Nowhere near the level of X-Men Legends or Marvel Alliance

Summary: I bought this with in the back of my mind, something to occupy my time until the next Marvel game. This game is so repetitive that after about an hour of playing you will just get bored and turn it off. The story isn't that compelling, the create your own mutant powers is wasted on the after 3 hours of playing this game I saw nothing that impressed me or made me want to continue playing it.
Summary: Think old x-men game with better graphics and you sum up this one. Save your money until marvel puts out a better product. I give it two stars because I did mildly enjoy the shadow power bit they have to expand the storyline. I played the game through 3 times and the decisions you make dont alter your mission enough to be considered choices at all.
Summary: Ok, I have to start by saying I'm a huge X-men fan. I read the comic books and even woke up early on saturday to watch the cartoon in the 90's. If you combine that with the my taste for action and action/rpg video games, I was stoked for x-men destiny. Now like most games, I wait for the reviews (IGN, or on x-play) before I throw 60 bucks at a new game. And yeah, they weren't good. None the less, I was still determined to at least try it out.
Summary: THe only reason I give this game 2 stars instead of 1 is because it can be kind of fun. However, I just beat a 60 dollar game in less. than. a. day! Linear quests, short and decidedly non-epic story, repetitive bosses and enemies (don't design new ones, just throw larger numbers of them at you. Yeah, that's fun). Definitely not an open world. Other SPB games (Prototype, Infamous) could at least manage that much. Why can't Marvel get it together?
Summary: Compare this to Ultimate Alliance I & II and X-Men Origins Wolverine and you're looking at an inferior game. The idea that you're NOT one of the X-Men is still sort of strange because it's less interesting but not taking that into consideration it's still a game that consists of too much talking from the characters you meet and battles that are similar if not unchallenging.
Summary: I got the game from redbox since i heard it was easy and short. I played the game on the hardest setting and it only took about 7-8 hours. Stupid easy game but the only parts i found to be hard were the boss fights and random hero fights against certain mutants. You get to choose between 3 different characters to play the campain. Big football player that moves slow, thin guy that is a bit quicker and small female.
