Not as bad as some would say.
I'm a fan of Hellboy and the first movie (still waiting to see the second) so I was curious to see how well the game was. Visuals are nice and the sound is decent. Controls could use some fine tuning. There are a few bugs in the game and the most annoying one is the grapping the enemy one. It really don't become a factor until later in the game and can be very annoying when dealing with the larger creatures. Nearly as annoying is having to reload after every shot. Hellboy has a six shot revolver so why is he having to reload between each shot? It's not like the shots do much damage anyway (yeah the crystal bullets are cool but thats only for one level). Game has no difficulty settings so the game gets a tad more difficult near the end but pretty much anyone can burn thru this game with no problem. At a retail price of $60, even hardcore Hellboy fans would joke on that price. The co-op does add some much needed replay value but unless you can find it for $30, I would rent it.
