Wulverblade is an excellent game. The mix of beat ‘em up with side-scrolling hack ‘n' slash creates a superb adventure that, added to its thrilling story and lovely artistic design, it stands as a great acquisition, even though it lacks long-term content.

Despite the setbacks, I enjoyed romping through Wulverblade's long levels with hordes of Romans and converted natives to slay in the name of freedom. I appreciated the historical edge the game had to it, even learning a few things without ever being pressured that I was being educated. Even though the controls and balance need refining a fair bit, I still recommend this ultraviolent take on British history.

An adult and awesome experience, full of action, violence and an extremely addictive gameplay based on a 2D side-scroll system.

It's nothing hugely original, but Wulverblade certainly has heart and style.

A fine addition to the scrolling beat-'em-up genre. The story and its historic backdrop is interesting and the combat is meaty and fun. Arcade and arena modes will keep you coming back for more, as will co-op.

Horrendously entertaining, boundlessly violent and with one eye on ancient history, Wulverblade provides an exceptionally thoughtful and enticing roadmap for the growth of the side-scrolling brawler. Pick up your controller and prepare for war; the North beckons.

Wulverblade is a blast to play, it looks and runs well, and it has rolling heads and slow motion death kills. It's colorful yet dark, it's a game yet it offers an educational aspect. It can feel hard at times, but the checkpoint system helped elevate that most moments. Grab a friend, a joycon, and do some split screen skull bashing because Wulverblade is a fun nostalgia romp and worth the price of admission.

Run to the Eshop and purchase this game. Sit down, draw your weapon, and fight alongside three powerful warriors in a stunning adventure that begs to be played.

Wulverblade brings the old school beat'em up gameplay to the Nintendo Switch, this time with a proper plot and a unique art style. If this is enough to make the game stand out, its merciless and absolutely ruthless difficulty level will most certainly filter the vast majority of players and leave only the most determined (and fanatical) left.

While certainly inspired by the cult-classics of the 90s, Wulverblade lacks their natural class and their inherent appeal: it's still a game that will entertain you, but one that eventually won't leave you with much more.

Despite its modest hack-and-slash origins, Wulverblade manages to pack in a lot of content, depth and unlockable elements, and these allow it to transcend the usual limitations of the genre. The action rarely becomes too repetitive because there are always multiple ways of dealing with the hordes of enemies which present a genuinely stern test, even for seasoned players who fondly recall pumping coins into the likes of Golden Axe and Final Fight all those years ago. Simply finishing the game's epic story is the kind of challenge that will keep you glued to your Switch for a considerable length of time, but the Arcade mode – which goes truly old-school – awaits those who feel cocky (or foolish) enough to take it on. Wulverblade's lack of hand-holding reminds us of a time when games really did push the player in order to maximise their enjoyment, but it could prove too taxing for those who are entering their genre cold; with this in mind an easier "casual" mode might have been a wise choice as we fear some will give up when they encounter one of the game's many painful spikes in difficulty. Like the games that inspired it, Wulverblade is best played with a friend – not just because it's more enjoyable, but because it blunts the almost sadistic difficulty level. Wulverblade therefore might not be to everybody's tastes, but if you have even a passing interest in genre then we can confidently predict you'll get along with this famously – and you may even learn something about the history of Roman Britain in the process, which isn't something you can say about every video game.

Wulverblade is a good take on the classic brawler genre, telling a compelling story about bretons against roman army of the 9th Legion.

Wulverblade is a classic style beat'em up game that deserves attention. Although the gameplay is highly repetitive, but the aesthetics of comic-style graphics and fast gorey fights, can truly spark an addiction. finally i must say that despite some issues that the gameplay has, Wulverblade is a worthy game to experience.

Wulverblade might not be the most innovative of titles, but what it does it does really well. This is everything you ever loved about the beat 'em up genre, put into one stylized little package. It doesn't reinvent the genre, or even really add anything new, but at the same time it doesn't really need to. Fans of the genre will love what this has to offer though, and it might even manage to draw some newcomers in as well. With some slick and enjoyable combat and a unique, interesting visual aesthetic, it is hard to not be immediately drawn in by Wulverblade. It really is a great title, so grab a sword and start slashing your way through medieval Britain.

Overall, Wulverblade is a pretty interesting game with classic action and a heavy helping of history, but it's also a game that is primarily for hardcore brawler fans who enjoy the pain of control issues and merciless gameplay. If that's not your cup of tea, you may want to look elsewhere.

Wulverblade is a nice looking beat 'em up with plenty of action and a nice challenge, especially during its boss fights. A lot of love went into making this game, as you'll notice when you check out all the information and lore for the weapons and settings used in the game

Wulverblade is a game about killing things in all sorts of manners, except on occasion your fallen enemies drop elegantly written pieces of history. The historical setting, the devotion to detail and colourful artstyle are sure to draw its share of fans, and the gameplay is also a perfectly functional modern reimagining of 80's era beat-em-ups. It is my dream that there forms a devoted fanbase who appreciate both of those things, but for now this is a game divided between two aims.
