  1. I demand a sequel. You hear me Activision, I must have it. There are so many possible story lines and fresh villains to use. I would easily pay upwards of two-hundred dollars for a sequel.
  2. The beat "em up is a genre that has quietly faded to the side and hasn't had many revolutions on the consoles in recent years. X-Men: Legends takes that style of gameplay, adds a ton of depth to it, four-player support and quite frankly is one of the best X-Men games I've ever played.

    The best game set in the X-Men universe yet.
  4. Inadequate controls and chaotic 4 player co-op mode keep it from being a great game, but fans of the comics and movies should have plenty to be happy about.
  5. 80
    If an absolutely brilliant story, finely detailed characterization, and faultless attention to canonical detail are what you're after, then, X-Men Legends is not what you're looking for. If you want a good game, though, and an especially good game to play with a couch full of superhero fans, this is the game to get.
  6. Good for fans, but action-RPG gamers probably already have a better game in hand.
  7. How is it possible to make a tedious game about the adventures of heroic mutants with super powers?

    So far, this game looks pretty cool. It hasn't come out yet. But I bet I could I figure out the 15 characters is the game. For sure, there will be Wolverine and Storm. And, on the the screen shots, Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Cyclops, Iceman, and Colossus. And, based on an interview I saw with the game producer, Gambit, Nightcrawler, and Marrow (?) will probably be in the game. That's 9 guys. My best guess for the next six is: Pyslocke, Beast, Archangel, Forge, Havok, and maybe Banshee. But hopefully some underdogs may appear like Shadowcat or Shatterstar. But it supposed to be based on the Ultimate X-men, so I don't think those two will be in the game. So far, based on reviews and screenshots, and the fact that the game won't come out for about 8 months, I'd say this game will be SPECTACULAR! Expand

    I loved this game! I was suprised to see Alex (Havok) as a bad guy... although he may be unlockable. I loved Jamie's cameo and that Kurt was so useful. Cyke was also useful no matter what others say, I could do 759 damage in one hit from him. Expand

    It is fun to play as all of your favorite X-Men characters with 4 at a time. You fight many kinds of enemies and the fighting strategies you can use in this game are endless. Expand
