    The IR control is simply no substitute for a second analog stick – at least not in the way it was implemented here.
  2. The game also featured mind-numbingly simplistic and repetitive gameplay, as well as a dearth of worthwhile added content. Luckily, the Wii version has come along to deliver the coup de grace, effectively retaining all of the games vices while delivering a control scheme that would be obnoxious even if the camera controls weren't completely busted.
  3. As a huge fan of the Lego Star Wars series, I was really disappointed with this game. Heroes basically just copied and pasted the Lego Star Wars formula, but took out the likeable characters and tacked on sluggish Wii controls.
  4. With energy hearts constantly appearing, respawning masks, and enemies that kindly back off, if you die in Bionicle Heroes you may want to strongly consider hanging up your gaming gloves.
  5. But for those hoping for a solid third-person action game on Wii or an experience that goes beyond that of the GameCube game, Bionicle Heroes doesn't fit the bill. [June 2007, p.101]
  6. It's immensely satisfying gunning down hordes of enemies. [June 2007, p.86]
  7. A must for Bionicle fans and decenet, trashy fun for everyone else. But the controls are poor. [May 2007, p.52]

    Awful graphics, close to no story line. They realy shouldn't make games about lego... Only plus is reward system, get enough Lego blocks Awful graphics, close to no story line. They realy shouldn't make games about lego... Only plus is reward system, get enough Lego blocks and get a new char (which doesn't really add anything to the game) Somewhat fun for die hard fans, for all the rest: don't buy it. Full Review »
