Superheroes attack

Ok, superheroes are cool. They are the coolest thing ever. There is almost no boy that wasn't some kind of a superhero at some time in his life. Everybody's got their favorite superheros. It's only logical, after comics and cartoon and movies to make games about superheroes and this one is about superheroes fighting each other. This game is very simple beat'em up arcade in its gameplay. You chose a X-Men superhero, your friend chose another one, and then beat each other sensless. In the game, of course. The one who gets two out of three matches, wins! You don'get to show off your superpowers, but by making regular kicks and hits, your "X-Power" gauge fills up a little by little until it gets full, and then you can perform your special X-Ability move. That's something that distinguish this from other figthing games, but the problem with those special moves is that they require a very complicated combination of buttons to be pressed that the player won't know how to do it or won't make it in time. First drawbacks in this game whilst the second is the mediocre visuals. But I wouldn't let that discourage you. You should at least give it a try because it's fighting between X-Men superheroes and that at least has got to be some kind of fun. You could like it.
