Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 - PS2

Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
X-Men Legends expands into the whole of the Marvel universe with a game featuring more heroes, villains and superhero brawls than a hundred mighty Marvel crossovers.

The lowdown:
It was hardly the deepest action role-player around, but with X-Men Legends, developer Raven found the perfect balance for most comic book fans, between simple action and an expectedly convoluted storyline featuring as many characters as possible. This is basically the same game turned up to 11, as you initially take control of Captain America, Thor, Spider-Man and Wolverine in a battle against Dr Doom and his newfound allies. The graphics are perhaps not quite as detailed as they could be but the scope of the story and the variety of the settings more than makes up for it. Considering how much the game packs in there’s few Marvel diehards that will be disappointed by this.

Most exciting moment:
Although the game works perfectly well on your own it’s really at its best when playing with friends. Depending on the system, you get both online and four-player options, with each player controlling a hero. Many of the superpowers can be combined into a single special move making team work a must (until there’s a fight over a health power-up anyway).

Since you ask:
Although all the obvious heroes are included as playable characters some of the more obscure unlockables include Black Panther, Daredevil, Nick Fury and Silver Surfer. There’s also four exclusive characters for the PSP version (including Captain Marvel and Hawkeye) and more for the Xbox 360 such as Colossus and Moon Knight.

The bottom line:
The ultimate celebration of the Marvel universe in interactive form.-HARRISON DENT

4.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous Alliance 5 Nov 2006

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ive been reading marvel comics etc for years and I'm 40 now .

This game had to be brought and to be completely honest I am glad i did .

The graphics are excellent and the game itself , even when you go through those annoying times like with most games , you still have to have one more go . Assembing your team is a great idea and you really do have to think who is the best character etc to do the job in hand , so it gives you that kind of managerial theme as well if you get my meaning .. Myself and my youngest son at the moment are absolutely enjoying every minute of this great game and if you have half as much fun as we are then this game is a must for any comic book fan . Roll on Justice League Heros

5.0 out of 5 stars much better than i expected... 19 Mar 2007

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this game was brilliant, there is a wide range of characters to choose from, with unlockable constumes, traning simulations, it is great. good game to play if you are bored and want some fun, once you start playing the game its hard to stop, you get so into the story line.

great graphics, awesome movie clips as you progress through the games levels and alot of epic boss battles.

very very VERY enjoyable game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic,but fun 1 Jun 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Marvel:Ultimate Alliance is not the most complex game out there,and yes,the graphics are a little disappointing,but this game is far superior to Justice League Heroes.

Ultimately,I think it comes down to whether you are a Marvel or DC fanboy.

The gameplay mechanics are,overall,pretty simple.Attack,combo,attack generally does the trick.In fact,it reminds me of the TMNT arcade game of the early '90's,so simple is it's style.

All in all,pretty dodgy,but what saves it is a couple of cut scenes I would pay money to see at my local multiplex,and an overly complicated storyline that does more than enough to hold the attention.

There are various combinations of heroes that deliver special bonuses (the FF obviously,Wolverine,Elektra,Deadpool+Blade=ASSASSINS)although the late,great Captain America is a must choose because of his ricocheting shield ability.

Buy it!JLH may be more fun for the serious gamer(though I doubt it)but if you love Marvel,you'll love this,despite any flaws you may think it has.

The choice of heroes alone,and the option to create your own team is irresistable,unlike JLH where you have a preset 2-at-a-time gameframe.

This is the one!And while there is plenty of room for improvement,this is the one to beat right now,for sheer enjoyment if nothing else!

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh, this could have been perfect... 14 May 2007

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
After playing (and loving) the original X-Men Legends game, I had high hopes for this game, as it was also from Raven software. The depth of this game is awesome, with some great touches that will please the comic fans. What lets this game down though is the graphics; how a game can be graphically inferior to a similar one released two years earlier is beyond me, especially as it's from the same studio. Whereas the look of XML was clear, crisp and "comicy", MUL suffers from that soft-edged blurring that seemed to afflict PS2 games in their early days. It feels to me like the developers spent so long cramming in all the neat touches and different superpowers that they forgot to spend any on a decent interface.

Overall then, the depth and number of characters make this worthwile. However, if you've never played the original XML, you may want to pick that up instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but easy game 1 Jan 2008
By John
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was an avid reader of Marvel comics when this game came out so i was looking forward to playing as some of my favourite super heroes in one game.The game itself is very good,you start off with four already picked heroes in your team but soon you can change these heroes around for different ones.The controls are very easy to understand,there is not much to controlling one character.I found that the game was still a bit easy even on the highest level of difficulty therefore making the game very easy to complete.The game is still very fun with a load of characters to fight and play as.The simulation discs are fun when you get to pick a team to fight with but when you only fight with one person,you usually end up just running through the whole level because there are too many bad guys to deal with at once.The graphics and sound are o.k while the gameplay is really good.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice idea, almost executed perfectly 2 Nov 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well activision had something going with 140 superheroes in one game. Like many of you comic book fans out there i was crazy with excitement over this game. I pre-ordered it like a month before it came out, today, it arrived. I have now completed the first 3 missions and what can i say. The graphics are the biggest let down, there playstation 1 standard at some points, whcih is really disapointing, but the game play itself is a lot of fun. One of my favourite features is customizing your characters with different powers and costumes (shame the graphics ruin the costumes though). Anyway, depsite the shoddy graphics, i'd still recommend this game to anyone with a love of comics. Dr Strange is in it!!! So in the immortal words of Stan Lee....."nuff said"
