CheatCC says, "The first Ultimate Alliance seemed to strike a chord with many Marvel fans, and an action RPG starring your favorite heroes sure does seem like a great idea for a game. Other systems may have fared better with the sequel, but folks hoping to milk the PS2 for one more foray into the Marvel universe are in for a very rude awakening. Alliance 2 is buggy, it's ugly, and the gameplay is repetitive and frustrating. Combat can be mildly entertaining for a short while, and there is a neat selection of superpowers to tinker with. In the end, though, the game's problems are piled sky high, making it simply too frustrating to be worth bothering with."
