X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse
watch out apocaylpse
I was impressed by this game. You can play as fan favorites like wolverine, magneto, and juggernaut. Also the stages take place all over the world. You start out the first level in Greenland, and after that you go from anywhere to New York City to Egypt. I thought the voices for the characters were great, even if the dialogue was sometimes a bit cheesy. Armin Shimmerman (star trek ds9) does a great voice for toad,and he does a solid zealot also. The graphics on this game are MUCH better than the first x-men legends. The graphics in x-men legends 2 don't look flat and cartoony like the first,instead the graphics have a slight 3D look to them and the textures are much better. This game has a much better interface than the first legends. Now you can choose from twice as many skills from each character. Every character is balanced better and they stay true to their comic book origins. Every character doesn't have critical strike any more (why storm would need critical strike is beyond me) like in the first x-men legends. This is a lengthy game,and it will take you 18 to 23 hours the first time around. Oh yeah, and this game is online compatible with xbox live. You can have up to three other players join you in the campaign mode to help you kick apocalypse's butt. There are also other online modes of play also that you can choose from. I would recommend this game to any one who has even the slightest interest in x-men. Even if you are not a fan this is quality game that is presented well.
