X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse Review

1 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Raven Software, responsible for titles such as Hexen and Jedi Academy, have returned with another instalment in the X-Men Legends series. Their approach is a simple and effective one based on the mantra of " If it ain't broke, don't fix it ." According to their marketing people - who I have no reason to doubt - last year's X-Men Legends became the most successful X-Men game of all time.

X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse Review

21 September 2005
  • Excerpt: A good game plays by a set of clearly defined rules; a great game gives you plenty of clever opportunities to break those rules. X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse breaks the rules by letting you create an unlikely mutant dream team of heroes and villains from a cast of characters that includes the legendary X-Men as well as Magneto’s sinister band, the Brotherhood.
  • Pros: Great cast of playable characters from the Brotherhood and the X-Men, Makes excellent use of the extensive X-Men mythology, Almost fully destructible environments, Good music and voice acting, Tons of extras to unlock
  • Cons: Sound effects are a bit weak, Awkward interface, Frequent load times
