Is anyone else disappointed with MUA 2 roster???

Recommended Posts

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 came out yesterday and I was eyeing the strategy guide only to find the character section lacking. Save a few characters they pretty much repeated the one from the first game. Now that doesn't sound so bad but they eliminated some of the first game characters only for them to appear as NPCs. The game features the story from civil war which is good but you can't play with some of the people that played a role in it. for example:

 

-Cable,Black Widow, Hercules, Moonstone, Cloak and Dagger, She-Hulk are all NPCs.

 

There are many others but these are the ones that I was looking forward to play with. Also Namor was present in the last battle of civil war(great moment by the way) and I was hoping he be playable and I think he's not even in the game, the same with Punisher. Now don't get me wrong Penance, Songbird, Green Goblin and Iron Fist are good additions but why stop there when the possibilities are endless I mean the first one had a great cast of Heroes and villain and this one kind of pales in comparison. Any thoughts???

Im hoping we get loads more characters as DLC. With MUA 1 we only got the 8 characters, im hoping this time around we get much more!

Yes. And what's up with all the characters that are in the game that you can't play???

 

I'm also disappointed in in the story (it's just not great and not epic in comparison to MUA1), lack of powers (MUA1 characters had 6-8 powers), and the shortness of the game. I know you have to play both sides, but even then it won't feel as long as MUA1.

 

Oh, and only one extra costume per character??? Really??? I've unlocked Jean's, Logan's, and Juggys and they all suck. Oh and the variant costumes dont give you anything different.

I agree the one costume unlock for character really hurts the game, at least in the first you got 4 and some of them were alternate identities like War Machine.

feel lucky, wii owners don't even get extra costumes. no juggernaut,and the wii version is based on the psp,ps2 version,which is even shorter.how the heck can the original x-men legends game which came out 5 years ago be better than this travestry. somebody dropped the ball.

Im just happy I can get my boy Sentry for the DS.

 

Have you played it??? Is he cool to play with??? I usually get the 360 version but if the DS one is good I'll get that one too.

though im pretty sure Elektra had no part in civil war, she was my favorite character to play with in mua1. i missed her in this game. The biggest problem i have with it was comparing it to mua1. There are no real consequences in the game for not completing a certain task. the costume selection is dismal to say the least. also, im a cheater, and could find no cheats!

    • I hope the Vintage Line will add some villains. So far looking good, shame my Gamestop doesn't stock Marvel legends
    • https://toynewsi.com/312-31445
        so missing Joker, Harley, & Supergirl {https://toynewsi.com/312-30639}
    • I do like the DC Injustice Hiya figures so many repaints they could have given us
      Silver Sable just needed to use a Rogue head & body Blink  seems like another They could even just do total reissues on that Toybiz card too. Green suit Prof X comes to mind. I'm sure many would have bought him. Archangel with a death head as accessory.  
    • For the first time since this panel began, ZERO mention of any 3.75” in the works. I understand it has “been shelved” for awhile but to actually see nothing or hear no news saddens me. I now know what Buzz and Woody felt when Andy grew up..... left in the dark and forgotten. 
    • Well this was a very weak SDCC for me. Not as in I didn’t like what was shown, because I did like quite a bit actually but mainly from a quantity standpoint. There was far less shown here than what we traditionally see at SDCC and drastically far less than what we saw at ToyFair this year. The reason for this seems to be quite clear as they even referenced this in the panel slide show and that is because they are really promoting the upcoming cons and plan to keep more reveals saved for all of those cons respectively. If this is the new motus operandi, than I will just learn to taper my expectations for future SDCCs is all. Pros for me: 1. Blink 2. Skullbuster 3. Kingpin 4. Xavier 5. Silver Sable 6. AIM Soldiers. Pushing the army builders is just smart business. Bring on Shield, Hand, etc. 7. Vintage Wave 2 is stellar Cons for me: 1. Majik for Walgreens? Great to see another release of Majik but not at the expense of a FF4 character...especially when they could’ve just thrown her in as the bonus 8th fig without the BAF piece for the 2019 X-men Wave. 2. No mention of HasLab at the panel? WTF. I don’t need a reveal of what they have planned but at least an acknowledgement that they know it exists... Did they not notice that the first project funded at over $4.5 million dollars, almost doubled its goal AND was for the 3.75 Scale (ya know, the scale that Hasbro thinks marvel collectors don’t exist for anymore?) 3. No mention of 3.75 (that was practically a given so trust me, I wasn’t holding my breath) 4. No mention of 12in (since 12in was also absent at ToyFair, I guess this officially means they are “resting” the line). Shame. 5. Archangel deluxe set for $30? Same with Majik, should have just been slotted into the X-men waves or something. It’s the SAME figure as before but with extra heads and an Apoc claw arm and that’s worthy of a “deluxe” figure and for $30??? To be clear, I’m not upset about the fig be re-released by any means but given what I stated above, I just don’t get it. 6. No mention of any new Legends assortments or extensions to existing assortments (like Knights for example) 7. No Thor figs revealed. Was hoping for at least a tease of another Ragnarok Wave since we are getting a 2nd BP Wave. BP definitely blew away box office expectations to which Hasbro was clearly not prepared for BUT Ragnarok also made close to $1B and far out-grossed the previous 2 installments... Also, at the end of the day, I’d rather see a follow up MCU wave to Ragnarok that could possibly contain Korg, GrandMaster, Skurge, Heimdall, etc...than to NOT see ANY more Thor comic or movie figs... 8. Accessory Packs? Neca makes accessory packs/dioramas all the time and Legends is by far a stronger selling and wider/deeper IP. Neca makes packs of stands that support alt Head sculpts for crying out loud! (man do I love Neca) The money being left on the table here by Hasbro is nothing short of astonishing and it’s almost inconceivable to think that they aren’t at least aware of this...
