  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. 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.
  3. As moviegoers walk away from the film hoping to continue the adventure, this Hulk is far from incredible.

    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.

    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.
  6. But for a Hulk title, that's utterly disappointing--the game just doesn't live up to its potential. [Aug 2008, p.75]
  7. Simply put, there is no reason that anyone should pay money to play this game.

    The best movie to game translation I've played since Spider-man 2. I could smash things for hours at a time... the perfect thing to relieve some stress after a hard day at work. Expand

    From what I've seen this looks like it will be the best superhero game of all time. I mean come-on who wouldn't want to be the Hulk running free, GTA-style in Manhattan. Collapse

    wicked game the only reason not a 10 is because the hulk will move on his own sometimes without touching controllers and i have 3 controllers and they all do the same thing. Expand

    Its nice to just smash an entire city as Marvel's strongest superhero. You can pretty much do anything in this game. You can throw cars, tear down buildings and fight giant robots. And seriously, who doesn't like the Hulk? Expand

    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 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. Expand
