A good action/strategy blend, the RPG-style top-down view in this game is replaced by a side-scrolling view when combat starts. Many strategic elements are still present (choose a hero to disarm traps, etc.), but they pale in comparison to the fun arcade mode where you get to use cool X-men powers. The game is also highly replayable, since new mazes can be generated, and you can pick five heroes for any session from a pool of 25. Plus you can download the scenario editor below to create your own scenarios. The bottom line: if you are fan of the X-Men, or crave a well-balanced superhero RPG/action hybrid, X-Men 2 is a must-have. Two thumbs up!
