[Top 10] Coolest Spider-Man: Miles Morales Gameplay Features

Coolest Spider-Man: Miles Morales Gameplay Features
My spider-sense tells me you should duck

Do you want to feel like one of the greatest superheroes of all time? 

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a game that strives to make you feel like you’re the webhead himself and manages to maintain that feeling for the entire game. 

This is all thanks to the amazing gameplay. 

In this article, I’ll go over the ten coolest gameplay features in the game that are guaranteed to make you feel like the next friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!

10. The Power Of Venom Shock

Spider-Man + electricity = cool.

We all know Peter Parker’s powers as Spider-Man. Super strength, spider sense, web swinging, and wall-crawling. Now imagine having all those powers plus more. 

That’s what it’s like playing Miles Morales. 

One of those extra powers is Venom Shock. A power you discover early in the game that lets you paralyze enemies just by touching them. 

One of the coolest things in this game is sneaking up on a random bad guy, touching the back of his  head with one finger, and watching him crumble to the ground. 

Plus, as you play through the game, you’ll get even cooler venom powers such as Venom Punch and Venom Smash.

9. You Can Go Freaking Invisible 

Can spiders camouflage themselves? Who cares, this is awesome!

As fun as it was swinging around as Peter Parker in the original Spider-Man game, playing as Miles has one major advantage. 

Miles can turn freaking invisible. 

This is a power you get about halfway through the game that lets you completely camouflage yourself by pressing Up on the D-pad.   

You can only go invisible for about ten seconds, but that gives you enough time to sneak up on a foe  or get out of a sticky situation. 

Be careful, though. There are some enemies that can still see you!

8. The Glorious Performace RT Mode

Raytracing is a must.

Do you prefer Fidelity Mode or Performance Mode when gaming? 

With Fidelity Mode, you can play your games in stunning 4K, getting the best out of your console and TV. This includes raytracing, allowing you to see reflections on every surface while swinging around. 

Unfortunately, with this mode, the game's frame rate gets capped at 30 frames per second, making the gameplay sluggish.

With Performace Mode, you get a smooth-as-butter 60 frames per second but lose all the 4K features, such as raytracing. 

With Spider-Man: Miles Morales, you get a third option: Performace RT mode. 

With this mode, you get to swing around in 60 frames per second while still enjoying some of the 4K features, such as raytracing. There will be fewer pedestrians on the street to make up for the use of RAM, but who really cares about that? 

It’s not quite the same stunning visuals of Fidelity Mode, but Performace RT mode is an excellent middle ground that makes the game even better.

7. Cooler Swinging Tricks

It’s a good thing he’s got sticky fingers.

In the original Spider-Man game, Peter Parker could do cool tricks in the air while zipping from building to building. 

And as much as I love Pete, Miles has him beat in the cool department. This includes the tricks he can pull off in the air. 

If you hold down Square while in the air and press Up, Down, Left, or Right, you will pull off some really cool tricks. This includes pulling a phone out in mid-air and doing the classic hands-behind-his-head pose from the Miles Morales movie. 

You’ll be swinging around New York a lot while playing this game, so you might as well do it in style!

6. The Insanely Awesome Cutscenes

Thankfully, Miles makes his own suit a few scenes after this. 

How awesome would it be to PLAY a Marvel movie instead of just watching one? 

That’s how good the cutscenes are in this game. 

Peter and Miles chasing  the Rhino through a busy mall. Awesome. 

Miles trying to keep a broken bridge together with just his webbing. Awesome. 

An excellent ending with a moment that can be put up there with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2? Very awesome. 

There are scenes in this game that can be put up there with the best MCU movies.

5. That Busy Spider-Man Life 

One of the only ways you can impress a cat. 

A Spider-Man game only works if it makes you feel like you’re really Spider-Man. This game pulls it off by constantly distracting you from your objectives. 

I’ve read hundreds of Spider-Man comics, and it’s common for Peter Parker to juggle his crime-fighting life with his real life. 

This game does its best to try and distract you with tons of collectibles to find, such as time capsules, postcards, and sound samples to form a mixtape with your uncle. 

Plus, there are plenty of side quests and random crimes to stop around the city. 

If you’re looking for a current-gen  game that makes you feel like Spider-Man, then this is the game to play.

4. You Can Pay Your Respects To Stan Lee

The great Stan Lee, nuff said.

In 2018, we lost one of the most important people in comic book history, Stan Lee. We wouldn’t have anything Spider-Man related without him, and that includes this game. 

Stan Lee makes a cameo in the first Spider-Man game in a restaurant during a scene with Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson. In this game, if you go to that same restaurant, you’ll find a gold statue of Stan himself. 

The restaurant you need to find is Mick’s Dinner. You can find it by taking the subway to Central Park and heading for the Upper West Side. 

Make sure to press X near the statue to pay your respects. Excelsior!

3. You Can Climb To The Top Of Avengers Tower

Wait until Stark hears about this.

  Even though the Spider-Man games are not connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you can still find the MCU version of The Avengers Tower in this game. 

You can find Avengers Tower in the Upper East Side district. Not only can you find it, but you can web your way all the way up to the top of the building!

If you’re a big fan of The  Avengers, you owe it to yourself to get to the top of Avengers Tower and jump off at least once in your life.

2. That Beat 

Miles look’n fresh with his headphones.

  One of the coolest things about the first game was the classic Spider-Man music that would play every time you jumped off a building and swung around the city. It never got old and made the experience even better. 

That music mechanic is back for Miles Morales, but this time, you get a fresher beat that also never gets old. 

Plus, a few needle drops in the game that fit the tone perfectly. 

So when you’re zipping through New York, make sure to crank the volume up!

1. The Suits

Catches get-away cars just like flies… 

Continuing the tradition of the first Spider-Man game, in Miles Morales, you can collect different suits to rock  during the game. 

There are 19 suits to find , each with a separate ability to help you fight crime. 

You will find gold suits, futuristic suits, and even a suit with a cat in a backpack (an excellent side mission explains that one). 

For the most part, the suits from the original game are better, except for one suit in this game. The suit I’m talking about is the coolest in the entire series. 

The Into The Spiderverse Suit. 

Not only does this suit look exactly like it does in the Into The Spiderverse Movie, but you can add mods to the suit to make it even cooler. 

Add the Vibe The Verse mod to the suit to slow down the frame rate of the suit itself. Using this mod makes the suit have a glitchy effect to it, exactly like it does in the Spiderverse movie series. 

It’s an amazing effect and the coolest thing in the game.
