5 reasons Wolverine the video game is better than the movie

Wolverine vs. Wolverine: Here are five reasons why the video game version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine is better than the movie.

1. Blood and Guts with a Severed Head on Top.

Within the first few seconds of booting up X-Men Origins: Wolverine, you'll know how relentlessly gruesome this bloodbath of a video game is. In the game's opening, Wolvie uses his triple-bladed Ginsus to butcher several soldiers, stabbing one through his skull and going Jack the Ripper-stab crazy on the bellies of two others. Wolverine then gets a shotgun blast to his torso, and the camera gives us an up close look at the gaping hole in him, which begins to fill up with flesh and muscle.
Mind you, this is all within the first couple of minutes of the game. You can also behead enemies, hack off their arms and legs, use your claws as a human-eating blender, and even ram your claws into their chests, slicing downward and splitting them open like a fish.
If you couldn't tell, Wolverine is a Mature-rated game while hardly a drop of blood is shown in the film, which has a PG-13 rating.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
