  1. Unlike mindless shooters, Bionicle's well-developed characters and plot give it a real sense of adventure. It's able to leave the player with the feeling of visiting a strange and mystical place while still offering fun and varied gameplay.

    Story aside, there's some pretty decent action here. Gameplay includes straight-up action, light puzzle solving, and fast-paced racing. The variety keeps things fresh and ensures you won't become bored.
  3. If you are a PC gamer looking for a decent third person platform title, do yourself a favor, do not pick this up and grab a console.
  4. Definitely not a purchase for mature PC gamers, but for those wanting a gaming introductory lesson for their young children, this might just be for you. Just plan on lots of patience, as this is certainly targeted toward the LEGO fans of the world.
  5. Bionicle's horrible controls and confusing camera angles (which shift at inopportune times) make it a terribly frustrating experience. [Feb 2004, p.77]
  6. All the wonder of the Bionicle universe has been bled dry by a vapid design, an atrocious camera system, and one noteworthy bug.
  7. 35
    The adventure is also far too short and easy -- you can complete the entire game (100%) in less than two hours -- even while struggling with some counterintuitive (because of control) levels.
