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.

Bionicle Heroes is without a doubt aimed at kids and is as E10+ as a shooter can get, but even a child will quickly grow bored by the lack of challenge, innovation, and story development in this game. The blatant similarities to the Lego Star Wars series are also troubling because they often leave you with the feeling that you're playing a retextured version of those games. Although the game does have bursts of inspiration in the charm of the cutscenes, these are spread entirely too thin and don't come close to carrying the package or making up for the disappointing gameplay. Those who enjoy the Bionicle storyline will most likely have an easier time looking past this game's flaws, but if you're looking for a fun and engaging game, definitely pass on this one.

This is not a good game, there are to many disappointing features to warrant purchase and I swear I got a headache at one point from the loud graphics (I had to turn down the brightness on my TV). You may have a big-time Bionicle fan in your house, but you won't be doing them any favors by getting them this title.

Ce n’est pas parce que Bionicle Heroes reprend les mêmes ingrédients que le surprenant LEGO Star Wars II : La Trilogie Originale que le jeu nous plaira à coup sûr. Traveller’s Tales s’est planté en optant pour une caméra à l’épaule foireuse, une visée automatique brouillonne, des phases de jeu répétitives et une facilité omniprésente. Bref, Bionicle Heroes aura bien du mal à trouver sa place au pied du sapin à Noël.

Overall, I can't say Bionicle Heroes is the biggest disappointment of the year because I was not expecting much. I think it's safe to say that the game proved to be more disastrous than even I anticipated. It may be mildly entertaining for children, only due to its simplicity, but this is a far cry from the types of games that kids played when I was younger. The challenges of Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog have been replaced with what amounts to automatic success for today's generation of gamers. It's a pity that the developers put such little faith into their customer's abilities, as this game only enables a generation to grow incompetent.
