When you pull the trigger, the icons for the powers should pop up on the screen, corresponding to a set of buttons to activate them. When you start, you'll only have one power per character.
Yeah, I see the buttons pop up in the upper left, but no matter what I do, or what I push, nothing happens.
not every power has an impressive animation that makes its use obvious...and some require that you hold down the button in order for the power to take effect over time. for example, some of wolverines slashes have a slightly different animation but no obvious indication that it's a mutant power, or some of magneto's abilities require you to hold the button down and give them time to work.
once you get things figured out, it is a fun game...although a little bit monotonous
Ok, you may be on to something, because I was controlling Magneto.
Tell me, it strikes me as weird that they don't give you some animation or sound that powers were performed, how else can you be sure they worked? How would I know which powers I have to hold down and which ones I dont? The manual is bad in that respect, its says nothing about individual powers.
I'm on the fence with this game so far. I thought you could choose your team but after playing for about 20 minutes the other night, I never was presented with a choice.
