In LEGO Rock Raiders, you lead and control a team of highly trained engineers as they explore three underground worlds consisting of lava, ice and rock. Your objective is to mine tunnels and collect energy crystals and LEGO ore to be used to power and build new machinery. Obstacles and dangers lurk around every corner, though, as the precious materials are guarded by several indigenous creatures including Rock, Lava and Ice monsters, Slimy Slugs, bats and spiders.
Your crew of five includes Bandit (navigator and sailor), Docs (geologist), Jet (pilot), Sparks (mechanic) and Axle (machinery operator). To keep the team safe, you need to establish and maintain a Rock Raiders Headquarters and defend it from attack from the menacing denizens of the underground. To accomplish the mission, you control a fleet of mining vehicles and machines (hover scout, digger, transport truck, rapid rider, laser cutter, tunnel scout, loader dozer, granite grinder, chrome crusher and cargo carrier) and various tools (drill, shovel, hammer, spanner, laser beam, pusher beam, dynamite and freezer beam).
LEGO Rock Raiders is designed for building block enthusiasts ages eight and up, features a point-and-click interface and requires a 3D accelerator. Adjustable options include game speed, music volume, sound effects volume, brightness, help menus and graphic displays.
Lego Rock Raiders is a game that a parent might want to buy his or her child(ren) as an alternative to other more violent computer games. Lego Rock Raiders is also a game that a parent might want to buy his or her child(ren) as an alternative to a sleeping pill.
The game is, of course, based on Lego's popular building-block set that everybody knows, loves, and accidentally swallows. A group of Rock Raiders just happened to be passing by in their large and well-rendered starship when a wormhole opened up and sucked them in. The wormhole spit them out in an uncharted region of the Gamma Quadrant...erm, I mean, when they emerged their ship was badly damaged and they were forced to land on a nearby planet in order to mine ore and energy crystals so that they could make repairs.
The graphics in Rock Raiders are simple yet clean. The Legomen (and women) all look the way they should, the lighting fits perfectly, and the animations are smooth. For those familiar with Dungeon Keeper 1 and 2, one might forget which game he is playing for just a split second (I know I did; I kept wondering why the cursor wouldn't smack an idle Rock Raider every now and then).
The sound in the game is also well-made. Music consists of a background, low-key, bass-heavy, techno that blends in well with the underground environment. Voice acting and identification cues are effective in their execution, though perhaps too effective when it comes to the Chief's Shakespere-length monologues...err...mission briefings. For being a little plastic man, the Chief sure has big lungs =P.
And then there comes the gameplay in Rock Raiders: sitting, waiting, and wishing that your cursor really was the hand in Dungeon Keeper so that you could slap your workers in order to make them go faster. The AI for your Legomen is pretty good, so good in fact that with only a few mouse clicks you have earned the joy of staring emptily at the screen watching your Rock Raiders pick their way precariously over rubble and carry ore for the rest of the mission. Even when the mission objectives are to rescue a stranded mining team, the gameplay is still the same: watch your men mine on their own so that you have enough resources to build something; this type of play gets boring very quickly. Combat is also nonexistant: if a monster enters your base then a single click of a mouse button will put the base on alert and the Legomen will repel the monster on their own.

It's a pity that a cute and attractive game turned out to be such a bore. Young kids and Lego nuts will probably like it but older audiences should look elsewhere.

LEGO Rock Raiders is an early 3dfx-only game with rushed development and no post-release updates, leading to an unstable experience on modern versions of Microsoft Windows. This guide is intended to help run it on newer computers.
- Locate the directory LEGO Rock Raiders is installed to. By default, it installs to
LEGO MediaGamesRock Raidersin the Program Files folder, which is typically
C:Program Fileson 32-bit computers or
C:Program Files (x86)on 64-bit computers.
- Copy the entire
Rock Raidersfolder to a location outside of the Program Files directory. This helps avoid dealing with administrator permission prompts when adding, editing, or removing files.
- Optionally, create multiple copies of
Rock Raiderseither for backup purposes or for installing or creating different mods.
- Optionally, create multiple copies of
- Dig up your game directory and move it to somewhere out of Program Files, like My Documents. Windows 10 hates people mucking around with Program Files, and you'll need to do a lot of mucking - so put it somewhere safe. While you're here, it's a good idea to just make about five backups. It's also a good idea to go into Control Panel -> Folder Options and 'Show extensions for known file types' or something. As part of the initial setup, delete the shortcuts that come installed ('Basic' and 'Advanced' - you won't need 'em)
- Make sure LRR does not need the disk to run. It is almost impossible (you will need to screw around very heavily with an XP Virtual Machine and even then that's doubtful). This begs the question 'How do I know when I can't even get it to launch' - if LegoRR.icd is 0kB size then it does not need the disk to run. If LegoRR.icd has a size that isn't 0, then welp you're out of luck - it needs the disk to run and Win10 does not like that at all.
- Now the troubleshooting begins. There are several things to do. The first step is to get LRR to run in Windowed Mode. To do this, create a shortcut to LegoRR.exe. Right-click your new shortcut and click on Properties, then Compatibility. Quite frankly, tick anything that looks interesting. The only reason we know so much is from endless screwing around in the vain hope the game will run - and sometimes it does. In particular, you want compatibility for XP SP2 (or however far back you can go, compatibility for Win98 would be ideal but I don't think that's supported....), admin (always helps), and most importantly' 16-bit colour.
- You also need d3drm.dll . For your convenience this is uploaded here. Put that straight into your LRR directory, right next to the executable. Oddly enough the .dll on LRR's disk does not work. No, for some funny reason you need Lego Island 1's d3drm.dll . Don't ask me why.
- Now the fun really begins, because from here it's all hit and miss, hence the screwing around. Your ideal result - sorry, the only result that works - is Direct 3D HAL in Windowed. Nothing else will work properly. Fullscreen will lag to bits and RGB Emulation will crash.
- It is known that LRR dislikes AMD cards. This is where screwing around comes into play. One user reported that doing stuff with CLGen.exe fixed their problem (specifically selecting the Voodoo option).
- If the game crashes after finishing loading a level, it's likely it's trying to load the in-game movies but can't. Download this file, unpack it, delete the existing LegoRR1.wad and LegoRR0.wad (this is why you made those backups, back in Step 1), and shove this in its place.
