    I, a rabid BIONICLE fanboy, enjoyed this game. However, you, possibly not a rabid BIONICLE fanboy, may not. You see, it's certainly a competent game, even if you aren't into the toy line, it's just that knowing about the source material will make you appreciate the game on a whole other level.

However, you, possibly not a rabid BIONICLE fanboy, may not. You see, it's certainly a competent game, even if you aren't into the toy line, it's just that knowing about the source material will make you appreciate the game on a whole other level. So the game is an FPS starring your favourite plastic heroes getting kidnapped by plastic bad guys, and now you have to play as a nameless grey plastic good guy to save them. Once you've finished the opening cut scene, you'll be given access to the six elemental regions of the island, as the game lets you choose the order you want to play them, Mega Man style. At the end of each region you'll take part in a boss fight, bringing you one step closer to saving the others. One thing those familiar with the toys are sure to pick up on after a few levels, is the fan service. So many iconic things from BIONICLE's past make this game even more fun to play in my opinion, and it's completely non canon, so crazy and impossible things are allowed to happen without screwing with the official story. One criticism iv'e heard is that the graphics are bad, but the sharp edges and blocky character models suit BIONICLE well - it's how the toys look after all. so if you like BIONICLE, this might just be the game for you. If not, you might still enjoy it, and might find a new love - colourful lumps of plastic with ridiculous names. Expand

    This is even better than Metroid Prime Hunters! But no wifi is bad thing.

    I just thought I would mention that this is a first person shooter not a third like it says above. Also I am enjoying this one more than metroid hunters. Not very challenging but always something going on.

    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]

    This is a satisfying shooter experience that fans of the genre shouldn't ignore.
  3. 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.
