Spider-Man blev endelig fremvist i al sin pomp og pragt under årets E3-messe, og selvom modtagelsen samlet set må siges at være ganske positivt, så fandt fans også en række problematikker med demonstrationen.
En af disse var spillets "webslining", altså heltens måde at bevæge sig igennem byen på, men disse der var utilfredse med dette under demonstrationen kan ånde lettet op, for Insomniac har allerede ændret dette aspekt.
Under D23's Level Up! The Walt Disney Company's Video Game Showcase tog spillets instruktør, Bryan Inithar, scenen, for at sige følgende:
"As Peter [Parker] says in the video, we got this. Yes, nailing the web swinging is crucial. It's a requirement. Even since E3 2017 which was a month ago, we've already improved our web swinging and it's easier to gain speed now. Yes, we've heard all the feedback online - we listen to you guys, a lot! And we're constantly looking to improve the game. We want to continue to have that sense of flow, fluidity, no obstacles too big for him to overcome. For traversal but also in the combat, which is evolving every single day. You saw the gadget, the tripwire, right? Well, he can stick it on objects but he can also stick it on enemies and if they are close enough, they'll just slam into each other. So we want to have a lot of gadgets that will allow him to have fun during combat as well."
