New Amazing Spider Man 2 gameplay footage

by: Sean Colleli -

Beenox was on hand at GDC last week and apparently the Escapist was there to capture some new gameplay footage of The Amazing Spider Man 2. I really like what I'm seeing here--it looks like Beenox has built upon the foundation they established with the first game (which I really liked) instead of scrapping it all and starting over. There are some new enemy types, the combat looks more involved and supposedly the web-swinging is more realistic--no more swinging above the tallest buildings or central park, with webs apparently sticking to the skybox!

I am curious as to why the Escapist decided to dub the theme music from the Sam Raimi Spider Man trilogy over this footage for, you know, the new movie game. Don't get me wrong, Danny Elfman's score for those movies was excellent, but they could've at least used James Horner's soaring theme from The Amazing Spider Man, or Gerard Marino's unique theme from the first game. Maybe somebody at the Escapist is still bitter about the reboot?
