X-Men Legends is an action role-playing Video Game developed by Raven Software and published by Activision. It was released on the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox consoles in the fall of 2004. Barking Lizards Technologies developed the N-Gage port of the game, which was released in early 2005. Players can play as one of fifteen X-Men characters, with the ability to switch between four computer- or human-controlled characters at any time.

X-Men Legends is not set in any particular Marvel Comics universe. It follows Alison Crestmere, a young mutant who has the ability to summon and control volcanic activity. As Alison is taught to control her powers at the X-Mansion, the X-Men are sent on several missions. Eventually the X-Men learn of Magneto's plan to cover the Earth in darkness from his base on Asteroid M.

X-Men Legends received generally positive reviews from critics. The Xbox version was the best received, garnering aggregate scores of 83% and 82/100 on the review aggregating websites GameRankings and Metacritic respectively. Reviewers praised Raven's variation on cel-shaded graphics. Due to the success of the game a sequel was made, X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse.

NPC CharactersEdit



Alison Crestmere (Magma), a mutant on the verge of discovering her powers, is abducted by Blob and Mystique. Wolverine witnesses this abduction and goes on to find them, he soon teams up with Cyclops in order to rescue Alison. After battling Mystique and Blob and saving Alison, all three characters safely escape in the X Jet. Alison is brought to the Xavier Institute of Gifted Youngsters, where she finds out more about the X-Men and the students, all the while exploring her newly discovered powers with the help of Professor Charles Xavier. The X Men continue to explore leads that might indicate why Mystique and the Brotherhood of Mutants are even interested in Alison. At the same time, they attempt to combat both the Brotherhood, who save their leader, Magneto, from his prison and the growing number of Sentinels. The drama culminates in a number of showdowns on Asteroid M with both Magneto and the Master Mold.
