  2. Welcome to the Game Released September 15, 2009 Developed by Vicarious Visions, N-Space, and Savage Entertainment Published by Activision Action RPG Sequel to MUA 7.3/10 on Metacritic

  3. Plot Marvel Storylines: Secret War and Civil War Driven by cut-scenes Pros: replay value, attractive to Marvel fans, experience the story Cons: plays out more like a movie, little character development, list of objectives

  4. Characters 30+ Upgrade Picking Sides Pros: One of the coolest parts of the game, extends possibilities for gameplay Cons: Lack of character development, customizability

  5. Fusion Defining characteristic of the game Fusion Stars Pros: Aesthetics, power, encourages co-op, discovering all possible fusions Cons: Limited, repeated patterns Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUX8pf9moNY

  6. Gameplay Display Fast, action-packed, beat ‘em up Pros: pretty rapid and high intensity, keeps you focused in the game, fun Focus on upgrades- collecting orbs, talking to characters Cons: Can get monotonous, not really any strategy to attacking, just mash those buttons Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDeVFudET-c http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsZ1NUI-AA4

  7. Co-op Play Pros: Offline Cons: Online

  8. Sound and Graphics Soundtrack: very similar to that of the recent Marvel movies, grand, epic, and orchestral, helps create the environment, although can do without Graphics: Improved very much from predecessor, fusion attacks look marvelous, cut-scenes are well animated, loading screens are cool superhero art
