  1. The start of this promising franchise was so good that this game pales in comparison. It’s not the worst movie to game tie-in in recent years -- The Golden Compass has to take that spot -- but it’s certainly not far off.
  2. Incredible Hulk is an embarrassment, one of the worst movie-to-game translations to come out in some time — and that's really saying something.
  3. With a decent amount of work and attention to details, the sequel could be worth playing. Unfortunately, this one is just not ready yet, and that is written in the frequent bugs.
  4. The embarrassing graphics and painful controls in The Incredible Hulk make citywide destruction feel boring.

    "Ultimate Destruction" was on the PS2 as well, but it still had a beautifully rendered, detailed city that was fully visible from any rooftop -- and a blast to wreak havoc on. Instead of building on that better game, though, Incredible Hulk is a weak attempt at mimicking it.
  6. "The Incredible Hulk: The Official Videogame" is a lacklustre, technically poor experience that you really can afford to miss.
  7. It is far less functional than its other console counterparts. The camera angles leave you wide open to damage while you manually rotate it. The gameplay is even more tedious, with minimal yet frustrating usage of the Wii's unique control set-up.

    Quite obviously rushed through development in order to come onto the market at the same time as the film, this is sure to be another movie-to-game bargain bin dweller in a few weeks.

    Sorry, Sega, but your luck with movie licenses just isn't getting any better. [Sept 2008, p.101]
  10. Nintendo Gamer
    There's a certain amount of fun to be had smashing everything to pieces, but no longevity. [Oct 2008, p.76]
  11. n-Revolution Magazine UK
    Enjoyable for a while, but there are so many better games out there. [Issue#26, p.78]
  12. Nintendo Power
    With a big-budget movie comes a subpar video game adaptation--that seems to be the rule. So it should be no surprise that The Incredible Hulk on Wii is...not so great. [Aug 2008, p.90]

    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.

    The Incredible Hulk isn't the worst movie tie-in game ever made, but the initial charm of mass destruction dissipates rather quickly. This leaves it a rather buggy and joyless experience that, like a gumball, loses its flavor all too fast.
