You are a human who turns mutie when everything goes crazy at a rally trying to allow humans and mutants to come together and live in peace. The purifiers are capturing mutants, and with you new found powers you must stop them.
You can choose from 3 different characters a Japanese girl, a jock, or a military man. You then can choose from 3 different power sets. Strength, Energy projectile, or shadow blades. You gain xp and level up your powers. You run into different xmen and brotherhood members.
THE GOOD: - Its x men, you see familiar faces. - some cool powers - you can collect costumes and x men powers (wolverine healing, colossus defense, juggernaut strength. These are only passives tho)
THE BAD: - Outdated graphics - Linear, no exploring - Horrible voice acting - two types of attacks (light and heavy) - not many combos - repetitive missions - bad story
Verdict: Its a pass but you can rent it if you are bored. With the amazing upcoming games I would say wait till early next year to pick this up.
Felt like I was playing a Playstation era game. The story was generic.(Final boss was a big robot that used a combination of other characters' moves, where have I seen that before...) Voice "acting" was off. Controls were overly simplistic. The X button(go figure) definitely gets a workout. The story is about five hours long. I actually feel sorry for middle school age people who save up allowance to buy games, only to be rewarded with this type of trash. In a nutshell: X-tremely forgettable.

This a good one I thought I was gonna be one the X Men but the twist on it still made out for a pretty good game the power pulls were picked wisely I only wish there was more environment used to play with. But you can definitely get your " I wanna whoop someones tail off in this game, plenty of baddies to go against. I found myself caught looking for secret stuff a lot, there is a repeat play on this game I like that cause my character just got really good:)
