Conclusion: On a sadder note however, I did encounter several glitches during gameplay that somewhat ruined it. Ocassionally glitching into objects or behind walls, camera angles fluctuating rapidly and on one occasion I actually fell off the planet. lol. Its such a shame that these few minor inconveniences haven't been fixed, as it would certainly put this game at the top of popular gaming lists.
Excerpt: Playing X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a very odd experience. It's a game based on a 12-rated summer Blockbuster, but it's more violent than any other game released this year. The violence actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it (although we're still amazed it's actually happened), but the game's high quality is really quite surprising.
Excerpt: When it comes to super hero video games based on movies, many experienced gamers tend to stay clear. Incomplete, rushed and full of glitches are often the words used to describe even some of the most promising movie based titles. So when X-men Origins: Wolverine for the Xbox 360 arrived at my home office, I kept my expectations in check.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a review of the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC version of the video game adaptation of the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine , which is much more violent than the PG-13 movie and has earned an "M" rating from the ESRB. Using his metal claws, Wolverine brutally kills enemies in a variety of ways, from chopping their heads off to decapitating them at the waist.
Excerpt: pening with the character plummeting through the sky, crashing claws-first into a hapless enemy, the game states its intent early. is a an enjoyably visceral, if flawed brawler that delivers action and claw-based violence in spades, and provides long-suffering fans a chance to play as Logan at his bloodthirsty best.
Excerpt: Raven Software was tasked with recreating the movie experience of the latest X-Men movie known as X-Men Origins: Wolverine. While the movie was far from being a blockbuster, the video game actually manages to outshine its lackluster big screen counterpart. Following the same basic premise, you play as Wolverine with his indestructible adamantium claws on a revenge mission to destroy his enemies.
Conclusion: X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a fantastic game
that really shows what Raven Software can do
with this genre. The developer has demonstrated
that they have moved up from the mediocre Marvel
Ultimate Alliance and X-Men Legends titles and
have created the best Wolverine game to date!
The combat system is good and the music is well
done thanks to the same composer that made the
great scores for Underworld, Far Cry Instincts,
and Rainbow Six Vegas.
