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 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.
