If you are a hard-core video gamer then you must be well aware of real-time strategy games. Real-time strategy games are one of the most popular genres. As the name suggests, you have to play it in real-time so if the game asks you to wait for two hours then you have to wait for two hours in real. Lego Rock Raiders 1999 is one such real-time strategy game that has gained a lot of popularity because of its appealing game theme.
The following description will help you to understand the mechanism of the game.
For this game, you will play as a miner who leads a team of miners (Rock Raiders). However, you will not be a normal miner on earth; instead, you will be mining at Planet U. There are several missions, for each mission your team will conduct deep underground mining. You are required to collect energy crystals and Lego ores to expand the mining operation. By collecting energy crystals, you can upgrade buildings and vehicles. After the first mission, you will have to complete the other missions to unlock them. At each mission, you will have to gather a specific number of energy crystals that will eventually rise as you reach the next mission. Furthermore, to Support the player, you can search for training missions on the main menu. There are eight training missions where you can learn how to control.
As easy as it may sound, but it is not because, the game comes up with the number of obstacles in its way. There will be monsters, natural disasters like landslides, eroding lava and cave-ins. Besides, you will have to save trapped rock raiders and energy crystals from monsters eating it away. The mission will only end once you have completed all the objectives of it. After the final mission, the game ends with an outro cut scene.
Lego Rock Raiders Versus Power Miners
Under the banner of Real-time strategy games, there comes the name of Power Miners too. Power Miners is quite similar to Rock Raiders. In both the games, a team of miners searches for energy crystals and discovers monsters. However, Power Miners have introduced some upgrades in terms of a variety of colored vehicles, powerful thunder driller, better rock monsters, and new natural disasters. Also, the graphics are better than the Rock Raiders.
However, here are some of the points that still make Lego Rock Raiders much better than Power Miners.
- The storyline is very engaging.
- Superb cut scenes.
- The soundtrack is good.
- Vehicles are great.
- Easy to Play and control.
These are some of the downsides, which other real-time strategy games cater but lack in Lego Rock Raiders.
- At one point, it gets boring.
- Monotonous gameplay.
- Sometimes it crashes down.
Lego Rock Raiders is one of the interesting games out there that entertain the player; however, this game does have loopholes that take away 3 points. Therefore, I will give it a solid 7 out of 10.
