you anyone who buys the game with no stan the mann dlc or gets the rhino or two extra missions dlc thats a no no stan the man all the way and @26 from what ive seen i believe it will be on par with web of shadows free roam scryerneo

I was kinda hoping for some first person Mirror's Edge action after that first movie teaser, but this looks pretty good as it is. Bullet time makes a lot of sense for dealing with characters that move at superhuman speeds. I'm not bothered by it being a movie tie in, I've been playing those since Raiders of the Lost Ark and ET on Atari. Modern cash-in's are solid gold compared to those.

Aliens vs. Predator, and The Force Unleashed aren't "movie-games". They weren't made to tie in with any release.


Same for Wanted, Bourne (which is actually based more on the novels), and Goldeneye. Not really "movie-games". They're just licensed products.

As for actual movie-games this gen I enjoyed...

Incredible Hulk
Captain America
James Cameron's Avatar
and a few others that elude me...

From what I understand this has been in development for 2-3 years. I have high hopes for this title because everything I've seen so far looks quite promising.

@29 Good Marvel Zombies joke there, but seriously a Marvel Zombies game could be pretty awesome!

On to the real topic though, I don't recall playing any movie games that were very good but I havent played any of these actual movie games that have been mentioned. But I'm all for them trying to make them good considering they are going to be made out of a marketing strategy and it will sell nonetheless. It looks like they are trying to make something good out of this title and the movie looks like it will be pretty awesome also.
