2.0 out of 5 stars Buggy version and not correctly advertized July 5, 2010
By Nobody
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm trying to divide my review into two parts: 1) The game. 2) The bugs.

1) The game. The game is an innovative take on the standard Lego game engine (which I have been used to from the Star Wars versions), with a much more fluid game interface and transition giving it a stronger feel of a cohesive world. I'm not that familiar with the Harry Potter story, but my son (the game player) finds that it fits right in with the story line. I did notice that the Lego tradition of no dialog (only grunting) in the video transitions completely breaks down. If you don't know the movies (or at least the book) they make no sense. It took my son over 8 hours to play the game through to the end (just to get to the levels, not to do the free play). Overall it is a fun game for those who like Harry Potter and the general Lego take on these things in its games. Just on that basis I would give it a 4 star rating.

2) The bugs. Their technical support tells me that Windows 7 is not supported. I have a laptop with Windows 7 and better graphics which would crash. There were two types of crashes. Random crashes that just didn't repeat if you replayed the level, and then there were two specific points in the game which crashed 100% of the time. I was able to get around those crashes by lowering the graphics setting in one place, and raising it back up in the other. I moved it to an older Vista machine, and it works (it crashes on exit, but who cares?). That older Vista machine has a lousy graphics card and to the credit of the game makers, they adjust the graphics down to compensate, so the game works fine.

Best (and simplest) LEGO game yet and suitable for all ages.

Excellent tech support (and you most likely will need it). Be sure your machine WELL EXCEEDS the basic hardware requirements required for the game to function properly. I would even recommend that it surpasses recommended hardware specs for a trouble-free gaming experience as this game makes some serious demands on your system if run with all options enabled.

I had many issues and challenges with this game the first weeks after release but have since resolved all challenges I faced both with TT Games support and through personal trial and error. Now it's back to fun and am looking to complete it this weekend.

Incidentally, I am running this on Windows 7 32-bit with 4 GB of RAM on an Intel Dual-Core 1.86 GHz machine. Just make sure that you have a VERY good video card with sufficient power to run this game. Some of the later levels are very graphics intensive and will bog your machine down to crash mode if you do not have sufficient resources.

Playing LEGO Harry Potter for the PC has been an exercise in fun sprinkled with a few bouts of frustration.

First off, the gameplay is just about flawless but I do have a nitpick or two:


- If you can think of any character in the Harry Potter Universe, you can pretty much play as that character in the LEGO Game. My wife was especially excited when she realized she could play as a plasticised version of Robert Pattinson (He's SOOO DREAMY!! Could LEGO Twilight be next?!).
- One of the bonus extras that shows up early in the game prevents characters from constantly falling to their doom, which was a *huge* problem with previous games. Sure, it's a 3D game, but it's also on a 2D screen and thus the lack of depth perception makes the location of some objects difficult to figure out in relation to other objects. Perhaps this isn't an issue if you have a 3D screen?
- While playing with two players, the screen "splits" in order to allow individuals to explore without needing their companion to tag along. It's a weird effect that does take some time to get used to, but it makes 2-player multitasking so much easier and much more fun.
- The idea of having the characters use the Wingardium Leviosa spell to build objects is genius and extremely fun to watch.
- Like the other LEGO games, the surprises, creativity, and slightly dark humor put into the game are just a joy to behold. It must be a lot of fun working for Traveler's Tales!
- Music from the scores for the first four films -- including Patrick Doyle's -- is a nice touch.
- The game is huge! My wife and I are spending a lot more time getting to the 100% level than other LEGO games.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Shame August 9, 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's a shame this game is so buggy. You can tell the developers put a lot of love into it, and it's truly the best Potter game that's come out. The bugs aren't impossible to work around, but there's no way to play through and not get frustrated by them. (I will describe how I got around them at the end of the review.)

The games EA made based on the Harry Potter series were simplistic, and while running around Hogwarts was fun, I could never help but feel like EA tried to shoehorn the magical world into a cliched gaming shell, filled with platform jumping and shooting generic enemies. This game isn't like that. There are humorous and clever touches throughout; the cut scenes always poke fun at the films, and Hogwarts itself comes to life in the details. During Harry's second year, for example, you'll see Colin Creevey in the halls snapping pictures with his camera; during his fourth, you'll run into Rita Skeeter and numerous Beauxbatons and Durmstrangs. They're not pointed out. They're just there, as nods to the fans.

I also think the Lego building dimension adds a lot to the game. While you'll be using the same spells over and over again (particularly Wingardium Leviosa), it's fun to see what the developers have come up with each time you get to hitting the buttons. You'll ride a flying pumpkin, watch dancing skeletons, and build a giant mouse trap to catch Peter Pettigrew. Character tokens and red bricks are fun to find, too, because they add something to gameplay instead of being things to collect for the sake of collecting. The various potions are clever as well.

There was, however, a point where I got fatigued of smashing things over and over again for studs.
