STORY / GAMEPLAY
The main antagonist is Magneto, who plans to unleash an electromagnetic pulse on the Earth that will disrupt the magnetic fields and create havoc on the world's electrical systems ushering in a Dark Age for Earth's non-mutant population. With the promise of a mutant-run planet, the X-Men's most formidable foes join forces against Magneto.
You can choose between one of six X-Men members (e.g. Wolverine and Psylocke) or four of their enemies (for a total of ten selectable characters) and proceed to compete in a series of one-on-one matches, before battling Juggernaut and Magneto. Each character has its own abilities, such as super Jumps, the ability to roll away or towards an opponent after falling, the ability to pursue an opponent after performing a throwing attack for follow-up attacks etc. After selecting a character, the you can choose between "manual" or "automatic" blocking too. It also support a two-player combat (shared keyboard) and all of the fighters that were included in the arcade game. The game runs impressively in DOS!
GRAPHICS / SOUND
Technically, the game is impressive and the PC port looks great and offers great visuals comparable to the arcade game! The graphics are, without a doubt, the most impressive part of the game. Apart from being amazingly colorful and intricately detailed they're also superbly animated, and runs in 640x480 resolution with 256-colored scenes and flawless character animations. Another game that runs impressively in DOS!
The sound is also great, offering several in-game tunes along with sampled sound effects.
