Top customer reviews
The game is basically a tie-in to the Mask of Light movie, summarizing the story of the first three years (Rahi, Bohrok, Bohrok-Kal, and Rahkshi), but it really doesn't follow the canon story at all. But the graphics, though dated, capture the feeling I got from the first story arc perfectly. The Toa Nuva look the best here than anywhere else.
The game is divided into 8 levels.
Level 1: Tahu Mata - Toa of Fire
Fight through Ta-Wahi, the fire region around Mount Ihu, battling Rahi beasts like Nui-Jaga, Nui-Rama, and then Bohrok at the end. You find a Krana, a Bohrok's brain, and meet up with Kopaka, the Toa of Ice.
Level 2: Kopaka Mata - Toa of ice
This level is basically just a race. You play as kopaka and try to meet up with a poorly portrayed Turaga Nuju. He tells you to follow a Bohrok before it destroys Ko-Koro, the Ice village.
There were originally going to be levels of Gali, pohatu, Onua, and Lewa Mata, but they were cut from the game due to time constraints. A Kopaka Nuva level was also planned.
In the backstory, the other Toa also gathered a few Krana, only six, and are transformed into Toa Nuva by... energy from the Krana?! This part doesn't follow the story at all.
Level 3: Gali Nuva - Toa of Water
Play as Gali, the only Female Toa (In my opinion portrayed better here than in the movie), and battle through infected Rahi beasts and go on a series of short missions for Turaga Nokama, who looks like a shriveled up fish that's been out in the sun for a month. At the end, you encounter the Bohrok-Kal and defeat them all, even though all six Toa could barely beat them in the canon story.
Level 4: Pohatu Nuva - Toa of Stone
Gali goes to po-Wahi, the desert region, and tells Pohatu the island is in danger. Pohatu goes and rescues a Matoran villager, but the building they're standing on, which has been there for 1000 years... collapses for no reason? They get in a mine cart and drive through the mines of Onu-Koro, the underground village of Earth to meet up with Onua.
Level 5: Onua Nuva - Toa of Earth
Onua battles rahi to get through onu-Wahi and battles Lehrakh, a Rahkshi of poison, one of Makuta's "sons." He goes and informs Lewa of the danger the Rahkshi pose.
Level 6: Lewa Nuva - Toa of Air
Lewa's voice is probably more unfitting than making Makuta sound like Barbie. His voice DOES NOT FIT at all, though it might, just might be better than the Lucky Charms Leprechaun voice he has in the movie. I'm not sure which is worse. He swings across vines through le-Wahi, the jungle region.
Level 7: Tahu Nuva - Toa of Fi... oh right. We played as him already.
This is another surfing/racing level. A Rahkshi has stolen the Mask of Light, the Toa's only hope of defeating Makuta. Tahu goes after him. At the end of the level, a certain character who I'm not naming (Though you should know. It's been 9 years) becomes the Toa of Light.
Level 8: Takanuva - Toa of light
Takanuva somehow teleports to Makuta's lair. Makuta, probably better portrayed in the cutscene than in the movies, or at least Mask of Light, battles Takanuva. The end of the game is loosely based on the end of Mask of Light. It's probably as close to the story as the game gets. Even though it's still miles away from what it's supposed to be. I should also note that Makuta just gives up. It's disgraceful if you know Makuta's character. This isn't Hero Factory. Bionicle villains don't just give up like that.
The game sounds repetitive, but it's not. As long as you know this isn't the real story, you'll be fine as long as you don't let it bother you too much. Pretty good game, but hard as hell.
BIONICLE fans might find something lacking about it, and I'll tell you: Not enough levels. The only Original Toa you can play are Tahu and Kopaka, and then you play all the Toa Nuva in turn EXCEPT Kopaka Nuva. Oh well.
Still, don't be put off by video game review websites or some lousy customer reviews. It IS a fun game, has some challenging parts, and has good graphics(not amazing, but still good). The stupid "bad camera angles" are junk talk, because you can control the angle(except for a few parts, but what it's doing is showing you the way)and it looks fine to me.
It's a great game, and pretty well designed for a Kid's game.
