Worse, even, than your "typical" movie adaptation game

Summary: I think we all know that movie adaptation games are normally so-so at best, but this game is terrible. Graphics: Horrible. One of those games where you can't really control the camera, and sometimes your character gets "lost" on the screen. Plus everything is vaguely "fuzzy". Game play: BORING. Same thing over and over again. Plot is completely not engaging in the least. Let me put it to you this way. I was 40 points away from 10,000 XBOX achievement points.
Summary: Being a fan of Hellboy, I was kind of looking forward to Hellboy: The Science of Evil. However, also being a veteran gamer, I wasn't looking all that forward to the game, simply because of the terrible history of licensed video games. Well, I didn't expect too much out of the game, but what you get here may even be below your lowest expectations.
Conclusion: After reading the other reviews on play I assumed that this was going to be good. But after playing for even a few minutes I realised it really wasn't going to be. The game seems to start without any real story, it starts more like something on a commodore would, a short description and no indication of whats actually going on. Incredibly linear, theres only 1 path to follow.
