X-Men Origins: Wolverine PC Review

X-Men Origins: Wolverine PC Review

Hi guys! Today I will talk about X-Men Origins: Wolverine. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

X-Men Origins: Wolverine PC Review


The story of the game is expanding upon the story of the movie that this game is based on. It basically follows the story of the movie adding some new storylines that weren’t in the movie. If you have seen the movie then you will know the story of the game except for a few side stories that have been added to make the game longer.

The game’s story isn’t something special that will astonish you, it is pretty average, neither good nor bad, but trust me you won’t mind at all once you play the game.


Now comes the good part and the reason why you should play this game. When this game was released nobody expected a movie tie in-game to be this good, because movie tie in games were pretty bad or at best average during that time.

The combat in this game is extremely fun and brutal. You chop people in half, you cut off limbs and blood is spilled. Basically, this game did justice to the character and didn’t censor anything.

When you get hit you see the damage in Wolverine’s body, you can even see his bones, and when you regenerate you can see his wounds heal which is a very nice touch, making the game feel more realistic.

As for the enemies, there are a lot of different types of enemies, but I have to say the fighting gets a little repetitive after a certain point. The good thing is that the combat is so visually appealing with execution moves (that you are able to do if you grab an enemy) and also the brutal cutting of limbs(that I mentioned before) that make the combat look realistic and keeps you entertained even if the combat is a little repetitive.

As the game progresses and you kill enemies you gain points to unlock skills. There are a lot of skills you can unlock, and they give more variety to the combat. Some of them are passive and some are active.

The difficulty of the game is a little average in my opinion. The game isn’t as challenging as I would like it to be, but this comes down to personal preference. Personally I like games to be dark souls level of challenging and this one isn’t at that level, but that doesn’t mean that the combat isn’t fun and that there aren’t any challenging moments, it just never forces you to fight the same enemy for hours because he is too difficult to beat.


The game came out 10 years ago, so the graphics are dated, but they are still very good even comparing them to today’s standards. In my opinion, if you aren’t a person who wants the best graphics possible in their games then you won’t have a problem with the graphics.

As for the customization, there are some outfits of Wolverine that you can unlock and use them, but I prefer the default game clothes because they work better when Wolverine takes damage and you see the damage on his body.

Besides those outfits, there aren’t any other customization options.

Final Thoughts

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a good game and a solid experience. The combat is very entertaining and fun, the story is ok for what it is, and the visuals are as good as they could if you consider the time of the game’s release. If you like X-Men or Wolverine then this game is a must-have, also if you like hack and slash combat with beheadings and limbs flying then this game is for you.

Final Verdict

Storyline: 7.8

Gameplay: 8.4

Visuals: 7.8

General Rating: 8.0
