  1. Gameplay is solid, fun, and addictive. On the other hand, graphics-though they are fresh-could have been better.
  2. And XND succeeds to large extent, offering a control scheme that makes the fighting easy for beginners to get into the game, while offering enough finesse moves and fast action for fighting veterans.
  3. One of the biggest problems with this version is the controller. It will cause much frustration when you are in the heat of battle, if it wasn't for the shrunken d-pad and awkward placement of the buttons, this would have been much more enjoyable game.
  4. That there are better fighting games out there, and better uses of the X-Men license.
  5. Even the most ardent X-Men fans should probably just rent Next Dimension rather than buy it.
  6. Outside of some lethargic controls, there is definitely some fun to be had with this brawler.
  7. Besides a real lack of polish on the models and backgrounds in Dimension, it just feels mediocre when stacked against competition like "DOA," "Kakuto Chojin," and "MK Deadly Alliance." [Jan 2003, p.81]

    Great gameplay. Every person you can use are verry different. Cyclops laser and Volverine's Claws. They both sound realy good.

    I loved playing this game as Gambit! It was so much fun! I especially loved the all locations that we were able to fight in, and the moves are pretty good too! Expand

    The graphics don´t look so cool and the effects coulld be better. But you can play as most of the X-MEN or the BROTHERHOOD. And the spacial attacks are easy. It´s a nice game, but there are better ones around. Expand
