Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is an action title with RPG elements, featuring characters from the Marvel Comics universe, and a sequel to the 2006 Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. Similar to the prequel, players select four characters in their team, which are interchangeable during the game, and allows up to 4-player co-op.
Following the Civil War story arc, an explosion caused by a battle between heroes and villains, results in the death of over 600 civilians. The public is outraged, and demands the government instill a Superhuman Registration Act, forcing meta-humans to reveal their secret identities. This divides both heroes and villains between Pro-Registration and Anti-Registration, beginning the Civil War.
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 received lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 74%, praised for its graphics and fun for fans of the previous title, but criticized for its repetitiveness and overall lack of upgrade from the prequel.
Not easy, but not particularly difficult, either. This game is a model 2-star rating. Two playthroughs are necessary, one on Hard and another on its Hardest mode, with collectibles to find along the way. A mission select makes mopping-up convenient upon completion. Note, however, you will need either two controllers to unlock the co-op trophies, or try to get them online.
Expect roughly 20-25 hours for the Platinum.
NOTE TO COMPLETIONISTS: The DLC has been removed from the PlayStation Store in certain regions, such as the US and Canada. It's been reported to still be available in Europe and Australia. The DLC contains 8 additional trophies, and cannot be unlocked unless your region copy of the game matches the region of the DLC. If you have a US or Canadian copy, you will forever be stuck with 85% completion after obtaining the Platinum.
In a nutshell, you'll need to do at least two full playthroughs: one on Super Heroic, which unlocks Legendary, then another on Legendary. Your second playthrough will be a New Game+, allowing you to keep your characters and stats. All your progress is stackable, and a mission select is later available through the Simulator.
During your two playthroughs, you'll want to focus on not dying for the Undefeated Heroes and Immortal Heroics trophies, complete all the optional mission objectives, find all collectibles, and complete 24 maps in co-op. The more of this you can complete during your two playthroughs, the less you'll need to mop-up afterwards in the mission select.
