Over the past 20 years Wolverine has starred in some really bad games. There have also been some classics along the way like X-Men Arcade, Marvel Vs Capcom 2, X-Men Legends 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Although none of these really let you unleash the beast. X-Men 2: Wolverines Revenge did come close though, and was probably the best game to star Logan to date. Which is a bit of a shame as the game was just above average.
Luckily X-Men Origins: Wolverine has not just raised the bar; it has picked it up and thrown it as high up into the sky as possible. Raven Software have really done there homework, and the result is a game that the Wolverine character has deserved for such a long time.

As a result Raven Soft has made this game around those abilities first, so when you take damage in the game you actually see the character heal a short time later. You also have Wolverines feral senses helping you see things of interest you would otherwise miss..."
