Boy, I’m realling selling this game, huh?
Jokes aside, I do actually like Ultimate Alliance 3. The camera is my biggest gripe, but otherwise it’s a really fun game. And it can be pretty challenging… the AI isn’t always terrible, but there are a lot of times simple coordination and grouping can make a big difference. I find my button-mashing three-year-old to be at least on par, if not better than the computer controlled teammates at this point. I can somewhat corral him into the general direction we’re trying to be, which is more than I can say for the AI.
Technically the game is too advanced for him (and oftentimes too advanced for my five-year-old as well). Some of the boss fights require a bit of complex strategy, and pulling off the synergy moves requires some coordination they don’t quite have yet. I joked with my wife about just leaving the little one’s controller disconnected, and he probably wouldn’t know the difference. But, they love the characters, they love mashing the buttons, and I really enjoy playing with them. So we do what we can together, and then my wife and I move our save game past the harder bosses after they go to bed.
