    IGN - Bryan Joel Sep 10, 2008

    Still, at the end of the day it's still just a superfluous, glossy tie-in that's light on plot and misfires completely at doing anything that doesn't involve Skrull battles. There's an ineffective thread involving Nightcrawler's talking crystal ball that's attempting to draw a link between Skrull religion and (ostensibly) his own beliefs, but Hercules managed to do the Skrull religion schtick a lot better. Cary Nord's art is dodgy at times, especially with faces. When multiple squads of X-Men begin appearing it's sometimes difficult to figure out who's who. There's certainly some fun to be had here for the hardcore X-Men reader, but most others probably won't see the point in picking SI: X-Men #2 up. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 13, 2008

    It's solid action, unique artstyle (although a little weaker with facial expressions this time around) and the XMen being the competent team that's trained their whole lives for these types of situations make this a fun read. Definitely a must read for any Nightcrawler fan. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Christopher Power Sep 9, 2008

    I very much want to recommend this book because I think there are interesting things being done in it. However, all of these matters detract from the experience. The book--both story and art--feel rushed out to print, without appropriate editorial reigns being taken to clean up some of the above points. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Sep 13, 2008

    With all the tie-ins associated with the Secret Invasion I knew that there was bound to be a few duds. I'm just shocked and disappointed that the biggest dud involves some of my favorite characters. Skip this one. Read Full Review
