For more than 30 years, Marvel’s Wolverine has been among comic’s most popular heroes, and as with most popular do-gooders (just ask Batman and Superman), video games has not treated him too kindly. From the NES LJN nightmare to his lackluster outing in Wolverine’s Revenge, it seems that only recently, with the excellent X-Men Origins: Wolverine game, that the industry finally got it right. Somewhere in all that mess lies Wolvie’s only solo Genesis outing, Wolverine: Adamantium Rage, a title that suffers from unintuitive control and some questionable difficulty. Still itchin’ for a scrap after that description? Then read our full review for all the flamin’ details, bub.

I love super heroes. As cool as they are, they’re even better when they team up, and any fan worth his/her salt was most likely salivating when Spider-Man/X-Men in Arcade’s Revenge. The prospect of the web slinger teaming up with Marvel’s marvelous mutants for a video game romp seems to be the stuff of dreams.

A great title that makes good use of its license, X-Men 2: Clone Wars is proof that not all licensed games have to suck. Read the review and see why.
