  1. It is fun for all ages, but isn’t very challenging for older gamers.
  2. A busy and rather decent shooter targeted towards young 'uns, but there's very little on offer here for veteran gamers. [Christmas 2006, p.85]
  3. Ideal for youngsters old enough to shoot things but too young for blood and guts. Fun, but flawed. [Christmas 2006, p.96]
  4. Clunky controls and nonexistent difficulty, however, reduce the game into bargain bin status.
  5. Bionicle Heroes does little to make a name for itself, with repetitive and overly simplistic gameplay, and some rather uninspiring visuals.
  6. The sluggish controls and slow-as-molasses gameplay act as a virus that kills off any excitement this game could have had. Missions are boring and extremely repetitive.
  7. 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.

    This is a pretty good game overall, but then again, that might just be my nostalgia and my extreme love/obsession for Bionicle speaking. I would actually give it an 8.5/10, but I rounded up. Expand

    I admit it. I had a lot of fun playing this game when I was a kid. But now, I played the game again and it is a mixed bag for me. PROS: quirky characters, decent graphics (for a lego game), cool and fun to look at backgrounds and scenery, and the fact that you can never die because you get all your lives back if all your characters die (probably because it is made for kids). CONS: Repetitive level design, lack of enemy variety, it is too easy, and it gets boring after 20 minutes. CONSENSUS: This game is painfully average and repetitive but if you like Bionicles you will enjoy this game. RATING: (for non bionicle fans) 4/10 (for bionicle fans) 6/10. Expand
