Essential Marvel title for the SNES
This game is a must have for any SNES owner thats a True Believer. This game combines the beat em' up elements of Final Fight, with the special move controls of Street Fighter II, with a cool story. The sprites are bold and crisp, with great music as well! Fully recommended!

Capcom makes a unique,top-notch X Men game
This X Men game is a combination of various genres, or as I like to call it, a side-scrolling fightemup. There is some platforming, some comboing like in a beatemup, and you're required to input certain buttons combinations for moves like a fighter. The sprites are big, the animations are smooth, and this is a good spin-off of Capcom's Marvel 2D fighters.
You can choose from 5 X-Men at the start, each with their own moveset and strengths, and each with their own initial stage tailored to their abilities. Once you finish the initial stages, you can choose which character to use for the remaining stages, and certain characters fit better than others. Overall, the action is fast, the stage designs are varied, and the game gives the player is good but fair challenge. This game may take a little while to learn, since you need to know moves for each character, and once all your characters run out of lives, you must restart the whole game.
But don't let that intimidate you, the difficulty curve is quite even and you will be able to do very well after a few tries. And too many games don't give the player enough challenge, in my opinion. It's worth noting that this game must have been done by the Mega Man X team. The adrenaline pumping synthesized guitar music, choosing which stage to play first, flashy explosions, and varied stages and bosses, there are so many signature trademarks of the MMX series.Read full review

A tad on the hard side, but the game is really well-done. Nice prequel to X-Men: Children of the Atom on Saturn/PlayStation/MS-DOS. The animation is nice and fluid, and the X-Men look normal (unlike Konami and Acclaim using two-decade old costumes for their X-Men in their games) and, for the guys, Psylocke, who was a hot item at the time. Also, during its release, this gave X-Men some normalcy, as Marvel went stupid and did all kind of lame things in the comics that nobody cares about anymore. (The X-Men comics really suck now. It's all talky and no action.) Here, I get to fight the levels out, and, also, this game molds nicely with the following other games: X-Men 1 & 2 on Genesis and Game Gear, X-Men in the arcade by Konami, X-Men/Spider-Man, Wolverine and Wolverine: AR, and Captain America and the Avengers by Data East. I've nothing negative to say about this game.Read full review
