Summary: Okay so thankfuly i just rented this game it plays like a PSone and not much of story in it. You can't even make your own mutant just give him/her powers at least let me create may costume in the next one please. If you are into old school 8-lev. gameplay ie. Super Mario or Streets of Rage (witch was better) then go for this. I will wait for a real RPG stlye X-men game.
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: First off, this game isn't completely bad. There are okay qualities that keep it from being the absolute worst game of all time. However, the reason why I would never recommend this game is because it really was nothing more than a disappointment. It hyped itself up to be this "Be your own X-man" game...but it really boiled down to just "be one of these three mutants..
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: I was exited for a real X-Men action PRG that was promised initially. Game fell flat in the end. Short, boring mundane combat system, just as bad as some movie video games. Pass even if you are a fan.
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.
