    X-Men: The Official Game is crap quite simply. It was obviosly thrown togethor in a hurry in the hopes of scoring some easy money for dedicated X-Men fans like me. Well i wouldn't pay 5$ for this game. The graphics are bland and the gameplay is as generic as it gets. With wolverine it's nothing more than hack n slash the entire way through. With nightcrawler it's more of a X-Men: The Official Game is crap quite simply. It was obviosly thrown togethor in a hurry in the hopes of scoring some easy money for dedicated X-Men fans like me.

With nightcrawler it's more of a bore the teleportation feature really isn't special and isn't much fun either. Iceman is the worst of the three, gliding around on ice and putting out fires isn't very endearing. The story is somewhat interesting but it is hard to keep playing through the mess of the game to get the juicy comic book style sequences. So X-Men fans beware! This game is barely worth a rental and you'll have to have some perserverance to get through the whole game. Good luck. Expand

    Game graphics and storyboard is acceptable. The lengh of the game is short. Overall, This game is satisfactory.

    X-Men: The Official Game takes place between the second and third movie, it's a pretty good game with pretty good controls, a good story, and some fun gameplay, ultimately an enjoyable game, the only bad parts are the Ice Man levels which are bad do to poor controls, all in all if you like the X-Men and the movies you'll enjoy this game.

  1. You could probably leech out a weekend's worth of so-so gaming, and at 30 bucks, you'll still have plenty of cash to check out the upcoming film. It's bound to be more exciting than this.

    It's sad to say, but after playing this I spent a good few hours playing "Wolverine's Revenge" and having more fun in the process - and that game is over three years old!

    Had The Official Game provided a consistent overall challenge, it would have been bearable, if unexciting. But it hasn't, and it isn't. [July 2006, p.88]
