‘Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ Spoiler-Free Review!

Insomniac Games decided to not only make one best super hero game of all time but TWO! Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the best super hero game I’ve ever played and probably the best Playstation launch title of all time. Let’s get right into the review so I can talk about how much I love this game.

Does whatever a spider can…and more!

If you enjoyed the gameplay mechanics in Marvel’s Spider-Man, then you’re going to love it in Miles Morales. The fighting mechanics were smooth, and I love how unique Miles’ takedowns were in the game. Miles’ venom blast powers were so exciting to use, which made me feel unstoppable, plus it was so fun to string different combos with the venom powers. The ability to turn invisible was a fun way to sneak around and defeat the enemies. Also, the gadgets Miles uses such as Holo-Drones, Remote Mine, and Gravity Well, were all fun to use, especially when things start to get rough. 

My favorite gameplay mechanic in this game is the web-swinging. With Miles Morales, Insomniac Games created the best web-swinging I’ve ever played in a Spider-Man game, and I’ve been playing Spider-Man games since the year 2000. The swinging is so fluid and has such a unique style that it made me not want to fast travel at all in the game, and the only time I’ve fast traveled was after I beat the game. Big Kudos to the developers over at Insomniac Games.

With Great power comes Greatness from the playstation 5

I played Miles Morales on the Playstation 5, and it was breathtaking. When I was playing the game, you can see the different textures in clothing, costumes, hair, and so much more. Do you know how cool it is to see the different stitchings on Miles’ costumes? I was in awe. Also, the game made me felt like I was watching a movie, especially when there were big moment cut scenes, which made me pop hard. 

The game had two options, which were performance mode (locking the game at 60 FPS) and fidelity mode ( using ray tracing to make the game look great but locks at 30 FPS). I decided to try out both features, but as much as enjoyed performance mode, fidelity was the way to go for me. To see reflections from windows and water just made the game look so good! Both features are great, but if I had to recommend a feature, then I would choose fidelity to see what the power of the PS5 can do.

Another thing I wanted to bring up was the load times in this game. The load times in this game are non-existent! Literally, once you turn on the game, it goes right into the main menu, then when you load up a file, it just hops right into it. It was so incredible, but the only time I didn’t mind the loading was when I decided to use fast travel so I can see the subway cutscenes which were fun to watch.

a leap of faith

The story for Miles Morales is phenomenal. The game is about Miles trying to find his footing on what it takes to be Spider-Man, and Miles goes through a lot in this game to show New York that there’s another Spider-Man who can get the job done. The story was fun, sad, and inspiring. What I love the most about this story is that it’s big on representation. As a mixed Black/Hispanic man I can tell you that it hits home, and I was able to relate to Miles a lot. Plus, as someone who lives in NYC, Insomniac Games nailed it with how the culture really is in the city.

The characters in this game were all great. My favorite moments in the game was when Miles interacted with his uncle Aaron Davis and the Tinker. Also, even though the moments with Peter are short, those scenes with them together put a smile on my face. And I got to say J. Jonah Jameson is still incredibly funny in this game as he was in the previous one.

I was able to beat Miles Morales for about close to 15 hours. I did every side quest, collected all the collectibles, and did the challenges. The story by itself is about 8 hours or so, but I wanted to enjoy the game and do everything before actually beating the game. Even the story was a tad bit shorter than Marvel’s Spider-Man, the game packed a punch and was able to tell the story it needed to without adding fluff.   

he’s our spider-man

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is just so good. I don’t have anything bad to say about this game at all, other than some minor bugs that I came across, but it didn’t bother me as much. A great story, fantastic characters, beautiful graphics, the game just hit every box for me.

I’ve been a Miles Morales fan since his debut in 2011. Insomniac Games nailed the character, and it makes me happy that they know what Miles represents to people. I cannot wait to see more Miles in future Spider-Man installments from Insomniac Games. 

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is perfect, and it doesn’t matter which system you buy this for because everyone should play this spectacular game.

Score: 10/10
