  • Summary: X-Men enter the realm of role-playing games with an intense story, superhero action, and multiplayer modes. The story in X-Men Legends begins when the X-Men learn that Magneto has devised a plan to give mutants the power to reign supreme over humans. To save the human race from imprisonment, you compose a four-person team from a roster of X-Men characters, including Storm, Gambit, and Wolverine. Complete each mission to strengthen your team, and unlock more characters, costumes, and treasures. Collapse

  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?

    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
