This sequel to the top-selling, LEGO Island returns players to Lego Island but also expands exploration into three additional islands. This time the player becomes Pepper, the skateboarding pizza delivery boy.
The game has two parts. In the first part, players explore Lego Island as they deliver pizzas to specific inhabitants.
In the second part, Brickster, the trickster from LEGO Island, breaks out of jail and wreaks havoc on Lego Island. The player goes on a quest to right Brickster’s wrongs and catch that troublemaker. In the process, players must accomplish 18 arcade-style challenges.
The adventure is fun, but the core of this game is ability to drive a passel of things from police cars, to hand gliders, to even a dinosaur.
A few words of caution, this software uses the newest version of DirectX (Version 8.0) so update your video drivers before loading. Also, kid-testers were frustrated by long load times that pop up periodically in the middle of the game--but it did not keep them from playing!
