OK … when I was young, I went outside now and then and had a couple of other hobbies aside from ingesting multiple hours in front of the Intellivision system. Sure I played with Go Bots and Transformers, and yes I collected Star Wars and GI Joe figures … but one of my favorite activities on a rainy weekend was to dump out the umpteen thousand Legos that I had and just build whatever I could think up in my head.
One of the contenders for the title of hottest toy franchise this holiday season is Lego's Bionicle. The line of action figures is reminiscent of Micronauts and Transformers, so it's a certainty that the colorful little robots will end up under a lot of Christmas trees. Lego and Disney have even teamed up to offer Bionicle: Mask of Light, a straight-to-video animated film that garnered good reviews when it was released in September.
Lego's Bionicle franchise has been gaining momentum since its original debut early last year. So much so that it has spawned a hugely popular line of action figures, a straight-to-video animated Disney movie, and scads of random merchandise that is being bought up faster than Lego can manufacture them. So it was only a matter of time before a Bionicle videogame came down the pipes and it is only inevitable that the same hordes of bloodthirsty children who convinced their moms to spend hundreds of dollars on the Bionicle franchise to begin with will snatch this game up faster than you can say 20% APR. Unfortunately, we fear that even the most diehard fan of the source material will come away from this game severely disappointed, due in no small part to one of the worst camera systems to taint a simplistic 3D running and jumping game in recent memory.
There's turmoil in the island of Mata Nui. The dark spirit Makuta has infected the Rahi throughout the island -- using his control of the Bohrok, Bohrok-Kal, and Rahkshi to kidnap the Matoran villagers throughout the various Wahi. It's up to the guardians of each Wahi, the Toa warriors Tahi, Lewa, Kopaka, Gali, Pohatu, and Onua, to rescue the Matorans and find the Toa of Light, who is the only one strong enough to stop Makuta.
Quel bel objet marketing que voici. On trouve entre autres, en bonus, une bande annonce du film qui sort justement en dvd. A la fin de la notice, une pub pour les jouets Bionicle s’est subrepticement glissée, bref c’est la joie. Dommage que LEGO ait un peu oublié de proposer aux joueurs un titre avec une durée conséquente, un gameplay évolué et un tout petit peu de plaisir de jeu. Il y a des jours franchement où on ferait mieux de ressortir ses boîtes de Playmobil.
