Amazon.com Review

Games seem less susceptible to sophomore slump than movies or books.Quite often, when a game sequel comes out, it has everything you liked from thefirst game, and some more, too. Happily, LEGO Racers 2 is just such asequel.

When the game begins, you get a chance to build your own car, and even build andname your own racer from "people" pieces. Building cars is fun without evenplaying the game. If you're not happy with a car you've built, or just want tobuild more, the main menu lets you build all the cars you want with a hugevariety of virtual bricks.

Though at heart it's a racing game, LEGO Racers 2 offers more than justracing. A large solo adventure game lets you explore five worlds. The worldsrepresent some of LEGO's lines that you might already have bricks for, such asLife on Mars and Arctic Explorer. Each world has places to explore, withminigames to discover and power-ups that will improve your car's performance orsmash the other cars in a race. And, of course, there's plenty of racing, evenin the adventure game.

Once a world has been unlocked in the adventure game, you can access the worldfrom the race menu. From there, you can race for time, or against a friend intwo-player mode. Two-player mode also allows you and a friend to battle eachother, racing around the worlds looking for power-ups to smash your opponent'scar.

Adults and kids will have fun playing this game--together or separately, itdoesn't matter. LEGO Racers 2 is varied enough to appeal to differentkinds of game players, and fun enough to offer repeat-play value. This racinggame definitely belongs in the winner's circle.

5-0 out of 5 stars No hype, just real fun.
I will make this simple. This game is fun. Easy interface. Nice graphics. All ages may apply. Better than the first in many ways. Very detailed levels. Runs smooth on a moderate system. Don't miss this. It won't be available forever! It works on my xp system as well!

5-0 out of 5 stars LR2 is SO much better than the first one
Lego Racers 2 is such a great game! You travel to exciting new worlds: Sandy Bay, Dino Island, Mars, Artic and Xalax, the ultimate racing planet! You start out on Sandy Bay, a lively and cheerful island. You just wish you could leap right into that Lego world. Then, later, you travel to exciting Dino Island, where there are T-rexs, Stegosauruses, Triceratops and Pteronodons running around. Then you go to Mars, a bizzare world where you can talk to aliens. Next is the Artic, which is a world so cool, it's frozen(really!). And last,but not least,is Xalax, the most incredible world of all! The only weird thing is Rocket Racer is real easy to beat. But you feel so excited to see millons of Lego guys cheering and screaming in huge stands around the tracks. All these worlds have fitting music. It's just such an awesome game. When you play the game as long as I have, you start to get really good at it and you make up your own unique tricks.
There are also battles, which is a two player game. You and another player start on a world with no tracks. You can go wherever you want. The object of the battle is to knock all the bricks off the opponent's car. My brother always wins:(
There are two player races also.
Here are a few tips for beating the bosses: With Sam Sinister, just avoid oil and don't slow down. With the alien on Mars( I forget his name),take the shortcut in the waterfall. With the Berg, take the shortcut to the left RIGHT after the 2nd checkpoint. With Rocket Racer, avoid the walls and jumps and you'll win! Oh, one tip: LR2 might not work on some laptops: you need a numberpad to build cars and usually laptops don't have numberpads. :(
If you don't have LR2, you're downright nuts. GET LEGO RACERS 2!!!! *dramatic music* :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Lego Racers vs. Lego Racers 2
If you think after reading these reveiw that the sequel is terrible, let me tell you something.

When the first came out, it was very suitable for little kids. The tracks were playful, with walls so it was easy to stay on track, and power ups so that if it got to hard, you could cheat a little and get back to having fun.

So the lego people thought, "Hey, they like it. Let's make a sequel and REALLY impress them!" They thought that if the game was fun currently, it would be much more fun with better AI, cooler bosses, destructible cars, etc. They boldly sent the game into perfection. The result, though, because it lacks the cuteness of the original, is less apealing to kids.

There are no walls on the tracks, just a green direction arrow and some signs and checkpoints to mark out the track. This means you can get off track, so the racing seems more real. The cars can slide, shunt, skid, and spin, so they behave cooler. Little kids ran out and bought it, then began racing, realising, to their horror, that the racing was more complex and harder.

To the kids who liked racng games, though, the sequel was a major improvement. The random power up thing increased strategy and tactics.

In short, a great game if you like racing, but not as good as the first if you like the charming lego and cuteness.

5-0 out of 5 stars A major improvement
I undertsand why people would think Lego Racers 2 is not as good as the first. I have played both and I think the second is wa better. The first one was more playful and you listened to silly music while you steer your car aroun and listen to him make funny noises when you crash. you are either behind everyone or in front of everyone.

In the second, the game has a better racing system. Little kids who like the original will be disapointed that the racing is more difficult. To me, that makes it better, because you go to more exotic places, have the option to explore and chat with people, play hidden bonus games that come in two levels, and upgrade your car.

First off, the cars behave realistically, shunting each other and skidding as they turn corners. The opponents are not perfect drivers like in the first, but the tougher ones like cassiopia and Mr. Cunningham are. Then, there are the worl bosses. This includes Sam Sinister, a superfast driver who drops oilslicks, Reigel, the martian king who drives a giant mech robot that is indestructable, and The Berg,a crystallic ice monster who cheats and raises giant stalagmites behind him.

The adventure mode is more plotted out. You hop from world to world, paying for passage with golden briks, which you win by winning races or finding them hidden in the worlds. On each world, you race on five tracks, then take on the boss.

In the actual races, the system is much better. Your car gets damaged as it slams into things, and if you are not careful you could lose your car altogether and end up running! Luckily, uou have pit stops, which repair your car. You have a new and powerful variety of powerups, and each one is chosen at random, so you don't know which one you are getting! Each of these is an improvement on the ones from the original. This includes the lethal bloodhound homing missiles, the swift powerdisks, the powerful drill missiles, the slippery tornadoe, which doubles as a super sheild which protects your car, the awesome Storm Cloud, which has double use for if you are in the back or the lead, the invaluable invisiblity, which allows you to sneak past other cars like warp did in the original, or steal their powerups. And lets not forget the almighty Dissolve Car, the most powerful, with absolute domination of the track.

