X-Men: Children of the Atom review

Computer Games Magazine (1997): "The glaring problem with the game is that it remains DOS-based. While it will use a six-button controller, you can't use two of them. Basically what this means is that Acclaim has turned a traditionally head-to-head two player competition into a one-player game. If you can get past the DOS interface, though, it's still an excellent 2D fighting game."

Retro gamer collector's corner:

The home version of the game was originally a Saturn exclusive, but versions for the PlayStation and MS-DOS were released in North America and Europe in 1997.
