REVIEW: HELLBOY: ASYLUM SEEKER (PSOne)

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 10/13/2013 The history behind Hellboy: Asylum Seeker may in fact be more interesting than the game itself: In the 1990’s, Cryo Studios (the original developer behind this game) was intended to be branded as DHI, or Dark Horse Interactive, and tasked with making games based on properties that the comic…
