Review: LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4

Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 I recently purchased LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and spent more than a few hours playing it. I really love the LEGO games and have been playing them for years now. This game follows along well with the story of Harry Potter and gives you all the nifty LEGO characteristics you have come to expect from their games.

As you work your way through the game, you get to learn new spells and make potions. Once you have learned a spell, you get to use it throughout the game. You get to play different characters during the game. You can be Harry or Hermione or Ron or Hagrid (you get the idea). Most of the characters have something that is unique to them that helps you in different places within the game. These unique abilities stay pretty true to the characters as you already know them.

Looking at the game title you would think that it is a kids game. And it is true that kids can play these games without too much frustration. It is also true that the games are challenging enough for the adult player. I wouldn’t say that these games are for the hard core gamer, but they are definitely worth playing for most game playing levels.

I haven’t had a ton of time to play this since I bought it, but I did make it all the way through the first year’s story. Once I make it through the entire game, I will go back in the free play mode and collect all the extra stuff I couldn’t grab on my through the first time. This is one of the best parts of the LEGO games. You play it once for the story and then play it again to get all the good stuff and find all the hidden items. Its like a treasure hunt – so much fun!
