  1. With its stunning graphics and terrific story line, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is definitely one of the more pleasant surprises of the year.
  2. The game is not perfect but it’s a very good start. I recommend X-Men Origins: Wolverine – Uncaged Edition for the PC to anyone wanting to take a walk on the wild side.
  3. Give Raven kudos for staying true to the character and producing a highly visceral gaming experience.
  4. A bit awkward and rough, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is still a nice game. It’s an energetic sharp-clawed slasher with some original ideas. Fans of X-Men can look no further.
  5. Overall, Raven Software did a very good job of sticking close to the movie plot while simultaneously delivering a rewarding experience.
  6. A very dynamic game. The fights are challenging, the puzzles and skill tests are entertaining. Sure, most of the gameplay elements have been taken from other games, but that doesn't hurt. If you are looking for a good action game, you'll have fun for sure. We just missed a combo counter.
  7. X-Men Origins: Wolverine has a few serious problems that Wolverine's healing factor just isn't strong enough to recover from: repetitive backdrops, cookie-cutter enemies, and inconsistent graphics and dialogue. It's quick, brutal, dumb and repetitive.

    One of the best video games I've ever played. I always hated the 'slash n gash' video games, because they were just.. Repetitive. Wolverine:One of the best video games I've ever played. I always hated the 'slash n gash' video games, because they were just.. Repetitive. Wolverine: Origins is different. The story, mixed with the upgrades, mixed with the gruesome kills, mixed with the bonkers amount of action, made this game EXCELLENT. The graphics are great. The only negative to this game, and it's a huge negative - is the nearly impossible run-and-jump parts. I just quit all-together eventually. It's just too frustrating. If you have the patience, I'd recommend this game to anyone. If it started you off where you left off, or atleast close to where you left off, it would make up for it.. Instead, you have to start alllll over. I gave up and watched the walkthroughs instead. Buy this game. Expand

    the best wolverine video game to date. this game is the rated-R version of the movie. the developer took a page from the God of War games andthe best wolverine video game to date. this game is the rated-R version of the movie. the developer took a page from the God of War games and highlighted Wolverine's ferocious and always bloody finishing moves. When playing this game I felt like I was Wolverine and the developers did a great job in portraying the character on -screen. They even have Hugh Jackman do the voice-acting.

    I loved how they displayed Wolverine regeneration ability, on the character model.

    Although as fun as the game was the game's AI was incredible easy. After a few hours of playing, the enemies took very simple strategies to kill; especially the end-boss fight ...

    I would recommend this game to any Wolverine fans. Much more enjoyable than the movie counterpart. 7/10
