It's the same fraking feel as the original X-Men. I haven't played Legends, but I've read the same criticism of that. So if you loved those games you'll love Ultimate Alliance. Otherwise, prepare to bore.
This game is kind of week on the graphics and the play of the game. the way u play and how you use the powers of the super heroes does not capture the imagination or your interest. the game does not have a good amount of fighting in the game. the shows and the game do not relate in how they use there ability's. all I am saying is the game is realy not worth the hype it was built up to be.
Choose from a number of Superheroes from your favorite comics...fight a number of bad guys from each comic, and you get Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. I liked how they stayed with the Xmen Legends gameplay because I was familiar with it. Nothing really bothered with this game because I thought it was just so awesome to begin with. Creating your own team and naming it what you want was a cool concept but I never did it.
