X-Men Games: All Of The Video Games To Date

x-men-games

Superheroes have been a popular genre for a long time, and Marvel’s X-Men are one of the most well-known. The collaboration has spawned a slew of comic books, helped to launch the contemporary superhero film genre, and produced a slew of X-men games.

The X-Men franchise has grown to be a titan of the superhero genre, with a titan-sized video game library to match.

Because of the long history of the X-Men in video games, the franchise’s games have grown alongside the industry as a whole, taking on some unique forms along the way.

The X-Men games have a lot to offer fans on a broad range of platforms, let’s have a look at all of them and what they have in store for us!


Uncanny X-Men: The Days of Future Past

Uncanny X-Men

In general, The Days Of Future Past is a good action game. If you’re a fan of the x-men games, you’ll love this one. Jumping isn’t great, everything is a little sluggish, and nothing, just not the bosses, actually puts up more of a fight for a combat-focused game.

On the other hand, it has a tonne of content, is IAP-free, and lets you use Future Wolverine to take on dinosaurs. If you’re a fan of the characters, it’s worth a few dollars, but if you’re not, you may want to skip it unless you’re desperate for yet another side-scrolling gaming experience or you want to thank the creator for their pay model.

X-Men: Mutant Academy

X Men: Mutant Academy

Mutant Academy is a mind-blowing game for X-Men fans, regardless of whether you’ve seen the blockbuster movie or read the comics.

With stunning 3D visuals and stunning mutant abilities, Mutant Academy is one of the greatest fighting games since Tekken 3. Aside from Wolverine’s famous “Come get some!” line, they all have enough to say throughout the action sequences, and they may all dress as they choose, whether they were in the film or not.

In time, Wolverine can even wear his 1980s brown and orange. From Gambit’s haughty card-flicking to the Beast’s enlightened condemnation of violence, their personalities and talents are masterfully re-created. Even the Professor is there to help you become a master.

Although there is no sidestep option, many of the techniques are similar to those in Street Fighter. Many special moves grow more impressive as the game progresses, but even the standard movements look fantastic.

In addition to two new outfits for each character and two short movies, there is a slew of artwork and movie photos to be unlocked.

Don’t forget to get an extra dose of X-Men’s adventure and watch Wolverine Movies in Order!

X-Men: The Ravages of Apocalypse

 X-Men: Ravages Of Apocalypse

Due to the ease with which it is possible to portray a world that has ended, The Ravages Of Apocalypse takes place after the world’s end. To capture the whole X-Men games online, Apocalypse has partnered up with what seems to be a secret ally.

“He just did, okay? Shut up.” So who is this unknown buddy? Because it would be a huge spoiler to say so, I won’t.

There are some telltale signs, such as the second episode being titled “The Downfall of Sinister Plans” and attempting to use a God Mode cheat, which implies the sinister team has tampered with it, so be on the lookout for them. Because the new cheat is already in the Help and Readme, it’s pointless.

X-Men 3: Mojo World

X-Men - Mojo World

Mojo World, a Sega Game Gear action platformer, was developed and produced by Sega and released on the Sega Game Gear. Sega’s portable platform gets another X-Men game with this one, the third in the series.

According to the game’s concept, the X-Men are stranded in Mojo World and must fight for their liberation. Choose either Wolverine or Rogue as your X-Men character to begin the game.

To play as another X-Men character, you must first complete a level. There is just one life available to each participant. As a result, if you die as Wolverine, you will no longer be able to play that character. There is no point in continuing if you run out of mutants.

X-Men vs. Street Fighter

X-Men vs. Street Fighter

You’d think that companies would avoid releasing their games on systems that aren’t capable of doing them justice. The PlayStation version of Capcom’s arcade combatant X-Men vs Street Fighter has been radically altered for reasons most likely motivated only by a desire to make money.

The sole new feature is chaining together several super combinations using super cancels. Some characters’ super cancels perform better than others since they were pulled from Street Fighter EX without much consideration.

The whole game seems to have been conceived without any thinking at all. It doesn’t matter whether this is an accurate interpretation of the arcade version of X-Men vs Street Fighter since it’s still a lousy, imbalanced, and random-buttons-press-and-win fighting game.

X-Men 2: Clone Wars

X-Men 2 Clone Wars

The X-Men had a golden age in the early 1990s. Everyone wanted a piece of Marvel’s most recognized superhero team once the comics were relaunched and an animated series on Fox Kids became a smash.

Sega reaped the rewards of the popularity of the X-Men comics and television series in 1993 with X-Men games that were visually identical to the source material but disappointed fans who expected a more engaging gameplay experience.

You could receive Sonic 1 for free in the box and mail in for a free copy of the sequel, so it wasn’t terrible. Despite this, many people found the game tedious and tediously sluggish, with shaky platforming and a slew of cheap hits interspersed throughout.

The Uncanny X-Men

In the Uncanny X-Men, the action occurs from a high vantage point. It begins with the player selecting two of the roster’s X-Men and selecting one of five levels, including practice.

Each level’s objective is to destroy the ‘command center’ located in the middle of the level. To move in any location, leap, and attack, all X-Men have the same skills.

Storm, Iceman, and Cyclops have long-range assaults, whereas Wolverine, Nightcrawler, and Colossus must come near their opponents to use their close-range punches.

They can only take so many blows until they’re knocked out. Until all the X-Men have been used up, gamers may pick two more X-Men to take their place in combat.

Wrapping Up

The X-Men, on the surface, seem to be the ideal bunch of superheroes for a video game adaptation. There are a lot of cool powers and personalities in the Marvel comics that would be a joy to pull off with a game controller. X-Men games have had their moments of brilliance on occasion.

In certain circumstances, all of those aspects come together perfectly. However, there have been a few that have fallen short of expectations and disappointed their devotees. Even if you can’t access all of the reviews, you may still understand how people felt about these games based on their scores.
