1UP: Review: X-Men Destiny Chooses the Power of Irrelevance

Mike Nelson writes: It's never acknowledged at any point in X-Men Destiny that you're one of the most powerful mutants to ever appear in the X-Men universe. You can freely swap out abilities and powers at will, setting enemies on fire one second and freezing them the next. It's uncanny... astonishing even (see what I did there?). Yet when you're approached by any of the X-Men or Magneto's Brotherhood, this topic is never breached. You're simply treated as a newb that needs some coaching throughout the game's brief four hour adventure.

I do not know if the game is any good because most reviews are crap. No written standards = no honest, accurate review. However, there do seem to be some crater sized holes in the story.

Perhaps a Homeland effort would have sold the game. Not made it any better, but as with Homeland sell the game not on it's merits but rather on it's advertising budget.

The Best and Worst of Superhero Games

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."

PS1 Spider-Man Wins it for me because Stan Lee narrated it all, his opening speech alone gets you pumped, also Worst: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows...ew

I agree with the 1st spiderman. I have it on DC though. Hulk UD is a fun game as well.

Stalmaster2143d ago

Probably in the minority but I really enjoyed Batman Begins before the Arkham series came along.

MrsNesbitt2143d ago

Actually really enjoyed that too! But had to opt for Batman Returns on the SNES

spider-man ten pin bowling was the best

Deadpool was trash though, it's surprising to me that Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker isn't on the list but then again that's probably a good thing.

Ah yes and Spider-Man (2000) man that game was my childhood but the sequel Enter Electro was so underwhelming.

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?
