Currently the game is at a stellar 91 on Metacritic

Played the first level before work, and it was so good. I'm ready to dive in this weekend.

I just received my copy. Nonsense that it has a 36 gb day one update patch. Thanks for killing my data cap, Sony.

LOVED the opening, that grabs you immediately for an awesome intro wild ride. So much fun so far.

I hope you all have fun with the game. I'm still working on God of War and Horizon Forbidden West. I hope to pick it up around Black Friday if there's a sale.

I don't know if it is my controller or what the but the web swinging is all sorts of fucked up for me. I swing and it sometimes won't register a new web shot so I am constantly falling to the ground.

that's weird about the swining. it feels as good as ever to me. i am about 34% of the way through playing on the highest available difficulty. combat is a challenge at times but the game is just as fun as the previous ones and i like that they simplified the suit tech.

I’m gonna blow through SM1 and MM to get to this. Want to play something while it’s somewhat fresh. Though I’m only 35% on SM1.

My swinging feels a little off too. Sometimes I'll mistakenly throw a line behind me a quickly do a 180.
