  • Summary: Decades ago, a secret orgainzation brainwashed you and implanted a virtually unbreakable adamantium skeleton into your body.

Your future at risk, you must return to confront your past in an adventure that will take you back to the place you dread most of all - Alkali Lake. Time is running out. [Activision] Expand

  1. Controlling Wolverine during combat can prove difficult, especially when there are multiple enemies onscreen simultaneously.
  2. Its control niggles make it more suitable for console platforms, and it's nowhere near as enjoyable as last year's "Spider-Man" movie game. [July 2003, p.90]
  3. 65
    All this lame locking on, being stealthy, performing advanced moves with a single tap, dealing with a wretched camera system crap needs to go straight out the window fast.
  4. For all its problems, the single most grating aspect of Wolverine's Revenge is its sound.
  5. A sloppy console port... To top all the negative aspects, the game is rather short and, quite frankly, hardly worth its current $30 price tag.
  6. 40
    Unfortunately, for my rapidly dwindling sanity, the PC version not only retains the basic gameplay, erratic camera, and simplistic level design of the original, it tops off that witch's brew of gaming mediocrity with a whole passel of problems unique to the PC version.
  7. The gameplay, already uninspired and annoying on the consoles, is an uncontrollable mess on PC and not even worth it for fanboys. [Sept 2003, p.100]
