    Ultimate Alliance is more than enough fun to last through the main story -- especially if you bring a couple friends -- but whether you'll be returning to it again and again over the course of months is dependent largely on your superhero obsession and tolerance for repetition.

    This has to be every comic fan's wet dream. [Apr 2007, p.118]
  3. If you're a fan of the X-Men Legends games that have appeared over the last few years you'll know what to expect from Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, but you'll probably still be surprised at how polished and lengthy the game is.

    The PS3 version is still a must play for PS3-owning Marvel fans and those looking for a game to rock with four players, but if the choice is there, you are only hurting yourself by skipping over the 360 version, because this one is a couple of heroes short of an Avengers team.

    Great idea, lame execution. Even Marvel fans will find it dull. [Apr 2007, p.61]

    It's the same old trek through the claustrophobic levels, whacking enemies until they disappear. [Issue #151, p.74]
  7. If you're looking for a deep hack and slash title along the lines of "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance," look elsewhere. Marvel Ultimate Alliance is an over simplified attempt at a genre that begs for more. This just isn't hack and slash done right -- it feels more like an arcade game than anything else.

    Four-player superhero co-op is as fun as it sounds, but ultimately Alliance is a fanboy’s game and little else. [Apr 2007, p.131]

    Everything that I have said in my review for the Wii version in regards to the core game play and story line but there are some improvements.Everything that I have said in my review for the Wii version in regards to the core game play and story line but there are some improvements. For instance the texture quality is higher and the controls are more responsive than they were with the Wii version. There are even more characters to use via DLC with Venom being the best new character to use. If you can choose between the versions I would recommend this one over the Wii version. Full Review »
