The Civil War Of The Ultimate Alliance (Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 Review)

Posted by cyberpfalcon on February 3, 2011

Sometime ago, about a month before I started this blog, I wrote a review of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for my friend’s blog. For the sake of completeness, here it is:

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is awesome! It’s an enjoyable game with a good story. It also doesn’t get too RPGy, which some people complain about, since the last few Ultimate Alliance games had more RPG elements. However in my opinion, I found this to be better, since this means that there aren’t useless powers to accidentally give points to. And seriously, its a superhero game – we want the action.

Overall, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is a good experience, both single player and multiplayer (by that I mean offline co-op, I haven’t tried online yet). The only complaint I have are the loading times, but it’s not that bad. Loading times are only around half a minute or so… which is far better than Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

I’m quite happy that I preordered Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, since it looks like they were sold out very quickly, and I got Juggernaut! While Juggernaut isn’t one of my favourite characters, he’s actually quite fun to use, so that’s good. And I’m pleased with how the developers included some of the lesser known heroes instead of only the popular ones. Plus, its not an easy game either, but it strikes a good balance between being easy and too hard. You should definitely try out the game.
