More after the jump:
Here is the opening scene form the game.
The game has essentially three storylines. The first two are loosely based on Marvel's Secret War (the Bendis version not the Shooter version) and Civil War. The Third story is an original one made for the game. Like the first game, players are taken to several popular places in the Marvel Univers, including Latveria, Stark Tower, and Wakanda.
And while the game touts the ability to choose a side in the Civil War (Pro or Anti Registration), this doesn't really make that much of a difference to the gameplay and only lasts for a couple of missions. Like the original game, there are bonus missions that can be used to unlock extra playable characters. I am not an avid gamer and was able to finish the game, including the bonus missions, over the weekend.

Here is the trailer:
All in all, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 is not a greatest game. But, it's not a bad one either. It is definitely worth a rental. Otherwise, I'd wait until it's on sale. And if you do buy it. Get it at Amazon here and help this site..
