Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2
8 June 2012
Excerpt: X-Men Legends was the first game in a series of action RPGs that put some of Marvel’s well-known heroes and eternal villains at opposite sites in an explosive, button-mashing game. Raven Software saw things bigger for the next-generation with more heroes and better gameplay.
Excerpt: Marvel Ultimate Alliance is back, with 24 characters to choose from, tightened controls, and Fusion powers. Fusion powers are available to all the characters in the game, and are done by linking up the powers of any two heroes.
Conclusion: While Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is generally a very capable game, it did notice some glitches that hindered the gameplay in certain areas. The worst of these was a particular boss fight that is interrupted by a cut-scene.
Conclusion: Overall, though the single-player is short it has certainly been improved on since the first Bad Company and the online multiplayer is truly second to none. Have DICE reclaimed their FPS throne? It is hard to say for sure, but this is definitely their best game for some years.
Review: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (Microsoft Xbox 360)
10 March 2010
Summary: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is more of a relaunch than a sequel. When Activision passed the reins to a new developer they took a big risk that rarely pays off. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is a solid game, but it lacks any major updates over the original to make it a must-play title.
Conclusion: If you couldn't stand Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Ultimate Alliance 2 won't change your mind but if you love super heroes and want to see a bit more from your favorites or if you'd like to find some new capes to look out for, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is a good choice.
