4.0 out of 5 stars Action packed and plenty of ketchup 4 Oct 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly, this is no shoddy movie tie-in, rushed into production at the 11th hour to coincide with the permiere. Raven have obviously been developing this in advance and the quality shows.

The developers have based the game style heavily on God of War. This is certainly no bad thing, Kratos and Wolverine are not a million miles apart in nature. The action is frantic and brutal, easily trumping God of War in the claret stakes. Arms, legs and heads come flying off in the heat of battle. The controls are deceptively simple with just a single button for melee attack and another for a throw, but this is compensated by the lunge attack, special power attacks and the ability to use background objects to eliminate your enemies swiftly by impaling then on a spike, throwing them into a giant fan or simply skewering them on the raised forks of a warehouse truck. Throw in Wolverine's ability to deflect projectiles with his claws and counter melee attacks and there is more than enough in the combat to keep it from becoming repetitive.

In terms of story, it follows the key scenes from the movie without becoming too tied to the storyline. All the key boss fights from the movie are reproduced in grand style (the Deadpool fight is real bruiser) with most of the movie cast reprising their roles. Throw in a few sentinels, some Wendingos and you will have as much trouble as you can handle. The level design is excellent and the momentum is relentless. The difficulty is nicely balanced, constantly upping the ante without smothering the player - Wolverine's ability to regenerate allows you time to find a winning strategy against particular foes during the battle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wolverine uncaged 22 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's a fun game about a very admirable character. Playing Wolverine could never be less than fun. The only thing I did not like much about it is that it's very repetitive. You just move from killing one bad guy to another untill the end of the game. The "bosses" are the ones where you have the most fun playing, because you need to think and discover the right way to fight them. The rest is pretty redundant. Still, I had plenty of fun playing it, and would recommend to anyone who likes the movie and what the character stands for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shredding 25 Aug 2009
By Michael
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is straightforward in what you have to do, and that is, play through the story in a rage tearing people apart as you go. And if your preferred manor of entertainment IS to dismember and disembowel everyone your size or 500 time bigger and be downright cynical as you do it, i think this is the game for you!!!
SNIKT!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything I want from a Wolverine Game 3 Jan 2010
By J.S.
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this based on the reviews of others. I assumed that it would be the game version of the recent Movie. While some of the story line is similar, for the most part it is a completely separate storyline.

The game focuses in two main time frames, when he was grafted with the Adamantium, and three years previously in the operation in Africa.

As you progress through the game you gain more abilities that can be used on your "victims" (enemies), these range from shredding people to decapitation. I even managed to cut the legs off an enemy. When Wolverine is injured by fire, bullets, knives, or impaled on an object, it is great to see the wounds healing. You can also use Feral senses which allow you to see things you normally wouldn't see.

You fight a few different bosses, most of which are the same basic character so easy enough to defeat.

The best missions for me were

The Helicopter missions - Diving from Helicopter to Helicopter ripping them apart.
The Sentinel mission - Fighting a 200 foot Sentinel. (before that mission it was creepy walking past it each time)
Fighting the Blob in the Supermarket - It's almost like a rodeo.
The last African mission - You pretty much fly through it.
Fighting Gambit - By far one of the hardest bosses to defeat.

I was a small bit disappointed with the ending, but overall it was a great game. Truly enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody, Brutal, X-ellent 3 May 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ever get tired of trying your best conserve your ammo? Of trying your best tactics to get around those annoyingly hard enemies? Ever just want to run into a bunch of guys and make a nice bloody mess as your fingers get sore with button mashing?

Yeah? Well this is the game for you.

Based on the kid-friendly movie, this game takes you beyond it and sucks you into a violent and brutal world in the truest Wolverine game ever made. Think 'God of War' with adamantium claws. Yeah, I'm not going to lie, it can get pretty repeptative, but so do all third person punch ups, right? What to do: think of someone you really dislike, your neighbour, boss whatever. Turn on the game and pretent that every enemy you encounter is them in pixal form. You'll have a blast! :)
