Summary: I love wolverine! But this game was just to much for me. I stopped playing it after fighting the big rock monster like 3 times doing the same exact attacks. Great story line of course, but kind of repetitive.
Summary: I thought the game was decent until I grew hopelessly bored. Spoiler Alert Your best tactic is lunging at peeps, jumping up, and meeting their heart with your claw. There's satisfying, brutal combat with a real-time upgrade system. You can further your abilities by finding or buying supplemental powers, which can be managed easily. You can switch costumes once you find trophies (like riddler trophies).
Summary: For Wolverine's first stand alone game in a long time, Wolverine holds nothing back. It's action packed, gory, and full of generic Wolverine humor. It almost feels like a God of War or Devil May Cry clone, but falls short in few factors. If you're followed the movie, you'll pretty much know the story. Wolverine has a dark past set in Africa, where his crew of United States mutant marines are looking for "something".
Summary: I got the demo from the PlayStation Store and loved it so I got the game. The graphics for the game look good. The opening and final cut scenes looks the best, while the rest looks average. The levels are pretty big and there are many characters from the movie in the game. The voice acting is good and the game characters look like Wolverine, Victor, John Wraith, Gambit look like the actors, but the rest don't. I didn't even recognize some of them.
sinkt: Wolverine's claws are always out in this game, and sharper than you could imagine.

Summary: Most gamers know to be suspicious of movie-based games because, frankly, they're almost always terrible - even if the material they're based off of is excellent. Well, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a bit of an anomaly because the game is probably better than the actual movie, and for one reason: rewarding, visceral, brutal combat.
Summary: I was skeptical coming into this one. Seemed a little basic and formulated, which usually leaves for a lackluster game. With Wolverine, I can say I certainly had a lot of fun and looked forward to playing the game more. The huge plus is the huge amount of carnage that you get to partake in. I mean you are dismembering men left and right with a whole bunch of different combinations.
Summary: When I heard that X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a good game, I wondered if it was a joke. A good game based on a mediocre movie? No way. But I went and bought the game, and low and behold, I was having a blast within the first 5 minutes. No other game has made me feel as awesome as Wolverine. THIS is how Wolverine's other games should've been. No limits on using claws, no toned down violence, no melodramatic plots, just straight up action.
Summary: I rented the game. I finished it before it was due back to the store. It was fun; nice action, good graphics, but it was very hack and slash repetitive. The things that helped break up the monotony were the boss fights, the cinematic scenes, the puzzles, and the ability to expand your fight techniques slightly as you progressed. The Boss fights were really good and huge. The end fight was a let down compared to the others in the game.
Fun to play but XBOX360 version has better graphics...

Summary: Well, the game is quite the same for both consoles, but PS3 version has less definition than XBOX360 version. I have played the XBOX360 demo and it was totally fun, but instead I ordered the PS3 version that was a completly let down...the graphics are much worse than XBOX360 demo. So, if you are a fan I am quite sure you going to love it, but order the XBOX360 version, with sharper graphics and better definition...

Summary: I had a great time with this game, but I tend to rate my games on more than one play-through. After all, what is the point doling out 60 bucks on a game if it lacks the second or third time through? Overall, the game is really well made. The graphics are solid, and the gore is a nice touch. However, it takes more than some flashy graphics and flying blood to make a good game. Especially today, the game needs to EARN its sixty dollar price tag.
