    \o/ I managed to finish this tonight... that third act had some of the highest highs and the lowest lows of the entire game but man, that was some good shit :).

    Looking forward to the DLC now

    I have just finished it as well, terrific, loved the boss fights by and large very cinematic, the traversal and fight system was the outstanding part though.

    Not too bothered about DLC, platinumed it, I think that will do for me.

    For the love of hot buggery! Is there no way to restart a Taskmaster challenge without finishing it?

    Yep, there definitely is. Can't remember how though, but I had to do it once as the first couple of corners in a drone challenge were tricky.

    @DFawkes Abandon Challenge in the start menu is the closest Iíve found but it takes you out of the challenge entirely so you have to reload it etc. - quicker just to finish the blasted thing.

    Yeah that is the only other way... it is the worst bit of game design and needs to die in a fire!!!!

    In the end, having to abandon the challenge, wait for load, move to challenge box, wait for load, fuck up first or second jump... repeat meant I just stopped going for golds.

    The drone ones if you move away from the drone it fails the mission quicker and getting caught/dying on the stealth/combat ones works well too.

    FFS. What a pain in the arse that is. Cheers for confirming though.

    Can you load the checkpoint/last save or something?. I'm sure I did something that put me back at the start of a challenge.

    Will have to take a look next time.

    In other news though - end of Act 2!!!! Bonkers.

    I donít know quite what it is though but Iím close to losing my interest in the game. I really enjoy it and I love Spidey but something about it isnít quite as gripping as, say, Uncharted for me. I think maybe Iím just done with the whole open world hub mechanic. All the non-story tasks feel more like distractions than anything else, not really adding anything to the game. Probably just me though - just not sure I have the patience for a lot of stuff nowadays (eg I have Zelda BotW, Witcher 3 and DKTF on hold right now).

    Yeah I felt like that at the end of Act 2. Act 3 is a big improvement.

    Finally sat down yesterday to finish all the open world stuff and got the Plat.

    It's my GotY. Not because it has the best gameplay - I fully agree that the OW events are too repetitive - but I love what they've done with the Spidey-verse, the story and characters are all excellent and the mechanics involved when playing Spidey are really, really strong.
    Even the stuff around the backpack collectibles, the free choice of suits and abilities are brilliantly done. It's unusual that a developer working with such renowned and expensive IP will still let you play the version that you prefer rather than sticking stringently to their vision. I really appreciate that choice.

    Looking forward to all the DLC, and I'll absolutely smash the NG+ next year some time.

    I don't really like Spider Man as a hero and didn't enjoy previous games on PC. However, one of my co-workers recently bought this game on PS4 and said it is AMAZING. So now I'm a little lost and thinking of getting it too.

    The PC versions were all shit versions, they had nothing in common with the PS2 versions other than the name and shared marketing.

    Iím not the biggest Spider-Man fan but this was great.

    Still find this hard going to get into. I just get so bored after playing about half an hour. Into act 3 and it's ramped the combat up which just makes the whole thing more frustrating. The story bits aren't bad but half the time that's just cutscenes. Now there's snipers and rocket dudes everywhere and some of the outposts are far too long. bluergh

    Just to confirm, you just select reload last checkpoint and you will be restarting in a few seconds. Essential for the drone golds.

    Just so you're aware, you don't need to gold all the challenges for the platinum/100Č

    I'm just mopping up these side missions and I've only just started to read spiderman's ingame twitter account. The little touches like the blatant misspelling and random capitalisation actually made me chuckle.

    I've almost completed the first act.

    What?! I've been away a lot!

    I know it's different to Arkham etc. but did they really have to include a "poison state" hallucination level like the Scarecrow level in Arkham? Wasn't a fan of that level. Felt like a cliche.

    I love Spidey, and I like this game but it's not quite there for me. Don't think I'll be massively sorry when it's over frankly.

    Finished this last night. Not gone for all the side stuff yet, and may not - played for around 9 hours yesterday, so I'm a little over it just now. Final thoughts - the opening stages dragged a little and the early story beats are broadcast pretty blatantly, but the the game really starts singing, like a Summer Blockbuster from around halfway in. In the early hours, I struggled to really care what was going on, and yet the gameplay kept pulling me back in.

    I did end up Fast Travelling a little (probably less than 12 times in the whole game and that was because I wanted to blast the story yesterday) but the traversal is sooooooo well done. Combat kept evolving to the end and the unlock, skill, gadget, suits pacing was perfect - always something to add to your arsenal.

    I think I actually prefer the combat to the Arkham games. It took me a while to realise that you don't need to approach fights at a frantic pace. The combat is much more rewarding when you really take your time - The Stealth Taskmaster challenges are VERY satisfying and are a good tutorial almost in how to approach the combat. All in all, will probably get the inevitable 2nd game....
