Spider-Man PS4 The Heist Review: 4 Ups And 3 Downs

With Black Cat, a brand new Spidey villain and new missions aplenty, is the DLC worth it?

Insomniac Games

Spider-Man PS4 is just over a month old, and the first entry in The City That Never Sleeps DLC - entitled The Heist - has just released. Clocking in with just under three hours worth of content, it provides players with a worthy follow-up to the game's story, albeit with not quite the same amount of depth.

Picking up some time after the events of Spider-Man's main story, players are introduced to Felicia Hardy - the femme fatale also known as the Black Cat - as she returns to New York with Hammerhead, who heads up one of the Maggia families in NYC. It soon transpires that all isn't as it seems, and with deception the name of the game, Spidey soon finds himself in the midst of an escalating gang war, all whilst trying to make sure Hardy doesn't get herself killed.

That isn't all though. The Heist comes complete with side-missions involving a newly-released Screwball, more crimes to tackle, and a sub-plot involving an old NYPD detective. It isn't without its flaws though, and while the first entry in The City That Never Sleeps is itself an enjoyable piece of content, players may wish to hold onto their cash for just a little longer.
