The Incredibles leap from the big screen to the Nintendo GameCube and are ready for action.
Mr. and Mrs. Incredible used to save the world, no questions asked. However, when they were hit with a series of lawsuits, they hung up their supersuits and tried to adapt to normal life. But a top-secret assignment pulls them back into duty to stop an evil genius.
You play as most of the Incredibles in a story firmly based on the movie. Expect some pretty incredible super-powers from most of the heroes. Mrs. Incredible can stretch her limbs to unthinkable lengths, which, you would think, helps her at competitions of impersonating rubber bands. The Incredibles' son Dash kicks it into high gear to beat the bus to school. As he does so, the environment gets caught in a heat warp (a cool effect).
Mr. Incredible may lack creativty when it comes to his super power, but he amply makes up for it with coolness. He punches things really hard. Whoo hoo! It's a tough job being less than original, but somebody has to do it. Might as well be him.
And what's not to love about Frozone? Not only can he create ice out of thin air, he's voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, making this ice king even cooler. Jackson serves as the game's energetic tutor in the nonstop opening sequence, but unfortunately, you can't play as him.
The game is highly linear. Most of the action consists of beating up a seemingly endless swarm of clueless henchmen while finessing burning buildings, electrified grids and gigantic gaps. Puzzle elements are absent and you can only play a level as one of the Incredibles, which cuts down on replayability.
Graphically the game is solid, sacrificing detailed textures and special effects for a rapid-fire frame-rate. The amped-up score is a lot of fun and the voice actors do right by the surprisingly droll lines.
Characters can grab Incredibles icons to unlock special bonus features, mostly concept art. Movie clips introduce the levels.
The Incredibles brings a lot of energy and wit to the action-platformer genre. This cheerful disk should wow anyone who has seen the movie.

The Incredibles, Pixar's latest piece of animated genius is a far cry from the sub-aquatic antics of Finding Nemo - fish is off the menu, and superheroes are the order of the day.
Mr. Incredible and his family are superheroes in hiding; swamped by lawsuits from the very people they've saved, this extraordinary clan are placed on the witness protection program by the government. Things look up when Mr. Incredible - now living as Bob Parr - is offered the chance to return to his heroic ways again, but things aren't what they seem...
THQ's action-packed PS2 tie-in takes the movie's plot as its base and then weaves in brand-new elements that are totally exclusive to the game.
You'll get the chance to play as five of the Incredibles crew, including Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible and their son, Dash. Each character has a range of special abilities that will come in useful at certain points in the adventure. For example, Mr. Incredible can use his super strength to power through enemies, while Mrs. Incredible can use her stretching powers to perform ranged attacks and swing to otherwise out-of-reach areas.
With characters and locations that are closely modelled on their CG movie incarnations, and voices, music, sound effects and even footage taken straight from the hit movie, The Incredibles keeps the super-fun alive long after the film's over.
