PC games: Hulk

Everyone loses their temper from time to time, but Dr Bruce Banner seems to have a shorter fuse than most. Getting hacked off causes a freakish transformation in him that makes Mr Hyde look like a fluffy bunny rabbit.

Originally a comic book, The Incredible Hulk was also a successful television series, and this game has been timed to coincide with the release of the movie. It’s not just available on the PC, either, with PlayStation 2, GameCube and Xbox versions due for release. However, Hulk is best suited to console gameplay. If you want to play it on the PC you’ll need a decent joypad or joystick, because trying to control Bruce Banner or the Hulk with the keyboard is near impossible.

Hulk is a huge game — it spans three discs — and if you persevere with it you will find hours of entertainment. Sadly, it isn’t of the highest quality. The graphics aren’t particularly stunning, either, with developer Vivendi Universal keeping the original comic book animation style. I guess this title will please the purists, but if you’re after lifelike visuals then this isn’t going to do it for you — expect ridiculous plotlines and naff-looking baddies.

Overall, Hulk is difficult to play, visually disappointing — there were better-looking games on the market five years ago — and it’s a bit boring. If you insist on buying this game, then get the console version rather than the PC title.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
