It's been out a few days now, and we're still getting blown away by Insomniac Games' Spider-Man 2. From the fluid web swinging, to the satisfying combos, to the variety of upgrades - it's a masterclass in gameplay.
But what really sets it apart from other AAA blockbusters is the story, brought to life by its stellar cast.

Where do you know the Spider-Man 2 cast from?
So, where do we know this cast from? Well, let's start with the web slinging hero himself (well, one of them): Yuri Lowenthal. (For those of you worried about the face change, rest assured that it's still Lowenthal's voice.)
He played Peter Parker in the previous two games, and he's also appeared in Netflix's Arcane, and as the English voice for Sasuke Uchiha in Naruto. He's gaming royalty, having voiced the Prince in 2003's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
The other Spider-Man, Miles Morales, is voiced by Nadji Jeter. He played Miles in the previous two games, and he also voiced the same character in the 2017 animated Spider-Man series. In gaming, he voiced Sam in The Last of Us.
Returning as Mary Jane is Laura Bailey, another gaming icon. As well as playing Abby in The Last of Us Part 2 (which won her a BAFTA), and Nadine in Uncharted, she's appeared frequently in the D&D web series Critical Role.
As for other games, though, her CV couldn't be more impressive, including: Gears of War, Skyrim, Fallout, Persona, Infamous, Halo and Borderlands, to name just a few.
Tony Todd, playing Venom, might be a newcomer to the series, but he's an acting veteran. His first film role was in 1986's Platoon, and he soon jumped to stardom as Kurn in Star Trek: The Next Generation and as Ben in the Night of the Living Dead remake.
No stranger to gaming, he narrated the classic RPG Legend of Dragoon, and has appeared in Dota, Call of Duty and Half-Life: Alyx.
Graham Phillips is known for his TV work, appearing in The Good Wife. He also played Ben Tennyson in the film Ben 10: Race Against Time.
Jim Pirri is another film vet with a foot in gaming, having played Angelo Bronte in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Stephen Oyoung, returning as Mister Negative, has appeared in Terminator: Dark Fate, and he also voiced Red Hood in Gotham Knights and KK in Ghostwire: Tokyo.
Another returning performer is Tara Platt as Yuri Watanabe. She's also voiced a whole bunch of iconic gaming characters, such as Setsuka in Soulcalibur and Anna in Tekken. She's a Naruto alumni, too, providing the voice for Temari!
Mark Whitten has appeared in prominent games such as Deathloop and Exoprimal, and Natasha Ofili - reprising her role from Miles Morales - has appeared in the TV show The Politician, as well as the movie Creed III.
Leandro Cano is another TV veteran, having starred in Without a Trace, Castle, and provided voice work for the Tekken anime.
Corey Jones, as well as appearing in the previous game, has provided voice work for another superhero game - inFamous: Second Son.
Erica Lindbeck, known for her work in Cyberpunk 2077, makes her Spidey debut as Black Cat, and Noshir Dalal - who voiced Rain in Mortal Kombat 1 - plays Mysterio.
