Quake fans will Marvel at the plain levels. The X-Man-sion never looked so boring--and the other levels make it look great. The programmers barely used textures, and some areas are uninhabited mazes.
When you do encounter the X-Men (they're clones), they always start in the same showdown position. Each character has their trademark weapons, but only Wolverine reflects his character--and it's not much. You'll hoist uninspired weapons like a lightning gun and a flamethrower, while standard Quake control options apply. The sound is okay, but the characters grunt instead of speaking.
If you're going to play X-Men Quake, you'd like to be one of the famed mutants--but for that, you must play multiplayer over a network or the Net, and even then you have to find other people with this conversion installed. Maybe you should just stick with regular Quake.
- Always fight Cyclops up close to avoid his optic blasts, then fry him with the flamethrower.
- Use machine guns to take out Psylocke from a distance to avoid being paralyzed.
- When the X-Men team up on you, keep backing oft and firing rockets.
