277w ago - X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition Review by Shummyr:

Name of Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition
Publisher: Activision
Release Date: 5-1-2009
Genre: Action and Adventure
Player: 1
Buy/Don't: No (But makes a good weekend rental)
Overall Rating: 5.0 out of 10.00
Platforms: XBox 360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP and PC

This is a simple hack-and-slash game... it will take about 20 hours to complete. The camera is fluid but can be a tad bit jerky at times, other than that it's good.

The story is somewhat shallow and the flashbacks are frequent. The controls, however, are very well placed and easy to remember.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Uncaged Edition) presents an excellent amount of challenges, and the achievements are strategically placed so that unlocking them coincides with relevant parts of the storyline.

It's also very neat how you can unlock old costumes and play with the classic costumes.

This game reminds me a lot of Wolverine's Revenge.. very similar if not a remake, with updated graphics and a new storyline.

The reason I would not buy this game instead of renting it is because I'm not a big fan of hack-and-slash genre (it's boring) and there is basically no replay value. You play through it once, and you have completed the game.

Note: This review was based on the XBox 360 version.

I'd agree with the review... the games a generic hack and slasher... the demo was awful and the actual game isnt much better.

I didnt even think the graphics were that good either... although to be honest some attacks do look pretty cool, like when you attack a chopper pilot through the windscreen.
+1 playing the demo didn't make me want buy the game.
