Lately my little girl has been very interested in the X-Men. She loves the movies and is currently reading some of my trade paperbacks. She has a ton of questions about the muties, too. When I asked her if she'd like to play the game, her answer was a solid, "Yes!"
And she loves it.
I kind of figured that was a given, since it is essentially a role-playing game with the player in the role of a number of different mutant heroes. (She likes Storm and Jean Grey.) Playing the game with her is, admittedly, even more fun than playing solo. She hasn't played too many co-op games with me because she enjoys kicking my butt more than kicking someone else's butt, but she is learning. Surprisingly, the game holds up, too.
Once we're done we're moving on to the sequel. From there? Perhaps Marvel Ultimate Alliance or the similar Justice League game. (She actually played that a bit about two years ago and liked it, so revisiting it may be in order.) In the meantime, though, I'm going to milk this new found love of the X-Men for all it is worth.
