  1. It should go without saying that if you already own one of the home console versions of X-Men Legends II: Rise Of Apocalypse, then you can almost certainly live without the PSP version.
  2. The presentation, solid storyline and good use of the X-Men characters lift Rise of Apocalypse into the top echelon of PSP games. [PSW]

OVERALL: fun for a while but sometimes too hard and an overall dull game. Full Review »

    At first I liked this game. There was a considerable effort made for it. Its a decent team based brawler with some cool maps and good artwork.At first I liked this game. There was a considerable effort made for it. Its a decent team based brawler with some cool maps and good artwork. What bogs this game down is the missions and ugly menus. At some point you will think you have cleared the first act, but you realize you don't know what to do next. You went through every map and killed bunch of monsters, and you realize you don't understand the point of the game. Its very easy to get lost once your 2 hours+ in. At that point it ceases to be fun and you won't play it again. Full Review »

    At first I thought: "WOW, a party-based RPG abot X-Men! That's awesome" But the game turned out to be pretty boring and very repetitive. AllAt first I thought: "WOW, a party-based RPG abot X-Men! That's awesome" But the game turned out to be pretty boring and very repetitive. All you do is crawling in similar looking locations (cities, temples, factories) and smashing similar looking enemies, lots of them. The combat system is mostly based on button mashing, no tactics or something like this. You have a squad of your favorite X-Men and you are allowed to change between them any time and in special points you are allowed to change your team. The main advantage of the game is that it has A LOT of awesome characters from the X-Men universe. The story is as always "Apocalypse wants to take over the world and you should stop him". Nothing new here. Overall the game is rather boring, it's some kind of Diablo-style game about X-Men. Full Review »
