  • Summary: Unleash the razor sharp adamantium claws, feral instincts, and mutant regeneration powers of the world's fiercest Super Hero - Wolverine - and uncage the story of how the ultimate weapon was created. The team at Raven Software has dedicated Wolverine's development to unstoppable, true-to-character authenticity. Take on impossible odds and exact revenge. [Activision] Expand

  1. A movie-based game that is well done and relatively problem free? X-Men Origins: Wolverine is definitely one of the more pleasant surprises of the year.
  2. While X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not a perfect game, Raven can easily lay claim to having created the best game ever starring Wolverine.
  3. The game may lose steam as it goes, but the excellent combat still makes it worth the price of admission.
  4. Overall, Raven Software did a very good job of sticking close to the movie plot while simultaneously delivering a rewarding experience.
  5. 71
    Perhaps the greatest achievement here is the way the gameplay evokes the sensation of being Wolverine.
  6. Undoubtedly the most enjoyable game to be based around Wolverine (but that's probably not saying much), X-Men Origins: Wolverine offers fast-paced, brutal, brainless action by the bucketload.
  7. Then there's the visual sadness, which includes duff lighting, awkward cameras, and the stuttering Zoetrope-style framerate. [June 2009, p.98]

    Could not be more happy with this game. A lot more fun than I was expecting. Combat, graphics, achievements, all just excellent indeed. I enjoyed it more than i did the movie. Expand

    This game is a mindless beat em' up at its best. There's plenty of action and blood to keep anyone entertained, and the game as a whole is a satisfying package. Although it's not a triple A blockbuster, it is fun for a play-through. Expand

    Un juego bastante recomendable, engancha desde el principio y lo quedras regugar minimo dos veces, el unico juego que vale la pena jugar siendo de una pelicula, muy bueno la verdad, lo recomiendo para los fans y los no tan fans, modo historia mas que aceptable, enemigos buenos, modo aventura bastante lineal, pero con toques que desmerecen un buen punto, en definitiva, un gran juego, con una trama mas que aceptable y unos graficos bien creados, un sonido muy bueno y mas sabiendo que esta en castellano y la innovacion esta bastante bien.
