Feels like an incomplete game from the start. I could tell from the frigid movement of the camera that this game was either hurried or completed by a different development team. Feels unfinished and not current generation. It was back in the mail less than 1 hour after opening it...Awful.
This game started off very boring and the graphics and voice acting made it seem very childish. Since, I felt like knocking out a few trophies, I kept going. The game does get better, but it could be that my expectations came down to this level.
The X gene attributes are far less important or influential than the powers that you choose. The outfits are a decent idea, but most of them aren't that cool and if you choose to switch, it affects the ability to go into X-Mode. X-Mode was for the most part a joke, I used Colossus most of the time, but I did switch it up as I had XP to burn.
There are flashing ledges to tell you where to climb, which assists in the easy childish feel of the game. I assume it save the developers a lot of effort since the other "ledges" in the game were merely wallpaper. After a while I liked the flashing ledges, because I was in no mood to discover where to go next.
It was fun enough, because I was stubborn enough to get the Platinum, but I wouldn't want to see the storyline with one of the other characters; I was the football guy. I would not buy this game for $5.
The faction choices did effect the story, but really had no importance, because your choice is ultimately made after battling Magneto.
Good game if you are under 15, maybe.
