The completionist bonus level is running around as Voldemort destroying London, that's all I need to say. On a serious note, LEGO Harry Potter, is probably one of the better Lego games, it's a great collect-a-thon and if you've played and enjoyed a lego game in the past you'll most likely enjoy this one.

This game brought back my childhood; and I can't decide which part I was more invested in as a kid. Harry Potter or LEGO? Or building Harry Potter with LEGO?
Doesn't matter though because the game combines both and that on PC.
Over ten years ago I started reading the Harry Potter books and I had been playing with LEGO already even before I could read. I used to beg my mother to take me to the movies to see HP and it was the one thing I was looking forward to the most all the years. I had folders at home with every little piece of information there was to collect in newspapers and magazines. I had posters all over the wall and watched the movies regularily. My friends and I even replayed some of the scenes in our garden. I went to the midnight release of HP6 in a bookstore when I was maybe 10 and there was a picture of me in the local town's newspaper since I actually dressed up.

I ♥♥♥♥ing cried after watching HP7.2 in the cinema because it felt as if I was losing part of myself (I was 15 be considerate). My childhood seemed to have reached its end with no more Harry Potter movies being in production.

And years later I found out about this game. For the love of god, I cannot properly describe my happiness.
Loosely keeping to the movies it still generates the general mood of the (earlier) ones. There are a lot of fun moments and it's even more enjoyable when you've got a friend over to play it with. It even includes the original soundtrack which just hits you right in your chest whenever a new piece starts.

For anyone having not yet played a LEGO game, you basically go through the chapters, sometimes being able to switch character, collecting LEGO money and shooting spells at everything you can point your wand at because, guess what, that gives you even more money. Later, when you replay a chapter, you can choose other people to play as who you unlock through the course of the game and who have different abilities and will let you enter new areas of the game.

If you like Harry Potter
or if you like LEGO
or even better
if you like both

Get this game, it's so damn worth it!

As far as LEGO games go, this game is definitely... well, a LEGO game.

What I mean by this is that if you have ever played a LEGO game in your life then you already know everything there is to know mechanically about this game. In my experience, LEGO games are not so much about ground breaking, innovative gameplay; but rather, immensely enjoyable fun for the whole family that comes in all kinds of assorted flavors. Personally, I find the Star Wars flavor to be the best out of all of them, but for the same reason that a die-hard LOTR fan would tell you that the Lord of the Rings LEGO Games are the best.

Overall, if you haven't ever played a LEGO game, then don't just buy the "latest and greatest". Buy a flavor you love, and I promise you won't be disappointed :)

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, combines the best of LEGO games, with the Harry Potter franchise to give you a fun title. Released in 2010, the game takes you though the first 4 books of the Harry Potter series; The Philosophers Stone(Sorcerer's Stone for US readers), the Chamber of Secrets, The Prisoner of Azkaban, and the Goblet of Fire. Several well known locations in the book series are available to visit in the game such as; Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron, Gringotts, Hogsmead, and more. Explore Hogwarts, visit various classrooms to learn new spells, and unlock hidden secrets as you progress through the story. You even get to play Quidditch, and fly on a broomstick, so LEGO Harry Potter does not disappoint.

You will explore the Harry Potter Universe, solve puzzles and more. I recommend playing with a controller on steam, as it seemed way more fun than with the keyboard and mouse. Even knowing the overall story arc, does not take away from the fun you can have playing Lego Harry Potter, so if you enjoy the lego games, and are a fan of the Harry Potter series, this game is a must have for your library. If you are new to lego games, I suggest finding a friend and playing with them, as you can 2-player co-op. An all around fun experience, I look forward to trying Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 as I've heard it is one of the best Lego games yet.

I have 100% completed this game, and I highly recommend it. Everybody is saying the keyboard controls dont work very good, but I only had trouble flying around on the broomstick. There is also the Year 3 Gargoyle glitch, but after a few tries, I fixed it (Send Hermione off screen from the gargoyle, make her put out crookshanks, quickly switch to harry, shoot it and switch back) I enjoyed myself throughout the majority of the game, it was slightly annoying re-doing some of the harder levels (Such as the swimming level ) But besides that, there are no complaints, and it unlocks a cool completion bonus. I am currently playing through years 5-7 and I am enjoying it. If you are a fan of Harry Potter and a fan of the Lego games, you should get this 9/10
