  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.

    Nothing but good memories. It offers so much more than the movie did and you can't really say this about many movie video-games.

    Gave up just before finishing it at the last boss, i had no idea it was the last boss. The game can be very frustrating and unfair at times.Gave up just before finishing it at the last boss, i had no idea it was the last boss. The game can be very frustrating and unfair at times.

    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

    I first played this game 10 years ago so don t expect me to write a detailed review about it. You wont find a good story cuz not even the filmI first played this game 10 years ago so don t expect me to write a detailed review about it. You wont find a good story cuz not even the film was good in that aspect. It s a decent combat if you like wolverine that s more of it, but even like this sometimes you ll get bored sometimes you ll really have fun Expand
