Very Good

Fun with Flaws

Lego Harry Potter is fun, just like all the other lego games. The drawback? TONS of glitches. Sure they fixed a few, like being stuck in the dragon dungeon, but after i beat the game, and went back to get all the extra stuff, I wasn't allowed in certain areas, or when i went in a room, the screen went back and my PS3 froze. I think they should have made a few more test runs of the game before releasing it to the public

Def Rent if your a potter/lego fan

What can i say about this game... its good fun and excitement, but if you have played any previous lego game and have hated it for its repetitive nature and what not than steer clear of this game. If you are a harry potter fan, def rent this game, it is very worth it. Missions and levels are a bit quick sadly but at least they outline exactly what you need to do. Very easy controls to adapt to and graphics are nice and crisp. I wish i could give it a higher rating but for some reason the game would freeze on me every once and a while. I played the game through and enjoyed everything it threw at me. The camera was really not an issue but one problem was that certain levels just gave you a new thing and sent you out there hoping you know what to do. I say just rent this thing and play the crud out of it... no harm in that here is the quick run down

Graphics: great graphics for a lego game, look nice and vibrant when they need to be

Sound: Harry potterverse music all over the place, but it fits perfect into everything you need since you are playing harry potter after all

Controls: Actually liked the controls, after using the broom the first time i felt like a pro, aiming system for the wand is nice since you just press it and it seems to shoot everything but what you want it to.

Replay value: if you are they type who loves to collect every little thing and secret than this game is exactly your looking for. Golden bricks, regular bricks, characters you name it, it all can be unlocked. If not play through it enjoy the ride because its fun.

Final Grade: I give this a B-, this game does a lot to make me love it but at times makes me hate it with how repetitive it gets. There is a lot of wit and play and overall a great rental, but that said will only be a rental. If you have kids they will love this, if not you will love this if you are a potter/lego fan. If you hated any of the past lego games, please don't think this will change anything. As always, Happy Gaming!

Excellent

Good Clean Fun

Lego Harry Potter is a great clean fun family game. It has the story mode, free play, bonus levels, ability to create your own levels. Unfortunately it only supports local coop and you cannot upload your levels online.

This just may be my experience with the game but it froze up and crashed the PS3 nearly ten times on single player between 90% and 98.5% completion. Back up your save file regularly in this case.