You also get speed ups. It's called a brick boost, earned as your car is damaged.

You can go to Arctic World, Dino Island, Mars, Xalax, or the lego town of sandy Bay.

The two player mode is much improved. You can do a leage race, like in the original curcuit race, or a standard race, or even a battle, where there are no tracks and the goal is to destroy the other guy's car! In one player, you can race on any track with up to seven other racers, or do a time race against yourself as a ghost car!

The builder has been improved, featuring racer parts from every new world, and a significantly upgraded car builder, allowing you to put up to 20!!! bricks on your car, as opposed to the meager builder in lego racers 1, which only allowed 10 bricks. In addition, your car drives better depending on weight and balance, so building a car can be educational!

In addition, any driver can go on any car, leading to almost limitless racer configurations. Also, you can practice a test run on any track, and the computer will determine which car is fastest by way of lap time! The bonus games are fun, and you can use them to win car upgrades for power, grip, and sheilds. They range from serving as taxi driver on sandy bay to collecting fuel cells for the astronauts or training on Xalax. Watch out for the guard cars!

The tracks are much more difficult, with no walls but checkpoints and a direction arrow to maintain a track. Race over a rickety bridge, run from a dinosaur in the jungle, explore a fiery volcano, but don't fall in! Race up a raging river,Dodge molten rocks as you cross the magma lake on Mars, and watch out for giant mech robots! Explore the icy caves up north, and a trapped ship in the ice, a cave inhabited by an icy monster, and go over loop de loops and ramps or power rings on Xalax as you race against ramas in a crazy stunt ralley!

Includes a new catch up mode, so there is always a challenge in every race depending on your skill!

In short, a major improvemt, with the only drawback being there are some steep requirements.

3-0 out of 5 stars VERY ADDICTIVE !
The boys loved the 1st version of this game and were totally thrilled to get this 2nd version. It's a load of fun for them but way too addictive. I also don't like it because it doesn't work perfectly, even after tinkering with the settings and computer drivers (just like the first one), and the boys don't learn anything from it. I guess I'm asking too much from it... ... Read more

Soccer Mania is highly entertaining game for soccer and Lego fans. Lego characters are really cool-looking and fun. Flaws for this soccer/Lego game are the controls(hard for first-timers). Otherwise really good game.

Amazon.com Review

Armed with pizzas, a skateboard, and a cool attitude, Pepper Roni--a freckle-faced pizza delivery boy--must save LEGO Island from a bad guy called the Brickster. Our hero dude travels from the depths of the sea to the outer limits of space (to Ogel Island... get it?) in pursuit of his man in this engrossing CD-ROM.

Boasting a whopping 18 subgames scattered throughout an intricate realm of islands, undersea worlds, deserts, and space, LEGO Island 2 focuses more on adventure and less on construction than previous LEGO titles. Players assume the identity of renaissance dude Pepper: pizza delivery, deep sea diving, astronaut training, and jousting are just a handful of the well-rendered experiences that await adventurers. The arrow keys get quite a workout as the game progresses, as they control everything from speedboats to parachutes to tyrannosaurs as Pepper changes modes of transport. Pepper churns through this world fending off the Brickster's henchmen robots, collecting pages of a "Constructopedia," and mastering various challenges in order to progress. Subgames must be completed in a sequence, and can then bere-accessed from Pepper's house. Players must work to build Pepper's pad, find the subgames, and chat with other characters for clues about how to move through this LEGO landscape. Players who want it all handed to them on one clickable screen will be frustrated: LEGO wants you to work for your pleasure, and get some calluses on those fingertips.

The charm of this impressive Windows-only program lies in the attention paid to detail, dialogue, and creative fun. The undersea game doesn't just have fish--it has narwhals and rowdy pirate skeletons growling curses. A knight straight out of Monty Python and the Holy Grail intones "Nay, nay, nay, one-who's-name-is-a-spice" when Pepper asks for help. Creators put a skateboard park on the island just for the heck of it. LEGO Island 2 provides both great game play and ample opportunity to freestyle. Also, the fluid detail of this program belies the chunky origins of LEGO life as we know it.

That detail comes with a price: it takes some time to load the subgames and scene changes even if your system meets the game's requirements. If LEGO Island 2 were one of Pepper's pizzas, it'd be an ultra mega deluxe, piled high with mummies, pterodactyls, and renegade robots. It'd also take a longer time to bake than your plain cheese, but the wait would be worth it. (Ages 6 to 99) --Anne Erickson ... Read more

OK Game, but...
This game has much better graphics and you have more freedom of movement than the original, but as for the gameplay, it is not something you want to play over and over again. While in the game, you have an objective at any given time, and whenever you talk to someone, they tell you your objective and point towards it. In other words, you really have to complete the objective unless you just want to go swimming or something. The freedoms and graphics may have not been that great in the original LEGO Island, but the gameplay is much better, and you can choose what missions you want to do when you feel like doing them. If you can, rent it or something and beat it in the 2 days it took me and then give it back, since I dont think it was worth the $... i paid for it.

Sweet game!!!!
This game is one of the best lego games yet! It's so fun even if you're not in a mission. The graphics rock although the loading is a bit slow but it's worth it! But when I bought my game, one level was messed up and I needed to buy another one. I would've gave it a 5 but it didn't work. Overall, it's still fun!

