A few notches short of perfection, but who cares?! IT'S WOLVERINE!!!

Summary: When it comes to video games, movie-based games are the ones getting bad reps these days. I was half-expecting to yank X-Men Origins Wolverine out of my PS3 and ship it back to Gamefly thinking it was gonna be an indespensible money-maker advertising the movie just waiting for any gaming-customer to give in to being $20-$30 broke with a possible bad game.
Summary: A solid action/adventure title with a nice story thrown in. Smooth combos and furious fighting make you truly feel like wolverine, also seeing chunks missing out of you when damaged helps. So pick it up and unleash your inner animal.
Summary: There are lots of games out there worth comparing this one too at the moment. It's a really good mix of things that are working well for other fighting platformers. You're going to hack and slash, but it's going to actually be fun. The visuals are great. I wish the movie had been this ballsy! You'll treasure hunt. You'll solve puzzles and face a variety of different enemies that require different tactics to take down. You'll level your character's powers.
Viscerally fun, or perhaps Evisceratingly fun. Some frustrating platforming.

Summary: This is a game that is surprisingly good. It is probably one of the best movie-tie-in games ever made. But those games tend to trend to the abysmal. The game follows the plot of the movie in loose way but features characters and events not portrayed in the movie. PRO's: 1) Extremely fun and engaging combat system. 2) Wolverine's abilities seem accurately reflected in the game. The regeneration system works well. You can see him heal in front of your eyes.
Summary: It makes you feel like you are Wolverine. But then it does get to be repetitive and some of the areas where you have to jump perfectly are a little ridiculous. They should have added something else to keep it from being basically the same puzzles over and over. However, it is certainly the best Wolverine game to date. I give it an 8 out of a possible 10.
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. Don't read too much into the 7/10 score; what's seven but a number?
