The Incredible Hulk: The Pantheon Saga is a video game that was developed by Attention To Detail and Silicon Dreams and published by Eidos Interactive for the Sony PlayStation, Sega Saturn and DOS in 1996. The single player, side-scrolling action game is loosely based on storylines from the early 1990s issues of the Incredible Hulk comic book series.

Storyline

In the 1990s, the Incredible Hulk comic book series featured the Hulk (now with the Bruce Banner and Hulk personalities merged into a functional whole) being kidnapped by the Pantheon superhero team/family, and eventually agrees to lead the team to combat global problems such as terrorism and war in the Middle East. The video game only loosely draws upon the Pantheon storyline, borrowing characters but not plot elements from the original comic book.

The video game begins with the Piecemeal, Trauma, Lazarus, the U-Foes and the Maestro.

Gameplay

The Hulk can jump, punch, kick, and pick up certain large objects to throw as projectiles. Aside from the normal health bar, the Hulk also has a gamma energy bar that is depleted whenever the Hulk uses one of his special fighting moves. Several levels require the Hulk to solve a puzzle (i.e. locate and smash control panels in a certain order) to proceed.

The game includes a password feature to save progress.

Reception

The Incredible Hulk: The Pantheon Saga has received generally negative reviews. GameSpot gave the PlayStation version a 2.4/10, citing a confusing storyline, choppy animation, a mediocre soundtrack, and overly easy gameplay.[1] IGN gave the game a 5/10, saying that the gameplay is tedious, but the game as a whole "isn't as bad as most Acclaim games of the same formula".[2]
