Anyone who thinks that this game won't be very accurate is in for a surprisingly good time. Just because it is in the form of Lego's, that doesn't mean it will change the whole story of the final 4 movies in Harry Potter. If anything, it puts a unique spin on the series. The cutscenes are funny and there are so many unlockable goodies to search for. For instance, over 200 unlockable characters.
This game is definitely geared towards kids, but I enjoyed it despite my age. However, there are always a few minor annoyances in a game. One such annoyance in this one is the fact that it is easy to get lost within Hogwarts since there is no in-game map. But on the other hand, that also clearly shows that there is a large world to explore and this game gives you all the time in the world to discover everything.
So if you enjoy exploring large worlds, finding many unlockables, funny cutscenes, and the Harry Potter series in general, this is clearly a great game for you to try. It is all about having fun. And who doesn't enjoy that?

Everything learned from Hp Years 1-4 and Pirates has been incorporated. Game play is a lot more fun with characters acting more intuitively. The cut out art from Pirates is again used to bring emphasis to that which can not be messed. Game flows naturally from one location to another with the hub world being more interactive between missions including a rich (and nicely lit) Diagon Alley and streets of London. Give it a whirl!
