The new X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie is out and while I haven’t seen it yet, judging from the preview clips and trailers I’ve seen it’s pretty much guaranteed to be a success. I’m not alone in that belief either, the studios are already heavily into the merchandising aspect with lots of stuff already on sale and little doubt that there will be plenty more to come.
For example there’s already a game out based on the movie, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged Edition“.
While I’ve not been one to spend a lot of time with games and I especially don’t make it a habit of chasing after new ones, This is one of those exceptions that are worth getting right away. Especially if you like the classic “hack & slash” type games.
Given his regenerative mutant healing ability, a skeleton of adamantium and of course, the adamantium claws, Wolverine is without doubt, the best of the hack & slash crowd. Unlike would be slasher greats of the past, the more you go after him, the more his rage builds and that of course makes him even deadlier than before.
In fact, I’d love to see a sequel of “Dawn of The Dead” that pits Wolverine against a world full of zombies who want nothing more than to eat his brain. (good luck chewing adamantium!)
Then there’s the classic Idea of Wolverine vs Freddy Krueger. Now THAT would be an epic battle of incredible proportions! Freddy powered by fear from his victims, Wolverine powered by pure rage. both practically invulnerable in their own ways. Both have a weak spot the other can use against them.
I don’t suppose they’ll ever make it but I’d still like to see it anyway.
