X-Men Legends (GC)

  • Excerpt: In many respects, the X-Men seem to have a golden touch in the realm of entertainment. The 1990?s cartoon series was one of the most epic, sweeping, and mature products ever to grace Saturday morning television, appealing as much to adults as it did to children. The X-Men movies of the last five years have been equally good, with X-2: X-Men United arguably one of the best superhero films ever made.

  • Excerpt: X-Men Legends' plot revolves around the X-Men's most oft fought enemy, Magneto and the Brotherhood of Mutants. The Brotherhood is up to no good and throughout the game, the X-Men fight the Brotherhood all the while trying to figure out what they are up to. But the overall plot is almost like an excuse for the rest of the game and not in a bad way. Rather than focusing on the plot to save the world, the game's story is told through the perspective of a girl named Alison.

  • Conclusion: game companies want in on this cash cow. We’ve seen some fantastic outings such as the Capcom fighting games showcasing these superheroes, to other not so endearing entries like X2 Wolverine’s Revenge. Now Ravensoft is taking a slightly different approach to making an X-Men game, choosing to create an action RPG. Players will need to recruit a squad of mutants to take on Magneto who has figured out a way for the mutants of the world to rule over regular humans.

Nintendo World Report
22 October 2004
  • Summary: A beat-em-up-style RPG worthy of the X-Men name. Don’t let this one get lost in the holiday shuffle.
  • Pros: Absorbing story assisted by respectable voice work, Leveling system with substantial results, Versatile control scheme
  • Cons: Blurry textures and simple models don’t cut it in close-ups., Frustrating interactions near walls, Music is forgettable and fails to draw players in.
