A virus infects New York City, the military comes in and quarantines the city. The military is nothing compared to the ultimate way to stop the infection, which is you. The game is Spiderman Web of Shadows Prototype.

The game plays a lot like Web of Shadows, you can use your powers to change costumes, your infection allows you to use web like appendages to pull enemies to you and you toward objects. The game even starts out like Web of Shadows, days in the future with all your abilities and then flashback to the beginning of the infection. Unlike Web of Shadows, though, you don’t make choices that outcome the game, the missions are pretty much linear, even though the gameplay is in a sandbox style. Also what seems almost standard in a traditional sandbox style, your past is a mystery that you unlike by consuming specially marked enemies. Through these encounters you discover how you got your powers and people along the way who may or may not be willing to help you.

The gameplay has some issues. When you are targeting an enemy, sometimes it will automatically target a different one without you pressing any other buttons. Plus there is no way to lock onto a target and let go of the button. Also in one of the bugs I found, I could still control the camera, after I consumes a military soldier, although the game wouldn’t go forward and I couldn’t move.

Overall the game is a solid 8 out of 10. If you like sandbox style games, this is a game you must pick up and play.
