I never heard of the first one but this is an awesome game
this prisoner has stole all the houses on lego island in you gotta get them back and defeat the prisoner. you will be in places outside lego island in some middleages land , adventure lan d and the moon the game is actually full whit mini games and the game is on the short side but it is really fun .
on lego island itself is like a gta city but then whitout the violent but you can jump into cars,boats,jet skies and choppers wich is al pretty cool . you can also get on your skate board where ever you are just like in bully wich is cool .
the mini games are all really fun and it got some quiet good music and the graphics are good too altho the game is short it got some replay value to it and you wanna do some of these mini games again .
overall lego island 2 is a fun game .
