X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse review (PS2)
10 October 2013
Excerpt: Through the annals of time, the X-Men have had their issues as far as how they've been portrayed in the world of video games. Like, when I'm controlling Wolverine, I have one goal in mind: to put myself in the role of a somewhat psychotic powerhouse who dives into hordes of enemies to tear them...
Excerpt: Allow me to start off with the following statement: if you’re looking for originality, look elsewhere! For gameplay reference I gladly point you to b|0-0|n’s review of the original game for Xbox he wrote last year, as not much has changed in that department.
Excerpt: Rather than going down the usual action or one-on-one fighting game route that your typical superhero game travels. Being an RPG, X-Men Legends was truly unique. It cheekily borrowed heavily from the likes of Baldur’s Gate and had just enough action and RPG elements to appease the fans of both...
Excerpt: On the successful heels of the first X-Men action RPG , Raven Software has returned with a follow-up that easily addresses any complaints offered on the first game. With a different cast (not completely different) of mutants to use, players will find themselves running through the game to get to the...
Pros: Large levels with lots to find, Environments look great and can be destroyed, Large cast, Co-op and online gameplay
Cons: Character models could be more detailed, Lots of loading
Excerpt: In the sequel to last year’s hit, X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse allows players to not only take on the role of the X-Men, but also Magneto and other members of the Brotherhood, as the teams battle against the forces of Apocalypse.
Excerpt: The world of the X-men is such a great universe for an RPG to take place in. For starters, it's believable; Second, there are so many unique characters to choose from and you never know who you'll run into next. This is why I enjoyed the original X-Men Legends so much.
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 .
Excerpt: I'm certainly not as hardcore a fan as some here, but when I first heard that an X-Men game was being made, I was certainly excited (no puns here, fanboys). I grew up watching the cartoon and reading the comics, and even though I haven't read a Marvel comic in years, I still consider myself a fan of...
Pros: + Play as both Brotherhood and X-Men Mutants, Beautifully Rendered FMVs
Cons: - Repetitive Game Play, Character Cel-Shading Needs Improvement
