Default X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Anyone else pick this up? The game is a lot of fun IMO. I've only played for an hour or so but it runs great at 1680x1050 16xAF. There really aren't any graphic options which is lame but still a good game in all.

Video review at GT:

It is developed by Raven Software using Unreal Engine. There is a demo out on 360 for those that like to test it. No PC demo.

Thanks for the tip, I love these bloody beat'em up games.

Its a standard hack and slash with Wolverine at the helm. Dunno these get boring after about 15 mins. Played for a bit today, its ok.

I personally love these games when they got good combat moves and flow with a feasible AI and difficulty level. The reward when learning special moves and executing your own combos and attack patterns instead of just button mashing can be really great, like in DMC4.
