  1. A fun game that ends much too quickly.
  2. 75
    Mindless fun for folks who know and enjoy the X-Men license.
  3. For those who want a bit of depth to their fighting, it may be too limited.
  4. Pocket Games
    The gameplay is repetitive, but with a save game feature there's no reason to complain. [Winter 2001, p.54]
  5. Compared to "Spiderman," another Activision release, this game pales like Storm’s hair. It’s a good game, but an even better rental.
  6. It doesn’t offer much in terms of long lasting appeal or replayability.
  7. Nintendo Power
    The techno-industrial music and Final-Fight style action are aggressive but repetitive at times. [Nov 2001, p.148]
  8. It's the type of game you can essentially play with your eyes closed if you push the buttons fast enough, and most players will breeze through it in an hour or two with little resistance.
  9. 40
    The gameplay mantra of advance, stop, button mash, advance, stop, button mash (think "Final Fight" minus the fun) gets crushingly repetitive.
  10. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    The in-game dialogue has all the creativity and wit of a Fred Basset cartoon. [Nov 2001, p.222]

    Good game all around, with a cool theme.
