In my opinion Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is the best comic book game ever made and considering how many there have been over the years that is saying a lot. I love this game, i have got all of the characters to level 99 (without using any cheats) and i still play it from time to time. The game has 25 Marvel characters to play as (33 with download content) and many more make appearances as allies or villains. You can upgrade all the characters and they're powers as you play through the game so it gets better and better as you play it, after you have upgraded you're characters to higher levels and on easy or normal some of the characters can clear a hole room full of smaller villains with just the touch of a button, also most of the characters you can play as have 4 different outfits you can use so if you get tired of the 1980's outfit you can switch to a more modern one. If you're a fan of the Marvel comics, cartoons or movies this is the best game available for you, at least until Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 Fusion comes out.

This is the typical X-Men Legends 1 or 2 gameplay with added character and ablities. That being said the game is still fun to play through and plays pretty smoothly, most of the time. The ability to switch between the characters is great but you may need to keep your party together a while to level up them to beat the harder nasties.
It would have been nice to have been able to pick the party before even begining the game, instead of the default 4 characters.
The game is a top down Action game with RPG added into the mix. It works well if you use it or you can simply just stick it on auto and it will upgrade the characters as they see fit.
If you are a comic book fan or like just beating down enemies then you should at least rent this game.

If you like collecting coins and leveling up, you will probably enjoy this game. It plays like a dungeon crawler and has good graphics. The camera works pretty good except for certain areas, and then its a little wack. Some of the voice acting is good and the rest, well you judge.
