  1. 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.
  2. It’s a game with a set purpose – give you lots of battles and lots of baddies to take down. But it doesn’t strike out into any brave new territory or define it’s own genre – sadly, not living up to the legacy of its source material.
  3. The gameplay is definitely not worth the $59.99 price tag of a next generation title.
  4. There’s nothing here that warrants a buy. Fans that want to know why Nightcrawler wasn’t in the movie will want to check out the game from your local video rental store.
  5. X-Men: The Official Game isn’t all bad, and I’ve probably made it sound a lot worse than it actually is, it’s just that if you’re looking for a yardstick for middle-of-the-road gameplay and average execution, you’ve found it.

    Like many games of this style, there is some vague, half-guilty pleasure in the mechanical repetitiveness of the game's combat. But ultimately, X-Men is in the time-honored tradition of licensed games -- rushed, derivative, and well worth avoiding.
  7. Almost everything about this movie cash-in is cheap and incompetent, from the short, forgettable levels to the poor control system to the hand-crampingly repetitive action.

    Where should I begin with X-Men: The Official Game? Should I start off by telling you about the terrible story line this game tries to tell?Where should I begin with X-Men: The Official Game? Should I start off by telling you about the terrible story line this game tries to tell? How about the graphics that are extremely outdated even for 2006? This game is a joke to anyone who is a fan of the X-Men series. The only reason I have given it a four is because the controls were responsive, at least. Much of the rest of the game is unable to live up to the expectations of even a nine year old. The story is butchered and is hardly able to be pieced together, the graphics are blurry and have no texture or substance, scenes during the game look cheesy and laughable at best. Every fighting scene in the game is repetitive and boring. Even people who love the X-Men series should steer clear of this game. Keep the dignity you deserve and please do not purchase or rent this title. Expand

    One of the worst games I have ever played. I am just grateful that I rented it instead of buying.
