The Operation Game, Hulk Style
by Mark R
I’m sure several of you are looking at this and saying: “Just what possessed Hasbro to make a version of the Operation Game with the Hulk?” I wish I could help you. The only answer I can give you is simply “because they can”.
Also, Hasbro wants to cash in on the Hulk franchise that will hopefully receive a major boost with the release of The Incredible Hulk movie this summer. I’m told that this film is not a direct sequel to Ang Lee’s The Hulk (2003). That’s fine by me, because that film was so awful, the Hulk deserves a Batman Begins like reboot.
In fact, there is a trailer for The Incredible Hulk floating around on the Internet, and it actually looks pretty good. However, at no point in time do I see Hulk on an operating table while doctors pull odd things from his body. To make this Hulk Operation game even more surreal, the box depicts Spider-man and Iron Man as the surgeons. I’m guessing that is to hype the Iron Man movie, also coming this summer, and Spider-man needs as much good hype as he can get since Spider-man 3.
The rules of the hulk Operation game are the same. The only difference is that if you touch the side, the Hulk’s eyes glow green and you hear a roar instead of a buzz.
To be honest, I just can’t believe this is a real product. The fact that I don’t have a release date or price is increasing my suspicions. However, I’ve seen dumber things made into reality.
