  1. Obviously younger audiences are going to enjoy the game more than older players, but for any self-respecting Incredibles fan, the story and the teamwork gameplay is enough to warrant a look.
  2. The game sports a good story and solid gameplay with unique abilities for the different characters. It’s more enjoyable than the first game and good filler until the second The Incredibles film.
  3. Younger kids that love the Incredibles but aren't exactly skilled gamers are going to have the best time with this game.

    It's a short, simple ride. The Incredibles 2: Rise of the Underminer offers decent fun for younger kids, but the action and puzzles won't challenge older gamers.
  5. Does a pretty good job of capturing the spirit of the film and provies some mindless laughs. Kids will love it too - trust us, we checked. [Jan 2006, p.109]
  6. The voices are great, the gameplay's not half-bad - but the AI is such an impediment that the fun quickly drains away. [Jan 2006, p.99]
  7. 40
    The gameplay is utterly basic, consisting of punching and running, but the co-operative element between two players is quite nice. Kids who loved the movie will no doubt get a kick out of this game.

    Much better than the first game. The first game wasn't bad. but this one is an improvement in the i adds something new to the franchise and the bosses are bteter the level ar desighned better and the game moves faster altogether. I played the game. i recommend this (try in co-op mode it works better). Expand

    This game offers about 15 hours of gameplay. It is better than the 1st game although this game is more fun when you play it with a friend in 2-player. It will be especially fun for fans of The Incredibles because it continues where the film left off. Expand

    If you're a die-hard fan of The Incredibles and you're young (like I was when I played it), then you're sure to enjoy this fairly enjoyable, but short romp. The gameplay is simple; you punch, kick and smash through hoardes of mindless (AI) enemies through several underground environments. The co-op and bonus missions add a fair bit to the game and the action is often pretty to look at. However, it is also often repetitive and lacks proper variety. Older gamers will also probably find the challenges and story to be a little too easy and weak. Nevertheless, if you have young un's to keep occupied; this is the game you'll want to get. Expand
