  1. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, it just tightens a few of the lug nuts.
  2. With upgraded graphics, improved story features, new gameplay additions, and a full roster of fantastic characters it’s nearly impossible not to recommend this game as a full-fledged purchase.
  3. One could sum up my issues with Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 by the liberties that were taken with both the story and the characters. It's the only thing in my mind that keeps the game from being truly great, because the gameplay mechanics and leveling system are really top-notch.
  4. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is certainly the most refined game in its series (including its prequel and the X-Men Legends game before it).
  5. Ultimate Alliance 2 does have some good improvements from the first game, but its pending technical problems hinder the game’s true potential.
  6. While Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is not as good as the first Marvel Ultimate Alliance in many ways it is still a game that action gamers, RPG fans and those comic book fans will love if they can look past its flaws. I have to admit I did expect more from this game, but it was a riot to play through from start to finish. This is a must buy.

    I loved this game, it was just as good, if not better than the first. The story was great and the large roster of characters you could play as was awesome. Be for warned, if you pick it up now, it's a great game to play through, but if you are looking to fill those multiplayer achievements you are going to need a friend with the game because nobody is playing this on xbl anymore.

    Too bad, it isn't as good as the last one . The combat is nothing , to disjointed and bad. While MUA isn't as great as the first, is fun ( bland) . In the graphical aspect isn't good, the cut scene downgraded for a cartoonish style, disappointing . The combat is equal and less better. Full Review »
