Wow this didn't even come close to what I was expecting

Summary: Uh this game is terrible. Camera views suck, the graphics are terrible, every once in a while the characters quit walking and start leaping forward like I'm pressing the jump button. it keeps freezing up and screeching to the point of having to actually unplug the Wii in order to get it off the screen. I'm glad I didn't pay more than $4 for this.
Summary: Like anyone I was excited for the new X-Men video game release after the first two successful Legend games. So I preodered this game and waited. The game came and well it was not very good. Actually it was garbage!! The dialouge is just horrific and pointless as well as the story. After the first mission/level I totally forgot what the point of the game was and what was going on.
Summary: [Note: this review is for the Wii version.] Does Marvel have no say in products that bear its corporate imprints? Could they have pulled this piece of unimaginitive, derivative garbage if one of their reps had a chance to play a close-to-finish build of this game? No licensed game should be this bad or banal! With astoundingly horrible graphics and a trite first-person narrative approach this game must be the worst X-men game of all time.
Summary: I rented this (thank GOD) and after 2 hours, sent it back. It is THAT bad. The camera angles are shaky at best, the controls are not customizable (the jump and attack buttons are reversed from most games), and the worst part is you don't even play as an X-Man. You choose one of three "new" mutants (read: non-canon) who all have the same power set, and interact with the traditional characters. The graphics are laughable, especially the cut scenes.
Summary: This game is a huge disappointment. I wouldn't even bother renting this game, i feel so stupid for paying full price. It sounded like you get to create your own mutant then side with either the brotherhood or the x-men. The reality is you choose between three lame characters and then choose one of three lame powers. The role playing aspect of it is also very bad. You unlock very disappointing additions to your power. There is one attack button...a punch..
Short & Simplistic Storyline Sadly seems Superficially Satisfying...

Summary: The caveat to this review is that my status as a long-time X-men aficionado suggests my expectations may be higher than the average gamer. However, my sincere desire to love this game provides counterbalance to any otherwise lofty expectations I might have held. In short, don't buy this game. The concept of constructing a game predicated on choice suggests there would be different consequences for those choices during the game. Not so.
