The Uncanny X-Men is the first video game based on Marvel Comics’ iconic mutants and it’s generally considered to be a gigantic garbage fire. Released in 1989 and developed by a mystery studio believed to be either Bothtec or Pixel, this allegedly atrocious NES excrement is the colossal misstep on the path towards the killer Konami beat ’em up, but is it really as bad as it’s claimed to be? Find out on the long overdue return of the LJN Defender! Thanks for watching:)

The LJN Defender is a series where I take on the unenviable role of sticking up for the company that has been nicknamed the “Shit Rainbow” in recent years by the AVGN and other notable critics.
LJN obtained the majority of the licenses for movie and comic properties for Nintendo consoles, such as the NES, Super Nintendo, and Game Boy. The high expectations held for video games based on beloved Marvel comics and movies lead to feelings of disappointment in kids of the ’80s and ’90s when they finally played what Beam Software, Atlus, Rare, etc. had to offer. It’s this disappointment that resulted in LJN receiving the reputation of producing crappy games to strike while the iron is hot.
This may be true, but just because a game has flaws, doesn’t mean that it can’t be fun. I grew up with these games just like many of you out there, and I enjoyed the time that I spend with them back then and to this day. That’s why I decided to create The LJN Defender. In this series, I will be voicing the opinion of the minority, those that like playing “bad” video games every now and then.
Over the course of the series, I will eventually end up covering the entire LJN catalog. Which will I be able to redeem and which are beyond redemption? Tune in to the continuing adventures of The LJN Defender to find out!
Have a retro title that you’d like to see me review or a “bad” game that you’d want to see me give a fair trial on Innocent Until Proven Guilty? Feel free to suggest one in the comments.
Also, if you want to know what video games I own, I keep track of most of my collection on Nintendo Age. Feel free to consult it when making a request:
As always, thank you for watching. Your support means the world to me:)
