A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The object is to find a cure for the viral bomb that was set off inside your body. They way to do it is to maim the enemy.
Violence & Scariness
Stabbing the enemy is how you get from level to level. No one is ever given the chance to simply surrender. Some of the main bosses are a bit hardcore, for example Sabretooth is a pretty intense villain.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is simply a hack-and-slash that is for teens despite the connection to the X-Men.
Is It Any Good?
The combat can be very intense, and there are usually multiple enemies involved. The fights are a little graphic in terms of blood, but the sounds of slashing claws and enemies groaning as they die really adds to the realism, and may alarm sensitive kids. In addition, stealth mode is designed to reward you for killing someone in silence. Items called Dog Tags are awarded for silent kills and power up your special combo moves.
The boss battles are likely to be the favorite part of the game for most teens -- this is where they get to take on many of the cool foes from the comics. Each boss has their own weakness for players to figure out. It may take a few times to get through it, but it can be done, and it feels like a solid and satisfying end to each level.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