1-0 out of 5 stars To robelaine From South East Michigan
I purchased Lego Island 2 for my daughter for Christmas, my computer didn't support the game either, so I attempted to return the game to Toys R Us and of course that was pointless, however I did call Lego Media myself and they told me to send them the game back to them with a note stating that the game was not compatible with my computer and the receipt, and they would send me a refund. The consumer affairs information is on their website, check it out!! You don't have to be stuck with a product you can't use.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lego Island 2
This product has really cool graphics, however it takes way too long to load!!! For each individual area of the game you want to enter, you have to wait for the game to load. Infact, you even have to wait for it to load if you want to "Quit" the game too. It could be a really cool, but for my 6 year old daughter, it was just frustrating. I sent the game back to company for a refund and purchased the game for the Playstation instead.
I personally don't recommend this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Check the system requirements
I didn't check my video card memory and I have 6 MB and it needs 8 MB. My system is only 1 1/2 years old. I now have software that I can't use and I can't return (Toysrus policy). I don't want to upgrade, but my son wants to play the game. He keeps reading the box and telling me all the things he could do. ... Read more

In five action-packed extreme stunt games, kids play as Pepper Roni and race to each shooting location on a skateboard or in one of 14 LEGO vehicles--if they've passed all their driving tests. Kids can build all LEGO Island Xtreme Stunts vehicles from real LEGO pieces, and customize all the game's environments and characters.

In LEGO Island Xtreme Stunts kids perform all kinds of extreme stunts, like nailing skateboard grabs and grinds, racing through heavy traffic, catching big air on a dirt bike, making waves on a turbo jet ski, surfing the clouds on a skyboard, and flying a stunt plane roller coaster-style. All the while, kids must foil the Brickster's getaway, avoid crashes, and guide tourists to safety. Plus, there are all sorts of subquests and puzzles to solve, as well as arcade and multiplayer modes to unlock. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars really cool game, works great!
this game was awesome!! the different sub-games are exciting and exploring the island was cool. the only problem was that it's not possible to delete games that are maessed up. otherwise, this game rocks!

1-0 out of 5 stars Lego Extreme Stunts
We were very displeased with this product! We could not get it to run. We contacted the Lego Company about the problem with no response. My son loves Legos and enjoys his Lego Racers 2 game. We were very disappointed that the Extreme Stunts would not work.

3-0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME...NEEDS MORE LEVELS!
This game excels in graphics, but it lacks in the number of levels it offers. The main point of the game is to go from film shoot to film shoot to build an action stunt movie and you, Pepper, are the main stunt man! This game allows you to fly, drive, and jet-ski, which is great but it just isn't long enough to suit a big gamer like myself. I am glad I spent money on it, because it is very enjoyable and addictive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super Fun Game!!!
It's so much fun!
You play as Peper (a lego guy) and you go through
the game with a choice of walking around lego island talking
to differnt pepole, or making scenes in a movie (that Peper stars in) by completing levels that he must drive cars,boats,and a plane! But the best thing is he can skatebaord
whenever he wants! And he can do tricks with it!
He can also through pizas in pepoles face!
If you like fun and a chalenge this game is for you!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the most innovating games yet
I totally disagree to tanis1111's review of this excellent title.

Keeping in mind that I played literally hundreds of games so far, (some good, some bad), I've become quite spoilt with games; so far, out of 50 games I play, I usually only like one or two to the extent of me actually playing on and on to complete them. Usually, I get fed up by the annoying gameplay, or the repetitiveness of the game in general.

Having played several other LEGO games as well, I found that LEGO Island Xtreme Stunts successfully combines a lot of different genres, to bring the LEGO world to life. I found this title quite refreshing; not only can the character walk and swim around this unique island; he can also use his skateboard, or drive/fly/sail using vehicles found on the island. Additionally, the stunts really do combine a lot of genres: race and trash the opponent on land, sea or even in the air! Solve interesting logic puzzles or just use your skateboard to go about the island, performing neat tricks as you go.
Whereas I found other PC game titles like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, The Need for Speed and Crazy Taxi a bit boring and repetitive, LEGO Island Xtreme Stunts manages to combine all these games, and successfully place it in a world based on the LEGO universe, balancing the game so it never becomes boring.

I caught myself playing this game for hours. IMO, the bottom line for this game is the fact that it's a great deal, figuring the graphics are OK, the sound rocks ('radio'-music along the lines of GTA3 is present), and the gameplay never gets old. I'd recommend this game to anyone, seeing this package offers a great mixture of a lot of games, yet being very well priced. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great great great
I got this game a loooong time ago in Christmas 2000 so I dunno why I'm writing a review of it 3 years later, but...it's a great game,with tons of awesome stuff, like high-tech vehicles and buildings, monsters made of ice, lava, and rock, laser guns and sonic blasters to kill the monsters, teleportation, and other cool stuff. I've completed every single level except for the last one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lego Rock Raiders: A thinking game disguised as fun
The Lego Rock Raiders are member of the LMS explorer star ship. They need to beam themselves and mining equipment down to a planet to collect energy crystals for their damaged ship. This is made clear in the introductory video.

The game offers training missions and actual missions. In the training missions, the player is trained for the basic activities.
Much of this game is making tradeoffs with time and resources. For example, you need a fixed number of engergy crystals to complete a level. You can use some of them to obtain drilling vehicles, or special buildings to supply air and food, or help locate crystalls. Rock Raider can hold a fixed number of tools. You can have some of them carry weapons to defend you mining base, but then they can't hold as many tools.

This is an interesting game that gets increasingly challenging and makes you think at times.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest LEGO games!
LEG0 Rock Raiders is a cool game. Here is what it is like:

LEGO + mining in caves + Pikmin + Your Computer = LEGO Rock Raiders!

It is fairly easy, and you can get different views, and there IS a first person view by clicking on the button to the right. Keep clicking on things and it wil be easy to play. Sadly, the second or third level is very hard and until this day, I have never completed it. There are too many levels, and if you happen to manage through them, you must've counted 5 months. There should be a money prize for completing this difficult task of completing the entire game! Anyway, just point and click on your Rock Raider to do a certain command, and away he goes! Sometimes, they are busy doing something else, so just wait until he is done. There are many fun features:

View(first person, above view, ect.)
Feed Rock Raider
Name them!
Upgrade them
Put on an alarm!

And you can even make em' drive, but I have not got to there yet, but you can.

It is a good-buy for a cheap price of this.
Overall, pretty fun game, but challenging.
The graphics are good, (pretty impressive, I'd say), the sound is a 4.0, the music is 3.5, the control is a 4.0 for when RR's don't listen, and everything else is okay.

