Review: Wolverine Uncaged

I finally beat it. I can't say that it was a long journey, totally roughly 4 hours or so to complete it (albeit not at 100%, but pretty darn close to it). I'm not exactly a fan of movie tie-in games, hell for the most part I avoid them at all costs; it's almost a given they are a stinkbomb and a waste of time. Wolverine, however, left me pleasantly surprised.

To start, the graphics are great. Not photo-realistic great, but good enough that I let out a nice "Wow" the first time I saw it in full HD glory. The visceral tone of the game fit in great with the art style; I barely noticed the sometimes bland environments after they were stained with the blood of my foes. The use of flashbacks in the game brought me back to certain environments a few more times that I could have hoped for, although the developers did a good enough job of changing the mechanics of the game in those situations that it doesn't warrant any sort of points off. The ability to unlock new outfits is nice, but it kinda ruins it when the cutscenes don't match up with the outfit your wearing.

Overall, it's tough to recommend this game for $60. Yes, it is an excellent game, but the lack of real replay value and short campaign length leave me torn. For now I'd say it's best left as a rental; once the price drops, I'll be recommending it to everyone I know.

Overall Score: 4 out of 5
