Z-Axis used to work on Acclaim's Dave Mirra BMX games until Activision bought them out. You might assume that they'd set them to work on a new Mat Hoffman BMX title, but no - they're hard at work on X-Men 3.

Three is the magic number here, as a trio of superheroes are playable - Iceman, Nightcrawler and Captain Sideburns (Wolverine). Iceman's levels are set against the clock, with the onus on making ice bridges, ice slides and so on to get through a level as quickly as possible. He can also lob projectiles and summon fatal hailstorms. Naturally.

Nightcrawler's bits take inspiration from Prince of Persia, with lots of acrobatic skills coming into play. The blue mutant has got a unique trick up his sleeve though - the ability to 'bamf' (read: teleport) all over the place. How this'll work during battles and such is unclear, but we guess that you'll just hit a button to vanish and reappear somewhere not too far away. We sincerely hope that this trick can be used to rack up huge combos.

This leaves Wolverine to supply the heavy-handed combat with something that Activision are calling a 'Fury Mode'. There's also a 'Mutant Evolution System' (the ability to upgrade skills) and 'Hyberboard Cut-scenes' to look forward to. Their marketing team must have been put into overdrive.

Rather than follow the plot of the film, the story is penned by comic book writer Chris Claremont and explains what happens in the run up to its silver-screen daddy.

It's due out on absolutely everything - even GameCube, as these details are from NGC - this spring. Around the same time as the movie, no doubt.

Edit: Oh and here's the link:

Kind of reminds me how they made the Riddick game tie into the first film. Loved that.
 
the game doesent sound to good, since there is only 3 playable characters.
 
Jesus Christ there's doubters and complainers on every end! There are too many character or not enough. Give me a break. This game takes place between the events of 2 & 3 so I guess we'll find out what happens to Nightcrawler which is also probably why he's a focal point of the game. X-Axis has always done a good job and you know the other characters will be there for support of some kind.
 
That sounds like it might quite good
 
I still dont get why they say this is based off the Movie when this is a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT Story Line then the Movie
 
were is storm,colossus,cyclops,kitty or beast??
 
I'm sure it's just a working title. You know Riddick, Doom, the original Halo, all had only 1 playable character. Halo 2 had 2 playable characters and it was worse than part 1. I understand X-Men is a team but not every member should get focused on in each film or game. Sometimes the other characters have to step back from the light, take a break, or step up. If each character is developed in the game the right way and the missions are long and the details are polished it will be an awesome game.

Because it is a prequel to the film. Did you actually read the 1st post in this thread?

Well, in the Matrix video game you couldn't play as ANY of the main characters from the film and that game was still kick ass.
 
Yeah, hopefully you can do some bullet time stuff, when you are Nightcrawler and are teleporting everywhere. Like the White House scene
 
Sounds awesome! I was hoping to play Storm, but I love Icey, Nighty, and Wolvie, so cool :p

Yes but they STILL advertise it as "Based On The Movie" when it should be just "A Prequel To The Upcoming Movie"

All you're doing is nitpicking and you know it. It's based on the movieverse, deal with it.
 
colosus is IN it and helps nightcrawler but he isn't playable.
 
well atleast the came out with a game, im still gonna try it either way.

The March issue also comes with a 100-page tips book, packed with complete solutions for Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers and Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows, as well as an A-Z of tips for the greatest games available on the Xbox.

Hmm... I think they should release it a little before the movie... like even a month, haha. If its a prequel, it should be given enough time to be played before the raging fans, such as ourselves, go to see the movie at the midnight showing.

It sounds like a great idea. I'm not sure about the timed parts - They make me nervous, haha. But I am glad to see more than just Wolverine. Especially Nightcrawler. I just hope he doesn't bite the dust.

Also, I hope that it ties in with the realistic theme of the X-movies.

Too bad we can't play as Storm - I feel your pain, Ant.
 
Why of all people Iceman? I can understand Wolverine and even Nightcrawler but Iceman is so random to me..
