  1. While Spider-Man 3 might have had a somewhat better-looking and more accurate Manhattan, the frame rate in The Incredible Hulk is more solid, except for brief rare occasions when you're literally leveling several blocks of the city simultaneously.
  2. While annoying, the lock-ups don't really do much to dampen how outlandishly fun the game is. If you like the Hulk and you enjoying destroying things, you'll enjoy your time with The Incredible Hulk, even if you have to reset the system from time to time.
  3. The game is fun and being the Hulk as never been such a chaotic thrill. However, the horrible voice acting and corporate Achievement schemes will bring even the Hulk to his knees.
  4. The word “good” should never be used when describing this game, but “entertaining” definitely fits it. Who doesn’t love smashing stuff? The Hulk does it better than anyone, and it’s captured quite well within this game.
  5. For a movie-based game, The Incredible Hulk is an enjoyable experience that works technically better on the Playstation format than the 360.
  6. The story is average at best, the presentation is poor and the game is rife with glitches. Despite these problems though, the fact remains that it's still an extremely fun game, largely thanks to Edge of Reality's skill at successfully putting you in the shoes of the destructive whirlwind that is the Incredible Hulk.
  7. As moviegoers walk away from the film hoping to continue the adventure, this Hulk is far from incredible.
  8. Hulk’s orgy of destruction is entertaining at the beginning, but unfortunately it’s the only motivating thing in the game. Both the missions and the story are weak.
  9. 60
    Though Hulk is a serviceable game that can be enjoyed over a weekend, it feels outdated.
  10. What The Incredible Hulk for the PS3 does do is prove that, once again, most movie tie-in games are rushed products that lack creativity and fun.
  11. 60
    While it does contain moments of fun, playing through The Incredible Hulk will leave many gamers yearning to dust off their copies of Ultimate Destruction and reminisce about how fun it used to be to play the Hulk.
  12. To call The Incredible Hulk a bad game would be a bit too harsh. Instead, it is an aggravating, shallow, repetitive, buggy, and yet somehow moderately entertaining title.
  13. It’s fun to run around as the Hulk in an open world, harassing pedestrians and tearing the city apart with your bare hands, but with its uneven pacing, dull missions, and sloppy presentation, The Incredible Hulk won’t keep most players interested for long.
  14. 58
    A ton of side missions offer varying entertainment value, plenty of doodads to collect and power Hulk up with, and even a few cool alternate character skins for the green guy to wear. But I can't just quietly ignore the fact that a similar, but far better Hulk game (the best superhero game, for my money) sits on my shelf at home, and is readily available for anyone to track down.
  15. You won't like it when this simplistic, repetitive, and occasionally broken game makes you angry.
  16. Smashing is fun, but there's no real depth. [Sept 2008, p.78]
  17. 52
    The Incredible Hulk initially delivers a suitably destructive experience, but the novelty soon disappears. Samey missions stretch the premise to breaking point, while a rushed game engine shows flaws early on, making it hard to recommend.
  18. You'll get moments of fun simply from being Hulk, but this isn't enough to carry the whole game. The incredibly disappointing presentation is sadly the final nail in Hulk's coffin.
  19. It's not a technical showcase by any means, but The Incredible Hulk is a decent enough game for Marvel fans and we can't deny that we had some fun with the physics; Hulk's later powers can be devastating. But when you've leveled the same building five times and caused 10 car pile-ups the fun wears thin.
  20. But for a Hulk title, that's utterly disappointing--the game just doesn't live up to its potential. [Aug 2008, p.75]
  21. An unfinished product accompanying a good movie. One-time playthrough is more than enough, if you must.
  22. The Hulk is ugly, outdated, and from the look of some sections, maybe even unfinished. [Sept 2008, p.100]
  23. 40
    If every mission is going to take place around the same five blocks, try giving the different areas a bit of character instead of exploding walls. Make bosses that are fun to beat up and not just another thing you throw cars at until they stop moving. Just getting rid of the multitude of minor glitches could have easily raised the score.
  24. 40
    Unfortunately, there isn't much to this game's rendition of New York that hasn't been done better in other games.
  25. Simply put, there is no reason that anyone should pay money to play this game.

    The power of the Hulk!! This game captures that perfectly. Sad part is they don't give him a proper story and they overload way too much onThe power of the Hulk!! This game captures that perfectly. Sad part is they don't give him a proper story and they overload way too much on sidequests that the game is convoluted. Still, HULK SMASH!!!! No more Hulk getting taken out by anonymous squad members. Tanks beware!! Humvees become Hulk's boxing gloves to smash yet more stuff. But with all that power, they constrict his movement (he'll never turn into David Banner for you) in New York City. Try as you might, you're just such a behemoth that signs, cars, vendors, fire hydrants all get accidently smashed. Then comes the army once the city meter has deemed too much destruction has gone on for long enough. Then it becomes a high speed chase that involves more destruction, and a building or two, or three, or four comes down. This becomes way too repetitious. Overall, The Incredible Hulk is one of those games that has potential and you would just wish some company would pick this up and improve it for the ultimate Hulk game. Full Review »
