Trivia

This game drew its influence from the various incarnations of the X-Men characters. The storyine was inspired by the original X-Men comics. The uniforms were taken from Ultimate X-Men (an alternate version of the comics created for readers who didn't want to have to deal with the thirty plus years of backstory from the original comics) and the design of the Xavier Mansion is taken from the X-Men film franchise.

Very entertaining, with a few minor flaws.
16 October 2004 | by antiotterSee all my reviews

X-Men Legends is a good solid game, with a good plot, easy controls, and very fun to play. The cel-shaded graphics might not be your thing, but the CGI cut scenes are really well done.

The game play is similar to Diablo, where you run around beating up enemies for experience points, which they lets you level up to unlock more mutant powers. The huge cast of playable characters and hidden secrets also gives it some replay value.

My main beef is that the game gets progressively easier as you go along. By the latter half of the game, your X-team is so powered up that you rarely fight enemies, they just get blasted with mutant powers by your computer controlled teammates before you can even get to them. Some of the mutant attacks are so deadly that even the toughest non-boss enemies go down quickly. The only time it gets challenging is when you are literally swarmed with enemies. However, between a rampaging horde, four X-men who them constantly shooting off mutant powers whose graphical effects take up the whole screen, you can barely tell what's going on.

While the storyline is good, too many of the enemies are generic human soldiers. It would be nice to fight more recognizable evil mutants and classic X-men villains. One of the best villains of all time is barely used at all in the game (he got the same treatment in the movie, so I can't complain too much).
