The first question is how did this game make it to market? 2. Why does this game require an install to present some of the worst graphics this generation? This game feels as though it wouldnt have been good as an live or PSN title. The graphics are deplorable the combat is weak the story is terrible which is always amazing for a game based on a series which basis is from print.
I tried to play this game then found myself asking why am I trying to play this game this is what gamefly is for. I didnt think it was possible to bring a Marvel game out as bad a Sega's recent outing but wow Silicom Knights and Activision has pulled. The less we say about this game the better
Now the thought of this game is fun. Controls are the same a repedetive for the 3 different powers. Plot really is the same no matter what side you choose. Glitchy cut scenes, audio problems. Upside is the game is fun the first time you beat it.... that can take maybe 5 hours. Would have been a amazing game just seemed like they needed to take another couple months developing it.
X-Men Destiny is a great concept on paper. You play a civilian who's life is about to change when you find out you're acutally a mutant. You get to choose between 3 characters with different backstories and then you get to choose your abilities.
That premise alone got me to rent this game. Once I started playing it though, I realized this was about 10 years late. The graphics are awful - like PS2 quality. The gameplay is boring and repetative - once you get your ability, you basically mash down two buttons for quick attack and heavy attack. Over and over and over again. Talking to other characters throughout the game is BORING. There aren't any custom responses, you just choose what questions you want to ask people.
This is probably one of the worst RPGs I've ever played. Shame, because I know I was looking forward to an X-Men game that wasn't a fighting game.
