    Like so many other licensed games, seems to focus more on the presentation and style of the characters than the actual game itself.

    Of the three versions, the GameCube release of X-Men: Next Dimension is the best -- strictly in a relative sense, of course.
  3. 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]

    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 »
