X-Men The Movie images

X-Men The Movie images

Activision released a bunch of images from the PS2, Xbox and X360 versions of X-Men The Official Movie Game, together with boxarts for each version. I must admit that the X360 version really isn't exactly jaw-dropping, but the game should be popular within the fans community - as usual, with Marvel-games.

Lol Xbox version looks almost better than the 360 version!? I mean mayby the 360 version has more light effects but the Xbox version looks sharper and more ''cleaner''.

No seriously, look at Wolverine in the right screens. His face looks way better in the Xbox screenhot, also his clothing looks way sharper and more detailed. But you're right the rest of the 360 pics look way better, i think the right screens of the Xbox and 360 versions are switched.

NO. Seriously. We know the X360 version looks bad for what it is, but not THAT bad, and the Xbox version doesn't look THAT good. I consider you take Jollipop's recommendation.

Looks like they used the same bloom effects thats killing the next-gen in the 360 version. Personally I like the nightcrawler from the PS2 version more than the 360 one. Wolverine on the 360 looks like a ghost... Honestly none of them impress me. But I'll save final judgement for the videos.

Wow, if I worked for Activision I'd have never released that 3rd Xbox 360 picture.

I fail to see anything my good old Xbox could NOT pull about this game.

Come on did you even look at that 3rd Xbox 360 picture? And then at the 3rd one form the Xbox? I tell you the 3rd picture listed under Xbox 360 is one of the Xbox version, and the 3rd one listed under Xbox is a Xbox 360 screen. Manager just put the wrong picture in the wrong list.

lol, care to explain how the Xbox can do 720p resolution? I guess you are now joking.
Commented on 2006-03-24 22:43:31
The Xbox CAN DO 720p but not in this game of course. But in games like the latest Hulk game (ultimate destr?).

But I find it funny that the xbox1 and 360 screenshots are actual framebuffer grabs (per pixel information apart from JPG artifacts) but the PS2 screens are scaled down from high res development screenshots (at least #1 and #3 are), as per usual for faked PR screens.

Way to touch up the PS2 screens and give them amazing supersampling. I'm sure its for the best, otherwise the PS2 fanboys would torch their offices for making the PS2 look the worst of the three, because we all know Shadow of the Colossus looks exactly like the hires screenshots released for last years E3, not.

But admittedly the 360 version looks like poo.. just another port job with no justification being released for a next-gen platform. Nice skyline! I bet they are filling almost 64MB of the total 512MB available.

*shrugs* Lets see some gameplay before we write it off.

Though i have to admit, the first x360 shot looks a bit balls really. the draw distance is terrible, especially when compared to, say, GRAW.
Commented on 2006-03-24 23:37:39
Hmm well then i guess Wolverine simplyt looks way better in the Xbox version than in the 360 version. :P And by the way look at the second 360 screen, draw distance is fine.

The Xbox 1 version of Wolverine looks so much better b/c it's been photoshopped
Commented on 2006-03-25 12:32:31
That is just looks horrible and no I don't think the xbox version looks better.
Commented on 2006-03-25 12:45:51
If these pic are a true indication of the game then all versions look below par.
Has film licence dirge written all over it.

I'm with you Dukemaster.

The Xbox's models have more detail on them than the 360's models do. The 360's models' clothing is washed out, while the Xbox models' clothing is crisp.

They're using the same models and textures in both versions of the game - I mean honestly, do you think they'd make diffrent and better textures for a slower machine? I imagine its much the same as THAW was - the higher resolution just emphasized how awful the textures were.

With that said, I think the game - no matter which version - looks awful.

X3: The last Stand will be the movie. I wonder if Iceman will be able to portray his ice beam/slide talents in the upcoming movie.

From the looks of this game, its just about 50/50. Not too great and not too shabby either. Well I'll have my fingers crossed for now because I loved the Marvel X-Men Universe (including the movies)

Note: I wonder how many of you liked Jean Grey's new outfit (the red one) in the movie as she joins the brotherhood of mutants (a while I hope). And I wonder If they will show a pyrotechnique illusion of the Phoenix itself manifesting into a firebird cause the trailer doesn't show much (I'm thankful for that). ^_^;

i think the game looks great for a ps2 or xbox game. it doesn't look any different on the 360. thats not acceptable unless there is a whole LOT of additional content. even in that case, its still not acceptable really. it just adds credence to the school of thought that there was no need for a new generation of consoles yet.
