* ObviousBeta: The second game lost a lot of dedicated people in its development, and the non-dedicated just wanted to ship the game and be done with it.

* ObviousBeta: The second game lost shows a lot of dedicated people in signs of this, with its development, jerky physics, excruciatingly long load screens (which were the result of lousy programming, by the way), and the non-dedicated just wanted to ship the generally seeming incomplete as a whole in a number of ways. The game was rushed quite a bit and be done with it.had a good chunk of its planned content cut out, which left it in this state.

** The FishingMinigame was removed in the PS1 version of ''LEGO Island 2'', but even so, the pond at the end of Desert Speedster is still intact, and Pepper still tells Johnny, Miss Reed and Dr. Kilroy he caught a big fish.
** Additionally, the PS1 version also ''completely'' leaves out the Brickster's initial exchange with Pepper at the end of the last minigame before he runs for water. While it didn't make much sense in the first place why he has water inside a cell that one can easily lock himself into, the PS1 version just makes it even more nonsensical by removing the mention that he was even getting water in the first place, making it seem like he just runs for his own cell and locks himself in it for absolutely no reason.

* AlternateContinuity: Each port of ''LEGO Island 2'' had a different story than the other versions. While the PS1 and PC versions had somewhat similar stories, the GBA and GBC versions had completely different plots, leaving it questionable which one of the three story variations is canon.

In the third game, ''Island {{Xtreme|KoolLetterz}} Stunts'', Pepper is starring in a movie where the Brickster is the villain and the Infomaniac gets kidnapped. The game takes a more WideOpenSandbox feel compared to previous games, allowing you to transvers around a much larger island and partake in side missions with the island's populous. Though the games were not based on any pre-existing LEGO theme, [[RecursiveAdaptation LEGO sets based on the games were released for the first time ever]] to co-aside with the release of ''Island Xtreme Stunts''. The game was released for UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 and Game Boy Advance. A PC version was also released, [[PortingDisaster but was sadly scorned by performance issues]].

** The [[http://web.archive.org/web/20040605201455/http://www.lego.com/eng/interactive/faqhints.asp?Title=Island&Code=PC&ACTION=Hints official LEGO website]] claimed that OneHundredPercentCompletion of the first game would unlock five bonus levels, marked by "B" on the Infomaniac's map. In the following years, fans have attempted countless times to unlock these bonus levels, all to no avail, leading to the conclusion that these bonus levels are not included in the released game. It is often speculated, although unconfirmed, that these bonus levels had something to do with the buildings that were perpetually closed for remodeling and serve no purpose in the game, such as the superstore and the bank.



* PoliceAreUseless: DoubleSubversion. When the Brickster escapes jail, the police officers Nick and Laura Brick take part in the chase to catch him, removing blockades and investigating the helicopter pieces along the way, and are ultimately the ones who arrest him once again. That does not change the fact that the Brickster was escape from jail so easily and steal the police helicopter, or the fact that most of the work to catch the Brickster once again is done by Pepper Roni, ''a pizza delivery boy'', instead.
** Discussed in WebVideo/{{brutalmoose}}'s review of ''LEGO Island'':
-->'''brutalmoose''': But don't worry, though. Even though I just released the only criminal on LEGO Island, the police are basically like, "Oh, s'all good."
-->'''Infomaniac''': So we need someone to race over there! Someone who can use a vehicle that can travel on roads and paths, over ramps, and in a jiffy!
-->'''brutalmoose''': Oh, you mean a motorcycle.
-->'''Infomaniac''': A skateboard, perhaps!
-->'''brutalmoose''': [[FlatWhat What?]] There are two people on motorcycles right there! [''arrows point at Nick and Laura, both riding motorcycles''] But no, the general consensus is that a skateboard would be a much, much better idea. [[SurroundedByIdiots Everyone here? Idiots.]]

The PC-exclusive first game puts you in the shoes of one of five different playable characters, with activities including delivering pizzas, participating in races, and playing the occasional minigame. Woe to he who chooses the "Pizza/Brickster" combination assignment, though... Aside from the main plot with Pepper, the player can also control the sibling police officers, Nick and Laura Brick, and Pepper's employers/adoptive parents Mama and Papa Brickolini.
