Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered: Advantage and Disadvantages

Developer Insomniac Games revealed that they still have a lot of plans for the upcoming remaster for the 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man. However, not all fans are happy with the new features of the remaster.

Insomniac Games recently revealed that they are working on a Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered edition for the PlayStation 5. Most fans are divided about the game’s noticeable changes since there are a few advantages and disadvantages to them.

Let’s look at the good and bad things that fans have been clamoring about the upcoming Spider-Man remaster.


The most significant adjustment made in the game is the visuals. Aside from integrating ray tracing and better light effects, the game received a lot of performance and graphics improvements. With all these changes combined, the developers guarantee that the game’s already deeply engaging experience will even be better than before.

Since the game will be released on Sony’s next-gen console, fans recommending that the developers should add new features to cater to the much-improved DualSense controllers. The enhanced DualSense controllers are guaranteed to upgrade a player’s gaming experience by incorporating haptic feedback and other new features.

Looking at how the controller will react to the characters’ movements will aid in making a new immersive experience. Marvel fans who haven’t got the chance to play the original should grab one since there will also be a lot of new things to explore.


If there is something fans hate about the Marvel’s Spider-Man remastered edition, it’s that the look for Peter Parker has been altered. Bryan Intihar of Insomniac Games revealed that the change in casting was inevitable to make the game more realistic.

The developers shifted in an image of John Bubniak to Ben Jordan as the new face of Spider-Man in the original game. However, most fans are disappointed with the new look.

The most significant change regarding the casting is that the hero will look a lot younger compared to the original. Some players are confused about why his new looks now seem to resemble the same age as Miles Morales. However, in the story, Peter Parker should now be and old veteran protector of the city of New York.

Since the entry of the Spider-man franchise in the movie industry, the hero has been represented by multiple actors. It started with Tobey Maguire who played the role of the web-slinging hero in the first Spider-Man trilogy and was followed by Andrew Garfield and the most recent, Tom Holland who reprised the role as teenage Spider-Man. They were all well-received by fans but this is not the case for John Bubniak since he became the very image of Spider-Man in the video game industry, at least in the PlayStation 4.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is exemplary in terms of visuals and performance. However, the new look for Peter Parker is obviously not popular for fans of the game. While it will still be giving the same experience, fans still prefer the original Peter Parker’s look over the improved one.
