Marvel’s Spider-Man: Silver Lining Review

Silver Sable is back in town

Silver Lining, the third and final chapter of “The City That Never Sleeps”, brings back Silveria Sablinova (Silver Sable) who will be our side-kick and the main focus for this chapter.

Like in previous DLCs, this new chapter comes along with new extra challenges, suits and interesting previews of what’s coming up for the sequel.

Allies or enemies?

Silver Sable is back and furious. After Hammerhead’s thugs took control over her International military equipment, she returns to NYC to clean Hammerhead’s mess.

The tension between Silver Sable and Spider-Man is worse than ever. She blames Spider-Man for not being able to keep the city under control, and for losing her tools at the hands of NYC mafia families.

Regardless, she decides at the end to join forces with Spider-man to stop Hammerhead once and for all.

We will get to interact with Silver Sable and know a lot more about her while playing the main quests of this DLC. In fact, one of the best parts of this additional content is her character development.





Extras

Just as before, we will get new suits along with the DLC and of course more of those Screwball’s challenges. The new addition here is the outposts controlled by Hammerhead’s thugs, fully armed with Sable´s goodies.

Given the added difficulty in this DLC compared with the last episode so you may need to consider improving your combos before taking the new outposts. There are few extra side quests you might find, from which one will appear after clearing all the outposts.

The season pass

The whole plot of the season pass is not as good as the main game’s. However, it’s enjoyable due to the character development of some familiar faces: Felicia Hardy (Black Cat), Yuri Watanabe and Silveria Sablinova (Silver Sable), who were already interesting characters, to begin with.

The DLCs also features new in-game mechanics such as brand new stealth sections with Spider-Man. At the same time, there are new ScrewBall’s challenges, deadlier hideouts and outposts, and enemies to improve our skill. Lastly, the season pass offers a bunch of new suits to please every Spider-Man fan’s needs.

As a whole, the season pass content is a must-have if you want to expand your Marvel’s Spider-Man experience. To brief things up, The three DLCs makes up for a good 6 to 8 hours (depending on your skills) full of awesome gameplay and an intriguing plot.

Conclusions

Silver Lining, the third and last episode of “The City That Never Sleeps” is the best of them. New and challenging hideouts/outposts and a very engaging plot. The DLC also features some intriguing surprises that will let you know a little more of the upcoming sequel (I’ll say no more to avoid spoilers). But in the process of giving us a heads up of the future, the whole plot ends feeling “incomplete” because Insomniac needs to keep us in the expectation of more content. 

If you truly love Spider-Man and enjoyed the game, buy the season pass, you will surely enjoy it. Or you may as well go for the new GOTY version of the game released early this month which includes all DLC content available for the game.
