Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (Xbox 360) Review

17 March 2010
  • 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. Fusion powers are a big part of what the game is being sold on; well that and a mix of two of Marvel's most popular storylines. Secret Wars, and Civil War.

True achievements
10 January 2010
  • 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. NOTE: There was a DLC pack for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 which is NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON XBOX LIVE!!!!!! This pack came with achievements so you cannot 100% this game if you don't already have the DLC.

  • Summary: The idiom “lost in translation,” comes to mind here. While adapting one of the most epic comic events in recent history, some things were bound to get cut. Unfortunately, those ended up being many of the comic’s more spectacular action moments and nearly all of its meaningful social commentary. Thankfully the nuts and bolts of this environmentally destructive action/RPG haven’t changed much.

  • Excerpt: This one is really tough. I've been a huge fan of the Marvel action/RPG games since the very beginning, the PS2 classic X-Men Legends. The two X-Men: Legends games and later, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, took the console Diablo-style experience to a new level, by draping the rich tapestry of the Marvel universe over the tried and true action/RPG gameplay that has kept so many of us up all night looking for that last weapon or piece of armor.

  • Excerpt: It has been a good year for superhero video games. Both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Wolverine are two recent examples of how games in this genre are not always rushed ‘flash in the pan’ titles. So when Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for the Xbox 360 arrived at my home office my expectations was high especially considering the demo we watched at E3 in Los Angeles earlier this year was something I found quite impressive.

  • Conclusion: While I enjoyed playing this game, it simply flew by (I completed my first run in just over seven hours,) and the teases of characters who make appearances but aren't playable were disappointing. It's probably time for the Marvel action RPG concept to get a thorough revamp, making it as exciting as it was in the past. After Batman: Arkham Asylum, the bar's been raised for comic-book games, and another effort like this won't get Penance any more well-known.

Game Over Online
14 October 2009
  • Excerpt: …a slightly watered down version of the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance featuring a brand new unsatisfying civil war story line and a new over-hyped fusion power mechanic. There’s nothing really new about the super hero beat-em-up—Raven Software has been doing them for years going back to the X-Men Legends games—and there doesn’t have to be anything really revolutionary about them to make them fun.

  • Excerpt: For the most part RPG fans and comic book readers are one in the same. Yet there is a small segment of comic book readers that have given up on gaming and some gamers have given up on comics.
