What Gamespot Users have to say about Hellboy: The Science of Evil

  • User Rating 6.5

    Hellboy comes out a couple weeks before the movie, and while it's not based on the movie it still dissapoints.

    Rated on June 27, 2008 by TheVinster

    [Notice at bottom for people who liked this review.] So as mentioned this game does come out about 2 weeks before the movie, which is peculiar. That is, until, you learn it has nothing to do with t...

    Obviously a labor of love, but not the most technically proficient. Think of the Evil Dead games.

    I'm a rabid fan of the Hellboy movie and comics, so my review's hardly going to be unbiased. I am, however, someone who had very high hopes for this game, and wasn't left disappointed. The Good: ...

    A dissapointment to Hellboy.

    Rated on July 04, 2008 by Adams134g

    First off the game is incredibly short. The graphics arn't good and the monsters are very generic. Very, very repititive. The weapons are fun and interesting but the monster arn't much of a challenge....

    Somebody just stepped on the big guy's tail

    Rated on July 08, 2008 by stinkfinger724

    This game is so bad, I really don't want to review it right now. But I should so that you don't have to play this game. There are six missions in the whole game, each which last over an hour each s...

    Oh Crap....it's only for Hellboy fans

    Rated on July 10, 2008 by blindclown2000

    So I guess with the new Hellboy movie coming out very soon, someone decided that it was just time to give old Red his own video game. Well actually, he's been put in video game before, but from what ...

    Care to Send Some Demons Back to Hell?

    Rated on July 27, 2009 by _Doomsayer_

    Hellboy: The Science of Evil is a beat 'em up starring the trash-talking, demon slayer in an original story unrelated to either movie. The story begins with Hellboy hunting a witch through a forest i...

    A typical boring brawler.

    Rated on July 21, 2008 by Talisac

    If you're not a Hellboy fan (and that is a fan of the comic books) you'll want to keep your distance from this game. Everything begins in gorgeous Romania, which is land to an absurd amount of legends...

    "Everyone's a critic." (long review)

    Rated on September 11, 2008 by Stabby

    As we know movie tie ins usually, to be blunt and low brow "suck as" usually for the reason that they're rushed to the selves in time for the release of the particular movie itself. Of course most of ...

    This game is so dissapointing that it is hard to recommend to even Hellboy fans.

    Rated on October 31, 2008 by sivasiva

    Hellboy:Science of evil doesn't follow the movie Hellboy 2: The golden Army. Instead it has a storyline of its one which is bleak. The storyline is very boring and doesn't capture the gamer's attentio...
