The Cowabunga Collection is one of the best retro collections ever. Another '90s pop culture hit, the X-Men, could comprise a similar collection.
Im not so sure. There was only 1 arcade beat em up and the others were fighters. The home games werent that memorable.
The Home xmen games on snes and genesis made by Capcom and Sega were all memorable good
Side action beat em up is the way to go Xmen only have one cabinet I know of that was done by Konami and I have the arcade game on my PS3. Turtles have two arcade cabinets Turtles has always been a beatem up on the NES, SNES and Genesis minus the first game on the NES. Most of the XMEN games are side scrolling platformers or shitty one offs by LJN. You can't rival side action beatem ups with platformers.
The Author clearly didnt play the 8-16 bit Marvel games. (Most of them sucked)
Yeah, the x-men game on the nes was ridiculously bad.
And even the snes and genesis games, while they were ok, they aren't games we think of fondly as favorites (well barring this author anyway lol).
They were not as good as you might think. Please don't give them ideas.
I guess… I mean the 2 Sega games were good, I think.
Spider-man and the X-Men was mediocre at best but X-Men 2 Clone Wars was actually pretty good especially in the sound department.
I want an updated/Remastered X-Men Legends 1 & 2! I would also love the X-Men Arcade game.
ugh most of the Xmen games were hot garbage on the home consoles. I think there was a decent Wolverine side scroller game and the Genesis one was alright.
It doesn't seem to get talked about much, but X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse was awesome. I'd be for an X-Men collection, but I know most of the games weren't that good. The LJN ones could at least be more playable with a rewind function.
The list below would make a fantastic compilation
X Men Mutant Apocalypse - SNES
Marvel Super Heroes War of the Gem - SNES
Captain America and The Avengers - NES- Bonus
Wolverine Admantium Rage - SNES
Wolverine - NES
X - Men the Arcade Game - Arcade
X-Men Children of the Atom - Arcade
Spiderman X-Men - Sega Genesis
X-Men - Sega Genesis
X-Men 2 - Sega Genesis
Wolverine- Admantium Rage - Sega Genesis
Note I would love to see an X- Men Legends 1 and 2, re-master for current and last generation systems.
It would if it included children of the atom.
The issue is that various quality X-Men titles were released by different publishers so it’s impossible to get as many under one collection
Konami released all those TMNT games hence why we had a large collection
