I finished playing the game a while ago, and i was really dissapointed with the explaination that they gave for Nightcrawler's absence from the movie.
This was the main reason i played the game, and they really let me down. The explaination basically was that he is too much of a peaceful person to continue his life as an x-man. What is that all about? WEAK
anybody else have an opinion on this, or maybe I am misunderstanding whats going on.
I was kinda hoping for a really killer video game, and the story would just be an amazing experience where we knew how nightcrawler felt, and there would be a real reason for his leaving, i feel like it was a very weak cop out.
I did enjoy the game, I'm just a little disappointed in the Nightcrawler story.
 
Wha???His peace should be what would make him want to fight so the brotherhood can stop this madness....That is so stupid!!!!:eek::down

I though hed get cured.

yeah its weak,
i tought the games is kinda crappy WAAAAAY too repitiive, cheap cutscenes and old graphics, story has more plotholes than any other story (way to go zak penn) i just tought the games is bad thats all and especially its coming from activision (spiderman 2, call of duty 2) its a big let down.
 
I wouldn't worry about the explanations provided via the video game. I don't think too many people will be taking it as a valid bridge between X2 and X3.
 
All i know is that nightcrawler was never an x men therefore the unfortunate absense is seamless imo and he couldve went back to abandoned church dwelling. Thats all i need.
 
How is it a weak explanation? It makes perfect sense, given how he's been portrayed in this franchise, and it allows you to theorize what happened to him, rather than shoving an explanation down your throat. Did he become a priest? Did he right wrongs? Become a hermit? Did he return to the X-Men? A combination of those fates?
 
They should just say he's "with allies in Scotland" or something. It doesn't make sense to say what they (apparently) said in the game because it completely changes his character from the comics. Nightcrawler always was thoroughly in line and with understanding of the goals and means of people like Professor X and Storm.
 
i have always liked how TAS handled nightcrawler

in the episodes he wasn't in he was back in germany trying to become a monk or something, that would have worked just fine for me, if they where to use that as an excuse
