The Incredibles: When Danger Calls

video game

Since its founding in 1923, The Walt Disney Company has become the largest media conglomerate in the world. The company gave birth to countless films, musicals, television shows, and theme parks. Many of Disney’s characters, introduced through animation or film, have found new life in tie-in video games that give fans the opportunity to interact with beloved worlds and story lines. THQ and Disney Interactive Studios released "The Incredibles" for Game Boy Advance, Mac, PC, GameCube, PlayStation 2, and Xbox in 2004. Based off the Pixar movie of the same name, gamers play as characters from the film and must progress through different levels that correspond to the plot of the movie. Some of the actors from the movie, including Craig T. Nelson and Samuel L. Jackson, returned to provide their voice talents for the video game. Released in October 2004, "The Incredibles" movie became a critical and commercial success. It broke many box office records and won numerous awards. Released in tandem with the movie, "The Incredibles" game also received positive reviews. Juan Castro of IGN wrote, "the game mirrors the look and feel of the movie, with faithful recreations of characters, and environments." He also praised the graphics, as well as the voiceovers. Soon after the movie and video game proved a success, THQ released a package of Incredibles-related mini-games and adventures. Entitled "The Incredibles: When Danger Calls," this action-adventure game expanded "The Incredibles" universe and allowed gamers to play as different characters from the movie. Gamers and critics found that the game was more of a children’s game than the previous installment, and did not enjoy it as much as they did the first one. Like many other video games released for promotional purposes, "The Incredibles" succeeded in giving players the opportunity to expand their movie experience, and in providing merchandise for film producers. Along with the video games, Pixar and Disney released "The Incredibles" toys, clothes, books, and stuffed animals. THQ also released a sequel to the original video game entitled "The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer," and Pixar has announced a sequel to the original movie.
