X-Men Legends – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Parents will note that X-Men Legends has been hit with a T rating. However, there's not really anything all that objectionable in the game itself. If your kids read the comics or watch the films or animated show, there's really no reason why they can't play the game.

X-Men fans will find that this is arguably the best X-Men game of all time. It is not without some flaws, but those are outweighed by everything developers Raven Software got right. This doesn't feel like a generic game with the X-Men included in much the same way that Knights of the Old Republic feels like a legitimate part of the Star Wars universe.

Casual gamers will find the steep learning curve and the ability to team up with three other friends as definite plusses. If you liked Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance or Hunter: The Reckoning, then you'll enjoy this game.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers can play and enjoy the game—the title features an option for onscreen subtitles for all dialogue sequences.
