Having just 100% the game http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=767792259 I can strongly recommend this. The story is faithful and the humor is great, but the gameplay is what matters; right? This has the right ingredients for anyone who likes to replay missions and explore what you've missed. There is a ton of stuff to do around Hogwarts Castle and Diagon Alley.

Anyone who is a Harry Potter fan should buy this game. Even if you aren't a fan, there's plenty to do and fun to be had.

GET A CONTROLLER OR DON'T BOTHER.

I wanted that first in case it was the only thing you read. Yes, you basically need a controller to play this game. I played the first two years with just the keyboard and it was pretty much a nightmare. It's not impossible, but it is really annoying. I didn't realize how much work it was until I went and bought a controller, it became ten times easier instantly.

Also I feel as if this game was made by two different people. On the one hand a lot of the visuals and level designs are amazing. I almost cried when I first got to Hogwarts, or I glimpsed the Quidditch World Cup. But then at times the levels are just unnecessarily stupid. There is almost no help the entire game to explain to you how you are supposed to do things. 95% of the time this is fine because it is overall a pretty easy game and kind of obvious how you are supposed to play. But then some of the time the only way to complete an objective is so mind numbingly abstract that you sit at the end of a corridor for an hour trying to realize that the only way to defeat a book is to become invisible (???).

If you are a true Harry Potter fan this is pretty much a must buy even if just for getting to walk around Hogwarts. As a true dork I also loved figuring out which students were those barely mentioned characters such as Alicia Spinnett or Susan Bones. Of course true fans will also get frustrated with things like why Hermione tags along in the first task, or why Ron kind of sucks at flying a broom even though he's pretty good at it. But it's honestly worth any of the negatives to enjoy the positives.

I'm a huge potter fan but i strongly dont like this game

-Every level has only 1 way to be beat and its always a stupid puzzle that you have to figure out by walking in circles for 10 minutes just destroying everything and trying every spell

-TERRIBLE camera control

-No voice acting they are just humming and making noises

-only 4 buttons to use completely unplayable without a controller they made the 4 buttons for everything so it constantly screws up

Good game? Yes. Good port? No. I liked the game on the Wii, thought it'd be great to try it out on PC. Can't go into windowed mode, can't change keys, very hard to play. You have to have a controller to play effectively.

The only thing that works is the cutscene.

If you're on a keyboard you wont get anywhere.

This is one of the best entries in the lego series of games. Every room has TONS of things to interact with. The animations are done well for all the characters, or as the cool kids call them, minifigs. Attention to the smallest details is seen right from starting the game, from differences in how Harry and Hermione Granger walk, to how Ron freaks out when using his wand.

You can play as everyone from the movies, from Malfoy, to Ginny, and even the professors. All of Hogwarts is recreated from the big room they all sit in, to the dorms where they live. Lots of fun abilities, like turning back time, make the same world seem new again. There is ALOT of content in this Lego game, very impressive the level of detail. Not being a Harry Potter fan I had a great time playing the game, and oddly like the game better than the movies.

Rating: 10/10 Value: 49.99

This game has been fun but is full of bugs. If you know that going in you might enjoy the game. If you aren't okay with dealing with the bugs then you might want to avoid this one.

Released six years ago and still contains several obvious bugs, from graphical glitches to almost game-breaking ones such as the second game-controller disconnecting. From my experience this will happen every single game (sooner or later) and then you'll have to either restart the game or continue playing with the keyboard.

The game-play itself is mostly some strange reinvention of 90's adventure games' mechanics, where you have to explore the cartesian product <thing you have> X <things in the level>, trying to figure out which magic combination the developer intended for you to use this time.
