Today, Insomniac announced they were working on a Wolverine game for PlayStation 5. There are no details beyond that at the time of this writing, và I imagine that we’re now going lớn head into an information blackout while Insomniac works on the game & gets more ready khổng lồ show at the next big sự kiện down the road, but the announcement alone is enough to lớn get people amped for a Wolverine đoạn phim game. But if you need something to help pass the time, I recommend digging your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 out of the closet & finding a used copy of 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

You’re not wrong that the movie the trò chơi is tied lớn is awful. This is one of those surprising instances where the video game surpasses the movie tie-in, & Raven Software managed it by basically making a Wolverine game as if it were God of War. While it’s not trying to lớn hide its influence, it doesn’t need to. When you’re playing a Wolverine game, you want khổng lồ hack and slash và be violent. X-Men Origins: Wolverine lets you lean into that more than any adaptation of Wolverine thus far with maybe the exception of Logan. But if you want the pure adrenaline rush of Wolverine absolutely destroying people, you can’t really go wrong with the simple pleasures this trò chơi provides.

The trò chơi lets you know off the bat how gory it’s going khổng lồ be when Wolverine hops on a helicopter, pulls the pilot out through the cockpit window, and then decapitates him on the spinning blades above. That’s the kind of game this is, và it’s devilishly fun. It’s also got a nice attention to lớn detail with Wolverine getting damaged & bloody, & then being able lớn heal up if you just pause và wait since that’s Wolverine’s healing ability.

The story is whatever, but it works well enough to lớn get you from setting lớn setting. No one is really demanding heartfelt fealty lớn the cinematic wonder that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, so that frees the trò chơi up to lớn just be bonkers and do whatever it needs to vị to send Wolverine from one location to lớn another as he wrecks hordes of faceless goons. I don’t know if Insomniac’s trò chơi will be as ridiculously violent as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but honestly, it should be. Wolverine is a violent character. That’s part of his appeal, and while Marvel may be a bit more careful with their licenses these days (the 2009 game really feels lượt thích Raven was getting away with something), I hope that they & Insomniac allow Wolverine to really engage his bloodlust rather than just chopping up robots or punching out guys. Basically, I need a Wolverine game to be rated “M”, not “T”.

Yes, the graphics are of their era, and like I said, the game is very much a God of War knockoff, but if you can go into the game with that knowledge, you’re going to lớn have a blast. The new Wolverine game doesn’t have impossible shoes to fill, but it also can’t just waltz onto the scene lượt thích no one ever made a good Wolverine game before. It’s out there and it’s worth a playthrough, bub.
