Wow X-Men, I love X-men. I don't love this game. This is probably the worst game out on XBOX360 to date.
If you want a game that has X-Men characters in it and a game without any substance what-so-ever, that just blatantly rips off 3 other awesome games and tries to horribly pack them into one. Then go ahead and rent it. If you are looking for a quality Marvel X-men game, steer clear of this stink bomb and rent an X-men legends game.
The graphics seem to be a little below average. Perhaps this game wasn't designed for the 360. The unchangeable camera angles, when playing as Wolverine, were a little hard to work with. Game play extremely easy!!! Finished it on superhero level in about 15 hours of play time. Cartoon feel to cut scenes was not what I was expecting. Wolverine rocks, as always, and Nightcrawlers teleport attack is very cool.

The story for this game is pretty straightforward, but gameplay maxed out for me after 8 hours (16/16 achievements unlocked). After that, the game has no replay value.
Another factor that was disappointing was the storyboards. Where are the cinematics that looked so good in previous X-Men titles (specifically the Legends series).
With only three playable characters, the game doesn't offer much variety as each character has a unique gameplay system that isn't hard to adapt. Wolverine's was just straight cut 'em up, Nightcrawler was more combo based and required using his teleporting, while Iceman is the most annoying. Only three things you can do with him slide on ice (required), shoot your freeze beam or launch a "hailstorm" as the game calls it.
Even on the "superhero" difficulty setting, the game offered no real challenge. While the 8 hours of play time were enjoyable, this game is definitely for rental purposes only. Don't buy it!
