X-Men Arcade

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been discussed previously.

Picked up the Xbox Live Arcade version of this game a couple nights back. Nostalgia factor was considerable; it was one of the first arcade games I ever played when I was like four or five. Fifteen or so years later, I don't really feel like it's that great of a game. I got really frustrated playing the arcade cabinet when I was a kid, and it had a good bit to do with me sucking at the game, but looking at the game's design now I realize it really was set up to eat loads of quarters (derp, it's an arcade game). Still fun to breserker barrage sentinels as Wolverine, but the game overall doesn't hold up that well.

Anyone else played this/have memories of the old arcade cabinets?

Used to play it a lot when I was younger, even had a chance to go at it again a few years ago when we found a place that had the double-screen, six player model.

Yeah, it didn't age well.

The trial was considerably fun. Still, it's hard to play something like that after coming from Scott Pilgrim (blocking would be nice). Nightcrawler is OPed. I'll pick this up when it gets Deal of the Week status on XBL.
