X-Men: Destiny (PlayStation 3)

 

What good are mutant superpowers without exciting reasons to use them? As X-Men: Destiny proves, they're no good at all. In this superhero beat-'em-up, clobbering swarms of stupid bad guys with your newfound abilities is tedious, and although a...

Many of us who grew up with comic books used to love making up our own super heroes. We’d hash out the requisite origin stories, debate which powers suited our characters and consider the appropriate length of our capes. Every bit of the process was...

Honestly, I could go on and on about the myriad of reasons why X-Men: Destiny is a bad game, but it isn’t the inconsistent frame rate, poor writing or almost PlayStation 2-like visuals that make it such a dud. Silicon Knights set out to make an X-Men...

You start the game (such as it is) at one of those ever-popular rallies to promote peace between mutants and humans (you know, the ones Marvel has every other week, that always get interrupted by some sort of mutant “terrorist” attack, or anti-mutie...

None. Not a one. Null. Nada. Nil. Zilch. Zero. Zed. Zip

The game is boring ; You’re not an X-Man. You’re not part of the Brotherhood. You’re not even a real mutant from Marvel continuity. On top of all this, there’s no option to create your own character or pick your own powers (beyond the rather limited...

This game sucks. X-Men Destiny is one of those projects that sounds good on paper but just totally falls apart when it gets to the practical execution phase. We’re given a barebones “story” that barely makes it past the deep and intricate storylines of...

It may not come as a surprise that as a games writer I love the X-Men. The rough and tumble group of super-powered mutants are amongst the most compelling of the marvel world. From the animated shows to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, the serial has gained...

When a game touts the importance of player choice on the outcome of some sort of epic storyline, I tend to expect deep, rich narrative that actually depends on the decisions I make throughout. Truth be told, when firing up a new game such as X-Men:...

Thankfully short lived, X:Men: Destiny fails to capture the fun and excitement of the Marvel Universe.

X-Men: Destiny

 

Environments are drab and unentertaining, and it seems that the game is intent on slowing down the action after every single fight. Though the voice acting is well done; characters look and move awkward and it's hard to get immersed into the game's world.

As of this writing, there aren't many cheats for X-Men: Destiny save for a few codes that will unlock supposed pre-order only costumes. While those are great for those playing for the game's fan service, they're not exactly what we're looking for....

Ultimately, all of these arguments can be boiled down to one larger complaint with the game: For all of the trumpeting of making your own choices, X-Men: Destiny doesn't allow for deep customization, giving you shallow options that don't affect the...

X-Men: Destiny Review

 

The X-Men have enjoyed quite the run of success over the past decade or so. Multiple blockbuster movies and even a few well-done, entertaining games have put the mutants in the public's good graces. But X-Men: Destiny is a big step backwards and even...

The Ugly: “I can’t believe I had to put 4.5 gigs worth of this crap on my hard drive. …coming off now.”

With virtually no publicity and very little info X-Men: Destiny soars onto retail shelves without many people noticing. Activision has had a successful run with Professor X's mutants over the past two...

Great fan service ; Three powers to choose from ; Action is well done

Fairly short ; Dialog choices are useless ; Lacking in presentation

With virtually no publicity and very little info X-Men: Destiny soars onto retail shelves without many people noticing. Activision has had a successful run with Professor X’s mutants over the past two generations, and a lot of people were expecting yet...

Homo Inferior

It's over fairly quickly

Imprecise Choices are meaningless, combat remains largely the same throughout the game, silly story
