    I am trying to narrow down my game list to 3 or 4 launch games. One game that is on the fringe for me is Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. Anyone hear if the Wii version of this game is worth getting? Honest opinions please.

    If you liked the X-Men Legends games I'd say you'll like Ultimate Alliance. I plan on getting it for my 360 rather than on the Wii.

    It looks really good if you look at the trailer. Im also thinking of getting it, but the only thing that it lacks is that it has no online play. Yes thats right it has been confirmed that it will have no online play.

    Uh, its a launch game, and i think it was confirmed that there was going to be no online titles at launch so how does it lacking online play differ to any other launch title? They all lack online play..... Ive seen the ultimate alliance at the shop for the 360, i think it goes up to 8 players online, not entirely sure though.

    If you hadn't enjoyed X-Men Legends what in your right mind would make you think you would enjoy this? This game is not for everyone, it's pretty much for people who enjoy co-op games. You obviously do not enjoy these type of games, and they're not for you. By the way, stop being a lazy ass and abbreviating the word 'alliance'. Are you that much of a slow typer now?

    :mad5: I'm thinking about buying just because of the number of playable characters. I've been a Marvel fan for 20 years now and a game like this is a dream come true. The only thing that I'm worried about is the controls for the Wii. I heard bad things. A lot of people I talk to say that it takes quite a while to get used to.:mad5:

    That is also the case for half of the games out of the Wii, not a big thing. Im either getting this or DBZ as my other launch game along with Zelda. What should I get this or DBZ?

    I know that it appears that the majority of the people prefer the traditional controller for this game

    I know that there is a learning curve for all Wii games. I just meant that from what I was told you have to be too precise with your movements. A friend of mine compared it to the boxing on Wii Sports.

    It came in a bundle when I got my Wii yesterday. Personally, I don't like it very much. The motion controls seem too forced. It's a twitch, button masher style of game that doesn't seem to suit the WiiMote very well.

    Otherwise, it definitely has a ton of characters you can play. Also, I imagine to co-op is more entertaining than single player. If you are into Marvel comics you may enjoy since it simply because it has so many characters, scenary and other assorted other goodies.

    I bought this game and returned it the next day. I was really unhappy with the controls. To perform some of the different attacks it required you to do some awkward movements with the wiimote. Or you could just button-mash through the game using the same couple of attacks, but that just doesn't seem fun and interesting.

    I love the Marvel universe but apparently not enough to button mash my way through this game.

    I already had it for the 360, so not going to bother with the Wii version. The Live play is actually quite fun. It doesn't lend itself to the Wii mote at all for long hours of play. If you could use like a wavebird it might not be to bad.

    i bought this two days ago...i like it. yeah, like many people said, it's not for everyone. It's cool that there are so many different movements you can use per character, and it's nice there are so many characters to choose from.

    I'm a multiplayer kinda gamer, so I like it because the co-op especially....and it's pretty hard at times...some of the bosses are crazy to beat
