  1. 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]
  2. Controlling Wolverine during combat can prove difficult, especially when there are multiple enemies onscreen simultaneously.

    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. Doesn't bring anything really cool to the table in terms of gameplay, but if you're a fan of the X-Men and looking for a game that really fleshes out Wolverine's life, then this may be worth checking out.
  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. For all its problems, the single most grating aspect of Wolverine's Revenge is its sound.
  7. 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.

    Something of a tragedy. It is a game hindered by far more than just bad graphics; controlling “the X-Men’s most dangerous weapon” is far from fun, and borders on infuriating.
  9. 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]

    Yes, it may take you years to beat if you're a little kid like I was when I bought the game. But no one can deny it's really exciting to playYes, it may take you years to beat if you're a little kid like I was when I bought the game. But no one can deny it's really exciting to play as Wolverine when there are so many cool features. The graphics are very decent, and the story is just great. The controls are a bit difficult the whole time, and the boss fights are really hard sometimes. However, the "strike" moves are really helpful and very praised. Anyway, I just think this is pretty great. Full Review »

Basically suffers the same problem as the Spidey games.... expecting you to fight off camera enemies while you are looking at yourself from the frony. Probably plays better on a 20 button console, but give the Pc version a miss Full Review »

    Could be a fun game on PC. But the combination of being hard to control and the fact you can't save until the end of each level makes Could be a fun game on PC. But the combination of being hard to control and the fact you can't save until the end of each level makes going thru the same thing time and time again until you get to the part you can't get die then get to start the whole thing over again. I wish I could get my money back. Full Review »
