Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2 is a Disney Interactive and Marvel Games went on mobile, resulting in a sequel that is bigger and bolder, though not necessarily better. The game takes full advantage of the power given to it by the several years of improvements to mobile devices; it means that the game looks awesome. With remarkable animation in 3D and suitably dramatic soundtrack, the heroes and villains await.
Take Control of Your Own League of Heroes in Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2
Just like in the previous version of the game, Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2 will let you take on the role of a SHIELD commander, though he needs to just stay on the sidelines when the battle actually comes. The main gameplay still remains as it is; turn-based tactical combat that is very much in the JRPG style. Even though the game is stuck to a “don’t fix what is not broken” approach for most part of the game, the player will still get to field a larger team, with the choice of swapping in two heroes from the reserve area when it is necessary.
Along with that twist, there’s a great deal of extra strategic depth that might not be immediately apparent. Each one of the heroes now has a customizable ability slots starting with only two slots at the beginning and adding another slot when the player reached level 10. Variations of ability builds are possible, and since the abilities can also be leveled up, it can make things a big guesstimating game when it comes to PvP play, which is not really essentially a bad thing.
There are additional chase elements that come with those extra abilities, because the player is not only collecting more heroes in Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2, but more abilities for the characters that the player has as well. Both of this is acquired through a system that uses items called Power Cells. It is very much in line with random reward mechanics found other free-to-play mobile games, but it might frustrate gamers who appreciate having more control over which heroes to pursue in the previous version.
It is also a nice thing that the duplicate treasures from Power Cells are converted into currency which allows the player to buy specific abilities. Many other things have been updated, including the way that ISO-8 can be slotted and how the heroes level up.
Promoting the heroes to level 10, 20, or 30 requires items that are primarily found through special, non-story quests which is a strange exception. It may come off as a bit of an annoyance rather than an exciting addition.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance 2 is a praiseworthy heir to its legacy; one that takes a solid foundation of both gameplay and story elements and wraps them in smoother presentation. It fits in with the other Marvel games, and unlike the previous version, this game is all for mobile gamers.
