Game Over Online (Nov 23, 2004)
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. 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. By not merely not sucking, but actually being pretty cool, it actually reversed the suck effect caused by several other games, such as Elf on the GBA.

Game Chronicles (Dec 04, 2004)
Publisher THQ and developer Heavy Iron Studios continue their successful run of movie-based offerings and a love affair with Pixar studios. Is that a bad thing? Well, one man’s monopoly is another man’s...something. Just read.

Die Unglaublichen ist eine saubere Lizenzumsetzung – aber leider nicht mehr! Während Grafik und Akustik dem Film alle Ehre machen, bleibt das Gameplay herkömmlich und belanglos. Und trotzdem kann man den reaktivierten Superhelden einen gewissen Spielspaß nicht absprechen. Dieser würde sogar noch in höhere Bereiche abdriften, wenn die Kamera und vor allem die Steuerung optimiert worden wären. Doch angesichts zahlreicher Lizenzgurken, die im Lauf der letzten Monate veröffentlicht wurden, ist Die Unglaublichen als durchaus gelungen zu bezeichnen und dürfte allen Fans des Filmes kurzweilige Unterhaltung bieten. Wer allerdings einen anspruchsvolleren Plattformer zum Zeitvertreib möchte, sollte sich evtl. lieber Rayman 3 oder Jak 3 anschauen.

Next Level Gaming (Dec 12, 2004)
The Incredibles is THQ’s latest game based on a Pixar movie. THQ has brought us such great as The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, which is actually a very good little platform game based on the movie. Last year they did Finding Nemo, and the game was a success. THQ has been slapping out platforms left and right. The Incredibles is still raking in some big cash (200 million + to date) at the Box Office even as I write this review. Kids and their parents are still flocking to movie theatres to see it. Now my six year old daughter loves these kinds of films. She loved Finding Nemo and she loves Spongebob Squarepants to death (just like her Daddy).

If you're reading this review, chances are you were one of the millions of moviegoers who went to see The Incredibles last weekend. If you weren't one of the 10+ million moviegoers, you haven't seen the year's best animated film. Year's best – screw that. It's the best animated film I've seen this decade.

GameSpy (Nov 08, 2004)
Even with these flaws, The Incredibles is still an entertaining diversion. It's certainly a lot better than most movie-based video games have proven to be. And while the game never quite reaches "Incredible" levels, it's still a good enough game to warrant checking out if you enjoyed the movie. Just don't expect to have to spend much time with it.

IGN (Nov 04, 2004)
The Incredibles, the latest Pixar flick to make the jump from theater screen to TV screen, has the makings of a solid action game. It features a nuclear family brimming with fantastic super powers, all sorts of maniacal contraptions and Pixar's unique brand of stylistic humor.

Softpedia (Feb 22, 2006)
The game does not bring anything new to the stale arcade genre, and the little fun it provides is very soon obscured by the repetitive gameplay, nasty control and camera glitches. Kids who went nuts for the film (seemingly the game's target audience) will most likely love it despite these shortcomings, but even they might toss it away once boredom sets in... for it definitely will.

GameSpot (Nov 03, 2004)
For all the critical acclaim Pixar's many computer-animated films have received over the years, there has yet to be a great game based on any of them. Rather, nearly every game to bear the license of a Pixar film has been a fairly run-of-the-mill and problematic affair, capturing little if any of the charm and whimsy that makes the studio's characters and stories so captivating. The Incredibles is the studio's latest film effort, and even though the film itself has not yet reached theaters, the game version of the movie has. Unfortunately, the game doesn't buck the trend of mediocrity, offering a fairly unremarkable experience that puts you through the motions of the film's plot without capturing any of its essence.

All told, The Incredibles is a decent action affair, one which will likely be enjoyable for younger gamers. As for the rest of us, I feel there’s a multitude of definitive action titles offering a greater entertaining value and longevity worth diving into.

Video Game Talk (Dec 19, 2004)
If this game didn't have monotonous clunky gameplay, repetitive sound bytes, cookie cutter enemies and frustrating pacing then it would actually be great. Unfortunately that's not the case and all that is negative about this game is transparent after the first couple of stages. Fans of the movie will want to give this one a rent but if you haven't seen the film yet you will have more enjoyment with the theatrical presentation of the story than what is served up here.

Jeuxvideo.com (Nov 12, 2004)
Petit jeu d'action sans grande envergure, Les Indestructibles parvient tout de même à nous distraire quelques instants. Cependant, on regrette vraiment que le film d'animation n'ait pas bénéficié d'une meilleure adaptation vidéoludique. En effet, le jeu n'est qu'un enchaînement de niveaux sans véritable lien entre eux. Le scénario est quasi-inexistant. Et le gameplay n'est pas assez riche et intéressant pour relever la sauce, si bien qu'on s'ennuie ferme. Non, décidément, on est encore en présence d'une licence cinématographique mal exploitée.

Game Revolution (Nov, 2004)
Everyone wants a sure thing, to get all of the reward without taking any of the risk. In the gaming world that means one of two things: a sequel or a movie license. Just look at a short list of this year’s crop of top games: Halo 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, The Sims 2, GTA: San Andreas, Doom 3, Metroid Prime 2. It’s not that these aren’t high-quality games; it’s just that original, creative, innovative titles are scarce. Few publishers are willing to risk millions in development costs just to make Katamari Damacy.

The chances are you've seen The Incredibles. Even if you haven't, the cloying hype surrounding the Pixar animation has been unavoidable this Christmas, so there's no point in telling you of a plot involving a superhero family and the regaining of its powers. You know this already. It's everywhere. Incredible.
