Rated 8 out of 10 by bball42242442 A downgrade from past installments
X-Men Legends was really good, X-Men Legends 2 was amazing (even though it ends like there will be a X-Men Legends 3... and there still isn't one), Marvel Ultimate Alliance was really really good, but Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is... ok. There is a lot less customization this time around. Less costumes, moves, ect. There may be more characters this time around but a lot of the characters are very similar there are only about 5 different fusions in the game, the only thing that changes are the characters involved (Iceman puts ice on rock, Gambit puts cards on rock, ect). The first couple of missions are incredibly boring. You can only use the characters from Intro for quite awhile, finally you can choose who you want to use. Playing online is annoying because people always take forever choosing their character and costume, and wasting fusions. If you haven't played any of the XML series or MUA, then rent them 1st and decide if you want to try this installment or not. Do judge the past installment by this game alone.
Rated 9 out of 10 by CBCKI Marvel ultimate alliance 2
In Marvel ultimate alliance 2 there is more than 24 playable characters with there own powers: Webs, weather control, fire, superstrength, flight, healing factor and much more! Ultimate alliance 2 is an ultimate game based on the marvel civil war. You can use the all new fusion attack where you can target, clear or guide your fusion. For example storm and The Human torch together make a tornado on fire, or wolverine reflects Iron mans laser off his claws. Once you start the game you have 4 characters, Spiderman, Iron man, Wolverine and Captain America, then when you go threw the game you get Storm, Iceman, Daredevil, The fantastic four, hulk, Thor, Songbird, Ms. Marvel and more! You also meet lots of fun Marvel enemies like The Green Goblin, Lady Deathstrike, Electro, Shocker, Titanium man, The Wizard, Multiple man, Deadpool, Venom and the evil Nick Fury. Ultimate alliance 2 is one of the best Super hero games Ever!!!
Rated 0 out of 10 by J_Man757 Curious. DLC list "should be."
In the civil war game you don't get to play as some of the key players i.e: Cyclopse(outside of ps2), Bishop, Cable, and drop songbird and put emma frost since she was running the institue at the time and kept the mutants calm during the big break out. I noticed they put Thor on Registration side along with HULK (why?) , and how come no Punisher for Anti-Reg he would of been awsome. I feel the game will do great but if I could add some DLC characters they would be the following: Bishop Cable Punisher Emma Frost Cyclopse(Ps3,Xbox360) Havok Nitro(He started the Civil War, so come on.) Speedball(Their actions started it.) (Iron Fist alt outfit should of been Daredevil since he played both during it.) Falcon (Caps' right hand man Not luke cage.) MicroMax ( one of the few to die due to the Robot Thor, I wonder if they are going to say if this Thor is fake in game.) Hulking Wiccan K.Dean So thats my list for characters.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ZX6Rallday FANTASTIC GRAPHICS BUT...
The game was developed beautifully...The characters and the environments are stunning....Compared to the first Marvel Ultimate Alliance this is in its own league...The controls are very easy and the Powers of the heroes are just great...The negatives in my opinion are 1.The game is very short...Its only 3 acts long...Compared to the length of the first one this is a real disapointment...They definetly could of made this game alot longer 2.Barely any playable villians...They only have Green Goblin and Venom and if you pre ordered from gamestop Juggernaunt...More villians would of been great in the game.. 3.More costumes...they only give you 2 costumes for each hero...The first one had around 5 or 6...I dont know how they didnt have time to put more costume choices in the game... Generally speaking the game is definetly worth buying but they could of made the story longer and put different heroes to play as..Most of the heroes you play as were in the first game..I hope they come out with a sequel to this game but make it longer and put different heroes to play as
Rated 10 out of 10 by NYJetFan Great Game
I purchased this game yesterday and have only played it breifly. MAA2 has come such a long way since the first AA games. The graphics are crisp and detailed and the gameplay is addictive and fun. The co-op feature is where i think the game really earns its price tag. its so much fun to play with your buddies. me and 2 of my friends were playing it last night and had a blast. the story line is derives from the comic series and will not dissapoint. I only wish that they would let the fans consider who they would like to put into the game. there is still some major charcters who are absent and or non- playable. me personally i would like to see a Frank Castle or Beast. There are some characters in the game that im still trying to figure out why they are there. At any rate the game is stunning and will not disapoint. Go out and purchase this game if you want a game that will be fun to play over and over again.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Torterra69 Gets way too much flack.
