Excerpt: Can the combination of Traveller’s Tales and Lego provide another hit? Building (pun intended) on the success of the Lego Star Wars brand, here is a similar explore and collect game set in Lego’s own sci-fi universe.
Excerpt: Bionicle Heroes does a great job of portraying one of the many Nui lands this series of toys/books/movies has portrayed. This game, taking place in Voya Nui, shows off the lava flows, ice fields, jungles, rivers and mountains found in all Bionicle islands.
Excerpt: Some games are clearly designed for a certain audience. While it's undoubtedly hard for game developers to create games that gain critical praise and massive sales, it's worth sparing a thought for the guys that slave away on titles aimed squarely at kids.
Conclusion: One of the positive things about this game is the graphics. Visually speaking, Bionicle Heroes is well done. TT Games has translated the look and feel of the Bionicle models into a whimsical and yet very convincing world.
Summary: Take control of a young hero as he steps 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.
Excerpt: Duplicating the success of one surprise hit can be a terrifying prospect for a new developer. The temptation, of course, is just to do the same thing again, and make sure that you pump out that sequel as fast as possible to ride the wave of hype built up behind the first game.
