Wolverine Adamantium Rage
Everyone's favorite mutant is now slicing his way through his toughest foes in one of the most action-packed Genesis games around. Through a story line shown in cinema displays, travel around the globe on a series of quests, each one more dangerous than the last.
You will meet up with the deadliest mutants around, including Sabretooth and the time-traveling Fitzroy. Even the lethal Lady Deathstrike will make an attempt to end Logan's (Wolverine) life. If you love the X-Men comics or the cartoon, it's a sure bet you'll like this cart.
Wolverine was a big disappointment. The graphics were only average, and the sheer number of instant hits made this one frustrating at best. Getting killed by the little girl without a chance of avoiding her was even worse. Wolverine controlled very poorly, and the animation was very simple. I just could not enjoy this game at all. Even if you are an X-Men fanatic, pass this cartridge up. It's not worth playing.
Wolverine comes off decent in this latest adventure. First off, this game is pretty darn tough, especially with the amount of instant hits. There's plenty of challenge here. The levels are very intricate, requiring you to go through various parts multiple times. Wolverine has plenty of moves at his disposal as well. The only real problem is that the control gets very quirky, especially when trying to move around on stairways.
First and foremost, what happened to the control? Wolverine is in serious need of a good dose of play control! The apparent lack of it can really test your skill, patience and the strength of your controller. I found out mine wasn't so durable. I'll say that the graphics are finely done, as are the music tracks, but the poor play control just totally overwhelms the positive aspects of the game. A poor game for a great superhero.
For those of you looking for a challenge, here it is. This is one tough game that would give the real Wolverine a tough time. The enemies fight with superior Al, and the levels are very big and complex. Graphically, it looks really good, and Wolverine has some good moves. However, the control can be a bit of a problem at times. I would recommend this to Wolverine fans but others might get frustrated with it.
X-fans remember Wolverine's debut as the would-be assassin of the Hulk. They've followed his career as a Ninja in Japan and a Canadian secret agent. Now Logan's got his own Genesis game in Wolverine: Adamantium Rage from Acclaim. He suspects that his memories are implanted; the X-team's most notorious enemies may be responsible. To get past them, he uses his trademark slash and kick moves, along with some new mar-tial-arts maneuvers. The game play is tough, with little margin for error. It's also a bit repetitious. As for graphics, Wolverine looks suitably fearsome. And the rock tunes might just whip you into a rage.
