Though the game has been out for over a year-and-a-half, I just picked up Marvel Ultimate Alliance this weekend. I don't play a lot of console games, but every now and again...
I'm currently on the low end of the learning curve in this game, but even so... how is it Thor can be killed by a punk like Bullseye?!? Sure, Bullseye is a harsh baddy for the likes of Daredevil and Spider-Man, but Thor?!
He's the freakin' Norse God of Thunder, bitch!
Odin's boychild should be able to just stand there under whatever Bullseye dishes out without enduring a scratch. But not in Ultimate Alliance. No, no... Under my able leadership, I managed to Mjolnir's master killed in nothing flat.
"Is that Midgard Serpent?!" I demanded. "Is this Ragnarok!?!? Get off your ass!"
Then I lost Captain America, too.
Let me tell you, after having buried Captain America earlier this year, it was particularly harsh to lose him in-game as well. That really stung.
I cried at the console.
Spider-Man and Wolverine finally took Bullseye out.
The game's a bit hard on heroes, but I sure do like it.
