That's enough to guarantee that the game sucks, for me. Being able to choose your powers at the beginning is one thing. Being able to switch your powers on the fly makes no sense in a universe where you are a mutant and are born with your powers.
It makes complete sense in a video game where the goal is to be fun and allow players to play the game in whatever way they want to.
