  • Summary: Bionicle puts the elemental powers of the Toa at your fingertips to battle the forces of evil. Summon blasts of fire, ice, water, stone, earth, and air in six island environments. With Toa energy, you can snowboard down Mount Ihu, surf through lava rapids, and race through Pohatu's desert. Your path takes you through jungles, mountains, and lakes, and ends in Makuta's lair. It's up to you to defeat the evil spirit and stop his Bohrok from devouring all of the island's resources. Expand

  1. Gamers new to Bionicle may find the story uninteresting or burdensome and the gameplay short lived. With a deluge of other platformer titles available, Bionicle doesn’t stand out as anything special and will at most be a rental for the majority of gamers.
  2. The solid control and pretty grapihcs don't make up for the relatively bland stages and extremely short length. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.100]
  3. No amount of staring at Bionicle will allay the feeling that you accidentally booted up a PSOne game. [Jan 2004, p.63]
  4. All the wonder of the Bionicle universe has been bled dry by a vapid design and an atrocious camera system.

    You're thrown from one seemingly random instance to another strung along by a thin storyline. This is simply a case of trying to stuff too many gameplay ideas into a game and dumbing it down way to much for a kid's audience.

    It is NOT the best game, but I like the fact that it's Bionicle.

    This is the worst platformer I have ever played so far in this Xbox career. It is incredibly short, the graphics are N64 quality, the voice-acting is bad, the controls are simplistic as hell, the plot could have been good but instead it was just a complete mess with plot holes, and the gameplay is just bland, boring, and uninspired.
    I will give this game a 2 out of 10 because the soundtrack in this game is the only good part about this entire game. Overall, even if you're a Bionicle fan, avoid this game at all costs!

    This game is so stupid.
