Wolvie game preview

01.06.2009

Electronic Gaming Monthly, a magazine I can hardly believe is still around (I was reading it in the very early 90s to read about upcoming Genesis games), recently took a trip behind the scenes of the upcoming video game based on X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE. I have played a bunch of the games that feature Wolverine (including "Wolverine's Revenge") and they all pretty much suck. Could this be the one they finally get right?

The graphics, that's Wolvie to the right, look pretty damn impressive and while gameplay isn't finished, it sounds like it'll be pretty cool. Activision-based Raven used "God of War," "Devil May Cry" and "Ninja Gaiden" as influences and according to EGM the game features "eye-opening bloodshed" that should surprise people who are used to seeing rather generic movie-spinoff games. Wolverine can apparently chop of the limbs of enemies, blast off flesh with a shotgun and even decapitate victims with one of his many moves. Sweet. Somewhere that 12-year-old nerd reading EGM in 1990 is pitching a tent in anticipation. Click here to head over and read more about the game and see an impressive gallery of screenshots.

To counter your Extra Tidbit, here's a runthrough... go to 2:00, and watch the EPIC battle with Sabretooth. Hilarious.

EGM will be history soon. and its a very sad day for the staff at 1up.com those guys are awesome.

anyways, this game will suck, just head over to 1up.com and read their latest preview.

the problem with this is that its based on the movie and it has a time constraint. it wont be good.

Yep, EGM's still around. I used to read it in the mid 90's to read about upcoming N64 and PSOne games. Man, good times.

I'll tell you what wasn't such a good time though, Wolverine:Adamantium Rage for the Super NES. That game sucked. As soon as you said "I have played a bunch of the games that feature Wolverine... and they all pretty much suck." I thought, wow, now there's something I can agree too. I remember one of the neighborhood kids who was a couple years older than me gave me his

I remember one of the neighborhood kids who was a couple years older than me gave me his copy of it once he realized it sucked, and he in turn had got it from one of his friends, who had got it from one of his friends... anyways, I remember I was like the fourth or fifth owner of that game and it had only been out for like two or three years at the time.

Could be cool..

I hope it's good---the other movie tie-ins featuring Wolverine (X2: Wolvie's Revenge and the X-Men 3 game) completely fucking sucked.

Wolvie on NES--now that was a blast! Even though the ending was just one mere still shot of Wolvie with his mask off and that's it--it was fun to play.

NICE!

Those are definitely good games to draw from and I'm glad they're not holding back. This sound sweet can't wait to hear more about it.
