This article leaves no doubt, here is our analysis of the all new Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The analysis was carried out on a PlayStation 4, and before I even give my opinion on the game, you should already know that I can’t wait to play the version of the game for PlayStation 5.
Although we are a few days away from the arrival of the next generation console, this Miles Morales comes to prove that the PS4 still has a lot to offer to fans of video games.
As for the game itself, it’s not just another game in the Spider-Man saga … and if you’ve played the original title, released by Insomniac Games in the summer of 2018, you’ll notice that we are faced with a slightly different game. , but for the best. While in the previous one we played with the famous Peter Parker, in Miles Morales we played with Miles, a new spiderman, younger and with “superpowers”. One of those powers is a kind of bioelectricity, which basically allows Miles to accumulate / produce electricity, and therefore do little wonders. Another novelty is the fact that it can become invisible, which is very useful in many situations.
Like in the original game, Miles Morales is an open world game, with a large map full of points of interest. Its main plot takes around 19 hours to complete, but we have a lot of side activities that will make you ‘waste’ even more time (probably another 4 or 5 hours). These activities basically consist of solving petty crimes, collecting time capsules and, of course, saving cats.
This Miles Morales is simply wonderful
To be simple and straightforward, it’s amazingly fun being Spider-Man. In most open world games, I admit that I leave the side missions behind, but in Miles Morales, I feel like finishing them. I’d loved the Spider Man of 2018 before, but it far exceeded my best expectations.
In this new adventure, the game begins with a mission where Miles and Peter Parker work side by side, to prevent our famous Rhino from escaping from a prison transport, and above all to prevent him from doing what he does. better. , wreak havoc. And that’s where we learn Miles’ moves, and trust me you’ll really need them … even if you played in the first game. It’s just that despite the same moves as Peter Parker’s Spider, Miles Morales has a different flow when it comes to combat. Both can mix two different attack styles, use items, throw webs at enemies, etc. With Peter we felt more contact with ground combat, and brute force in throwing objects. Miles already has it all, but he’s even more agile and lighter, with a greater focus on juggling. In addition, his new powers of “bio-electricity”, certainly give his attacks a special emphasis, and above all something really captivating.
It’s not easy to analyze such a wonderful game without getting into the spoilers, and that’s what I’m trying to do. But graphically, this game will have you wondering if now is the right time to buy a next-gen console. Is this game for PS4 excellent in terms of graphics, and the best I have seen on this console from Sony.
Obviously the game for PS5 will be better, with faster load times, and with even more detail, but the good news is that if you buy the game for PS4, you will be entitled to the PS5 version for free (when you buy the console).
Sound is another very important note, and if you have a good sound system, you will feel all the environment this game will give you. Each punch is a punch, each canvas launched is a single canvas, all the details seem to have been thought out down to the smallest detail, that is, absolutely nothing is missing.
I was trying here to find a less positive point about this game so that I can bring it back to you, but honestly there is nothing to point the finger at, and once again Insomniac Games has proven that it knows what the gamers love, and need … Even on PlayStation 4 when PlayStation 5 is already a reality.
Evaluate Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Final Verdict
If you are a Spider-Man fan, you can’t miss this game. Don’t wait until you have the PlayStation 5 to buy it, because for me it is one of the best games ever made for PlayStation 4 (then you get the game for free on PlayStation 5). And I consider it to be one of the best games, not only because the game is great in terms of graphics or sound, but because we are facing a game full of soul, and that makes a game. should do: have fun. Yes, I haven’t had this much fun with a game in a long time, and this Spider-Man: Miles Morales did it really well.
I can’t remember the last time a game made me sit on the couch, hooked up to a remote, with headphones in my ears, until 5 a.m. Maybe the last time this happened 15 years ago, but Miles Morales has managed to make it repeat itself in recent days.
