It's coming out tomorrow and I haven't seen ANYTHING resembling a review for the game.

Which doesn't bode well.

Anyone find one yet?

I'm confident...if it was crap they would just release it day and date with the movie.

I hope it's good. I WANT it to be good.

But after Iron Man...and now this no review thing. Usually means the publishers are with holding games for review because they know it's gonna get blasted.

Hopefully that's not the case, and the reviews will start today/tonight.

Hey, somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most licensed games crap anyway? Can somebody list me licensed games that are actually worth renting/buying, 'cuz I got burned by stuff from the past (insert most Star Wars, Star Trek, Ultraman, etc.) that I just skip 'em altogether now.

I thought that the hulk game was being held back till Friday this week?



In any case...I have a friend who worked on the game. I REALLY hope that it does well. Not just for him...but because I thought Hulk:Ultimate Destruction was awesome. However due to what I know about the game...and how many problems they had with getting it done. I fear for it a bit.

This game looks exactly like the last Hulk game. Rip out lamp posts and fling them into the helicopters and bouncing around the city, destroying the city and all.
















That said... ripping out lamp posts and flinging them into the helicopters and bouncing around the city, destroying the city and all was pretty fun the first time.

But if that's all this game is going to be, I'll buy the old one.

Hulk Ultimate Destruction is one of the greatest licensed games ever.

And this game looks like a next gen version of that game. So I'm really wanting this game to not suck.

Spider-Man 2 is still the best Spider-Man game ever made.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is really fun.

Yeah...I don't think it's coming out tomorrow. Gamefly has a gap of three days between Lego Indy and Hulk.

No, it's out Thursday.

Closest thing was Gamespot reviewing an almost finished build.

Reason there's no reviews yet is cause they were working up to the last minute to finish the game, same with the movie.

Good, maybe it's not as bad as I feared.

Surfer Girl said the developers were panicking in the late stages because it sucked. Maybe they turned it around though. I'm keeping my expectations low.

I loved Ultimate Destruction. Probably the most fun I have had playing a comic book video game. I know that might sound like a backhanded comment. But it is REALLY fun. Anyone still looking to give it a shot, do yourselves a favor!

Red Hulk will likely be on all consoles, just unlockable from the beginning at Gamestop if you preorder the 360 version.

Joe Fixit is the 360's exclusive, and Planet Hulk is the PS3 exclusive.

Hopefully DLC will have both appearing on all consoles.

Wow, I had no idea this was coming out later this week. I only played through a tiny bit of the original Ultimate Destruction game, so this will be a new experience for me.

Plus, I'm a damn sucker for unlockable skins. The more, the better.

I heard that to unlock the Iron Man skin you have to have a save game file from the SEGA Iron Man game.


Sooo...

Anyone want to give me $5 to rent it so I don't have to waste my own money on the damn game?
