X-Men Destiny

Updated on November 26, 2014

What Is X-Men Destiny?

X-Men Destiny is an action RPG game developed by Silicon Knights and published by Activision. What makes it stand out from the previous X-men games is the fact that it gives a lot of freedom to the players. You will be able to choose between allying yourself with X-Men or the Brotherhood of Mutants, select your powers from a wide array of available ones, and so on. It's still very much an action game, but there are plenty of RPG elements as well!

The game offers three original playable characters (more about them below), and also features many familiar ones like Cyclops, Magneto, Wolverine, and others. It was released for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, and DS platforms on September 27th, 2011.

Grant Alexander

The first playable character in X-Men Destiny

Grant Alexander is pretty much your regular guy - a college freshman from Georgia who dreams of playing football on the varsity squad at University of California, Berkeley. Like many people his age, Grant has absolutely no interest in boring stuff like politics or the ongoing conflict between mutants and humans. At least, not until he finds out that he has mutant powers of his own...

Aimi Yoshida

The second player character of X-Men Destiny

Aimi Yoshida is a 15-year-old Japanese teenager, and a powerful mutant. She was born to mutant parents in Japan, who, fearing for her safety in the light of new mutant camps, smuggled her out of the country. She arrived to San Francisco hidden on a tanker ship, bitter and angry about her parents sending her away. It doesn't look that United States is a much safer place for a mutant to live, however...

Adrian Luca was taught to despise mutants by his extremist father and a militant anti-mutant organization he belonged to, The Purifiers. Ironically, he eventually discovers that he has powers and is a mutant himself. How will he deal with becoming something he was trained to kill his entire life?

Unfortunately, X-Men: Destiny received lukewarm and even scathing reviews from the critics, and the general gaming audience also found the game to be lacking. On MetaCritic, for example, the PS3 version only scored 50 points out of a 100, with the user score being a similar figure as well. Most people mentioned poor gameplay, lack of customization, and uninspired plot among their complaints.

      I haven't played the game, but I have seen the movie X-Men several times.

      I love show, so I'm sure the game would be pretty cool too. :)
