I absolutely love LEGO games! Harry Potter films are awesome! So i had to purchase HP1-4.

After playing a few hours I was hooked. The single player campaign is great, story sticks to the films and there are a few comedy moments in the cut scenes. The story takes a good 20 hours to do, but if you play “free play” you will get at least another 10hrs. Free play gives you the opportunity to collect the secrets you couldn’t find first time round, plus great replay value.

The gameplay is brilliant and multiplayer is just excellent. I had so much fun having my boy’s play as a secondary character helping me collect all the items I need to get the 100% completion. Great times

Recommend Highly

I'ma let you finish, but LEGO Harry Potter is one of the best games of all time. OF ALL TIME. This sounds hipster, but I liked Harry Potter before it was very popular. I went to go see J.K. Rowling speak in a tiny middle school gym, and she was the funniest, friendliest woman. It takes a special kind of person to be nice to a hundred yelling children in wizard costumes. For that alone, I'm willing to pay her some royalties by buying this game.

Outrageously cute & funny. I don't have kids and I'm glad, because I don't want to share this total guilty pleasure, and also because that sounds suspiciously like effort.

Pros:

* Amazingly fun & absorbing. Moves quickly enough to keep interest high, but has enough replayability and hidden items that you'll want to explore the grounds for days.
* Zero navigational difficulty. It's all very straightforward, and even when you're a little lost it works. They're new to the school, staircases change around, and Mrs. Norris is always there to
* Changes as the years progress. The NPCs do different things, the classrooms change, and there are distinct feels to each year.
* Child friendly. Fights are usually comical and there's zero gore. Cheats can be used from the get-go, which is nice for the younger audiences. Otherwise, you can earn dem cheats throughout the game as bonuses, which is also awesome.
* So much fun. Just so much fun. An incredible interpretation of one of the best series ever written.

Cons:

* No achievements, this may seem nitpicky but I worked hard for that 100% & I want to prove to every single person that I have invested no time in "life" or "meaningful relationships" or "personal hygiene".
* Crashes. I have a custom built PC and a high-end gaming top and both systems would crash. NEVER ALT-TAB. Don't keep other programs running while you're playing. Also, there is no cloud, so if you start a game on one computer, be ready to finish it on the same one.
* Your friends will see what you've been playing on Steam and mock you. Whatever. No names, but some of y'all bought CoD: Ghosts. Don't you be judgy.

So much fun! Relieve the first 4 Harry Potter movies with TellTale's brand of humor and lego. Tag team between Harry, Ron, and Hermoine to complete tasks, and solve puzzles. Interact with a host of characters from the first 4 movies. Lastly use your arsenal of spells to destroy and collect objects, and rescue other characters in peril. The Adventure awaits!

This is my first Lego game experience, and to be fair, I enjoyed the first 2 years.

And then I started Year 3, and things went to pot. Everything was running fine until the dreaded gargoyle glitch. After finally figuring out how to fix it (thanks to the steam forums), the game crashes every 10-15 minutes, and I have to restart the game. The only possibly way I can think of finishing the game is to rush through the levels so the autosave has a chance to save my progress before the next crash, which takes all the fun out the game.

Good game. Bad bugs.
