Some are already calling the Wolverine video game better than the Wolverine movie. Hey, actor Hugh Jackman is impressed with the game, too.
During production, Jackman was so dazzled that he had some of the video game dialogue shoehorned into the film script. "In fact I was able to bring some of the lines of dialogue from the game script into the movie, because I liked how well it was written — the game production overlapped with the film, so it was possible to make those changes," Jackman told Yahoo! Games.
According to Jackman, the game "vaguely" follows the movie's plot, but "it actually goes beyond that as well." He also points out that because a game is longer, it can explore subplots and develop characters that the movie didn't have enough time for. "The game expands on certain episodes in the film," said Jackman. "I don't want to give away any spoilers, but there are some sequences that the movie only touches on, which the game explores much more in-depth."
The video game version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine was released on May 1, coinciding with the theatrical movie release.
