  1. This game is definitely aimed at the young and inexperienced player. Serious gamers need not apply.
  2. 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.
  3. It is fun for all ages, but isn’t very challenging for older gamers.
  4. Not even the allure of shiny robots with guns for arms can liven up this mind-numbingly simplistic and repetitive over-the-shoulder shooter.
  5. Bionicle Heroes looks good, and has a decent license backing it, but completely fails to capture the magic that made the LEGO Star Wars games a hit. What you get instead is an average, boring shooter that’s only worth playing if you have a deep love for the source material.
  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. I cannot recommend this game for adults, kids, or even a rental, unless you plan to find humour in a so bad it's good kind of way.

    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]

    If you really love LEGOs, buy a pack from a local store instead--it's much more entertaining. [Feb. 2007, p.88]

    Ideal for youngsters old enough to shoot things but too young for blood and guts. Fun, but flawed. [Christmas 2006, p.96]
  11. God help the kid that gets this as a present when they should have gotten one of the LEGO Star Wars games instead. Seriously, just avoid this game and pick up one of TT's better efforts.
  12. Bionicle Heroes does little to make a name for itself, with repetitive and overly simplistic gameplay, and some rather uninspiring visuals.
  13. Clunky controls and nonexistent difficulty, however, reduce the game into bargain bin status.

    By Lego game standards, this game is really fun with great visuals and cool power-ups. By normal game standards, it is repetitive andBy Lego game standards, this game is really fun with great visuals and cool power-ups. By normal game standards, it is repetitive and derivative and there is little to no enemy variety. But since I loved this game as a kid I will give it a good score for nostalgia. 8/10 (great) for nostalgia. Full Review »

    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: quirkyI 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. Full Review »
