X-Men: The Official Game Online Strategy Guide
Taking place between the time of the X-2 and X-3 movies, X-Men The Official Game tells the story of three very distinct mutants; Wolverine the enraged brawler, Iceman the master of freezing water, and Nightcrawler, the teleporting self-proclaimed pacifist. All three will partake in missions that are rather unique in style from one another, each with their own moves, powers, and abilities to call upon.
This sure does sound confusing, and when adding in the Sentinel Tech pieces and the Weapon X files, this can make for a fairly overwhelming gaming experience, leading to much wailing and gnashing of the oh so perfect teeth. However, there is hope in this world that mutant and homo sapiens have the ability to achieve a peace and live side by si… err… However, IGN has stepped up, learning all there is to know about this game, lending their mad gaming skills to help solve the bad elements that look to change the world in their favor!

Unlockable: Wolverine Street Clothes

Hint - Share The Achievement
May not be valid for subsequent Xbox patches.
All acheivments in the game can be obtained by someone else, but applied to your gamer score by playing in co-op. The trick requires two friends playing co-op frogger.
First, start a co-op game with someone who is good at the game (GAMER 1). YOU must host the match (you are on the left screen). Have your other friend (GAMER 2) host a private co-op match and send you an invite to it (don't accept it just yet).
Play through the co-op game, it does not matter if YOU die as long as GAMER 1 obtains the criteria for the achievment. As soon as he meets the criteria (i.e. beats level 5) accept your friend's invite before GAMER 1 loses all his frogs (join GAMER 2's game while GAMER 1's game is still going)
Since you have now switched from the left hand screen to the right hand screen (because you are no longer hosting) the game thinks that YOU completed the achievments which GAMER 1 did.

N3: Ninety-Nine Nights Online Strategy Guide
Long have Humans and the Outland races been at war, the Humans with the Orb of Light and the Outland races with the Orb of Darkness. Both sides have skirmished for millennia, with no great gains made, but many sorrowing losses of life have been achieved in this stalemate. However, a war is brewing, a war that will see entire cities wiped clean of life, battles in harsh mountains and open fields and forests shrouded in mystery. This is not a war based in gain of territory but rather one of gaining possession of the other sides Orb, bringing about the Ninety-Nine Nights to end this Age and usher in a new one. Is it the work of these power hungry races, just a few overly zealous leaders, or something...more sinister?
Well, the battles are to be immense, with thousands of soldiers on each side clashing at one time, with conventional weapons, catapults, dragons, and magics, making for one tough road to the top of the heap. This is where IGN comes in, bringing all of the goods, bringing the needed info, and bringing you slickest strategies to help turn the tide of war in favor of whichever side you support. Moves and Combos are no problems to figure out with our full list. Learn how to identify each character when they are friend or foe on the battlefield, making use of the Character analysis to better understand how to use or abuse them in battle.

N3: Ninety-Nine Nights Online Strategy Guide
Finish the game with all the other characters.
Unlockable: Inphyy Mission
Complete the game with all the main characters. With the saved progress, load-up Inphyyy as a selected character and she will have an extra mission to play.
You must finish Fort Wyandeek with Inphyy.
Hint - Deus Ex Generalities
Some general hints for N3 players!
(1) The maximum level of a character is nine. More attacks are unlocked at higher levels, and more potent weapons (if acquired) may be equipped.
(2) Replaying a mission will slowly increase the potency of items (extrapolation from game manual).
(3) Items however, are partly randomized in chests and always randomized from dead enemies.
(4) Save slots track campaign progress and character development. Reserve one slot for each character!
(5) When you acquire a weapon or item, don't forget to equip it (Status Menu). Equipped items are organized by power level (Clover 2 will precede Life Globe 1 for example).
(6) Blocking is universal (and non-chipping). Block often against bosses or don't expect to survive.
(7) Orb Spark (blue) is very rare. If you have to forego an Orb Attack (red) to get more blue orbs or just to save up the Orb Spark for a boss or big conglomeration of enemies, do so.
(8) Troops are expendable. Use them or lose them.
(9) Allied officers are invulnerable. Use them to lure bosses while you attack .... from the back.
(10) Inphyy's final stage is impossible without some serious devotion. First, she needs her level 9 attack move. She also needs to achieve several S ranks across her stages -- this is because there's an item that lets Inphyy do red meter draining moves without draining the red meter. You will need that to defeat the ultimate enemy!
Hint - Curse Yourself And Be Stronger
Obtaining higher combos will unlock more powerful weapons. I was able to unlock the aegis charm 4 which raises your defense up by 80%. I was also about to obtain the Royal Flag (50% range attack & 20% Attack Power) and Royal Crown (Critical 50%).
The trick is to use those cursed items to weaken your character so you dont kill everyone in one hit. Each character has a level where you can rack up a huge combo. I got those items for Imphyy when I first reach a 9800 combo!
When you play the tutorial stage, check every treasure chest in sight for a Prominence weapon. Although you need to increase Inphyy's level to equip it, this is the only method to unlock this sword before committing to Inphyy's campaign.
Hint - King of Nights
Beating the final boss of N3 is much easier (and do-able) by doing the following:
1. Increase Inphyy's level to nine for her final attack.
2. Attain the accessory "Deadly Armband" as a randomly dropped item from various Army of the Night enemies.
3. A strong weapon. The Klausorus is an award for S rank in Inphyy's Eauvarria Mountain Pursuit.
4. Do Inphyy's final aattack move (GREEN, GREEN, YELLOW) on the boss when it is distracted and dash to evade all retaliatory attacks.
5. As a safety net, consider equipping the accessory "Demon Gloves" if necessary.

Hint: Unlimited Chips & SP
At London city, go to the casino (slum area). Use a save and load method, and play roulette by betting 1000 chips for the first 9-12 numbers which you can earn around 24000-26000 chips if you win. The chances is roughly 1/3 to 1/4. Quit casino and save after you win. Naturally, if you lose, reload your last save. Repeat that and you can earn unlimited casino chips.
After you obtained all the goodies in the casino presents, you can sell that item in casino which recovers 50% of your HP and EP at the shop next door. You can only carry 9 on you at a time. So you will have to buy them from casino using chips and sell them at the shop. You can get 5400 TB for 9 of them. Repeat the step above and you can have unlimited money and unlimited SP because SP can be purchased at the shop.
Hint - Omega Tactics
Omega is the final boss in the holy beast shrine At first it seems impossible to kill Omega with him having 99999 hp and ep but he is rather easy to defeat with a golem that has a special attack that takes a % of damage. I used Sebastian sniper shot. The first few shots with him did about 35000+ damage. Other golems you can use is Raiko or Samurai. Lastly, keep your members out of his God Scream ability if possible.
