    X-Men: The Official Game, where to begin??? Developed by Z-Axis (who did all of Acclaims extreme sports titles like BMX XXX, and Aggresive Inline) got the reins to make this title. Well personally, i didnt think it was bad but it wasnt great either. You get to control 3 X-Men Wolverine, Iceman, and Nightcrawler. Whats cool is that all 3 play tremendously different from one another. RightX-Men: The Official Game, where to begin??? Developed by Z-Axis (who did all of Acclaims extreme sports titles like BMX XXX, and Aggresive Inline) got the reins to make this title. Well personally, i didnt think it was bad but it wasnt great either. You get to control 3 X-Men Wolverine, Iceman, and Nightcrawler. Whats cool is that all 3 play tremendously different from one another. Right off the bat my least favorite character to play with was Wolverine and it doesnt make it any better that he is the the one you play with the most. Now i can understand that since your Wolverine your missions would consist of destroying and brawling, but would it be too much trouble if maybe Wolvie had more than 3-4 combos? The guy has barely any moves whatsoever. What the hells up with that?! Yeah definately my least favorite. Moving on to Iceman, i actually enjoyed Icemans levels, his levels remind me of Panzer Dragoon in which you stay airborn (courtesy of your forever forming ice slide), shooting down enemies and the like. What i didnt like about his levels is that there freakin' timed! God i hate timed levels...but otherwise there pretty fun. Which brings us to Nightcrawler. Loved playin with 'crawler. His levels are very fun cause you can "bamf" pretty much anywhere you like and kick the hell out of bad guys. Pros- Graphics are very good, contol is tight, voice overs are done by the actual actors, Iceman levels, Nightcrawler levels. Cons-Wolverine has barely any moves, Wolverine levels, anytime you play with Wolverine, game consist mostly of Wolvierine. Overall, decent first try for Z-Axis. Decent time killer...just prepare yourself for those Wolverine levels... Expand

    An enjoyable romp of a video game. Graphics are very well done. The camera angles tend to get a tad wonky at times, and the combat can seem a tad repetitive, but if you want a mindless beat them up movie based action game, give this a try. Teleporting behind an enemy and drop kicking him in the head is a load of fun!

    Decent, particularly for X-Men fanatics. All of the criticisms are well deserved, but I definitely found the game to be a fairly enjoyable (though mindless) way to kill time.

    Thanks to some horribly generic gameplay and uninspired combat, it ends up continuing the disappointing trend of movie license video games.
  2. 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.
  3. The game explains a lot about what fans may not see in the upcoming movie, and while this is a departure from the previous squad-based titles, it is still a wonderful and enjoyable bit of fun.
