Summary: All right, let’s get this out of the way now. This is a licensed game. There are certain expectations when dealing with one of these, many of them lowered . Rarely do they break new ground, presumably because of strict guidelines that are in place to make sure that the identity of the license is preserved.
Conclusion: Hellboy: The Science of Evil is a terrible PSP game. I didn’t find anything real good about this game. The Hellboy name is most likely the best part of this game. If you are a Hellboy fan then you better stay away from this game.
Conclusion: There is no reason to waste your time with Hellboy: Science of Evil. Even fans of the comic won't find much to dig here. The story is handled so inexpertly, it will only anger those who have invested hours reading the paper exploits of Hellboy. Weak combat and ugly visuals should deter those just looking for a solid beat-'em-up.
Pros: Cooperative play lets you drag another person in with you.
Cons: Simple, repetitive combat, Way too easy, Disjointed story, Obscure puzzles, Swords break as easily as your expectations.
Excerpt: Gears of War: Judgment is the most badass iteration that the franchise has yet witnessed. Like many others, I have to admit that the idea of releasing a Gears game where Marcus Fenix is not at the heart of the campaign left me with a relatively bitter taste in my mouth. Until I played Judgment, I couldn’t imagine a Gears game without playing as the poster boy of the entire franchise. I expected this to be a great game, but nothing that previous Gears titles didn’t offer.
Summary: Like most lethargic spin-offs, the action in this misguided romp sees Hellboy battling through a legion of Identikit enemies, in turn opening a gateway to the next challenge, which sees him battling through a legion of Identikit enemies, in turn opening a gateway to the next challenge, which sees him battling… oh, you get the idea.
