Fast-paced action and calm skill passages
In addition to many fast-paced action passages, which demand a quick reaction and good hand-eye coordination from the players, there are also some quieter passages that require logical thinking and skill. Due to the many side missions, puzzles and smaller challenges, there is a lot of variety in the adventure. The sometimes heavily armed opponents must be defeated by skillful fighting moves. In contrast to the opponents, Spider-Man has no weapons at his disposal. The many opponents must be overwhelmed by evasive maneuvers, the use of cobwebs and your own fist strength. For the puzzles in the laboratory or in the city mostly electrical circuits have to be established or unknown substances have to be identified. In addition, objects or smaller battles are hidden everywhere on the map, which can be discovered. All of these tasks help to learn new skills, to develop special powers and thus to become stronger and faster.

Violent representations
Even if the game is integrated into a fictional setting, realistically designed weapons, such as rifles, pistols or grenades, are shown with which the opponents fight Spider-Man. The bloodless depictions of violence are sometimes more and sometimes less concretely depicted and partly embedded in a gloomy atmosphere. As the game progresses, difficult topics such as suicide bombings or executions are illustrated. These are not explicitly shown, but could stand in contrast to the rest of the game for younger players. Due to three different difficulty settings, the players can decide for themselves whether they want to complete the game without fights, play a balanced mixture of action-packed fights and quiet passages or want to master as many challenging fights as possible.

Marvel’s Spider-Man convinced the game testers with a lot of fun and not only fans of the comic franchise wanted to complete one mission after the other. Due to the sometimes very fast-paced gameplay, the depictions of violence and the thematization of problematic aspects, the game tends to appeal to young people from the age of 14.
