In 2004, Activision and the crew at Raven released one of the best games based on any comic book property.  It bought the X-Men mythos into the realm of roleplaying, and it won over comic book fanboys everywhere.  A year later, Activision granted us a sequel that not only added more of what the original awesome, but it addressed the complaints that players had about the first one, mainly the uselessness of some characters, and parts of the game where players were forced to fight solo.  With over a dozen characters, (some of which are hidden) unlockable costumes, online multiplayer, and just about every facet of the X-universe a gamer can think of, this is a Marvel fan’s dream come true…at least until Marvel Ultimate Alliance arrives this fall.
