Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is an all-new action/RPG where players create their Marvel dream team from the largest roster of Super Heroes ever in an epic quest that will determine the fate of Earth and the Marvel universe. For decades, Earth's Super Heroes have opposed evil in their own cities, and on their own terms. But now, Dr. Doom and a newly reformed Masters of Evil - the greatest collection of Super Villains ever assembled - 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. Created by Raven Software, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance lets players control the most powerful Super Hero alliance the world has ever known.
  • Create Marvel Dream Team!!! - Experience the full scale of the Marvel universe with a combined cast of over 140 popular comic book characters. Players create, customize and control their ultimate four-person strike team, selecting from an initial roster of 20 playable Super Heroes, including Spider-Man, Wolverine, The Thing, Captain America, Elektra and Thor - and battle notorious Super Villains including Dr. Doom, Galactus and countless others.
  • Deep, Rich, Customizable - Marvel: Ultimate Alliance offers gamers total team customization. Players can form their favorite Marvel dream team, create their own team name, team icon, team vehicle and establish a team reputation as they play through an original storyline hand crafted by renowned game developer Raven Software and Marvel's own C.B. Cebulski. Additionally, players have more control over leveling up each team member to their liking, or upgrading all team members together to keep their heroes balanced.
  • Combat, Combat, and More Combat - With new and dynamic combat capabilities, Super Heroes can now fight while airborne, on the ground, and even submerged underwater as they traverse through 17 exotic locales and play out some of the most legendary comic book battles from the Marvel universe.
  • The Fates - Marvel: Ultimate Alliance features a unique storyline where players not only determine the fate of Earth, but also control the fate of the Marvel universe. The missions players accept, the objectives completed, and how players interact with other characters throughout the game will have a direct impact on how the story plays out.
  • In addition to the epic single-player storyline, players can also battle the world's most evil Super Villains alongside friends in both on and offline cooperative story modes. This robust multiplayer component also features a Competitive Mode - where the game keeps track of various in-game stats so players can see how well they stack up against one another.

Marvel super hero's has 20 + playable characters plus hours of great button bashing action and game play through some of Marvels greatest landscapes ... what's not to like?
Eventually you be able to pick your team of 4 super heroes each with their own (but sometimes similar) moves and techniques. But to at the begin of the game your stuck with Thor, Spiderman, Wolverine, and Captain America which all things considering ... not a bad team to start with. The Marvels universes biggest and bad'est enemies have pulled together to hunt down and collect certain items/ info that when put together and used properly create and bigger nastier weapon or does it? That one you will have to find out on your own.

If you have played the x men legend games you will know what to expect in this game. The game is a dungeon crawler you run around beating up enemies with your various combos, techniques and powers there are also "team up" attacks where you and other characters can team up to unleash a powerful attack together. Another little bonus add to the game is that you can pick up various items such as broken pipes to use as weapons which does allot more damage than standard fist to fist fighting.

However as all dungeon crawlers the game can get very repetitive. But don't worry the game offers a great story that helps pull you through this and also some new and interesting challenges, such as interesting versions of old arcade games such as pitfall and breakout.

Each character as you progress through the game will level up making that character stronger and unlocking new techniques/ powers for that character to use. You can work through and assign these new powers yourself or let the computer do it for you. Even if you don't play as certain characters these characters will level up as well just not as much but it does mean that half way through the game if you do fancy a change of character you can knowing that they aren't completely hopeless and you haven't got hours to wait before they catch up on level.

The game also tries to make boss fights more interesting some which require you to work out simple puzzleish techniques to attack, other bosses are so big you will have to use the environment around you to offer support, or may require you to press certain buttons at a certain time to help you defeat these bosses. So it's not just a rush in bash em up then go home job some bosses may require you to step back and re think your strategy.

The game will take you a while to complete (not a hour like some people seem to think) and you may want to play through the game again once completed to see alternative what ifs! You see as you progress through the game your given choices, missions to do, people to save etc these choices affect what, what if story boards you get the at the end of the game that show future events within the Marvel universe so if you want to see them all you will have to go through the game at least twice

If you have played the x men legends games you will know that the graphics on the characters are quite basic, the same goes for this game but this doesn't spoil the game at all in any way and the graphics on the backgrounds are fantastic.

Overall a great game that has long lasting appeal, although quite repetitive the story and extras will help pull you through the game. A great game for everyone and well worth the price tag.

For the Price, its an excellent Buy, the game uses the same technology as the Xmen RPG, but when you have the right Alliance, say the Fantastic 4 or New Avengers, the team works even better. The sound is game, graphics what you would expect in this type of game, the action never stops, its a pity that they didnt add dualshock to game. Online is beautiful....

 Its about men in tights!

I actually like this game, it caused me some deliberation because of the conflicting reveiws. I do see why tho technically the game is a run around and beat em up affair with the odd mini puzzle thrown in. But if you love your superheroes and want a good and varied selection then this is your game.

This game was ok and kept me occupied for a few days but was basically the same thing over and over again. Dr.Doom (the last boss) is really easy to beat all the boss' are really easy to beat! The storyline is actually awful and 2 player mode could be better! The camera is rubbish aswell! Why is there no good games on PS3?! Maybe Resistance : Fall of Man ...

 good game
