There's no denying that Insomniac Games' Spider-Man is a game of the year contender, or that it is probably one of the finest comic book video games ever to release. The studio illustrated an immense understanding of the Marvel mythos back in September (we called it a "pure, wonderful, affecting love letter" to the wall-crawler in our review), but their first wave of post-release content for Spider-Man - titled, the City That Never Sleeps - is unfortunately struggling to recapture the same magic of the main release.
The first entry, The Heist, positioned a new version of Black Cat in a starring role and, despite a strong story and some interesting features, fell short in several areas. That's partly what makes its successor, Turf Wars, such a frustrating piece of content, because it improves on certain aspects of that first piece of DLC while taking several steps backward in the process.
It's very much a mixed bag, but it's not all doom and gloom. There's still plenty of charm to Insomniac's rendition of the Marvel Universe, and though Turf Wars does feel like something of a stop-gap until news comes of a Spider-Man sequel, there's enough in this latest piece of content to satiate even the most fervent of web-heads out there.
