The lights are on
Our third Test Chamber episode of the week takes a look at The Amazing Spider-Man, which should actually be called The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as it is a direct continuation to The Amazing Spider-Man film. Be warned, our brief look at the beginning of this game will ruin the movie for you. Why Sony, Beenox, and Activision thought it would be a good idea to release a sequel to the movie before the movie even hits theaters is beyond me. If you don't care about the film, stick around for the entire episode. This is a much different Spider-Man game than we've seen before. As Game Informer's Ben Reeves points out, some of the new ideas work, while others are not backed by enough variety to deliver excitement.
And if you think this is it for Test Chamber this week, brace yourself: We'll be back with another episode tomorrow! Also, our Super Replay recording is moving along ahead of schedule.

**BRAAAHHHH**. guess I'll watch this after i see the movie
hmm idk this looks pretty cool, might check it out sometime
This game is a 7.5
Hey, Reiner, in answer to your Avengers question, Cap and Iron Man are discussing Loki after Phil's death:
"Loki wanted to make it personal, he wanted to make it hurt. He is a full tilt diva, he wants to beat us and he wants the world to see him do it. He wants a monument built to the sky with his name plastered on it..."
That told Stark that Loki would use Stark Tower (Stark's own monument to himself) to power the Teseract. He knew Loki would make it personal, and he saw the similarities between them. Loki's taunt before, about Stark's work being a warm light for all humanity was also a hint. He wanted to use Stark's humanitarian work to fuel Earth's destruction. Hope that cleared it up for you.
Doesn't looks bad.
Looks like a great game
That boss battle looks amazing!
*skipped right to that part, to avoid any movie spoilers* :)
Digging all the content this week! Thanks and keep it coming!
thank you Game Informer for saving me the 60 bucks
The review made me sad, I was hoping for an awesome Spider-Man game. I'll probably still end up grabbing it, but at this point I may wait for the price to drop. $60 isn't exactly a cheap investment.
I for one thin it looks pretty good from what i've seen of it so far
Does anyone really not know what's going to happen in The Amazing Spider-Man movie? I mean, without watching it, I can pretty much assume that Spider-Man's not going to die and that he's going to defeat The Lizard. It's not one of those movies where people should go in expecting to be surprised by the plot or anything; it's all just about the experience.
Man, this game just looks dull. I won't be playing it any time soon.
Great episode of Test Chamber. Spider-Man looks good enough for a playthrough at least so I'll either rent it or wait until a price drop. It does suck that it ruins the movie.
I do like the suit better than the other movies but he should have dyed the shoes blue or red. As is in the white he looks like he's wearing sensible mom shoes.
