Rise Of The Underminer Reviewed
10:06 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

IGN has posted a review of The Incredibles: Rise Of The Underminer, THQ's sequel to the original Incredibles movie and game. Taking place directly after the ending of the movie, RotU follows Mr. Incredible and his ally Frozone as they attempt to prevent the Underminer and his legion of robot minions from polluting the major cities of the world. RotU only received a passable 6 out of 10 from IGN.

As for puzzles and obstacles, there's a decent mix as long as you keep in mind that Rise of the Underminer is a kid's game. Most of them only require you to stand on a specific part of the floor and press one or two buttons. Others will have you take control of Frozone and create ice bridges or freeze pillars so Mr. Incredible can smash them. And then there are the few times when a puzzle requires you to switch between the two heroes to unlock and destroy barriers. These puzzles offer some pretty cool animations when executed, but they're not very engaging. Again, like the action, it's something that younger gamers will enjoy. Older gamers, however, not so much.
For the entire review and a few screenshots check out the IGN site listed below.
