Added DiffLines:

* CatharsisFactor: Tired of the Hero/Menace system? Replaying missions allows you to choose the time of day and you aren't bothered by the system, although random crimes wont happen either. Just swinging around the city can be surprisingly calming. Just don't head to the objective. (And optionally turn off voiceover volume and subtitles.)
* MostAnnoyingSound: Spidey wont shut up in free roam. Luckily, he can be silenced with the voiceover volume setting.

* {{Sequelitis}}: From a critical standpoint. The movie currently sits at 53% on Rotten Tomatoes, compared to its predecessor's score in the 70s, making it the worst-reviewed ''Spider-Man'' movie of all. Major criticisms being that the film is stuffed with too many plotlines and characters just like ''Film/SpiderMan3'' as well as spending too much time setting up its own sequels.

** A behind-the-scenes case, with the fact the film underperformed at the box office. It actually only underperformed in the sense Sony were [[ThisIsGoingToBeHuge unrealistically optimistic]] about how much it would earn (they thought it would get past a billion dollars, despite none of the Spider-Man films reaching that point previously), and that it earned less than previous Spider-Man films; it still earned $700 Million, surpassing most of the Phase 1 MCU films (only ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' actually surpassed that), DC's ''Film/ManOfSteel'', and all the X-Men films save for ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' and ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'', making it actually about average what the MCU films earn each instalment. Despite that, however, people generally talk about it like it was a giant bomb and a financial failure and use this as a point of criticism for why Spider-Man needs to be given back to Marvel, a mentality that Sony themselves seem to have taken concerning the film given what happened after. That being said, due to problems with the marketing, the overall profit for the film was still less than $100 million, which isn't all that impressive when the budget of the films is around $200 million.

* IdiotPlot: The entire subplot about Harry's blood relies on Harry and Peter not realizing the obvious compromise for the situation: Have Oscorp scientists thoroughly analyze Spider-Man's blood sample to make sure it's actually safe before they inject Harry with it. This way, they can be sure there won't be any dangerous side effects, thus putting Peter's worries to rest. [[http://io9.gizmodo.com/the-amazing-spider-man-2-the-amazing-spoiler-faq-1572405038 As io9 pointed out]], this is especially bizarre since the initial argument about the blood ''happens in the Oscorp building itself''.

** The very blatant [[SequelHook sequel/spin-off baiting]] ended up becoming one of the most mocked aspects, and a symbol of Sony supposedly not knowing what the hell they're doing.

* {{Narm}}:
** When Gwen falls to her death, the web Spider-Man throws to catch her takes the shape of a human hand.
** The chanting in the song "My Enemy" can get a little ridiculous, mainly since one of the lines being repeated is "he hates on me".
*** Becomes almost ten times as narmy when you notice, like [[WebVideo/YourMovieSucksDotOrg Your Movie Sucks]] did in his review, that the line [[{{Mondegreen}} sounds hilariously close]] to [[SuperMarioBrothers "He hates-a me."]]
** The villains. Rhino is an [[LargeHam intentional]] [[NarmCharm case]], but both Electro and the Green Goblin are supposed to be serious. Turns out it's quite difficult to take a guy that looks like [[Film/BatmanAndRobin Batman & Robin's Mr. Freeze]] or a guy whose makeup resembles Warwick Davis' ''Film/{{Leprechaun}}'' very seriously. Though admittedly, they do have their intimidating moments as well.
** Electro's first time in Ravencroft -- he's tortured by a German scientist named ''Kafka'' who puts on classical music before the experiment. If that sounds silly already, wait until you hear [[ClicheStorm the dialogue]].
** In the beginning of the film, Max Dillon is so stereotypically nerdy that he actually becomes a more ''subtle'' character once he turns into a glowing super-villain that shoots lightning bolts.
** When Max is getting turned into Electro, there's a big close-up of the electricity fixing the gap in his front teeth. What was the point of that?!
** While the original trilogy had Uncle Ben appear posthumously and actually have a role in Peter's development, this movie does so with Creator/DenisLeary as George Stacy...just standing there and staring. Or sitting in a squad car...and staring. This is the source of the "always watching" MemeticMutation above.
** Harry Osborn's {{Wangst}}y behavior during his attempts to appear sympathetic, combined with the fact that he's sporting a haircut akin to that of Peter's emo persona from the infamous ''Film/SpiderMan3'' movie, make him come off overly dramatic to some.
--> Harry: You're a fraud, Spider-Man!
** Gwen's graduation speech is criticized for basically telegraphing her death at the end of the movie with absolutely no subtlety whatsoever.

* OlderThanTheyThink: One of the things Beenox have hyped up is the improved web-swinging mechanics from the previous game, frequently pointing to the fact that the webs Spidey swings on are attached to buildings this time around... Something that was in ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2'', ''[[VideoGame/SpiderManTrilogy Spider-Man 3]]'', and ''VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan''.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Harry Osborn is either a sympathetic individual trying to find a cure for his disease or an entitled angst-wanking and arrogant creep. [[spoiler:His "Strawman Has A Point" moment detailed below helps those in favor of the former interpretation, and those in favor of the latter cite the murder of Gwen Stacy as proof of the other. Even before then, his default response to learning that Peter cannot help him use his DNA to make a cure is to demand a price and lash out at him.]]

* HoYay: Peter and Harry certainly give off a certain vibe. The scene with Harry and Gwen in the elevator makes Harry look like a jealous romantic rival.

The whole plot, really-[[BelligerentSexualTension the affectionate jibes]], the childhood-friends reunion, the tragic illness-none of it would be out of place in a romantic dramedy. At least, [[spoiler: up until Harry goes full DIY trying to cure himself and attempts to kill Peter.]]
** On the bad guys' side, Max's IJustWantToBeLoved tendencies give a bit of this vibe to his and Harry's relationship. Max's awed face when Harry tells him he needs him....
--->'''Harry:''' I need you! Please! [[WhamLine I know what it's like]] [[BirdsOfAFeather to be thrown away!]] ''Please'', Max!
