Poor Graphics, Not the best
15 December 2009
Summary: Greetings, I rented this game before deciding to buy it and I can honestly say that it is not worth buying. Do not get me wrong, I love Wolverine. First the game graphics are of very poor quality, only you will see really good graphics in parts of the story (BTW you can't skip the story, sucks). Wolverine is made so small that even in my 52" TV does not distinguish well. The game is bloody and has a lot of fights and action.
Excerpt: On paper, X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn’t the type of venture that would normally court much of a fanfare. A game based on a film that was by-extension based on a comic, it’s another stab at a heavy-tone story of rebellious mutant outsiders. But whilst its credentials hardly seem conducive to a successful video game, the end result is really quite surprising. XMO:W doesn’t feel like other superhero games.
Pros: Satisfying, vicious combat; decent longevity; good adventuring elements
Cons: Lots of little glitches; samey enemy design; patchy presentation
Summary: This is a God of War style hack and slash game, but it is distinctly inferior to the game it was cloned from. The combat is fast-paced and aggressive. The ability to lunge at enemies at any time is a very welcome mechanic, and hugely entertaining for a few minutes. The controls are well laid out, and you can usually get Wolverine to go where you want him to go without too much difficulty. However, the combat and the lunging all get repetitive very quickly.
