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.
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 have played all of the Lego games of this styling to date. This one is the one I like that best.
The one thing that I think has imporved the game, is on each level if there is a red brick, hat, or character card available on the top screen with the map there is a tracker showing what is left to be found.
I didn't like the game at all the first few levels. I'm used to Lego Batman, Star Wars, etc that you can jump smash and break everything that is Lego made....... nope. You start to have more control of that the future you get. You learn more "spells" and it's easier once you get your wand. The story/plot stuck with the movie pretty well (as much as can be expected in a video game). I was going to send it back the first night but decided to just keep playing. I finished over the weekend and glad I did. Like other reviews say, it's not much fun once you beat the levels. My major complaint about the game is that there isn't a button to work the wand, you have to use the stylist. I understand it's a DS, it's touch screen, that's awesome... but I hate walking the characters around with the stylist. Overall, not bad... better than it started off....Compared to the PS3 version.... PS3 Lego Harry Potter is MUCH better.
