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

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!

Charming, quietly hilarious, and entertaining for hours on end, LEGO Harry Potter beautifully captures Years 1-4 with great creativity and the added bonus of being able to play via multiplayer. Fans of the books, and films, will definitely love re-exploring Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, Leaky Cauldron and completing chapters to unlock their favourite characters is both a challenge and a nostalgic homecoming to a great series.

Lots of fun - there's substantial enough story time with plenty to go back and play once you start unlocking spells and characters. Works great with the xBox One controller on Windows 8.1. There is a crash in Year 3, near the gargoyles, that I was able to get through by following the advice on the Steam forum for the game (http://steamcommunity.com/app/21130/discussions/0/616188677678497304/).

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.

Pros
- Landscape is quite huge with a lot of mysteries to be discovered
- Follows the original story pretty damn well
- Great functions such as local co-op but can also be played as a solo game
- Feels like you embarked on a magical adventure

Cons
- Got a local co-op bug. Unable to resume game when 2nd player pauses it. Have to exit the game and restart
- No voice-over. Only muffled sounds and cut scenes which made it hard to figure out the story if you are not familiar with the storyline
- Game allows free roaming. However, they do not have voice over so half the time I'm trying to figure out what to do next
- Some items which you discover are meant for later stages in the game. There's no inventory so you have to leave the items for the time being (yet there isn't a voice-over to tell you that! so you might be walking around the room wondering what you missed)

Overall, a pretty decent lego game for harry potter fans.

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.

Like all LEGO games it's a very fun game for all ages and like the other lego games the plot pretty much follows the movies/books with added satirical comedy. Definitely worth a buy when they're on sale, along with the second instalment (Years 5-7)

I had a few bugs when I played it but they're easily fixed (check online for them, the fixes are there it's just the company that makes the game won't go back and fix it)

One small issue in year 3, otherwise a flawless game (Crashes at a certain point in a mission, won't spoil which one)

9/10

Lego Harry Potter takes the harry potter films and adds a humorous twist to the established universe.

The main type of game play involves going through different parts of the film's stories and solving puzzles. Given the audience this is aimed at, none of the game is particularly hard, it's more about the fun behind the play. It's worth noting that while this game supports single players, you may be better off with using the standard two-player mode.
If you've played another lego film game, then this is in the same vein.

There is no voice acting here, but the game does use the harry potter soundtrack.

The graphics are fairly good in this game, with a mix of standard 3D game worlds interspersed with lego environments, all of which are destructible.

I did encounter several crashes while playing this game, and this coupled with the very infrequent save poinyts makes for a very annoying experience. I narrowed this down to my laptop's power saving mode, which lends me to beleive that if your cpu is not being underclocked [as a powersaving measure] you should be fine.

This game is worth a buy if you like previou lego games of the harry potter movies. If you're not a fan of those, then you should probably stay away from this.

I got this originally for my son to play as he is a huge lego and harry potter fan. However I have notched up a fair bit if game time on this now and can say it is money well spent. I run it on Windows 8.1 with an xbox 360 controller and have no experienced any crashes or controller drop outs etc that other people have mentioned. My kids have played it two player and I can assure you any crashes or problems I would have heard about it! It plays brilliantly with great graphics and a comical side to it as you would expect from both the HP and Lego series. The characters are charming and the story line has been tweeked here and there to fit in with the game but fans will recognise the story and all the scenery.

I admit I did buy this when it was on sale but even at £9.99 to be honest I can not fault it. Brilliant fun game that you can end up spending hours on - I mean that the kids can spend hours on :D

If you are thinking whether to spend your money on buying the next installment as well (years 5-7) then I can also recommend that too.

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 is the most accurate Harry Potter game ever made. It has even secondary characters from the book that even if you're a big fan you might not remember their names, but they are there, and all of them are playable! The game has lots of places to visit and explore and even when you finish it, there's a lot of secrets to unlock. The gameplay is very easy, relaxing and addicting. The soundtrack is the same from the movies which makes the scenarios even more immersive because you instantly remember about the movie scenes when you listen to them. It's a "must have" for every Harry Potter fan.
