The third option is “The Incredibles,” a video game for the computer and the consoles. Kids call on the Incredibles’ super strength, wicked speed, invisibility, and elasticity to work through the movie plot in 18 levels.

The controls for the PC version are hard to use, making the console versions the better option.
