Simply Stated: The graphics were average (not exactly a bad thing). The ability to mix-n-match mutant abilities were a cool aspect. Fighting along side other famous and known mutants were cool. The controls were simple. Definitely a botton masher type game.
Over all: It took about 5-6 hours to complete. If your a x-men fan, this is a fun game to play through at least once. Twice if you want to try a different ability. Dont expect a rich story or anything lavish. Just enjoy the abilities in the gameply.
This is one of those games that I just threw into my Game Q due to not much else being out that I had interest in playing. With that being said, it was still a disappointment. I only played the game an hour and a half and that was only because the game constantly threw achievements in my face so I thought "Why the heck not?". However, X-Men Destiny plays like a bad first gen Xbox beat-em-up. It has clunky controls and terrible graphics for a game during this day and age. There are 'Invisible Walls' littered throughout the game and the choice system in the game is your generic "Bad or Good Guy" choice with those being X-Men or the Brotherhood. They could've done so much more with this game. First off, with a game like this, add multiplayer. No one wants to sit around through a bad "Beat-Em-Up" by themselves. This game felt like Dungeon Siege and that game is bearable only through co-op. Second thing, if we're "choosing" our own path and powers, why not just let us create our character? There's no reason to make three generic chuds to choose from (the orphan, the rebel kid and the football jock). And third and foremost, no generic brainless waves of enemies. Please. I chose hard and was breezing through this game only becoming frustratingly annoyed at the fact my attacks were missing because of bad collision detection. Activision, stop doing this to yourselves. You used to be a respectable bunch. Collect your Tony Hawks, Guitar Heroes, and this trash and get back to the drawing board.
