A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The Hulk represents the violent tendencies that live inside every human. Indulging in "ultimate destruction" means indulging that beast.
Violence & Scariness
Rampant destruction of cars, buildings, people, tanks, fast food restaurants, you name it. But the violence against humans is bloodless and does not factor much into the game.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the subtext of this series revolves around releasing repressed rage and the desire that normally reserved, rational people have to solve their problems with physical violence. The Hulk destroys everything in his path, tossing cars, battling helicopters, and swinging a club in a gruesome game of human "baseball."
Is It Any Good?
Parents may have trouble stomaching the scale of devastation their kids can wreak in the game. Innocent pedestrians are killed by Hulk's mere walking, while more grisly violence can be exacted with some effort (like holding a person in one fist while pummeling him with the other). Explosions are massive (and impressive) with much collateral damage. The only consolation is that the game features no blood.
But this a polished product: The city and buildings have amazing detail, with distinct neighborhoods, unique architecture, meticulous texture and features. Players will enjoy exploring the wide-open world and playing with some of the Hulk's powers: jumping across the city without touching the ground, stacking cars on top of a building, or swinging a club in a gruesome game of human "baseball." Players will quickly master the basic controls, but dozens of special moves may require some time to master.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
