  1. 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.
  2. A technically sound, if a bit too easy and short action-adventure. The three significantly different heroes are a nice touch. But why buy the movie licence, if the game has little to do with the movie? [June 2006]
  3. 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.

    This game is definitely not a perfect one, but its gameplay variety and original voice cast keeps it from being bad.
    Variety is due to the selection of characters, who have different style of playing, but brawling gets a little flat after a while. Most of the levels are not made of lined up areas, but big, or mediocre arenas , where the entire level takes place, giving a game sometime a ring-fight tone, which makes some levels uninteresting and boring. For fans of the x-men universe, this game is a solid "go for it" , for those , who really just want this game for some action, leave it...
