About X-Men Origins: Wolverine

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is an epic action-adventure featuring a true-to-character Wolverine gameplay experience that takes gamers through and beyond the movie's storyline. Set in a variety of vivid real-world locales, the title challenges players to hone their animal instinct as they uncover hidden dangers, hunt and destroy enemies, and take on seemingly insurmountable situations while discovering the truth about Wolverine's tragic past. With razor-sharp adamantium claws unsheathed, the future X-Man enacts lightning-quick combat, evasive maneuvers, in-depth combo attacks, and an array of brutal finishing moves. Wolverine doesn't just deliver massive damage, either - he also takes it, thanks to his mutant regenerative power that heals him in real time right before the player's eyes.

  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine "Uncaged" gameplay trailer

    Wolverine is angry. We've inferred that from the following video, at least; we don't know many pacifists that would jump toward a flying helicopter, grab on, flip up to the front, then stab the pilot. His brutal moves reminds us of Kratos' combos, which is always a good sign. If the trail...
