With the immensely popular influx of comic book character movies it was only a matter of time before the explosion began to touch video games. While many games were made, Marvel Ultimate Alliance was unquestionably the most popular. While you originally only started with a few super heroes at your selection you gradually gained many more of Marvel’s most popular characters to join your team.
Ultimate Alliance played as an action game with multiple levels. The most irritating part of an otherwise great game was how the camera acted. Many of the battles can become intense quickly and there’s nothing worse than a camera angle simply making things more difficult than they should be. On the other hand, some might enjoy the hybrid ¾ top down scheme that the game tends to offer.
Ultimate Alliance is best played with a few friends as the repetition of the game can quickly reach beat ‘em up level, in which case it won’t hold your attention very long.
