Gamer plural system playing the videod game.
Though this is mostly for Vixi's sake. I'm here to keep my games sorted and to help chip away at the proverbial backlog. As well as dump my thoughts afterward.
A lot of older games I've rated but not reviewed are games I'm looking to replay since a good chunk of them I haven't played since childhood.
My general scoring system:
5 - Peak
4.5 - Excellent
4 - Outstanding
3.5 - Pretty great!
3 - Good
2.5 - Average
2 - Mediocre
1.5 - Tiresome
1 - Really Bad
0.5 - Agony

This game is technically great, if a little clunky and shallow in places. The difficulty slider alone is one of the coolest ideas to come out of this game. It's just annoying that dying decreases the difficulty and the only way to put the difficulty back up is to start the entire level over. (Which sucks considering the higher difficulties can mean you get 3 or 4 mistakes before you die and levels can be 15+ minutes long.)
While this game lasts a lot longer than I feel like it has actual gameplay ideas to support its length, at least in terms of the setting, each level offers something different. It's like an entire abridged anime in video game form.
Would be a 7/10 if it didn't actually physically hurt me to play it for any longer than 20 minutes.

I remember even as a kid I was so disappointed by this. The combat is mindless, and it does that late 90s/early 2000s scrimblo bimblo thing where it's trying to be 4 different video games in one, but when the normal gameplay barely works, this means stuff like the mine cart level works even less.
I wonder if this game could've been a bit more coherent if it just got to be a played-straight game adaptation of the movie, rather than trying to recap 3 arcs of the Bionicle story in 7 really short levels. Because as is, the plot feels like it's on fast-foward, and that WITH me knowing the story of Bionicle. I can't imagine how much of this game is just complete gibberish to somebody who didn't know Bionicle first-hand.
Ass, but when it's a commercial in video game form, what's to be expected?

On one hand, it has a simple but strong mechanical identity as a competitive platformer racing game with an emphasis on momentum tricks and styling on your opponents.
On the other hand, the items ruin the game balance, later levels throw in obnoxious stage gimmicks, and each grand prix lasts way too long.
