Overall: For a kids game this is a lot of fun. Was
playing it with my nephew after seeing the
film and it is killer. No, you will not find
gore of the Suffering or Manhunt, nor the
intricacy and storytelling of Fable or
KOTOR, but as far as Super Mario Bros.-
type gameplay goes, this one is great.
With each level you get to become a
different member of the Incredibles family.
If you have kids or if you liked the film,
buy this! Gameplay: Basically you run, jump and fight your way
through the levels, much as the characters
did in the movie. As Mr. Incredible you
break things, jump huge distances, and
smash the ground so hard that enemies
go flying. Mrs. Incredible has stretched out
limbs to help her flip or swing about, and
Dash runs at like 200 mph through city
streets (my favorite part). Controls are
easy to learn, although Frozone will give
you some instructions early on.
The game is clearly superior to that piece
of crap adaptation, Finding Nemo. Graphics: Beautiful visuals, very similar to the look
of the film. Fight your way through cities
and lush jungles. No, this game does not
look as good as Splinter Cell, but this is a
whole different genre. When measured
against other kids games it is pretty good. Sound: This has hands down some of the best
sound design of any game I have played.
The music, the effects, the dialogue all
work to perfection. Best of all the sound
is unobtrusive -- once you are into the
story and gameplay you feel like you are in
the Incredibles universe. Suggestions: More Dash levels next time. And how
about a Frozone level???
