The new video game Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is a pretty big waste of time. I’m kind of mortified that I took the time to play it through to the end. However, there was one thing at the end that almost made it worth my time; Hulk reciting a series of haiku.
Allow me to save you $60.00 and a bunch of time by sharing a video of the audio file:
As far as the game goes, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 commits a few major gaming offenses.
- The enemies all feel the same. The big difference is that some of them take more time to kill. Otherwise, everything feels very repetitive.
- It rewards you greatly for breaking things in the scenery. Rewarding a player for doing pointless things like breaking scenery means that they will. It’s an annoying waste of time.
- Unlocking characters. I’m pretty tired of having to unlock characters. Why all of the hoop jumping?
I love the characters. I wanted to enjoy the game… but I can’t. It’s just not very good.
