Excerpt: When it comes to videogames found on consoles and portables, often the portable version seems to lack some of the material found in the console version. However, X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse is an exception, and features many things not found in the console version.
Excerpt: Back in 2004, Raven Software made X-Men Legends and succeeded where so many have failed: they released a good licensed superhero game. Licensed games tend to be duds and superhero games tend to be at least as bad.
Excerpt: When I first heard about X-Men Legends, I was very excited. This was the first X-Men game that actually allowed players to use the various Mutant powers at any time. It seemed too good to be true. When the title was released, it stayed in my GameCube for months and months.
Excerpt: X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse starts off by showing players what looks to be leading up to a classic fight between Magneto’s Brotherhood and the X-Men. The two groups then have a conversation about their newfound, uneasy alliance and move on.
Summary: With a lengthy story, plenty of playable characters, tons of extras, and online play, X-Men Legends 2 is one great adventure game. If you've put off getting the game so far then this PSP port is the version for you! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
