  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. For a game based on the season's first blockbuster, and given how well a job was done on this limited-but-loveable platform, I am impressed.
  3. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a tin-pot tie-in. Bad graphics quality and repetitive gameplay doesn't help it to become a must buy. Only for Wolverine true fans.
  4. There's sadly little in the way of replay value. [July 2009, p.90]
  5. 48
    There's no need to run out and pick this one up.
  6. Just be sure you know what you're getting yourself into with this version of the game, as this mature character and the teen ESRB rating don't seem to mix well.
  7. X-Men Origins: Wolverine only shines in one way. It’s a prime example of how careless publishers and developers can be with video game adaptations of summer blockbuster films.

    this is a very good game for being from a movie and a super-hero particularly, I think critics are comparing to much with PS3 and XBOX 360, not rating the game as it is, and that is wrong because Wii is different and by a lot, if you do not compare it and appreciate it as a game you will find it very fun and good Expand
