Ok this game has one word Awesome. it has all the gore violence that you can expect from Wolverine. The graphics are 9, sound 10, gameplay 10, blood and moves 100. althrought out the story it takes you back to the jungle mission as a flashback to play a misson. Bosses are easy and ripping apart enemys is also easy. You can either rush through gameplay or play calmly. In feral sense you can go toward your objective or see green color things to impale enemys some enemys cant be killed normall easily so impale them. this game just simply rocks and there are NO bad things about it. this game is a rent if wanna play one time but BUY if you wanna keep playing.

Camera is the deadliest foe

The good:
Great graphics
Good story line that doesn't follow the movie exact, so it actually makes you want to watch the cut scenes
VERY violent. I was actually shocked at how violent this game is.
You've got several moves and combos, and attacking multiple enemies makes for a bloody good time.
There are some puzzles, although most are easy, it breaks up the tedium of this game being a button masher.
COSTUMES! You can get secret costumes like the original brown costume, yellow costume, or weapon X. Even better you have to fight a Wolverine clone to win them, and I have to say those were some of my favorite fights
The bad:
After you get to a higher experience level and rank up, most enemies become almost too easy to kill. Dying after only one or two hits.
The amount of different enemies are lacking. Now I'm not saying it's as bad as some games where you have one enemy with a knife, one with a gun, but as good as they did the enemies on this game I would have loved to see more styles.
Bosses. Eventually they all have one way of getting killed. And, after a while it gets tedious pulling off the same move 20 times.
THE CAMERA! Probably the worst part of the game. It will move at will. Which for most of the game isn't a problem. But some parts where you are in close combat with many units, it's hard to tell where you're at and what direction you need to be attacking. Even worse, the last boss battle I died 5 times alone because the camera angle would change MID JUMP and of course I didn't have time to correct my jump direction and I fell to my death.

So, the bad is not a deal breaker by anymeans. I would even suggest buying it, except I myself am not into playing a game after I beat it usually. And, for being loosely based off a movie, it's probably one of the best movie based games ever.

Origins is definately one of the most fun games I've played in a while but however is does have negative points. After a while the game does start to become repatative there are only so many ways to kill each enemy before you have seen them all. But the game does do a pretty good job of keeping it entertaining although it gets repetative I personally never get tired of picking someone up and impaling them on a spike or a forklift. They also put a wide variety of enemies for you to fight in the game some more challenging than others. There are there are the major factions in the game each having regular enemies, advanced enemies, and a giant (Leviathan, W.E.N.D.E.G.O Prototype,Mark V1 protoype) all have a special way to be killed. It also has some puzzles to get to your next objective some can be challenging others can be quite simple but most of them are time and you have to complete them before time runs out or you will have to redo it. Overall I would recomend a buy for this game its fun and it keeps you entertained especially if you are a fan of blood and gore.
