Picking up where the 2003 movie release left off, Hulk follows the plight of troubled scientist Bruce Banner and his enraged alter ego, Hulk, as they battle against the terrifying forces of The Leader - a villain bent on using Hulk's unique gamma energy for his own evil purposes. Now Bruce must pursue his new foe through San Francisco, into Alcatraz, out of heavily guarded military installations and finally to the terrifying, surreal Freehold of the Leader himself.

Hulk gameplay largely comprises of two dominant playing styles, which differ depending on whether your role is as the Hulk or Bruce. Playing as Bruce, players must engage Metal Gear-esque tactics, using stealth and logic to navigate the game’s 30 sizeable levels whilst solving myriad puzzles along the way. Alternatively, players can wreak havoc as the Hulk, using the brute strength and fury to overcome many obstacles and to defeat most oncoming enemies and bosses before facing The Leader himself.

With respect to technicalities and visuals, the PC instalment is the strongest of the five available versions. The visuals are obviously dependent on the spec of the PC, but even with minimum system requirements, those typical cartoon superhero visuals look impressive. The controls of the PC version aren’t quite as ergonomic as those seen in its console counterparts, but are respectable nonetheless.

Environments look great and are very interactive, with fully destructible objects that can be torn apart or manipulated with relative ease. Some can even be used as weapons. They come in especially handy when facing gamma-enhanced super-villains such as Flux and Rampage, as does Hulk’s selection of special attacks such as the Sonic Clap and Gamma Slam.

Complete with high quality video footage, a crisp soundtrack and the voice talents of Eric Bana, Hulk is certainly an authentic representation of the big screen equivalent and is definitely worth a look.
