Dude, this game is sick! Lunging from enemy to enemy, the controls are easy to figure out, the upgrades are simple to figure out, and the special attacks are awesome, especially once they are upgraded.
The only con I can see in this game, is that the story goes back and forth quite a bit, making for the storyline to become quite confusing. Other than that, definitely rent this game!

Movie tie-ins suffer badly under review but this game doesn't need a movie behind it to make it a blast to play.
This is a perfect action game for those people who aren't die hard gamers. You can pretty well button mash your way thru the game, at least on the default difficulty. But the game rewards the skilled player with flashy combos and action movie style combat. By mashing, you will still finish the game, but by playing well, you really get the feeling of what Wolverine is capable of.
This game is good all over, with only small complaints to be had. Near walls or in confined areas the camera can be an issue, leaving you unable to see yourself and attacking enemies. Certain platform puzzles suffer from twitchy control response.
Level ups are mostly pointless since you'll end up leveling pretty much everything. Could do with just giving you new attacks rather than selecting power ups. On the upside the checkpoints are frequent and well placed to keep even tricky sections from having to be repeated over and over if you die.
The downside is little replay value. It's fun enough you will probably play it more than once, but the story and pathfinding will be identical. Combat is so good though that on a second play through you'll wish for shorter cutscenes to get to the action.
The cutscenes, voice acting, and game adapted story are well above the standard for movie tie in games.
The violence is incredibly over the top, with blood and gore everywhere, which most people expect from combat with a guy that has two foot metal claws.
One of the best rentals in the action genre to come along for awhile. From the casual gamer to the die hard, whether you see the movie or ever read a comic book or not, this game is absolutely worth playing for anyone with a console.
