The following originally appeared in the latest issue of Game Informer:

The video game adaptation of The Hulk is currently slated to ship a few weeks before the motion picture arrives in theaters, which is odd since the events in the game actually take place one year after the ending of the film.

The story is a gripping one that sees a troubled Bruce Banner coming to terms with his menacing alter ego. In a startling turn of events, Bruce is betrayed by a longtime colleague, and forced to release the essence of the Hulk into the... well, we don't want to ruin the surprise for you. Just know that there is a very interesting fate in store for our big, green hero.

As it turns out, the Leader, a familiar gamma villain from the comic series, is somehow tied to the events at hand and is intent on world domination. He's even assembled an army of gamma creatures to secure his place at the top of the food chain. To combat this force, the player will be asked to play the game in two distinct ways. You'll need the brawn and rage of the Hulk, as well as the brains and sneaking abilities of Bruce Banner.

The action unfolds through 30 different stages- some of which are taken straight from the movie. Since the Hulk can plow through concrete, everything in the environments is destructible- buildings, signs, trucks, floors, and whatever else you can wrap your green mitts around. The Hulk can tap into more than 25 different attacks, including the Gamma Slam and Sonic Clap.

Universal has even secured the voice talent of film cast members, including the main man himself, Eric Bana. As one would hope, the primary focus of this game is nonstop carnage. We can't wait to see how it shapes up in the end.
