A few years ago there was another Hulk game that took the green machine on a rampage through an open-world New York. Years later, this game does essentially the same thing, except with shoddy controls.
Yes Hulk is back to destroy another virtual New York, but he's brought a terrible camera, overly complicated special attacks and way more mechs than it would seem plausible to use.
But let's address these issues one at a time. First, the camera: to change your camera angle, you press a button to bring up a pointer. The pointer moves the camera, but it gets trapped behind objects and in places where the Hulk is barely visible. And try playing the game while you're constantly adjusting your camera... it doesn't work. Special attacks: These are chosen from a menu. After you select one, you have to shake the nunchuk and then press the B button before the screen goes away. Why? Because the developers wanted to use motion-sensor technology somewhere. Mechs: These flying, fighting buggers are all over the place. They're not that interesting and tedious to dispatch, but there's plenty of them.
The things that work well in this game are the same things that worked in the previous one. The New York landscape is great for Hulk's destructive capabilities, buildings and cars get smashed up real good, you can use the environment effectively and there are many goals and collectibles to unlock upgrades. Sad they couldn't give us something new or fresh to enjoy this time around.
The Incredible Hulk is a "been there, done that" kind of title. It offers nothing new for the character, even taking a step back in some ways. Hulk smash game!

This game was a fun, easy mind-numbing game with not alot going on. Jump around the city(it is the best way to travel) from objective to objective, if you destroy too much of the city the law comes after you. Not much Wii use, which I liked. The constant Wii swinging can get tiresome when you only want to press a few buttons and jump around destroying stuff. If you are looking for a Wii game that utilizes the Wii remotes constantly such as Star Wars: Force Unleashed, then this game is not for you. If you are looking for a game to play for 30 mins when you have time with little physical exertion then this game might be for you. I liked this game so much I bought it off of Gamefly.
