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.
Summary: Another comic book title semi-wasted. This game has alot going for it. Unfortunately it was very poorly executed. The game has the movies music, feel, and atomosphere down pat. But that is about it. It really lacks anything innovative in a action adventure brawler. I have to say that Wolverine is the worst character to play in this game. His hack & slash levels are so ordinary. Ice Man & NightCrawler seem to have the most entertaining rounds.
Summary: This game is fun but a little hard. That's why I gave it 4 stars. Some parts you play as wolverine are very hard because so many guards attack you. The other reason I gave it 4, was because the movie parts are like a comic, not a movie. But overall I think its fun and cool. Playing as Nightcrawler is super fun because you can teleport behind guards and beat the living crap out of 'em. Plus, when you finish each level, you can upgrade your character's skill!
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: A lot of people give this game a bad review because they're strictly gamers, not necessarily comic book fans, and they have a natural bias against games based on movies. I myself am not an avid gamer. This review is written from a hardcore comic book fan's point of view. I personally really enjoyed this game. Yes, it can be slightly redundant. Yes, it can be slightly annoying at times since there aren't as many checkpoints as there could be.
