When it comes to the world of video games, the mutant fighting force known as the X-Men are probably best known for their work in fighting games. More specifically, the X-Men are best known for their work in Capcom's fighting games, which turned the eye-beam-firing Cyclops into a Ryu-like fighter, complete with a dragon punch. While the X-Men have occasionally crept into other genres, the results are usually less than favorable. X-Men Legends, however, packs in a good number of different playable characters and great-looking graphics into an easy, but fairly lengthy adventure. It all combines to form a great action RPG with strong action and a well-told story.
Though you're usually free to form a four-man team using any of the X-Men, the game's story is mostly told from the perspective of a new mutant. Make that New Mutant. Magma, who first appeared in New Mutants #8, is a new addition to the X-Men team. The game reworks the character's origins a bit, but to make a long and occasionally convoluted comic book story short, you'll start the game as Wolverine, and you'll be tasked with rescuing young Magma from members of the Brotherhood of Mutants, Magneto's gang of freakish thugs. What starts out as a simple rescue and indoctrination into Professor X's mutant school eventually grows in scope, of course, until the fate of humanity swings in the balance.
