Well marvel ultimate allince is game from actvision. That continues the X-men legend series) it was released on a lot of differnt consoles Including the Next-gen, Motion senseing wii. Well i know it may sound awsome to play a button masher with a wii remote. But it really isn't The controls are tacked on and don't feel right. The graphics are lower then the PS2 verison. Like There are 3 main attacks. Swipe (which you can do by swiping the wii-moat left or right)Trip attack (move wii-moat down) uppercut (move wii-moat up) and special move (A and B) But no matter what attack you pick it feels really tacked on. And meant for a gamepad. On a high note there are over 2 dozen super heros but still Get it on a differnt console

New Improvements Same Great 7.0-7.5 Taste

I happen to rent this game traditionally every year for the purpose of sharing my geek experience with someone else. I know a fair amount of comic knowledge and that seems to spur my desire to play. Notice that I only "rent" this game every year; it has NEVER warranted a buy from me. Minor improvements like auto-equipping (for us lazy folks) help the game flow better, and creating a custom team is also pretty cool; but these features don't revolutionize how the game is played. Let's face it, this game really needs a breath of fresh air; something to break up the tedium of constantly crackin' skulls. The character selection is good for the most part, but I would readily trade Spider-Woman and Luke Cage for the chance to use Punisher (He doesn't even make an appearance in the game!). Overall this game repairs a few flaws but overlooks the opportunity to do something truly bold with the Marvel license. This game receives an expected 7.0 rental status; see ya again next year, old friend.
