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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

With very few caveats, Wulverblade is an exceptional game that no genre fan should miss.

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.

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.
