Yes, it's true that Raven's game shares none of the polish of Arkham Asylum. The world is a shadow of that created by Rocksteady, the lead character has less of a presence, the enemies are there to be cut down not hunted, and so on. Instead Wolverine relies on a couple of key ingredients to linchpin the adventure (similar to Wanted, although here Logan actually stays his welcome), elements which are so gripping Wolverine doesn't really need much else to be called a success. Spread the word: with four good tie-ins in two months, 2009 is the year of the licensed game. Now time to roll on the Aliens titles.
