Reviewed: X-Men: The Official Game
Producer: Activision
Required System:  PC, Xbox360, PS2

When Activision started picking up licenses to do video games on Marvel Comics characters a few years back, they really started out to take over. In recent years, with the exception of a very ill-fated and poorly coded EA title, Activision's been the purveyor of every Marvel title in recent years. The retinue includes a trio of mediocre fighting games featuring the X-Men, a set of mediocre Spider-Man titles with one jaw-dropping standout (Spider-Man 2), a pair of nicely done X-Men RPG's, and of course the line of X-Men movie titles.

Last time, Activision's movie tie-in title focused entirely on Wolverine, exploring his past and present and dropping in plenty of enemies for him to fight, as well as stealth-based missions.

This time around, Activision expanded their roster slightly, but forgot to make a decent game in which to put their characters. The result doesn't impress.
