The reviews for Spider-Man 2 are in, and the game has become Insomniac’s highest-rated release with a 91/100 on Metacritic. Amid the incredible anticipation, these reviews have led to even more excitement for Spidey’s latest adventure.
While Spider-Man 2 was always expected to sell incredibly well, its success has already begun to show through pre-orders. The game has reached the top of Amazon best sellers, beating various releases.
Why it matters: This is just the beginning of the web slinger’s success. The franchise has already sold over 33 million units, and it seems the latest entry will continue this momentum.
As seen above, Spider-Man 2 is miles ahead of upcoming releases like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection.
The game’s excitement has led to a sales boost for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, propelling the PS5 launch title to the second spot. At the time of writing, Spider-Man 2 is dominating the Amazon best sellers, but its success extends beyond the US store.
On Amazon, the upcoming release has made its way to the top in regions like the UK, Canada, Germany, and even Japan. Therefore, Insomniac’s efforts appear to be showing their results already.
It is also important to note that this is not Spidey’s first run of success on Amazon. Following July’s story trailer, the game reached this spot, and it has returned after the latest wave of praise.
Reviews have pointed to a noticeable visual leap, exciting gameplay, and a familiar superhero adventure for the game.
Spider-Man 2 is one of the few PlayStation first-party releases that have skipped the PS4. This decision has allowed Insomniac to flex the console’s muscles, creating a truly next-gen experience.
Insomniac’s work on the game has also led to comparisons with Batman Arkham City. Such comments have us excited for 20 October, and we cannot wait to try the game for ourselves.
