|Hellboy is a third-person
action-adventure game in which you play as Mike Mignola's comic-book hero
and paranormal investigator. The game takes place in 1960's Prague, during Hellboy's
early work with the BPRD (British Paranormal Research Division). Hellboy and Sara are
investigating their missing agent Peter, who lost contact with his team somewhere in
Czechoslovakia. It's up to Hellboy to uncover the events surrounding that disappearance,
and set things right. Gameplay is similar to Capcom's Resident Evil series, with
adventure-game dialogue and puzzles punctuated with fights. The game is fully 3D, with
a bleak artistic style that is unlike the comic. They find themselves locked up in a
lunatic asylum where they discover more than they bargained for. Someone in the asylum
is trying to open a gateway that will give passage to the forces of darkness,
unleashing unimaginable terror on the world. The game alternates between traps, puzzles
and combat sequences where thought is just as important as reflexes and dexterity.
Navigate Hellboy through 6 dark, gothic episodes where evil lurks around every corner.
From an old cemetery to the Forbidden Library, the Asylum to the Torture Room, Hellboy
must be quick in mind and light on his feet to investigate the strange occurrences that
has plagued the world around him.
