  1. It could have been a contender, but The Science of Evil is merely above average, and leaves a sour reminder that the cynicism we harbor toward licensed games isn’t exclusive to the people playing them. It’s a real shame.
  2. A hastily made, not much fun, not worth the money movie add-on. You're better off buying a box of Hellboy Cornflakes.
  3. I was a little disappointed with the length of the game. It was about an hour too short.
  4. Fans of Hellboy likely won't find this game to be a complete disappointment, although it honestly could have been much better. With its repetitive and sluggish gameplay, fairly short completion time, bad camera, lackluster cinematics, and complete lack of voice work, I would definitely caution eager fans to play the game before purchasing it.

    This game is very average. The fighting is repetitive, bad lighting is everywhere, and there is too much frustration at almost every corner. IThis game is very average. The fighting is repetitive, bad lighting is everywhere, and there is too much frustration at almost every corner. I could have been better if there were more moves available in combat. Full Review »

    Hellboy: The Science of Evil is your basic brawler, nothing new or original but still an entertaining game for at least one play through,Hellboy: The Science of Evil is your basic brawler, nothing new or original but still an entertaining game for at least one play through, graphics are okay, the sound effects are repetitive, the music is okay however, and there is no voice acting, the controls are great, the story is just tagged on to have one, all in all while nothing that new it is still an o.k. game from beginning to end.
