Final Breakdown


They try, they really do - and while it's being a gorefest, it's plenty entertaining.


As far as next generation goes, they've done everything they possibly can for the graphics. No objections here.

Sound and Music:

Music ripped from the movie or well done; voice acting with most of the movie actors, and reasonable othe choices. No major issues here.


You're supposed to be an unstoppable killing machine. Don't expect a high difficulty level.

Controls and Interface:

The controls and interface are well done, but ultimately the control system is "too easy" - novice players are never going to try out the advanced stuff, and quite probably will get tired of falling back on the initial few combos to play the entire game.


Definitely worth a rental if you want a gorefest; only buy it if you're really, really enjoying it or you're a die-hard Wolverine fan.
