graphics don't make a game unless the game is only about visuals. I'm not as excited about this as I would be if it were X-Men Legends 3 or Ultimate Alliance 3, but considering what it is that SK is doing, I'm definitely going to be checking it out. People complain about not being able to make custom characters. I think that's a terrible reason to bash the game. They are providing a story tailored to 3 individuals with a plethora of choices, both cosmetic and gameplay based in a universe that is epic on a scale that few can successfully cultivate. I've been an X-Men fan for over 20 years and am always hesitant, but I always give it a chance. If it sucks, oh well. Wait for the next one or go back to the ones you love. Don't knock it till you've tried it.
I keep waiting for another XMen action role playing game. The important things from the series for me are "more superheros to play as", "better graphics", and do a "splitscreen coop"... It's hard to play with my kids when we always have to move around and have someone stuck in a corner!! I don't know what these guys are thinking?!? They are so off target!
custom characters would have been a better choice in this instance. so far this just sounds like city of heroes and villans. but the gameplay it has shown so far looks pretty clunky like it was going to be an mmo but rushed to a console for single player.
hope the powers and storyline deliver..otherwise there's not much going for the game ......plus a bit disappointed that you cant make custom characters
