The launch day for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 has finally arrived, and I can't wait to start playing the anticipated Playstation 5 exclusive sequel. Almost every online review so far has suggested this is the best-written story in the Spider-Man series yet, with bigger and badder villains to fight, and for the first time ever, two playable Spider-Men to take them down. 

I haven't had the chance to pick up my controller and play Spider-Man 2 yet, as my day job takes priority, but as much as I'm excited to start web-slinging once I clock off, it got me thinking that at a price of $69.99/£69.99 – how much value and enjoyment am I really going to get out of this game?
