The Marvel Ultimate Alliance bundle is officially available today on PS4 and PC, with the Xbox One version coming out later this week. Like many expected, these are the same action games that came out all those years ago, so those who liked or hated them will have the same opinions about it. However, one thing everyone can be angry about is the lack of DLC for the first game.
It was recently confirmed by Game Zone that the first game would not have any of the DLC from the Xbox 360 version. This has angered many fans since each game costs US$40, and the developers could not even bother adding DLC exclusives like Hulk, Nightcrawler and Dr. Doom. Apparently, the Xbox One version will have the DLC, since it was originally exclusive to Xbox 360, which is another slap in the face to fans.
What makes the lack of DLC in the first Marvel Ultimate Alliance baffling is the fact that the sequel does have all of its DLC. Players will be able to use Magneto, Cable, Psylocke, Carnage and Black Panther if they decide to pick up Ultimate Alliance 2. It’s still US$40, but the fact that it feels more complete might make it the better package.
This is a huge shame, since many consider the first Ultimate Alliance a superior game over its sequel. Sure, the second game has better graphics, but the more grounded storyline based on Civil War made the developers remove a number of favorites from the game, including Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange, the latter of whom is getting a movie later this year.
If things weren’t bad enough, PC Gamer stated that the PC version of the game has a number of bugs. While it’s not unplayable like the PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight, it does make the bundle look bad, especially with the US$40 price point.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance and its sequel can be purchased on the PSN Store and Steam, with the Xbox One version coming out later this week. They cost US$40 individually and US$60 as a bundle. ?
