Any way you slice it, Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a fun, satisfying game that should appeal to casual Marvel fans as well as those who have a years worth of Spider-Man underoos squirreled away for "emergencies". It also very consciously leaves large swaths of the Marvel Universe unexplored, thus clearly setting up for a host of sequels that will surpass it as handily as it has surpassed the two X-Men Legends games. So if you dig this game, you've likely got plenty to look forward too. Unless you've got glaucoma. Then probably not so much.

In the end, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is a nice refresher from the X-Men Legends series, and a game no comic fan should miss. If you enjoy the arcade-style titles of this nature (such as Gauntlet or the previous Legends titles), you,d also do well to pick the game up. With the versions being almost identical other than superior graphics for the 360 and a few exclusive characters scattered throughout the consoles, there,s not a lot to make you pick one over the other. If you have an Xbox 360, however, you,d do well to pay the extra bucks to get the 360 version, as the superior graphics and Live gameplay are well worth it. Don,t worry, true believers, because Raven has proven once again that not all comic-based games are sub-par.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a really good game for the PlayStation 2. If you ever wanted to have the opportunity to control over twenty Super Hero legends in one game then this is your chance.
GameSpot (Oct 30, 2006)
Beyond being a well-made and accessible action RPG, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance captures the essence of the Marvel Universe, an incredible feat considering the breadth of the source material, though there are just enough omissions to easily justify a sequel. This is simply a must-have for Marvel fans, though the action itself remains satisfying enough for those in search of a good dungeon crawler to enjoy.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance is certainly worth picking up. With an adequate campaign and more playable comic book characters than you can shake a stick at, plus bonus side missions for all of them, you’re definitely getting more than what you paid for. Along with well-executed team play and a campy-yet-passable story, you’ll really feel like you and your friends have control of all your favorite heroes.
IGN (Oct 25, 2006)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is one of those games that doesn’t have a ton of faults, yet isn’t among the true classics of gaming. Despite a few welcome wrinkles to combat and character customization, this is pretty much the same game we’ve seen before. The level design and puzzles are a snooze, lacking any innovation. But who cares? This game is about gathering a few friends and laying the smack down on some villains. MUA is not a brilliant game, but it’s fun. And that’s all that really matters. If you love the pitter -patter of fingers on buttons, grab this game. It will satisfy the comic-book geek buried deep in your soul.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a fun and addictive action RPG that tries and succeeds in improving on the genre. For anyone that has played X-Men Legends or Baldurs Gate I highly recommend purchasing this title as well as anyone that has ever fantasized about having super powers. With over 20 superheroes to choose from chances are your favorite superhero is playable.
UOL Jogos (Dec 08, 2006)
"Marvel Ultimate Alliance" tem as mesmas qualidades da série "X-Men Legends" e quem já passou pelos antecessores deve amar o novo game de cara. Mesmo quem não suporta a parte RPG desses títulos pode se divertir, pois o jogo cuida automaticamente do desenvolvimento dos personagens, se assim quiser o usuário. Com uma extensa lista de heróis e vilões, e um conteúdo extenso, é um jogo que valoriza o investimento. Melhor ainda se você for fãs dos quadrinhos.
Worth Playing (Nov 09, 2006)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is clearly a worthy successor to the X-Men: Legends series and a great addition to the Marvel Universe's games. With great multiplayer fun, epic boss battles, tons of unlockable content and strong online play, any comic fan looking for a party game would do well to pick up a copy of Ultimate Alliance.
GameSpy (Nov 01, 2006)
There are only a small number of superhero games being released this year, and an even smaller number are actually worth your time. With Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, there's a lot of fun to be had with the slew of comic legends at your disposal. If you're a fan of X-Men Legends, then it's safe to say that MUA is right up your alley. If you dig either dungeon crawlers or some of the biggest icons in comics, you'll probably enjoy what Ultimate Alliance has to offer. Considering the civil war currently going on in the Marvel books, it's a joy to see our heroes working together in all of their glory.
Game Revolution (Nov 15, 2006)
Although Marvel: Ultimate Alliance does not change the superhero formula set by X-Men Legends, it does capitalize on it—really working to instill personality in every aspect of the game, from the superheroes’ biographies, to their powers, to the teams, to the neat and varied boss battles. A must for Marvel fans, a good buy for everyone else, Ultimate Alliance is an epic in an old package, kind of like those massy boxes of comics you have hidden away in your attic, gathering ebay value like dust.

Sans surprise, Marvel : Ultimate Alliance copie/colle ce qui avait été fait avec X-Men Legends : même style graphique, même système de jeu, même construction. Les nouveautés apportées sont minimalistes et bien qu'on retrouve une fois de plus les problèmes des précédentes productions Raven Software, le plaisir d'incarner une tripotée de super-héros dans un jeu encore plus furieux que ses modèles l'emporte sur les quelques déceptions émaillant la découverte du soft.
1UP (Nov 07, 2006)
Ultimate Alliance is more than enough fun to last through the main story -- especially if you bring a couple friends -- but whether you'll be returning to it again and again over the course of months is dependent largely on your superhero obsession and tolerance for repetition.
