The Good, the Bad, and the Juggernaut, Bitch: A Look at X-Men Games

8. X-Men Legends (Gamecube, PS2, Xbox 2004)



Playable Characters: Beast, Colussus, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Gambit, Iceman, Jean Grey, Jubilee, Magma, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Psylocke, Rogue, Storm, Wolverine

Premise: In this action RPG, you take control of up to four players in a quest to stop Magneto. But, in a departure for the series, you initially play as young mutant Alison, who later takes the name Magma after joining the X-Men.

The good: The melee combat, ability to customize your stats, and multiplayer all got high marks. The game was so successful that it created a well-received sequel and paved the way for the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series.

The bad: The voice acting was hit or miss, which has always been the Achilles' heal of these games. The AI also didn't get high praise from critics.

Worth it?
