Ben 10 Omniverse 2
Publisher is known for some fun, fresh, and interesting video games.
Unlike many companies they do not churn out the same thing year after
year. Ben 10 Omniverse 2 is the quintessential example of this. This
home console game on the Wii, Wii U, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 has
little to do with the first Ben 10 Omniverse game.
Don't get me wrong Ben 10 Omniverse, and Ben 10 Omniverse 2 are set in the same universe. It is the game play that is drastically different. Ben 10 Omniverse 2 has two things players do. They go on running levels, and they go on the fighting levels. Thing is these two are woven together. Run around the halls, streets, whatever and wind up in fighting rooms.
The fighting portions of Ben 10 Omniverse 2 will feel familiar to the Ben 10 gamers. Punch, kick, and use powers to knock out hundreds of enemies that look the same. Players can quickly swap between a light weight, middle weight, and heavy weight.
At the start of any level players pick one light weight, one middle weight, and one heavy weight. As they run they have to swap to smash through, jump over, and trigger certain switches. Each form has its advantages and disadvantages in the running levels. Players can also move left and right to avoid obstacles, and collect green orbs.
Green orbs are important in Ben 10 Omniverse 2. They allow players to maintain their forms. Lose all of your green energy and you turn into the weak human form of Ben Tennyson. If you can avoid getting hit the green energy will build up again to a base level naturally.
D3 Publisher earns applause for trying something new with Ben 10 Omniverse 2. The running levels are definitely different. For some reason at the end of the day Ben 10 Omniverse 2 feels repetitive. Running around on near rails areas, fighting guys, and doing it again.
The two player mode in Ben 10 Omniverse 2 is the Battle Arena. This is where two family members can fight waves of enemies in a room. It can be fun for about five minutes. Then you begin to wonder what the point is. How many of these guys are there? When does it ever end?
one plot point in Ben 10 Omniverse 2 that confuses this reviewer. Ben is
supposed to be laying low. Yet he pummels hundreds of guys. No one can
sound an alarm. No one can tell others. No one goes looking for all the
