X-Men Origins: Wolverine
An Okay X-Men Game
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is an okay addition to the PSP. The graphics are a little bit under the okay range, the sound is alright, and the gameplay is pretty fun. The cut scenes in the game are amazing compared with the PS3 graphics. There are about 16 missions, and I stormed through this in a day or two. You can also unlock costumes, concept art, audio logs, and more, too. The game doesn't really follow the movie, but it's an okay game. Overall, X-Men Origins is an okay game for the PSP.
X-Men Letdowns: Wolverine
Challenge - This game is UNGODLY hard. Even on easy mode. As you get later in the game, you will spend several minutes alone fighting regular enemies. Not to mention that some warp, cut out your healing factor completely, and/or deal a massive amount of damage. Sure, you get "upgrades", but those do not seem to help at all. In fact, the game continuously upgrades Wolverine throughout the game and yet the enemies just get harder and harder (the upgrading makes no sense, as you can see). The bigger monster/robot enemies not only do huge amounts of damage, but have immensely high defense and knock you down on top of it all. Don't get me wrong, I like a good challenge... but this was insane. Graphics/Animation - During the cutscenes, Colonel Stryker literally has square/block hands and slams his fist on the computer he's typing in (this is apparently him "typing"). The very first CGI cutscene is amazing, but other than that do not expect much. Length - Only 16 missions total and each one is pretty short on top of that... that is, if you can actually beat the missions. Storyline - Not only does the game not follow the comics, it doesn't follow the movie it's based on! The cutscenes are literally Wolverine getting shocked between every mission. I'm not kidding. If you don't believe me, watch it for yourself. Not much story, just Wolverine's "memories". Controls - I'll admit everything worked out well in the controls department. Pretty simple controls too, nothing to complain about there. Interface - Wolverine does exactly how you input, can't complain about that either. Sound - This is the second to worst part about the game (the first being the insane difficulty). Do you like hearing Hugh Jackman scream? I hope you do cause that's all you'll hear in this game. In between every mission it's just “RRRRRRAAGHH!!!” “UUUURRRRGH!!!!” “HHHUUUUUAAAAAAGH!!!” as Wolverine gets shocked. Oh, and there's some narration by Stryker... but that's it. I couldn't believe they could get away with just shocking Wolverine and having him scream between every mission, over 15 times! Sound is trash.
The game was alright, but not the best. I think that they could of extended the story line a bit more because I just breezed through the game. It felt to easy for me, not enough of a challenge. But besides that the graphics were great for a PSP and the movie clips were great as well. The sound was spectacular, the character's voices were decent sounding for the game. The battles were pretty easy though, especially because of Wolverine 's Rage Mode and the instant kill and combos. Although i'm not complaining about that, it was nice getting rid of your enemy's quickly instead of taking forever. All in all this is a decent game for the PSP and pretty entertaining. I just think that they could of added a bit more of a story in there, made it longer. But still a great game.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
For a portable game its great. Of course its not has bloody as the uncaged edition but it has enough to keep you occupied. the sound is awesome and some of the cutscenes in cg are amazing! The levels are big and its kind of hard to get lost. After you beat the game you can replay any level to do some of the objectives you missed. If you beat the objectives you get costumes, cutscenes, concept art, etc., but you also get audio logs that give you some more background on the already amazing story. Now to the game play. There are not a lot of combos or moves which is disappointing but it will take a while to master all the moves. Also it was disappointing that there's no multiplayer. But its about 10 hours long so if this is the only version you can get your hands on then make sure to get it or get it because you have a psp. Its a good action game that should be played by all.
Wolverine not that good enough for PSP
X-Men Origins Wolverine for the PSP is a poorly designed game. The Graphics are not that great for the psp. You may have the feeling your not playing as Wolverine. The Sound quality is a fair passing rating for this game. When you go throughout the levels, some are easy, but some are challenging. This game is not like the Uncaged Verisons of the PS3 and the 360, when you claw someone, their body parts won't fall out. The Lenght of the game is not that very long. When you face Sabertooth in the Bar Brawl, that's when it's a little bit challenging.But give a few try's and you can ace it. It easy extremely easy when you face ordinary soldiers to kill them. But when you face monsters. Some levels you have to face monsters or big robots. But if you like some challenging games, this game only has a little bit of challange to it.
Not what I wanted.
This game has to one of the worst psp games I have ever played. I rented it thinking it would be pretty cool, I was wrong. In this game you play as Wolverine a mutant with special powers at the start of it you are having flash backs of your times on special missions. Some missions requirering you to assainate some ninja master person. I didn't even finish the game is whats sad I wanted to return it before I even finished. The fighting stile had no stratagy to it, You leap at then then run back leap run leap run. Very boring fights after a while its the same thing over and over again. As far as I got in to this game I didn't find much rezamblis to the movie. I really don't suggest you buying this. If you think I'm wrong rent it first then decide don't wast a good amount of money on this game.
Can't wait for this game
I just can't wait for this game because I am a big fan of X-Men and Wolverine has been my favorite x-men of all time in fact I have the game of X2 Wolverine's revenge for PS2 and I hope that this wolverine game in some what the same with the strike Attack thing and I also can't wait to see the movie in fact I am going to go and get the game on may 1 and after I get the game I am going to see the movie after I get the game and just to say I think that the game and the movie are both going to be the best of this year so that is all I have to say about the game and I can't wait so bye for now.
Can not wait!!!!!!!!!!
I bet this game will be one of the best ever for the PSP. It is also a movie which usually helps and you get to use Wolverine. Will be the best in the X-men series. Even though PSP games do not have as good graphics as the next-gen consoles, I bet the graphics will still be awesome. May 1st is gonna be awesome
I can't wait until May 1st! This game looks amazing! The graphics in the video are awesome! I love superhero type games because you get all these powers. I love Spider Man: Web of Shadows! It's so fun to rip innocent people apart! I also like swinging around! I hope this game exceeds expectations!
Much Better for PlayStation 3
The PS3 version is MUCH better then this or the PSP version. The PS3 version has blood in it, much better graphics and a great number of combos. I loved the PS3 version from start to finish.
