Vivendi ships The Hulk for GameCube

Featuring a story line set after events depicted in the film, the game follows troubled scientist Bruce Banner and his enraged alter ego, The Hulk, through a smashing action-adventure, whereeverything you see can be destroyed, and everything you destroy can be a weapon. Players can master two types of gameplay as either Bruce Banner or The Hulk as they battle lead characters from thefilm, familiar villains from the Marvel Universe and new enemies created specifically for the game. With his superhuman power fueled by rage, The Hulk can smash through any physical obstacle andannihilate his foes with over 45 devastating attacks. Developed by Radical Entertainment, the Hulk for Nintendo GameCube carries a suggested retail price of $49.99. The game has been rated “Teen”with a descriptor for violence by the ESRB.

While delivering a highly satisfying gameplay experience, Vivendi Universal Games and Universal Pictures also created an integrated content program designed to reward fans who experience both thefilm and the game. Through the employment of “codes,” special movie and game content can be unlocked with a series of passwords related to the film’s plot or characters.

“We have worked closely with our theatrical partners during all stages of the game’s development to achieve a look and feel that is authentic to the Marvel source material and the upcoming featurefilm,” said Luc Vanhal, President & COO, North America of Vivendi Universal Games. “The Hulk is one of the most iconic super heroes in the world, and we are thrilled to deliver both this powerfulproduct and innovative code program to gamers and fans worldwide.”

“The Hulk game is an integral part of our commitment to provide consumers with a massive Hulk experience — one that delivers the power of the Hulk in theaters and on videogame screenssimultaneously,” said Marc Shmuger, vice chairman, Universal Pictures. “An impressive level of film to game integration has been achieved without sacrificing gameplay. The movie and the game are soclosely aligned, you actually get to be The Hulk before you’ve even seen The Hulk — it’s the ultimate wish fulfillment.”

Interactive Extension of Movie Story

With a brand new storyline distinct to the game and set after the events of the film, The Hulk follows the plight of troubled scientist Bruce Banner and his enraged alter ego, Hulk, as they battleagainst familiar enemies from the Marvel Comics world and new villains specific to this adventure. Betrayed by his long-time colleague and mentor, Professor Crawford, Bruce unwittingly releases theessence of the Hulk into an Orb, falling prey to the Leader, a villain intent on using the Hulk’s energy to unleash a relentless army of “gamma” creatures. Now Bruce must pursue his new foe throughSan Francisco, into Alcatraz, out of heavily guarded military installations and finally to the terrifying, surreal Freehold of the Leader himself. Only by facing his own shattered identity andgaining control of the beast within him will Bruce have the ability to destroy the insane intentions of the Leader.

Dual Gameplay and Action

The Hulk game allows players to master two different gameplay styles unique to both Bruce Banner and The Hulk. As Bruce Banner, the player must employ the powers of logic and stealth while strugglingto contain the Hulk inside of him in order to successfully complete missions. As the Hulk, the player must power their way through 25 massive, highly-detailed and immersive environments, directlyinspired by the film and exclusive to the game. They will face five intense boss battles, smash up to 10 enemies at once and destroy foes with over 45 devastating attacks.

Real-World Simulation

While the player controls the incredible power and rage of the Hulk, objects react to damage as they would in the real world, displaying behaviors consistent with the real effects of mass, matter andgravity. For example cars bounce off walls to show body damage, glass shatters, broken pipes roll. The smashing gameplay is enhanced as virtually any object can be manipulated, destroyed or used as aweapon.
