|Well for awhile this was one of the best games i had played when i had my ps2. When you first get this game, if you are a hulk fan then you will be impressed by the game and will keep you occupied for awhile but half way through it can get slightly boring, the story line gets pretty pointless, and once you have completed the game it will get really boring. Yes the freeroaming is excellent for awhile and yes as usual it gets boring and not fun anymore. So this is a brilliant game to either buy cheap or rent.|

|Since I started this game Ive been playing it non-stop, it is fantastic. The sort of game that keeps you hooked and doesnt let go. The upgrades are superb, such as the double dash, sonic clap, etc. As you progress through the game you accumulate tokens to use on purchasing upgrade moves and as well as that there is special unlockable features such as comic covers and artwork.|
Anyone who has read my review for Spider-man 2 can see my opinion of it and that should show you that this is a much better game than the rushed, cash-in effort of Spiderman 2. The graphics for Ultimate Destruction are alot more polished than with other games, fair enough the characters look terrible in the cutscenes close up, but the game itself plays like a dream and the vast cityscape is far superior to Spiderman 2 and just slightly better than Ultimate Spiderman.
I would disagree with comparisons to GTA and say this game is alot more like Destroy All Humans than GTA, so dont buy this looking for a GTA-type game. This game is similar to Mercenaries Playground of Destruction aswell.
The size of the cityscape is alot larger than what other reviews say, plus there is the addition of the desert level. I would certainly not say the game is samey as you get to do such varied things at each stage of the game, such as bonus challenge missions (car football, hangliding to a specific spot, jumping from building to building without touching the ground, etc) and using a truck as a disguise for the Hulk (check those green feet sticking out from under the truck - very cool). The bosses are tricky and the game sometimes feels like its thrown you in at the deep end, but thats part of the thrill.
Mercy and The Hulkbuster controlled by General Ross are two of the toughest bosses (Ive yet to reach Devil Hulk).
The definitive Hulk and Marvel game. Recommended to gamers everywhere. Superb.

|As the big, green, wrecking machine you stomp around a city, destroying everything and completing missions in the hope of Bruce Banner FINALLY striking on the illusive cure for his curse.|
Ultimate Destruction is fun! Absolutely anything is a target for the Hulks insatiable thirst for carnage, from lampposts to skyscrapers. Theres a fantastic array of upgrades to be added to the Hulks arsenal that range from turning a car into a pair of boxing gloves to riding a bus like a skateboard and the enemies just keep getting bigger and bigger as the game progresses. Indeed, for your first hour of play, Ultimate Destruction seems like the most fun youve had with a computer game since Rampage first hit the Spectrum (or C64, for those who went that way).
Alas, there are only so many times you can bring down an attacking helecopter with an uprooted tree before the whole thing starts to get a bit samey. I never thought Id tire of ripping the turret off a tank and battering a 60 ft mech with it, but I was wrong.
The problem with this game (aside from its lack of story) is there is so little variety. Yes, the list of upgrades is quite extensive, but once youve seen them all a couple of times, the thrill is gone. The city itself is also TINY. Gamers now being used to the grandure of San Andreas and Manhattan (in its various forms) will quickly tire of jumping around the same buildings over and over.
My advice to anyone is to RENT this game.
