STORY -= ************** James Howlett was born into privilege in Canada during the late 19th century, the second son of John and Elizabeth Howlett. At the shock of seeing his father shot and killed, young James manifested his latent mutant abilities when bone claws jutted from the back of each hand. The beast unleashed, James attcked and killed his father's murderer, then fled to British Columbia with Rose, the young woman he loved. Under the identity of Logan he discovered he had other mutant abilities including animal-keen senses and an accelerated healing factor. Due to his tenacity and refusal to back down from a challenge, Logan acquired the nickname Wolverine. When Wolverine confronted the son of his father's murderer, a battle ensued, tragically ending with Rose impaled on Wolverine's claws. Wracked by grief over the death of the woman he truely loved, Wolverine fled into the woods. He was not seen for a long time and due to his healing factor, even after 100 years Logan appeared to be in his mid-30's. During that time his life became shrouded in mystery, peppered with half truths and anecdotal reports of unconfirmed sightings. The legend of the man called Wolverine was slowly taking form. In the latter half of the 20th century, the government subjected Logan to a bizarre battery of experiments intended to forge the ultimate killing machine. Weapon X scientists grafted the indestructible metal adamantium to Logan's skeleton and bone claws, and introduced memory implants that shaped his past to suit their ends. Combined with the earlier effects of his healing factor, these false memories have made it impossible for Logan to discern fact from fiction when recalling his former life. He nows knows little of his past, save that it was fraught with pain and loss. Wolverine was working as an operative for the Canadian government when he accepted Professor X's offer to join the X-Men. Logan chose to stay on partly due to his belief in Xavier's vision for the co-existance of humans and mutants, and partly because of his attraction to Jean Grey. During his time with the X-Men, Logan has worked to regain his lost memories, but virtually every answer leads him to even more questions. Now... A deadly viral time bomb has been triggered in Wolverine's nervous system. The race is on to find the antidote before the virus goes lethal! Faced with a brand new adventure, Wolverine must take his powers and endurance to the very limit. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ +_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+ ******************** =- G. WALKTHROUGH -= ******************** Remember, these are just the best ways I know of at the moment. There may be (and probably are!) better ways round some of these obstacles. Feel free to let me know. Plenty of space in the Credits section.... i) Act I - Rebirth Act I Part 1 - Weapon X ----------------------- Simple enough start. Once the cut scene is over, dispose of the four guards in this section. There's a doorway to one side - simply slash the wires to the right of the door and go through. Enter Senses mode (press and hold L2) and press yourself against the right hand wall. Sneaking along this wall and peering round the corner will show you an unaware soldier. Pressing Circle when the STRIKE! appears on screen will get you your first Stealth kill, 10,000 points and a dogtag. Looking round the corner at the rest of the soldiers in Senses mode will show you a soldier towards the left hand side, with his back to you. Sneak up on him and get another Stealth kill. Continue clockwise around that pillar in the middle of the yard and there's another Stealth kill available. Careful, as the last guard after him patrols back and forward here and might see you. Once the third guard's taken care of, follow the last guard and dispose of him. Go over to the fence. Beyond that is a minefield - highly explosive. Luckily, your Senses mode can detect mines. Hold the Senses on and slowly move across the minefield to the door on the far side. You can either use the doorway, or cut a hole in the fence with your claws to make a shorter route. Avoid the spinning yellow circles and try not to move too fast. When you enter the room on the far side, there are two soldiers with their back to you. You can sneak up and Stealth strike one of them but the other will fight you. I'd suggest killing the one on the left, otherwise he runs for the alarm. Or if you position yourself very carefully (just watch the arrows on the floor) you can pull off a double strike that kills both of them immediately. Crates in this room (and some of the computers!) can be destroyed. Slashing one crate will reveal a secret room with a hidden comic book in it, giving you a change of costume. The nearby crate reveals a air duct to a room full of health packs. You'll need to duck down (R1 button) to get in though. When you've finished, access the console that one guard was using and go back outside. If you've triggered an alarm at any time, there will be four guards waiting outside. Be careful how you fight them, as mines are still around that area. There'll also be four guards waiting on the other side of the fence too. After crossing the minefield once more, there's one guard that you must fight. If