This X-Men origins has the appeal from the movie? I mean, the storyline follows that same thing?

Well, yeah, sort of. The game has its own plot (which is not very strong), but it stays true to the movie. I wouldn't call it a story oriented game though. It excels in action, violence and visuals (like God of War).

That sounds better. I have never played a game based on a movie or something alike, given that I'd have not a point to play it at all. :D

IMO the game saved itself, story wise, by giving Nightcrawler a parentage that actually makes sense...

And the game was fun, even if a bit unfinished in places. Hopefully a sequel not bound by a film release will see the light of day.

Most movie-based games suck, but X-Men Origins Wolverine was pretty good. In fact, I'd even go far and say it was more fun than the movie (especially if you're a big fan of Wolverine).

@TT: Oh, and yeah, agreed. Hopefully we see a good and a more complete sequel to this game.

This Dragon Origins has a sequel now, eh? Is it worth buying the set then?

You're right.

I have not the slightest idea of where I found that crappy rumor. :rolleyes:

Disgraceful. Get Dragon Age: Origins for PC. It is million times better and the best game of the year 2009. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a cucumber wearing bikini and sunglasses.

B-) I'm getting interested on that game. People really talk loads of it. I didn't look for it, for once! I think if I stop reading previews and reviews a bit, I might get a bit more excited or surprised when playing a game.

Haven't found that game to buy around here yet, so I bought Resident Evil 5 for a start. Installed it and watched this and that without playing it yet. Getting excited. :oex:

I have found that other game...King's Bounty, on sale on a very unusual place for a very cheap price. I was thinking on giving it a try.

I recommend it, Tar. Armored Princess, especially.
