  1. Although it isn’t topnotch in the gameplay department, it is faithful to the design of the X-Men and is definitely a collector’s treat.
  2. The game has depth (if you give it the proper time it needs to shine through), but there is very little to hold onto until this aspect of the game becomes apparent.

    A solid but not super fighter featuring impressive graphics that's perfect for X-Men fans.

    Unfortunately, what could've been a pretty good fighting game turns out to be barely average, if it weren't for all the nice extra features this title has.
  5. While it has nothing on "Marvel vs. Capcom,"" Mutant Academy" plays uniquely enough to warrant a chance from fighting game aficionados, as well as from X-Men fanatics, old and new.

    It's above average but definitely not the best of mutant breed.
  7. With the exception of its unique super-move system, it doesn't really have any strong points for or against it.
  8. In the end, this is about as standard as fighting games come, though the strong graphics and smooth framerate keep it a step ahead of total mediocrity.
  9. If you're buying this game expecting something as refined and polished as one of Capcom's fighting games, you're going to be disappointed. Others looking for something new will be disappointed as well.
  10. What's the point of having 3D graphics if the gameplay doesn't even make an attempt to break into the Z-axis?
  11. You won't exactly struggle with the controls, but they are nowhere near the excellence seen in the "Tekken" or "Street Fighter EX" series.
