  1. This tears your skin off! Fast gameplay, customisable upgrades and lots of style – despite the repetitive action, Wolverine definitely is the best game incarnation of our favorite super-hero.
  2. It's short - really short - about four hours in total the first time around. Unlockables and achievements, as well as additional modes, add to the package in a meaningful way, but the gameplay, ultimately, isn't that diverse.
  3. 62
    X-Men Origins: Wolverine for Nintendo DS is a product that, despite the backing of the movie's success, has resulted in quite a mediocre game.
  4. Graphically confused, the sound is limited, the gameplay does not entertain for more than half an hour and longevity is short. You don’t replay the game because the character is not difficult to master and the extra level of difficulty is not enough to start the game again.
  5. 50
    I expected oomph, I got something rather tame and repetitive.
  6. If you’re a seasoned gamer looking for a short X-Men fix, this one works, but most other folks will want to take a pass.

    The film was duff; the game's duff. [Aug 2009, p.77]
