From the makers of one of the undoubted ‘Games of 2006’ LEGO Star Wars II, comes a new LEGO adventure in the form of Bionicle Heroes, to keep LEGO fans and ‘boys of all ages’ happy.
In the game, you get to take control of a young hero stepping out of the real world and into the strange and dangerous universe of Bionicle. Only by mastering the powers and special abilities of the greatest Bionicle heroes will he be able to overcome the many challenges ahead.
In the game, you to travel to the amazing island of Voya Nui, a world filled with Bionicle heroes and villains, past and present. There, you take control of the heroic Toa Inika and battle the villainous Piraka in a fight for the future of the island.
Along the way on your epic quest, you get to explore jungles, volcanoes and mountains on this mysterious island. In order to survive, you have to learn to master the unique weapons and abilities of the Toa to battle through the ultimate Bionicle adventure and emerge victorious.
Visually, Bionicle Heroes is a good looking game. The graphics are well detailed and animate fluidly.
I didn't notice any clipping or slowdown except during explosions and other heavy usage of particle effects, but nothing that interfered with the actual gameplay. The robots display shiny, reflective armor, but they take on no damage.
Bionicle is definitely a family-oriented game. There is no blood and not even a robot gets killed. This game is definitely aimed at the young and inexperienced player. Serious gamers need not apply
