"The Hulk game demo is perfect for consumers of the DVD, allowing Xbox owners to interact with their favorite hero in an original adventure."
The demo provides one playable level for Xbox which showcases the title's fully interactive environments and the awesome power of the Hulk. Picking up a year after the events of the film, the game follows the plight of troubled scientist Bruce Banner and his enraged alter ego, Hulk, as they battle against the terrifying forces of the Leader - a villain intent on using the Hulk's gamma energy to unleash a relentless army of gamma creatures on the world. Players can master two types of game play as either Bruce Banner or The Hulk as they battle lead characters from the film, familiar enemies from the Marvel Universe(tm) or new villains created specifically for the game.
