Silicon Knights was a game developer that not so long ago was on the top of the list of brilliant game designs. Eternal Darkness, Metal Gear Solid, and the like were games that were nothing short of brilliant. Careful attention was given to minute detail making their games a real fan fare to play and the storylines were riveting.
Unfortunately, their last few releases have been poor and shoddy development, with shoddy stories that don’t make much sense. X-Men: Destiny is a perfect example of a boring uninteresting combat game with lame missions. The storyline follows after the death of Charles Xavier. Some of the other characters are, Grant Alexander, Aimi Yoshida, Adrian Luca. You battle anti-mutant enemies through many levels of mayhem. Regardless of which mission you choose, the game structure will remain the same, with a small deviation from the narrator. Cyclops, Wolverine, and Magneto all feature in the game so X-men fans will find it rather interesting. The players can change the storyline according to their actions and conversations.
Throughout the game you accumulate Brotherhood and X-men points and this will allow you to vary your attacks and change your moves. There are quite a few missions to choose from, but basically they all look the same and most of them are dull and boring. You will be doing the same repetitive stuff over and over no matter which mission you choose to play. The missions are simple and easy to figure out. You will just be killing mobs of enemies and no real skill or strategic thinking is required.
The developer included Challenge Arenas to break the boredom, but alas, you will be fighting the same group of enemies that you encountered in the missions. You will be required to kill off a 100 enemies before times runs out, or kill more enemies than some of your friends. But this doesn’t make the game any more fun. In reality you are still killing off mobs, and the same ones for that matter.
The controls become monotonous in your hands. You just have to press the attack button all the time and hammer your opponents into oblivion. You don’t have any special moves or skills to learn. The game is based on mindless killing. Sometimes you will be rewarded with X-genes which give you special powers and your character will be even more powerful and your killing ability is enhanced. You can also find other hidden gems if you’re prepared to scavenge around.
The game was released as an action RPG but if it’s RPG you want, then you’ll be very disappointed. The game can be described as a straight forward action game at best with a few uninteresting twists. Even for an action game the boredom you encounter will leave you largely disappointed in the end.
