Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2

 

When I got my Wii, one of the first games I got was Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and it was good. Though the RPG label frightened me a bit (that's a genre I simply can't get into) it was a blast to play, because the RPG elements were subtly integrated...

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...

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (Xbox 360) Review

 

With Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, the franchise passes from Raven Software to Vicarious Visions. With new features like the Fusion attacks, has Vicarious created a successful installment for the MUA series?

The new Quick Menu allows in-game on-the-spot character upgrades without having to bring up the entire menu and pausing the game, which Vicarious says should eliminate some annoyance from multiplayer. A nice addition in theory, but a player browsing...

It's that wondrous time of year again, where all of our beloved developers begin to manifest the greatness that was on display at this year's E3 conference. Otherwise known as happy-go-funtime for gamers, the fall rush is upon us, raining...

Although it falls short of its predecessors, Marvel Ultimate Alliance II provides a solid experience that is more accesible to the casual gamer.

I've always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the X-Men Legends/Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series. See, I'm a gigantic comic book nerd - and the thought of teaming up any heroes I want is like a fanboy dream come true but I've never really...

Rounding out this incredible cheating experience, is Cheat Happens exclusive trainer for the Wii version. In this trainer, you'll get everything from unlimited fusion powers, health and energy to the ability to stop time and even one-hit kills. The...

It's a tricky thing when green-lighting a sequel that the original development team won't be around for. This goes for any medium, but maybe most importantly for a video game. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 has fallen into this trap, but only slightly....

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is passable at best. In answer to my original question of whether Vicarious Visions could handle the big stage? Well, I wouldn't say I booed them off, but I was definitely checking my watch for when the main act would be on.

Review: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (Microsoft Xbox 360)

 

Speaking of the two sides and the graphics, individual mission briefings are no longer told with the standard intro scene. Instead you see a graphical representation consisting mostly of silhouettes wearing costumes and wire-frame, cutaway schematics...

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...

It's a shame it's more of the same, but at least they fixed the damn bugs. I'll eventually pick it up, but it looks like it might be something I get early 2010

The world's greatest superheroes have come together again, this time to tear each other apart, in an amazingly fun Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2. There are few things more satisfying than zapping enemies with super powers while playing as your favorite...

A solid game. Nothing groundbreaking or extremely impressive, but very fun and entertaining.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 Review (Xbox 360)

 

games that preceded it. Coupled with the ability to choose from a gallery of well-known characters from the Marvel universe made it a must play for serious comic-book nerds everywhere

Another wretchedly designed element of the game is the dialogue engine. When you talk to people, you can choose between aggressive, diplomatic and defensive speech options. What these mean outside of unlocking achievements for doing them enough is...
