    This 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.

    This is the worst PSP game I have ever played. The graphics are below par and the controls are weird. The concept is boring and it's one of those same-old same-old games that you get over after half an hour. This is not worth the pricetag!!! I would have given it a higher rating if the game didn't cost so freakin' much! I could have used that money to buy something way This is the worst PSP game I have ever played.

    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.

    There's simply zero reason to even take a passing look at The Science of Evil.
  2. I can not recommend Science of Evil on the PSP, if you want a good Hellboy experience pick up a comic, or check out the film.
  3. 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.
