Summary: Let me get this outta the way, I love this game. It's really fun, the graphics are great, and the characters therein are well represented. The reason I rated it as such is because the PS3 version of this game utilizes the "six-axis" controls in a really gimmicky, crappy, kind of way.
Summary: BOTTOM LINE: It's great for most kids under 10yrs old. As a fan of Marvel comics, I loved to see some favorite characters on screen. Once I got past the initial moment of watching different characters do their moves - it was DOWNHILL FROM THERE.
Summary: Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a great game, but only when you have some people to play with you. The cooperative mode can be fun, but I definitely prefer the arcade mode because each player is given a score afterward and this will give you bragging rights if you score higher than your friends.
Summary: This game would have been cool on Sega Genesis, but the aimless wandering and pushing buttons until the bad guy is dead got old real fast. Graphics are pretty cool, nothing amazing though. I had trouble picking out Iceman from some of the bad guys, they looked too similar.
Summary: *Sigh* Someday comic-book fans will get a well-thought-out and well-controlled video game, until then, Marvel Ultimate Alliance will have to do. Good selection of playable characters, but abyssmal writing (some of the things these characters say are REAL groaners), choppy camera, and button-mashing...
Summary: I am a fan of the Marvel Universe. From a young age when I used to watch the X-Men cartoons, right through to watching Avengers and loving it last year. However, I'm not exactly a hardcore fan who reads all the comics and knows everything about the universe.
Great value, great fun if you're anticipating having friends round
