Lego Island was the first Lego game with voiced Lego characters, it was also an amazingly fun game. Voice was a huge part of it, Papa Brickolini singing songs in the kitchen while whipping up his famous pizza pie, Nubby asking profound questions about life, such as "If two cars of opposite colors crash into each other, do they also clash?", or the crazed undead pirate cabin, mocking you from his dark and shadowy lair within the secret cave. The voice acting was fantastic and it was set in an open world unlike anything I had ever seen at the time. You took on the brickster, Biked, drove, jet skiied and ran your way around the island, saw houses explode into a million pieces and reform as only Lego Houses can, and dodged giant Skeletons and monkeys. I loved it.
Jeff and Brad seemed a bit surprised by the ferocity with which Drew Rebutted Brads claim that Lego City is the first fully voiced Lego game, but their ignorance of Lego Island is to blame. It was a very cool game and may have been the game that made me realize how much fun could be had in a videogame world. Quite frankly i'm a bit shocked they didn't encounter it
Also the music was freaking fantastic.
Also this theme song, was pretty great
So yea, this was just a Blurb to say that Drew was completely accurate in pointing out Lego Island as the first fully voiced Lego game, if you haven't played it, it might be too late now (Here's a playthrough, of the entire game.), but if you have, I hope you share the same fondness for this most special of videogames. Maybe someday we will get a random PC game video out of it, if Drew truly has appreciation for, if not, it was nice to take a second and remember just how fantastic Lego games were, even back then, heres to hoping Lego City improves upon Island's Legacy.
