  1. Excellent for younger gamers, Bionicle Heroes is a well-designed and enjoyable shooter, although more experienced players might consider it lacking in challenges.
  2. 80
    This is a satisfying shooter experience that fans of the genre shouldn't ignore.
  3. Although it lacks online play, Bionicle Heroes is a surprisingly adept and enjoyable first-person shooter.
  4. A fun title that manages to overcome its shortcomings by simply being entertaining.
  5. A flawed first person shooter, marred by an incredibly frustrating control system, coupled with a dull combat experience.
  6. Even the target audience has games in the same genre that are more well defined. While these may entertain, after one or two levels you realize that there is nothing new coming.
  7. From gameplay to graphics to sound, there's a lot to enjoy with Bionicle Heroes - just don't expect to be blown away. If you're a fan of action games or giant robots, this game is sure to keep you satisfied.
  8. A surprisingly entertaining adventure with great controls. [Mar 2007, p.84]
  9. Those who are interested in multiplayer gaming might want to stick with Nintendo’s first-party offering, but those gamers who simply want a solid single-player experience are bound to have a ton of fun.
  10. Overall, accessible and straightforward and worth checking out if you’re a fan of either the genre or source material.
  11. It's pretty, and zippy, with lots of reasons to come back for more (e.g. secret areas opening up as you collect Bionicle masks). Fun, but easy. [Dec 2006, p.55]

    Third person (or is it first?) shooter set in a world populated by Lego Bionicle characters. Not too bad an engine, but also not the type of game too fit for a DS. Full Review »

    Yep I gotta give this one something before 6 and after4 (sorry Lego). The DS version of this game is not as good as the PC version.The PC version is more interactive. When I played the DS version and compared it to the PC version I was quite surprised. You don't really do anything on the DS. Full Review »
