SummaryHulk Should Smash Bad This Puny Game
The GoodIn the early - mid 1990's the Incredible Hulk storyline took on a different, more serious path. The Hulk now had the mind of Bruce Banner and was leading a hi-tech family of super heroes known as The Pantheon. This series dealt with some pretty serious issues, i.e. mental health, genocide, human rights, sexual orientation, global politics, philosophy and HIV. So, it was interesting to see how a complex and serious action packed comic book series would be adapted into a 32-bit video game from the people who gave us Tomb Raider.
The BadThe game has little to do with the original source material, beyond featuring most of the same super heroes and super villains. Heck, the game's story line is almost totally non-existent with a few all-too-brief intermission sequences offer a bad, cliff notes version. It is almost hard to believe that Eidos, the creative folks who brought us the Tomb Raider series, managed to produce a game with a weak storyline and only average, 32-bit graphics and sound. In terms of game play, many of the offensive and defensive moves are difficult to execute.
