*********************     II. INTRODUCTION    ************************
**********************************************************************

Well, it's another X-Men game from Activision.  This time around, they have
implemented 3-dimensions to their fighting game engine and it shows this
time!  We have most of the character returning (sans Spidey and Xavier) plus
some new characters that really do add to the game with different styles
and combos.

I made this guide/movelist to encompass the specials and supers and to be used
as a general reference guide for the game mechanics.  For combos, please
see my other document (X-Men Next Dimension Combo List).

publisher:  Activision
rated:      TEEN
media :     DVD-ROM
release:    10-16-2002
format:     PS2, GC, XB

This game has several modes of play:

STORY - Fight a preset story with fixed character selections
ARCADE - Fight 9 battles of 3 rounds and the final match is 7 rounds
VERSUS - Human head-to-head competition
SURVIVAL - how far can you go?
PRACTICE - multiple options to focus your skills

==========================
= Terms and definitions: =
==========================

knockdown    when the opponent hits the ground hard and either bounce or are
             slow to recover.  Great opportunity for follow up attacks!

stuns        momentarily causes the enemy to keel over in a "stun" animation.
             Follow up with any attack for a guaranteed hit, but must be done
             quickly or they will recover.

air seek     special kind of attack that sends the opponent flying very high
             and gives you the opportunity to chase after them with an aerial
             combo or even a super combo!

juggles      any attack that causes the enemy to fly into the air, but not an
             AIR SEEK.  However, the enemy cannot block so they are still open
             to attack!

projectile   an attack that produces a ranged damage effect, most likely in the
             form of a missile or beam.  I noted moves that produce these
             effects to help differentiate from non-projectile moves.

NOTE:
Some of the names are either changed (for sake of brevity) or ones I made up
myself because they weren't listed.  Try the moves for yourself to see what
they do.  That's why I tried to note the important attacks with the above
mentioned characteristics.

I've listed damages and hits to combos, supers and throws to give you an idea
of
what things are worth doing.  All damages were performed against an AVERAGE
TOUGHNESS fighter (refer to "VII. CHARACTER ANALYSIS" for more details)
Only the MAX hits/damages were recorded so not all hits may get in all the
time.

If you need to find a character quickly, use the SEARCH function of your word
processor and type in the name of the character.
EX:  In MS Word, hit Ctrl-F.  Type in the name.  Hit return until you find it.

If you want combos, check my COMBO FAQ.

**********************************************************************
*********************       V. STAGES        *************************
**********************************************************************
The best way I've figured out to do the transitions between areas within
a stage is by either doing an air seek combo at the very edge or any
knockdown attack or combo that sends the opponent flying across the room.

I'm describing the transitions in each stage.  Every stage has breakable
objects but I noted those with pillars/columns because some characters
have special throws when near them.

Phoenix in "Phoenix vs Bastion".

UNLOCK EVERYTHING CODE:
<>
at the main menu hold L1 and press right right left left down up circle.
You will hear a funny noise ("Shway!") that will tell you did it right.

KNOWN BUGS/GLITCHES:
--------------------
~GAMEPLAY~
Nightcrawler - cancelling his T S attack into the Level 4 super then doing
S X O T will freeze the opponent's controls and not end the super.  Time will
continue to run down and Nightcrawler cannot build up any more super meter.
Match will ONLY end by time or if sufficient damage is dealt.

Bishop - doing the b+R1 then doing a standing O and hitting the target at his
head level will cause the opponent to be stuck frozen in mid-air.  Bishop
cannot effect the enemy anymore.  The enemy will still recover red-bar health
in this state, so make sure you have more life and win by time.  Works against
everyone EXCEPT Blob (since he's unthrowable by Bishop).

Rogue - air throw on the Subway Station level causes her opponents to fall very
slowly, giving her time to do another combo on them.  This can be abused into
a veritable extended combo that will more than likely kill the opponent.
<>

Mystique, Havok, Toad - occasionally during their air throws, they will stay
stuck in mid-air doing their throw animation.  Only an attack from the enemy
will dislodge them.  Happens at random.

Sabretooth - doing a b+R1 on an opponent close to the wall, the opponent will
slide back towards the wall AFTER the throw.

Gambit - after the first round of fighting, Gambit will not be able to move or
defend for the first second of the next match!  There is nothing he can do
about this.  Just hope your opponent doesn't do a very long combo...

