X-Men: The Official Game (Xbox 360)

 

X-Men: The Official Game is officially a lame action-game cash-in on the upcoming movie.

X-Men: The Official Game

 

The X-Men have been around in comic books and films since the 1960s. It centres around a gang of mutants fighting against the evil humans who want to experiment on them just because they're different. As well as this, the X-Men also attempt to educate...

A very distinctly average and dull film tie-in of a game. So much could have been done with the license but instead it's dull, predictable and a waste of time and money. All hail the cash cow, not! Go play Marvel Ultimate Alliance if you want a good...

X-Men: The Official Game

 

X-Men: The Official Game sounds like a good idea on the surface. Take three of the most popular X-Men from the movies and make a game bridging parts two and three. Toss in three distinct styles of gameplay, a fully realized story, and some sweet...

X-Men: The Official Game isn't a terrible game, but it's not any good, either. It managed to dip down below mediocre and into the realm of "Why bother?" It's short, uninteresting, and probably won't keep your attention based solely on the fighting,...

X-Men: The Official Movie Game

 

Most movie tie in games aren't really done well. There have been a few that have surpassed expectations but that's a rare case. With the success of the Brett Ratner helmed X-Men: The Last Stand, a game comes along that bridges the gap between the...

It's not good when you are bored playing Wolverine. The game's short but that's a good thing here as I don't think I could take much more of the product.

SYNOPSIS: From one of the writers of the hit blockbuster movie, X-Men: The Last Stand, along with accomplish comic book writer Chris Claremont, X-Men The Official Game puts players in the backstory leading directly up to the movie. The game lets...

X-Men The Official Game Review

 

Nightcrawler is the saving grace of this formulaic beat 'em up based loosely on the latest X-Men film.

While X-Men isn't completely worthless (I have to give props to the developers for Nightcrawler in this game), it certainly could have been a better experience. As it stands, it's simply a mindless beat 'em up with a few unlockables and some formulaic...

Activision is one of the few publishers with a history of bucking the transmogrification-gone-awry trend and making cool games based on cool movies, like the superior Spider-Man- and the above-average Shrek-based games. They just neglected dodge the...

Odd coming from Activision, but X-Men III The Official Game is yet another example of good, popcorn-fluff movie fodder getting somehow botched in the movie-based-game transmogrification process despite an abundance of the quintessential fluff de...

Please be aware, the game review may contain potential spoilers to the X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men United.

Is this worth $60 on the 360? No, it's not – but it definitely is worth renting. Is it worth $20 less on the other consoles? Even then it might be better suited for a rental.

X-Men: The Official Game review for the XBOX360

 

Isn't like the film at all; Some interesting play mechanics

So repetitive it hurts; Uneven graphics; Not enough game for your buck; Especially when you spend 60 of 'em

The mission rewards suffer from a similar malady. By completing levels at higher difficulties, you can upgrade the skills of that mission's main character. This is a good idea that isn't taken far enough; there are no new combos to unlock, and many of...

X-Men: The Official Game

 

Any game based upon Marvel's X-Men, movie or not, has enough source material behind it to make for a truly compelling experience - something that cannot be said about Activsion's X-Men: The Official Game. Billed as a bridge between the second and third...
