Eh. I just finished that one last week. It was fine. Only one Screwball challenge gave me issues. Although, I didn't go for gold, only silver.

Also I unlocked the cartoon spidey suit and it's awesome. What's funny though is seeing it in cut scenes. It looked like I was watching Roger Rabbit or some other live action + animation movie. It was weird, funny, and kinda cool.

It's not a difficulty issue, her DLC challenges are dull and uninteresting and poorly designed, and the character herself is INCREDIBLY obnoxious -- her voice is like an icepick to the brain, and there's so. fucking. much. of it. PHOTOBOOOMB!!!! LOL HAAAAAASHTAG THROOOWDOWN!!!!!!

Honestly all the DLC challenges are an exercise in tedium, but the Screwball stuff feels like it was designed only for the sadomasochist set out there that revels in the sexual thrill of slamming their genitals into a car door.

I gave the game another shot, deciding to skip all the side stuff and just go for main game missions, and it got a lot better. I think the bases, the challenges, etc were dragging things down for me.
I had quit right before the Sinister 6 got together, and it got a lot better during that. Still not a fan of the puzzles or the Miles and MJ sneaky sections, though I liked the part you go through Osborne's penthouse - it's like a tour of the nicest penthouse in Manhattan.

I completely agree with you on this and apparently this is how they wanted to translate the character from the comic books, which make sort of sense as it is as obnoxious as people believe stereotypical millennials to be.

I get the ''boring" challenge complaint, but the voice? Turn the volume down .Lol

I guess in the same post where you apparently decided I said it was the volume, and not the content, of her voice that was the problem.
