I bought this at the same time as Lego DC Super-Villains, as it was cheap to get them both together. And we started playing soon after we’d 100%ed that. Despite both being Lego superhero themed games, they’re actually pretty different.
Of course, this is based on the two The Incredibles films – although you play through the second film before the first – rather than DC properties, but the hub world in particular is quite different. There’s a whole city, split into districts. One of them will be the scene for a crimewave, and you pop over and deal with the crimes: bank robberies, bombs to defuse, goons to beat up, and so on. Once you’ve cleaned up, another area gets hit but also you unlock a special thing to build and the locations of all the collectables in that region are unveiled.
The story mode is as good as ever, but doesn’t really differ from other Lego games. Unlike other recent Lego games there’s quite a low number of unlockable characters, as although there seems to be hundreds, most are just reskins of the main Incredibles family and associates. You can unlock guest characters from other Pixar films though, like Dory, Lightning McQueen and the kid from Up.
So it’s the same, only different. And very short – we 100%ed it in less time than it took to do just story mode in DC Super-Villains – but that’s OK as we enjoyed it anyway.
