I'm really sorry, this game is horrendously underwhelming
2 September 2014 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

I'm going back to when I was a kid and I saw Iron Man, I got into comic books that way but I generally got most of the information I needed on a game called Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, what I think - aside from Batman Arkham City is the definitive superhero beat-em-up. I dug this series out and I repaired the discs because I found them and played them. This game, is probably the complete antithesis of what an X-Men game should be in terms of gameplay.

The question you'll probably get on everyone's mind - "Do you play as the characters we know and love?"... For the first mission you play as Wolverine but that's it or at least as far as I played - There is barely any way to select the character you want and the crown jewel - NO CO-OPERATIVE PLAY! I mean this was Marvel's most popular superhero team at the time and probably has the largest roster of characters in any super-hero team (or at least there are a lot of characters to learn about in terms of mutants) I think doing co-op missions with friends is a given.

The Danger room segments are the closest to what I wanted from this game. You can pick from Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm and Wolverine...In the first mission - that's it. Enough about me going on about the HUGE disappointment of the 4 character roster you start out with and that's when you can actually select characters - Do you want to know what the story is? You play as a teenager who has just discovered her mutant power of being a walking fire hazard and you go around fighting The Brotherhood and leveling up and while that might sound cool "Oh an X-Men RPG" You barely choose anything about this character - she's just a blank slate for anyone to just jump into playing as. And for an X-Men RPG I think a much better customization system such as appearance, gender, character type and powers (I know it's nigh on impossible to program new powers for just specific characters but why not have them select their favourite powers from each character) because it's basically "You have fire powers - upgrade it".

The voice acting is crap across the board. Well, I tell a lie in some respects - this is the thing that got Steve Blum typecast as Wolverine (although - am I the only one who missed Cathal J Dodd's voice work as Logan?) but even then I shouldn't get that mad at the actors (although the person playing the teenager you play as is the stuff of legendarily bad voice acting) because the dialogue is horrible. It's not even the kind of dialogue that you can just laugh at like you can with the 60's Batman show because that show was easy to make fun of - this isn't, it's just the stuff that makes you groan.

Okay, now onto what I like about this game. The combat mechanics are really good. It's basically the same controls as Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (although if we're to choose - pick that game up) but the idea of health and power boosts to be done manually - while I question why someone WOULDN'T want their health regenerated automatically when they're about to die It's great saving this up for when it's needed most - like say in Boss battles.

I can safely say that while there are MANY who'll disagree with me - the idea of an X-Men RPG could mean the next Mass Effect 2 with complete character customization (to be fair though - I don't think the tech of 2005 could have programmed all these variants) and deciding what skills/powers they should have but with games like this and X-Men Destiny (by the way - although it's ridiculously short - much better game!) I am massively underwhelmed. Maybe Marvel should push this idea forward with the game I have in mind. So, I'd say skip this and go onto the sequel.
