Marvel: Ultimate Alliance – Super Action/RPG?


How does a RPG/action adventure featuring Marvel’s fantastic array of super heroes sound to you? How many you say?
Does more than 140 sound OK? Well that’s how many will feature in the game with 20 playable characters. Ooohhh will I be Spider-man? Wolverine? Blade? Decisions decisions. Ahh who am I kidding it’s Spidey all the way!!!

IGN has this to say about Marvel: Ultimate Alliance:

“Marvel: Ultimate Alliance delivers a new twist on action/RPGs where players’ actions and choices ultimately determine what happens to the Marvel universe,” states Will Kassoy of Activision. “This coupled with the game’s enormous character roster will deliver an action-packed experience that comic book fans have been waiting for.”

Ultimate Alliance will allow players to create their own team name, icon and vehicle, and well as establish their team reputation as they play through their choice of multiple missions. Tweakable character leveling will give gamers the choice to focus on individual heroes or team-wide upgrades. With avengers assembled battle Marvel super baddies through multiple environments with all manner of combat moves and super hero powers.

Multiplayer modes will let players join friends and fight evil doers on and off line in co-op modes. An in-game stat tracking mode will allow you to see how you rate against others.

You can’t beat superheroes for some crazy game action. It’s just a shame there hasn’t been that many decent games based on them. The original Spider-man on PSone has been the only really decent game that captured what it should feel like to control a superhero & it captured the feel of the cartoon perfectly aswell.

Set for launch this Autumn/Fall. Could be a launch title or available not long after the PS3’s launch so it should be on view at E3….

    I played the X-Men action RPGs, and they were pretty fun. However, they suffered the same fate as most games in the genre: hack n slash gameplay with no noticable effect on the stroyline. If this new PS3 Marvel game can go beyond that with mezmerizing grapics and fast online play, than its sure to be a hit.