the alarm hasn't gone off, there's a chance of a Stealth kill on him. Cut across the minefield to the far left side of the fence (away from him) and still holding Senses or Stealth, creep through the fence and then all the way round the yard to behind him. Be warned, this is very difficult to get through the fence without him spotting you. Defeating him gives you a keycard which unlocks the door on the far side near the truck. Going through there, you enter a vehicle maintence bay. There's one soldier lying under a truck and one on his right. Stealth strike the guy under the truck first and then the other for another couple of dogtags. Enter the doorway to the right and dispose of the three soldiers in there. On the right hand wall as you enter, there's a console. Operate that to open the doors down the ramp and exit through there to end the level. Act I part 2 - Below Ground --------------------------- Follow the path down and around until you come to an ambush by four soldiers. The one at the back has a taser which stuns you. Press the analog stick from side to side as quickly as possible, then take him down first so he doesn't do it again. The remaining three soldiers should be a piece of cake after that. Alternatively, as soon as the level starts, go into Stealth mode and crouch down. Holding this position, creep around the tunnel carefully. The soldier with the taser and two of the others should be standing with their back to you. It's now possible to do a Stealth Kill on taser guy. Unfortunately, the first soldier behind the barricade will now spot you, and the normal fight starts. Once done, continue down the slope until you come to more doors and enter. There's two flaming trucks in the middle of the room and four more guards to kill. Once they're gone, and your health is reasonable, you can run through the fire between the trucks and find another hidden comic and another costume change. After running back through, there's a slope to the side and a door at the bottom which you need to break down with your claws. The corridor has explosives planted on the sides which will go off when they detect somebody approaching. Be careful with the very first two as they're not activated, and it's quite possible to arm them yourself. The very furthest ones will blow up the far door and show a room. Before going in, turn left down the side passage to a cave with your first Cerebro file in it. Entering the lit room, you meet your old friend Sabretooth who shows you his interior decorating style. Passing through, you enter a gas-filled room. Your health will NOT heal while gas is around and the only way to switch it off is to kill the three guards in there. Going up through the side door leads you to a room with another two guards and two doors to be destroyed. Going through the door to the left introduces you to another guard and a room behind him with 8 health packs hidden in crates. On top of this side room (reached by a ladder at the end of the room is another Cerebro file. Going through the second destroyable door leads you to a corridor, with a locked door to the side and a power room ahead of you. Sneaking up on the guard to the left will give you another Stealth kill. Go back down and operate the console on the other side of the room. Dispose of the three guards that enter and go through the previously locked door. Two more guards to kill on the way through. The next room has laser wire units rising up. Your Senses mode will let you get through this without too much difficulty. After killing the guard, his console will turn the Laser units off. Break down the next door and exit the level. Act I part 3 - Freakshow ------------------------ You start at the top of a stairwell with four soldiers at the bottom. It's possible to sneak along the walls until you get a chance to do a Stealth kill jump onto one of the soldiers, but it's tough. Killing all four will grant you a keycard which is used on the door in there. Stealth kill the guy to the right immediately. The way to the left leads to a dead end with five guards and seven health packs. Proceeding along to the right once more, there's another Stealth kill available along the right hand wall. And stealthing along that corridor and inside the room on the left lets you Stealth kill again. Move back to the first corridor again and Stealth hug the left hand wall this time. Peering around the corner lets you Stealth kill the guy who normally always jumps out on you. If you've done this correctly and haven't triggered any alarms, you should see three soldiers all with their backs to you now. Very careful sneaking and positioning should enable you to get a Triple Strike on all three, gaining another dogtag. Entering the room ahead of them, shows four alerted guards and another set of laser wire units. Getting the timing right and running along the left hand wall should let you get to the console with no loss of health. The console also unlocks the corridor to the Genetics lab. Once you've killed off the genetic freak in the corridor, there's another in the next room wandering around the lower section. Warning - wait too long in the corridor and he'll come to you. Down where he normally is are eight health packs. Proceeding along to the tanks at the end, there's a