  1. If you liked the movie, you'll probably like the game, as it's a near-perfect blend of classic gameplay with the production values and design of the film.
  2. The variety of powers you can control and the humorous and likable characters can really bring out the "hero" in you. It offers more than your typical platformer.
  3. Each of the playable characters has such unique moves and play control that it's like playing five separate games under one unifying story. [Dec 2004, p.141]
  4. An adequate, albeit unbalanced, action title whose appeal is broader than the teen rating implies.
  5. The levels have been designed fairly well for the most part, but sometimes it gets a little frustrating having to begin again and again on a few levels, because of inefficient camera controls.
  6. A light action game that ties into the movie very well, and those that loved the movie and want to spend time with these characters should enjoy it.
  7. 70
    And while the game never quite reaches "Incredible" levels, it's still a good enough game to warrant checking out if you enjoyed the movie. Just don't expect to have to spend much time with it.
  8. A pretty good platform game, but it really offers nothing new to the market.
  9. Definitely aimed at the younger audiences, The Incredibles is an adequate but unremarkable action game on its own. The license certainly does help thanks to Pixar's unique charm and the game includes a variety of movie footage and trailers to please fans of the film.
  10. I personally can say that I am looking forward to The Incredibles 2.
  11. The Incredibles is just not that "incredible". It's an okay game, fraught with minor issues on a technical front and saved by high production values and attention to detail in less substantial areas.
  12. The Incredibles seems to be going a little old school with this trial and error concept. For some that may be a challenge but for others it's just pure annoyance.
  13. 65
    It nails the feel of the movie and boasts varied gameplay, not to mention features damn funny voiceovers. Unfortunately, sloppy control and tired gameplay muddles the experience.
  14. I might have recommended this simplistic formula for younger gamers except for the fact that encounters with Omnidroid are some of the most tedious and unforgiving bouts I've ever fought. [Jan 2005, p.118]
  15. The Incredibles game had some great material to work with, but the energy and humor that really made the movie great just isn't there - out-of-context voice clips and poorly connected cut-scenes certainly don't add anything. [Jan 2005, p.132]
  16. The game doesn't buck the trend of mediocrity, offering a fairly unremarkable experience that puts you through the motions of the film's plot without capturing any of its essence.
  17. The gameplay is rarely exciting, quite repetitive and often very frustrating; never a good combination.
  18. An average tie-in that's not without its merits, and one that will appeal to fans of the film and a younger audience. Jaded older gamers however will find very little to sustain your interest.
  19. Blame the short development time. Blame laziness. Blame the film licence curse. Blame whatever you want but the end result is The Incredibles is rental-only, as you'll see everything the game has to offer by the time you hand it back to the monkey behind the Blockbusters till.
  20. 60
    The game's graphics do a swell job of mimicking the trademark Pixar look and the levels are all based on the more memorable action sequences from the film. The game play, however, tastes like leftovers: clobber a bunch of bad guys, flip switch, repeat.
  21. A decent game to play if you're obsessed with the adventures of the family Parr, but it could have used a lot more polish and whimsy where it counts.
  22. Tedious, buggy, irritating gameplay.
  23. Lucky for Disney that dull console games don't seem to affect the performance of big movies at the box office. [NGC]
  24. I place the blame almost squarely on the lameness of it all directly on Pixar's shoulders because the super powers featured in The Incredibles are nothing short of boring. Super strength, elastic powers, invisibility and super speed just don't really cut it when it comes to really cool super powers and they don't translate into exciting gameplay either.
  25. There is no shortage of action, plus bonus battle arenas, but it's not all super. Boss battles are foolishly difficult and will prove very frustrating for youngsters, and some of the Mr Incredible sections become very repetitive, with wave after wave of mindless goons to dispatch. The controls also lack precision.
  26. As a standard third-person action-platformer, there's nothing substantially wrong with THQ's take on The Incredibles, but neither is there anything original.
  27. 40
    The greatest crime depicted in the game isn't Syndrome's machinations, but the speed with which the lame design renders dull action out of such cool characters.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Now this is a hard game to review, as it was the majority of my childhood- my nostalgia goggles might be thick here.
    Let me just start with saying do NOT pass up on it just because it's a movie licensed game. It is fun, entertaining, and gives the same feel as the movie. It has a similar (and sometimes the same) score, and plenty of unique levels besides the regular 3D beat-em-up ones (which are, honestly, a majority of the game). The voice actors reprise their roles to give it the movie's feel in an interactive environment (AND FROZONE NARRATES THE MAIN MENU, SO IF YOU AREN'T SATISFIED WITH THE GAME'S VOICE ACTING I'M HONESTLY NOT SURE THAT YOU'RE HUMAN). The level where you have to get to school as Dash has become iconic in our family, almost as iconic as the level based on the scene in the movie where Violet creates a force-field ball and Dash runs inside of it. That level was so hard back then, watching the scene in the movie makes us cringe. All in all, it's a genuinely good game, and definitely worth checking out. I'm sure it's not that expensive on amazon/ebay.

Each hero who you play as you use their special talents to progress through the game. It's actually a pretty entertaining game. The pounding on people with Mr. Incredible doesn't get old., and the missions are awesome. I would recommend this game for anyone on Game Cube! Full Review »
