Ok so I rented this for the easy achievements, but it actually ended up being a great game! The story has some funny parts, and the collectibles were a bit tedious, but well worth it, because they were fun to collect. I almost didn't want to send it back after I beat it to 100%. This is a MUST RENT or at least BUY

One of the Better LEGO Games

LEGO Harry Potter is definitely one of the higher tier LEGO Games. I like it better than the Batman or Indiana Jones ones, but not more than the Star Wars ones. There is quite a lot of content available, however unfortunately because of how much IS available it occasionally drags on.

I think if I hadn't played LEGO Star Wars III: Clone Wars a few months prior to this, I'd rate it higher. But unfortunately so far Clone Wars is the best one to date and thus, throughout playing Harry Potter I was constantly thinking "If only it had this new feature Clone Wars introduced..." Who knows, maybe Harry Potter 5-7, with the new engine, will wow me more than this one did.

That's not to say this is a bad, or even mediocre game. It was a lot of fun. Like the other LEGO games before (and after) it, Harry Potter's scenes reconstructed (lame pun totally intended) in LEGO form are all very humorous, and the world and atmosphere created in the levels are all fantastic. The gameplay is just as fun as always.

I definitely recommend this game to anyone who wants to have fun with a friend, or a parent looking for quality, legitimately fun gaming they can share with their kids that won't treat them like they're stupid (I'm looking at you movie tie-ins), or gamers just looking to boost their achievement score with a VERY easy 1000 points.