So, buy it, it is worth a cheap price, and you will be there for hours on the challenging level, so have fun with the new LEGO game!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent! a definate must buy!
This is a surpurb game created by lego but let's get more specific and let me give you some ratings

Graphics: these graphics are some of the best I have seen and I have seen a lot of graphics believe me, Overall I would give them a 5 out of 5

Sound: The sound is great. There is some cool music but when no music is on you hear water dripping in the cave and voices from your lego men echo. Overall I would give the sound a 5 out of 5

Controll: the controll is excellent. There is not a first person view, but a sky view of all your lego men walking around in the cave. All you have to do is click on them and tell them what to do, and they do it immediately. I would give the controll an excellet 5 out of 5

Difficulty: This game is intermediate in difficulty. There are some times while playing this game you think that you can not progress any further and right before you are about to go insane you find an answer that is quite obvious.

I hope this review was helpfull. A definate must have! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Game!
This game is great! it is also funny when you blow people up. Plus , it gives you driving skills. If you like cool, funny, and racing cds, this is the game for you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
This game is ok, but the races in each world are really similar, so you really only get 5 tracks. It is challenging, though. I haven't beaten it yet, but that's partly because I play my other games more.

If you don't already have the first one, Lego Racers, I recommend getting that instead. I like it better. It has 17 exciting races that are very different from each other. The building mode is easier and has better pieces and cars. Also, to my surprise, I found that the grapics in LR2 are not as good as they are in the original.

One good thing about Lego Racers 2 is that it's partly just adventure--you can explore the world you're visiting. I was also surprised at how big they made each world. As you're exploring, sometimes an inhabitant will give you a clue to help you in your search for the precious golden bricks, which buy you your way to other worlds. There are also bonus missions, 1 on each world (2 if you count the hard and easy levels you need to complete). In each one, you do a certain task around the area. For example, in the first world, you drive people around to different places, kind of like taxi service. You have to serve a certain amount of people in a certain amount of time.

Overall, I like this game, but I can certainly live without it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect #2! Thank you Lego!
This game kept me playing all Christmas Day and for two days after; until my parents said "Aren't you going to play with any of your other gifts?!" I really liked the graphics! What a pleasant sequel to Lego Racers 1.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absorbing, addictive racing game
The first Lego racers is fantastic and like others I rushed out to get this expecting more of the same. In fact the game has a very different look and feel which makes it easy to conclude that it is not as good. To get the bad news out of the way: Lego Racers 2 is more demanding on hardware, somewhat harder to play, only supports one saved game, and lacks the some of the friendly-fun appeal of the first.

On the plus side though, this game is far more absorbing. The various locations are complete little worlds, with villages, inhabitants you can chat to, and exotic terrain that you get to know really well. In order to progress you have to beat certain characters, like Sam Sinister who deposits slippery oil behind his car: it seems impossible at first, but as you get to know the track you gradually get better.

It's a more sophisticated game all round. The idea of bricks coming off your car every time you crash, and replenished by the pit stops, is great and adds excitement. The landscape has lots of interest, such as drive-thru waterfalls, cliff-side roads you can fall off, ice mazes, volcanoes with molten lava, wobbly rope bridges, and ... well, you get the idea.

Looking for a first racing game for a kid? Lego Racers 1 is it. But for sustained, compelling interest, Racers 2 is light-years ahead.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game
Wonderful game. The graphics are surprisingly good for a game involving legos. The speed of gameplay is moderate. The special part of this game is that you can actually blow up the other people's cars and make them run the end of the race. The unrelistic part though is that the lego people run 50 M.P.H.! If you want fun with out gore this is the game for you. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Boring game
This game is pretty fun at first, but it gets old very fast. You are called to do a certain task around the island, which is cool, until you get through the tasks and do the same ones over and over again. The car race was really exciting. I wondered why Lego Racers couldn't have any races like that. But overall, compared to the other Lego PC games, this one is quite boring.

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME GAME!!!!! BUY NOW!!!!!
This game rules! I used to have the right computer for it, but we got a new monotor that dosn't run the game! :( Anyway this game rocks the house! You can deleiver pizzas(only if your Pepper), help at the hospital, help at the gas station, go in races, and more! But if you give a pizza to the evil brickster, he esaces! And you have to catch him! It's pretty hard though. But you have to buy this game! It's a true LEGO classic!

Paul the great. :)

4-0 out of 5 stars Quick words
Game "Lego Island" by Mindscape, 1997, original does come with a configuration program before the game loads so that it does, in fact, run with Windows XP. Ages 6-12, but 4 year old kids that know how to use a mouse and a joystick have been seen using both (i.e., racing buy walking lego-people while clicking on their heads with the mose to turn their hats into flowers and race car helmets.) You visit rooms to bulid pre-set vehicles that kids have to cycle through parts shelves and drag on to the correct place. Legos can be colored, should is snappy, and my only beef is that there is no give in the movement. You go too far to one side of the road and your car just stops, no chance to travel onto the grass or the water. Ramps and inclindes snap the screen back in place very quickly. Good struts, or old game. There is enough to explore to give kids about a week of play now a days, but if they can read and are interested there is a lot of hidden easter eggs that will keep them busy.

it's kinda good but i am not sure if its very fun the problem is there isin't very much actiuon but if you have a slow computer don't get lego island 2 you will just have a ga,me that doesnt work so if you have a slow pc get this if your pc is fast get lego island 2

3-0 out of 5 stars Kinda boring
I agree with some of the reviewers on here: this game is BORING. All you do is walk around the island doing pointless stuff that doesn't help you get farther in the game. And there are annoying lego people who keep getting in your way, talking to you and dismantling themselves. There is a bug(at least with us): When you build a vehicle, you have to click in the EXACT right spot to pick up a piece. And the dumb annoying lego guy ALWAYS gets in your way when you're trying to click on the right spot.
To "win" the game, you have to on purpose set the Brickster loose, than catch him again, then everyone calls you a "hero". There are no challenging things to do. What a pointless idea.
The graphics are okay, but there was this on time when the street was colored like the ocean and the grass was colored like the street. Lego Island 2 is MUCH better. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Combining one of childhood's most enduring toys with the current crazefor Harry Potter, this game has a capacity for entertaining young players thatis almost magical. LEGO Creator: Harry Potter lets you use standard LEGOblocks to construct a world for Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Then you get to turnthem loose in it! Whether setting up a postal route for Harry's owl, practicingspells with the kids of Hogwarts or using the workshop to configure the LEGObuildings and structures, players will find this game thoroughly absorbing.

