Product Description

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

Manufacturer's Description

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is an all-new action/RPG where players create their Marvel dream team from the largest roster of Super Heroes ever in an epic quest that will determine the fate of Earth and the Marvel universe. For decades, Earth's Super Heroes have opposed evil in their own cities, and on their own terms. But now, Dr. Doom and a newly reformed Masters of Evil the greatest collection of Super Villains ever assembled have plans for world domination, and the heroes must band together to defeat them. Playing as some of the most revered Marvel characters, gamers will embark on a dangerous journey across exotic terrain and well-known comic book locations like Atlantis, the Shield Heli-Carrier and the Skrull home world in an attempt to defy the world's most notorious Super Villains. Created by Raven Software, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance lets players control the most powerful Super Hero alliance the world has ever known.

Experience the full scale of the Marvel universe with a combined cast of over 140 popular comic book characters. Players create, customize and control their ultimate four-person strike team, selecting from an initial roster of 20 playable Super Heroes, including Spider-Man, Wolverine, The Thing, Captain America, Elektra and Thor and battle notorious Super Villains including Dr. Doom, Galactus and countless others.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance offers gamers total team customization. Players can form their favourite Marvel dream team, create their own team name, team icon, team vehicle and establish a team reputation as they play through an original storyline hand crafted by renowned game developer Raven Software and Marvel's own C.B. Cebulski. Additionally, players have more control over levelling up each team member to their liking, or upgrading all team members together to keep their heroes balanced.

With new and dynamic combat capabilities, Super Heroes can now fight while airborne, on the ground, and even submerged underwater as they traverse through 17 exotic locales and play out some of the most legendary comic book battles from the Marvel universe. Players will have access to a host of fighting tactics and accessories, including melee combat moves such as grappling, blocking and quick combos, new chargeable Super Hero powers, more environmental objects that can be used as weapons, and unique one and two-handed weapons.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance features a unique storyline where players not only determine the fate of Earth, but also control the fate of the Marvel universe. The missions players accept, the objectives completed, and how players interact with other characters throughout the game will have a direct impact on how the story plays out.

In addition to the epic single-player storyline, players can also battle the world's most evil Super Villains alongside friends in both on and offline cooperative story modes. This robust multiplayer component also features a Competitive Mode where the game keeps track of various in-game stats so players can see how well they stack up against one another affecting the amount of experience points and how equipment is distributed.

Advanced Gesture Based Combat System One of the most important implementations on the Wii is the 'Advanced Gesture-based Combat System which pushes the capabilities of the Wii-mote and Nunchuk controllers. Players can even chain gestures together to create very powerful attack combos.

Motion-Sensing Controls With the Wii-mote, players can swipe upwards for upper cut punches and kicks, swipe down for stun attacks, sweep left or right for trip attacks, jab forward for heavy attacks and shake for quick, light attacks. Further, attack powers are custom for each character and are mapped to the Wii-mote gestures, and the Nunchuk can be used for picking up objects, throwing, blocking, dodging/rolling as well as movement via the analog stick.

Audio/Video Marvel: Ultimate Alliance for the Wii will support 480p Progressive Scan, full 16x9 widescreen format and Dolby surround sound.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but could have been better 15 Jan 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There's not a lot of depth here. It's great fun wandering around whacking away at the Marvel Villains and their henchmen but there's no problem solving really to speak of (not so far anyway). If you want that for the wii then you'll already have Zelda which is stunning.

I've not owned a console since a Sega mega drive because it seemed the focus was on better and better graphics and more and more complex controls rather than fun games that you can pick up easily. The wii looked like fun in a way the PS2 and xbox never did. So for me the controls make this game. They take some learning but you can keep going beating villains to a pulp without knowing all of the jiggling and swiping combinations. I'd much rather beat off a villain by swinging the stick around at it rather than trying to master some obscure combination of buttons. I'm sure it makes it less precise but I really couldn't care. I just want to enjoy playing the game and the physical exertion really draws me in.

I'm giving it three over all because it doesn't really have the depth I would have hoped for. I'm sure my love of Marvel heroes is what makes me so happy while I play it, and if it had just been X-Men i'd have been happier. If it was DC heroes i'd probably think it was half as good! The graphics aren't up to Zelda standard, but they're good enough. Overall, as a Marvel Fan, i'd give it 4 out of 5. If you're not you'd probably want to save your money for now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, but you need to persevere 7 Jan 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'd bought this game for the PS2 and loved it, so was eager to find out just how more interactive it would be on Wii. To begin with it was very frustrating - the actions needed to get the super heroes powers to work takes a bit of getting used to. After a while though, it all starts to come together, and if you really can't be bothered with the physical movements, you can revert to button control.

You can tell this game wasn't designed with the Wii in mind, but having said that, it's good fun once you get into it.

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS GAME IS GREAT!!!!!! 9 Mar 2007

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I first read the other reviews on Amazon.co.uk I was in two minds as to whether I should buy this game, however this game is the best game I have for my Wii and this is why.

This game isn't as challenging as Zelda or Red Steel. It isn't as skillful as Splinter Cell or Sonic, but it is the most fun.

This game is something which wont blow you away with it's graphics or confuse you with it's ridsles. It is fun. This is the sort of game you can pick up and play. It is pretty simple, but by no means easy.

I not a major fan of any marvel characters (except the X-Men) but that isn't important this game give something no other Wii games can. The right compination of unique controls and real smash'em up game play.

When you come home from a long day at work or school it isn't easy to sit and plough through Zelda's puzzling dungeons or be bothered to work stealthily through enemy bunkers in Splinter Cell it is however easy to pick up this game and have a great time.

Many critics say this game doesn't have enough depth and I disagree. With 16 levels and plenty of side missions so should you.

I really would advise anyone and everyone to buy this game. Regardless of who you are and how old you are this game is enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, slow delivery 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a really good game, my son loves it. There are loads of different levels and characters so he will be able to play it for a long time.

It arrived packaged well and was in pristine condition but the delivery did take a while, over 2 weeks which is too long for a Royal Mail delivery so it mist be at the distribution warehouse that the delays are caused.

Nevertheless, it was a really good price compared to other sites so the delay was worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great game 23 Jan 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a good game, i liked how you can construct you 4 man super hero team featuring Captain America,DeadPool,Blade,Iron Man and wolverine and many others, there is around 25 differnt characters you can play as,each with thier unqiue moves and sayings.It definatly has re-playability, especially how you can unlock new superhero's throughout the main game by searching levels or helping other superhero's. Also being able to unlock new fighting moves for you characters and costumes for your superheros such as the old retro one's and the up to date costumes gives the game new levels for replay. Also a great touch is the way that if you do or dont do missions it affects the way the story pans out in the end which is a good touch, this keeps you playing.

The only gripes i found for this game was the fact i was looking for a game where i could stand in front of my tele and use the wii remote to use cool moves, such as maybe thrusting the remote to punch, etc,but in the end your usually end up sitting down playing it just button bashing, which is a bit of a let down. Also the levels are a bit samey, dont get me wrong there are some cool levels such as Askard,carnival and a level underwater, but the rest just seem to be castles,bases and fort's which all look the same and its just like the set's in the levels just repeat over and over.

Overall a great game but the only reasons i gave it 4 stars is just the Wii stick and the levels. I would easily pay 15-20 for this game but no more.
