  1. Nintendo Power
    The game is not very ambitious, but what it does, it does well. [Aug 2008, p.88]
  2. When it comes to the brute mashing of many things, The Incredible Hulk proves to be a great source for stress relief. As a movie-based game, it suffers from an unclear storyline that requires you to have seen the film to get the whole picture - perhaps this is intentional.
  3. The small-screen version of The Incredible Hulk won't make you feel like the world's angriest superhero, but clever level design and tight controls make this the best Hulk game this year.
  4. The single-player segment is definitely fun while it lasts, but it's far too short and easy to be anything memorable. The lack of gameplay-altering unlockables and a fully featured multiplayer mode makes the experience feel a little too bare-bones to warrant a purchase.
  5. Fun and frustrating while it lasts.
  6. The Incredible Hulk isn't actually a bad game, but it's a shame that, despite shaking them up a little, it's not quite good enough to HULK SMASH! our preconceptions.
  7. 52
    The Incredible Hulk feels like it was just phoned in.
  8. While the simple action may be entertaining for the younger folk, the lack of varied gameplay keeps it from being a worthwhile purchase.
  9. 45
    While older players will find some brainless fun in The Incredible Hulk, the simple gameplay would more likely to suited to a younger audience.
  10. The game’s levels lack any sort of checkpoint system, an annoying little flaw that becomes a real hassle as later levels take a massive difficulty spike and Hulk smash! becomes Hulk awkwardly dodge walls of randomly fired bullets and missiles.
  11. n-Revolution Magazine UK
    Has its moments, but the lack of variety, failure to challenge, and overall brevity make it completely unessential. [Issue#25, p.76]
  12. Although this title is playable it won't leave a lasting impression. The plot is incomprehensible and the presentation looks dated. The experience being a short one is actually a good thing in this title which you'd do well to avoid.
  13. AceGamez
    With its monotonous combat, unimaginative level design and difficulty spikes that'd make even Cliff Richard curse with unbridled fury, it's hard to recommend The Incredible Hulk to the younger audience it's supposedly aimed at.
  14. Nintendo Gamer
    Abomination more like. [Sept 2008, p.70]
  15. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    It's utterly boring. [Aug 2008, p.101]
