From the moment I put the disk in the drive I could not stop smiling. This is a game that every Harry Potter fan with a game console should have.
To start things off, a music score straight from the movies. Being the huge HP geek that I am, I have all the movie soundtracks and think that music plays an important role in what made the movies successful. I was happy to hear the familiar themes from the movies connected with their video game scenes.
Next thing that impressed me was the environment. It may be LEGOs but it certainly makes you feel like you’re at Hogwarts.
As for gameplay, it’s relatively similar to other LEGO games. Move through Harry’s school years learning spells and potions while collecting studs and saving students from peril. Different charters will have different abilities to help you through this wizarding world.
Overall if you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’ll love this game. It may be aimed for kids but that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun. It’s a funny new look on your favorite books/movies.
