X-Men Legends

Dark winter evenings are the perfect opportunity to get stuck into some decent console gaming andI have resolved to try and finish off some games that have been languishing at various stages of completion for far too long.

This evenings achievement was to polish off the action rpg X-Men Legends at last. It’s been an enjoyable experience playing with different combinations of characters and levelling up their various powers and abilities. I did tend to fall back on the classic team of Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm and Iceman though – Iceman to pin down enemies with his freezing powers, Cyclops and Storm for ranged attacks and leadership bonuses, and Wolverine as the front line attacker.

I went into the final boss battle on Asteroid M with only two health packs, so I had to play cat and mouse to giveWolverine chance to heal up between attacks, but a bit of careful persistance paid off and the X Men saved the world again. Hurrah!

I think it might be Canis Canem Edit next if I can manage to prise Jamie off the PS2 …
