X-Men Origins: Wolverine

 

Origins looks and sounds fantastic. Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber reprise their roles as Wolverine and Victor Creed in the game. They both perform well (unlike some big name actors, they didn't treat the game's voice work as just a paycheck),...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

 

Far better than the movie, and easily the goriest Wolverine title to date.

The soundtrack isn't particularly memorable, with more of that big, epic score type music that you kind of get accustomed to in blockbuster games nowadays, but without any one particular theme that really stuck with me. The voice acting is pretty solid...

Winston Churchill once described Russia as a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. The same could very well be said of Wolverine, a character for which there are more questions than answers...or, at least there were. Since his first appearance...

Very fleshed out and action-packed ; Surprisingly varied gameplay ; Far-reaching fan service ; Fantastic graphics

Repetitive and exploitable combat ; Barely related to the movie ; Er, regenerating clothes ; Glitchy as hell

As I’ve admitted before, X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a surprising experience for me. It wasn’t just that it was a decent licensed game – we’ve seen plenty of those in recent years, with everything from Harry Potter to The Spiderwick Chronicles – but...

SNIKT-SHK- SSLAKK-SHLUK-SKRUTT- SFLANG-Repeat.

While X-Men Origins: Wolverine has some nice features, it ultimately can’t shake its mediocre gameplay. While it joins the likes of Ghostbusters: The Video Game and the various Lego titles in bringing back some semblance of hope to license games in...

Raven Software's X-Men Origins: Wolverine the game we have clamored for our adamantium hero to star in. No, it is not an epic story worthy of its own film. Instead, Wolverine is no longer restrained and weakened as in previous games with health bars...

Gritty and violent ; Healing regeneration ; Hugh Jackman voice acting ; Initially fun to play

Lackluster visuals ; Repetitive combat, enemies and gameplay ; Poor story

There is a fair amount of character management and hidden items such as dog tags, costumes, and power ups but once again they seem moot when nothing adversely affects the gameplay. A statistics feature is a fun addition where you can monitor all your...

Every review of a movie tie in game starts by mentioning how movie tie in games are never any good and that you should lower your expectations before considering the title. I'm not going to do that for this review because Raven is the developer behind...

While the game doesn’t break any new ground it is a lot of fun to play and worth your time if you’re a Wolvie fan or looking for a glimpse of what God of War could look like in HD

Snikt!

Perhaps the most irritating thing about this game is the fact that once you’ve beaten the game, and unlocked “Hard Mode,” you can’t start a new game with your beefed-up character. This means you’ll have to re-earn all of your skill and mutagen...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine [PS3, X360]

 

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is based on the movie of the same name and although film ports don't have a great track record, this is an exception as it is quite a good game.  It has a variety of standard, special moves and other features to keep your...

Great variety of moves ; Excellent graphics ; Superb gameplay ; Fighting mutants from the movie ; Fighting the Sentinel

A few Glitches ; No online play ; No replay value

X-Men fans, Wolverine fans in particular will revel in the opportunity to play an entire game dedicated to the mighty clawed one, so this was either going to be a disappointment or a great experience, thankfully it was more the latter.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

 

Less than five minutes into Wolverine, the player gets a clue that the game isn't like any other licensed game they've played before.  In the opening cutscene, Wolverine and his teammates are in a helicopter on their way to a mission when the chopper...

Wolverine as he was meant to be: violent and ferocious ; Leveling and mutagen equipping allow for some variation in how the game is played

Boss fights are boring next to the creativity of the regular-level brawling ; Some weird glitches throughout, but only once did it require a game restart

In the opening cutscene, Wolverine and his teammates are in a helicopter on their way to a mission when the chopper gets shot down

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

 

This is a fairly easy game to summarize: If God of War and Uncharted got together to have babies, Wolverine would be their offspring. While not as polished or innovative as the games that inspire it, Origins definitely sets the bar pretty high for...

It's obvious from the beginning that this game isn't trying to do anything new or terribly innovative. Origins does action, and does it well. It also does visceral, bloody combat extremely well. The addition of environmental kills makes the already...
