The Incredible Hulk (SNES)

Oh boy, it’s time to play yet another shitty superhero game!

Incredible Hulk000The Incredible Hulk was released in 1994 by US Gold. What’s that? You don’t remember US Gold?

Good.

As soon as the out-of-place funky music kicks in, you know you’re in for some garbage.

Incredible Hulk001Hm. Nothing homoerotic there.

Incredible Hulk003Basically, it’s a generic side-scrolling action game. The graphics are… weird, to say the least. They almost look digitized, and everything moves so fast that it’s kind of disorienting.

Incredible Hulk010Also, instead of being able to just walk over items to pick them up, you need to stop and hit the A button. Genius. I’m absolutely thrilled that you have to do that.

Incredible Hulk007Basically, the point of the game is to run around and punch everything. There’s some exploration and alternate paths, but for the most part it’s pretty straightforward.

Incredible Hulk008You can also turn into Bruce Banner, either when you take too much damage or with a transformation item. Bruce sucks, as he’s unable to attack unless you find a weapon. However, he can crawl through narrow openings, which sometimes lead to items.

Incredible Hulk012So the first boss is… Abomination, I guess? He looks like shit. Anyway, he’s a pain in the ass. Your attacks always seem to go through him and his attack range is greater than yours for some reason.

Incredible Hulk013And if you turn into Banner during the fight, there’s nothing you can do. Unless you happened to pick up a gun earlier in the stage, you have no way to fight back, and even then you only get a few shots with it. All you can really do is wait for Abomination to put you out of your misery.

Incredible Hulk016Incredible Hulk017Man, fuck this game. Even in the 2003 Hulk game, at least the Banner and Hulk segments were split up and played differently. Here, if you turn into Banner, you might as well put the controller down because the game’s pretty much over. The Incredible Hulk may not be the worst superhero game I’ve played, but it’s pretty assy nonetheless. Like The Death and Return of Superman levels of ass. Like the Leader’s ass of a head.

Don’t play it.
