  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.

    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.

    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,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 Collapse

    "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is better than most movie licensed games but that is only due to the basis of comparison. The story line follows"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is better than most movie licensed games but that is only due to the basis of comparison. The story line follows the film's with a few additions to pad out the run time. To be fair though the combat itself can be fun at times but it can get monotonous pretty quickly. I will commend the combat animations though as they show the brutalities of Wolverine's attacks. They are lethal and bloody which matches the kind of character he is. The execution moves do not shy away from how savage they can be especially when the enemies beg for their lives before they are sliced into ribbons. Graphically the game is your standard shovel ware for the Wii. They are pretty bland and not fun to look at but they wont impact the game-play itself either. The combos are your typical combos which does have a visual flourish but the mechanics behind those attacks are really combos you can find in many other Spectacle Fighter games. There are collectibles for the completionists but they are superficial at best and are only there to pad out the game time. Bosses are repetitive but not too difficult as they give a reasonable challenge. The biggest fault with this game though are the quick time events especially with the climbing segments. Quick time events with the exception of a few "cinematic" games I believe hurt the immersion instead of enhancing it. I want to watch the story unfold but it is interrupted when I have to press a button. It is especially frustrating with the Wii-Remote so it got in the way of my progress. If you really want to slice people to ribbons as Wolverine this would be a harmless waste of time but if you are looking for a great Spectacle fighter, you are better off playing Devil May Cry or many of the Platinum games.