Anyone - Sometimes, after a perfectly timed air seek jump, the character misses
the enemy for some strange reason.  Occurs more often if too close to the wall.

~VISUAL~
Mystique - her Level 4 scope-sight only appears once for every stage you're on.
Even if you fight different people on the same stage, the scope will not appear
again until the stage changes.

Apocalypse's Tomb (Room 2) - after breaking the floor once before, there will
be a large black hole.  Coming back here again, you can be thrown/knocked back
onto the dark hole and not fall!  Works with Toad.  Apparently, you cannot go
back to the Crypt Room once you've been there once.

Sentinel A - during his winning cutscene after each match, he punches the
camera and the glass breaks.  However, after he does it once for a stage,
the glass break sequence will not happen again even though he still punches
the camera.

Forge - sometimes his beam attacks are invisible.  They still hit, but damned
if i can see them.  Happens most frequently on Savage Land stage - pool area.

Any stage - sometimes, it is possible to hit an opponent into a wall and they
will be trapped.  I've experienced this on numerous occassions on various
levels.

DMG % = Percentage of damage the character takes from attacks

Group I - since these characters have damage reduction FOR EVERY HIT, try to
limit the number of hits you do on them, as the more hits will equal less
successive damage.  Keep in mind when you do a multi-hitting super against
these characters will do MUCH LESS damage than it would on a baseline
character.

Group II - baseline toughness, so it doesn't matter on the number of hits in
a combo.  Any combo that connects on them will suffice.

Group III - since these characters take damage poorly, increase your # of hits
since each hit will generate more damage than on a baseline character.  As long
as it does damage OR has lots of hits will work well against them.

I also believe the full life bar for EVERYONE is 30,000 points.  This
makes sense since most Level 4 supers do around 15,000 damage and
takes off HALF the life bar on most people!!!  (thus any combo that does more
than 30,000 dmg is a full life combo)

Any help would be greatly appreciated for any missing unique combos/
specials/supers for the characters.  Plus if you see a mistake,
let me know!

If you do submit a combo, could you please include the damage and hits

you got against Cyclops.  It's fine if you don't, but then I'll
have to check it myself and if I can't do it successfully with a high
percentage of success, then I won't include it unless it's extremely
unique or special (EX: does 40000 dmg against Blob!) then I'll put it
in the combo list.

FUTURE UPDATES:
- which series each suit is from (been out of comics for last few years)
- on the lookout for more bugs/glitches/CPU double standards

THINGS TO LOOK INTO:
D.Phoenix has 2 moves listed, yet don't seem to work:
  f+T T

now the only thing that they keep a record of is your Survival wins.  No
more individual character usage and win ratios.  Oh well...

**********************************************************************
*********************     XI. MY COMPLAINTS    ***********************
**********************************************************************
Well, no game is really perfect and this one is no exception.  Here's a list of
problems that I found with it that the player should be made aware of.  Some
of them are very peculiar so don't surprised if you're noticing certain strange
things happening in your game...  Now these are the problems that I've
experienced, so they may not affect you.  However, I think a game can only get
better IF it receives a certain amount of criticism.  That way, future products
will improve upon past mistakes.  It's the only way for some games to grow and
be successful.  If you don't like to read about complaints or constructive
whining, then don't read any further...

///////////////////////
----------------------/
CPU DOUBLE STANDARDS: /
----------------------/

Yes, the computer can play with a different set of rules from you, so be aware.
And yes, they give the CPU the advantage.  About the only thing going against
the CPU is its predictability in combo strings.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
- can auto-track fairly well during attacks/combos -
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
One example is Gambit's qcb+S (he stabs with his staff quickly).  Jumping over
this against the CPU causes Gambit's staff to gain tracking and he will follow
you until you land, then gets the free attack on you because you also can't
block the right direction in mid-air during a jump.  Suck's doesn't it?  Now,
should you do this, all you will end up is sucking damage as Gambit is stuck
stabbing at nothing while the CPU is behind you...  Another incident was when
Mystique did her drill sweep (b,f+X) and I saw her doing it so I jumped over
her.  I was very surprised as her drill went to my previous position THEN
it flew to my current position hitting me before I even landed.  The moral
of the story:  YOU CAN'T OUTMANEUVER THE CPU.  IF IT WANTS TO HIT YOU, IT
WILL!!!

