Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4

It’s Lego time again, this time with Harry Potter. It seems so obvious that Harry Potter would make a great subject for a Lego game. The Lego game engine lends itself to magic as easily as it did to The Force in the Star Wars games. This game follows the story of the first four Harry Potter books. Building on the previous games with tons of spells, potion making, split screen co-op and a player controlled ‘Lego building’  mode.

Name: Max

Age: 8

What did you like about Lego Harry Potter?

Max: I liked casting the spells and riding on things such as the sweeping machine. I liked pretty much all of  the game I have played so far.

Who was your favourite character?

Max: I really like Ron Weasley, he looks funny and using Scabbers, his rat, to run in pipes is cool.

What was the best bit about the game?

Max: The whole game is good, so far it has all been as good as the rest.

What was the worst bit about the game?

Max: There really isn’t a worst bit, there is nothing bad about the game.

How much fun was this game?

Max: It’s fun times three! I’m really looking forward to playing the Goblet of Fire part.

Parents comments: Lego Harry Potter is a great game and, although Max didn’t comment on it, the graphics are really top notch. The dynamic lighting and funny animated and interactive backgrounds make watching him explore the castle a pleasure. Max got stuck a few times but the solutions were easily found with a little help. The automatic splitscreen during co-op play means the players are not bound to each other, leaving a helpful parent free to solve a puzzle while your child smashes the room up!
