X-men is a very good game the controls are standard and the gameplay can never be better.The storyline is the problem the story goes back and fourth and its confusing so if u never seen this movie then u pretty much wont understand the storyline.The game is 8-12 hours long if ur playing easy for the first time but if u already know the it could take 6-8 hours.This game is worth renting i unlocked all the achievements in this game it took me about 4-5 playthroughs so it may take a while to get a 1000 but its still worth it.RENT IT

First off, I have to point out, that the storyline & controls are virtually flawless! I was so impressed, that I had to take the liberty to let you gamers know how great it truly is! The controls are fluid, swift & couldn’t ask for a better battling system. When you go into Rage mode, you can do spinning claw combos that are sick to watch obliterate your enemies! While holding the Right trigger, press X or B for brutal finishers & claw attack combo moves! On a side note, I had a difficult time at first, getting past the 3-4 statues you have to leap in a sort of timed trial action. You only have a matter of seconds to pull it off. I got it around the 3rd time thankfully!
Graphics- 10 out of 10. Beautiful, fluid movements, cut scenes rock!
Gameplay-Storyline is very well stuck to the movie (not giving out spoiler of the film), rent the game/see the movie too! It’s amazing.
Controls- 10 out of 10. I couldn’t express enough, without hype, the controls are tight & awesome!
Overall, I have nothing bad, this game is the best X-Men game I’ve played in years. I hope for those who read this, go rent & buy this game!
Replay value- 10 out of 10. This has 1 of the highest replays of the many games I’ve played, & I’ll definitely be playing this game again after I beat it! It’s my new favorite X-Men game.
From the first cenematic, the tone is set for this slash-fest. A good way to describe the grapics is to take a bucket of blood, and throw it on your TV screen. In addition to having a standard health graph in the top-corner of the screen, you actually get to watch gaping, gory wounds slowly close up as you heal.
Over-the-top gore aside, there is a fun game hidden in there. You have a suprising amount of powers and abilities available to you as you progress in the game. For achievement hunters, you can pull 1000 out of it in about 4 days of game play. There's a very good guide on Gamespot that will show you where all the hidden powerups and collectables are.
On the downside of the game, it does have a recurring bug in it. Namely that thrown enemies have a chance of winding up outside the game boundries, but in a spot where they won't actually die. I've had that cause me to backstep to a checkpoint because I was in an area that I had to kill everything to move on, and couldn't. To be fair these bad throws happened about once every three hours or so on average, but it's something to keep in mind.
To sum up, I would highly recomend renting this game if you're an action or comics fan, but I couldn't reccomend shelling out the big bucks to purchase it. If you really want to own it, you're better off waiting for it to hit the 15-and-under bargain bins.
