This weekend was big for Marvel (and Disney). Even though the Memorial Day Weekend isn’t finished, X-Men: Days of Future Past is dominating the post office. However, the story in the movie isn’t exactly on par with the official story in the comic. That is why fans can now see how the story really goes in the comic in the form of a video game.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, X-Men: Days of Future Past received a very favorable review along with a detailed explanation on its secret ending. As a movie, it was very good. Even certain writers here on The Inquisitr who favor the tradition of the source liked it. Nevertheless, it did have its differences.
According to a report by Kotaku, iOS gamers can now play through the original comic book storyline in the video game adaption by Glitchsoft. Just so you all know, this game is at a $2.99 price but has no in-app purchases. It is not free-to-play and it is not pay-to-win. It is pay-to-play, something Glitchsoft hopes will benefit them in the long run. Fortunately for them, this game just happens to be related to a major motion picture that came out about four days ago, so they should be a-okay.
As for differences, this game follows the storyline in the 1981 comic of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The setting is still a dystopian future where humans have enslaved mutant-kind with the Sentinel program, and the world is on the verge of a nuclear holocaust, but the only person who can project back to the past is Kitty Pryde.
The character they switched out from the movie from the comic was Senator Robert Kelly, who was replaced by Bolivar Trask in the movie. Mystique and her Brotherhood of Mutants are the ones responsible for the assassination which is the initial beginnings of the storyline.
Players switch between X-Men characters – Wolverine, Kitty, and Colossus (and more actually) – as the story unfolds. It starts out in the future where X-Men fight thugs and sentinels, and eventually ends in the past, when Kitty has to convince the X-Men to save the future.
So just from the description above, does the comic-book authentic X-Men: Days of Future Past sound like a game worth downloading and playing? If you give it a go, let us know what you think in the comments below.
