Well, I've posted my review of X-Men Legends for the Xbox, so in CG tradition, this post is to discuss any thoughts about my review or the game itself.

Personally, I found it a pretty fun single player title, but it's far more fun with a few friends over thanks to the pretty stupid AI in your teammates.

Any questions or thoughts? Ask away. It's a boring day at work, so I need something to talk about. smile

I'll second the co-op mode fun!  I've had a blast with it by myself, but it really gets interesting with 2 or 3 other people playing alongside you.  The cries of 'watch where you're throwing that barrel!' and 'I was going to kill that!' are quite amusing.

If only my job would give me credit for selling copies of x-men legends my numbers would look better than they currently do.  biggrin

Played through the whole game with three other people over the course of a week and we all had an absolute blast (and got little sleep some nights). Looking forward to the sequel already smile

Oh, and we hardly touched Wolverine after the first couple of missions. Most of the time our group consisted of Storm, Cyclops (or Jean Grey), Iceman and Colossus (before Colossus it was Rogue) who all reached level 39-40. We found that the game did get rediculously easy (especially with Storm), but was still a lot of fun.

That and some special combos like the Fastball Special (take a melee powerhouse like Rogue or Colossus and throw another character, especially Wolverine) are hard to pull off in single player.

is there a level cap?

if I can level up in the "training room" I'm a little concerned about maxing out my characters before finishing the game.

It can be a fun game but it can also be frustrating.  I can handle the 'twitch' aspect when I am only controlling a single character but four can frantic.  Your  computer controlled teammates are pretty good but I would rather play Freedom Force.

I don't think there is. I had to redo some missions in the Training Room a few times, and gained a ton of exp as a result, but while I needed an absolute ton of exp to gain the next level (in the millions, easily), I never hit any kind of cap.

I thought the review was very well done! I'm pretty much in agreement with what you've said, considering I'm only past the first real mission right now slywink For some reason I LOVE these "dungeon crawlers" on the Xbox - Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Fallout, the D&D Heroes game - I love 'em all. Thanks for a solid review, but as soon as I heard "along the lines of Baldur's Gate and Champions of Norrath" I was off to Gamestop with money in hand.

Nice review, Destructor. I don't know if I'll be picking this up immediately but it will probably make the Chritmas list. It looks like it would be fun to play co-op with my brother or some friends.

I hate it when the review doesn't discuss in detail the ingame save mechanics:
- When can you save?
- How often?
- Is it resticted to certain points in the mission?
- How far apart are the saves?

Could you please cover that? :-)
