Gamezilla (1997)
The Incredible Hulk is a fairly ho-hum game that could have been better. I really wish they would have incorporated human to Hulk morphing because this is really what the Hulk is based on. I think what you will find is this game wears thin fairly quick and unless you are a huge fan of the Hulk, I suggest renting it first to see if this green machine is for you. For the rest of the world that has no interest in comics but just want a good game, this will probably be a disappointment.

Inutile de s'attarder sur un titre qui n'a pas grand chose à faire sur une machine 32 bits. Certes, les aficionados de Marvel y retrouveront enfin un personnage de Comic's. Mais le jeu, qui n'est pas aidé du tout par des graphismes très pauvres et des animations ultra saccadées, est loin d'être fabuleux. Bref, même si le genre ne court pas les rues sur cette console, évitez-le tout de même, vous ne vous en porterez que mieux.

I hate to take another crack at a company that's already received so many but for all intents and purposes, The Pantheon Saga is a game that would have seemed right at home on the old Acclaim roster.

It isn't as bad as most Acclaim games of the same formula, and is best thought of as part of Eidos' old ways. Look forward to Tomb Raider 2 and leave Incredible Hulk behind.
The Incredible Hulk sucks, plain and simple. Do not buy it unless held at knife-point.
NowGamer (Dec, 1996)
To add insult to injury, the graphics in general are blocky and uninspiring; on the PlayStation this is a crime, when you consider the kind of kick-arse visuals that could have been incorporated. Hulk is dull, dull, dull! Justifiably hailed as a masterpiece of programming, Tomb Raider has rocketed EIDOS firmly into realms of superstardom, but this embarrassing offering doesn’t do the company any favours. The Incredible Hulk sucks, plain and simple. Do not buy it unless held at knife-point.
Mega Fun (Mar, 1997)
Der unglaubliche Hulk, so heißt das Spiel - um das hohlhirnige plumpe Monster. Die Dummheit dieser lebendigen Brechstange mag zwar unglaublich sein, viel unglaublicher ist aber die miese Spielqualität, mit der wir hier von Eidos abgespeist werden. Nach dem genialen Tomb Raider und dem sehr guten Blam! Machinehead war die Erwartungshaltung natürlich groß; doch The Incredible Hulk macht leider den Eindruck, als sei es in einer unvorhergesehenen Kaffeepause mal eben zusammengeschustert worden: Die Grafik ist unansehnlich und grobpixelig, die Gegner sind dumm und einfallslos, die uninspirierte Hin- und Herlatscherei und das Umlegen der nicht enden wollenden Schalter würden selbst so ein schlichtes Gemüt wie den Hulk nach kürzester Zeit anöden. Gäbe es die Kategorie “Jump ‘n Gähn“, so hätte Eidos jüngste Konsolen-Quälerei gute Chancen auf unseren heißbegehrten Referenztitel.
GameSpot (Apr 10, 1997)
Ironically, Eidos (publisher of The Incredible Hulk) also released Tomb Raider, which helped redefine platform and adventure titles to such a lofty point that games like this are now unacceptable. Even before Tomb Raider, however, games with similar shortcomings have had at least one redeeming quality. Sadly though, there is no salvation for The Incredible Hulk - its dreadful mix of low-quality graphics, sound, and gameplay will leave players green with disgust.
