Spider-Man 2 is now available and while most players agree the sequel is nothing short of a masterpiece, there have been some complaints it simply isn't long enough. 

While it supposedly takes the same duration to complete as its predecessor, 2018's Spider-Man, the game does feel a little shorter and that's disappointed those who wanted to spend countless hours in this corner of the Marvel Universe. Then, there are those who argue that they'll take quality over quantity any day of the week. 

Talking to BBC, Spider-Man 2 Creative Director Bryan Intihar shared his take on the debate. 

"For us, it really comes down to the experience we want to deliver with the quality we want to hit," he explains. "Obviously, there's a certain level of, 'Hey, someone's going to spend this much money on a game', so we want to give them the experience that's worth it."

"Our job is to make sure that you feel no matter how long it is, it's worth that money, it's worth that investment."

Having played Spider-Man 2, we'd agree with those remarks, though it's definitely a title which will leave you wanting more. The hope right now is that Insomniac has DLC and a Spider-Man: Miles Morales-style spin-off (hopefully revolving around Venom) planned, but as things stand, absolutely nothing has been confirmed. 

During a separate conversation with Skill Up, Intihar dropped some hints about a possible Spider-Man 3.

"I think...if Spider-Man 1 [and Spider-Man: Miles Morales] was like our Iron Man and Spider-Man 2 was like a [Captain America:] Civil War, where do we go?" he pondered. "Where logically do we go from there? I think it’d be pretty epic. But you know, we'll see..."

While Insomniac is currently working on Wolverine, we'd be shocked if Spider-Man 3 isn't already in the very early stages of development (especially given the early success of this second instalment).

We'll keep you updated as we learn more. 

"Spider-Men Peter Parker and Miles Morales face the ultimate test of strength inside and outside the mask as they fight to save the city, each other, and the ones they love," reads the game's synopsis, "from the monstrous Venom and the dangerous new symbiote threat."

"Explore an expansive Marvel's New York with faster web-swinging and the all-new Web Wings, quickly switching between Peter and Miles to experience different stories, epic new abilities and high-tech gear."

"Wield Peter's symbiote abilities and Miles' explosive bio-electric powers in battle against new and iconic Marvel Super Villains," it continues, "including an original take on a symbiote-infused Venom, the ruthless Kraven the Hunter, the volatile Lizard, and more from the Marvel Rogues' Gallery."

Spider-Man 2 is now available to buy worldwide.
