The Symbiotes are planning an invasion of Earth and it’s up to you to save the planet. The Symbiotes are evil beings that bond with humans to create creatures that are even more powerful. It’s going to take quick reflexes and fast thinking if we’re going to survive.

Spider-man is an amazing character, his abilities translate so well into the game mechanics. You can swing through huge cities using his web powers.
