  1. The three main characters are very detailed and authentic to their film counterparts. Wolverine is bigger than the others; Ice Man retains that young look, while Nightcrawler looks as weird as usual. The animation is solid, as well.
  2. A solid and fun action game featuring one of the coolest superhero teams ever. With an excellent story with plenty of twists and turns and a host of familiar characters, fans will certainly have a lot to enjoy despite the linear levels.
  3. It's a good-looking, smooth-playing title that captures some of the mystique (ha-ha) of the comics and movies. Where it fails is in the limitations placed upon it.
  4. Some of his levels are filled with ridiculous amounts of enemies, and even though the levels appear to have multiple stages or sections, there isn’t a checkpoint in sight. I love a challenge, but I hate mindless repetition.
  5. One upside to it is that the game is roughly six to eight hours in length so if you have a weekend to kill then this one may be up your alley. It certainly looks pretty, sounds great, and the ragdoll physics are put to great use. It just would have been nice to play a challenging game instead of one where nothing is balanced out.

I guess the story is good, but the controls are weird and the camera is terrible. The worst here is how rushed the game is. Nonetheless, the upgrading battle features are really cool, and the fact that you can play as 3 different characters pretty much saves the game. Full Review »
