HONEY! WHHHHEEERRREEE IS MY SUPERSUIT!
LEGO Games Retrospective, looking back over the last decade and a bit of TT Games’ LEGO partnership, from the emergence of LEGO Star Wars through to the powerhouse that has been LEGO Dimensions and BEYOND.
EPISODE TWENTY-TWO – LEGO The Incredibles
Released in 2018 to coincide with the debut of the long-awaited sequel movie, LEGO The Incredibles was a surprisingly genius move by TT Games. With the exception of Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney’s entries in the LEGO-based games genre have been solely focused on IP’s that they purchased which already had existing relationships with LEGO; Star Wars, Marvel, Indiana Jones, all now under the House of Mouse brand, had long since debuted in the LEGO games market.
Incredibles on the other hand, gave Pixar it’s time to finally shine, and with all the ingredients for utilising the solid tried and tested mechanics of a TT Games LEGO entry, i.e. Superhero abilities to offer, this was surely a no-brainer. Even if after well over a decade of LEGO franchised games, I still didn’t see this coming.
Overall, LEGO The Incredibles is a surprisingly good instalment in the LEGO TT Games franchise, not because it’s content heavy, not because it mind-blowingly innovative like Dimensions, but because it doesn’t take itself seriously and is pure fun.
Much like the LEGO Ninjago Movie game, it’s short, but incredibly fun with just enough innovation to make it unique.
If you’ve not played this game, then I do recommend giving it a go. Just remember to watch the movies first if you don’t want to be spoiled.
