Summary: this game has good graphics, good fighting moves, but is not worth the cost, your time, or the time it took to make. after a while, the missions and boss fights are too hard, and there is no invincibility cheat, so you just can't pass it, which means if you see this game for sale online or at a store, pass it up, and if you don't like it, return it, or if you can't, sell it, or destroy it if you want to.
For hardcore X-Men fans ONLY. Watch X-Men beat up your spare time.

Summary: Pros: There are X-Men in this game, Wolverine Iceman and Nightcrawler. Iceman's levels are pretty good (hence the 2 stars). The voices of the actors in the movie are used (which may have cost so much is explains the cons). Cons: Only 1 decent cutscene in the whole game, and all curscenes are drawn, like moving comic pages, like putting a comic in front of your face and impersonating an X-men character.
Summary: It's so much fun to play as Nightcrawler that that's all I wanted to do. It ended up that I was only playing the other missions to get to the next nightcrawler mission. His teleporting, wall-walking, and other acrobatics are just cool. He should get his own game. It's sort of a combination of the old Prince of Persia and Spiderman. Teleporting really cuts down on all that boring _walking_ you normally do.
X3 game not fully realized but still worth a play.

Summary: I am a huge X-Men fan and I have to first say that I bought this game on the day it came out and had beaten it with most extras unlocked by the third day I owned it. If some of you recall Activision has had a history of X-Men movie spinoff games first starting with the PSX's platform X-Men: Mutant Academy which eventually "evolved" into the incredibly good X-Men: Next Dimension and then again with the great but lacking X2: Wolverine's Revenge game when the second movie...
Summary: You can actually buy a used copy of this game for really cheap right now if you know where to look, so I was tempted to check it out and I rented it (as a FREE rental). I spent no money on this game, but it is so bad that I regret that I actually wasted the 10 or 15 minutes that I spent putting the disc in my console and "playing" this drek for as long as I could stand. This game has gotten a lot of bad reviews, and it earned 'em.
