  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. An adequate, albeit unbalanced, action title whose appeal is broader than the teen rating implies.
  3. 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.
  4. 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]
  5. The gameplay is rarely exciting, quite repetitive and often very frustrating; never a good combination.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

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! Collapse

    This review contains spoilers, click expand 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.
