The Fantasy Art of X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse - Movies
X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse is a real-time tactical combat game based on Marvel Comics superheroes and supervillains, in particular the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants. They race around the world to stop the villain Apocalypse from achieving unstoppable power and world conquest. The in-game artwork is colourful and comic-book like, and features various costumes for each playable character. However, the resolution is generally quite low, though probably good for a game of its time. Gameplay allows you to unlock fantasy artwork featuring superheroes, supervillains, and concept art, all of which is viewable in-game.
Each Act in X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse, as well as the epilogue, has a short CG animation featuring the key event.
Prologue: We are introduced to the idea of Xavier's X-Men and Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants -- normally archrivals -- working together. Here, they break into a high-security facility to rescue Professor X. The in-game action then moves on to Act 1 on the island of Genosha.
Act 2: While the heroes are away in Genosha, Apocalypse attacks the X-Mansion and in the process kidnaps Beast.
Act 3: The heroes follow the trail of the kidnapped Beast to The Savage Land.
Act 4: Apocalypse devastates New York with a nuclear device and makes it his new base of operations.
Act 5: Apocalypse's plans finally come to fruition. He has gathered the four mutants with Harmonic DNA and with Beast's help created a machine to magnify and absorb their power.
Epilogue: Apocalypse is defeated and the stolen power escapes him. The X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants part ways now that the threat is over.
