X Men Gamemaster's Legacy

a game by Sega

Platform: GameGear

Genre: Action

See also: X-Men Games

Sharp graphics and good, varied game play make this adventure an X-cellent addition to the X-Men saga.

X-tra! X-tra!

If you played Spider-Man/X-Men, you know what can happen to Game Gear superheroes: Small sprites and murky game play can generate eye aches, headaches, and thumb aches. Fortunately, this X-Men delivers more than aches and pains.

The game presents a lengthy maze mystery that enables you to eventually play as all the X'ers. The effective controls change to take advantage of the unique Mutant Powers of Cyclops, Storm, and the other heroes. You can also control your direction in the game: Unlike Spider-Man/X-Men, which made you solve a tedious maze before you could choose characters, this game begins with level-select and character-select options that immerse you in the action.

Great X-pectations

This Game Gear cart is a good-looking game. You'll instantly notice the bigger sprites, imaginative backgrounds, and good details that make the graphics X-citing. The sounds are better than average for a handheld, with clear music that changes each level.

Wolverine's 16-bit games is disappointing but you still want some mutant mayhem, X-periment with X-Men: Gamemaster's Legacy. At the Mental difficulty level, it can be a tough game, but X still marks the spot for fun.

ProTips:

  • Creepy creatures are usually lurking outside the Transporters, so be ready to fight as you emerge.
  • Mutant powers, like Cyclops' Optic Blasts, are In limited supply, so never use them when simple punches will do.

The Gamesmaster has approached the X-Men, dangling a valuable Jprize--the cure to the Legacy Virus. Against their instincts, the X-Men take the bait in a desperate attempt to stop the plague that's decimating the mutant population.

Forced to split up. Gambit, Wolverine, Rogue, Bishop and Jean Grey head into five treacherous locations hinted to by the Gamesmaster. Cyclops and Storm must set out to reunite the team, one by one.

Are you ready for some uncanny action with the X-Men?

THE GOOD

I love the abilities of the various X-Men (and X-Women). I think this adds to an otherwise well-done theme.

THE BAD

It's close to your typical superhero beat-'em-up game, but this one narrowly escaped that pitfall.

THE UGLY

Some of the blinking effects of the graphics are enough to induce severe stomach trauma.

The second awesome Game Gear game starring the X-Men is here! The Legacy Virus is threatening to wipe out all of mutantkind, and a mysterious being known as the GameMaster knows the secret to stopping it.

There are eight levels of action, featuring seven of your favorite X-Men. It includes Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine, Gambit, Rogue, Bishop, and Phoenix. Each has his/her own powers and abilities, but will they be enough to save mutantkind? Find out with this great Game Gear game.
