Having read X-Men for a long while I am not entirely happy with the current state of things.
The story in X-Men: Legacy should be the main storyline. Uncanny seems to be meandering along waiting for issue 500 to hit just to do anything. X:L is actually telling an extremely interesting narrative about the history of the X-Men and Xavier on his quest for closure, acceptance, whatever. X-Men: Legacy is the main prize of the X-titles.
The main problems is that Cable is rather boring, X-Force has little impact, X-Factor is worthless, and Young X-Men is redundant.
There are two problems with Cable. It is slowly paced and the artist is wrong for the title. Whoever did the dramatic scenes between Cable and the baby in Messiah Complex, Chris Bachelo, should be doing this series. Olivetti cannot do action well in my opinion and his cinematography is terrible. The book just doesn't look right and the pacing so far has been too slow.
X-Force is an interesting book. Another book I think that suffers from weirdly painted art, but it kind of works for the grittiness of the title. I think this one personally should have been handled by David Finch instead of Clayton Crain. The plot of the series while interesting, makes the title seem like a throwaway due to the blackops nature of it. The current plot is amazing, but since everything is supposed to be hush-hush I fear nothing will become of it.
X-Factor is doing terrible. An Arcade storyline to follow Messiah Complex? Jesus, PAD, you could have done better. This book truly has no purpose and it shows. I personally believe that X-Men should not be done in Nior, which this book is all about. X-Men is done well in widescreen action, soap opera dramatics, but not Nior....no not Nior.
Young X-Men is just a disaster already. The look of the book is awful. The coloring and inking is atrocious. I enjoy paquette's art, but this is something else entirely. It looks like it was colored in watercolor my god.
Plus, the book has several Young X-Men I have absolutely no care for. I has just begun to enjoy most of the New X-Men when they ended the run inexplicably. Bad move.
Not only that but Uncanny. Poor, poor, Uncanny. I saw the solicitations for issue 500. Greg fucking Land. Wow. I am going to buy it since I am an X-Men whore, but Wow. Greg fucking Land. Need anything else be said?
