Spider-Man 2

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is finally here, welcoming us all back to this New York superhero extravaganza with a warm embrace. We think this is Insomniac Games’ best Spider-Man game to date, and you can read all about it in our Spider-Man 2 review. However, today we’re doing a bit of pixel-peeping to see just how far Peter and Miles’ latest outing is pushing the PS5 graphically.

From fast travel changes to street density, there’s a lot of improvements to behold when comparing Spider-Man 2 to its predecessors, Spider-Man Remastered and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. If you head on over to the Push Square YouTube channel, you can find a crispy 4K video, comparing different landmarks, mechanics, and the overall map.

Standing on its own it’s easy to see Spider-Man 2 as a small upgrade, but side-by-side comparisons reveal just how far the series has come. New York has never looked better, and it’s never felt better to thwip ourselves across the concrete jungle.

Do you think Spider-Man 2 is a big upgrade over the previous games? Let us know down in the comments.
