    The claws are out

    Unleash your inner beast on PlayStation 3 with X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

    Fans of the clawed Marvel superhero control the feral fighter in a no holds barred setting with the arrival of this brutal and hugely enjoyable tie-in to the blockbuster film, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The game features a story that mirrors the plot of the film while adding some new elements to bolster playing time. Wolverine's story shifts back and forth between the events that take place in the film and a search and destroy campaign in the jungle that reveals a lot about his mysterious past. As well as Logan's backstory, the past of those around him is revealed including his mutant teammates and William Stryker, the man responsible for turning Wolverine into the unstoppable force that he is by grafting Adamantium metal to his bones.

    Unstoppable force

    Being that Wolverine is an almost unstoppable force of nature with advanced regenerative healing powers, enemies will have a tough time trying to take you down as you slam into their bodies using an array of devastating attacks and finishing moves. However, if your health does deplete to zero, you will need to back off from the battle for a moment or two to allow Wolverine to heal himself. To reduce the time it takes to heal, you can upgrade Wolverine in the options menu using skill points you unlock and Mutagen powers hidden throughout the game.

    Using a combination of both the Square and Triangle buttons, Wolverine possesses light and heavy attacks that can be chained together to perform a series of claw swirling combo moves. As you progress through the game more and more moves become available including much more elaborate claw attacks and Fury moves such as a drilling manoeurve that can carve an enemy in two in an instant. The deeper you play through the story, the more tactical you will have to become to take down tougher enemies using a variety of moves rather than relying on simple attack combinations used earlier on in the game.

    One of the most important abilities Wolverine has at his disposal is a Lunge attack, which allows him to leap through the air, land on an enemy and perform a series of pounding combos. He can even lunge at enemies leaping through the air if you move fast enough, which can give you a great tactical advantage in battle especially against boss enemies such as Sabertooth, who you will encounter a number of times in the game.

    Challenge yourself

    Sabertooth won't be the only boss you'll have to take down, as Wolverine packs in a number of formidable foes including the card-throwing Gambit, the hulking mass Blob and a selection of other giant creatures including a molten rock monster and a skyscraper sized Sentinel in one of the game's most breathtaking battles, that begins on the ground and culminates high up in the skies.

    For devout Wolverine fans, the game also features a number of challenges which unlock various costumes from the character's comic book history including the Classic and Legendary outfits. To obtain these, players must keep a keen eye open for small Wolverine statues littered throughout the game's missions. Once you find them, you are then required to fight that version of Wolverine in a Challenge Room in order to unlock the outfit, which can then be donned any time you start the game.

    Packed from the outset with a large helping of action, huge boss fights, brain teasing puzzles and jaw-dropping environments, Wolverine is the comic book videogame fans have been clamouring for. For everyone else who likes their action in heavy doses, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the game for you. It's time to sharpen those claws.
