Well, that's just icing on the cake right there. Below is a guide of the latest cheats and tips for The Incredible Hulk on the PS2 system. Read on and you will find everything from secret characters to a massive library of upgrades and special features.

Special Abilities in The Incredible Hulk
Unlockable Special Abilities
These abilities are, for the most part, extensions of your natural powers as the Hulk. Feats of incredible strength allow you to use vehicles as boxing gloves, sprint for an extended period of time, jump to extreme heights, and so forth. Almost all of these abilities are unlocked through playing the game normally, but some of them you'll have to go out of your way to locate. We tell you how below!
Improved Jump: Pick a fight and Hulk will increase his maximum jump distance.
Shield Use: Destroy Enclave base just for the initial time and Hulk will be able to perform fight combos with a shield.
