Excerpt: proved to be a sleeper-hit, bringing together an army of Marvel Comics' stars in a chaotic action RPG for up to four players. Building on the success of its predecessor, this year's endeavors to be bigger and better, adding even more characters and a devastating new attack system, and adapting a popular story arc from the comics.
Excerpt: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 picks up (in terms of game play) where the original game left off. Players get to take on the role of their favorite Marvel super heroes, and dismantle as many of the bad guys as they can. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is essentially Gauntlet done with super heroes taken to a higher level. Families should note that this game is rated ‘T’ for Teen, meaning this is for the older members of the family only.
Exciting action game where superheroes join forces.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is an action adventure game based on characters from the Marvel Comics universe. Signature characters such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Wolverine team together to thwart attacks on Earth. Players will take down enemies, ranging from robots to humans, with a variety of punches and kicks as well as with superpowers. The combat is pretty intense, but never bloody or graphic.
Excerpt: Following up on a well-received Wii launch title, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 again blends the popular world of Marvel comic book heroes into a familiar story that any Marvel fan can instantly appreciate. Mashing together the Secret War and Civil War stories from Marvel Comics, this next title keeps faith to the licence while improvising enough changes and updates to freshen up common beat ’em up gameplay.
Conclusion: Some licensed games are a labor of love, exhibiting profound respect for the source material. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, on the other hand, doesn't exhibit the kind of care and reverence a beloved brand merits. It's inelegant and underdeveloped, and it represents a major step backward when compared to the original.
Pros: Large cast of great characters, Fusion attacks look cool, Local four-player co-op.
Cons: Unlocking extra characters isn't worth the frustration, Bland, claustrophobic level design, Terrible AI, Jittery camera and other glitches, Pointless motion controls and no support for alternate controllers.

En clair, tous ces personnages, les héros comme leurs adversaires,...
Summary: In den letzten Jahren wurden die Kinosäle weltweit von einem Genre überschüttet, das zuvor aufgrund mangelnder Technik nicht in dieser Art möglich war. Die Rede ist selbstverständlich von Superheldenfilmen, die seit langem einen Boom erleben. Dabei schaffen es nicht nur die großen Superhelden, wie Spider-Man, Superman oder Hulk auf die große Leinwand, sondern auch Filme mit Thor und Captain America sind in Planung.
