    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.
  2. Younger kids that love the Incredibles but aren't exactly skilled gamers are going to have the best time with this game.
  3. While the game doesn't do much in the way of gameplay, the presentation makes up for it.
  4. A fun little superhero romp targeted toward pre-teens. There are a few balancing issues and the game really needs to be played with two people at all times even if you do end up arguing over who gets to play Mr. Incredible.
  5. 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.
  6. If only someone would take the time to craft a truly epic scale video game set in this universe.
  7. Platform junkies will dig the challenges and combinations of different powers each character has, movie fans will enjoy the continuation of the story and their favorite characters, and gamers just looking for an innocent rental won't be disappointed either.
  8. The paint-by-numbers action doesn't kill the game entirely, but without any real diversity throughout the linear levels, plus the extremely short duration, the game is placed squarely as a rental for fans of The Incredibles. For everyone else, move along. It's nothing you haven't seen before.
  9. Underground and underwhelming, it's a shame none of that Pixar magic rubbed off on this. [Official UK XBox Magazine]

    Not as good as the original game, but worth checking out by fans of the first game and film.
  11. The gameplay has its setbacks and doesn't really evolve, but it still offers fun two-player beat-em-up action and has a better presentation than it deserves.
  12. 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.
