Genesis Of A Lunge Attack 0

Wolverine's appearance takes a beating in Origins, but dying is a pretty rare occurance.Hot on the heels of the new Wolverine summer action flick comes the video-game tie in. Pleasantly, it's actually pretty good. Raven Software clearly has respect for the X-Men franchise, and it shows throughout this game's stylish hyper-violent combat and great looks. Lunging hundreds of feet through the air and shredding up all sorts of enemies with the eponymous hero's trademark claws and snarls feels just a...

Summer blockbuster fun 0

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is by no means a perfect game. It has a large handful of problems, ones that range from small to medium in size. At times they make the game totally frustrating or even unplayable, and almost cause an otherwise good game to be generally unenjoyable. But the crazy thing about Wolverine is that even with all its problems, it still manages to be fun. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a blast in the simplest of ways, making it a great game for any and all action fans.As mentioned,...

Fast-paced and thrilling, but not quite worth the price tag. 0

This time of year, it's not at all uncommon for a wide array of movie tie-ins to begin cluttering the new release shelf at whatever venue it is from which you purchase games.   Much like backpacks, lunchboxes and action figures, these titles are acutely time sensitive.   As such, the development time is severely reduced when compared to even the most average of game releases, resulting in a generally appalling experience that the vast majority of us have learned to avoid. That said, there have...

X-men Origins: Wolverine Review 0

Having not seen the movie I can't tell you if this is a faithful adaptation or not, but what I can tell you is it is a gory, fast-pace, thrill ride where you get to play as Wolverine and slice and dice the crap out of countless enemies as you get a little bit of history on the clawed hero. You will get to witness his past, and glimpse the future. You'll get to make Wolverine one badass customer who will let nothing stand in his way.Graphically I have to say that this game surprised me. I wasn't ...

A Great Combat system allows Raven to Bring justice to Wolverine- 0

So another year goes by, another Superhero movie game comes out, this time its X-Men Origins Wolverine and it succeeds primarily because it does what no video game has done before....Have Wolverines claws kill people.In the Official Game of the recently released movie you play as Wolverine in two storylines that run parallel to each other and use your claws to tear foes into several bloody bite sized peices.The story of Wolverine takes place in two parallel time periods the first being a mission...

Bullet in the head 0

So there’s a discernable and almost concerning difference in mentality between and the games industry regarding violence. Within the film world, big budget films need be toned down lest they earn the dreaded R rating and restrain kids from seeing the movie and buying the action figures. As a result, we have the goreless Terminator, as well as an action movie where the main protagonist and antagonist are murderers with claws and yet not a single drop of blood is allowed to let. And then there’s...

Not your usual movie tie in game 0

I think anyone would agree that Xmen Origins: Wolverine is a God of War clone, but if your in the mood for some mindless fun then this the game for you. There are some graphical glitches with the PS3 version and the repetitive nature of going back and forth through Logan's history makes the game longer than necessary. This is the worst part of the game.The best? It's one of the most bloodiest games I've ever played. The leveling up aspect and special attacks make the game very fun. It's not wort...

You wanted the animal?! You got him! 0

It shouldn't be difficult to make a game about Wolverine.  The guy murders other guys with six razor sharp adamantium claws on his hands, has a healing factor that makes him one tough sum-bitch, and has a sordid and violent past involving paramilitary organizations, ninjas, and robots.  How it's taken this long to make a decent game involving the feral Canuck is beyond me, but finally, Logan's time has arrived.  X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn't without its faults, but it does what it sets out to d...

NTERESTING WOLVERINE FACT: HE LIKES TO SLICE THINGS OPEN! 0

INTERESTING WOLVERINE FACT: HE LIKES TO SLICE THINGS OPEN!  It's a proven fact that developing videogames based around big hit cinema releases is a challenge, with the movie studio often dictacting what and what shouldn't be included. So why should developers take on such a title, well for one they are often guaranteed to sell copies as excited movie watchers pick up a copy on their weekly shopping spree, plus it's to easy to forget that it's still possible to make a good movie based videogame. ...

You better read this or I'll rip your damn head off, bub! 0

With summer comes the hot weather; a time for holidays with family and friends, playing sports down at the local park and relaxing with an ice cold drink by your side. Ironically enough, it’s also the time when most of us travel down to the hot, sweaty confines of the local cinema, as Hollywood assaults our viewing tendencies with myriad big-budget blockbusters spread out across the entire season. Of course this is enjoyable, but these summer blockbusters bring with them rushed and generally poo...

Definately not another "Movie Game"! 0

Let me firstly just say that this is probably one of the best "movie released games" ever, even grinding through the various achievments is entertaining to a degree. [[Also this will be a relatively quick review]]Story/Gameplay: Is quite long, way more in depth than even the movie and in fact branches out into some of the comic storylines. Ive been playing it for roughly eleven hours, and Ive only just had the fight with gambit so the story is quite lengthy. I think what splits this apart from o...

