Summary: Bought for a 13 year old nephew. He said it was a decent game, but the graphics were quite cartoon-y. Maybe at that ago though he's just very sensitive about anything that could be perceived as being for a younger age group.
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. Any preconceptions of a softly-softly ...
Pros: Satisfying, vicious combat; decent longevity; good adventuring elements
Cons: Lots of little glitches; samey enemy design; patchy presentation
Summary: X-men origin is a game with a mix of pro's and con's. in X-men origins: wolverine it tells the story of wolverines life just like film,except it adds a few more scenes, for example defeating wendigo prototypes and the sentinels. PRO's - Very brutal, as much violence as GOW and Dante's inferno - Good upgrade system , so "stylish" kills will earn higher XP(Environmental kills and combos) - Graphics are decent - The controls from the game are easy to get the hang of.
Summary: It's a fun game about a very admirable character. Playing Wolverine could never be less than fun. The only thing I did not like much about it is that it's very repetitive. You just move from killing one bad guy to another untill the end of the game. The "bosses" are the ones where you have the most fun playing, because you need to think and discover the right way to fight them. The rest is pretty redundant.
Excerpt: I found this to be quite an average game, boosted only by the fact your playing as wolverine. Although it starts well and is good fun slashing your way through hundreds of enemies it soon becomes very repetitive. There some good combat moves and some nice gorey finishers or quick kills but its not enough for what is quite a long game. In parts you would be fighting four of the same 'boss style' characters at once and rather than challenging it just became irritating.
Conclusion: it is a not a bad game to play and the grafics are quit good it does not go with the lastest flim wolverine the movie i would not recomend it to my friends i give it 3 out of 10 not good for marvel fans
Summary: The game play itself is great if a bit repetitive. The problem for me was the senseless gore, in most games (including previous wolverine games)you have the option to turn the blood off if it gets too much, this is not an option in this game. It seems strange to me that a 18+ game was created for 12 film.
