It looks like taking and refining the awesome swinging from Spider-Man 2, mixing it with Sunset Overdrive's parkour traversal, and throwing in Batman: Arkham-style combat and stealth, but with more flashy Spider-moves and environmental interaction (one gameplay video showed Spider-Man tossing some fools around, and then using his webbing to pull some scaffolding into them as they tried to advance on him). It looks like it may even edge out the Arkham games, but we'll see. Well, not me, I won't see. People with PS4s will see.

It seems like there's not a lot in the way of Spider-Man for Xbox anymore. None of the old games are compatible with the One. The only games on the One are the tie-ins for the Andrew Garfield movies, and those aren't even offered in the Xbox store anymore, so you'd have to buy a physical copy.

I thought I might download some of the older Spider-Man games (I never played any after Ultimate Spider-Man) for PC, but Steam doesn't offer them, either. And physical copies are super expensive on Amazon ($130 for Web of Shadows... why?).

I decided to just illegally download Web of Shadows, but it just wouldn't work and would give me an error dialog box any time I tried to start it up (and Googling around, it looks like this is a common problem for people). The gods don't want me playing Spider-Man, I guess.
Have you tried emulators?

for example PS2 has several Spiderman games

play them for free

Does anyone remember the Spider Man game for the first movie that came out in ~2001 for Gamecube/PS2? That was one of the first games where I remember thinking that the movement itself was fun. Swinging around and climbing up buildings was awesome and kind of unlike anything I had played before at that point

Oh yeah, I had the game for the first Spider-Man movie. I loved it as a kid, though I think the one for the second movie, with the free-roam and physics-based swinging where your webs actually anchor to buildings instead of just the sky, essentially made the first obsolete for me.

Though weirdly, the first one still had better graphics. And when you beat the game, you could play it again as the Green Goblin, with his glider and bombs and shit. That was awesome

Spidey 2 was where it was at. First time I ever felt someone realized the potential of what a free-roam game could do. I'd barely ever feel like fighting bad guys, just enjoyed swinging around the city and performing stunts.

The Mysterio fights were also bloody hilarious.

I thought it was going to be a letdown stacked to the rafters with quicktime events but after watching the tech demo of the movement controls in action i'm actually starting to get pumped.

I got it for Christmas 2002 and my brother and I sat slackjawed in front of the TV for days on end even though we both sucked at it just admiring the lighting.
