X-men vs Spiderman Games

by Lady V

So i started playing the Spiderman Web of Shadows game on my Xbox360 and i started to think to myself, "how come non X-men games actually have better game play"? I am not indicating that the previous X-men games such as X-men Legends 1 and 2 are not good, but it does not seem to hit it off with a long time X-men fan such as myself. So i thought maybe it just didn't appeal to me!

But, boy was i wrong! This topic started to come up and most of my friends who actually play console games and are X-men fans agree that X-men games just ain't that good. However, another thought came into mind and we've concluded after much argument why game makers tend to make X-men games look "bad" that it could be because we expect too much as X-men fans. We want it to be perfect! Why shouldn't we expect anything more than perfect?

After all, gaming isn't just gaming nowadays. Apart from the story of the game, which i think greatly affects your perception towards the game, there are other fancy graphics, 3d effects, etc, that will need to be taken into consideration. I tried playing the Marvel Alliance on my Playstation Portable (PSP), and did i really dislike it because i guess i like console games much more.

Anyway, i decided to stop having expectations and maybe i might actually enjoy the upcoming X-men Origins: Wolverine game that will be released around May 2009. Anyway, here is the first hand preview of the game here.
