Much to my dismay, I found this game very difficult to follow. And I hated that I couldn't skip through the 'movie' portions. They were a waste of time and kept me from playing the game. So much promise, such a disappointment.
When I heard they were coming out with lego harry potter I was like that should be fun like star wars lego but it's not. So far I haven't found a better lego game then star wars even lego batman isn't all that fun. I'm not to crazy about the movies but I though it would be cool to play lego harry potter but when I rented it and went to play it I was like OH I'm definatly not going to buy this game it's just so boring. Even my nephew who's a hard gamer more then I am said so and he like star war legos and he's more into battle games. All I have to say is if you want to you can try it but to me it was really boring and not a game worth it to own but that's just my opinion. Some people proably do like it but I sure didn't. It was hard I know that makes a game challenging but come on it didn't have to be as hard as it was. Guess that's why Star Wars Lego's will always be #1 to me as far as lego games go.
I was hoping to love this game as the past few Lego games were lacking and were just more of the same. Sadly as with the last few, this one fell very short as usual. The only Lego game worth playing in my opinion is Star Wars.
The controls are still wonky and awkward, the views are horrible as usual, and there in nothing exciting in this game at all to speak of. I honestly wouldn't mind just watching the whole movie series in Lego cut scenes as they are funny without any dialogue which is impressive, but the rest I can do without.
Skip this one (as well as the past few Lego games) and move on so the creators learn to end it here!