console to operate the lift in the middle of the room. Unfortunately, using the console also releases two genetic freaks. After killing them, go down in the lift and meet Sabretooth once more. Only one of these two passages will open right now so go through it and locate the scientist you need. You'll need to kill another two genetic freaks mind you... When that's done and you're healed, step on the elevator with the scientist and follow him. Kill the next pair of genetic freaks before he'll move on. If you lose him at any time, he's gone to the lift console back by the tanks from earlier. When you join him, he'll open up the previously locked door by the bottom of the lift shaft. Go through there, up the next elevator and through the door in front. End of level. Act I Part 4 - Runt of the Litter --------------------------------- It's a Sabretooth boss fight! Lucky us! Basically, hit him till he's down to no health left. This causes the tank of petrol or whatever to come down. Then hit him again until he's dazed or standing roaring and circle behind him. Pressing the Strike button now lets you grab him from behind and throw him face first into things. The damage done by the enviroment is the only way to permently bring his life bar down. Remember, claws in will let you heal as well. Once he's down and collapsed, walk over to him and do one last Strike. That'll let you pick him up, twirl him around and throw Sabretooth into the wall. You'll then find several dogtags, a Cerebro file and the keycard you need to exit this room. Make your way out of the Genetics area and back to the medical corridor. There'll be one genetic freak wandering around to be taken care of. Go along past where he was and through the previously sealed Security door to the Core Chamber. Head to the left hand side and up to the observation port to get another Cerebro file. Once done, go to the orange center corridor and into the Professor's office. Congrats! That's Act I completed! ii) Act II - Lone Wolf Down Act II part 1 - Crash Site -------------------------- Okay, this ain't a good way to start - low on health and surrounded. First thing to do is to retract your claws, start the healing going and immediately enter Senses mode and don't move at all. The solitary guard searching the crash site level with you will walk towards you a bit and then turn away. Sneak up and perform a Stealth kill on him. If you're spotted at any point here, the helicopter will turn and fire on you. And in your current lack of health any damage could kill you. After the first guard is dead, sneak over to the cliff edge and look down. If you're in the right position, you'll be able to do a Stealth kill from above on the next guard. Repeat to take out guard number three. Stay in Senses mode for a while - you'll need to be able to watch the helicopter's searchlight. When the searchlight swings away, drop the Senses mode and RUN along the right hand side to a corner in the mountain. Rest there and use Senses mode to watch the searchlight again. There'll be about six seconds when the searchlight swings past you towards the plane wreck. That will give you enough time to run along the right hand side and swing yourself round a corner. Look up and you'll see four health packs, which should bring you back up to full health. Simply then follow the path along, check the searchlight below and make a break for the fence. Once you're in this section of the area, the helicopter's behaviour changes. If you've been spotted earlier, then it will follow you around this area (even onto the bridge!) and shoot at you when it finds you. If you haven't been spotted, then you'll have no helicopter problems at all. Approach the building on the right and climb up the snow drift to the roof. If you look over the other side of the roof, you'll be able to pull off another death from above Stealth kill. Look ahead of you now - you can see the generators to your left and the bridge to the right. Head off to the bridge and after the cut scene, do a running jump over the gap to the second bridge section. Go round the truck and carefully line yourself up. Once you pass the front of the truck, the guard slips and you have five seconds suddenly counting down. Go down to him quickly, (but be careful not to fall off) and enter Senses mode to get a Strike opportunity. If you get the Strike, you pull the guard up and then get a Stealth kill. Throwing the body into the truck also gets you another health pack. Going back across the bridge, you'll find the generators directly ahead. Slash the fence with your claws to get in. Go to the consoles and perform an action. Sticking your claws in does get the power flowing and your health dropping. Wiggle the left analog stick from side to side to break free. Getting the power going opens the big door on the one side of the area. Unfortunately, it also brings one helicopter, three soldiers guarding the door itself and three soldiers patroling the area between you and the door. Run to the nearest building and climb the ladder up. The office at the top has smashable windows which will let you get a health pack if needed. From this level, you can watch the guards patroling below. Keeping the senses on, you can move along the connecting bridge to the copter pad