I was not suprised how this game came out. It lived up higher even than my expectations. I loved playing this game. The character varieties are tremendous. And i think they kept pretty good to the storyline in the books and movies as well as making them more humorus. They also have most of the great music from the movies.
There is so much to do even after you finish the gameplay movies. The graphics in this came are pretty good. You can have multiple weapons of choice with each character you play. The scenes and characters are well detailed. It is fun to explore the school of hogwarts there are many different rooms. I was so surprised to see how much there was to do at hogwarts. How much space there was to roam free with your character.
Overall this is a great game. This game has improved a bit compared to the other lego games. I would say buy it if you are a big lego fan. This game is pretty hard to give back. There are pretty much no regrets to buying it. But still if you are not all that familiar with the lego games i would suggest rent it first.
My 4,6, and 8 year old and I played this game for three days straight until we finished all the levels, now we keep going back and getting all the extra stuff you can do and we have only completed 50% of the things. I'm not a gamer but I enjoy playing it as much as they do. Those who are not playing enjoy watching it so much they don't even complain about when it will be their turn.
Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is a great game! You have to get cards that have someone on it and then you buy them in Diagon Alley. You can travel through Hogwarts and fly a broom, go to that garden room, go to Albus Dumbledore's room, Snape's room, Mad-eye Moody's room, travel under Hogwarts, Professer Lupin's room, the cafateria, to Hagrid's Hut and under a tent. There is even more but it would take to long to think about. You can go to Diagon Alley and buy wand upgrades. There is red bricks in this game but only at Hogwarts School. You can buy them at Diagon Alley. You can buy gold bricks at the same store as well. There is that bank with goblins in it there is ten tasks. You collect gold bricks every time you win a level. After you win the level, you can build a level. I would do this after you unlock most of the characters. After I got a bad wizard I did all the levels over again because bad guys can break a black treasure chest and a black cabinet. You should do that. That's the end
