The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction (VU Games) With a story worthy of the great green anti-hero and with writing worthy of the best of Hollywood's action flicks, Hulk muscled his way into the list. Diverse missions, sizzling graphics and crazy enemy battles make this the best comic-book based game of the year.
Halo 2 (Microsoft) It wasn't quite as new as Halo, and the single player game was a little too short. And while I never liked the name of the main character, Master Chief, the game showcases the heft of the original Xbox hardware. In other words, you feel you're playing within this sci-fi world. Especially good when it comes to online play, Halo 2 is a very worthy, well-written and long-awaited followup.
