Time to don your spandex and sharpen your claws, because Activision’s [i]X-Men: The Official Game[/i] hits store shelves today with a version for practically every system on the market. Inspired by the Marvel Entertainment super hero franchise, this title comes as a warm up for those awaiting the release of X-Men: The Last Stand in theatres this weekend.
“In [i]X-Men: The Official Game[/i], players will experience the events leading up
to the ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’” said Will Kassoy, vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc. “Co-written by Zak Penn, the screenwriter of the film, and legendary comic book writer Chris Claremont, and featuring the voice talent of Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore and Alan Cumming, the game truly enables players to become a part of the X-Men movie universe.”
The game’s feature characters are Nightcrawler, Iceman and, of course, Wolverine as they battle the Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike and Multiple Man to determine the fate of man and mutant-kind.
For the first time, [I]X-Men: The Official Game[/I] lets players truly experience
the powers of three popular Super Heroes from the X-Men movie universe by
allowing them to take on the roles of Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Iceman as
they wield and upgrade their signature powers and maneuver through unique
environments designed to showcase their Super Hero abilities. Assisted by
other X-Men characters including Storm and Colossus, players will use an
advanced control scheme to master and control the characters as they unleash
Wolverine’s combat rage, experience Nightcrawler’s acrobatics and
teleportation powers and glide through the air on Iceman’s ice slide.
