    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.
  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. 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.
  4. No amount of staring at Bionicle will allay the feeling that you accidentally booted up a PSOne game. [Jan 2004, p.63]
  5. All the wonder of the Bionicle universe has been bled dry by a vapid design and an atrocious camera system.

    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!

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

    This game is so stupid.
