X-Men Destiny

Overview -

I think it would be interesting to see the development of a bad game. No one sets out to make a bad game, right? I would love to see how a good idea for a game can go so horribly wrong. Take, for example, X-Men: Destiny. The idea for the game, that you play as a young mutant learning their powers and deciding whether to join the titular X-Men or the Brotherhood of Mutants, is a good one. Actually, it’s a very good one. X-Men games tend to force you to play as one of the X-Men, not considering that it might be more fun to fight for Magneto. But the execution of Destiny is so poor that it ruins any good the original idea had in it.

Video Review

Ranking:

Well folks, it ain’t pretty. X-Men: Destiny is one of the worst looking games I’ve seen in a long time. The only reason I would hesitate to say the graphics look like a game from last-gen I’m sure I’ve seen better graphics last gen. The characters are blocky and stiff. Animations are limited and repetitive. Textures are bland and unappealing. This game is downright ugly.

Audio Review

Ranking:

If this game has got one thing going for it, it’s that there are a ton of mutants crammed into it, all with their own powers. And each power gets its own set of sounds. Other than that, there’s some okay voice acting, with the best probably being Magneto and Wolverine.

Again, I’d love to see what went into making this game. Was it purely for profit, or did the developers hope to make a great X-Men game and got bogged down in the details? Who looked at the graphics and said, “Yeah, that’s what we’ll go with”? In every possible way, X-Men: Destiny is a disappointment.
