It’s rare for đoạn Clip games based on movies lớn be any good and it’s even more rare that the game’s quality surpasses that of the movie. The game even has almost twice the Metacritic score. Part of this chất lượng has khổng lồ vị with the having extra time given to lớn the developer, which isn’t always the case with licensed games.

Insomniac hasn’t spilled any meaningful details about its Wolverine game so it’s unclear what it will look or play like. But those looking forward to what Insomniac will vì chưng with a solo Logan game should scavenge through some bargain bins in the meantime to try & find Raven’s solid 2009 action title. X-Men Origins: Wolverine may have been one of the worst X-Men films and while the game has a similarly bad story and doesn’t push the action genre forward, it at least offers a more true & fun look at the iconic character over its silver screen counterpart.
