239w ago - X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition Review by Shummyr:
Name of Game: X-Men Origins: Wolverine - Uncaged Edition
Release Date: 5-1-2009
Genre: Action and Adventure
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...

I'm the Project Lead on X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Though tomorrow is a BIG day - we get to chat here in the Blog's fourth live chat - today is an even bigger one: I'm stoked to announce that the FIRST gameplay trailer for Wolverine has been released, and viewable below!
Check out the Wolverine game you heard about at New York Comic-Con - the most brutal, most bad-ass portrayal of everyone's favorite X-Man.
Skydiving into his foes, taking impossible risks, using regeneration and feral sense in the way only Wolvey can...the entire team at Raven has focused on one thing above all: true-to-character authenticity. Whether or not you're a comic fan, that translates into epic gameplay.
Alright dudes - hope you enjoyed the game's trailer "Uncaged". I'll be around tomorrow at noon where you can ask me about the game, what you saw in the trailer, and even more importantly, what you didn't. Trust me when I say...
252w ago - Welcome to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. One could talk about the various nuances of its gameplay, but overwhelmingly only one aspect of the game truly stands out: it's violent. Really, really violent.
The insatiable rage of Wolverine reminds us quite a bit of another angry video game protagonist: God of War's Kratos. But the similarities between these two games don't end there.
The combat is very reminiscent of Sony's game; many of the moves and combos in the game look quite similar. One particular move - a spin attack - has a very obvious counterpart in Sony's game.
Wolverine has access to a number of brutal grabs and finishing moves. Just like the Spartan warrior, he'll rip enemies in half, tear off their limbs, and skewer them on various sharp objects in the environment. God of War is a great model to follow, but Wolverine manages to feel even more visceral.
Take, for example, the representation of Wolverine's health. His character model reflects all the damage he's taken. If he gets shot, you'll see a bullet in his body. If he gets cut, you'll see a giant gash. After a furious firefight, you can see clear into his body, with exposed organs and bone. It's rather gruesome, but it really emphasizes Wolverine's incredible ability to regenerate. You'll see his body heal in...
