There is no reason to waste your time with Hellboy: Science of Evil. Even fans of the comic won't find much to dig here. The story is handled so inexpertly, it will only anger those who have invested hours reading the paper exploits of Hellboy. Weak combat and ugly visuals should deter those just looking for a solid beat-'em-up. With expectations for licensed products already so low, it's a testament to how poorly designed this game is that it can't even live up to the mediocre games around it.
