Conclusion: I would say that if you're looking for something to past the time between the top game releases, and want something that doesn't take any real thought to get though it or get you annoyed because you get stuck and cant be bothered to carry on.
Conclusion: Regrettably it’s tempting to think that the purported involvement of both Mignola and del Toro has been given such primary billing to fill press release headlines and suck in eager fanboys, such is the slowly strength-sapping experience of playing Science of Evil.
Excerpt: I'm never excited to hear about a game tied into a movie. Aside from 2004's Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay , I can't think of a good one. So when I heard about the Hellboy movie game I couldn't help but think, “Ah crap.
Conclusion: Again my superhero friends fail me. While the game has a bit of charm, that is mostly my affection for the title character coming through and not the actual game itself. The gameplay is dull and repetitive, the graphics and audio mediocre at best and the achievements are a complete drag.
Excerpt: Games based on popular movie licenses generally fall into one of two categories; there are those like the recent Iron Man , tightly tied to a current film release, as well as the movie’s narrative.
Conclusion: Science Of Evil sits comfortably among the worst games we’ve played this generation. It’s so mind-numbing and monotonous that if you’re not careful, you can almost zone out entirely white playing it and not take in how amazingly poor it is in every single respect– you’ll come to several minutes...
Conclusion: Hellboy SoE isn’t a bad looking game either. The fixed camera mean that there are never any frame rate problems or tearing, and the screen(s) can get quite busy with 10 or more creatures attacking HB (and friend) at a time.
Pros: Good solid beat ‘em up fare, Co-op modes
Cons: Typically repetitive, Fiddly pickups and ammo/weapon management
Summary: Not so much Hellboy as Hell No, this game is a massive disappointment. Poorly designed, poorly implemented and awful to play this is one to avoid. If you really love the Big Red one keep reading the comics, go see The Golden Army and maybe, just maybe, rent the game on a rainy afternoon.
