Description: For the first time, you can suit up as Spider-Man and see what it’s like to be the world’s favourite superhero. Learn the ins and outs of your brand new Stark Industries upgraded web shooters and master different web types as you race to complete fast-paced targeting trials – but you’ll have to learn quickly… The Vulture is on the loose and coming for you. Sling high above the city in a dramatic confrontation before pursuing Spidey’s deadliest enemy. Based on the all-new 2017 film, the Spider-Man Homecoming VR Experience is a fun and thrilling first-person look inside the world of your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.
Review: Unless you have been living under a rock you might have heard of the new Spiderman film titles “Homecoming”. Well, this is a sort of short VR interactive experience that lets you become Spider-Man! Its starts with you on a rooftop with a Stark tech briefcase in front of you which contains your Spiderman Super suit. Using your motion controllers you will soon be putting on that said suit and flinging webs around like you were a real spider.
For a freebie, I guess this is a fun little experience. Sadly putting on the Spiderman mask at the start is as exciting as it gets. The rest of the experience is blurry, not very playable and over quicker than I can grab a shoe and squash a real spider (which is pretty damn quick let me tell you). But once again I have to look at the free price tag and also acknowledge that this is supposed to be little more than an interactive trailer for the new Spider-Man: Homecoming film. If you love your Spiderman, give this a go. Otherwise, you won’t miss much by not downloading it.
