Minions of mutants in the palm of your hand.
Activision delivers classic arcade action in its latest trip to the X-Men universe. Half button-mashing brawler and half tournament fighter, Reign of Apocalypse gives Marvel's mutants ample opportunity to do what they do best: wreak havoc on bad guys.
In the Story Mode, players can guide either Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm or Rogue through a side-scrolling brawl-fest. In all, 16 X-Men all-stars can be unlocked by progressing through the game. With the help of the Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable, two friends can go head-to-head in the Versus Mode or work together to overthrow Apocalypse in the Cooperative Mode.
Punch-and-run action can become a bit repetitive at times, but the two-player features are a really nice addition to the game. Backed by GBA's detailed graphics and a techno-beat soundtrack, X-Men: Reign of the Apocalypse makes an admirable addition to the library of any mutant-friendly gamer.
