(Review of PS1 version)

Released just in time for the X-Men feature film, the X-Men game draws from the license of the television show, not the movie. The voices are provided by the same actors who voice the animated series.

Overall, the battles are too long. Power meters take way too long to drain. The training mode in the game takes way too long, but you can skip it by jumping into the Arcade mode. Too long and complex, the combos are difficult to execute within the short time window. The grappling moves are cool, though.

The real killer for this game is the graphics. They look absolutely horrible in most arenas, and many players will probably not dig deeper into the game as a result.

X-Men Mutant Academy does what it's supposed to do and nothing more. It provides a decent, portable fighting experience with character-appropriate special moves and nice graphics for the system.

The game requires you to experiment to figure out how to perform the special attacks, a smart move to sustain interest on the player's part.

With only two buttons, experimentation is not too difficult, so Activision can get away with this tiny gimmick. The instruction booklet tells you two of Wolverine's special moves just to get you started, but you have to do the rest of the work.
