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. The PSP version of the game has more everything: equipment, characters, missions, and load times!
Excerpt: X-Men Legends II sees sworn enemies, the X-Men and the Brotherhood, teaming together to defeat Apocalypse, a threat so great that it will take the combined forces of the two groups to defeat. This unusual pairing allows you to choose from a roster of twenty playable characters (Magneto, Wolverine, Storm, Mystique, Sabertooth, Cyclops, and many more), mixing and matching good and evil characters to put together the strongest group of four mutants possible.
Excerpt: X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse is the sequel to last year's breakout hit, and the return of the franchise is triumphant. The PSP version of Rise of Apocalypse features all the goodness of the home console versions, including a robust online multiplayer mode that lets you team up with players from all over the world.
Pros: ups: Nice action-RPG gameplay; strong X-Men story; home console quality version in portable format; online multiplayer.
Cons: downs: A little stuttery when reading UMD; gameplay not really designed for handheld.
Conclusion: Minor gripes aside, this is yet another top PSP game that you’d do well to check out, even if the RPG element might have put you off initially. X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse is an instantly playable game with some real depth, and does both the legendary series and the genre justice.
Pros: Loads of characters, It’s bigger than the home console versions!, Wi-fi play is cool
Cons: The usual PSP loading issues, Frame rate stutters
