Iguana & Rhino in new Amazing Spider-Man trailer

15 Mar 12

Computer games based on comic book heroes have a patchy history, as do computer games based on movies. So when you get a computer game based on a movie based on a comic book hero, expectations aren’t high.

However, developers Beenox are showing off some pretty cool stuff for their upcoming game, The Amazing Spider-Man, set for release here on July 6, and you can’t help but hope this could do for Spidey what Arkham Asylum did for Batman.

Apparently the game is going to be based on an open world model, allowing the player to engage in a variety of side missions in addition to the main storyline.

Check out the trailer and pics below and let us know what you think – are you looking forward to the game?
