    I returned this after a night of play. This is a button-masher and the Marvel characters are really just skins for what are basically two character types: distance and melee. Playing as wolverine feels exactly like playing as the Thing. Playing as Iron Man feels exactly like playing as Spiderman. Yup-gameplay has all the depth of Gauntlet. The RPG element adds little-powers improve as I returned this after a night of play.

The RPG element adds little-powers improve as ememies get stronger-you would scarcely know it was there if you let the process automate itself (an option). With all the characters on the screen at the time it is hard to tell if you are trying to beat up a bad guy, or say Iceman. Level design looks boxy, like it was done with some really basic kit. Graphically, it is (was) the ugliest game I owned for the 360. The plot and dialogue are all very kitchy and aimed squarely at the younger gamers. I'm glad I unloaded it before becoming too invested in it. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Ok I had really high hopes for this game after all the positive feedback it's received from here and actual critics. But I was sadly disappointed. I have played both Xmen Legends games and loved them both, even with the occasional flaw. This game started out ok, but didn't last. I decided just for fun to unlock all the playable characters. This left me feeling really disappointed. There were a total of maybe 12. Marvel has a huge world of characters yet the character list was shorter than a 10 year olds attention span. Secondly, the DLC is no longer for sale so the characters that are DLC only are no longer able to be reached. Now lets hit some of the characters, Wolverine and Deadpool both are mutants with a healing factor, so ideally it would be part of the character, but nope, it's part of costumes you can unlock. Another major flaw is the super attack you eventually unlock for every character, if you do yours everyone on your team that has it available follows suit, wasting possible 1 to 3 super finishers. Thirdly stairs.... Stairs in this game are so terrible that when you land on them while jumping you slide down them. Last on my list is Deadpools teleport ability instead of a double jump. While sometimes you could do it through doors others wouldn't allow you to, yet hitting a certain spot on the door and poof you're through. Then at a point you need to double jump to make a set of 3 gaps where dragon statues breath fire, Deadpool just sticks in mid air and swings his Katana's. All in all i payed 6 bucks for this game used in a bundle with Forza 2 and wish i hadn't. do not play this game!!!! Expand

    Really overrated. It's a repetitive button masher, with way too much text, and an annoying virtual camera that you have to continually correct. You basically run through levels killing the same creatures over and over. The character selection is missing favs like the Hulk and Cyclops, while including plenty of lame ones like Spider Woman, MoonKnight, and Luke Cage. The end where you Really overrated.

The end where you fight Doom is ridiculously repetitive and difficult, and is a hugely anti-climactic moment after hours of thumb crunching gameplay. Fighting the Fantastic Four over and over and over is a really LAME way to end a game. Expand

    Do not buy this game!!!!!!!i thought it would be ggod since it got such good reviews and Game informer gave it best comic book game ever, but it just sucked.you just go to one room, then press the same button over and over until everyones dead. Like ryan w. said every charector is either ranged or melee, and every member of each group plays the same. the graphics and camera sucks.

  1. It's a well-made game that you can try again and again with numerous heroes and their plethora of powers. If you're a comic-book fan, this is probably the most satisfying videogame ever made for you.
  2. The critical path is incredibly long and is joined by bonus comic missions for most of the characters. The teammate AI is very impressive, often getting to baddies before you even see them, but once again, Raven has designed a game that is better through cooperative play.

    Despite a few welcome wrinkles to combat and character customization, this is pretty much the same game we have seen before. The level design and puzzles are a snooze, lacking any innovation. But who cares? This game is about gathering a few friends and laying the smack down on some villains.
