Omega's Review of Marvel Ultimate Alliance

This game had me hooked from the very first cut scene. And as a fan of Marvel's X-Men: Legends series, I had high expectations for this game. Needless to say they were met and exceeded. This game blows JLA Heroes out of the water. DC you guys need to take a step back and check out this prime example of a Comic Book - Video Game masterpiece.

With unlockable characters, hidden items, and an overwhelming storyline. Marvel Ultimate Alliance delivers action, adventure, and a great gaming experience.

My personal favorites are the great choice of recruitable charcaters and cameo appearances of some of Marvel's top heroes. And the fact that there are multiple costumes for each of your characters.

I rate this game a 10 in the comic book fan scale and a 9 in the gaming scale! Overall this is a five star must have, must rent, or simply must play!

The Comic Fan's Dream

Marvel Ultimate Alliance is truly the comic book fan's dream! With popular characters like Thing, Wolverine, Spiderman, Ironman, Thor and Captain America and less known characters like Ms. Marvel, Deadpool, Elektra and Luke Cage, Ultimate Alliance is the first Marvel game to expand the Marvel universe in such epic proportions.
The main drive to complete the game is to unlock every character possible, like Ghost Rider and Silver Surfer. As you play, you'll unlock classic costumes and new costumes for every hero that just keep adding to the Marvel fans excitement! You also find yourself battling against popular (and even the not so popular) villains from the Marvel comic universe, like Galactus and Dr. Doom.
The game is also driven by its fast-paced and exciting RPG-style brawler gameplay. What truly drives its fighting system is the fact that each hero comes equipped with his or her own special array of techniques and combos to add to the fray. This is clearly why the gameplay is so amazing. If it weren't for its fantastic group of playable characters, Ultimate Alliance wouldn't have much going for it and the gameplay would become monotonous and repetitive.

Best Superhero Game yet...

Marvel:Ultimate Alliance has been a very engaging game. I am normally very skeptical of any superhero game and to date, XMen:Legends was one of the best. However, Alliance takes it to another level. The ability to choose from up to 20 Marvel characters, each with unique his/her own unique powers, adds a lot of variety to the game. I find that if one group of characters isn't succesful in defeating a boss, I use a different combination. I consider myself an average gamer and so far, after playing perhaps 2 hours a day, I am not even 1/2 of the way through. There is a nice rpg format to the title, but the best feature is the overall playability of the game. So far this has been one of the better games released on the PS2. On a side note, there is a weak plot that gets you through from one act to another but it is enough to make the game engaging. I would be suprised and disappointed if this game did not receive accolades from the gaming industry. The graphics were good on the PS2 so should be even better on a next gen system.
