X-Men: Destiny (Xbox 360)

 

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...

X-Men Destiny isn't a bad game. That's always a fun way to start a review. Thing is, X-Men Destiny isn't a game that feels necessary, not does it do a lot of things right. In that respect, it isn't a good game. X-Men Destiny feels as if it were created...

Interesting story ; New character discovering powers allows for certain creative freedom

Lack of character creation ; Choices feel artificial and superfluous ; Rote gameplay ; After the wonder Marvel hero co-op RPGs we get this single player only thing ; If it didn't have the Marvel license, nobody would buy this, and for good reason

If it were not for the other Marvel characters that show up throughout the game, X-Men Destiny would be slammed for being shallow. As it is, the game only has its license to prop it up, and sadly it doesn’t really feel like it is used nearly as...

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...

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....

Superhero games have had a rough history on pretty much every format, and none more so than the X-Men. Always one of the comic world's big hitters, they have never quite managed to translate their paper-based and silver screen success into the gaming...

About as middle of the road as it’s possible to get without being some kind of pedestrian crossing. X-Men Destiny does everything in as average a fashion as possible and then some. Even hardcore X-Men fans will feel let down by the story and action...

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...

Depending on the power progressions you have chosen different offensive and defensive abilities will be unlocked. These can range from extensions of your powers to increased health and mutant energy. There is a surprising amount of customization to be...

Homo Inferior

It?s over fairly quickly

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

X-Men: Destiny Review

 

Silicon Knights tries its hand at the X-Men franchise. Is their latest attempt worth your time?

While the game was billed as an “action-RPG”, calling it that would be a gross overstatement. Sure, it satisfies a few terms of similarity, but even with an upgrade system thrown in and some hidden collectibles, this is very much a straightforward...

X-Men Destiny Review

 

There's a whole lot of uproar going on with X-Men Destiny. Some fans are disappointed by the limitation of the game's storyline, focusing on three new characters instead of the likes of Wolverine and Cyclops, which they know so well from the Legends...

Alas, we get neither, stuck on our own as we play with X-Genes, abilities and choices. Silicon Knights would’ve been wise to add that on. Yeah, X-Men Destiny doesn’t quite live up to what it could’ve been, especially with the lack of truly diverse...
