For those well versed in Marvel's Universe, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 combines two of the conglomerate's most popular storylines or recent times – Secret War & Civil War. What this means for the rest us is a pretty rudimentary action RPG that allows you to blow things up as such comic heavyweights as Spiderman, Captain America and Iron Man.

It's all rather fun at first, with the player using a 4-man squad at any given time, as opposed to being limited to just the one specific superhero. How this works is basically you can switch between characters at any time mid-battle, and as the game progresses you can switch between anyone of the twenty-four heroes and villains that inhabit the game.

The main problem with it, though, is that it all gets boring pretty quickly. Nothing much changes from level to level, and the graphics even look substandard when compared to the more modest-looking next-gen titles recently released.

The option to unlock alternate costumes and upgrades is a plus, but it still doesn't save a game that will only replayed by younger comic fanatics.
