    I found the game too dark to really enjoy and the patience required just didn't grab my attention enough to really feel strongly about this title.

    Offers a fantastic alternative to the traditional RTS formulae we have all trotted through a hundred times already. It delivers an extremely slick and complete package that should appeal to non-RTS fans as well as "C&C" veterans.

    Good graphics, fun in-game play, good mini-games, not a whole lot of depth with season mode.

    Great storyline, great originality, great sound.

    Overall, X-Men: The Official Game offers up some great backstory and art direction as a title, along with a great roster of voice actors which are the same big names as in the franchise of movies.

    The game is geared for realism and suspense - so ADD kids won't enjoy it while intelligent gamers looking for a level of realism will be heartedly entertained.

    A solid title whose best features include the humor, story, and amount of modes the game offers.

    If you are a soccer fan that is looking for a fast paced game that is accessible for many and great for playing on the go, WTS06 is the game you are looking for.

    Its story and character development options kept me more involved than Champions’ linear quests, weak story, and more limited skill system. Still, it’s impossible to overlook DA2’s lack of online play or multitap options.

    It's a lot of fun to play, is fairly inexpensive, and you'll get a ton of hours of great gameplay out of it, not just for you but for the entire family.

    I was fascinated by the aforementioned RPG elements though and would like to have seen a more dynamic struggle, somewhere in-between the grandeur of "Total War" and the intimacy of "X-Com," where you could take your band of survivors to different areas of conflict with whatever equipment you can lay your hands on.

    Good graphics trying to make up for less than par gameplay.

    An absolute thrill to play with all the elements of both a top notch action and RPG title.

    But if you don't see the awesome graphics and sound, you will definitely be a sorrier person for it whether you know it or not.

    The voice acting is very solid, and the too-few story based missions make the game completely worthwhile.

    As a standalone game, it has enough features to reward serious players, but with several features that make it the ideal MMO for the player who only has a couple of hours a week to devote to it.

    If you can get over the uninspiring graphics, you can definitely enjoy some really fun gameplay and a nice new type of game for the Marvel comic universe.

    Notwithstanding that we had to penalize the game for the disappointing graphics, the development team did an excellent job on creating a game that you can literally play for the next 2 years and never play the same character twice!

    The unlockables are likely only going to appeal to hardcore KoF fans, but the huge number of fighters and team combinations can keep players in search of D-pad kung fu mastery playing for a long time.

    The graphics are commendable, but not amazing, the sound is arguably the game’s best quality, and overall, comes as a game that is best suited for fans of games of this nature only.
