Forza 2 and Marvel Alliance Bundle
forza great, marvel not
THE RATING ABOVE IS FOR FORZA 2 ONLY, ULTIMATE ALLIANCE HAS ALL 0 I got my 1st xbox 360 about a month ago and I've got a small collection of games such as flatout ultimate carnage, battlefield bad company, battlefield 2, and dynasty warriors 5. Pretty good games but this bundle is probably begging for armageddon. Honestly, Forza 2 is very similar to the Gran Turismo series, but better then then Gran Turismo because there is damage and, in my opinion, more realistic. This would be a great bundle if microsoft wasn't so dumb to put their worst game on the 360 to start people off! What were they thinking?!? Ultimate Alliance was so bad I couldn't play more than 5 minutes. I just got so sick of the game that I'm going to give up forza 2 and just get some cash back from gamestop. Bottomline, if your going to get this bundle, just get forza 2 and forget about ultimate alliance
Great Bundle, Great Value, Great Games, Must Buy!
Well, I ordered this bundle a while back soon after getting my XBOX 360 Refurbished Console as a bit of a start towards the gaming experience on the Xbox 360. I had previously played Forza 2 and was very pleased with it. Before ordering a lot of skepticism ran through my head about Marvel Ultimate Alliance. I decided to purchase the used version of the bundle. Shipping was remarkably fast and took two days! (Ordered Sunday, Came on Tuesday) Item was neatly packaged and had no scuffs/scratches on disk. To start I played Marvel Ultimate Alliance and I was, to my surprise, very impressed! The game had dazzling sound effects and animations, an intriguing story throughout, and near perfect controls to compliment the features mentioned above! And if that wasn't enough if you own a Xbox 360 console with HDMI 1.2 or an HD AV Component Cable (also available from gamestop), the game is HD (Hi-Definition) 720p Compliant! If you are unaware, this makes the game look sharper, and EVEN more dazzling than standard definition (SD) resolutions/cables! So in all aspects this game is, as I have previously mentioned, a great value! As for Forza 2 I have already played it and all that I have to say is that it is one of the best looking, best feeling, greatest looking auto racing/simulation games on the market to date! I think that there is (or should be) enough info in the past 1398 characters of the english language to pursue you to buy this bundle! As always If you are getting this as a gift for someone I recommend that you get it new, select the priciest shipping option and get some nice gift wrap! If it is for yourself than of course, I recommend used as gamestop(r) does a hay of a good job maintaining the quality of these disks!
It's okay, personally I like the Forza part better. I guess I mainly bought it for the Forza MotorSports 2 part but I've taken a liking to the marvel game.
Bargain much? Two great games, 10 bucks?
I see alot of people posting that Forza is good, and Marvel is not. Not the case. In my mind, Forza 2 trumps Marvel Ultimate Alliance anyday, but it's not a bad game at all. I don't even read Marvel comics and I found the game to be thoroughly enjoyable. Since the game's so cheap, I was even able to convince my friends to buy it so we could play co-op online; tons of fun. Both games have great graphics, great interfaces, and great sound, all at a great price. Be warned though: both these games get old fast, as they are rather repetitive. However, it's a bundle, so that just means it's time to switch to the other game until it's time to switch back again! :D
Bundle: Worth it?
If you had got your Xbox360 just a few months ago, you might have got a hands on copy of the bundle which exclusively features Marvels: Ultimate Alliance and Forza Motorsport 2. So are these really the perfect game to kick start your experience with you Xbox360?Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - If you enjoy the thrill of superheroes, villans, some team action or perhaps just combat, you may enjoy this game to a certain extinct. The thrill of commanding your own squad (consisting 5 superheroes) may overwhelm your instinct of superhero combat. Although, you may be looking at some competition - not fierce- but still you make you interested in killing the "bad guys" a.k.a 'villans', but nothing impossible to beat. Understanding that game may not please everyone, it may just be enough to pass your time by as an arcade game. Overall Rating for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - 7/10Forza Motorsport 2: If you have always enjoyed games such as: NFS series, PGR series, then you may not particularly enjoy the gameplay in this game. From the fierce tracks to some pretty sweet looking cars, which explains the reality and the dangers of racing. Arcade gamers may hate the fact that braking you car, making turns, accelerating may give you a run for your money. Do not take this game to be a piece of cake. Although you might enjoy the long campaign for non Xbox Live gamers. The graphics may get a rating of 8/10 and gameplay 7/10. Overall rating for Forza Motorsport 2: 7/10So, new gamers or current Xbox 360 owners, worth to buy the bundle? [Yes] if you are not planning to buy Xbox Live or simply enjoy these types of games and [No] if you are looking for something that you may play for a long time enjoying every moment of the game.
One of the best deals on this site
2 great, lasting games for only $7. Forza 2 is a nice racing game for casual gamers, and Marvel is a fun party game with 4 player co-op. Definitely worth it in my opinion.
