$40.  I heard this game is ok. 
Lets check Amazon ... $39.99 is actually keeping with the official price of the HD Twins.
Lets check Steam ... $49.99 but is $19.99 for the next 24hours.  The DLC is $9.99 ... so a $60 - $30 Equivalency.
Lets check Metacritic ... A 71.  Not the best Score but it looks like you either liked it or hated it.
But then again $40 so, from all that it wouldn't be to hard to convince me over the edge.  Especially if Beenox fixed  some of peoples Quibbles.

Would this game be the Spiderman version of Batman Arkham Asylum/City?

or is it just another spiderman game?

As a big fan of Spiderman I will probably get this when I can! ^_^ Probably from the eShop, though, I need my points XD

This is what I'd like to know as well. I've heard some good things about the last few Spider Man games but never really dove in because the negatives usually outweighed the positive. If it's of Arkham Asylum/City quality then I'd bite the bullet and buy this game.

Tried watching this gameplay video but the player doesn't seem to be very good :P

I played this game on the PS3, and it's a pretty decent game overall (as was this team's previous Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) even if the Open World wasn't terribly interesting.  It's not up to the level of one of the Batman Arkham games (which are probably the best superhero games ever made), but it's still a good Spider-Man game with a cool combat/webslinging feature in the Web Rush system.  The only "real" complaint people seem to have about the game is that webslinging is "too easy", a complaint I find rather ridiculous and not terribly noticeable unless you're just looking for things to complain about.

BlackNMild2k1February 17, 2013

That's good to hear, because I was looking for the the Marvel version of Rocksteady's Batman.

I guess this is as close to that as I will get.

EasyCureFebruary 17, 2013

^agreed. I've always heard Batman Akham games were good but didn't know anyone that owned either version* and as I don't own a ps3 or 360, couldn't try the game. I was hooked when I bought Armored Edition for Wii U. It's such a good game that it makes you forget most games based on such a license, kind of suck.

*a newer friend brought his ps3 to another mutual friends house once and I got to play some of Arkham City for the first time a few months prior to Wii U's launch, but considering I was drunk, wasn't really in the mood to play a video game, and being thrown in the middle of a save file just isn't the way I like to play a game.

I owned the first one on the PC ($5 thanks to Steam sale).
That made the 2nd one a lock on the Wii U, because the only thing that would have made my Arkham Asylum experience any better was a controller, and one with a touch screen on it, is all the better.
