    The concept of Destiny really is original, and should have made for a great game, but instead we are left with a final product that feels unfinished and rushed to completion with many sacrifices made along the way.

    X-Men: Destiny is a budget-priced offering wrapped in a full-priced package. By no means is it worth the $49.99 MSRP – which is a real shame given the excellent source material Silicon Nights had to work with.

    In X-Men: Destiny, awful combat and meaningless choices combine to create a new mutation of boredom.

    I have no idea why such crimes against gamedom even get published. Simple advice: hands off! Well, at least the sound is good.

    Its ugliness assaults your senses right from the start.

    Despite the interesting premise, X-Men Destiny turns out to be a huge disappointment. Especially the Wii version, which is really awful from a technical standpoint.

    With a few more months' development this might have come good. But in this state not even Professor Xavier could convince us to play it again.

    It's still largely linear, and the gameplay mostly amounts to simplistic, repetitive beat-em-up combat, boring level design and platforming marred by a somewhat cumbersome jumping mechanic.

    Sadly, X-Men Destiny's lone mutant power is the causing of anguish. [Nov 2011, p.79]
  10. Half-baked rubbish. [Dec 2011, p.98]

    Here are some examples of good X-Men games: *X-Men Arcade *X-Men Mutant Academy *X-men Legends 1 *X-Men Legends 2 **Even X-Men: the official game

    Examples of bad X-Men games:

    *X-Men: Destiny
    *X-Men: Destiny
    *X-Men: Destiny
    *X-Men: Destiny

    Even **X-Men: Destiny, which has blocky graphics, repetitive gameplay, no facial animation, cookie-cut dialogues, chopped editing, boring platforming and powers FX that look really awful. It has a pro though in the form of the cutscenes, fashioned in the way of animated comic strips with still images; the voice acting is fine too but not enough to compensate for the rest of its unhappy features.
