Few mediums lend themselves to video games as well as comics. Ripe with super-powered individuals capable of dispatching scores of criminals, swinging between high rises and through city streets, and soaring through the air, they allow people to see the impossible brought to life, and through games, they can take on the role of these heroes for themselves. Some games have done this better than others though, and these 10 superhero games stand as the best of all time.
Top 10 Best Superhero Games of All Time
The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction
The Incredible Hulk is an embodiment of raw strength, so it’s no surprise one of his most successful video game outings saw players able to tear through cities, armies and mutated monsters alike. In a quest to gain control of his destructive tendencies, Bruce Banner secludes himself in the far-off wilderness until he is attacked by The Division, a special task force dedicated to the elimination of mutated humans. However, this proves a boon when he discovers their top of the line technology can allow him to tap into and control the strength of The Hulk. Tired of running, he decides to tackle this government force head-on, tearing through anything that stands in his way in the process.
Providing players with a veritable playground of destructible environments, enemies to crush and a story fitting of the green behemoth, Ultimate Destruction served as an example of what superhero games could be moving forward. Even with the more graphically impressive games available today, it still holds up as a game which allows players to step into the role of the hero perfectly and remains a blast even if you just want to trash a city for an hour or so.
