well i put this on my list, it got sent to me and then i read the reviews and although one reviewer thought it would be frustrating for left-handed people, i didn't find it a problem, but i just couldn't get into the game.

If you are left handed, you might not want to play

This is a fun game, however it is definately one best left as a rental. I heard the console versions of X3 were terrible, thanks to the stylus action that is not the case with the DS one. The game starts out with a smooth pace, for the most part all the powers require point and click action (like diablo), however as the levels progress the game forces you to use the d pad with the stylus at the same time. If you are left handed like I am, this presents a problem as the later levels are very difficult and require precision usage with the stylus. I actually quit the game because of this, even though I did not want to. I had fun, but I wish there was an option for left handed controls AND right handed controls (as there are in Metroid DS). Besides that, this is a good game. The graphics are good, the characters are fun, and it is really cool getting to control Magneto. If you have a Gamefly account and you like X-MEN in general, rent this game. Just don't buy it because it is short, it is hard, and if you are not right handed it is a headache.
