Hellboy: Science Of Evil

AV Club
12 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Add this alongside Sega's stale Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk games on the growing list of console-based superhero disappointments for the year.
  • Pros: Ron Perlman's droll delivery as Hellboy. Coming upon a strange-looking enemy, he says, "Hey, pickle-head." You may keep playing just to hear his next zing-free zinger.
  • Cons: Enemies gang up on Hellboy like it's his first night in Shawshank. Seeing him repeatedly knocked to his knees isn't just unpleasant, it also betrays the spirit of the character.

Hellboy: The Science of Evil Review

5 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Bored of Devil May Cry 4, God of War 2 and Ninja Gaiden 2? Can't wait for SEGA's Bayonetta? Do you think Konami's Hellboy looks like a good stop-gap game to tide you over? Think again. It seems as though Hellboy: The science of evil has been in development for ages, but that hasn't prevented it from being an utterly generic, dull hack 'n' slash that fails to capitalise on even a tenth of what Hellboy as a character could bring to video games.

Hellboy: The Science of Evil

Hardcore Gamer
20 October 2008
  • 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.

Hellboy: The Science of Evil (PSP)

The Review Busters
10 October 2008
  • 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.

Hellboy: The Science of Evil

4 August 2008
  • 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.

Expert Review

4 August 2008
  • Summary: There is a moment in Hellboy: Science of Evil when you have to face off against a hideous gorilla/octopus hybrid. It roars with anger as its slimy tentacles writhe like sloppy worms. At this point, your adrenaline should gush as you raise your stone-encrusted fist to do battle with this horrific abomination. In practice, you'll slurp up a rogue strand of drool as you halfheartedly pound your well-worn square button for the umpteenth time.
  • 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

Gears of War: Judgment

31 March 2013
  • 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.

Zur Hölle mit diesem Lizenzspiel

3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Mike Mignola erschuf einst einen Comic-Helden, der so ganz anders ist als die übliche Riege der Sprechblasenheroen: Er ist im wahrsten Sinn des Wortes ein Teufel, hat aber keine Hörner mehr, dafür stets furchtbar schlechte Laune. Tief in ihm drin steckt aber ein guter Kern. Kein Wunder also, dass die grummelige Rothaut von der U.S.
  • Pros: ordentliche (aber zu kurze) Story, amüsanter Humor, passabler Zweispielermodus, gelungener Sound
  • Cons: schnarchiges Leveldesign, keine Abwechslung, zu lange Levels, zu anspruchslos, unsaubere Kollisionsabfrage, mäßige Grafik, miese Perspektivenführung
