Conclusion: I was very surprised in playing The Hulk. It’s just too easy to pass this game off as a cash-cow milker. I’m not a huge Hulk fan (or any comic book character, for that matter), but some of my friends are and they were thoroughly impressed by the accuracy of the game world. While the Bruce Banner missions are mind-numbing and the camera could use some extra tweaking, the Hulk still manages to play very smoothly and delivers an aura of excitement that can only be felt...

Excerpt: Ah that loveable green guy... no, I am not talking about Kermit the Frog, I am referring to the Hulk. I grew up reading the adventures of Spider-Man and the X-Men and never gave much attention to the Hulk.

Surprisingly, it is a fun--yet shallow--experience.
