From a superficial glance, this seems to run into the same problem that DC Online did where you're forced to play side by side with the characters you'd rather be playing as. Hopefully there's something to this game.

So, is this a make your own X-Men game?  I don't recognize the three highlighted characters in this trailer.  I recognize Cyclops, Wolvering, Gambit, Mystique, Nightcrawler, etc... but the girl with the bandana, the guy in the football tee-shirt and the other one aren't familiar to me.

I hope this game is still early in development because, cosmetically, it doesn't look good.

Why does this game look and animate like SHIT? Oh, yeah, because SK is developing it.

This game has serious potential to be awesome. I really like the decision to go with the classic character looks, instead of some brooding, gritty "real world" look.

They're meant to be all-new mutants that you select from and grow into whatever you want them to be. You won't be playing as any of the trademark X-Men, but there'll be mutant points and costumes that can earn and level up with which'll essentially make you a clone of many of the well known cast; similar to how DCU has the ability for you to have your own character, but can still be meshed to strongly resemble your favourite. 
 
Kinda sucks why they don't just let you play as the actual X-Men, but it's justified with how the story progresses through your decisions and the morality choices to make associated with the Brotherhood and the X-Men.

Animation looks off, but it looks like it could be above average.

Phew, was worried it was another bad MMO.  Looks promising, now.

I'm not usually one to complain about graphics, but jesus, this looks like a PS2/Xbox era game. Secondly, where is the character customisation? The concept of playing as your own custom X-man through a story-driven game is really compelling.. playing as a 12 year old goth or a football jock is not.

@Abyssfull:  Thanks for that information.  The trailer really didn't give me any idea what was going on, but now I have a better grasp on things.  Could be cool.  We'll see.

graphics look pretty dated but if the story stuff pulls together as well as it seems it is this could be a great game. 
 
also, nightcrawler's costume was awesome.

Who is the girl supposed to be?

Also, I hope the graphics just look like shit because the game is actually played from a more zoomed out perspective like in MUA.

You know what? Forget this game; I could go for a new MUA.

It also doesn't help that instead you get shoehorned into 3 different pre-generated mutants.
 
How easy was this game to get right? Why not make a robust Mutant creator for your PC?

Well, at least it's not a limp First Class tie-in.

Bet that's coming though.

Definitely not a pretty looking game. Also, can I just get the Wolverine game from years back with X-Men characters? Longer? I don't want to make my own guy. :(

I want to have a bloody good time and fight big giant bosses!

This trailer was either too early....or that's it. Pretty underwhelming for the awesome franchise that freaking X-Men is......

This could be good but I'm really worried about the franchise effect on this game.

Sweet, seeing how the X-men Legends games won't work on the 360, this seems like a great fit to take that slot.

Looks fun, I hate X-men though, they're kinda lame except for Wolverine.
