I remember playing the demo of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and finding it enjoyable. If you played the demo and became interested like me, then by all means play this game a try. I’d also recommend it generally speaking because it is a fun action game. If you want to buy it, I’d say $15-$20 is a fair price. Otherwise it's a rent.
The full game “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” also starts out like the demo. The cut-scenes are fine even if Logan looks a tad different than we’re used to. The story loosely followed the movie, like an alternating current, using some of the settings and all of the main characters [I believe]. The gameplay won’t get too complex - expect some platforming and light puzzles to enter the fray. I don't think one gains new combos, but you will gain rage abilities. You can level up in this game too, something for which was fun to look forward to. One could also find bonus perks called mutagens which also increase your chances of survival; I also liked the collection of dog tags – it rewarded players with experience for each one, so even players who are not interested in collecting have incentive to participate as well.
Expect to see a lot of Africa because you’ll have several levels take place there. The levels in general seemed a bit too long in my eyes. I’m not even sure how many levels there were: the game plays about the same in any setting so blurred the lines a bit. The voice acting was sufficient but not stellar, and a couple of boss fights were underwhelming – not many, but I found at least two fights to be less challenging than mini-bosses were… Speaking of which, mini-bosses were more pedantic & routine than challenging ~ pretty much a chore.
This was a good action game, but considering that the player is supposed to be Wolverine – it still needs work. At the end of the day, it cannot be a great Wolverine experience if foot soldiers take multiple combos from Wolverine’s claws. It's still a fun game, but not a true Wolverine experience.
The game was good. I was suprised of this game, i thought it wasnt suppose to be good. Activision made this game like prototype. Prototype is way better but wolverine is fun. They could of given a little more effort on it i would say its awsome. Like more high quality cutscenes. Still a good game, its fun using his claws and facing cool bosses. Bub you gotta check this out!

In a world where most Game adaptions of movies suck as bad as Movie adaption of games are(Super Mario Bros. Movie) One game rise above the rest..yet... a game that wasn't as popular as other games...X-Men Origins Wolverine Uncaged Edition was a game that was pretty fun to play yet it never had the popularity it deserved... even with the good rating... the game at a low price now in most Gamestop stores only used never new. It bloody good time of a game has some annoyances in areas but its an action game done right.
