But now, Dr. Doom and a newly reformed Masters of Evil have plans for world domination, and the heroes must band together to defeat them. Playing as some of the most revered Marvel characters, gamers will embark on a dangerous journey across exotic terrain and well-known comic book locations like Atlantis, the Shield Heli-Carrier and the Skrull home world in an attempt to defy the world's most notorious Super Villains.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
4 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 14, 2006

There used to be a well-defined line between the PC and console systems when it came to video games. In the age of the next-gen console systems, that line has become very fuzzy. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is a prime example of that. It is the same game that you will find on the PC but with some very console-friendly control schemes. Ok, so the Sony sixaxis controller gets marginal use in this game, but the graphics are bright and lush, the cooperative play is a snap to launch and the controls are very intuitive. Dr. Victor Von Doom is threatening the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, heading up a group known as the Masters of Evil and Captain America asks Thor, Spider-man and Wolverine to take out the cyborg-controlled assault ships.

Amazing Multiplayer Comicbook Heroe Game
3 Star Review   By member danshinn - Jul 22, 2008   

Strengths: Lots of characters, Easy to Play, Good Graphics

Weakness: Can get repetitive, Sore fingers

A very good solid game for the price. Can be picked up for under $30 at most places. Has all your favorite Marvel superheroes. Graphics doesn't get any better. 4 players playing at once is the best! Definitely a crowd pleasure. The action however can get repetitive. But overall great game for the money...assuming you spent less than 30 bucks.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance
5 Star Review   By member Anonymous - Jun 10, 2008   

Strengths: Good gameplay, characters and graphics.

Weakness: Some of the vocals are a little cheesy and repetative but it's still fun.

Really fun gameplay, including underwater. A variety of recognizable characters and fighting styles. I like having a team of characters to control, each with their own special powers. The graphics are good and the enemies are varied.

Interesting adventure game
3 Star Review   By member hellmutt - Apr 16, 2007   

Strengths: Control all the cool Marvel superheroes with their associated skills

Weakness: Building and controlling the team of 4 gets a little cumbersome.

Maybe it's just me, but controlling 4 guys at the same time gets a little annoying. It's too much for me to worry about the bad guys, what I'm doing, and what the other 3 guys are doing at the same time. For me, it took it from what could have been a 4-start down to a 3-star. I could just opt to let the 3 guys wander on their own, but it's just not optimal that way. I tried the two player mode and that got a little annoying too, you have to spend a lot of effort trying to keep both people close enough to each other on the screen. I did like the graphics; the controls were 'ok' -- not great, but 'ok'. Overall, give the game a 3-star.

Ultimate Super Hero game
4 Star Review   By member cheapfrag - Feb 18, 2007   

Strengths: lots of playable Super Heroes, great graphics, good story

Weakness: camera view can be annoying

Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a fun game. You get to play as a team of four superheroes. You start out with Captain America, Spiderman, Thor and Wolverine. You control one of the heroes while the computer controls the other - but you can quickly switch among the 4 very easily. You can also choose from numerous other heroes to create your own team. The Thing, Elektra, Iron Man, the Human Torch, Colossus, the Invisible Woman, Storm, Luke Cage, Spiderwoman, Deadpool, Mr. Fantastic, Ms Marvel, Moon Knight and Ice Man are all available from the very beginning. There are also 7 locked super heroes. As you play, the super heroes level up, learn new skills and gain skill points. You can spend skill points to improve the effectiveness of you skills. You also collect coins that you can spend on upgrades like increasing the defensive ability of your super hero suit. You can also pick up items that the villains drop to improve your super heroes effectiveness. You can pick up broken pipes to increase you melee attack for a limited time. The game can be saved from SHIELD Access Points. You can also change your team and buy upgrades when at the Access Point. In the first mission the main villains include Scorpion, Bullseye, Radioactive Man and Winter Soldier. Dr. Doom is gathered these villains and many others and they call themselves the Masters of Evil and it’s up to you and your super heroes to stop them. The game is played from the third person perspective. The camera automatically adjust the view as you move around and that can sometimes be annoying as it adjusts it different than I would normally do it. Overall the game is a lot of fun. It's one of the best titles available at the PS3 launch and would be fun for anyone - not just comic book aficionados. EDIT - On two occasions I have had one member of my super hero team hovering in the air - not flying - just operating on a different plane than ground level. I think it happened when I jumped, they just didn’t come back down from the jump. It first happened with Spiderman and then with Captain America. I minor inconvenience and seems to reset itself with the next checkpoint.
