Rated 0 out of 10 by TheVoice Not just for comic book fans!
You do NOT have to be a comic book fan to appreciate the gameplay of the Marvel Ultimate Alliance game(s). The first Marvel Ultimate Alliance completely caught me by surprise. My friends and I aren't very big comic book fans at all, and hardly knew more than half the roster of characters, to be perfectly honest...but that didn't stop us from spending hours upon hours enjoying the GREAT cooperative play that the game offers. Like the first game, MUA2 will allow players to customize how their characters' abilities grow over time, which is a great feature that gives this otherwise standard beat-em-up game a very nice cerebral element to enjoy. We already know that both the story and setting are great, the character line-up looks good, the awesome co-op play is back, fusions look like a LOT of fun, and you KNOW that this is the kind of game that you want to play through again as soon as you beat it your first time. Well worth the price, in my humble opinion.

When I first got MUA 2(Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2) i thought it was going to be like every other group battle game but when I started playing it was like extremness in my Xbox360. This game no doubt is the best strategy/action game I have ever played! When you get to choose sides it tells you what each side COMPLETELY represents. You start out with Capt America and his gang but later on you can join others. This game is a must buy if you love action and adventure games. i thought this was going to be like the first fun and exciting but this brought it to a whole new level. The graphics were not like mind blowing but looked really real. Even though i don't own a full HD TV it looks REAL.The sound is so loud but clear its like standing next to a speaker. When you can preform a special move it looks and sounds amazing. Game play is fun ,exciting and extremely unpredictable. Everything looks real and during challenges(hard parts) it gets you excited for action. Well at least me. And with an Edge Card pricing isn't a problem.

Rated 9 out of 10 by COD and HALO freak well done
Well, i didnt quite want this game, cuz i wanted batman arkham asylum, which got higher rank than this. My little brother got this. i played the first ultimate alliance that my brother got, and 1 word- BORING. so i thought this would be too. but, you know, i said im playing first and testin it, considering its my xbox 360. but wen i started.... i didnt let my brother play till the time wen i was done with the long, awesome, and well-designed story mode. it was SO fun and SO addicting, i couldnt stop. and wen i beat it, i was happy and clapping for ultimate alliance 2. good controls, storyline, challenge becuz i played on heroic difficulty, and everything else. i was so hooked that i went online and got cheats, that i put in 1 at a time and saved. that way i got characters like Hulk more faster, and other things. so there u have it. the game is killer. i bet that if i got arkham asylum also, this would have beaten its behind, badly.
Rated 8 out of 10 by AnonymouslyConfused28 It's Good
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is a good game. I still think the first one is a tad better and maybe its predecessors the X-Men Legends series may even be a tad better.... Anyways the graphics are quite a leap ahead of the original Ultimate Alliance that graced the console early in the 360's life cycle. The core combat remains the same but with the addition of fusion powers. The upgrade system is easy to understand. The story is where it lacks for me as it is somewhat poorly told as compared to the previous game. It is just the way they presented it. It is a great story in theory and I am sure the registration act was in the comics ( never read ) but in the game it just never reaches a high point. Pretty much if you enjoyed the first one your gonna like this one. It is a worth while investment and the game is shorter than the previous but you have two different sides to side with so that will extent it for most.
Rated 8 out of 10 by BigD66 Good, but it can get soo much better!
As the follow up to Marvel Ultimate Alliance, this game is a hit and miss. It hit on the fact that it tightened up on the controls and the graphics look amazing! The story is pretty good as it follows the Civil War, but in all honesty I was looking forward to laying a beatdown on Galactus as hinted at the end of the first game. Thor explains the first game away in the blink of an eye as Odin did something and some stuff happend. then he gets bored and walks away. COME ON THOR! Also the hero's range from AWESOME(Hulk, Deadpool) to why are you in this game? (Songbird, Green Goblin). All in all it's a good game, but compared to the first game there are a lot less options for the "Diehards" out there. Each hero (and villian...) has only 1 extra outfit. A farcry from the 4 each hero had in the first game. These minor gripes aside, I strongly recommend this game for any Marvel or superhero fan. Good stuff!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Batman1080 Great Sequal!
If you like the Marvel universe or you are just a casual gamer then you will like this game! The Story: With over 15 playable Marvel chararcters, you get to choose 4 of them and play as a team and defeat villians. this may seem boring but it is not! the story revolves around super heroes fighting each other and are blind to see the real threat intil it is to late. The story does get boring at parts but it is deffenetly well developed. Graphics: The graphics are generally the same as it's predecesar. Unlockables: A lot of unlockables! Custumes, Pictures, Voice recordings, Videos, Charectar Biographys. Pros: - Cool Charectars. - Great Story. - 8 Hour long story! - Tons of unlockables - Multyplayer Mode Is Cool Cons: - Graphics are a bit bad. - Could of had some more charecters. (Carnage, Cyclops, Winter Soldier, Crimson Dynamo, Ghost Rider) - Story seemed a bit boring at parts. Overall: 8/10
Rated 8 out of 10 by Drave Lock Could have been better.
First of all this is a mediocre game, it is not a must have but is still fun. They advertised that the civil war of the marvel universe is the main game, but three out of twelve are actually payed on the side you chose. The characters now are more diverse than in the first one though similar setup. The actual characters are not nearly as cool as in the first one. Have any of you (Not comic readers and die hard fans) ever heard of Penance, Songbird, or Iron Fist. As always someone has to get replaced, that would be Blade, Ghost Rider, and one of the main characters from the first Elektra. Many other less famous have also been cut. The game has been made much harder from the first and continued play requires you to raise the difficulty. I do like the challenge but as you get further it gets ridiculously hard. All in all it is a moderate game. Mild fans of marvel will find it enjoyable.
Rated 0 out of 10 by DJON MARVEL 2!!
Mua 2 is gonna be great! The first was amazing in every way and i hope this one will be just as good and more. Thats what we're expecting. All the characters have been annouced! Also actual gameplay is now available! The graphics look much better then the first one, the character selection is much greater, and the story line(marvel civil war) is awesome. Now they have tooken away some characters(dr. strange, ghost rider, spiderwomen, and silver surfer). But as in return they have added some new characters(gambit,penance,songbird,green goblin,venom,hulk,jean grey, and iron fist)!! Great news is if you pre order it at gamestop you get the juggernaut cheat as a playable character! Its gonna be great and i cannot wait. its gonna have everything in one and more!! If you are a marvel fan or if you like those type of games where you upgrade heroes then this is the ultimate game for you!
Rated 10 out of 10 by TheMarvelKnight Can a Sequel be better than the orignal?
Hell yeah it can. The cast of playable characters offers some new variety to the game, not to mention the additions of fusion attacks. Such as Spider-man grouping all the enemies on screen in a giant sack like nest made from web, and than have Gambit unload an entire deck of cards onto the unsuspecting foes. Every member has a fairly unique combo with each member. Party customization, skill and stat building, and of course costumes lets the user pretty much create his/her own fantasy marvel team up. The use of dialogue choices makes the game feel more responsive to the story line. Ontop of the XBOX 360 Acheivements, the game offers MARVEL style acheivements too. The game looks alot more polished, and alot more enemies can show up on screen at once now, so sumtimes ur in a straight combat for a few minutes straight while u try to clear the hordes of baddies. If your a fan of MARVEL of comics in general this would be a MUST-HAVE. If u like Hack n Slash style RPGs, you can also find some fun in this. Fans of the series will be happy to know that alot of the perks have returned from the first game-
