I am a huge X-Men fan and I have to first say that I bought this game on the day it came out and had beaten it with most extras unlocked by the third day I owned it.

If some of you recall Activision has had a history of X-Men movie spinoff games first starting with the PSX's platform X-Men: Mutant Academy which eventually "evolved" into the incredibly good X-Men: Next Dimension and then again with the great but lacking X2: Wolverine's Revenge game when the second movie hit theaters. As a previous reviewer has stated, X-Men: the Official Game does have the feel of Wolverine's Revenge to an extent. However it is both improved and downgraged in it's own respects.

X-Men: The Official Game is a prequal to the third istallment to the X-Men movie franchise as opposed to being a direct movie adaptation version, the bonus of this particular concept is the ability to play as Nightcrawler the "bamfing" blue mutant demon who is not present in X-Men 3 due to frequent pre-production issues when X-Men: The Last Stand was starting to come to fruition.

This X-Men game starts with the X-Men training in the danger room and mourning the recently departed Jean Grey and takes a team of five (though you only ever control three mutants in depth) mutant heroes through an unresolved Col. Stryker plot that was not spoken about in the second X-Men film. The three characters you get to control in depth (I say this because you do get to tell Storm when to fire lightning in particular levels) are Iceman, Wolverine and of course the loveable Nightcrawler. Each of these character have their own defining traits as you play as them and never feel simply like the same three heroes with different special abilities.

A lot of people give this game a bad review because they're strictly gamers, not necessarily comic book fans, and they have a natural bias against games based on movies. I myself am not an avid gamer. This review is written from a hardcore comic book fan's point of view.

I personally really enjoyed this game. Yes, it can be slightly redundant. Yes, it can be slightly annoying at times since there aren't as many checkpoints as there could be. But the look of the game is incredible. The environments match the style of the movies very closely. Not to mention the levels can be a lot of fun to play.

A lot of people are ticked off that the cut scenes are nothing more than still photos of the characters with voice-overs. This is meant to represent comic book story frames. Besides, I think this method looks a whole lot better than cut scenes in other comic book games, such as Spider-Man 2.

If you're strictly a gamer, you might hate this game. But if you love the X-Men, then you shouldn't be disappointed by this. It's a fun game with lots of extras (like Danger Room missions and extra costumes), and it ties X2 and X3 together, so what more could you want?

It's so much fun to play as Nightcrawler that that's all I wanted to do. It ended up that I was only playing the other missions to get to the next nightcrawler mission. His teleporting, wall-walking, and other acrobatics are just cool. He should get his own game. It's sort of a combination of the old Prince of Persia and Spiderman. Teleporting really cuts down on all that boring _walking_ you normally do. The teleporting is also designed well so that you still have to work to beat the levels, and not *just* teleport around. His attacks aren't all that strong, so you do quick attacks, teleport out of the way, and then attack some more.

After a while, Wolverine grew on me. Like most people, he's the reason I got the game to begin with, but it can get boring just killing dozens or hundreds of the same goons. For all the brawling he does, he could use a lot more combo moves, but he only has a couple basic ones. On the plus side, the different types of enemies do require some different tactics. Unfortunately, I think they missed some opportunities. There's no chance for stealth, you just go up and start fighting. He can break lots of stuff with his claws, but not anything useful. For example, you can destroy all the support posts for some platforms, but nothing falls down. He also can't do anything else cool with his claws, like climb walls or anything. His healing ability would be an interesting and unique gameplay dynamic, except that they failed to make it unique. For some unexplained reason, the other two characters also have a healing option that can be charged up and used.

Iceman got turned into the silver surfer. He's *always* on his ice ramp thing. I kind of like that each of the characters has totally different styles of play, but the ice skating gets old after a while. It would have been better if only a few of his levels were on ice, or if you could get on and off.

X-Men: The Official game isn't as bad as any negative reviews may lead you to believe. This definitely isn't the worst game in the X-Men franchise to ever be created. If I had to describe what this game was like, I'd say that it's like X2: Wolverine's Revenge but better.

The story fills in all that takes place after the movie X2: X-Men United and X3: the Last Stand. So you will have a better understanding of the next film by playing this game. The story parts of the game are told through comic book-like pictures which occasionally move. At first; it seems strange, but as you progress through the game, you get used to it. It's a ton better looking than the animated stories in between the game "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".

The characters look like their movie counterparts during the story and game play. Wolverine actually looks like Hugh Jackman in this game, unlike in X2. I was very pleased with how the look and feel is like if you were playing the movie.

The gameplay in itself is pretty easy to learn. The look of the game reminds me of a better version of what I always refer to, Wolverine's Revenge. But if you didn't like that game, don't let that scare you off.

You play as Wolverine, Iceman and Nightcrawler, all voiced by the actors who portray them in the films. It is fun being all three. As Wolverine, you go on a rampage of chaos as you tear through your opponents. As Nightcrawler, you can teleport from place to place and get to many places you couldn't without teleporting. The coolest thing about Iceman is when you ride on ice. It has to be seen to be believed! You also have Colossus and Storm to help you out in this game on certain levels. New and old villians return in this game, some of which I can't say or it would spoil it.
