Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2


Last night I was able to finish the new Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 for the Xbox. It only took me maybe just over ten hours to finish the game as the Pro-Reg side. Not it's time to play through on Legendary difficulty and choose the Anit-Reg side this time.

Unfortunately MUA2 is not perfect, and I do think there are some good things in the game, but it's not as good as the first Ultimate Alliance. Even though I was enjoying the game, I was glad that it didn't take me long to finish it. The good thing is that there is a reason to play through a second time, so that should put my play time at something around twenty-five hours, not bad.

I am looking forward to giving the co-op a try, I think it will make the game much more fun.

Am planning to get this as a rental, so maybe we can try co-op together...

That would be great. One thing you will notice is that the AI for your team mates is not the best.

I wish they were bringing this to the PC! The only console I have is the Wii, and the dip in graphical fidelity is way more than just jarring! It's looking pretty likely that they aren't bringing it over though. :(

I was hoping it would be on the PC too. I bought the first MUA on the PC before I ever played it on the Xbox. But the controls were not good and I had to use an adapter for my PS2 controller to play the game.

The game is beautiful on the Xbox, would love to see how it would look on the PC.
