Insomniac's Spider-Man game has been out for a week now, so you've probably had time to make your way through the web-slinger's gorgeous main campaign, battling every crowd-pleasing comic book villain along the way.
It's fair to say, however, that Spider-Man's boss battles have been a tad divisive among critics and fans alike, namely for their sometimes QTE-heavy nature and simplistic, phase-based attack patterns. Given the care put into the game elsewhere, these encounters do tend to be pretty hit-and-miss.
That said, they are more often than not at least passably entertaining - if sometimes rather abrupt - as set-pieces which help flesh-out the world and the super-powered entities residing within it.
Not every boss is a home-run by any means, but the late-day battles in particular won't be forgotten anytime soon.
