Vivendi and Special Ops Media have decided to get in on the superhero action. With the success of the Spiderman: The Movie game, and the impending Ultimate Spiderman, superheroes are back in style. Who better to join Spidey and all his pals than mild mannered Bruce Banner?

Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

It seems as if Ultimate Destruction is a fairly apt name for the new Incredible Hulk game. Special Ops promotes the game with the promise, "The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction allows players to jump anywhere, climb anything and smash everything - even destroy entire buildings - as the Hulk, the strongest superhero there is! Players will create their own Hulk-powered weapons from almost anything they can rip out of the environment, unlock new moves to battle a variety of huge enemies in epic boss fights and experience deep and varied game elements by exploring free-roaming non-mission and side mission gameplay."

If the major attraction of the game is destruction, most gamers will want to explore and destroy at their leisure, so the non-linear (or at least not only linear) quality of the game makes sense. The game has the potential to be Zelda-esque. But I am always a little wary of games that market big names at opportune moments (e.g. The Lord of the Rings series). About half turn out OK, with the last half divided between the great and the terrible.

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction comes out for Xbox, Gamecube, and PS2 on August 23.

Stay tuned for updates.
