  • Summary: The "greatest Super Hero action/RPG of all time" is back with the world’s largest army of heroes and villains in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2. Incorporating elements of the acclaimed Marvel Civil War storyline, the game allows players to choose their side and team up with revered heroes and villains, including Spider-Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Iron Man, Deadpool, Venom, Green Goblin and Captain America. Players can combine characters’ powers and unleash astonishing new attacks. [Activision] Expand

  1. Despite the acceptable graphics and high-quality story, this one's not worth your while.

    There's no spark to Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 on the Wii. The same cutscenes are used from the 360/PS3 version so you're getting the story of Secret and Civil War, but other than that you're left with a ho-hum game that packs some dumb AI, frustrating bits, and odd hold ups.
  3. Reeking of a quick-and-dirty Wii port, the game is hampered by clumsy controls, bland level design, muddy visuals, and ultrasimplistic AI. [Dec 2009, p.89]
  4. If you've never played Marvel Ultimate Alliance you're better off getting the first game which should be easy to find cheaply - you might struggle a little with the controls, but you'll have a lot more fun.

    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is a predominantly unremarkable title that fails to hook you in any meaningful way. Combat is an integral part of the game, but it is a largely repetitive and unsatisfying affair due to an over-reliance on under-powered attacks and button-bashing.
  6. It's inelegant and underdeveloped, and it represents a major step backward when compared to the original. Halfhearted dialogue, bad AI, unimaginative level design, stripped RPG elements, and all sorts of other factors make the game feel as if it were pieced together on an assembly line and quickly tossed onto store shelves.
  7. A staggering work of technical ineptitude. [Dec 2009, p.71]

    It isn't awful, I'm sure the PS3 and X360 versions are great, but the game is too short and it doesn't feel like developers tried as hard with MUA2 as they did with MUA Expand

    While I did enjoy this game overall, it is not as good as the 1st Marvel Ultimate Alliance. It felt too short and the characters in the game are not much different from the original. Expand
