Boasting a storyline with input from Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy and Giullermo Del Toro, director of both Hellboy movies and retaining all of the visual elements and dark humour so vital to the success of the comic books, this game should appeal to all Hellboy fans. In another nod to the forthcoming film, the voice-over work features all of the main cast members from the movie including Ron Perlman, Selma Blair and Doug Jones.
The Science of Evil, as you would expect, is a brawling action title that really shows you the brutal strength
Hellboy possesses. His powers can rip apart the scenery and levels and use them as weapons against the enemy:
this is often a necessity as wave upon wave of attackers descend on Hellboy. This is a classic action game with all of the modern looks and feelings you would expect from the power of the next generation consoles.
The game has a dark and moody look interspersed with elements of good humour and plenty of action and challenges to keep players entertained at all times as Hellboy trails the sadistic Hermann von Klempt and his attempts to unleash evil on the world.
Close combat action sequences are key to the player progressing in this title and contextual grappling commands enable users to string together elaborate combination attacks in addition to the scenery manipulation and brute strength attacks you'd expect from Hellboy himself.
