  1. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, it just tightens a few of the lug nuts.
  2. Most of the time when I see a developer change between products, it spells inevitable doom or a watered down shadow of the previous title. In this case, I think Vicarious Visions has taken what Raven started and managed to not only match it but improve upon it.
  3. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is certainly the most refined game in its series (including its prequel and the X-Men Legends game before it).
  4. A solid follow-up to the 2006 release, with great new characters and fusion powers. The game looks very nice and plays well.
  5. Ultimate Alliance 2 does have some good improvements from the first game, but its pending technical problems hinder the game’s true potential.

There are so many characters that one feels overwhelmed at times with what to choose, and the graphics are disappointing. This all said is a regret because I was looking forward to this storyline (which was the games only plus) and I barely played have the game. Full Review »

    kind of a marvel buff, and ive been playing these games since X-men Legends 1. this game is quality. the whole system(though you need to get kind of a marvel buff, and ive been playing these games since X-men Legends 1. this game is quality. the whole system(though you need to get use to it b/c its refined from the last one) is tight and streamlined. they handled the Civil War story very well. not 100% accurate but the liberties they take are more than acceptable. now im not usually a basher, but Krit U's review is simply useless. dont listen to it. sorry bro but the things you complain about are simply untrue.
