      Not worth buying but you might enjoy a rental

      X-Men games aren't exactly reputed for being especially good titles, yet despite its flaws, X-Men Legends 2 has some gun gameplay and is worth a casual play if you don't have to go out of your way to get it. The game is quite simple - with the mechanics consisting of hunting around, killing enemies, rinsing and repeat - and while this makes it accessible, it also makes it seem often quite bland and lacking in flavour.

      There are some loving nods to the various forms of the X-Men mythos, but fanboy service isn't adequate alone to make a game worthwhile, and the gameplay isn't exactly original or clever; at its heart this is a medieval button basher, and I guess if you're in the mood for just that it's fine, but more discerning players will not stand for it.

      Visually, the game does look better than it probably deserves to on the merits of its gameplay. The renderings are impressive given the PSP's architecture, and the environments are splendidly crafted (even though, design wise, they are incredibly samey). I just wish they'd focused more on the gameplay than the graphics. Aurally, the game's pretty standard, featuring no music that really grabs you, although some of the voice work is decent.

      Lean gameplay mechanics aren't the only problems in this game; it's got plenty of graphical glitches (which work against even the game's attempt to be visually impressive), which make this an even more frustrating experience. X-Men fans who enjoy spotting the plentiful references to the mythology might enjoy this to an extent, but it's a base, very simple game that doesn't do the franchise any justice.

      I recommend for X-men likers!

      A very good game for psp. It is fun if you like the marvel games with lots of superheroes. There is a good selection of x-men you can be and they all have there unique powers.

      It starts off relatively easy but when you get further on it gets harder and harder but it is a very good game, well if you like this type of game and i recommend it. it's works very on the psp with good graphics and is easy to learn the buttons.

      This game is just like the first x-men legends but in this game you can choose from a wider selection of people so you can choose from both sides, bad and good!
