Im a big fan of the Xmen and fighting games can be fun... this game was okay. Personally, it wasn't worth it for me to fight a battle over and over and over again until Ive mastered every character just to beat it plus its one of those games where when yer done playing, your hands are throbbing in pain.
I just rented this game yesterday and already I am sick to death of this game. It takes ten minutes to load between screens, the characters are unresponsive, even (supposedly) fast charaters like Wolverine or Beast are painfully unresponsive. This is the worst fighting game I have ever played, and I have played alot of them. I do appreciate the character selection and the destructable environments, however the special moves are difficult to execute in the heat of battle and I'm sorry but characters like Cyclops and Phoenix, using them is just like cheating because you can just sit back and do 2 or 3 of the same moves over and over again and win. This game sucks, the only reason I gave it a three is because it is an x-men game. Go rent or buy the x-men legends series if you really want to play a decent video game. Mortal Kombat this game is not!!!!!
This is a really nice fighting game. Story mode will eventually let you change character to continue with the story. The versus mode has a nice set of characters. The arenas are really nice, I personally liked that in the fight if you hit someone with a power that will knock them back near another area they will actually go there (for example in the mansion the first place is in a office u can hit the character out the door them you will be fighting in the hall and if you do it again you will go outside) so that makes the game more fun. The only problem i think it was that by the end some of the fights are really difficult and since you change characters you need to get use to that character and his moves to beat some of the harder mutants. I also didn't like having to fight one of this robots that look like apocalypse the problem was that you have a certain time to beat him (all the fights have time but with him you have to beat him in that time or else you lose no matter your health) and its really short and he is really powerful and every time you hit him he blocks. But overall this was a good game really fun.
