- The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction: The only entry into the S level for autonomous Pontoon the game is in an open world with a destructible environment. Whereas Pontoon the games are quite simple, Ultimate Destruction is about as simple as it gets in the best way. Its exploration and side missions are reminiscent of Grand Theft Autobut the players control Hulk and can wield a tank instead of a baseball bat.
- Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes: As a testament to its longevity, it has been two decades since its release, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 arcade cabinets are always in demand. For many hardcore fighting game fans, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is the pinnacle of the genre, and Hulk is easily one of the most enjoyable characters on the list.
- LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is one of the brand’s best-selling titles, and the huge list of fan-favorite heroes, including Bruce Banner – and a rare She-Hulk the appearance of the video game – are an integral part of it.
- Marvel: Ultimate Alliance: The first one Ultimate alliance The title is a prime example of a successful Marvel game with an ensemble cast. Unfortunately, the Hulk is one of the most simplistic characters to use, but the whole Ultimate alliance experience places it firmly in level A.
- Marvel vs. Capcom: The first one Marvel vs. Capcom is actually the third game to pit the two franchises against each other, and it’s also the second in the series to feature The Incredible Hulk. Although it doesn’t shine as bright as its successor, the original is responsible for fans asking for more. Marvel vs. Capcom games to date.
- Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds / Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3: Just like the original, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 hold on but could never achieve the glory of Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Ultimate It was also the first time the series received an official PC port, which still has an active modding community to this day. Pontoon fans can pit him against any character they can imagine, even characters from monster hunter.
- Pontoon: Unfortunately, Pontoon is a game best remembered for being overly simplistic and sometimes frustrating. Still, it’s an example of a game that nearly got Hulk right.

- Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2: The majority of fans could probably toss a coin between the original Ultimate Alliance and its sequel. The sequel improved on sometimes monotonous combat, but at the expense of the nuances found in the original.
- Questprobe with The Hulk: Despite being the game that started it all, Questprobe with Hulk barely C-tier. It’s a great graphical adventure, but even compared to its contemporaries, it just doesn’t hold up. Although the visuals cannot be questioned, Questprobe with Hulk is too simple a game to be of much interest to modern fans.
- The Incredible Hulk (1994): While it was a great platformer that offered a plethora of cool Hulk moves, as a platformer on SNES and Genesis there were too many alternate options that are superior experiences.
- The Incredible Hulk (2008): Despite the fact that the console versions and the Nintendo DS version are very different, they both suffer from the same problem: they are tedious, boring and rather uninventive. The same formula as Ultimate Destruction is attempted here, but does much worse.
- The Incredible Hulk: The Pantheon Saga: There’s not much to redeem The Pantheon saga. It’s one of those weird games where the player is constantly trying to figure out their relative position to enemies, ledges, and everything else. It’s a clunky gameplay nightmare, and could arguably be up there with the worst PlayStation 1 games of all time.
- The Incredible Hulk: Rampage! : Like most bad Pontoon Games, Carnage! is fun for about 10 minutes. It’s an isometric mobile game that feels completely lifeless due to its shallow repetition of roughly two attacks and five sound effects.
