X-Men Legends: A Random Review

image

X-Men Legends is an action role-playing video game developed by Raven Software and published by Activision. It was released on the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox consoles in the fall of 2004. It follows Alison Crestmere, a young mutant who has the ability to summon and control volcanic activity. As Alison is taught to control her powers at the X-Mansion, the X-Men are sent on several missions. Eventually the X-Men learn of Magneto’s plan to cover the Earth in darkness from his base on Asteroid M. You can play as one of fifteen X-Men Characters.

It’s a role-playing so that means you create a team, in this case, four characters at a time, to gain experience and level up as the story unfolds. You can assign them roles as AI characters, equip weapons and powers at will, and traverse through a large-scale marvel universe to foil Magneto’s evil scheme.

What I love about X-Men Legends:

I enjoyed unlocking the characters as I progressed through the story, collecting Danger Room discs to add playability to the game, the feeling of having my hardwork pay off every time a character leveled up, and the background knowledge I get from playing trivial games, acquiring marvel comic book covers, and reading each character bio. The soundtrack wasn’t bad either.

What I didn’t love about X-Men Legends:

The story was kinda short for my taste and the replayability is moderately low. The graphics weren’t the greatest either. After beating the game, all you get is some stupid alternate costumes that look like cheetah print or something. The multiplayer mode wasn’t that all too good.

Overall rating:
8.5/10

The game in it entirety was great for its time. It still is great. Nowadays, you gotta pay for DLC packages for the newer games. So I’m glad X-Men Legends came out over ten years ago. Wow! Has it really been that long?! Before, there was no wifi or DLC so the storyline and the like were the main priority. There was a sequel called X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse but it wasn’t as good. Grade: B

What if…

Hello to my fallen angels! How is your weekend going? For a couple days now, I began to wonder what if certain things in my life were changed. Like in an alternative universe where I’m straight, my dad stayed in the picture instead of my mom, or if I was born in the 70s. How you ever read those comic books where they ask the same question? Like in Spider-Man: what if Spider-Man married the Black Cat? Or in X-Men: what if Wolverine was a woman? The whole idea of alternate time streams is so fascinating! For instance, if I was straight, my mother would still be in my life because there would be nothing she can’t accept. I would still probably live with her and therefore not have became independent as soon as I did in reality. I wouldn’t have meet my ex but instead would probably have been though the same motions with a girl. I would be a father by now because I enjoy sex. (Who doesn’t?) I would have never been a part of True Colors or even care to understand the fight for LGBT Rights. I would have been quite popular in grade school because there would have been no rumors about me being gay. My mother would be a miserable old hag in any given alternative universe so if she remained in my life, I would be miserable too because misery loves company. Nothing much would change when it came to my dad because he loves me regardless of my sexual orientation. My brother might be afraid that I would steal his wife away from him and therefore I might not have the close bond with him that I do now. Because my mom would accept my heterosexuality, I wouldn’t have been kicked out of her house and would have never met my current friends. God has a way of making something bad happen so that something worse wouldn’t take its place. So try this yourself. Imagine that one crucial part of you is different or nonexistent. See where and how far that timeline would meander off reality’s course of action. Have a wonderful day, my lovely fallen angels! Over and out.
