Do you have a Teen that is totally addicted to his Wii, Playstation3 or maybe the X-Box? Boy do I have a game for you. This brand new X-Men Destiny game was just released and my Teen hasn’t stopped playing it since.
At first he kind of pulled his nose up and told me “Mom, you know I won’t like this game, right…?”… well, his attitude quickly changed the fist thing he told me was “wow, this game isn’t anything like I thought it would be”. He thought it would be a one on one game like the old games, instead it is a Role Playing game and you play the character.
There are three characters to choose and you can choose your own powers; you unlock more combinations and powers the further along you go in the game. You also choose between good and evil. You play against the computer, this is not an online game where other players can join in. This game is for one player only.
The graphics for the Playstation3 game that we tested are really great compared to the older versions that we all know about. The characters look like real people it’s just amazing how technology has progressed over the years.
Overall a fun game for your Teen, especially if you are concerned with online play, this game would be great. Lots of action, lots of assignments to finish the job. This game is rated T for Teen.
