Default How bad is this game for arachnophobes?

So, sadly, I'm really bad when it comes to spiders. The jungle setting seems perfect for them to be featured in the game

My question to anyone who played Shadow already, are there many spiders in the game? And if so, are they normal in size, or are there some giant, car-sized ones as well?

I don't want to buy a game at full prize which I might not finish because of my phobia, so I'm looking for info how avoidable the little monsters are

I can't believe this. I detest spiders with every fibre of my being, I am scared of them and can't stand even the tinniest ones, but I feel no fear of spiders in games. It's really weird.

No worries at all.

I played most of the game and the spiders that are there are barely visible.

In most cases, you will notice only the icon to collect poison from them that appears above them and that's it.

I haven't been to all the side quests and challenge tombs yet, so unless there are some surprises there, I don't think you should get worried.

Thanks for clarifying

I have been wondering too, as an extreme arachnophobe who can't do games with giant ones. Seriously I've only dragged myself through Underworld probably 3 times and I probably won't again haha

Oddly enough, I feel the same. I’ve been suffering from arachnophobia my whole life and I can’t even fathom the idea of a spider touching my skin, but I can play games or watch movies without repercussions. I may have an “eww” reaction at worst. I think this only happened once, during a specific section of Bloodborne.
