X-Men: Destiny (Wii)

 

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

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...

Surprising no one, this Wii version is even worse than its HD console counterparts.

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....

X-Men: Destiny Review

 

In X-Men: Destiny, awful combat and meaningless choices combine to create a new mutation of boredom.

Idiotic enemy behavior ; Shallow, tedious combat ; Choices have almost no impact on the course of the game ; Ugly visuals and poor frame rate ; Contrived mutant power mechanic

On top of it all, Destiny is an ugly game. The simple character models and muddy textures make it look like it was made several years ago. Enemies sometimes disappear into the geometry, and objects you smash vanish completely in the midst of terrible...

Review: X-Men Destiny Chooses the Power of Irrelevance

 

Another disappointing effort from Silicon Knights.

It's never acknowledged at any point in X-Men Destiny that you're one of the most powerful mutants to ever appear in the X-Men universe. You can freely swap out abilities and powers at will, setting enemies on fire one second and freezing them the...

X-Men: Destiny review

 

There was a short period of time when video games based on licensed super hero games were actually decent and some even quite good. Whether it was the Spider-Man games on PS2 and Xbox or The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, the action hero genre...

I write this review with some reservations about my criticism simply because Silicon Knights used to be a developer that was exemplary in the industry. Eternal Darkness was one of my favorite games on GameCube and their remake of the original Metal...

X-Men: Destiny (Wii) Review

 

Turmoil has erupted and the mutants find themselves in another battle for survival. In this alternative reality take on the classic X-Men franchise, Silicon Knights test their "Destiny" as future X-men storytellers.

Good concept and storyline ; Long list of mutant cameos. You would be hard pressed to miss your favourite ; X-Gene concept is an interesting concept

Horrible cell animation in the introduction sequence is strangely reminiscent of watching Space Ghost ; Very linear gameplay for a game was largely designed to incorporate decision making as an essential element ; Graphics are very blocky with...

The concept of Destiny really is original, and should have made for a great game, but instead we are left with a final product that feels unfinished and rushed to completion with many sacrifices made along the way. You might expect this from a budget...

X-Men: Destiny- Wii

 

The Wii Remote shaking meant to trigger dodging in combat doesn't register well. The lower poly-count character models' mouths don't animate, meaning you'll frequently see people "speaking" to you through tightly closed lips. It's all just awful.
