Lego Island Xtreme Stunts for the PC is a reasonable little game that will appeal to Lego fans of between about 9yrs and 12yrs above anyone else. It's not very widely available anymore as it's an older PC game meant for use on Win 98, Win ME or Win XP. If you want to buy a copy, you're looking at paying around £5 if you find the right retailer. In my opinion, that is the most that this game is worth considering the better, more modern Lego games that are out in the shops these days.
This game is fairly easy to get installed, but working out how to play it takes a little bit longer. The idea of the game is that you're a little Lego man who is performing stunts as part of a Hollywood film or similar. You have to work out what it is that the game wants you to do first and foremost, and that took us a good few minutes to figure out the first time we played this game!
Then you have to use your controls to perform the best stunts possible, which is really something that the grandson is just not old enough, or imaginative enough, to do anyway. When you do strike the right chords, the stunts are good fun to watch, and the standard of the graphics is really very good considering the age of this game. It's striking those right chords that's a bit beyond us though. We also found that both times when we tried to play this, our PC froze every so often for a second or so. It doesn't sound like much but it really does disrupt play after a while.
For an older child of say 9yrs or more, this game might be an enjoyable addition to their collection - especially if they're mad about Lego and generally quite good with computer games. It's definitely not for young or amateur gamers though, and it's not been a big hit with us at all. If you think it might be for you though, it's available on the PS2 as well as the PC.
