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.
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.
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.
