Fighter and beat em up brawler with the X-Men
In X-Men: Children of the Atom you will take on a journey at the helm of your favorite X Men, whether that be Wolverine, Dr. X, or whomever else. The cast of the original animated and comics series is present in full; now, this is more of a brawler, sidescroller game, but the number of moves per character, of special attacks and plain attacks is pretty huge; it almost feels like you are playing a fighter game, with continually scrolling lists of enemies coming at you. Sure, the boss fights feel that way, mostly, while the street encounters are definitely less diverse and challenging, rather more clearly tuned towards classic punching out. Plus, graphically X-Men: Children of the Atom takes on the vibe of the modern animated series look, less that of the original cartoons, but I don't think it will push purists away; the animations and sounds are really buff like, really charged, and so the vibe of the game is a very energizing one. Therefore, when punching your way about and using X Men superpowers is what you're looking for, X-Men: Children of the Atom will deliver a mighty punch. A good alternative is also FX Fighter, which, while not as colorful or featuring well known characters, is still a pretty fun action fighter game with a similar kind of vibe.
