Hellboy: The Science of Evil

Playstation Illustrated
3 February 2009
  • Excerpt: It seems that it is that time of year again. It is the time when every Hollywood summer blockbuster receives a sub-par videogame tie-in. This time it is Hellboy: The Science of Evil and fortunately, it isn't a direct translation of the new Hellboy movie, but instead it tells a side story to enhance the Hellboy mythology. Visually for a PSP game, Hellboy: The Science of Evil actually looks pretty good.

A lukewarm side-story -- not movie-based.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Hellboy dispatches countless waves of enemies (supernatural creatures and later Nazi soldiers) with a combination of weapons like guns and grenades, supernatural powers like magic, and an especially strong stone-like appendage nicknamed Right Hand of Doom. There's no gore, and the violence isn't particular graphic -- there's just a lot of it.

  • Conclusion: Even with its many problems, Science of Evil manages to be a somewhat entertaining experience. Fans of Hellboy likely won't find this game to be a complete disappointment, although it honestly could have been much better. With its repetitive and sluggish gameplay, fairly short completion time, bad camera, lackluster cinematics, and complete lack of voice work, I would definitely caution eager fans to play the game before purchasing it.

Hellboy: The Science of Evil

The Gamers Temple
17 December 2008
  • Excerpt: In spite of their simultaneous release, Hellboy: Science of Evil on the PSP has nothing to do with the Hellboy II movie.  Science of Evil not only has its own original storyline, it draws upon the comics rather than the movie for its visual style.  Sometimes being different is good, but not in this case.  Science of Evil should have looked to the latest Hellboy movie (and to games that are actually fun to play) for inspiration.

This Hellboy Burns

  • Conclusion: All in all, Hellboy: Science of Evil is a pretty intolerable game. Perhaps I am most upset because I feel personally let down as a fan of the series. But I can't see anyone getting any substantial pleasure out of this title, be they fan or not. But since the majority of people who are looking to pick this one up are fans, I would advise those people to stay away from this title, as it is an extreme let-down.

  • Conclusion: A lazy GOW rip-off, Science Of Evil is a monotonous action game that struggles to offer diversity. The levels are too long and the enemies represent a lack of imagination. As dull as the source material.

Expert Review

Gry - Wirtualna Polska
13 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Już niedługo do kin trafi kolejna superprodukcja Guillermo del Toro na podstawie komiksów Mike'a Mignoli , czyli Hellboy 2 . W międzyczasie, niemal po kryjomu na rynku pojawiła się gra z naszym czerwonym bohaterem w roli głównej. Ciekawe... szczególnie, że marketingowcy zwykle nie marnują okazji, by jeszcze bardziej rozreklamować dany tytuł. No, chyba że gra nijak ma się do filmu.