Clawing dudes is fun, bub. 0

You know what gameplay mechanic I hate? Quck time events (QTE). The ones where they flash a series of buttons on the screen and you have less than a second to press each one, or you have to mash one button inhumanly fast. I've been playing video games for 15 years and I'm still completely unable to do these things. Maybe I'm defective; whatever, my point is they ruin games for me. God of War was one of the worst offenders, where practically every other enemy required severe button-mashing and ev...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn't the best, but far from the worst. 0

    Wolverine Finally gets the video game treatment he's so desperately deserved after travesties such as "X2: Wolverine's Revenge". Originally, this game was not being developed as a tie-in move adaptation, but rather a stand alone game, until the developer's were asked if they would wait to release the game along with the movie. This gave them a whole year to fix and polish the game and do extra work on it, and it some ways, it shows... some.    The important thing is gameplay, and with the in...

Entertaining but not worth the price. 0

The game offers a wide variety of entertainment, however it does get suffer from the main downfall of this genre, it's repition. Countless lunging and button mashing cause this game to lose some points and does not much offer much in the form of replay value. However for completionists out there the hard mode is rather challenging and will add some extra hours to the gameplay, as there will be sections that will require repeated deaths to accomplish. The graphics are hugely impressive but the st...

Pros * The game takes full advantage of what makes Wolverine who he is in terms of his abilities. Whether that's the healing feature which actually shows the bullet holes in his body and him actually regenerating missing... Features. Or him using his claws as if they were actually claws and tearing the enemy to shreds, quite literally in many cases. * Simple controls let you masterfully do the above mentioned tearing enemies to shreds with ease, no complicated combos. * The game bounces backward...

It's the best there is at what it does. 0

Oh man this game is hella fun. Really great hack and slash action. It's sorta like... Max Payne but instead of guns you've got adamantium claws. Every once in a while you'll pull off a crazy move like slicing a guy's torso in half or whatnot and it'll go into slow mo while the blood splatters everywhere. Never fails to make me laugh. And it's all optimized really well for a PC port. This was made by Raven, so that's to be expected, those guys have been working on PC games for ages. It's just so ...

I only kind of regret the weekend I spent with this. 0

If this game is in your gamefly queue, and you happen to get it instead of something that was higher on the queue, you'll probably not regret spending a weekend getting the points on it.  That's as positive as I can be about X-men Origins: Wolverine. It's certainly better than the peice of shit movie, and better than the licensed game of that movie should be, but lowered expectations aren't the magic ingredient to make a mediocre game a good one.  You play as the perpetually pissed Wolverine in ...

The beast is uncaged! 0

Marvel's favorite Canadian son finally gets his own game worthy of praise. It's not exactly a movie tie-in game and the action and story wears thin before it's all over, but damn if it's not a blast to butcher your way past enemies till the very end.The story isn't as jarring as the reviews would make it out to be. From the very first intro cinematic on throughout the test of the game, the levels are all just a series of flashbacks. Its not Academy award winning stuff, but it provides enough of ...

Satisfyingly Brutal 0

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a 2009 hack and slash game based on the movie of the same name. You play as James Howlett, better known as Wolverine, a wolf-like human weapon famed for his adamantium claws and inclination for merciless violence. Of course it’s no secret that video game tie-ins for movies have a history of very poor quality so how does X-Men Origins: Wolverine match up to the competition? Surprisingly well. Gameplay is basically what you’d expect from your standard character-based a...

   Games based on movies are almost always terrible, it's a proven fact, proven by science! From the begining of X-men Origins: Wolverine's development though Raven has been telling us that they were going to make a great Wolverine game despite it being a movie based game. I'm happy to say that they certainly weren't lying, X-men Origins is a good game, it does however have a few technical issues and a problem with repetition which prevent it from becoming great.   First off the game looks prett...

Good ol' fashioned murder 0

Back when I reviewed the Prince of Persia movie, I commented on how normally, movies based on video games are not very good. The reverse is also usually true - a video game based on a movie (and let's face it, these days there seems to always be one) is usually terrible. Most of the time it seems like a quick cash-in attempt, with little polish. By and large, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the exception to this rule, to the extent that it's a more enjoyable experience than the movie itse...

If you are a wolverine fan, you have to play this game 0

 Well, the last three X-Men sucked big time with wolverine not having regenerative ability. In this case Raven harnessed the cult action hero's super powers to its fullest extent. I am kinda surprised that this game turned out to be good not as usual movie tie-ins. Graphics: Not mind blowing but surely pretty. The feral sense mode not only shows where the hell you need to go but also playing in that mode is quite exciting. If you have seen any cut scene from the game the pre-rendered Jackman m...

Cuando vemos un juego basado en una película rápido pensamos en la horrenda estafa que sería comprarlo o simplemente dedicarle cinco minutos de nuestra vida. XMO: Wolverine rompe con la maldición de estos tipos de juegos tomando prestado de Ninja Gaiden II y God of War.

A bloody action game with not much adventure. 0

 For Wolverine’s first stand alone game in a long time, Wolverine holds nothing back. It’s action packed, gory, and full of generic Wolverine humor. It almost feels like a God of War or Devil May Cry clone, but falls short in few factors.  If you’re followed the movie, you’ll pretty much know the story. Wolverine has a dark past set in Africa, where his crew of United States mutant marines are looking for “something”. The game follows close to the movie, enough where it borrows part of the scrip...