LEGO Creator: Harry Potter is atypical of children's programs, whichusually run players through a fixed set of activities or educational challenges.Instead, game designers have made a serious effort to leave things wide open andflexible, sticking close to the reason why kids enjoy LEGO in the first place.Players can place LEGO units--animals, characters, blocks, doors, chests--aroundthe landscape of Hogwarts. But this is no mere simulation of a real-life playexperience--this LEGO world is animated! With a single mouse click, playersbring their creations to life. Place a LEGO snake onscreen in this game, and itwill promptly slither for cover. Likewise, the Harry Potter characters--who areincredibly charming when rendered as standard LEGO people--will move around theenvironment created for them, even interacting when they come together!

While the complexity of this package makes it tougher to master than many games,a series of tutorials disguised as challenges can smooth out the learning curve.Users explore the school, build LEGO trains, and find lost animals, and as theydo, they learn the lay of the land. The challenges have another motivator builtin: without them, you can't cast all the magical spells otherwise available toHarry and the others.

LEGO Creator: Harry Potter frees you to build a stage and place upon itthe well-known characters from J.K. Rowling's novels. What happens next islimited only by your imagination. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy This Product!
Lego Creator: Harry Potter is a dumb game. It has tons of errors.
It's slower then a snail. I get very bored when playing this. Lego should of tested this a ALOT MORE! In the Credits and the website it says that it was tested and passed the standerds. There standerds must not be very high because this game is horrible. It frezzes on my computer alot. I figuired I didn't meet the System Requirements...but I did. In fact, I was higher then it recommeded. It asked for 65 RAM. I have 128 RAM. It asked for Pentium 2 266 MHz. I had that. It asked for a 4x CD-ROM drive. I had 56x! Lego hurried through the process of making software. They hurried because they wanted it to come out when the movie did. I had read the other bad reveiws but that did not make me stop wanted it. I got as a present for my birthday. The reviews were right after all. It did what it said it would do. In the beginning when you start the game they have a intro movie (I got to say it is pretty funny!) and it shows Hogwarts changing all the time and stuff like that. After that you get excited and want to play like crazy! And then it stops completly and its crashed. Then the fun and excitment go's right out of you. Before it crashes it's still itsn't that fun. It's slow and every time you place a mini-figuire or a model it dosen't place it in the world. Plus you got this annoying little wizard thing that talks and talks and talks more. He is a help opition but most the time he dosen't help you. You can turn him off but still he dosen't talk as much but still does! I am 10 years old and I even get mad when it frezzes. This can be annoying to 5 through 8 year old kids. It comes with a free demo program. I installed one of them and it crashed before it even showed the intro movie! I installed many others and they do the same thing! That shows that Lego hurries through there Software products.

A Short Pros and Cons List:

Pros:
Build in the workshop and anything possible!
Build your own people or mini-figuires.
Go inside Hogwarts and install furniture.

Cons:
Frezzes Up ALL the Time.
Very Slow.
Dosen't paint it's self correctey. (Example: Somtimes grass is red!)
A Annoying Help Wizard is always with you.

5-0 out of 5 stars LEGO Creator Harry Potter
This game is pretty fun, but has some errors.

1.Playing

You can play in Daigon Alley, Platform 9 3/4, Hogwarts Grounds, and Hogwarts. Depending on where you are, you can build things that transport you to areas like Hagrid's hut, the forbidden corridor, and other places.

2. Building

You have a giant virtual model book, which has different things in each area. You drag models into the world, like people, scenery, and animals. Then, you hit play and they run around, greeting each other and casting spells. They react differently to each other depending on which house they are from. You can even make your own students and sort them manual or randomly into a house!

In the workshop, you can build your own models to either make building instructions for to print out to build them with real bricks, or place them in the world for decoration.

Pros:

1. Enourmas flexibility

2. Entertaining minifigures

3. Original Idea

4. Fun tutorials

Cons:

1. Only works on a powerful computer with lots of uncompressed space. (Like mine)

2. You can't put any model anywhere

3. DIfficult to use controls

3-0 out of 5 stars Boring and no point in playing it
This game is a little pointless and boring. All you do is watch lego Harry Potter people walk around, bump into things for hours, say "ah" and bow. This is not an adventure game. Sure, you can build stuff for the lego guys to walk into, but then what? Watch them all crowd around to get in it and then get stuck? Boring.
There is a bug: the challenge movies freeze and won't work and the computer feaks out. :(
The best thing(and funniest)thing that happened on this game was when my brother put a naked lego guy in a tiny cage and we watched him try to get out. You can also put hundreds of boats in the lake, trap ten thousand frogs in a 3"x 3" fence and make Harry get stuck on the roof of the castle and watch him fall to his doom.
But if you are insane about Harry Potter than this is for you.

1-0 out of 5 stars HIDEOUS GAME for a Great Theme
This product has two solid names behind it -- Lego and Harry Potter, and it SHOULD be a GREAT game.

In fact, this is a game released on schedule, but before being finished. Its controls are contra-intuitive, clumsy, and v-e-r-y s-l-o-w. It locks up and freezes, some times coming back and executing your mouse click up to a minute after you've thought it didn't take, and have moved on. When it's running, it's sensitve and twitchy. Those who have said the controls are bad or frustrating are being quite kind. It takes hours to get the simplest things set up.

Then, when you're finished, you can't actually DO much with your creations.