and look down on the far side. You should be able to do a death from above Stealth kill. Disposing of the other two patroling guards or just ignoring them, move towards the door. If they haven't been alerted there should be a guard standing there with his back to you. Just right for another Stealth kill. However, this alerts the guards and the helicopter who starts firing missiles at you. Run as fast as possible into the tunnel and wait for the door to seal behind you. Following the tunnel, you reach a nice big, very quiet grain silo. There's a lift shaft to the left, which I don't recommend falling down. Take the stairs to your right and jump over the gap in the flooring. Entering the smaller room, you'll find a locked door and an explosive barrel. Setting that off will grant you access to the control room. Operating the control panel brings up the lift but lets in an awful lot of soldiers. Exit the control room via the right, picking up another comic cover on the way. It is possible to sneak around the edge of this upper section and pull off a death from above Stealth kill, but it's tough. Once you've attacked the first soldier, everyone's alerted and after your blood. Do NOT go into the lift, as they will shoot the controls and cause the game to finish. One tip for this fight is to use the L1 button to lose the enemy lock-on and let you hit a different one. Also, once a soldier is hit, he'll drop his gun and only fight you hand to hand. When they're all dead, enter the lift and use the controls. When you hit the bottom, exit the lift to end the level. Act II part 2 - The Lurking Horror ---------------------------------- Ah...possibly my favourite level in the game, but one of the most frustrating to work out as well. Firstly, run straight ahead, up the ramp and into the first door. Activate the console to see the camera feed. My... that doesn't look very nice. Go back out and to the next door. Move round the empty barracks until you find an explosive barrel next to a suspicious looking wall. Slash the barrel to blow up the wall and reveal a secret room with another comic cover and costume for you. Exit the barracks and head over to the far side by the rubble. Crouching down (R1 button) will let you find your way through the debris to the other side. Warning - from here on in, being spotted by ANYONE causes the level to end. I strongly recommend staying in either Senses or Stealth mode as long as possible. Sneak over to the wall to your left and flatter yourself against it. Siddle along the wall and peer round at the first guard. Stealth kill him. The next guard is off to the right staring over the balcony. Sneak up and kill him too. Now, while still holding Senses mode, also hold the crouch button and crawl along the right hand bridge. The guard at the end cannot see you over the edge while you are crouched. When you get to the end, press yourself against the wall, lean round and get that guard. The next guard has his back to you and is a piece of cake. The button by him opens the door back on the side you came in. There's nothing in that room as it's sealed off by a rock fall at the far end (in fact, it's the room you saw on the camera way back at the start of this level). Sneak along the wall towards the other bridge and Stealth kill the next guard. Only one guard left on this upper level and he's in the nearby control center. He patrols slightly, so only move over the connecting bridge to him after he's turned around. The button in that control room starts the machines up and creates a diversion, moving the guards on the lower level around. Go to the far edge of the control room, and you should be able to get a death from above Stealth kill on the guard below you. Now, there's only four guards remaining. Take them out in a counterclockwise direction, starting with the one with his back to you on the right hand side of the machinery in the middle. When you get to the two guards together, Stealth kill the one on the left first as he's behind the other one. Take out the last guard and relax. Go down through the big door they were guarding and into the mine. Exit the level and breathe a large sigh of relief. Act II part 3 - Sealed In ------------------------- The very very dark mine. Switching to your Senses mode will enable you to see a LOT better in the mine parts. The first junction has a dead end sloping to the right with 3 health packs behind a rock if you need them. Going forward brings you to another junction. The way to your left is another dead end. Going that way leads you to a parallel shaft with 5 health packs at the front end. At the back of that shaft is a slight drop which will kill you if you fall, but is easily leaped over. In the room behind there, you can find even more health (2 packs) and a number of crates to smash. One of them provides 2 more health packs and some rage energy. Returning back to the primary shaft and going straight ahead brings you to another spot where the ground has dropped away from either side of the rails. Carefully make your way over and proceed. Next is a spot where the ground has completely dropped away. Either do a running jump to get across or place yourself against the left hand wall and edge across that way. You'll see a giant block of rock has fallen