Rated 8 out of 10 by darbyogill Great Game!
I thought this game was going to be horrible! I read the first 5 reviews on the game and decided to buy it (since they were great reviews). Played the game, and about jumped out of my seat with excitement. The reviews I had read were correct, this was a great game. Probably the best game made after a movie. The reason it was great, was because it didnt really have much to do with the movie. The game itself is much like if you were to combine God of War with Starwars: The Force Unleashed. The gameplay is great and the graphics are wonderful. The game length was just about right, perhaps just a little short. Either way, if you buy this game, you will be overly satisfied with the great cutscenes and the combat dynamics. Though, I would not recommend it to children since it is filled with lots of violence and gore. I give this game a 9 overall since it is not a perfect game, and could use some very minor tweeks. It is a great game for the collection though, so go and buy it!
Rated 8 out of 10 by C Man 11 Great Game!!!!
Let me first start off by saying, all of you who gave this game a 10 is crazy. Thats saying the game is perfect when it is not. But now to my review..... i wasnt sure whether or not to buy the game at first becasue it s a movie game. So I downlaoaded the demo and was suprised at how good it was. i went out and bought the game and im a couple of hours in and am very impressed. The game starts off with a bang stranding you in Africa looking for your brother(sabretooth). Here you learn the basic moves of the game and have very cool experience of jumping onto a helcopter!!! ever since then the controls are smooth, leveling up is fun, the environment looks great, and the game overall feels very smooth. However, there is no online play which could have been very cool. Like adding some of the other x- men characters to be playable in an online deathamatch mode. But overall the game takes a big step for movie games and brings out its claws for Batman later in the year
Rated 10 out of 10 by Wolverine Master Great but short...
I bought the game on a sunday after seeing the amazing ads and playing the demo knowing it would be an awesome game. It featured my favorite gaming features including breath taking graphics, life taking combos and dismembering finishers. The game was of course centered around Wolverine- the claw bearing Weapon X- on an adventure that would start his story. There are many bosses, mini bosses, and every form of enemy you could imagine. It was set up around the leveling system, getting skill points to spend on improving your health, rage, claws, and rage abilities. Then there are Mutegens that you can equip, that boost your reflexes, damage, health, health regeneration, rage, and rage abilities. Then there is the bad news, the next day on monday, after a hard day of playing it, I beat it. The entire game (on easy) in about 15 hours. The story at the end left it completely open. I suggest your rent this, and what ever you decide to do, enjoy!
Rated 8 out of 10 by MaqDiesel Pretty good title
For a game made by a developer I haven't heard of, this game isn't to bad. It may have its glitchy spots, odd gameplay in certain areas, but other than those two small things the game is good. I'm a tough critic when it comes to glitches, but honestly the gameplay isn't really affected by this problem. With solid graphics, decent control setups, and storyline, customization for Wolverines abilities and powerups, the game is well-rounded. For the price of $9.99, it is worth the $10, I rented it and may pick it up after I return the rental. A definite must have for X-Men fans, granted the storyline doesn't follow along with the movie or any movies, it is not a bad storyline. Other X-Men stars appear in this game along with a few other things that are in the movies, comics,, and cartoons. The game is single player only with no multiplayer options, so don't expect this from the title. Not bad for expanding the X-Men fans collection of titles.
Rated 7 out of 10 by RD A Good Game But Could Of Been Alot Better
This is a good game but even on hard its still easy to me the storyline was way too short i beat it overnight. The graphics are wonderful and it plays and sounds good. The ripping people apart is also wonderful but i think could of been done better. Wolverine should be able to use those rage moves of his nonstop in the game it would of made him seem even more bad ass then he already is. But this game did get boring to me rather quickly. After i beat the game i put in my nba 2k9 because that seems to be the only game that gives me a real workout an i still have not beat it yet. Hopefully the next wolverine game will be way longer in the storyline an it should also have a vs fighting part more like the dragon ballz games are with the storyline and the vs modes. But like i said its a good game no a great game i just wish activision actually put a little more thinking time into this game making it more interesting and harder and longer to play with more characters in the storyline an ones that you can also control outside of the storyline.
