I could not wait for this game to come out. Then I reccieved it and could not wait to put it in. After playing it I can not wait to get rid of it. Being a huge X-men fan I thought this game was going to have some great cinemas and even better graphics. Owning a 360 thats what you expect from games now. This one however has stills for cinema and regular xbox graphics whats the point of making it for this console? Also once again an x-men game is built around wolverine. And only having three playale charecters(honestly I havent gotten far enough to see if there are other players) is not cool. I think they should have done so much more with this game.

Fair

Good for an arcade machine, but not $60

Despite what most people say, this game isn't that bad - unless you paid $60 for it. First, the graphics aren't great, but graphics aren't everything. Second, the wolverine levels DO have an annoying camera angle that you cannot change. But once you get past that, X-Men the Official Game is a decently fun throw back to arcade games. The levels are very short (for example Wolverine in a courtyard vs. spawning enemies for five minutes)and there are only three playable characters - each assigned to their own levels (which wouldn't seem so bad if X-Men Legends hadn't spoiled us). The three characters and their levels play differently and add some variety to what easily could have been extremely repetitive. With all that being said, the game can be beat in about 5-6 hours on the hardest difficulty (unlocking all achievements). And once you're done, there isn't any reason to go back - no scores, no time attack, no online co-op (all of which would have given it much needed replay value). Worth a rent if: 1. You're a huge X-men fan. 2. Like classic arcade brawlers (i.e. Double Dragon) 3. Want an easy 1000 achievements points.

Really Bad

Worst game ever

Yes folks it is the worst movie game I have ever played. The graphics didn't look like it was a xbox 360 game. It looked more like an playstation 2 game. You can only play three characters out of the movie. The way you played Iceman was totally dumb. They could of allowed you to move the camera when you played as Wolverine or allowed you to lock onto a target. Nightclawer....Well I have no complains about that. The only thing I like out of the game was the times I played as Nightclawer and some of the time I played as Wolverine. I guess I had high expectations before I was going to play this game and I don't know why I wanted the beat the game, which I done it in about six hours I think. I guess what I'm trying to say is this... I want those six hours of my life back and the movie is most likely better then this game.
