Well, I'm a huge fan of LEGO games: LEGO Hobbit, Marvel, The Movie, Star Wars: The Complete Saga and ( of course ) this game itself are all in my Steam library and this has been just as good as the others ( better, in some cases ). This game summed up a journey I had been on since I played LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 years ago in 2010 on my Nintendo Wii and I must say that this has been a great way to finally finish the adventure five years later!


The game goes through the last 3 Harry Potter books and the last four films. You get to play through 24 levels of magical mayhem, each story consisting of six levels a lesson or two and some free roaming in the open world. Fans of HP and his amazing adventures will be enthralled to see LEGO's comedic twists on the story and to discover references to both the books and the films, from obvious ones like locations and characters, to tiny ones like the objects characters will sometimes hold for a few seconds if you watch them closely ( e.g every minute or so Neville Longbottom will get out a plant, stroke it for a few seconds and then put it away, this is a reference to the Mimbulus Mimbletonia he owns in the Order Of The Pheonix book.


There is lots of magical gameplay to experience and 7 spells to unlock:

Wingardium Leviosa



Aquamenti ( yes I looked it up )

Focus ( The spell Snape uses to get inside Harry's mind in Order of the Pheonix )

Expecto Patronum


These spells allow characters to break special objects, levitate things, spray water, create objects out of red brick, light up areas and defeat all sorts of magical beings. There is also a brilliant feature where instead of an 8th spell, you get a special pet, animagus, or just object that that character possesses (e.g. Harry has his Invis Cloak, Hermione has Crookshanks the cat and Remus Lupin has the power to turn into a werewolf ). Another good feature to note is the fact that 5-7 has added duels. This allows you to fight against many characters by using spells you have collected. You must use these to shield yourself, or try to defeat your opponent. These duels are a key part of the 5-7 levels, so you'll have lots of time to prepare yourself for the grand finale: Harry vs Voldermort in Deathly Hallows pt. 2. Between levels you will be able to explore one, two or all three of the main hubs. The main hubs are as follows:

Hogwarts Castle


A small part of the countryside, used to represent Harry, Ron and Hermione's trek in Deathly Hallows Part 1

Each hub has lots to do and extras to collect, for instance, London does not only include the Muggle part, but also The Leaky Cauldron and both Diagon and Knockturn alley. The free roam world does alter depending on which of the four stories you are currently playing in:

Order Of The Pheonix is a sunny, safe environment with racy, peaceful and happy music.

Half Blood Prince has a darker environment and Death Eaters can attack you at moments in both the alleys and The Leaky Cauldron. It also has a slightly sadder tune in the background.

Deathly Hallows Part 1 has a rainy and very dark environment with lots of common Death Eater attacks in both the Muggle and Wizarding parts of London. Hogwarts is only able to explore via the Marauder's map and you have to play as Neville, Ginny or Seamus.

Deathly Hallows Part 2 has a dangerous environment before you defeat Voldermort, where Death Eaters attack in London, both the alleys and even Hogwarts. After you defeat Voldermort, the open world becomes safe and sunny with slightly sad music in the background.

For those who've played the Lego games, you will understand how to play. It is a bit of a challenge for kids to figure out as it's a problem solving kind of game. I love the uniqueness of the story lines in the Harry Potter series, as they try to not mimic the movies entirely, but create a totally new experience other than the basic plot. I reccommend for older kids and adult fans.

I had so much fun with this game! I recommend this for Harry Potter fans only - as you won't understand what's happening if you haven't read the books and seen the movies. The puzzles can get tricky. I got badly stuck quite a few times, but my solution was always the same - destroy EVERYTHING. Maybe this is common idea with LEGO games? I'm not sure, because this is my first. Either way, I immensely enjoyed the artistic style of the world, the somewhat open-world layout, and the hilarious LEGO retelling of the stories. If we had stars to give, I'd give it 5.

Played Lego HP 1-4, and now finished the story here.

The game really improves on year 1-4. Everything is better now. From more special abilities, to better menus.
After finishing the story, you have to re-visit everything with new characters to find all the hidden stuff!
I really wish more games could be like Lego games.

Marvelous gameplay, charming graphics, excellent attention to details... Simply PERFECT!