ahead. Crouch down and go through under it. The way ahead leads to a cave in, but the right fork takes you out. Ahead of you is a Department H soldier. Wait for him to venture ahead around the corner, and then you can sneak up on him and get a Stealth kill. Otherwise, he tends to spot you when he turns round. Following the tunnel down gets you to a brightly lit part of the mine. There are 3 guards patroling on the platforms above you and 4 in the brightly lit tunnel on one side. Carefully sneak round the left hand side of the room. Don't step in the light circles or drop the Stealth because the tunnel guards will spot you at once. Sneak round to the stairs up to the platform and do your usual Stealth kill. The next guard will have his back to you and also present no problem. Do a running jump from here across the room to the far platform and do a Stealth kill on the last guard in this room. There's a switch on the wall ahead of him that Professor X was talking about. Use your claws to destroy it. That will take the explosives on the tunnel walls offline and cause the 4 guards in there to head out looking for intruders. Take them all out and go through the tunnel. Drop down to the next level and enter the winch to exit the level. Act II part 4 - Grim Discoveries -------------------------------- Quite a tough level to figure out at first. The Wendigo eats people - if you get too close, it eats you. The only way to move it to to feed the Wendigo the soldiers with you. Run ahead and stop when you see the Wendigo appear. Turn around and go back round the stalagmites to the right. This will bring you up behind the group of three soldiers that have just dropped down the lift shaft. I suggest doing most of this level with your claws in. Punch the living daylights out of the guards until they've dropped their weapons and one of them is so dazed that the STRIKE! option comes up. Do NOT kill him, but press the Square button to grab him. Now that you have your tasty Wendigo snack, run towards the Wendigo and without getting too close to him, press Circle to throw the soldier to the Wendigo. He should take the snack and run off to his next place. Repeat with the next batch of soldiers (or any survivors of your last group) until you have your next victim. Carry him past where the Wendigo was before and round the edges of a cavern. When the ground starts to slope steeply down, stop and look carefully around for the Wendigo. It's quite easy here to run into the Wendigo unaware and end the level right there. Feed him victim number 2 and watch him run. I suggest waiting now till you're fully healed and maybe even get another Wendigo snack ready. Following the tunnel around brings you to a very big cavern. The Wendigo spooks and rushes past you (if he hits you, there's a noticable loss of health) and runs up a spiraling path round the cavern walls. And then the soldiers decide to arrive in force. Normal rules - knock the guns out of their hands, use L1 to move on to the next soldier and try to grab one of them. When you have one, run up the path the Wendigo took, dodging the arriving soldiers wherever possible and reach the top where the Wendigo waits. Pass him his last snack and then follow him to his lair. Act III part 5 - Wendigo's Cave ------------------------------- Oh....My....God. Not fun. Not fun at all. And yet, when you know what you're doing, it can be done quick and easily. The Wendigo has two bars by his picture. The bottom one is his life and how far you've reduced it. The top one is his charge bar. When the charge bar fills, he charges at you (that's why I call it a charge bar) until it runs out. At that point, he skids on the ice. That gives you enough time to run up to him, hit him ONCE, and then circle around behind him until the STRIKE! command comes up. When the STRIKE! comes up, Wolverine grabs the Wendigo by the tail and spins him round and round. Waggle the left analog stick from side to side to increase the speed and the damage done to the Wendigo on landing. If the Wendigo is thrown over the side, he'll jump back up and land in the middle of the platform, causing a shockwave to ripple across it, destroying all the ice crystals. It's possible to jump over the shockwave, but be careful not to be hit by the shockwave when you are standing on the edge of the platform : instant death from the spikes. When the ice crystals are falling down, either dodge them by avoiding being at the centre of the lines on the floor, or stand on one of the skulls or skeletons. The crystals don't hit them. In general, you need to throw the Wendigo four times with full power before he's finished. His charge bar lasts for longer each time after you've thrown him and he seems more intent on catching you. If your health is low, it's possible to jump onto one of the big ice crystals and get one of the health packs floating in mid-air, but it's tough. Eventually, after his health is gone, he'll be standing in the center of the platform with no ice crystals left at all. Go up to him, and find the STRIKE! point. Wolverine will then pull off a very nifty finishing strike and Wendigo will collapse. He'll leave behind several dogtags and a Cerebro file on himself. Congratulations! You just beat one of the nastiest bosses to date!
