Game Review ( Marvel: Ultimate Alliance - 360 )

Graphics: 4/5 The cutscenes ( especially the one at the beginning ) are unbelievable. They look freakishly realistic. The in-game graphics, though, are not as good though the characters look excellent, they don't look to 360ish. They do look alright, though. The framerate holds up, and it makes for a pleasent experience.

Sound: 4/5 The Marvel characters sound nice, and the villans do as well. However, nothing is too spectacular worth noting.

Control: 3.5/5 This game isn't too hard to control, but it does take some time, and the uncontrollable camera angles are somewhat distracting. You use the D-Pad to change your character ( You can have four at a time ) and you have to do some button combinations to attack. Sometimes you'll forget what button you need to press, but it's not bad.

Fun: 4/5 Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is really a good game. You can play as Captain America, Spiderman, Wolverine, Thor, The Thing, Mr. Fantastic, Elektra, Daredevil, and several more, including unlockables. It will take a long time to level everyone up, though, since you can only have 4 players out at a time. Either way, anyone can jump in and play, and a fan of Marvel will love this game. There is also Xbox Live play, which also adds to the experience. Even though this game is repetetive when you play it for awhile non-stop, it is still a great 360 game that anybody can sit down and enjoy the game without even bothering with the power-ups and level-ups.
