Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 :: Xbox 360 Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 21, 2009
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 improves upon the first game in every way, with better graphics, more varied and interesting locations and less laughable voice acting to make it worthy of a weekend’s worth of time with up to four of your friends.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 improves upon the first game in every way, with better graphics, more varied and interesting locations and less laughable voice acting to make it worthy of a weekend’s worth of time with up to four of your friends. If they can’t make it in person, you can always go online and play with them through Xbox Live.

The Gang’s All Here

Ultimate Alliance 2 features 24 playable characters from the Marvel universe. Standbys from the last game include the usual suspects: Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America and Wolverine getting together with new additions from the X-men such as Gambit and Jean Grey plus solo heroes Daredevil and the Hulk. Every character’s powers and abilities can be upgraded throughout the game, which adds an RPG-like element to gameplay. They can also get together in combat to create “Fusion” attacks that combine the powers of two characters into a super-destructive move. Even with 24 characters though, one of your favourite Marvel superheroes is bound to not have made the cut.

Repetition, Repetition, Repetition.

Even though Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 improved on much of what plagued the first game, and features fun playable characters with cool special attacks, a few major issues keep it from being an amazing game. The first would be repetition. This game has very little play variety and is fight-run-fight from start to finish. The second problem is that beyond the new environments and story it feels very much like an upgrade on the first game but with a better camera and aesthetic. If you and three of your friends enjoy senselessly beating up evildoers for hours on end, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 has plenty to offer you and you would definitely enjoy the time you spent; what’s here is done well, just unsatisfying.
