Either if you like Marvel from the movies or the comics, X-Men Destiny is a game that you might want to give a shot to, especially because of its playability that it’s a lot like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or Marvel’s Avengers. This action/role-playing game was developed by Silicon Knights and published by Activision in 2011 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, and Wii.
When the end justifies the means
The story takes place in San Francisco where the chief of Mutant Response Division holds a rally, honoring the recently deceased Professor X, when all of a sudden the event is attacked by The Purifiers, a religious anti-mutant organization that is presented as the main enemies to all mutant beings as they won’t tolerate peace between humans and those with their blood-stained with mutations, so even terrorism will be justified for them if it is what it takes to purify society.
Choose your own path of Justice
As soon as you start, you will have to select one of three possible main characters, Aimi Yoshida, Adrian Luca, or Grant Alexander, and the kind of power we want to awake as a new mutant, essentially these decisions won’t affect the outcome of the story, but mostly the way you will be fighting against your enemies and the combination of attacks you will get to perform, however, all of your other choices could get you closer to either a darker or lighter side of the road which is one most interesting things about this title. On the other hand, if you expect your choices to result in very specific and alternate outcomes it might not all the times meet your expectations.
Evolve and Rise
During the game, you will have the opportunity to evolve the initial power that you chose, and like many other games when you defeat enemies you will gain points that you could use to upgrade your mutation, abilities with X-Genes, or even the suit you are wearing, which in my opinion is always a good characteristic all games should have.
What to expect from the gameplay?
Besides the choices you can make throughout the eight missions of the game, if you have played other Marvel games you will find an easy combat style as it is a Beat them all type of game which means that probably to defeat, at least normal enemies throwing punches and releasing your special abilities will be more than enough to move forward.
If you asked my opinion, the game is good enough if you are a fan of the X-Men series and you want to spend some time taking down some purifiers. Nonetheless, if you are looking for the best experience with the most entertaining combat system this might not be your game, though making choices and upgrading abilities is always fascinating for me.
- The story is good enough if you are a fan of X-Men
- The Upgrading system is pretty decent
- It could take you only 4 to 5 hours to complete.
- Sometimes the choices you make won’t affect significantly the outcomes.
