    IF I HAD BROUGHT IT I WOULD HAVE BROKE IT..

    This game is far beyond horrific for even the most notorious of die hard beat em up gamers. I didn't notice a story line to begin with and second of all the combat is so repetitious I had to put it down after about 10 mi... Read Full Review

    Care to Send Some Demons Back to Hell?

    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 inhabited by imps and... Read Full Review

    This has been reviewed way to harshly. And I doubt people even played it.

    I think the low standards of Movie Games cause people to hate this too much and not concentrate on what it is which is a fairly decent game good enough to rent and possibly buy if the price is right. If you like Devi... Read Full Review

    My brain hurts.

    This game is miss-represented. It's game play trailers may look fun, but do not be deceived...the only thing this title could do to entertain me is bubble up in a microwave and shower me with pretty sparks. It's one l... Read Full Review

    Rent me first!

    What can I say positive about this game? Not much, unfortunately. While I did enjoy my play through, I doubt I would re-visit the game again as there just isn't much reason to do so. As others have said, game play is ... Read Full Review

    Not bad for the first 2 chapters, but quickly gets very boring, repetative, and tedious. Good for some easy achievement

    Me, being some what of an achievement monger thought I'd give this game a try after reading that it had some very easy achievements. I had a free rental from Hollywood Video, so I went and picked it up. At first I thou... Read Full Review

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

    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 attention. The mission desig... Read Full Review

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

    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 these are based on c... Read Full Review
