X-Men is challenging, but not ridiculously hard. Expect to throw away a couple of bucks if you want to defeat Magneto and save the planet. All in all, X-Men is a great game, possibly one of the best of its time.

Xbox 360OMGN: Online Multiplayer Games Network
While the game is simple and quite short (it can take roughly 30 minutes to complete it), X-Men is well worth the $10, especially if you're nostalgic of early '90s arcade games, and beat-em-ups in general. If you're too young to remember those days, then it's still worth a look for the online multiplayer experience, just to see what those days were like.

I'll admit, players who don't have the same nostalgic attachments might find X-men Arcade a tad dull or silly, but objectively, it's still a solid beat-em-up. If you did frequent arcades in the early '90s and remember just how fun X-men Arcade was, though, this is a must-purchase.

X-Men Arcade has returned to the gaming world almost 20 years after it was released for one reason – nostalgia. And it’s that nostalgia that is going to make most of us fall in love with the game all over again.

X-Men: Arcade is a fun game to spend an intoxicated evening playing with your friends. It brings back a bit of the old arcade feel that’s sorely missed in today’s world of home-based gaming. The game looks outdated, the dialogue is laughable, it’s an easy, incredibly short button masher starring a few decidedly lesser characters (namely Dazzler and Cyclops)…yet somehow it all works. X-Men: Arcade remains a coin muncher in every sense of the word, but that’s okay. That’s how arcade games always were, and I for one would welcome their unlikely return. Welcome to DIE!

Without a death penalty, X-Men Arcade is a very different game than it was when originally released. That said, it’s also very true to its roots, maintaining, perhaps with fault, the look and feel of the original. Even still, X-Men Arcade is an enjoyable diversion that you’ll likely play for hours, particularly if you have Xbox Live or a couple of extra controllers for your friends to join in.

Xbox 360Gametactics
X-Men is 400 points too expensive for my taste. The single player doesn’t have a leg to stand on with no challenge and the online multiplayer is buggy at best. The game’s best quality is the local multiplayer but there you’re limited to playing with just 4 people instead of getting the full 6 player experience of the best arcade version. What you’ve got left is a run of the mill beat’em up with the X-Men license.

Xbox 360The Video Game Critic
Whoever ported this game on Xbox Live was lazy and thoughtless. Either they don't know anything about video games or were just out to make a buck (probably both). You'll enjoy playing through it once, but after that X-Men's replay value becomes negligible.
