superhero games they were always very loved by users, but they did not always manage to have the same quality as their adaptations, both the originals in printed pages and in many cases in the big screen adaptations. Few were the video games based on these licenses that managed to stand out for their quality, and not for the simple fact of allowing us to control our favorite hero.
We could say that this changed, practically definitively, with the Batman Arkham franchise, which managed to give us a very interesting and well thought out approach to the adventures of the dark knight but in video games. Over the years, we have received more titles of this nature, and many others have been announced, but one of the best managed to replicate the success of this saga was Marvel’s Spider-Manthe title developed by Insomniac Games and published by PlayStation exclusively for its consoles.
A few months ago it was officially announced that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, the remastered version that arrived for PlayStation 5, would receive a port for PC. We could say that this was sung, given the great approach that PlayStation was making to this platform and the success that the Insomniac title reaped, but this did not make it stop being a surprise.
We have already been able to play this version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, and then we will tell you if this is worth it.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered: all the information
|Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered|
|Platform||PS5 and PC|
|Release date||August 12, 2022 (PC)|
|Gender||Action and adventure|
|Idiom||Texts and voices in Spanish|
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is the remastered version of the original title developed by Insomniac Games that features the famous wall-crawler. This was originally released for the PlayStation 5 bundled with the Ultimate version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and now, on August 12, 2022 its PC version will be released. We are facing an action and adventure video game set in a huge open world that corresponds to the city of New York, the classic setting for the adventures of this character. Both the texts and the voices of this title are in Spanish.
Experience with Marvel’s Spider-Man on PC
Before officially starting, it is necessary to mention that we will not focus on the title itself, since we already analyzed the original title in its day. On the contrary, we are going to leave this aside a bit (although we will also talk about it) to focus a little more on the more technical section and how this PC version of Marvel’s Spider-Man works.
An opportunity for more people to enjoy Marvel’s Spider-Man
We have already commented on it in the introduction, and we have also said that we were not going to get into the quality of the video game in general, since this title was analyzed at the time, but I do think it is necessary for us to review the strong points and weak of this adventure before moving on to the more technical section, so that people who did not play it in their day know what to expect.
In general, we can say that we are facing one of the best (if not the best) adaptation of Spider-Man to video games. It achieves this basically thanks to a balancing system that makes fast travel a rarely used featurea story that manages to catch and exciteand a fight that reminiscent of the Batman Arkham saga, and that is very well resolved. In addition, we also have to mention its open world as a point in favor, since we are facing a very lively city of New York and that will evolve throughout our adventure.
For its part, if we have to highlight something against, I could only say that if you are looking for something revolutionary, you will not find it here. It is a video game that does practically everything it does well, and very well in most cases, but it does not particularly innovate. If you like open world video games and you are a fan of Spider-Man, this is the perfect video game for you, but you can’t expect anything especially revolutionary either.
In essence, with this I wanted to make it clear that we are facing a high-level video game, being one of the best adaptations of a superhero that we have seen in our genre, but then we will see if this adaptation is on par technically (which I already anticipate yes).
Your friend and neighbor Spider-Man lands on PC, and he does it in a big way
Before starting with this, and since we are going to get more into the technical field, it is necessary to mention that we have played this title on the laptop, which has an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor, an NVIDIA RTX 3050 graphics card, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD, so we more than meet the recommended requirements of the title. In addition, it is also necessary to mention that during our adventure we have tried different graphic configurations, but the most used has been the one that the game itself recommended: all high.
Interestingly, unlike many other titles, the preset made by the title itself turned out to be the most correct, allowing us to play at a stable 60 FPS at practically all times, with slight dips in moments of high action, although these are more focused on some cinematics or situations in which the title makes use of “quick time events”, so we will not notice it especially.
If your case is different from ours, you have a large number of graphic options, so many that it could be one of the video games with the most options that I have seen. This can be silly for people who only use the presets, that is, they only have to put everything on high or everything on low (for example) but it is quite interesting to have the possibility of adapting the experience we want to the maximum in terms of graphics. It is also necessary to mention that those who have a compatible NVIDIA graphics card will have DLSS technology available, which in this case we can attest that it achieves very good results.
Regarding the other configurations that we have been able to test, it is necessary to mention the ray tracing, although it has been improved throughout the analysis process thanks to updates, it lowered the FPS so much that it only manages to compensate if you are one of those people who use photo mode at all times. Despite this, this and other aspects were improved with patches, and therefore it is very likely that this and other problems that we will talk about next be fixed by the time the title is officially released.
Yes, we think it could be a bit more fine-tuned in terms of optimization, but apart from the fact that we already know that the developers are working to make it as optimized as possible for launch, we can say that this is not at all lacking. From our experience, as we have already said, it is a very robust title, which could work a little better, but still manages to give a pretty good experience.
Finally, regarding this section, it is necessary to mention that the graphic quality in the highest configurations is similar to what we had in PS5, can even be a little betteralthough to know this exactly it will be necessary to wait for the experts to pronounce on the subject, making their now classic comparisons between platforms.
Errors that fail to tarnish the final product
We have already talked about what could be better optimized, especially ray tracing, but now we need to talk about bugs or errors that we have found during our adventure through New York.
Luckily, most of these bugs have already been fixed for launch, so we won’t mention these, but there are some that persist as of the time we’re writing this review. Don’t worry, these are essentially graphical bugs, like one that adds colors to the map at certain points, something that is not supposed to happen. Also there are other bugs with strange colors or textures that sometimes take a little longer to load. To everyone’s delight, as we have already said, these are nothing more than circumstantial and They even make it funny rather than get out of the experiencebut it was necessary to mention them.
Luckily, and as we have already said, these errors that we have been able to find will be fixed for the official launch, although we cannot guarantee 100% that these will not be there when you can play it, although yes we can say that they will not be a great inconvenience.
Conclusions and note of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PC
This port will allow a large number of new users to enjoy one of the best exclusive titles in the PlayStation catalog, as well as kick off this saga that seems to be going a long way with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 already officially announced. In addition, these new users will be able to enjoy a port to match, which is not perfect, but if he perfectly complies with what was expected of himgiving away a very good PC experience.
This title will give you about 20 hours of pure pleasure if you are a fan of Spider-Man, and if you have a PC that meets the minimum or recommended requirements provided by the developer, this is as good an option as playing it on PlayStation 5platform where this remastering originally came out.
