Marvel Ultimate Alliance 

 

The WMG has heard a lot of friends in the gaming media gush on about Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Activision plastered this game on just about every current video game system, so WMG decided to check out the Xbox 360 version. This is a hack and slash where the hack has been replaced by punch, and the slash by kick. Unless of course you are playing a character like Wolverine and there a lot of slashing going on. Plenty of Marvel heroes and villains are included in this video game. Quite a few villains are mini bosses, or bosses. Activision made sure a storyline was included revolving around Dr. Doom (as if that comes as any surprise).

The top down visual representation is the WMG’s favorite, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance provides that in abundance. The biggest disappointment in this video game is how dark the graphics are in a lot of the levels. There is the issue of how a lot of the female characters are dressed (editor: look are current comic books for that shocking revelation). The violence gets very boring extremely quickly, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance requires a lot of it.

The sounds have a real majestic feel to them, and made the WMG feel like something important was being accomplished. There is unfortunately some bad language in this game that is not needed, nor is it wanted. Certain characters teach bad lessons while a few teach good ones.

All of the different characters can lead to some diversity in the team of four super heroes. Plenty of level up options for those interested in digging into the system. The offensive content is what makes the WMG not want to play this game. Wading through thousands of similar looking bad guys gets boring fast.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance controls just like it should, although where to go next can be a challenge between levels. Eventually most players will stumble across the right spot, after some frustration with this game.

Saving the world is a good thing, but having to be so over the top violent is the bad thing. There is enough adult content in Marvel Ultimate Alliance to warrant a warning to keep this game out of the hands of children. Less violence and more puzzles if there are any sequels.
