Meet the X-Men.
You're a cyborg created for maximum damage in minimal time. Your target? The uncanny band of super heroes, the X-Men! The diabolical duo of X-Men arch enemy, Apocalypse, and a mysterious ally have clones the X-Men into a mindless mutant militia with the ultimate goal of world domination. Magneto, while no friend of the X-Men, is determined to thwart Apocalypse's plans. He wants payback and you are his weapon. You now have forearms that morph into a dazzling array of weapons. It's a small world, but somebody has to rule it- you got the guts?

This is war. Don't be fooled, these are not the friends you once knew, nor are they human. You must annihilate the X-Men or lose the battle forever.

Archangel.
Archangel has metallic wings from which he shoots metal feathers. Might as well give up on using those rockets as his wings make very good shields, too.

Beast.
Beast has no equal when it comes to gymnastic ability. While he's bounding after you, you gotta avoid his flying fists and Earth-shattering shock wave punch- all at the same time he's dodging your favorite weapons!

Bishop.
Bishop enjoys shooting big guns. he also has the ability to fire deadly energy from his bare hands. You'd better find something to hide behind when Bishop's around. His invulnerability to energy weapons makes killing him that much more difficult.

Cannonball.
Cannonball's ability to fly with an indestructible blast shield surrounding him means that you'd better get real good at running. Even when he's not flying, you don't want to let this one get too close.

Cyclops.
Cyclops only has to open his eye to produce a dangerously accurate laser beam. But look out is you dodge his laser, 'cause this sucker ricochets right back atcha.

Gambit.
Gambit has the ability to charge static objects with kinetic energy, causing the object to explode on impact. He is also an expert at close combat using his staff.

Iceman.
Iceman mercilessly throws short bursts of small ice shards, and look out for his super ice blast that will freeze you, allowing him to move in and attack while you're helpless.

Phoenix.
Phoenix's telepathic and telekinetic abilities make her one dangerous opponent. In between dodging telekinetic projectiles and her attempts to lift you up with her mind, you are assaulted with an indefensible psychic crunch.

Psylocke.
Psylocke is a telepath with an uncanny ability for the martial arts. She also has her psychic blade. This is a concentrated psychic attack taking the form of a blade appearing from her wrist.

Rogue.
Rogue's ability to fly, her superhuman strength and resistance to injury make her one formidable foe. She'll punch you into next week if you let her.

Storm.
Storm's ability to control the weather wreaks havoc with your fragile demeanor. She can not only throw you around with gusts of wind, but lightning is also at her command.

Wolverine.
Wolverine has retractable claws which along with unparalleled perseverance make a scary combination. His healing factor plays a major part in his favorite activity- hunting you down!

This is not the game of Quake you once knew.

  • You must not only thwart Apocalypse's plans, you must destroy them.
  • Only the strong will survive the 18 level onslaught.
  • Battle 12 of the evil cloned X-Men leaving them licking their wounds.
  • Formidable weapons make you a force to be reckoned with.

Special bonus: Limited Edition X-Men comic book included.
