The tweaks being made to gameplay and the game's overall presentation work well. The new fusion system is a fun nod to the kind of interactions that fans have been dreaming and writing fan fiction about for ages. There's a lot to like here, and that's even before you take into account the game's story, which bumps up the game's appeal another notch. As of right now, the minor issues we pointed out don't appear to be anything that will tarnish the good impression the game has made. Anyone eager to get in on the action and fight for the side of their choice should look for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 this September on just about every platform under the sun. Look for much more in the coming months".
