Story
The Marvel universe is being torn apart. You and your team of Marvel super heroes help Nick Fury launch a secret pre-emptive strike against Latveria and Lucia Von Bardas only to have to thwart her retalitaory attack on New York City.

Coupled with other super hero incidents, public sentiment turns against super heroes. The Superhuman Registration Act becomes law and super heroes must register as weapons of mass destruction, and become licensed government agents with the United States government. Lines are drawn as Iron Man leads the pro-registration faction, while Captain America spearheads the stand on anti-registration. You must pick a side and fight to determine the fate of the universe and humankind. So, whose side are you on.

Playable Characters
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 will feature a wide array of playable heroes and villains, some of which are available from the beginning of the game, while others will need to be unlocked. Although the final list was not available at publishing time, some of the faces from the Marvel universe that players can count on seeing include: Daredevil, Green Goblin, Human Torch, Invisible Woman, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Luke Cage, Mr. Fantastic, Deadpool, Juggernaut, Thing, Spider-Man, Storm, Songbird, Thor, Iron Fist, Wolverine, Venom and Gambit.

Gameplay
As with the original Marvel Ultimate Alliance, the new version of the game is an action RPG in which players create their own fighting team made up of four super heroes/villains. The makeup of teams can be changed as the player chooses, and characters can be leveled up as they gain experience and the game progresses. In addition, the separate powers of super heroes can be combined, or "fused," resulting in unique abilities that are devastating in combat. The game contains over 250 of these fused powers that only await the right combination in battle to be released.

Key Game Features

  • Create and Customize Your Ultimate Team - Assemble your dream team from the Marvel universe and select from over 24 playable heroes and villains, each with specialized powers.
  • Cooperate with Your Ultimate Alliance - Take full advantage of the Marvel universe by playing Cooperative Mode with up to four friends, both online and offline.
  • Choose a Side in Marvel’s Civil War - Pick a side in the ultimate ideological rift that could yield irreparable consequences for the super hero community.

3.0 out of 5 stars On the fence with this one September 23, 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I typically am a FPS guy, but I LOVE MARVEL. One of my favorite games of this generation is MUA. I've played through it about 6 times and unlocked and collected every possible item. MUA had tremendous variety as it followed a story created specifically for the game that allowed to introduce a hodge podge of characters in different locals.I had super high expectations for MUA2. I can't say that I'm dissapointed, but I don't think it's as good as it's predecessor.

I'll start with the presentation. The characters look great. The specialty "fusion" moves also look awesome and allow for some moments that will remind you of battles straight out of the comics. The environments on the other hand are really bland. The nature of the game, a level grinder, means you have to see a lot of the same enemies. MUA had you traversing all over the Marvel universe, so each level had a fresh look. You can't really plan on battles in space when most of the story takes place in an urban environment. The cut scenes are okay. Some are terrible, some are pretty cool, nothing on par with Square Enix to drop your jaw.

The gameplay is similar to MUA with the exception of the commands and fusion moves. You can no longer direct your heroes into battle, which means they do a lot of following you around. I can't remember a teamate disabling a shield or taking the initiative to attack enemies that were surrounding me. At times they were practically useless. I played through twice, once on casual (easy) with my yongest son and once on difficult. On the higher difficulty level, there were times I wanted to chuck my controller because the teamates stood around and watched me die. Another new touch that I like is being able to swap squadmembers on the fly.

By D. Mok
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The Ultimate Alliance games are basically extensions of X-Men Legends, with a four-character team going through an action-RPG hybrid.

I had been ambivalent about the first X-Men Legends, but I also thought that X-Men Legends II all but perfected the formula. So it was with high hopes that I put the Ultimate Alliance 2 game disc into my PS3.

At first, I was quite disappointed. The learning curve seemed unusually steep for me, even though I had played through X-Men Legends II about a hundred times. Gradually, over two days, the game started to feel more fun and I completed the Advanced (normal) difficulty.

And then the stink bomb dropped.

The worst part is, just like X-Men Legends II, this game actually has ample charms. Too bad it takes away most of the enjoyment with the major problems it lobs at you.

Pros:
- Terrific character diversity. Characters' attacks are varied and have great personality.
- The Navigation button, which you can use at most points in the game to point you to the right direction on where you're supposed to go next, and what the next objective is. Every game should have one.
- The story is actually pretty interesting, though the overlong and unskippable movie files are irritating.
- The two alternate storylines are a good idea.
- Some innovative touches -- such as "Attitude" in conversations, the "Audio" files that you can activate in a map -- add to the vibe.
- Having different "Fusion" attacks (co-operative super moves among characters) is great. If only they weren't so underpowered. See below.

Cons:
- Extraordinarily dumb game interfaces. For example, the X-Men Legends games wisely arranged your characters in a cross pattern, because it matches your D-pad shape.

2.0 out of 5 stars Marvel: Disappointment October 17, 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was a fantastic game. It managed to pull characters from the breadth of the Marvel (and technically the Ultimate Marvel) universe together for an epic adventure which took place in its own history and world. You didn't have to be a comic fan to appreciate the game, but it helped, and the controls were simple. The worst part of the game, arguably, was that specific costumes you might want your characters to wear gave bonuses you didn't want, or that the power sets were too broad.

I was excited for M:UA2, despite the fact that it takes one of the hands-down worst storylines of Marvel as its template for action, despite having an epic lead-in to a cosmic mash-up following the previous game. So, instead of having a potentially cosmic and epic issue, instead you have a game predicated entirely around the "reality" of superheroics and almost nonsensical choices given the history of a comic-book universe.

In almost every way, I found this game to be inferior to the previous one, though there are areas which would arguably be easier for players to handle. Let me go through the points quickly.

1) Storyline is hit-or-miss depending on your preferences. After the epic scale of the previous game, this one was at least a little disappointing. In the previous game, you went across the Universe and into Asgard, home of the Gods. In this one, you get to go to New York and ... um ... a Prison which could've actually been anywhere aside from the Negative Zone (where it's located) because you don't see anything but a boring prison interior.

2) Hero selection is generally common-fare. You get most people's favorites, and some key storyline characters (arguably) like Penance and Songbird.
