Summary: Got it to play with a buddy, but it seems better to go with another copy, something like a collectors edition or something that has the dlc characters in it, as they aren't downloadable anymore.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance (PS3): Best offline multiplayer
11 January 2009
Summary: Anyone familiar with the online game "City of Heroes" will recognise the format that marvel has gone for. This is a 3D platformer giving you access to pretty much every character from the marvel franchise but with one serious advantage.... its the only offline multiplayer beat 'em up on the PS3 at the moment. I was looking for something to play with my friends on a friday night and this definitely fits the bill.
Pros: 4 people on the same screen, 100+ characters, switch characters quickly
Cons: Limited arcade style play - don't expect to find out why wolverine is so angry
Summary: the game i got with my ps3 i wasnt dissapointed with it at all. very much in keeping with the old x men legends games of the ps2. you play the super heroes of the marvel series who have to join up in unison to sort out those pesky little super villains who had the idea first and have been causing all kinds of havok as of late. all of your favourite marvel characters will be at your disposal, from the x men to the fantastic four and right down to elektra or black panther.
Excerpt: This game had a good variety of characters to choose from, but there was a lack of button combinations to use all the techniques available. Your characters have a combination of light and heavy attack combos but only up to three hits; you can also grab and throw your enemy in different ways.
Conclusion: i thought this game was not just that great i dont get the appeal i turned it on played for awhile and i think thats where it goes the graphcis are very poor and the view leaves something to be desired if you have ever played theme hospital well its the same veiw and to be honest worst or same graphics id give this a miss
Conclusion: i will give this 3 stars because i fort it was good at 1st but then i got bored of it i will not play it again because its all the same moves and stuff its only a good game at 1st then after a little wiyle you will stop playing it like me but i gess some people like games like this its just not my tipe but this 1 is better then the 2nd 1 whats just come out ok
