ill be at NYCC. im VERY interested in the game. so all it means is that there will be a booth playing video of it from 10 AM to 7 PM? if it were 10 AM to 11 AM I would have thought it was a cool little presentation. itll probably be the stuff we already saw, that the non-hardcore fans havent yet seen but might be interested in.

I think these are just the time Marvel Activision games will show. I went here at these times and they showed mostly Marvel Alliance. Is there anyone who went, who knows what time they might be showing other games or is it random?

NYCC 09: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Hands-on
Prepare to lose your lunch… and limbs.
by Greg Miller



US, February 6, 2009 - It might be because the X-Men franchise has been marketed to gerneral audiences for so long, but for some reason, I wasn't expecting all the blood I saw while playing X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I mean, in the opening cutscene, some paramilitary types are hunting the hero, and one of the troopers puts his ear to the wall to try and figure out what Logan's doing on the other side.

Wolverine stabs through the wall and through the dude's head.

The death and dismemberment isn't limited to cinemas in Activision and Raven Software's title. I got to actually play the same jungle level Erik Brudvig got to see, and I was spilling gallons of plasma. X-Men Origins: Wolverine walks hand-in-hand with the upcoming feature film and lets you play through the events of the movie while adding plenty of flashbacks and back story. The jungle mission I stepped into started with Logan, Creed, and Stryker in a helicopter on their way to a mission "many years earlier." Apparently, this event will be hinted at in the movie as some kind of turning point for the group but won't ever be detailed. The helicopter takes a rocket to the tail, and Wolverine is falling through the air. Rather than have CGI do all the work, you're going to control Wolvie's impromptu, parachute-less skydive and try to guide him past the gunfire the enemy is throwing your way. When you get closer to the ground, Wolverine hones in on an enemy and uses his body as a landing pad.

From there, you get your kill on.

A brawler at heart, Wolverine's controls boil down to normal attacks, heavy attacks, throws, and counters. All are debilitating. At one point, Wolverine countered a foot soldier's attack and began stabbing him in the back. Another time, Logan lifted a baddie off the ground and stabbed him over and over in the chest. A final foe got his arms lopped off. Wolverine isn't playing around.

Players also have the "Quick Kill" option, which presented itself after you've started an attack. When the screen flashes, you need to tap the button you originally hit and then you'll destroy the bad guy. One had Wolverine stab a guy in the chest only to rip him in two when the screen flashed, and a another move had our hero bury his claws into a dude's jugular. There are even stealth kills.

Meanwhile, your health is being tracked on the meters in the upper-left corner of the screen. Yes, Wolverine can heal in this game, but you'll need to grab some cover or at least not be getting blasted by a squad of foes to take advantage of the ability. To balance the risk and reward, Raven has included a health bar that leads to Wolverine's vitals. As you take damage -- which is represented in real time, meaning you'll get to see Logan's shirt fall apart, his skin melt away to his adamantium skeleton, and so on -- the health bar will drop. If the bar is completely empty, Wolverine's vital organs are exposed. Represented by a beating heart on the HUD, this vital meter is your last chance to not get waxed and have to start over from the last checkpoint.

Now, the intuitive reader is probably asking a question right now -- "If Wolverine's getting his shirt shot off, does that mean he's only clothed for the first minute and a half of the game?" The answer, fair reader, is no; thanks to the game's leveling system, Wolverine's shirt reappears every time you get enough XP to move to the next level. Now, there are 40 levels for badassery for Wolverine to ascend through, and each grants him skill points to spend on combos and bonuses -- stuff such as the Rage meter, the third and final part of the on-screen HUD. The Rage meter fills as you kill, and when you hold down the shoulder buttons, your face buttons pop up as assigned super-moves of death that consume that Rage reserve. During my demo, Rage gave me access to a spin attack where Wolvie would spin around with his arms and claws out like a man-eating helicopter that beheads folks for fun.

Aside from all that, there's even more to this game. There are mutagens to find hidden throughout levels that Wolverine can equip to modify his healing factor, inner rage, and more. There are dog tags to collect off fallen opponents and hidden action figures to find for new costumes (yellow and blue spandex confirmed). Tapping up on the D-pad turns on Logan's Feral Sense, which makes the screen black and white but highlights ropes to climb, ledges to shimmy to, and enemies to chew on.


However, the costar to Wolverine in the X-Men Origins demo I played was none other than our hero's lunge attack. Using the shoulder buttons, you're able to target specific enemies and then leap through the air at them. This allows Wolverine to cover great distances and land claws first in people's mouths. During the demo, I saw Wolverine lunge from a ledge onto the front of a flying helicopter where he had to punch through the glass, dodge the pilot's gunfire, and disable the engine. Of course, Logan eventually ended up lifting the flyboy out of his seat and ramming his head into the spinning blades above. Another time, a mini-boss whose skin was on fire walked into the room and Wolverine lunged on top of him and started tearing him apart. Ever run around a room on fire while killing evil troops? It's pretty sweet looking.

If you can't get enough Wolverine, make sure you head over and check out my interview with Dan Vondrak, project lead on for Raven Software, where we talk Hugh Jackman's voice, whether this game will suck or not, and blood. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is set for a May 1, 2009 release and is supposed to pack 12 to 15 hours of game play that's 30 percent light puzzle solving and 70 percent ass kicking.

From my short time with the title, it seems like that 70 percent figure might be Raven low-balling you.

IGN: Are all the actors from the movie on hand to voice their characters?

Dan Vondrak: Yes, we got the actors to reprise their roles for the major characters in the title. Hugh Jackman, of course, is Wolverine. The guy was amazing to work with; we had thousands of lines for him to do and he wanted to get each one right. He really understands how important this character is to the fans – he was really into it and excited about the game. We also have Liev Schreiber as Victor Creed (a.k.a. Sabretooth) and Will I Am as John Wraith. It was awesome once we got all their voice-over into the game, really gives it the authentic feel.

Great article! This sounds like the most definitive Wolverine game ever so far. Another, it really is grea to know that all the actors from the films are voicing the characters in the game.

Sounds like it will replace the Punisher game for the Xbox as my guilty pleasure when disposing of enemies in gruesome ways.