Micro-Review: Bloody, Fun Time for the First Couple of Hours 0

This is a fun looking brawler on the surface that quickly becomes repetitive .   Wolverine will certainly scratch your itch if you are looking for a game to bloody up some bad guys. The biggest problem with it though is that it simply gets boring. The combos system is fairly limited, the enemies exhibit the same behaviors and you will quickly find that you execute the same basic attach moves (mostly your lunge and pounce) to take down most baddies.  The controls are pretty good, graphics decent...

X Men Origins Wolverine Review 0

For a long time, Wolverine fans have clamored for a game which makes you truly feel like Wolverine. Raven (developer of Marvel Ultimate Alliance) has delivered on such a game with X Men Origins Wolverine.                  First off, the main part of the game, the combat, is gory and somewhat deep. More combos are unlocked by upgrading your claws. You can also upgrade your max health, rage, and also the duration and damage of your rage attacks. There is also a lunge ability, which you can use to ...

Not only does this game have one of the longest titles I’ve seen in a licensed game, but I’ll go on record now and say that it’s one of the best licensed games ever made. I’m a fucking nerd, through and through, and this game has given me everything I could have ever hoped for in a Wolverine game. I say that not only as a comic book nerd, but also a videogame nerd. This might be a deterrent for you. I can understand that.From this point forward I’ll be referring to this game as “Wolverine,” beca...

Generally movie tie-in games are among the worst in the industry. Usually quick cash ins with limited development time and tiny budgets, it's the rare movie game that rises above the lowest dredges of the gaming barrel. So going into X-Men Origins: Wolverine there was a general expectation that this experience would be a disappointing effort by the usually strong Raven Software. It was a great surprise then that Wolverine is a solid effort. It's still not among the upper echelons of the gaming l...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged 0

X-Men Origins: Wolverine doesn't have very much going for it at first glance. It's got the stigma of being both a movie tie-in game, which is enough to damn nearly anything to the abyss of things we shouldn't care about. It's also a super hero game, many of which in recent years have been underwhelming, at best. Providing maybe a few lackluster hours of entertainment with our favorite heroes. However, the prospect of playing a Wolverine centric game isn't all glum, by any means. The experience i...

You guys have guts… too bad they're all over the floor. 0

The problem with movie tie-ins, most notably to summer blockbusters, is that they all tend to suck. Things are the way they are for number of reasons. Not enough development time to polish the game; lack of creative thinking because the game will sell either way if only the movie is successful; or simply because the source material sucks in the first place. After watching "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" at the cinema when it premiered I was really disappointed with how badly the movie turned out espe...

 Movie games suck. Its one of those unwritten laws of gaming. So upon first hearing of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie tie-in game, I was quick to judge. I rolled my eyes, and thought great, another sucky movie game featuring one of my favorite superheroes. But then, I discovered that it was being developed by Raven, the guys behind the fantastic Action/RPG series X-Men Legends, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. And, they had actually been working on the game for quite some time. After reading p...

Adaptations of movies into video games have always been hit  or miss (mostly miss).  Which is why it's always a massive shock when a game based on a movie can come along and have the audacity to be good.  Gamers were floored after playing The Chronicles of Riddick, GoldenEye 007 or even Aladdin for the Super Nintendo.    Now, add to that list X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the video game based on the 2009 summer blockbuster of the same name.  What really sets Wolverine the video game apart is that it...

"God of War clone".  Every action adventure game that looks even remotely like the God of War franchise must receive this label from everyone and then try to overcome it.  The best thing I can say about Wolverine is that it does this.  While the game certainly has its share of rough edges, it has some great ideas and I can't wait to see if they expand upon them in a sequel.Quick Time Events and interactive cutscenes are common place in this genre, and Wolverine has a fresh take on them.  The gam...

 We're, of course, supposed to ignore the savage butchering of Wolverine's origin in this game, ironically titled X-Men Origins. The game takes place in the form of two separate, simultaneous campaigns: A mission in Africa and the escape from the Weapon X facility. I have no idea how closely it mirrors the movie's storyline, but one gets the feeling, early on, that Raven Software was looking to make a really good game first and any ties to the movie, while nice, weren't necessities.Wolveri...

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a video game developed by Raven Software, the same people that brought us X-Men: Legends I & II, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (They like colons). They’ve certainly established themselves as one of (if not the) top comic book game developers, but what about a game about one of the most popular, and arguably most ridiculously bad ass Marvel characters of all time?

  Yeah, that's gotta hurt... As developers continuously work on ways to advance games and the different ways to play them, the Beat-em-up genre is one that is surely dieing out. Western Beat-em-ups are practically unheard of nowadays with only a few frenzied Japanese style based Beat-em-ups surviving the genre, along the lines of Devil May Cry and the upcoming Bayonetta but one of the great things about this medium of entertainment is that it's never too late for a ressurection.
