is this the pic of the wolverine fan suit or is it a diffrrent x-men look at the pic carefully
The X-Men are by far the best of the best and to come out with this game is very disappointing, it is way to short and the options you are offered for characters is poor too. Total customizble characters and a storyline that didnt last one day would have made this all a little better. I can deal with the graphics and the fighting abilities but it was a very lame game. You didnt even pick a said until the last mission which was to just beat up Hodge and his sentinals. The idea was there but the effort fell very very very short. 2 thumps down, its sad to see Marvel and Activison come out with this garbage.
I thought this game was going to be far better than what it actually was. I think they could have made a huge improvement all around. I hated how short the game was and how linear it was as well. The faction type and choices made little difference and once you beat it you could just go back and make the opposite choice and it still didn't change much.
I hated the way you went back in to find things when you replayed a mission you were sent back to the main menu and had to reload the character over again. I found the overall combat system to be worthless in terms of mutant powers you could technically not use them at all and still be able to finish the game.
Overall i would not recommend this game to anyone and would advise people to wait to buy it until it's like $9.99 used.
As soon as i saw this, I wanted it. Although now that I take the time and read, I realize there are only 3 playable characters. In my opinion that takes away from making a new mutant. It seems as though there are 2 sides, 3 characters, which makes 6 storylines?? It doesn't seem like there will be many options. I do hope the game exceeds my expectations. Just gotta wait and see.
Well, I love X-Men and I love RPGs, so I think this looks pretty promising. I always look forward to these games. And I wonder what the new mutants are. I don't know... you can never be sure with these superhero games anymore, you know?
Good but not worth $60
I was excited for this game. But now after playing it I realize it is definitely NOT worth buying unless you are a hardcore X-Men fan. The story is about 4 hours long and no matter if you choose the brotherhood or X-Men there is very little difference. I thought it was going to be choices like if you even help the Brotherhood a little you can't go X-Men. The alliance factor in the pause menu means nothing at all. And in the end you, as a regular mutant who has just recently found your powers, take out the person who killed Professor X? That is ridiculous. I enjoyed playing the game but after getting all 50 achievements in less than 24 hours I realized you should not buy.
If only this game was as good as the previews made it seem to be. I'll start off by saying the story was horrible. The game solely relies on the wow factor of seeing you're favorite characters enter the story but this is quickly reversed by the horrible voice acting. A lot of the characters personalities are nothing like they are in the comics. The cut scenes are riddled with glitches. The bad guys are generic and annoying. When the game wants to increase the difficulty they just add in some extra generic bad guys. There are about 5 different generic and maybe 3 unique bad guys. This game took me 6 hours to beat. Waste of money and time.
Your Destiny is Way Too Short
You play as a new mutant that has your powers awakened when Magneto apparently attacks a rally about peace between mutants and normal humans. Your quickly drawn into the intrigue around this attack and can either take missions from the x-men or the brotherhood.
On the downside the story is rather short so the amount of depth and intrigue to be had is rather limited. In fact, this game can easily be beaten in a single afternoon.
X-Men Destiny is a rather straight-forward beat-em up with little to offer outside of simplistic button mashing pleasure and a simple upgrade system.
The boss fights are interesting, but the game only features a few actual boss fights with most bosses actually being mini-bosses that will pop-up in later stages ad nauseum.
Graphically the game is alright I guess, but a lot of the character models are over used and considering how short this game is it could have at least provided a more diverse cast of opponents to face-down. The game also suffers if you play as the girl character since her face will constantly poke through that scar she wears in the various in-game cut scenes.
I honestly can't remember if there was background music in this game or not and just beat it an hour ago. So, if it is there it is extremely forgettable. And, to add to the sound problems sometimes the characters seem to have massive drops in terms of being audible. This game offers a rather poor presentation overall and could have really benefited from the inclusion of the intro song from the original cartoon series.
The game does offer a few story paths and power paths that you could play with, but I don't find either option to be all that appealing to be honest.
Lasting Appeal: 5
Really good! Could still be better. WAY too short
It's fun ripping through people with a power of your choice, no doubt, but I felt what this game did in game gameplay, it came up short in story and length. The game was too short. I haven't even had it 24 hours and I finished the game on normal. And it wasn't in one continuous play. The power upgrading is awesome, and all the X-genes make customizing your powers pretty fun. I'm reckless, so I went with density and full on offensive powers. It's definately fun, but I don't think it's worth $60. If you wanna try it, I'd recommend waiting for the price to drop.
Terrible, DO NOT BUY
I got this game as a freebie due to a coupon and I still feel like I overpaid. I've read other reviews elsewhere that make reference to the fact that the feel of the game is if though it was released unfinished. I think that about sums it up. This game is terrible and as a huge X-Men fan, this is very disappointing due to the fact that the story has so much potential. It would have been better if they had released nothing at all then associate anyone with this debacle. And it is a debacle. Beyond inconsistencies, timing issues, etc., I played as the energy projection character who apparently can't hit anything right in front of them or more than 10 feet away. And for a 4 gig install, I expect much, much better graphics. I'd say they were around PS2 worthy. It feels flimsy, unprofessional and unworthy of the Marvel brand. Stay away from this game. You were warned.
