I'm sorry, but I really enjoyed this game when it was Xmen Legends and it was on my Xbox. Forgive me Wii purists, for I have sinned and spoken against the magic Wii. I love my Wii and I think it has a lot to offer, but this game was nothing short of redundant and boring. Trading off standard button mashing for a few flicks of the wrist doesn't seem new, innovative, or exciting, not to mention that the game itself was a carbon copy of Xmen Legends with a few new skins. I don't recommend this game for people who are looking for something fresh and exciting, it JUST ISN'T THERE. However, for the Legends fans, you'll appreciate the same game you've already beaten with no graphical, auditory, or game play improvements.

This is a pretty substantial game. The RPG elements just didn't work for me. If it was just a straight beat em up I think it would have been stronger as the story is compelling and the variety of playable characters is really neat. Also multiplayer is much more fun than playing by yourself but again RPG elements really don't work when you're with your friend. No one wants to wait around for someone to upgrade powers or equipment or have a meaningless conversation with a NPC. I'd consider buying it if I ever find it for under twenty bucks, but I wished I had more fun. Rent Excite Truck.
