Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2

A sequel to the action RPG by Activision, set in the Marvel’s superhero universe. The game was initially released in 2009 and then remastered with PC and the 8th-generation consoles in mind. The plot of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 starts when the S.H.I.E.L.D. comes across traces of dangerous criminal activity. Mysterious creatures equipped with state-of-the-art weapons and advanced technology stand up to a team of superheroes that consists of Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Daredevil, among others. The player’s task is to discover who is behind the entire scheme. Mechanics-wise, the production does not deviate significantly from the solutions of its predecessor. The most important novelty is the fusion system that allows two different superheroes to use one special power. The game’s plot can also develop non-linearly, depending on the choices made during dialogues.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for Xbox 360 is a sequel to a famous action RPG from 2006. The title lets us assume the role of Marvel’s superheroes (this time, over twenty characters) whose actions we observe from an isometric view. The production initially came out in 2009 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS, Wii, and Xbox 360. In 2016, it was remastered for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, receiving a better interface and enhanced graphics. For these three platforms, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is sold digitally as a standalone product or in bundle with Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

Plot

The action of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 starts when Nick Fury—the boss of S.H.I.E.L.D.—comes across an incredibly dangerous criminal activity. He gathers a team of superheroes, including such personas as Captain America, Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Daredevil. They are sent to fight the worst of crimes, and do a very decent job. This is when mysterious creatures equipped with state-of-the-art weapons and advanced technology step in. They target all superheroes who participated in activities organized by the boss of S.H.I.E.L.D. The player’s task is to uncover who is behind this scheme.

Mechanics

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 for Xbox 360 offers a non-linear story. In some dialogues, the player has three different attitudes to choose from: an aggressive, a defensive, and a diplomatic one. They influence further missions and superheroes’ development. The biggest novelty in comparison with the original is the Fusion system that allows two different superheroes to jointly use one special power, for example, to wreak mass havoc or to heal party members. In total, the game gives over two hundred different combinations at our disposal.
