  1. Gameplay is solid, fun, and addictive. On the other hand, graphics-though they are fresh-could have been better.

    Not only is it the best in the series, by far, but it actually supports a decent combat system with a fairly balanced cast. [Jan 2003, p.102]
  3. 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.

    Not only is this the worst super hero game I've ever played, it is also the worst fighting game I've ever played. The gameplay isNot only is this the worst super hero game I've ever played, it is also the worst fighting game I've ever played. The gameplay is unresponsive, the animations are choppy, the graphics are horrid (even for a 2002 GameCube title) and it's overall one of the worst games I've ever played and almost made me lose my faith in marvel video games. Fortunately what saves it from a big fat 0/10 is the character selection. Through all of it's shortcomings, X-Men: Next Dimension delivers an arsenal of classic characters from the X-Men franchise that I was happy to see included. But even so, X-Men: Next Dimension is an embarrassment to not only the video game industry, but also the comic book industry. Full Review »
