Born a thief in Cairo, this windrider grew to be worshipped as a goddess in her native Kenya. She is a mutant, like the creatures from M.U.S.C.L.E., and stars in a game that is hated and feared by the public.

I always wondered why companies even bothered to get a license for comic books and movies when they're just going to make a crappy game that has nothing to do with them anyway. In this piece of trash, you control a group of children in cardboard robot costumes. The game claims they're the X-men, but since none of them seem to exhibit any of the X-men's powers, you can't be sure. The one that's supposed to be Wolverine doesn't even have claws. "Kick! Kick! Hop! I'm Wolverine, bub!" I think the only super power of his that was programmed in was his keen sense of smell. This is a very appliable skill when you're fighting the various toasters and typewriters in the game.

Trust me, though, I don't just hate this game since it defiles the X-men. The X-men are stupid enough to defile themselves. I hate this game because it's a bad game. Two X-men at a time waddle through armies of small mechanical things that look like they were made out of trash cans and Speak and Spells. The computer controls one of them, but you can count on them either getting stuck in a corner or repeatedly running into the same enemy until they die. Needless to say, they're about as much help as Gilligan. You'll be happy when they're gone.

If this game had digitized voices, you can bet you'd be hearing Wolverine and Cyclops here explaining their powers to one another for the benefit of the player.

Graphics: 0 I wouldn't have known those ugly things were the X-Men unless you told me, and I still don't believe it.
Fun: 0 I can list a few of things that are less fun than this game, but most of them end in death. Mutants are hated and feared with good reason: They star in one of the worst video games of all time.
Super Powers: 8 This cartridge is laced with Adamantium, the strongest metal known. This, along with its mutant healing factor make it very hard to destroy. It's the best it is at what it does, bub. And it sucks.
