A downloadable demo of Raven's film-inspired beat 'em up X-Men Origins: Wolverine is now available for Xbox Live Gold members via the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Hyped by its developer as "the movie game that finally does not suck," the title launched alongside the theatrical flick last Friday in PC, PS2, PS3, 360, Wii, DS and PSP form.

  • The game really is alot of fun. Gamespot puts it at a 7 and IGN at a 7.8 for a fair enough reason: it gets repetitive. However, I quite enjoy repeating things are fun things to do, so while I think the 7 rating is fair, it's not for reasons I won't play it.

    The game is really surprisingly gory, something I wasn't expecting. Maybe I'm too used to saturday morning X-Men cartoons and PG-13 movies and that the original Wolverine was bloody, but putting claws through heads and necks and ripping off arms with full bloody detail is pretty goddamn kickass.

    Controls are tight, sounds great (Jackman voices Wolverine) and other than standard 3rd person action camera issues, plays really well all around.
