Depends you are fan of the series or not. Based on reviews of the Chinese version, it is not easy, second half gets frustrating and late game difficulty spike (have to use tricks like save-load, run thru the level to see what's ahead then die and do it for real). I saw some video back then, actually quite funny in the presentation, very much like anime.

A couple of review from HK sites (in Cantonese, with Chinese sub):

i only like the 1st one in the series.

so can i go to the shops and say, i dun fancy graphics , sound or gameplay, i just want to know how long this game will last me? if less than 20 hours, can i get 50% discount? :s13::s13::D

then bro you should get dragon quest xi if you are looking at game length.

think if you going for 100% completion, you should be getting more than 20 hours out of it.

to be honest don't know why many people raving spider-man like the second coming of christ :s11: Maybe they are hardcore spider-man fan :s11: Its good but its not like its has never done before. nothing revolutionary/inspiring.

Imo i prefer batman arkham series/ infamous second son etc.

i never play spiderman before on ps3 and ps4. spiderman has been released less compare to batman series, hence it's quite refreshing and it's story line is quite good as well.

Should have gotten arkam night during the warner sales. And wait for spider man price to drop. Badman series is really good.

100% will take much much longer than that. By the time you maxed level of all characters (remember, every time you level up, you get a skill point), there are still many nodes on the skill tree you do not have enough points to unlock. You will need to farm a few hundred seeds of skill (mainly from a gold stone statue enemy on rainy days, something like that iirc). This takes a long time (and it's luck dependent).

I have done that. Then I looked at other attributes of the chars (speed, defense, magic defense, etc), I started farming for other seeds. Oh boy, I gave up. Only maxed some attributes for some chars, no way I am going to grind for all the seeds. Some are easy (there's one that I can mostly just rubberband my controller to farm), but some are very rare drop.

Well, depends what you consider 100%. Any way, I didn't 100%, still missing a couple of horse racing rewards, cos I hate that minigame.

I assume Erik is the thief character (first person to join you). He has one very useful move, which is to replicate himself. This is one of the most important skill for later bosses as it basically lets him attack multiple times. I don't remember him as aoe dealer though, he's mostly using daggers (iirc, poison or sleep daggers paired with replication is the key).

You will also need him to steal materials. He is the only party member who can do that. You will need to be stealing lots of rare materials if you want to craft everything and 3 star them.

bro, you just need to use pep power electro light..

mc, jade and erik to use pep together..

this pep power gives 100% drop rare item chest after battle.


u either use pep pop which cost 200k gold at post game cobblestone

or u get pep pip for 25k casino token from casino octo


so see depending u can farm gold faster or casino token faster.

max only important attributes..

once character attack hit 999, u don't need to max strength liao.. most of the time yr best weapon will hit 999 attack easily.

just max relevant stats.

jade for example can't use magic, so no point farm magic mending (healing) and magic might seed (magic dps)

once u got erik and unlocked his best skills, you don't need other dps.. i even turn mc into a healbot.

rest of the team become support class just to support him.


true 100% is getting all the accolades and 100% complete your bestiary..

and +3 all the gear.. (your gear 100% listed)

i hate the horse racing game. you pretty much need a perfect run to win..

divide.. hit 3 times.. together with his poision/divide/victimzer you can deal tons of damage.. (veronica aoe damage is second.. and cost too much.. Magic burst - use all her remaining mp..

bad thing is poison proc is due to rng. thats why i have slyv to do poison attack with dagger to proc the poison.

if can buff his attack and debuff boss def, his damage goes even higher.

aoe, switch to boomerange use divide and his boomerang skill.. hit all enemies..


you can switch gear in battle without turn used.. very useful.

as mentioned above post use the pep power halleujah for 100% rare item drop.. no need to steal.

i use steal for normal items only.

erik is the most useful char in late game once you unlock the divide ability. aoe dealer is when he is using boomerangs but damage is quite little.

i use him with dual swords as i find it is more useful against bosses than dual daggers. for high damage with daggers, you need to inflict status effects which is quite difficult as most bosses are resistant to them. having dual swords and using divide with fatal slash deal consistent damage to bosses.

i find it quite difficult to use veronica against bosses. 2-3 hits and she died. have to waste a turn to resurrect her.

bro.. my aoe hit 3k damage to each enemy. need to use divide/double down skill with good boomerangs.

if want to min max damage have to use dagger, that's why slyv is there to help inflict poison. double the chance together with erkik. make use you learn the skills that give u higher chance to inflict status.

if want to min max damage, dagger is the way to go. the 6x multiplier damage is too big to ignore.

veronica is just to buff my erik with 50% atk and sap the boss.

make sure u put veronica at the last slot for less aggro..

or use Hendrick forbearance + another skill to reduce damage to eat all the damage every turn.
