Parents need to know that “Lego The Incredibles” is based on the two Disney/Pixar animated movies — “The Incredibles” and “The Incredibles 2.” In the game, you play as the Parr family, who must accomplish missions based on sequences from the feature films. Played mostly from a top-down view, you’ll control Lego versions of this superhero family, engaging in combat, solving puzzles, unlocking new characters, and unraveling the story. There’s some animated violence, but there’s no blood or gore, and the cartoonish breaking of enemies into Lego pieces limits the impact of battle. There’s also some crude humor, including burping and vomiting in some scenes. Finally, there’s some downloadable content (DLC) available for players that pre-ordered the game, with additional content promised to be released in the future.
