Summary: The "don't watch the movie, play the game" rumors were true. It's kind of amazing this game is as good as is being that games that are based off movies typically aren't very good. The action is fast paced and awesome. You can earn a skin in the game that is the original yellow costume from the comics and finally get to see Hugh Hackman in the yellow tights. The cut scenes and the over all story are 100 times better than what the movie gave us.
Summary: The graphics in this game are good, seeing Wolverine's wounds heal over time is pretty cool and also watching bodies being sliced apart. The gameplay is also good although it gets repetitive real quick. It is a short game and only worth multiple playthroughs if you want to earn all the trophies for it.
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.
While Not Great, it's the Best Wolverine Game to Date...

Summary: Next to Batman, Wolverine has to be my favorite super-hero. Unfortunately, our metal clawed mutant has even less luck getting a good inspired video game than our Gotham City vigilante. The typical beat-em up formula is employed here and while this fits Wolverine's style, the game uses uninteresting puzzles and reuses the same bad guys with very little variation. You will find that Wolverine's moves are interesting though the lunge move is the most powerful and most fun.
Summary: To start with, I,m a huge x-men fan and can't wait for x-men destiny to come out, but this game was just alright. I mean, i loved all the blood and gore, but the graphics were not that good. They were only good when it came to the real movies.
Summary: I got the Wolverine game a few days ago from Game Fly because I wasn't sure if it was gonna be any good because most movie based games suck balls. But to my pleasant surprise I really enjoyed this game to the point where I didn't want to stop playing it. I just had so much fun with the game. It was bloody, gruesome, and balls to the wall fun.
