My friend said this game was cool. I agree-partly. read on to find
The story is great! It starts out as a mission to rescue a
helicarrier with Nick Fury on it. It unfolds even more as you
progress, with a sidequest involving a person called "The Weasel"
The gameplay is adequate. kind of hard to do some of the actions
with the Wii remote. At the beginning it seems cool to open doors by
shaking the nunchuk. As you'll find out it tires fast. But wait! It
gets interesting! It seems that it wasn't necessary to learn the
actions in the first place!
The superpowers are the same, you can do 'em with actions. But it's
not necessary! The un-necessity of the actions REALLY hurts gameplay.
But then there were these cool action things were you HAD to swing the
Wii remote (completely necessary) in certain directions to hurt some
bosses! That saved it from a 1, but didn't make it pass.
I give the gameplay: 4/10
Pretty much I can summarize graphics in one word: Ouch. But I have
to put in a full paragraph. It's Ouch because a lot of the places are
dark, so is you have a darkened television screen it's even harder to
see what's going on. It's Ouch because I hate it when they only use
great graphics in movies, and that's what they did! it's Ouch because
they use the super graphics in movies and used the crappy graphics for
the superheroes. That is why it's ouch. You know how in my previous
review I said graphics can't make a game? It can only PARTIALLY help
it, or help demolish it.
I give the graphics: 2/10
And now for the sound. The sound is adequate I guess. But there
isn't much in music so I'm basing it on comments from the superheroes.
And whacking noises. You can see why its hard. Barely any music pretty
much put it at an 8, but the terrible whacking noises lowered it 2,
but then the movie sounds made it pass by giving it a point.
I give the sound: 7/10
Not very good, all there is to it is to try and get
better ending stuff by completing side quests. All there is to it.
I give the replayability: 3/10
(As with last time, challenge and frustration will be ranked higher
the better and lower the better respectively)
Hard very hard, unfortunately so hard it also made it very
Pretty much all there is for that. But frustration lowers the
challenge. So if you see 10 frustration and 0 challenge, if the
frustration was 0, the challenge would be 10.
I give the challenge: 0/10
See the challenge section and you'll know what I think about this.
I give the frustration: 10/10
If your a Marvel fan, buy a comic, the money you spent (unless it's
rare) is how much the games worth.
I give Marvel: Ultimate Alliance:
And for my last words: I regret buying this game.