Lego has a variety of software titles and should include good products; perhaps the second title, "LEGO Creator: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" will be usable and fun.

1-0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter is cool! This is not!
I agree with most of you that this game most people shouldn't buy! This game is very, I MEAN VERY, hard to control!!!
I just hope you guys don't have to suffer through what I have. Trust me, this is not a great item unless you collect Lego(Tm)
or Harry Potter(Tm) things.

Read Below if you are still going to buy anyways.

On the box it says ages 6+ can play and control, well I am 13 and I couldn't even control this!

5-0 out of 5 stars The most detailed game I own!
If you want a game with your favorite lego technic vehicles, awesome race/battles, and most of all, incredible realism, then this is the game for you!

This game offers 3 different modes of play:

Quick Race-Random Track and Vehicle
Arcade-Chose your track and Vehicle
Career-Work through the Multi-Challenge Races to win the Drome Racers cup!

There are also 3 different types of terrain and vehicles:

-Street
-Off-Road
-Drag Race

A street race normally takes place in a big city. In a street race, the cars have thin racing slicks and are faster than the off-roaders.

An off-road race takes place on a dirt track. Off-road races have "hazards" such as tornado, lava, falling boulders, etc. The cars have thicker tires and are the slowest of all.

The drag race stage is much different. The cars are automatically manual transmission, so you don't just hold down the accelerator the whole way down the long strip of pavement. Be careful! If your rpm's get to high, your engine will blow.

So, once again, if you like extremely detailed lego racing, buy this game!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty darn good
This game isn't what I would call the best in the whole world, but, like the above title, it's pretty darn good!
The cool-named cars are awesome and more advanced than the ones in the other Lego Racers games, and the graphics are very nice. This game can be a little confusing at first, but in time you'll get it.
So in other words, this game is very fun and fast-paced, so I recommend that you should buy it! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Welcome to LEGOLAND. But don't relax--you're not visiting this place; you're running it. And if you don't stay on your toes in this blocky little world, you'll have hungry guests, broken-down rides, and bankruptcy to deal with.This game, which requires a Windows operating system, starts with a phone call: "Congratulations, you just got the job as trainee park manager!" Upon reporting to LEGOLAND, you discover that a resident mad scientist recently managed to blow up the whole park. Your job suddenly gets more complicated, as your new boss, park manager Jonathan Ablebody, coaches you on how to put the park back together.

A series of tutorials teach the fundamentals of park management, from landscaping to ride repair. Free play is possible once the tutorials are mastered. The more a player builds, the more troubleshooting is necessary. Build too many rides and an alarm sounds--you'll need to build a power station to keep them all running. If you don't hire enough mechanics, rides break down. Panic and hire too many mechanics and you'll hear a "ka-ching" as your cash reserves are depleted by a bunch of lazy LEGO fix-it folks loafing around the park with nothing to do.

This game is about management, multitasking, and sucking up to the boss. The folks at LEGO Media even created the perfect supervisor. He pleasantly orders players to do difficult tasks while never deigning to lift one of his own little yellow pincers to help out.

Kids who have visited an actual LEGOLAND may enjoy slaving away in this virtual one. One warning: LEGO manages to plug the product with a selection entitled "Watch LEGOLAND Movies." Click on it and you'll end up watching an ad for LEGOLAND theme parks. Evidently the only creatures more ruthless than little plastic managers are the flesh-and-blood ones managing them.

3-0 out of 5 stars " Not what I expected it to be"
This game was pretty good but did not meet satisfaction. Here are the reasons.
1. The game is kind of boring because you only build castles and minatures
2. The building and the graphics are good but the space to work in is not very good
3. On the box it says you rescue the fair damsel, it dosen't seem you rescue anyone
4. Overall the game is 3 stars due to being boring and and lack of action.

2-0 out of 5 stars A disappointing Creator wannabe
Once again, a Lego game that can't handle the size of my imagination. I was really excited when this game came out because I'd been longing for knights and castles and such in Creator. I just wanted to be able to build the coolest castles ever, that I could never build in real life because I didn't have enough pieces. But the building area in Knights' Kingdom is tiny! The only really cool thing I remember being able to do was turn a castle transparent and then paint it a different color, but have it stay transparent. So I made a ghost castle! But after that I gave up, because I couldn't make any of my ideas work in the space I had.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this awesome game!
I just turned eleven. This game is really awesome because you can design and create your own lego castles on your PC. The people "come to life" and you can play inside your finished castle. You are able to take pieces out of a "lego bucket" and color them and design them however you'd like. I took this game out of the library and it's on my Christmas list!

5-0 out of 5 stars This is so much fun!
This game is tons of fun. You get to set up your own kingdom and then bring it to life. You can make the characters battle--my son loves that part!

Amazon.com Review

Armed with pizzas, a skateboard, and a cool attitude, Pepper Roni--a freckle-faced pizza delivery boy--must save LEGO Island from a bad guy called the Brickster. Our hero dude travels from the depths of the sea to the outer limits of space (to Ogel Island... get it?) in pursuit of his man in this engrossing CD-ROM.

Boasting a whopping 18 subgames scattered throughout an intricate realm of islands, undersea worlds, deserts, and space, LEGO Island 2 focuses more on adventure and less on construction than previous LEGO titles. Players assume the identity of renaissance dude Pepper; pizza delivery, deep-sea diving, astronaut training, and jousting are just a handful of the well-rendered experiences that await adventurers. The arrow keys get quite a workout as the game progresses, as they control everything from speedboats to parachutes to tyrannosaurs as Pepper changes modes of transport. Pepper churns through this world fending off the Brickster's henchmen robots, collecting pages of a "constructopedia," and mastering various challenges in order to progress. Subgames must be completed in a sequence, and can then be re-accessed from Pepper's house. Players must work to build Pepper's pad, find the subgames, and chat with other characters for clues about how to move through this LEGO landscape. Players who want it all handed to them on one clickable screen will be frustrated: LEGO wants you to work for your pleasure, and get some calluses on those fingertips.

