What can I say. Simple games are simply awesome. There's not a lot of gameplay mechanics you have to memorize to execute stylish finishers here. Even the achievements are done swiftly and in progression of the game. I'm not saying that being simple is bad by any means! This is a good thing!
The camera angles are great, I never felt out of place. The boss fights were fun and challenging! The story is of course tied to the movie, but not completely. I won't spoil anything.
For those that hold a games reputation to the graphics department, let's just say you won't be disappointed.
The animations are fluid, sound is superb.
I know what you're thinking.. Aren't most movie games supposed to suck?!
Well not this one, I for one like it and I believe a lot of people will appreciate the simpleness of the game.

This game is a blast for as long as it lasts. I beat it in four days, but time with it may be longer, since I rushed through it. The play mechanics (including Wolvie's lunge move, which was my favorite) are rock solid, the presentation's great (this is the first time I've seen a game represent Wolvie's healing factor visually, with all of the gore that goes with that), and if you like the character or visceral action games at all, you will definitely enjoy this.
Like most beat 'em up/brawler games, it can get repetitive. You can only fight the same rock monster in the jungle levels so many times before it gets tedious, for instance. But there enough bells and whistle (from upgrading your character to some epic, God of War style boss fights, and even some fun, non-Marvel pop culture reference based Easter Eggs that give you achie that actually give you achievements) that's really only a minor quibble.
This is a rare licensed game that isn't hamstrung by being tied to a big budget movie release. Definitely a must rent if you can get your hands on it.

i always rent the hack and slash games with my fingers crossed. They tend to have 1 of 3 things that make them unpleasant to me
1. repeatedly mashing one button melee attacks = boring
2. boss fights that seem near impossible
3. lots of jumping that unless perfectlly timed has you pulling your hair
wolverine i think has balanced these very well. I never got tired of leaping from enemy to enemy slashing my way to bosses ( who were challenging but your fight strategy quickly becomes clear)
and every failed jump didnt necessarily cause you to start all over again
the games graphics are good and i think the story line was better than the actual movie
i was pleasantly suprised with this game and highly recommend