-----------------------------------
- has the reflexes of an electron -
-----------------------------------
Not much that can be done about this since this is prevalent in 99% of all
fighting games.  No matter how good a human is, the CPU set on the right
mode, will always demolish a human because a machine won't make a mistake
or get nervous or forget the timing on a move.


////////////////
---------------/
GAME GLITCHES: /
---------------/

Yes, they can be fun to do but they are pretty cheap at times and downright
cheesy if you're going up against another human doing them.  I'm sorry,
but I don't prescribe to the theory that if its in the game, its fair.
A freeze glitch just isn't cool cuz it's inescapable and you have no
choice but to sit there and await for death...  LAME!!!!

----------------------------
- Gambit's starting freeze -
----------------------------
I don't know why or how this happens, but it does.  This is only a problem
in Arcade mode since the glitch kicks in AFTER one round of combat has
completed.  The freeze lasts for about one second, but considering your
enemy most likely has some super meter by now and is itching to dish out
some payback, you're in deep doo-doo.  Only rememdy I see is holding back
and hoping you block in time.  If you're on EXPERT mode, forget it - you
pretty much said "HIT ME WITH YOUR FIRST COMBO!!!" and they will oblige.

-------------------------
- Bishop's throw glitch -
-------------------------
It's a freeze glitch.  It sucks if it happens to you.  No escape except by
clock running down. If someone is doing this to you, hit them.  It's your
only recourse.

------------------------------
- Nightcrawler's Lv.4 glitch -
------------------------------
It's a freeze glitch.  It sucks if it happens to you.  No escape except by
clock running down OR if your opponent is gracious enough to kill your frozen
hide. If someone is doing this to you, hit them.  It's your only recourse.

----------------------------
- Rogue's air throw glitch -
----------------------------
Ok, it's not a freeze glitch (thank GOD!) but it's just as bad cuz it lets
Rogue do a near infinite on the poor sucker who gets trapped in it.  At least
it only works in the Morlock Sewers - Subway portion of the level.  If someone
is doing this to you, hit their controller so they miss their timing on the
air seek...  Hey, fight cheese with more cheese!

---------------------------------
- walls interfering with combos -
---------------------------------
You'd think walls are great for trapping some sucker and getting lots of
free hits in, but NOOOOO!!!!  Instead it causes your timing to be off and
they have chances for escape, plus the wall adds  which means you can
forget any of your extended combos on the ground.  After two bounces off the
wall the opponent automatically falls to the ground but is too fast for a
knockdown or ground combo to capitalize.  Against bigger characters, its not
as bad, since they take longer to fall down, and are still open for more hits.

In the air, you will most likely face the wrong direction resulting in a
completely missed air combo. The moral of this story:  DO NOT DO COMBOS INTO
THE WALLS!!!

---------------------------
- throws resetting damage -
---------------------------
Now I think this is just plain CHEESY!!!  Not only are throws unescapable once
you're grabbed, but it now resets the damage counter.  What this means is that
if you get thrown and are stuck in a position where you cannot defend yourself
i.e. a knockdown or bounce, and if your opponent can follow up with another
attack, the damage will be at MAX damage.  Thus, some of the most devastating
combos involve normal throws linked into supers.

////////////////////
-------------------/
TECHNICAL ISSUES:  /
-------------------/

---------------------------------
- Autosave...  What's autosave? -
---------------------------------
Nothing worse than getting 50 wins in Survival mode, but forgetting to go
to the OPTIONS menu then MEMORY CARD and then SAVE DATA then confirm that
you want to save 2 more times...  Wow!  That's a lot of steps to take just
to save.  Why is there no Auto-Save feature or option when you quit/complete
a mode like in most other fighting games???  It's just another hassle you
have to remember to do that is really unnecessary if you ask me.

Plus on a side note, in the LOAD DATA option, there is no confirmation - it
just does it, which sucked cuz I hit it once when I tapped down too many times
and then accidentally loaded my old data, erasing my newly earned Survival
records.  *sniff* No way in HELL I'm gonna do Sentinel B all over again!!!

