Insomniac's Spider-Man has been met with exceptional critical acclaim, an impressive sales record, and the adoration of fans worldwide.
This is due in large part to the outstanding swinging mechanics, the brilliant combat, and the depth of knowledge that Insomniac has about Marvel's New York. But despite all of this, it is the characters that populate the game's expansive map that make it feel alive, and make it an absolute joy to play.
While making your way through New York, the player encounters a number of Spider-Man's greatest villains and closest friends, listens to police radios and podcasts that make the world feel complex and vast, and of course slip inside the spandex to inhabit the mind of the wall-crawler himself.
However, some characters were much more impactful and complex than others, and Insomniac will surely be adding to that depth with their upcoming DLCs and inevitable sequels, so let's see where the characters rank thus far.
23. Rio Morales
Not too much to say here, really. Rio serves as a great plot point for Miles’ story and will likely play a bigger role as his version of Aunt May in the inevitable sequel, but as for this game, she doesn't have a hell of a lot of depth or much to do.
That being said, the performance of voice actress Jacqueline Pinol is very good, and her delivery of her lines during and after the tragic terrorist attack that results in Jefferson Davis’ death really strike home the emotional impact of this plot point.
