    Overall, getting a 100% completion in the DLC clocked me in at around four hours, with the story taking about two-to-three to work through. Given the quality of both the story and the side content, picking it up and its follow-ups too should be a no-brainer. Or at least it was for me. But then, I’m the sick fool currently playing through a new game plus on Ultimate difficulty. I’ll let you know how that goes when we check in on our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man next time.

    The Heist is a good bite-sized morsel of content that kept my attention throughout, and I'm excited to see where the rest of these chapters go. I just hope the Insomniac team can keep things interesting throughout.

    The first Spider-Man DLC is short, but a great deal of fun thanks to a great story. It feels like the start of the story though and is not stand-alone, except for the side-missions. Those offer a change of pace and make the package worth it in the end.

    A fun DLC that doesn't make anything new, but still entertain during the 3 hours that it lasts.

    As the first piece of DLC for Marvel's Spider-Man, The Heist offers a few exciting story missions and some very cool extras. That being said, it's very short-lived and the fact that it ends on a cliffhanger is sure to annoy many fans.

    More than anything, The Heist leaves you begging for more, and I guess that’s what the idea was. It’s just enough more Spider-Man to get you back into the swing of things, but it leaves you hanging with an abrupt ending and minimal new side content. But at only $10, it’s worth it to get back into Insomniac’s lovingly created New York.

    More of the same. All of the content feels recycled from a main game you're probably already burnt out on anyway. It doesn't help that the few new bits – suits and an enemy type – feel lazy and uninspired. The only reason to grab this DLC is for more of the story, which is as well done as ever, if a bit short – clocking in at around three hours max. If you're patient, grab it in a future sale just so you can see what happens next.

After a month of searching the city for small time thugs to beat up, it is great to have a new story to play through again. I am excited for more stories every month. If this were a subscription service to play Spiderman.... I would pay.

    A jogabilidade é boa, parecida com a da serie arkhan.
    Talvez o que prejudique um pouco é a pressa em fechar o Ato 3. Acho que ficaria melhor colocar os bosses isolado, daria bem mais destaque uma luta solo contra scorpion ou o rino, mas no mais o jogo é muito bom e superou minhas expectativas.

    A bit of a letdown, The Heist is a more-of-the same kind of DLC that lasts slightly less than 4 hours if 100%-ed.

    A bit of a letdown, The Heist is a more-of-the same kind of DLC that lasts slightly less than 4 hours if 100%-ed.

    Story-wise it's a bit bland and is basically a side-quest filler story, just with main-quest-quality cutscenes. The only plot twist is seen from a mile away, and Black Cat is just a more tamed version of Batman's Catwoman with muffled levels of sexuality and flirtiness. It doesn't really help that the DLC ends with a cheap cliffhanger and a "to be continued".

    Gameplay-wise it's more of the same, really - some combat arenas with 1 new annoying enemy type (the minigun dudes just block every attack except for a finisher), some stealth rooms with the ability to call Black Cat for a takedown (Hi, Arkham Knight) to make them even easier, and some copy-paste side missions. It's still enjoyable thanks to the very strong core gameplay mechanics, but I'm a little disappointed that we didn't get a new gadget or skills.

    It is a strange decision to even split the City That Never Sleeps story into 3 episodes while they run a continuous story, and have it out just a few days before RDR2, which will definitely hurt the sales. While I don't regret buying the digital deluxe version with all the DLC in it, if you don't have it, I'd personally recommend to wait till all 3 episodes are out and play them at once.

    Хорошее дополнение, жалко только, что разделили на несколько частей.

It has one of the best stories told for the character, avoiding the tropes of the character's history, varied activities and characters that leave an impact on you, and all felt meaningful.
    Marvel's Spider-Man's (PS4) first DLC though (The City that Never Sleeps Part I: The Heist), is at best a 6/10. It is incredibly short (100%'d all of the new content in around 4 hours), features NO boss fights, rehashes challenges from the main game for a different character (who you saw in one mission in the base game and she is dreadful-- Screwball), has nothing meaningful happen in the story, attempts to pull off a disappointing take on a twist, and leaves Peter in no different of a state than when he started the DLC.
    DLC 2 had better be better or I'll be ANGERYBOI.

New enemy is annoying to deal with. new missions are not very fun and feel like work. And the new crime feels like a assassins creed “side mission” chore. Not worth your money and it wasn’t worth mine. Get it on sale.
