Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2
11 November 2009
Excerpt: Three years ago, Activision tasked developer Raven Software with expanding their successful action-RPG franchise, X-Men Legends , to encompass the entire Marvel Universe. The result was Marvel Ultimate Alliance , and while comic and action-RPG fans agreed that the overall product was enjoyable, it also suffered from balancing issues, and was also riddled with technical glitches.
Excerpt: If you enjoyed previous Marvel games, you'll find more of the same here. Graphics are improved, there's a great roster of superheroes to play with and their powers can combine to produce new 'Fusion' attacks. But crashing bugs, simple repetitive gameplay and a lack of polish are its kryptonite, preventing this from being a super game.
Pros: Gameplay is still as fun as the last game. Good roster of superheroes and villains. Engaging story to play through. Filled with cool artwork and Marvel trivia for fans. Some great looking Fusion attacks.
Cons: Very buggy and unpolished. Repetitive gameplay. Laggy online experience. Fusion attacks can also become repetitive. RPG elements have been streamlined to oblivion. Not as much fun as previous games in the series.
Summary: Helaas weet Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 niet genoeg te imponeren om lang te blijven boeien. De superhelden uit het Marvel-universum geven zeker wel wat sfeer aan de game, maar het spel zelf straalt dat verder niet uit. De gebieden zijn kaal, kil en leven vrijwel niet op. Daarnaast zijn de dialogen vrij standaard en kun je er niet van op aan dat de cutscenes hoogstaand weergegeven worden.
