On Friday Gamespot posted a first look at the upcoming THQ tittle, The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer. A sequel to the first game and to the movie, Underminer follows the adventures of Mr. Incredible and his crime fighting partner Frozone. The two superheroes must battle legions of robots and other bad guys as they seek out the evil Underminer. Skillful use of both heroes' abilities will be a must if players are to help the duo succeed.

Part of the fun in the game is determining which hero is best for taking out a particular enemy. Mr. Incredible is all about pure, unbridled power, as he wades through enemies through sheer muscle alone. Frozone, on the other hand, is sleeker and faster thanks to his ice-based powers, and even though he probably can't bench as much as Mr. Incredible, he can still certainly pack a punch. In fact, against certain enemies or traps, Mr. Incredible will be basically ineffective, as instead he'll have to depend on Frozone's chilly powers to come to the rescue. A host of robotic bad guys, for example, makes for a ripe target for Frozone's freezing spray, which slows down the evil automatons long enough for Mr. Incredible to get in there to bust some bolts. Frozone is also deft at traversing otherwise impassable ravines by quickly whipping up an ice bridge, thus letting the duo cross gaps it might not otherwise be able to cross.
Rise of the Underminer is due out in November. IMG will keep you up to date as information becomes available. For the full sneak peek follow the link below.
