Mean Machines (Dec, 1994)
Almost as sharp and tough as an Adamantium claw, Wolverine is worthy of any lycanthrope, or comic fan's time and money.
Game Players (Jan, 1995)
Initially, I didn't like this game - but the more I played, the more addicted I got. The comic book storyline gives it a great feel. If you liked X-Men, you're gonna love this one!!!
Play Time (Mar, 1995)
Mit einem reichhaltigen Schlagrepertoire muß sich der Wolfsmensch durch eine Reihe von extrem langen Levels prügeln. Das Leveldesign ist konventionell und bietet eine gute Grafik, aber schwache Sounduntermalung. Letztendlich sind einige unfaire Stellen (viel zu kurzes Zeitlimit) das Hauptmanko des Spiels.

Ich wurde auch (wie immer) diesmal nicht “enttäuscht“. Selten bietet sich einem ein derart einfallsloses und langweiliges Leveldesign (beide Versionen). Während Ihr bei der Sega-Version unter grauenvoller Musikbegleitung (für Marvel-Fans: unbedingt im Optionsmenü abschalten, sonst droht Ohrenfäulnis!) nur hin und wieder auf einen Gegner trefft, wartet die Nintendo-Variante mit recht eingänglichem Sound, dafür aber Gegnern an der Grenze der Unspielbarkeit auf: Mit Fäusten gegen MG- Salven anzukämpfen soll selten Spaß machen. Sehr gut gefallen hat mir aber das metallisch glänzende “Game Over“, das bei mir künftig für alle Marvel-Spiele dieser Bauart gilt!
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 AI 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.
GamePro (US) (Feb, 1995)
The number of levels in this game is pretty hard to determine; most players won't be able to clear the first level. Is the game hard to beat or just hard to play? Both. When the highlights of a game are it's mediocre graphics and sounds, that should trigger an immediate red flag. You need this game like you need a adamantium claw in the head.

To close things out here, Wolverine: Adamantium Rage certainly isn't the worst game to star or feature Marvel's merry mutant. While it looks pretty good on the surface, its design flaws are what kills the game from being anything close to as enjoyable as it could and should have been. There's nothing wrong with a good challenge, but what Wolverine offers is so cheap and unforgiving that you'll probably toss your controller, system, and cartridge against the wall in frustration before you even attempt to take on the game's first boss. If you want a video game that treats Wolverine right, you'd better look elsewhere, because this sure isn't it.
