Excerpt: I’ll admit that I’m a bit of a comic book geek. Although I’ve long since left comics like the X-men behind in search of darker themed stories like Preacher, Hellblazer and The Sandman, my first comic book teeth were cut on Marvel Super-Heroes.
Pros: + Good Sound and definitely a decent game.
Cons: - Lack of choice in the beginning and some repetitive gameplay.

Excerpt: Perhaps one of the strongest facets that sets Legends apart from previous titles is its extremely solid storyline. Composed by Man of Action, a four man team of former and current X-Men staff writers, the plot of Legends could’ve been ripped directly from Marvel’s pages.
Conclusion: When it comes to X-Men games one of the key factors that many gamers look at is the graphics. Many wonder what type of style the developers will use to bring these comic book characters to life. So how did they do with X-Men Legends?