This game is amazing, yet it gets way too much hate. First off, the reason its so expensive all of the time is because Activision doesnt print the game anymore because of the poor sales :( And also; its not a BUTTON MASHER!!! Its a dungeon crawler rpg that heavily relies on button COMBINATIONS and COMBOS!! Im tired of hearing this game get hate. I loved every character, every level, every boss, and every second of this masterpiece.
Rated 7 out of 10 by caamaster Okay game but not great
considering the first game in the series was excellent, this game was a bit of a letdown. First of all, the game was very short. I killed the last guy not knowing it was the boss of the game and all of a sudden the credits rolled. Also, there were no cosmic beings like in the first game and no bosses either for that matter. The story only focused on just the main plot and didn't dive into the entire marvel universe as the first one did. It was still a pretty fun game with a lot of characters, and the graphics were great as was the soundtrack, but considering it was a sequel, it should have kept what made the first game great. The other thing that left a poor taste in my mouth was that many people who preordered this game did not get the in game bonus item (Juggernaut) that they were promised. That's not the fault of the game, but mentally, I went into the beginning of the game felling cheated.
Rated 10 out of 10 by 619 MARVEL ULTIMATE
I got this game today and still playing it but so far so goooood. I'm using Dardevil,Gambit,Spiderman,Wolverine damn kickin butt never felt so good. Special teammates moves are kick ass. There are many different ones for each teammate you use. Graphics look good. Cut scenes could be sharper but still look good. Sound is nice. You can hear witty comebacks after you defeat a enemy. I beat up Electro and couple other bosses so far I can tell this game is gonna get better each level I pass. I hope they put out even more characters on DLC later on which they proally will, but using this roster is tiiight and look foward to unlocking more as the game progresses. This game is a Marvel fans dream come true, but adding even more characters on this or the next one they make should be the main factor to keep all fans happy. Besides the 'A' and 'B' list characters add some 'C' list as well. I read on IGN that there's alot of NPC why not put them in the game instead of just for show. Anyways get this game as good as the rest but even better with team super-moves. Have fun true believers
Rated 9 out of 10 by maxmaximus EXCEL SIOR!
So i just bought a ps3, and one of the first games i had to have was MU2 im a huge Marvel fan and im quit satisfied with this game. i beat the bejesus out of the first one and im destroying this one. There's deffinitley a few characters compared to the first one but in exchange this game has a more substantial story plot based off the marvel civil war saga. Loadings a bother but the graphics are greatly enhanced with ten times more attention to detail, lots of collectibles for you collectors but the upgrading of you're character miss's a personal touch everyone preety much levels up at the same time so you cant make one character super crazy, the sounds average the gameplay is fluid and simple and the graphics like i said great. my BIGGEST complaint about this game is the fact that when you download the bonus characters off the psn they only appear when you play online, and no one is ever playing online so i can never use amazing characters such as black panther and carnage to name a few. biggest fail -_-. b ut all in all i deff recomend this game for everybody and i demand marvel fans to purchase it.
Rated 8 out of 10 by jokericon00 Fun game to play with friends
Introduction: I like multi-player games that you can play with your friends. This game is one of the better multi-player team games out there. Pros: The graphics were a lot better than the previous installments. It's seems like Marvel new how to tweak every thing up just a little bit. The tag teams were a lot better and I liked how the characters super powers were a lot more flexible than before. The story line was very intricate because it gave so many details for you to follow throughout the game. The game speed was a lot faster than normal and the bosses actually gave you a challenge. Marvel did a great job at making this game better. Cons: The story was kind of all over the place at times and the character cut scenes were lacking in excitement. Also, the codes that they made for Ultimate Alliance was useless and Marvel could have kept them codes to themselves, lol. Some of the characters powers were useless and ineffective. Single mode can be boring! Overall: The game is great fun to play with your friends and it will keep your glued to the television. I recommend you do not play this game by yourself because it can get very boring!
