I don't know about you, but I'm really getting tired of these comic book hero games which are released alongside the blockbuster movie. Something is always missing from them, and most often, that "thing", is gameplay. "The Hulk" as published by Vivendi Universal, is an incredibly frustrating gaming experience intermixed with decent, although not incredibly impressive, eye candy.

The story is, obviously, fine, as are all of these games released to promote films. This is the story of what happens after the movie. Bruce Banner and his enraged alter-ego, the Hulk, are forced to go up against the Leader, who is hoping to use the Hulk's "Hulkiness" to create an army of bad Hulks to rule the world. Eegah. The funny part about this game is in the end, the Leader wins. No, actually, that's a lie. I was just trying to jazz up the review a little bit as the game, itself, is insanely boring.

In order to get to the Leader and his "Hulkiness", you must punch. That's right, you punch. You punch everything in sight. People, walls, dogs, watchtowers, pipes, computer consoles...everything. Throw in a couple of stealthy Bruce Banner missions, and there's your game. Kill enemies by punching them, punch through doors and walls to continue your punching journey. For excitement, pick up and item and toss it at an enemy. Then, when they're down, punch them. Also, keep in mind, the majority of your enemies regenerate, so you're only punching to continue forward and punch a wall. Don't get me wrong here, the game does have its difficult parts along with a few rotten bosses, but nothing in the game is difficult to figure out. You know how to kill everything around you, you just have to do it before you are killed.

The graphics are really nothing impressive. If you've ever played a recent "Batman" or "Spider-Man" game, you've seen them. Bright, shiney and very comic book-esque. Been there, done that. The camera is a completely different issue. It's horrible. I don't understand how games have such bad cameras. I thought we were beyond that. Corners are blind, and the camera goes where it tells you it goes. Since gameplay is so basic, not a lot is truly affected by the camera lameness, but it's annoying none the less.

Unless you're a huge Hulk fan, or thoroughly enjoy comic book hero games, I suggest staying away from this one.
