2. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the worthy successor to Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018). As with any good follow-up, the game took notice of what things worked and which didn’t in the first entry and used that to create an even greater experience. Sure, it was a shorter game in comparison, but on the bright side that meant it didn’t overstay its welcome either (and it also compensated for that with its lower price).

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales came in, told a great story, and finished on a perfect note. But even when players were finished with its main narrative, there were a few missions that couldn’t be unlocked until after that. It isn’t an exaggeration to say this is the best Spider-Man game in terms of post-content offered. Besides, it also improved upon the traversal system introduced in Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018) by adding new seamless animations and new tricks such as the Venom Jump. Combat also had minor improvements thanks to Miles’ abilities such as Venom Puches and invisibility.

Our friendly-neighborhood hero wasn’t the only one to see improvements in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. New York City also felt different thanks to its reworked area of Harlem and its winter weather. Boss fights also were slightly better here than in its predecessor, loading times were shorter, and the game took advantage of the power of the PS5 to look nicer. Even when there was only a two-year gap, the game is truly an improvement over what Insomniac did with its first Marvel project in 2018.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales kicked off with a bang thanks to an exhilarating chase scene between the two Spider-Men and Rhino. That sequence alone surpassed most of the set pieces present in Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018), making a big statement from the get-go. The game swung higher than every other Spider-Man game ever created, and it would’ve sat on top of the list had it not been for the most recent project released featuring not only one but two wall-crawlers at the same time.
