Review: Marvel Ultimate Alliance
It’s been a long time since a linked to a game review I wrote, for a couple of reasons, really: people didn’t seem too terribly interested and it felt kind of silly.
I’ve been informed that the ol’ site here could use an infusion of silly after all the morbid and heavy posts lately, so here’s a link to my latest review, Marvel Ultimate Alliance for the Xbox.
The short version is that I really liked the game a lot. It lets you team up any four Marvel superheroes from a little over 20 choices. My team of choice was Wolverine, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, and Spider Woman. A bit heavy on the Spider-people, I know, but Spider-Man had to be in there, and Spider Woman had some neat healing effects and long-range attacks.
I’ve been working for Digital Entertainment News for 2.5 years now and have written 45 game reviews, most of them for games I didn’t enjoy playing. Overall, though, I have enjoyed the experience and I don’t thank my boss often enough for the opportunity. Here’s a public shout-out (am I allowed to give shout-outs? I guess we’ll see) to my boss: Thanks for the cool opportunity and all your patience, monk!
