    If I had a chance to play this during the years I was a complete Wolverine fanatic I would have passed out from pleasure overload. No kidding... This is the one of the finest comic book games to date.
  2. Could have been so much more than what it turned out to be. GenePool Software should have delayed this game a month to iron out the AI, camera control, and other issues that this game had from time to time.
  3. There are enough secrets in here to keep you busy for at least another play through. Add that to the list of characters from the comic books and you’ve got yourself a great buy.
  4. It’s difficult to knock Wolverine’s Revenge too much because it does offer some neat ideas, but unfortunately GenePool has seemingly forgotten about the fundamentals and left us with little to get excited about after the brief initial interest.
  5. A lot of the levels suffer from trial and error gameplay, where you have to do a series of things correctly or else you're forced to start over at the beginning of the level. While this might be okay for two or three tries, some stages may take a lot of tries before you get through, leading to excessive frustration.

    Playing it is slightly more fun than swallowing a lawn mower. [July 2003, p.72]

    The combo-heavy action sequences are tedious, the stealth controls are sloppy. [June 2003, p.54]

    What can I say? Between the cool storyline and the jaw dropping strike combos, this game is a must have in my book.

    overall the game is fun, but suffers from some rather seious shortcomings that prevent this from becoming an almost-awesome game. the camera overall the game is fun, but suffers from some rather seious shortcomings that prevent this from becoming an almost-awesome game. the camera contols are terrible, as the camera will jump around like an ADD kid on a sugar rush. also, some of the dialogue is a little headache-inducing, especially in scenes that are particularily difficult and that have to be replayed a half-dozen times. but the game does offer a healthy challenge, has some neat features, and nicely balances between stealth- and brawl- action. a definite rental, and a good buy if you can find it for a good price.