---------------------------
- Loooooong Loading Times -
---------------------------
Yikes!  I guess its just the architecture of the PS2 and its limited RAM, but
this game can take a while to load.  I'm not kidding!!!  I've clocked a new
Stage loading is roughly 30 seconds, and a new character-same stage loading is
roughly 7 seconds (not too bad).  Going back to the main menu has a load time
of
about 14 seconds.

---------------------------------------
- Data Loading on Startup Unnecessary -
---------------------------------------
Why does this game NEED to confirm a data load every time you start up the
game?
What purpose does this serve other than to delay your gaming?  I know this
sounds anal, but it still does detract from the enjoyment of the game just a
little.  I have never played a fighting game before where I had to tell it to
"load the game data".  It's either on the Memory card or it isn't...

-------------------------------
- Game Controls Too Sensitive -
-------------------------------
I bring this up because I can say that I'm a veteran of many Street Fighter
games and this game has one glaring problem in that the sensitivity to moves
is VERY precise, especially on qcf and qcb motions.  In the Capcom games (where
the art of QCF was honed to an artform) they give you some leeway and even room
to buffer the move and still expect it to execute.  Not necessarily in this
game.  Some characters like Rogue can, because her move buffer seems to be
much greater than Havok's.  This can be seen during a normal game and my
numerous attempts to fire out a plasma beam (qcf+S) but instead I get jabs.  On
the other hand with Rogue, I have no problems doing her uppercut (qcf+S).
When I'm in doubt I just do a HCF (half-circle forward) instead of a QCF.  This
way pretty much guarantees me success and reduces the chances for error.

Plus another bad thing about the control sensitivity is in flying.
Sometimes, when I jump up to do a special air-only attack, I instead start
to fly (I never even hit the L2 button, just jumped up).  Very  dangerous
considering you just did something you weren't ready for and you can't block
either, and must now quickly get down without dying.  Consistent problem
for flyers (Storm, Phoenix, Magneto, Rogue, Dark Phoenix, Sentinel B),
which really sucks because they have combo starters from the air that are
very good because they are hard to counter.  Since I have a 80% of flying by
mistake, I never risk doing those moves.  What a pity!!!

------------------------------------------
- Secrets take too long to unlock FAIRLY -
------------------------------------------
3rd costumes:  requires 14.52 hours  (not as easy as it sounds)
4th costumes:  requires 10 hours     (not as easy as it sounds)
Dark Phoenix:  depends on your skill and luck

Yes, these numbers are estimations but based on how the game plays (and loads)
these figures aren't too far off the mark. THERE IS A MASTER UNLOCK CODE, but
that's just too easy.  Items given have no value than it would if it was
earned fairly.  Goodies should take "some" skill and patience to unlock but
not so ridiculously arduous as this because I do try to have a life outside
of gaming...

Here's the the math...

TO GET THE 3RD COSTUME, YOU NEED TO BEAT ARCADE ON EXPERT WITH THAT CHARACTER:
  Arcade mode has 9 rounds of 2 fights and the 10th round has 4 fights =
    (9 x 2 = 18) + 4 = 22 fights/character
  worst case you take 99 seconds to beat a fight
    22 x 99 = 2178 seconds -> 36 minutes 18 seconds/character
***assuming no continues and not including loading times between fights***

  2178 seconds/character x 24 characters = 52272 seconds for all 24 characters.
  52272 seconds -> 871.2 minutes
  871.2 minutes -> 14.52 hours for all 24 characters

TO GET 4TH COSTUME, YOU NEED AT LEAST 30 WINS IN SURVIVAL WITH THAT CHARACTER:
  30 fights and worst case takes 50 seconds/fight = 1500 seconds/character
  1500 seconds -> 25 minutes (not including loading times after each fight)
  25 minutes/character x 24 characters = 600 minutes

600 minutes -> 10 hours for all 24 characters!!!!

***not including loading times after each fight***

  note: getting 30 wins in Survival is very difficult, as the damage taken is
  carried over to the next round with some life given back due to how fast you
  win.  Plus the CPU starts off easy, but then slowly gets harder and harder.

TO UNLOCK DARK PHOENIX, GET A PERFECT AGAINST BASTION WITH PHOENIX:
Easier said than done...  This really depends on your skill and luck.  I was
not able to do this (trust me, i tried), so I resorted to the unlock code
just to get one character...  yes, I hate doing it but I had run out of
time and patience.




EXCELSIOR!  Good Luck True Believers!
