Game Difficulty Settings of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

Difficulty Levels

  • Friendly Neighborhood – You cannot get knocked out in battle. This is the easiest difficulty setting.
  • Friendly – Although you can get knocked out in this mode, the combat is still fairly easy, allowing you to focus more on the story.
  • Amazing – The normal difficulty of the game. Enemies are aggressive, more tanky, and dish out a bit more damage. So, you need to be fairly familiar with the game’s combat mechanics if you want to play through with this difficulty.
  • Spectacular – If you really want a challenge, then this difficulty setting might be for you as enemies will be absolutely brutal and come at you with everything they have. They are also a lot harder to take down. So do expect to die a lot unless you’re absolutely confident in your combat skills.
  • Ultimate This difficulty setting is only accessible once you complete the game once. Therefore, it goes without saying that enemies in this setting will do tremendous amounts of damage to the point where the only way to actually beat them is to not get hit at all.
