Forget “Sex & the City” — HBO’s version of Manhattan never let Carrie swing majestically from the skyscraper rooftops, like some sort of magical bird.
In the brand-new “Spider-Man” game for the PlayStation 4, you’ve got free reign to fly across vast swaths of Manhattan’s iconic skyline. From Battery Park to North Harlem, the West Side Highway to the FDR Drive, Spidey’s able to soar through the air and take in the sights.
What’s most impressive isn’t just the scale, but how closely that virtual version of Manhattan matches up with the real thing.
