Jeffrey Matulef writes: "X-Men: Destiny is a terrible game in most ways. It's an ugly, stupid title that's shoddily constructed. And yet, it gets the most important thing right: crafting your own mutant works due to finely tuned balancing, and tough choices coupled with haphazard item acquisition ensure that the focus is squarely on that.
Those expecting a well told, immersive X-Men experience will shudder at its chunky character designs, shabby presentation and stilted dialogue, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy myself with it."

Mrs Nesbitt from BBG writes: "The superhero genre is massive in the movie industry with MCU dominating the scene with several Avengers movies and other subsequent titles. So, what about video games? Similar to the game to movie transition, movies have not always transitioned very well. (Dare I mention Charlie’s Angels for GameCube?) Luckily for us, we have had some spectacular superhero games, and equally, some downright “what were they thinking” titles."
Neocrisis - Does the emphasis on "choice," as opposed to a more traditional linearity, make Destiny stand out from the rest? Or does Destiny fall short of its potential?
