Spider-Man is the best superhero game that exists right now. It earns this title for so many reasons. Not just the superbly realised world of New York. Not just the simple yet challenging character action combat. Not even the intuitive webswinging that anchors the whole game. Spider-Man is the best superhero game because it understands the genre better than any so far. It is a game about being a hero, and doing good.
It’s impossible to divorce Spiderman Homecoming from the circumstances of its creation. After Sam Raimi’s Spiderman 1&2 were excellent, 3 was merely okay and then the miserable Amazing Spiderman 1+2 came on to the scene, it was hard to deal with the fact that the world’s most popular superhero wasn’t going to be good on the silver screen again. Then, Sony and Marvel managed to come together just before Captain America: Civil War to bring the webslinger back to our screens as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Virginia begins by telling the player that the events of the game have been compiled from notes and case files to create the play they are about to experience. Like a play or film, the game lends itself to a variety of interpretations, a situation which the game wildly encourages. Virginia is one of the most blatant attempts by a developer to blend cinematic techniques and games conventions. To the credit of 505 Games and Variable State, they have definitely hit the mark.
