Too Easy

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!

This games is not worth the time, yes its a Game of the movie X-Men 3...But its just bad and trust me you do not want to buy this game

Music...it is what it is, the music is ok but, You might want to use your music for this game.

Gameplay...Its just like every other rushed title out there the Gameplay is dull, Punch, Kick, and special moves gets a little old, you can also upgrade your X-men but what's the point.

Graphics...If you ever played GUN on the 360 well the Graphics is upgraded from PS2 and Xbox, I'll give it that much. Is this Suppose to be Next-Gen you asked NO WAY!...If you have a Xbox or a PS2 just play it on those systems you'll be much happy.

Replay...No theres NO Replay in this at all, unless you love X-men that much to sit there all day trying to get everything Unlocked.

Final word, Don't buy this game, Don't Rent this Game Because its just stinks bad unless your a Hardcore X-men Fan

I was not impressed. To begin, they try to have the story line with old school animation.. (similar to speed racer which is fine in the 80's) This is 20th century, where are the upgrades. When you play the characters you have a view that has to swing around or wait till you run into the enemy to see where your going. If you like simple games rent this one. If you are looking for 360 to shine with its features look elsewhere. Not impressed! Hopefully the movie is better.
