Interesting New Take On Harry Potter

Lego Harry Potter takes an interesting view on the HP book/movie series. It's very interactive and the magic is great. Using your stylus as a wand, you can cast spells like a real witch/wizard. I have truly enjoyed the game and would recommend it to any Harry Potter fan, young and old. The only disappointment I have is that it doesn't really follow the regular storyline of Harry Potter. There are many missing gaps and new things that never happened in the books or movies. However, I understand that there are certain things you can't really translate from a book or movie into a video game. I give this a 8 out of 10! A must play for ALL Harry Potter fans or just magic fans in general.

Great but kind of boring when the levels are done

I got this game and couldn't stop playing it. I play for like 5 hours straight. It's cool how you can go to classes and learn spells and stuff. But when I purchased X2 from the room of requirement I realized you can't turn it off. I thought it was great and that it wouldn't matter.
But I got everything too fast and before I knew I was done and the game was BORING. So #1 if you have the game DON'T GET X2!!!!!!!
And #2 think about getting the game. But if you do you'll love it. But I thought the DS system just got ripped off by Travelers Tales again.

I enjoy Lego Batman and Lego Indiana Jones and keep playing them even after a first run-through. Potter follows a similar format, and fairly faithfully follows the action in the movies.

But something about the Lego Harry Potter game seems rough and unfinished. In the other games, you can go "true" on the story and free play, but in HP, you can only go "true wizard" on story play.

I haven't really figured out what determines if characters will be unlocked. It doesn't seem related to true wizard status or number of hats.

Overall, the game's amusing enough. But I won't be buying this one.
