REVIEW: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN DLC

I finally had a chance to play last week’s Amazing Spider-Man DLC over the weekend, so I’ll chime in with my impressions.

Rhino Challenge Pack

I’ve actually been in possession of this since I purchased the game last June. The pack is a score attack game where you take control of the Rhino and try to increase your point value and time by charging people, police cars, and pedestrians. It’s a pretty fun distraction, but nothing that really held my interest.

VERDICT: Pass

Lizard Rampage Pack

Similar to the Rhino pack, you take control of the lizard in a score attack game. You smash towers to gain extra time but can get additional points by attack Oscorp guards as well. The Lizard is not as interesting to control as the Rhino, and I found the control a little off. You can’t climb on walls, but a lot of the health power ups are on tall buildings. Not sure why not, I’m fairly certain he did so in the film.

VERDICT: Pass

Stan Lee Adventure Pack

This is easily my favorite of the DLC released so far for the Amazing Spider-Man. You take control of Stan Lee, who plays exactly like Spider-Man. One of the nice touches is when you go into first person, the view is through his trademark glasses. I also the lines they’ve given Stan lee. The first thing he says upon emerging is “Another AMAZING adventure from the king of cameos. Take that, Hitchcock!”. The Stan Lee Adventure Pack has two componets: The first is a score attack game where you try to try to collect the pages to his script, the second part is the various mini quests from the main game that you can do as leisurely as you want. You can also just chose to swing around town as the Man as well.

Verdict: Buy

Oscorp Search and Destroy Pack

You get two games for the price of one in this, but neither are really worth the price of admission. The first game is Gwen Hunter, which is a slow and boring version of Space Invaders.

The second is Search and Destroy and it is literally Snake. The same game you played on your Nokia phone back in the year 2000 with prettier graphics.

It probably would’ve made more sense to put these out for iOS/Android devices as a supplement to the main game. You actually play both of them from a phone within the game.

VERDICT: Pass
