Very Good

LEGO Harry Potter as good as the books/movies?

First it was Star Wars, then Batman, then Indiana Jones.
Now Harry Potter gets the Lego treatment in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4.
This game plays out very much like the other LEGO games. Your character gets special abilities in the form of spells and small creatures that you use to blast things to pieces, put together LEGOs to make things, and solve puzzles at the same time.
There are four episodes in this game, and they somewhat follow the first four books of the franchise. But the cut scenes take the material more lightly and with more humor than the books do. The humor for the most part is on target, and it’s one of the best parts of this (and any other LEGO) game.
The layout of the game is complex: there’s a whole lot for you to explore, and if you get lost, there’s a ghost guy that will guide you back onto the main path and onto the next level.
But, some of the puzzles can get tough, and if you want to get all the secrets and all the golden blocks (there are 200 of them), you will most likely have to buy the strategy guide. A standard run through of all four levels took me about 10 hours, which is a lot given the lack of depth of other action/ adventure games.
When you get through the game, you have the option of playing any level with any unlocked character to get more goodies.
You can also take on one of 10 bonus levels.
And you can create your own levels with the level editor.
This is another in a long line of LEGO hits, and it makes me wonder who’s next to be (for lack of a better word) Legoized. But Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 will keep me satisfied until then. BUY IT.

The game is amazing. If you are into lego games and harry potter or any adventure games you would love it. in the real games of harry potter you learn only like 10- 20 spells if that but in this game you learn a lot more. The potion glass has definitely improved and even though professor snape is teaching it is still fun. so rent it and have a good time playing
