Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 review

The alliance being crap intentions and crap execution


  • All your Marvel favorites
  • Almost recognizable characters!
  • Lots of beating up of things


  • Terrible
  • terrible graphics
  • Boring corridor brawling
  • Technical ineptitude at every level

Alone, they are the greatest heroes known to man. Together, they are a car crash. All your Marvel favorites are here, but thanks to an interesting interpretation of the term ‘graphics’ you won’t be able to tell. Behold: The Incredible Smear! Wonder Lump! Dr. Something! Not to forget your friendly neighborhood Clump of Blue and Red.

What little appeal Ultimate Alliance 2 had – namely, a bustling roster of fan favorites – is lost in realization, leaving the bare bones of a turgid corridor brawler. The ultimate alliance? This game and our trash can. A staggering work of technical ineptitude.
