  1. 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.
  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. There are a couple of unlockable extras, but players probably won't be playing this much after beating it the first time.
  4. An unsophisticated disappointment. [Aug 2006, p.67]
  5. There are some good things about the game, but unfortunately the bad outweigh the good.
  6. 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.
  7. For portable X-Men enjoyment, I highly recommend a comic book instead. [July 2006, p.91]
