This wasn't a bad game. Many aspects of it where well done, and it's probably a good game for kids. I found it a bit redundent. The levels never really seemed to change from one to the next. It was however fun.
While many may view this title as a simple movie based tack on, it stands as a testament to how Krome Studios (the developers) stayed so true to the Hellboy formula, that it holds true all the things that made so many people fall in love with the original comics. And while the gameplay is nothing more than a simple beat-em up, it manages to hold a great aesthetic appeal in terms of depth and the seemingly lack of repetition. Although I don't see this as a solid buy, it is great for a service such as a Gamefly since this title warrants a solid rent simply because it lets people know what makes Hellboy so great. I mean, as a fan of the original comics, I may be biased but it holds up as great introduction to the Hellboy universe and its amazing cast of characters and many of the new villains that the game introduces. In all the sums, its an amazing introduction with completely bearable gameplay that never really gets repetitive. I would recommend it to so many people that it may seem like I am a over flamboyant fan, but trust me when I say that it is a decent good game that warrants a super solid rent.
