The time has finally come for the PlayStation 5 and its exclusive games to come out one after another. One of the most famous release games this time around is definitely Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and we got the chance to take a look at the PlayStation 4 version. Obviously, the game shows a lot of differences in terms of graphics with the next-gen version, but it still looks very good on a PlayStation 4 Pro and features the same great gameplay. With a continuation of the story, where it ended on the last Spider-Man game and Miles Morales as the new Spider-Man, this one is sure to be an awesome experience for fans of the previous game. A small follow-up update of the PlayStation 5 version will follow soon.


The story of Spider-Man: Miles Morales continues where the original Marvel’s Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4 ended, only now, you’ll be standing in the shoes of Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker. The story begins with an intense mission where both Peter and Miles help a prison convoy transport some important prisoners. Shortly after these events, Peter departs for a vacation, leaving New York in the hands of the younger Spider-Man, Miles Morales. As Miles is watching the city, a new gang called The Underground turns up and wreaks havoc in New York. The corporation Roxxon Energy has developed a new type of energy and The Underground seems to be focused on preventing them from producing more of this energy source. All this together makes up for a great story that constantly continues as you clear missions. In story content, the game feels a bit short as the story will take around 10-12 hours of your time, but it is definitely a great one.


Spider-Man: Miles Morales looks absolutely stunning, even on the PlayStation 4. The city of New York looks beautiful with its many skyscrapers that are all worked out with a lot of details. Spider-Man himself and other characters look very good as well, and you can see that a lot of time has been spent to work out the tiniest details, like the snow falling on Spider-Man’s suit or the clothes of Miles. Peter Parker’s appearance has been changed not only in the Spider-Man Remastered edition, but also in this one, although it’s just for a short while as you won’t see Peter much in the game.


Like in the previous Spider-Man game, the sound is worked out perfectly. The voice animation is done very well, although we did encounter a problem with some lines not being voiced during an encounter with the Prowler where he was talking but we couldn’t hear anything. All the environmental sounds and background music fit the setting of Spider-Man perfectly and some sound like they’re taken right from the Spider-Man movies, which also brings along a bit of a nostalgic feeling.


Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an action-adventure game based on one of the most popular comic series, tv-series and movies around the world, Spider-Man. The last Spider-Man game was a huge hit around the world and when it became known a new game was going to come out based on Miles Morales, the star in one of the most recent movies about Spider-man, we were pretty hyped. Just like in the previous one, you can swing around New York as much as you want, and only this is already really fun to do.

As Spider-Man, you’re constantly watching New York to stop criminals in their paths and save innocent civilians from any dangers that might come their way. In this game, Miles’ friend Ganke has developed an app called the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man app where people can request help from Spidey or report an ongoing crime. With this app, you can smoothly switch from roaming around the map to saving people or stopping criminals by a click in the app to start these side missions.

Of course, Spider-Man doesn’t just swing around New York with his webs, he also fights with a lot of criminals all over the city. Spider-man has a big arsenal of attacking moves to defeat his enemies. The combat in Spider-Man is relatively easy to master, with some easy attacking commands, combos and evasive moves. With his Spider-Sense, Spider-Man will sense incoming attacks which you will see by a flashing icon above his head. If this turns red and you press the evade button, you will perform a perfect dodge, slowing time allowing you to consider your next move.

The new Spider-Man, aka Miles Morales, has some different powers than the original Spider-Man. Miles can use a form of bioelectricity, that is called Venom, to dish out heavy blows to hit opponents and stun them. To use Venom attacks, you need Venom energy, which is built up by attacking enemies and dodging attacks. As you progress, you’ll unlock extra bars so you can save up more Venom energy. Later on, he’ll also learn the ability to turn invisible, which can definitely come in handy in heated situations.

As you level up, Spider-Man will get skill points which you can invest to get skills that grant you more attacking power, more defense, extra effects for skills and more. Sadly, you can’t unlock every skill available as some are locked until you start all over again with New Game+, but these are skills that’ll make you quite overpowered, so it’s good you can’t unlock them right away. Miles’s suit can also be upgraded with modifications that will improve your sensory abilities or increase your damage output. These modifications can be unlocked by investing your activity tokens and tech parts. Tech parts are found in Underground Caches and activity tokens are earned by completing side missions, activities and preventing crimes from taking place.


Spider-Man: Miles Moral is a great sequel to the previous Spider-Man game, with a new protagonist shining in the game. The game features an amazing new story, great combat mechanics and stunning graphics. Swinging through the city is as fun as in its predecessor and that alone can keep you busy for quite a while. We can imagine that the PlayStation 5 version is even better than The PlayStation 4 version and If you liked the previous Spider-Man game, we’d definitely recommend this one.
