Quoted from Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 reviews & previews
"Changing creative teams can be risky; sometimes the new guys pick up the ball and not only run with it, but they perform a fantastic job (such as Ed Brubaker taking over the writing duties for both Captain America and Daredevil). But most of the time, you get something that's solid, if a bit uninspired -- like when Treyarch produced the decent, but not great, Call of Duty 3. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is a bit like the latter; after Raven's damn good run of X-Men Legends games and then Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Vicarious Visions took over and created an passable, but not-quite-there, Marvel superhero soiree for MUA2. MUA2 maintains the "superhero beat-em-up with flashes of Diablo RPG mechanics" structure of the previous games. You (and your friends, and the A.I. if need be) control four superheroes as they punch/kick/zap/fly their way through dungeons/maps -- all while taking the occasional break to add points and improve skill trees and powers. MUA2 also brings some nice improvements, such as a tighter (it took me about 7.5 hours to finish it the first time) and more coherent story (as opposed to MUA's kitchen sink tale that hosts Dr. Doom, Blackheart, Galactus, M.O.D.O.K., and Arcade), new fusion abilities, graphical flourishes, and gameplay tweaks (my particular favorite: for co-op play, instead of pausing the action for everyone while one person levels up, you use a quick menu that puts your character temporarily under A.I. control, without messing up the flow of your teammates)."
"While the game certainly could have used more variety in gameplay, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is still a fairly entertaining game to play in small doses. The voice acting and cut scenes are bad, but on the plus side, the game does support 4 player offline and online cooperative play. This was the only way that I played the game and really could not imagine it being much fun playing alone. If you are a fan at all of the Marvel universe, you should at least give this a rent. For everyone else, it's probably safe to just pass up."
"A colorful cast of comic characters enlivens this fun and technically uneven sequel. "
"Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 offers a robust cast list, great power sets and fun power fusion abilities"
