  • Summary: Decades ago, a secret orgainzation brainwashed you and implanted a virtually unbreakable adamantium skeleton into your body. Now, as Wolverine - the X-Men's most dangerous weapon - you've discovered you were also implanted with a deadly virus that will kill you within the next 48 hours unless the antidote is found. 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. Seemed kind of weird at first, being that this character is such an “in your face” type of fighter, but the whole stealth thing works and ends up creating a whole new facet to the gameplay.
  2. 73
    The game is at its absolute best when subjecting Wolvie to the stealthier, more cerebral challenges of the day and at its worst when challenging him with action-packed triple teams and showers of gunfire.
  3. A disappointment. Though the gameplay is okay, it's nothing special, and despite the awesome license this game possesses, it’s sure to grate on anyone after a few hours.
  4. Fundamental gameplay mistakes and atrocious designs run rampant through every inch of this miserable PlayStation 2 application. [June 2003, p.104]
  5. It's unnaturally hard, with save points so few and far between, you'll definitely relate to Wolverine when he goes into a Berserker Rage. [July 2003, p.120]
  6. There are some good ideas here, but the lack of detail, soft collision (Wolvie sinks ankle-high into any raised surface), murky control and low poly counts make Logan a dull boy. [June 2003, p.58]
  7. There's no way I could recommend buying this wallet draining mutant. While the heart of the character is here, the brain is not.

    If your an X-Men fan than you will be able to look past this games flaws, like the bad graphics, and awful voice acting, and the bad AI, but the main problems with it are that you feel underpowered, which is a disappointment considering when you want to play as Wolverine you want to feel powerful, like you can really do some damage with your super sharp claws, but instead you feel like you attacking enemies with butter knives, and there's the fact that it's just not fun to play, it had some really great ideas but they were poorly handled in this game, a huge let down.