The charm of this impressive Windows-only program lies in the attention paid to detail, dialogue, and creative fun. The undersea game doesn't just have fish--it has narwhals and rowdy pirate skeletons growling curses. A knight straight out of Monty Python and the Holy Grail intones "Nay, nay, nay, one-who's-name-is-a-spice" when Pepper asks for help. Creators put a skateboard park on the island just for the heck of it. LEGO Island 2 provides both great gameplay and ample opportunity to freestyle. Also, the fluid detail of this program belies the chunky origins of LEGO life as we know it.

That detail comes with a price: it takes some time to load the subgames and scene changes even if your system meets the game's requirements. If LEGO Island 2 were one of Pepper's pizzas, it'd be an ultra mega deluxe, piled high with mummies, pterodactyls, and renegade robots. It'd also take a longer time to bake than your plain cheese, but the wait would be worth it. (Ages 6 to 99) --Anne Erickson ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars It don't work!
Now, I realise that computers are different from PC to PC. But mine exceeds the requirements. I have WIN98SE. I'm very good with computers. Lego Island Xtreme works perfectly. Lego Racers 2 locks up on occation, but works good most of the time. But this thing won't even load. The screen starts to go black and then there's an error, drop to desktop. Annoying! Gonna try it with another machine soon. But I'm glad I didn't pay much for this because somebody gets whatever money I paid (not amazon, got it elsewhere) and I get a game that doesn't work. Very flawed series on the programming side. Buyer beware of products from Lego. Read user comments before you buy.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not compatible
Bought this for my son as a Christmas gift. We had an older system that ran Windows 95/98. It ran, but took FOREVER to load the different themes. We bought a brand new system with Windows XP and now it won't run Lego Island 2 at all! We tried patches and checked the Electronic Arts website for troubleshooting with XP. My husband has his Master's degree in computers and he couldn't get it to run! Don't buy it if you have a new system with Windows XP. This game is not compatible.
The Learning Co and Humongous software run perfect with XP.

4-0 out of 5 stars Challenging and cool
First of all you start the game as Pepper, a pizza delivering dude with the food. But as soon as you give a pizza order to the evil Brickster, he escapes. While exploring lots of different islands this game offers challenging sub-games and fun adventures. The last level can be very frustrating because it freezes and thats why I gave it 4 stars but the whole game is just plain fun. You can ride in the skatepark and play any sub-game that you have already won. There are tons of ways to explore, by dinosaur , by helicopter, and more! To sum it all up, Lego Island 2 is a great game except for it takes to long to load but the gameplay is beutiful with sharp grafics.

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't get the...software to work.
This software won't load onto a brand new PC. I've had to browse into the disk to load the pieces of the program, and even then it works only spottily. Takes forever to pieces to load -- and this is with an up-to-date system. I have another friend who's in the computer business and he's had a lot of frustrating problems with this program for his kids, too.

It's a whole new way of playing with LEGOs: no blocks required! Kids still need a vivid imagination, but in today's tech-savvy world, they'll also need a 3-D graphics accelerator card. Racers allows players to build, customize, and race both cars and drivers. Building is unlimited, and there's 12 different tracks in a variety of settings to choose from.

It's an interesting exercise to compare the real-life elements to their electronic counterparts. Any LEGO fan will recognize infamous opponents from their plastic incarnations; Captain Redbeard, King Kahuka, and Basil the Batlord are some of our favorites, and they're just as great-looking onscreen as they are in the toy chest kits. The level of hand-eye coordination required to build amazing cars is, we think, lower than with real LEGOS (and there's no dropping and breaking possible!). Parents don't need to buy a million different sets to get all desired pieces--they're all right there on the screen.

We found the racing arena to be a huge hit with arcade-game fans. The tracks are treacherous, the themes are wildly detailed, and there's lots of hidden power-ups and shortcuts for when your skill level increases. If you think you've got all the tracks mastered, try them out in reverse. It's harder than you might think! Drivers, start your engines, because LEGO Racers is worth the ride. --Jill Lightner ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Lego Racers is EXCELLENT!!!!
Lego Racers was initially a challenge to my son, but rewarded him handsomely by opening up extra circuits and races after he mastered existing circuits. We always knew when he opened a new circuit, he got so excited! This has definitely been the "most-often-played" computer game we own. The sound effects are appropriate for a 6-year-old, but "bad" enough that he loved them; the songs lively; and the on-screen environment is realistic enough to really enjoy the various races.

The rest of us, and some extended family, have gotten into the game too, we range in age from 39 to 6. And all of us have enjoyed it. The "versus" races are very exciting and fun, especially when the 2 competitors are of similar skill.

I highly recommend buying this game, for any age, for a very entertaining and challenging (depending on your "racing game" skills, of course) use of your leisure time. There are enough shortcuts, surprises, unknowns, power-ups, and enough versatility to surpass the price tag. This is a lot of "bang for the buck." And don't forget, you can even build your own car with legos, name it; and assemble AND NAME the driver. "Gentlemen..... (and ladies and children....) START YOUR ENGINES!!"

We'll have Lego Racers 2 very soon.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lego Racers
Lego racers is a stunning game with moderately good graphics. It's fun to design and build your own car but it's hard to make exactly what you want. The game is challenging but not to hard to beat. There is a nice variety of tracks and there are recognizable lego characters. Also, it's fun to create your own wacky Lego characters, earning parts from winning race. The sound is nice and different characters say different fun things. I enjoyed this game, but it wasn't the best. Unless you really want to play Lego Racers, I suggest Nicktoons.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to play, easy to understand even for parents
Previous to buying this game we only had educational software for my six year old son. It's a really easy game for a young child to use plus it helps raise interest and familiarity with computers. He's got really good at this and we'll buy more lego software I'm sure. The only downside to this game is that he's got so good at it that I don't stand a chance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game.
Even though I'm a girl, I just love picking up racing games and adventure games for my computer or my PS2 and playing them. My brother got this "LEGO racing" game as a gift: and right away I started playing it. I was quite impressed with LEGO racing, though; I was expecting something more for 6-year olds that wasn't very challenging and only had something like 2 levels.

