X-men rules by Cyclops 23 Feb 2011
Having bought "X-men: Mutant Academy" for the Playstation when it came out at the time that the movie was realeased, I was eagerly awaiting something like a sequel or companion game. When I saw that XMA2 was going to be released, I was somewhat hesitant to buy. Would the flaws of the original be corrected? What about characters and gameplay? I mean, c'mon you can only do so much with the 10 X-men found on the first game.
Well, I am happy to report that the flaws have been fixed and that this game is truly an enjoyable experience. The characters from the first game are back, and the developer has thrown in some new ones (Forge, Rogue, Havoc and Nightcrawler) as well as some secret ones. They have added aerial combat and given the "Academy" mode a few new lessons on combos and air-combos. The gameplay itself seems to have sped up and the matches go quickly...x-pecially if you are an x-perienced player who has mastered the combos and counter and special moves. While load times seem a bit longer than necessary, the art is nice and the load screen displays the directional instructions on how to preform the special attacks...so you can study up between matches.
The final verdict on this game is 5 stars becuase it is a vast improvement of the original and the bugs and annoying awkwardness of the original has been overcome and improved upon. Activision and Paradox development have done and astounding job on creating a game that is fun for beginners and challenging for players who happen to be a little more serious in nature. Great game!
