Conclusion: At it’s core, X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse on PSP is the same game as its console counterparts, but the portability of the title and the exclusive extras makes this one feel a little more at home on the handheld. Besides, there aren’t that many games of this nature on PSP as yet, so you might as well delve!
Pros: Series feels at home on PSP, Visuals and controls hold up nicely, Exclusive content just for the PSP
Cons: Load times and menu hiccups, No manual camera shift
Summary: Without a doubt this is the best comic book video game adaption of all time and the port to PSP has been handled very well indeed. In fact with multiplayer it's probably even better on the handheld system. An essential purchase for X-Men and/or comic book fans.
