This Lego take on the hit movies makes the game world feel alive and is fun to play through by yourself or with a friend. It's flat-out fun, especially when you're playing with someone else in co-op (cooperative mode) or with fans of the films. (On that note, there are some serious spoilers for Incredibles 2 here, so wait to play until after you see the movie.) Covering both Incredibles movies, this game offers big set pieces and tons of challenges, along with better graphics (including fancy lighting effects. compared to previous titles) and new characters to unlock (more than 100, plus a customizer to make your own). A new, impressive feature is the expansive hub world, which is loaded with "Crime Waves" to play; these missions have a set of separate but specific objectives, with tougher boss characters to fight, collectibles to find, and special Pixar-themed Easter eggs, too. And there are free-play areas, too, when you've finished everything else.

It's really fun to play with each Parr family member's ability to solve a mission, whether that's strength, speed, elasticity, or defensive fields. Thankfully, the controls are fast and responsive, and the funny dialogue that's a trademark of the Lego series is excellently handled. If there's an issue (and a minor one at that), it's that this game is similar to the ones that came before it. But those who love The Incredibles movies won't find a better tie-in game. And parents who want to share screen time with their kids will get a kick out of playing a family-friendly co-op Lego game like this.
