Its very different to the likes of LEGO Racers or LEGO Batman and is instead a sort of real-time strategy game which doesnt insult the intelligence of junior fans and instead makes for an intriguing time.
Lego Rock Raiders Series Of StoryThe idea here is that you are in charge of a group of underground LEGO adventurers and must guide them through a series of story-based missions.These include things like finding stranded members of the gang, finding bases lost in rockfalls and building up your own so that you develop new vehicles.There are RPG elements here in the way that you can advance your characters by learning new abilities as becoming a demolitions expert or the ability to pilot a new vehicle, while there are also numerous impressive cutscenes to move the story along.
Rock Raiders is far from perfect as a game, but it is certainly bold enough to warrant closer inspection.
It lacks the overt humor and sheer bravado of other titles using the license, and has a much darker feel to it, which might put off younger fans, but if youre more interested in the gameplay itself, then theres much to enjoy here.
The missions are varied and rarely less than compelling, with a good level of challenge to keep you playing.
The visuals are a bit on the dark side, but thats only to be expected given the games nature, although the cutscenes are more impressive.
However they rarely went to space, and that, of course had to be remedied Thus, within LEGO Rock Raiders the action takes place in this space opera setting, within a universe where black hole exploration and different worlds and planets will be your playing ground.
Overall, the game is less funny or humorous than most of the other sim games, so it kind of missed the mark with children, but some of us might still enjoy it, for the exploration bits.
Anyway, LEGO and space exploration not that common, so give it a try, it certainly has enough variety as well as classic LEGO elements to not be a completely different game, but it is neither a game youve already played a thousand times before.
