  1. If the GBA is the only gaming device you own, and you are craving for an X-Men game, then by all means give X-Men: The Official Game a shot. But for the rest of us, I would suggest passing on the GBA version and instead pick up one of the more impressive console versions.
  2. As is typical of movie tie-ins, it's a by-the-book side-scroller with all of the requisite combat and exploration that you'd expect from that sort of thing.
  3. If you have played this game on the home consoles, playing this version will be a disappointment. However, taken in context of what is offered here, the game does a decent job of portraying the characters.
  4. There are a couple of unlockable extras, but players probably won't be playing this much after beating it the first time.
  5. Nintendo Gamer
    An unsophisticated disappointment. [Aug 2006, p.67]
  6. Nintendo Power
    For portable X-Men enjoyment, I highly recommend a comic book instead. [July 2006, p.91]
  7. To fans of the comics, movies and other mutant-themed games: wait for that next stellar title.
  8. There are some good things about the game, but unfortunately the bad outweigh the good.
  9. Honestly, X-Men: The Official Game for the GBA does one thing and does it poorly. It's the same platformer/brawler that seems to be the generic genre for licensed games and resembles most every X-Men game from the 16-bit era.
