Really fun but the leveling up is a pain
2 September 2014 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Well, I must be the only X-Men fan to hate on the first X-Men Legends game but this... is a whole lot better. No, really - the voice acting is so much better this time round, there is a way to play co-op FROM THE START! and the Danger Room is easily by far and away the very best thing about this game.

Apocalypse is about to wreck havoc which leads The Brotherhood and The X-Men on an alliance to stop Apocalypse as well as do the tasks at hand such as rescuing mutants and other such tasks.

Okay, the biggest problem I have with this game is the power you will know the characters for, you have to work to get. Nightcrawler can't teleport unless you level him up enough times, Rogue can't fly (actually, no-one can at the beginning) nor steal powers (in a beat-em-up, when you get it it's really fun to exploit) and do you think The Juggernaut can run so fast everything he touches gets knocked down? Well - work your way up to Level 24 to get that power.

The Danger Room, is probably so good - I want it to be a separate fighting game, all the character's powers are completely maxed out in this mode and beating up other members of the X-Men is actually much more fun then beating the enemies in the game. Doing stuff like using Rogue's power to steal Nightcrawler's teleportation to evade for a minute, then using it to get The Juggernaut's power of knocking down things in momentum is one of the things you can do hypothetically. Oh and speaking of - the combat is pretty much the same as in the original so no comment.

At the end of the day - this can be a really fun game - I mean hell, it's no masterpiece but with what you have as the game goes on - is actually very much worth getting to. I mean I know a lot of people prefer the original and while I only played the first couple of levels to both these games - this one is better of pulling you in. If you like the idea of making your team of 4 X-Men or making X-Men beat each other up then this is for you.
