Moral choice aspect is overshadowed by lots of brawling.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that X-Men: Destiny is basically a fighting game in which you play a young superpowered mutant who can choose to either join up with the heroic X-Men or the villainous Brotherhood of Mutants in a fight against anti-mutant forces. Choosing to be a good guy or bad guy can alter your experience a bit, but there aren't really any hard lessons learned by choosing the less noble path.

GameSpot

  • Summary: In X-Men: Destiny, mindless combat and meaningless choices combine to create a new mutation of boredom.
  • Pros: A variety of powerful attacks to use
  • Cons: Ally and enemy AI behavior is idiotic, Shallow, tedious combat, Choices have almost no impact on the course of the game, Ugly visuals

X-Men: Destiny (Wii)

  • Conclusion: The concept of Destiny really is original, and should have made for a great game, but instead we are left with a final product that feels unfinished and rushed to completion with many sacrifices made along the way. You might expect this from a budget title, but not a $50 licensed game from a well known developer. All in all, X-Men Destiny left me asking myself Y-Man, why did you release the game in this state.
  • Cons: Horrible cell animation in the introduction sequence is strangely reminiscent of watching Space Ghost, Very linear gameplay for a game was largely designed to incorporate decision making as an essential element, Graphics are very blocky with inconsistent frame rates, Poor camera control sees your character obstructed or worst yet stuck half inside of solid objects, Low re-playability

  • Summary: An impressive storyline and some interesting choice-driven gameplay make Destiny a compelling experience at times, and the occasional diverging pathways and ability to choose your mutant power at the beginning add replay value and help make one playthrough unique from the next. However, it's still largely linear, and the gameplay mostly amounts to simplistic, repetitive beat-em-up combat, boring level design and platforming marred by a somewhat cumbersome jumping...

X-Men Destiny (Wii) Review

27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Today we take a look at X-Men Destiny for the Wii. Released at the end of September on all of the consoles, the X-Men franchise is loved by fans and has terrific potential in the realm of video games. Destiny however fails to deliver on the potential the X-Men franchise has. What is a reasonably good idea is tripped up by poor execution. Read on for the not so great news for X-Men fans that only have a Wii. X-Men Destiny starts off following the death of Professor X.

  • Summary: Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America und auch die X-Men verbindet eine Gemeinsamkeit – sie stammen wie viele andere bekannte Helden aus dem Comic-Universum von Marvel. Zwar haben die verschiedenen Serien oftmals bereits mehrere Jahrzehnte auf dem Buckel, doch durch Verfilmungen und neue Videospiele sind sie so bekannt wie eh und je. Mit „X-Men: Destiny“ wurde nun eine der erfolgreichsten amerikanischen Comic-Serien auf Wii geholt.

  • Excerpt: Nachdem ich bereits die grottige DS-Version von X-Men: Destiny testen durfte, gab es die Wii-Fassung gleich noch obendrauf. Mensch, Glück muss man haben! Aber ob mich diese Version mehr überzeugen konnte und vielleicht sogar annähernd gut wurde? Da habe ich einen Satz mit X: Das war wohl nix.

  • Conclusion: X-Men Destiny ist genau einer dieser Titel, die außer Namedropping nichts zu bieten haben. Langweiliges Spiel- und Leveldesign wurde durch aufgesetzt wirkende Rollenspielelemente ergänzt und man ist einfach nur froh, wenn man das Spiel hinter sich gebracht hat, denn so etwas wie Spielspaß stellt sich in keiner Sekunde ein.

  • Conclusion: Curto e com falhas naquele que deveria ser o seu ponto forte - a liberdade de escolha - “X-Men: Destiny” é um jogo feito para ficar nas prateleiras das lojas e não sair delas. Caso queira arriscar vá por sua conta e risco, mas saiba que a jornada não vai durar mais que quatro horas e você verá praticamente as mesmas coisas caso escolha outro personagem.
  • Pros: Pontos Positivos, Controles
  • Cons: Pontos Negativos, Suas escolhas não fazem diferença, Câmera ruim, Jogo curto
