While they have been around for a while and the gameplay is a little outdated, I love these games and love even more playing them with friends.
Welcome to the Weekly Co-Op!
The final cooperative game is the Ultimate Alliance Bundle!
Platform: PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PSP, PS2, PS3, PS4, Wii, Nintendo DS

Ultimate Alliance is one of my favorite games. The game is a top-down action-adventure game. There are 4 playable characters in a party, and the point of the game is to beat the evil villain. Each character has their own powers, and everything can be upgraded. The gameplay is a little hard to just jump into, but I would recommend playing through each game fully with someone/other people.
Ultimate Alliance 1 pits you against the evil villain Dr. Doom, and the adventure takes you across multiple worlds and universes.
Ultimate Alliance 2 pits you against a mysterious power that has been corrupting villains and heroes alike, and it is up to the Marvel heroes to save the day.
Both games feel old at this point, but they are both still pure fun and I love returning to them. The upgrading, various amount of players, and plenty of collectibles allow you to not only play through both games, but want to return to them to see what other characters can do and what combinations to put together.
The reason this is in this blog is because teamwork makes the game harder rather than easier, but I think this is a welcome challenge since the game feels very easy on Normal difficulty. Adding another player makes you more aware of everyone’s health and think about how you approach combat. I think the dynamic introduced some welcome challenge to an already fun game.
While these aren’t going to stun you with game play or graphics, these games are plenty of fun. While the bundle comes in pretty steep at full retail price ($59.99), I have gotten more than enough out of these two games to warrant the price point. Furthermore, this bundle goes on sale all the time at much lower prices. I would recommend waiting for a sale, but definitely don’t miss out on these games.
For now, that’s all! I may come back with a different topic or something, but as of now, this is the last scheduled posts for a while! I hope you were able to find something worth while in this blog!
Have a great day!
