Games TM - - RETRO -

The scrolling fighter is rep­re­sented by lots of great su­per­hero en­tries, but this is per­haps the best. it’s mainly notable for its gi­gan­tic ar­cade cab, which can host up to six play­ers at once and uses two mon­i­tors (the sec­ond is in the cabi­net be­low and re­flected up­wards) to cre­ate an im­pres­sive panoramic view to host all the ac­tion, but smaller two and four-player ver­sions were also made. The avail­able X-men in­clude favourites like Wolver­ine, storm and Nightcrawler and all of them have unique mu­tant pow­ers in ad­di­tion to their stan­dard at­tacks. The ros­ter of en­e­mies you fight against is equally im­pres­sive and in­cludes the likes of Jug­ger­naut, mys­tique and mag­neto. While a high def­i­ni­tion re­make of the game was cre­ated by back­bone En­ter­tain­ment in 2010, it’s since been delisted and is no longer avail­able to buy, mean­ing you’ll have to visit lo­ca­tions like ar­cade club to ex­pe­ri­ence it in its full glory.