In this game, your goal is to become one of the greatest racers ever and try to beat the ultimate racer, Rocket Racer. You design a racer, or use a pre-made one. You start on Captain Redbeard, a very easy racer to beat, and work your way up to all 7 racers, all the way up to Rocket Racer, the hardest racer to beat. If you complete a "circuit race," then you will receive points, and move to the next racer. Single races are if you want to do a single race.

The most fun part of the game (in my opinion) is also power-ups + weapons. They help you get ahead of people or keep other people behind you. They are little floating Lego's in the air along the track and you pick them up to get a power-up or a weapon. There are four different colours of legos: each represents a weapon. To upgrade it, you need to pick up a white lego. You can only upgrade it 3 times (including when you receive it): the more you upgrade it, the more powerful the weapon is. There's four power-ups/weapons in this game:

Red Lego (things you have to aim at people): 1st: A regular bomb to throw at people 2nd: Clip thing that you hook onto a car and it brings you ahead. 3rd: A rocket-missile thing that tracks people down and hits them.
Yellow Lego (gas and tornado things to slow people down): 1st: gas that slows people down and swirls them around. 2nd: This little sucker that holds people back for a little while. 3rd: A mummy floaty thing that floats in the air and when people run into it then you'll get dizzy and stay there for a while.
Green Lego (power-ups to speed you ahead): 1st: A very little speed-booster that only lasts for 5 seconds. 2nd: A speed-booster that brings you about ¼ of the track ahead if you use it wisely. 3rd: A VERY good speed-booster that swirls around you and brings you ¼ of the track ahead.
Blue Lego (shields): 1st: It blocks you for a very short amount of time from other people. 2nd: A good shield that blocks you for a good amount of time and whenever someone shoots you with it turned on, it bounces of you and shoots back to them. Works GREAT on bombs. 3rd: Very much like the second upgraded shield except it lasts about 5-10 seconds longer.

Hope this was helpful. :) So click "yes" if this review is helpful to you!

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome, but tough on your computer
I have this game and it is really fun!!!! The only reason I left out one star is because, like all LEGO games, it is really hard on your computer. I also had two other lego games, and together the three totally crashed the computer. My parents won't let us install any games on the computer now. It's a shame, because I really miss playing LEGO Racers. It's not extremely challenging, not if you're played other racing games and are good at them. However, beating Rocket Racer is very (underline ten times) difficult. One of my favorite things to do is creating my own racers to race with. You can mix-match different legs, bodies, heads, and helmets or hats to make your own cool/funny/wierd racer! So, its a great game, REALLY fun, but don't buy it unless you have a really powerful computer. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun when it works
The game allows you to bild your own car using LEGO pieces and then race on either individual tracks or curcuits (a series of 4 tracks one after the other with a combined score). The game is really fun and both me an my son enjoy playing it except for:

*The graphics often become choppy making the game unplayable. There is a fix suggested on LEGO's website but it is not for the faint of heart. Judging by their technical support page there is a high number of compatibility issues with graphics cards.

*The interface for designing cars is awkward and slow - pieces are hard to find and their size is hard to judge untill you actually try to put them in place.

After playing a few races we loved it. Then after the choppy graphics problem occured for the first time, we were very frustrated with it. After a few hours of research and fixing it we like playing it again. Overall, it is lots of fun but the programming could have been better.

Great. And great graphics . I hope you make LEGO RACER 3.

5-0 out of 5 stars My kids love this
I actually bought this based on the review I had read here. I have never bought a 'mindless' game for my kids, so I wanted somthing simple. It IS simple and the kids adore it. It is not that sophisticated, but that doesn't seem to bother my 5 or 7 year old. They are truly addicted to this game, much to my delight and chagrin.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun Racing Game-Just Buy It!
This is a fun racing game for, yes, kids of all ages. Our four year old can play it with my help (she steers, I work the "pedals"). The races make her laugh, and she narrates each one as she drives ("Here comes the bridge!" and "Don't crash into that guy!") She also likes making her own car and driver (again with my help).

Older kids (like me) will appreciate the fact that you can just start driving, without messing with car building and tuning. Then, if you want to make a custom car, you can do it anytime.

This is an ideal first driving game. Don't get it for anyone who has already mastered other driving games, because this is a starter game. Don't get it for an older kid if they would be insulted by the cartoon Lego characters.

Final note: I read a positive newspaper review of Lego Racers II, then saw some negative reviews here on Amazon. So I looked at the original Lego Racers, saw nothing but positive comments, and ordered it here. It turns out that was a good decision. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great software 3D modeling and a game
I was very skeptical of how good a piece of Lego software could be when compared to the actual Lego building bricks. This software offers a very unique outlet for planning out Lego models, cities or just designs in general. There are unlimited pieces to build buildings, autos, helicopters, people and gardens. However the design space is limited to about 16 x 16 road pieces, which might be a lot for beginners, but not for expert city designers. All that being said, there are pre-made models and you can create models (and towns) and save them on your computer, but you can't swap the models with friends. When you have created your models there is a feature that creates building instructions for you and you can print them out and build the model with your own hands. When you are done creating a Lego town, there is a mode which lets you play it, everything moves, interacts, walks, drives, flies and explodes and you can watch it or drive behind the wheel of your Lego models.

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST game!
We love this Game! Our whole family likes to play it! My son especially loves to build using this game. He's a big lego (actual toy) fan anyways, but with this game you can build a city and it comes to life right before your eyes! It's fun and you can keep adding things to make your city more commplex! We love it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for younger kids
Lego Stunt Rally is a great game for kids age 5-10. My friend, though, bought it ... and really enjoyed it. My friend is 7 years old.

My brother, age 12, bought it ... and loved it. He loved making tracks and meeting new characters. But even he could tell the racing options were bad. When you race in this game, your car is basicly out of your control.

But even I loved the race tracks and pieces. ... Read more
