I was pleasantly surprised bu this title, after reading mostly negative reviews. If you liked the LEGO Star Wars games, chances are you will like this.
Gameplay is very similar (collecting LEGO parts, mostly linear gameplay, etc.) but set in the Bionicle world. While it does get repetitive constantly battling swarms of bad guys, the different powers of the heroes make it fun destroying them in different ways. You can choose to fight them with standard weaponry or use bombs, etc. Boss battles mark the end of most levels, but are not very difficult. While I am not familiar with the Bionicle universe, the cut scenes were comical, even if a bit corny, similar to the LEGO Star Wars games.
The graphics were pretty good on HDTV, and there was a semi-cool blurring effect you could turn on.
Music was standard, but not annoying (sounded very similar to the Back to the Future theme). Overall an entertaining experience.
