  1. 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.
  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.
  4. You won't like it when this simplistic, repetitive, and occasionally broken game makes you angry.
  5. 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.
  6. Like so many Hollywood Summer blockbusters: It starts with a cool idea (Hulk destroying stuff) but, from there, grinds to a halt in terms of delivering on its promise. I won't say it's a bad game, because you can get a couple hours of fun out of it running around smashing stuff, but none of it stands out as being exceptional, or even well-done.

    The Incredible Hulk is nothing more than a shoddy imitation.

    Sega's best Super hero game takes what made Ultimate Destruction a fantastic game and tries to put there own spin on things. The combat is pretty sub par and begin able to level buildings is kind of cool, but the city feels small and smashing the city can be done before any actual threatening form of law enforcement comes to get you. The farther you get in the plot the stronger the repercussions are for smashing. So just steer clear of the plot and enjoy the smashy smashy. Expand

    This game is well under rated by the critics. It is a great open world game witch I enjoyed playing a lot. It wasn't that hard but very enjoyable for sure. A great game that I really recommend playing. Expand

    Though there are some entertaining times;overall it is a decent game from beginning to end. Finished it in just a few days. One more thing, How the He!! CAN A BUILDING COLLAPSE AND FALL PERFECTLY STRAIGHT DOWN AND DISAPPEAR LIKE NOTHING!? Expand

    The open sandbox overworld is incredibly fun to run around in, as you can litteraly destroy everything and use everything as a weapon, but the mission are completely uninteresting, and a buggy chore to go through. i give this game a decent score, just because of how fun it is to destroy and explore in the overworld, its almost as fun as grand theft auto, only the missions, as mentioned before, are boring and a bit glithcy. the controls are a bit stiff and even slippery, but, in the overworld it controls fine, but the problem only become present during the missions. i would pay what this games worth (got it for 10$) just to run around and have fun in the overworld, but anymore than 15$ this game definitely is not worth it. As hulk would put it: Overworld fun, Missions bad. Expand

    Ok I need to write this review quick or my little brother Sean who loves hulk will see it. So hulk the game is not really fun and I could not just get into the game, the gameplay is boring and tedious to play along with a rather lack of feeling really powerful it was also really easy since not many people are going to stand a chance against a giant green muscle man. Finally there was not much fun things to do in the city besides missions so I found myself going on rampages regularly but despite that being what hulk does and me loving that in games like prototype it just wasn't fun here Expand

    Haven't played this since it came out, but recently was looking up the meta critic score on some older games, curious to see what they are scored at today. I was surprised to see this game have such a high user score, then realized that the same features are touted in three of the user reviews, which are all posted 1 day after the other, with similarly FirstL names that they had to be someone toying with the scores, be it a member of the press team or development team or just some fanboy. I honestly think this game deserves like a 5, 6 tops...but I am giving it this 1 to even out the score to what it should be. Expand
