The Story of this Video Game is unknown.



X2: Wolverine's Revenge is a action-adventure game released in 2003 to coincide with the release date of the film X2: X-Men United. It was the first title to feature Wolverine in a starring role since Wolverine: Adamantium Rage. The player helps Wolverine claw his way past the heavily guarded areas of Department H to piece together fragmented clues to Wolverine's murky past and, more importantly, to save his life. The game was released as a promotional tie-in to X2 but featured an original story by famed comic book writer Larry Hama, and does not take place in the continuity of the film series. Wolverine has 48 hours to find an antidote to a deadly Shiva virus circulating in his bloodstream and the clues point to Department H's Weapon X facility, the Canadian fortress where he had his skeletal structure fused with adamantium.


The action is played from a third-person perspective as players fight a number of armored soldiers, mutant creatures, and archenemies such as Sabretooth, Magneto, Wendigo, Lady Deathstrike, and Juggernaut. While Professor X is able to assist Wolverine with powers of telepathy, the surly comic book hero must ultimately carry out his adventure alone. To that end, players must tap into Wolverine's unique talents to overcome all manner of obstacles. Wolverine will be able to hunt and track his prey using his heightened sense of smell and ability to detect body heat. As Wolverine makes his way through the military compounds, he will need to avoid defense systems and guards, and find ways into locked rooms to discover the information he needs to survive.

When engaged in combat, Wolverine can retract and release his adamantium claws at any time to perform slashing attacks, aerial combos, and a number of different throws. The strike moves used in battle are the Combat Strike Moves, which initiate a short cut-scene where Wolverine attacks the enemy.

In addition to Combat Strikes, there are special Stealth Strikes, Situation-Specific Strikes and Boss-Specific Strikes which become available at certain points in the game. Stealth Strikes are used to take out enemies silently. For example, Wolverine can do a wall-hug to creep up on an enemy and stab him before he can sound the alarm.

Wolverine's unusual healing ability allows him to withstand punishment that would kill an average human being, but he can become wounded over time. Sustaining major injuries triggers a feral rage, imbuing Wolverine with greater strength and the ferocity to take on multiple foes at once. Veteran actor Mark Hamill provides the voice-over for Wolverine, while Patrick Stewart reprises his film role as Professor X.