Rated 10 out of 10 by godofawsome02 X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged Edition
this game is amazing! its a good contender to games like god of war and devil may cry.its is also kinda better than the psp version but the graphics and blood set them apart. the wolverine in this game will tear you apart limb from limb.this game is extremely gore and fun. i sometime let bosses hurt me so i can se the gruesome damage they do to wolverine.he can take enough damage for his bare ribs to show. the gameplay is fast, fun, and furious as wolverine unleashes his awesome moves on them. you get experience by collecting dog tags and killing people.you also get costumes for finding hidden toy action figures and then beat that wolverine in the challenge room.there are plenty of bosses to keep you occupied and if you pre-ordered like i did you got a cheatto access four different rooms. my favorite is the decapitation room. its a fun and gory action game with our favorite childhood hero wolverine as we always wanted to see him.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Anemicnapalm Adamantium Awesomness!!!1
For years i avoided this game because it was associated with promoting a movie, and we all know most movie to game adaptations are pretty lame, however there are exceptions to the rule Wolverine x men origins is one of those exceptions with white knuckle action a god of war like Game-play and Super over the top GOre(no joke it is gory!!!)this game had me floored not to mention it uses the Unreal 3 engine( batman Gears of war series, Mass Effect series etc. so the graphics are top notch, the sound is great Hugh Jackman does the voice overs which gives it a great narrative , all around a Diamond in the Rough as far as movie games go , no i know the story loosley fallows the movie , but it was developed to premote the Film so it falls in that category , 10 bucks you cant go wrong , i Love wolverine as a kid and now to see him slicing and dicing limbs ,decaptitating and disembowling like the true wolverine i am stoked that it has a darker direction , Not for kids , if you like this game may i also suggest Captain america, it was also a great game .
Rated 10 out of 10 by SINY Great Game
This game is absolutely amazing. The graphics are incredible and its great beacause you can actually see his body, muscles, and skin regenerate. The length was pretty good, it took me about 2 1/2-3 days to finish which was fine. The weapon x feature was also a great add on, lots of fun and lots of blood. The controls are pretty simple and fit in perfectly with wolverine. For a movie, it ertainly is different and isnt a dissapointment like most people assume it would be. Its one of the few games, and movie games that actually makes u feel like your the character and youh have all of the power he comes with, like Spiderman 2. The only downfall of this game was he story. I t doesnt follow much of the movie except for the characters, and you go back and forth in time through flashbacks, but there are some ups and downs to that to. Like for example, it shows you the post apocolyptic world before and after the game, and even includes the sentinels which was the blast to fight. Overall this game was great and definitely worth buying, at least for the 360 or PS3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by infinite gamer guru best movie game ever
Movie games are always downers, but Xmen origins is not. From the begining to the end I was very pleased with the over the top actoin. If you are a God of War fan and can't wait for the third one give this game a try. Alot of movie games stick too close to the movie or are not like the movie what so ever. This game is somewhere in the middle which makes it awesome. This game's enemies are not very challenging because Wolverine invincible and adding more invinciblity you get level ups, upgradable attacks, and fast health regen. I'm not saying this is bad I'm just saying that Activision and Marvel got Wolverine's characteristicts right, he is invicible. Now one of the best features of the game was that the actor that plays Wolverine in the movies Hugh Jackman was in the game as well. All and all the game was awesome if you like the Wolverine comics, the movies, and a God of War style of game play pick this one up.
Rated 10 out of 10 by AbsurdDJn1k3 CRAZZZZYY!!!!!
Okay, i have only one word for this game......AMAZING!!! You have to buy it. It has to be the game of the year. The controls are great because they are so simple and you can perfect every combo with ease. The only bad thing i would have to say about this game is its interface. This is only a problem when you fight the fat dude the blob and in the senital boss battle. Otherwise everything else is amazing. The length is pretty decent but the game is so good you could keep playing over and over and over and over again. It would NEVEEEERR get old. The graphics are pretty modern for these days but arent as good as games like resident evil5. Dont listen to all those people giving this game bad ratings. I had no idea what they are talking about they are either bad at games or sit inside their house all day and make amazing games look bad. Even if you not a xmen or wolverine fan this game is still amazing. I was very skeptical about this game because i like shooter games but when i saw my friend play it i just had to get it. This game is worth its price GET ITTTTTTTTT!!!!!
