Silicon Knights announced they were making an X-Men game back in October last year. From early descriptions it sounded as if an emphasis was being placed on player choices and branching storylines. In other words, there’s potential in this story-driven, X-Men RPG game.
At last, we have some gameplay footage and while it doesn’t show you things like user interfaces and stats, it does show you the mutant recruits you’ll be playing as. It also shows you some of their powers and some familiar faces. Sadly, it looks as if it’s running on a PlayStation 2; that or they’re going for some comic book graphics art style, which clearly isn’t working. Check it out and decide for yourselves, but with a franchise as massive and loved as X-Men, it’s odd to see lax presentation.[youtube]sug_BXCNSQM[/youtube]
