It has been almost 10 years since Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was released to rather favorable reception, the game took the best parts of the X-Men: Legends series and expanded the characters and story to include the rest of the Marvel Universe. Now the game has been ported to PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam release), so does the game hold up years later? Sort of.
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance opens with the nefarious Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil attacking a SHIELD Helicarrier for reasons we learn later. Soon after players are hopping between many well-known locales such as Atlantis, Mephisto's Realm, and even Asgard. The story is separated into five acts that as a whole feel like an entire Marvel comic book crossover event. From start to finish I was eager to know where my next mission would take me. As you visit different areas in the game you'll meet a wide array of Marvel characters such as Weasel, Wyatt Wingfoot, Wong, and even Uatu. Of course, you'll also bump into a good number of Marvel villains some well known and some rather obscure (Fin Fang Foom fans holla!).
After the very negative reception surrounding the broken port and the lack of DLC, Marvel and Activision hope to quell some of the anger with a couple of updates.
Hopefully this shows an interest in possibly making a third entry in the series.
Insomniac Games unveiled a trailer for a brand new Spider-Man game exclusively for Playstation 4 during the press conference tonight.
LEGO Marvel's Avengers is the spiritual successor to 2013's LEGO Marvel Super Heroes but this time, it's sticking to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in what I found to be an enjoyable experience that is held back from reaching "True Believer" status.
While LEGO Marvel Super Heroes told an original story that had decades of comics to back itself up with, LEGO Marvel's Avengers pulls directly from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story primarily covers the plots of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron but also includes sections based on Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, and Iron Man 3. After finishing the main story I was rather displeased by it. It does a faithful retelling of the movies but what disappointed me about this was how soon it was over and how much was glossed over.
The force is strong with this one.
Another day, another new series from Telltale Games. This time, it's with Marvel.
