It looks pretty lame, but Cyclops is in it, so I'll buy it.

Looking good as along as I can make my own character.

Looking nice, if a bit simple both graphically and concept-wise. At least it will hopefully be like having a new X-men Legends/Marvel Alliance game.

You can't. 
 
Three back stories and three power sets.

I'm going to check it out....and probably be disappointed

Posted by IllyanaRasputin

I'm excited for this game still, I've been watching some of the walkthroughs since I was on the fence about it and it seems like it's going to be a fun game to keep me distracted from my university studies (a)

I have been as well and I'm still on the fence about it. I saw 2 videos featuring Emma and Havok's "X-Genes" and they honestly just seemed like color swaps. That has me way turned off so I must know how it is from all of you, when it comes out.

This trailer actually looks more promising than the previous ones. Looks like you can pick up different costumes and slot some additional powers (pretty sure I saw Emma's diamond form on the dude with density control) I might go for it despite my earlier reservations. Just wish there were a few more character types to choose from.

Why is Magneto wearing a bra?

He's always worn a bra, it's just that now he's decided to wear it on the OUTSIDE... Like Madonna...

i'm really on the fence with this. it is going to be good, but it could have been so much better

Posted by IllyanaRasputin

@pixelized: Yeah, I watched a Walkthrough of a couple acts from the game and watching the Emma Frost and Havok promos I thought the same thing, but it actually gives the energy projection (or whichever power you choose to start off with) a bit more "umpf" haha. I saw Aimi using Gambit's power and basically it just adds on so when she comes into contact with her enemies when she's using her energy projection theres also a kinetic energy in their too and her opponents get more damaged done, and also when they touch her they get hurt because of something, all in all, it confuses the hell out of me :P I just wanna play so I can learn on my own!

It certainly looks interesting, but why is no actual gameplay footage shown?

LOL, at least its not pointy

wow those were cut scene graphics.....they look like PS2 cut scenes.....I'm probably going to end up passing on this....there really hasn't been anything announced about this game that's interested me yet and now that I've seen that the graphics are poor I've lost nearly all interest in it

Posted by papad1992

So it's 2011 and we're still getting graphics that look like they were developed in the early 2000s!!! I want some mind blowing sh!t that will make me wanna play over and over again and miss college deadlines!!!! But we can't complain because none of us have played it yet. And what's with half of u guys being on the "fence".... what kind of fence is it?? Does it hurt??

Looks cool to me.

I think you have to reach a higher level of the game for that... or join the Hell Fire club.. LOL!

This is a game that you rent, not buy.

Posted by LoganRogue24

i might pick this up today or tomorow i just wish Rogue was in it but my other fav x-woman Emma Frost is in it so it should be good.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I still can't get over how this game in terms of playing might be good...but those graphics still look terrible. I mean it just looks okay and I'm sure the game-play is fine, but sometimes the game has to be pleasing to the eyes as well as to the fingers in my opinion. Just a so-so idea to me. At most its something I'd get if I were a member of Game-stop. Just not something to purchase at this time.

Posted by Tempest55

I honestly don't mind the graphics, I can overlook that as long as I'm having fun. Usually what fun equals to me is:

1. The atmosphere (X-men universe is already a +1 in my book)

2. Gameplay (I can usually enjoy a really mediocre game)

So I'm definitely going to play this game, however depending on the reviews and scores it gets I may just cancel my pre-order of this title and wait for it to go down in price. I'm hoping its at least rough around the edges, or there are a lot of mutants in this game. Maybe it might even be a surprise wonder. I just hope these reviews come out fast enough today.

I have very little interest in this game. I would rather be able to play as my favorite charecters then play as one I had to make up or even worse, lame ones they inveted just for the game

Looks awful but Pixie and Surge are in it... I'm so torn.

Pixie <3

Probably the only reason I'm buying this game.

Posted by danhimself

so it came out today.....has anyone bought and played it? impressions?

Posted by Iron_Turtle

Looks like ass.

This game has underwhelmed me from the moment of conception.

@danhimself

I've baught it...I just played a bit of it 
It's cool but I'm not very intrested in the graphics
Posted by Tempest55

I just found out this game is available on Redbox. I canceled my pre-order and switched it to Battlefield 3 instead, and I'll rent x-men someday :P

6 Hour Campaign broke the deal for me, thats 10 dollars an hour. The straw that broke the camels back.

It's nothing special, a complete playthrough of the game (using one of the characters) is roughly 3-4 hours long and easy. You mainly just run around and pound enemies without strategy. The Number of X-Men and Brotherhood members that appear are limited...games like X-Men Legends had more. The story is nothing surprising and the dialogue is predictable. Save money and rent it

yeah I kind of figured from the trailers that it wasn't very good....oh well....maybe we'll get lucky and a good developer will get the rights and make a good X-men game in the future

wow...thats really deppressing, i was gonna pick it up at gamestop tommorow but if the campaign is THAT short then its not worth the $60...ang...i really had high hopes for this game too....

@LoganRogue24: No Rogue?! BLASPHAMY!!! But seriously, I might have to get this game when it's on the cheap too. But now I have to ask you something, Why do you like Emma Frost?

Posted by BlackArmor

Sooooooo. it's X-Infamous then

Posted by SexualLobster

I like the idea of having Fable; X-men edition.

But I really wish you got to create your character's appearance at least from scratch.

And yous should be able to choose your powers and stuff, it can't be that hard, I mean Tony Hawk games have been doing it since 2003.
