Game industry News (GiN)
All in all this is a light-hearted and enjoyable game. I think the racing games that were present in the original Lego Island could have been included in the sequel, for an extra element of playability. A couple of different modes of transport for Pepper wouldn't go amiss either, as I didn't find the collection of the trading cards much of a reward. I really was waiting for a little race against Brickster to show him what I'm made of. Alas it wasn't to be, but Lego Island2 still gets a cool 4 GiN gems. Let's hope the next incarnation combines the best elements of both games.

Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Despite its limitations, Lego Island 2 is truly much better than the original. In a way, this title feels like getting a whole gamepack in one fell swoop, with so many different kinds of mini-games to play. To be sure, there is a lot here that is not perfect, but the combination of challenges ends up creating a refreshingly different play experience. While there is no doubt that there is little here to appeal to the hardcore gamer, and some will wish for more sophistication in more than one spot, for the more casual audience of all ages there is a lot present to entertain you. Unlike the sterile island environments found in titles like MYST, in Lego Island 2 everywhere you go is teeming with activity and possibilities for interaction. Lego Software is to be commended for providing a unified and coherent theme of play that both challenges and pleases at least the mass market audience.

Meristation
El juego presenta grandes altibajos en todos sus aspectos, creando una sensación de mediocridad que incita sacar el CD del lector y volverlo a empaquetar. Para regalárselo a ese sobrino tan impertinente que nos llena el teclado de mermelada cada vez que viene a casa.
