Excerpt: Quite clearly, Pixar's latest animated movie release, The Incredibles, lives up to its name. Unfortunately, the game version follows its own tradition - the one of a great movie license getting a rush job game treatment.
Excerpt: I liked the Incredibles, the movie, a lot. We’ll get to the game in a moment. It’s not often I like a kids’ movie. I’d say it happens about once every five years. This is a curse, since I have a child and am frequently forced to suffer through her movies. The curse was recently extended into the world of gaming, once my editor discovered I not only had a kid (and access to a few others), but was willing to use them for the purposes of testing the kids’ games that...
Excerpt: The Incredibles review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com This has been a memorable year in many ways, the most relevant of which is that this is the year that movie tie-in games decided to cease to suck.
Excerpt: There were a few that still did, of course; witness Catwoman . Chronicles of Riddick , on the other hand, did a lot all by itself to change the blatant expectation of the sucking.

Cons: Disjointed plot structure that relies too heavily on you already having seen the film., Lousy enemy AI leads to highly simplistic and repetitive combat., Puzzles aren't fun or interesting., Incredibly short., Disjointed plot structure that relies too heavily on you already having seen the film., Lousy enemy AI leads to highly simplistic and repetitive combat., Puzzles aren't fun or interesting., Incredibly short.
Conclusion: The Incredibles could have been a great game and went part way there with fantastic graphics, sound and very high production values. However poor game design has produced a very repetitive, unbalanced and lacklustre gaming experience. If you don't want the story spoilt for you I would avoid playing the game until you have seen the film and only then will fans of the movie get a kick out of the game. For everyone else it is only worth a rental at best.
Pros: high production values, great graphics, playing superheroes is always cool
Cons: very repetitive, frustratingly unbalanced, not much fun to play
Excerpt: Unsere ersten Erfahrungen als Superheld sammeln wir in der Haut des Herr Unglaublich. Dabei hält sich die Story streng an die Filmvorlage, was bei diesem Kassenschlager sicher nicht schaden kann.

Pros: + Filmlizenz
+ Familie Unglaublich
