Rating summary: This is an action game based on the characters and events of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie. Players assume the role of the clawed mutant Wolverine as he traverses a variety of locations to battle enemy soldiers, robots, and other mutants in frequent hand-to-hand combat. Players use claws to slash, stab, impale, and dismember enemy characters resulting in splashes and stains of red blood. Close-up camera angles and slow motion effects accentuate the violence of some finishing moves: enemies' arms are cut off, torsos are split in half, heads are pulled out in dramatic fashion. During one sequence, Wolverine grabs an enemy and thrusts his body head-first into rotating helicopter blades. Wolverine also performs "berserker" moves that enable players to attack/kill several enemies at once, slashing bladed claws at a frenetic pace. Some profanity (e.g., "sh*t" and "a*s") can be heard in the dialogue.
Unleash the razor sharp adamantium claws, feral instincts, and mutant regeneration powers of the world’s fiercest superhero in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and uncage the story of how the ultimate weapon was created. The team at Raven Software has dedicated Wolverine’s development to unstoppable, true-to-character authenticity. Take on impossible odds and exact vicious revenge in the year’s most satisfying action game.
