We've all had a good laugh about that whole puddle outrage, with a minority calling out a single comparison that they claim proves Marvel's Spider-Man falls short of what was shown off during previous demonstrations. Insomniac was quick to explain that the changes were merely from an artistic perspective, and that no supposed "downgrade" had occurred, but this led to accusations of lying. We're not sure how this whole thing spiralled like it did, but hey, it's the Internet.
Handily, Digital Foundry stepped in to put Insomniac's latest game under the microscope and see what's really going on. As you can imagine, it was left very impressed by Spider-Man's visuals, often praising the attention to detail on characters and the environment. When it comes to the infamous "puddle room", DF did note that the reflection within the puddle was less detailed than what was shown in the E3 demo, but that having highly intricate puddle reflections across the game world would be an unnecessary addition in the grand scheme of things. On the evidence that the game runs very smoothly, has a very clean image quality, and features advanced technologies like volumetric lighting and dynamic resolution scaling, it's clear that Insomniac knows what it's doing.
It's worth checking out if you're at all interested in the technical stuff. Hopefully, this means the people crying "downgrade" can find peace, and we can all move on with our lives.
