The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this is an enjoyable game for all ages. Gameplay is long-lasting and not repetitive. Violence is kept to a minimum, as fighting an enemy is presented as freeing the creature from an evil influence rather than injuring it. Commercialism is the major concern, as the game is based on a toy-set.

What's it about?
BIONICLE is a fantasy adventure game based on the popular Lego toys of the same name. The object of the game is to save your island from an evil force using a group of heroes known as the Toa, who all represent different elemental forces and have corresponding powers. In order to save the island the player must complete a series of quests, all presented in stunning visual graphics, and defeat the enemy.
The game offers a wide variety of gameplay; from exploring different regions on foot, by swimming, by snowboarding, by surfing on lava, to soaring through the trees by jumping and using springboards.
Is it any good?
Multiple hours of gameplay are available without the action becoming repetitive. Violence is mostly nongraphic and is kept to a minimum as fighting an enemy is presented as freeing the creature from an evil influence rather than injuring it.
Commercialism is a concern, as the primary purpose of this game seems to be to increase awareness of, and interest in, the toys. That said, the commercial aspect in fact is treated well, and does not tend to be overtly presented.
