A Bit Disappointing
on May 16, 2011
Speaking as someone who has both Indiana Jones Lego Games, the Star Wars Lego with all 6 films, plus the Star Wars Clone Wars Lego, and Harry Potter Lego, this game was definitely a bit disappointing. First of all, the graphics are not as high of quality as the other games, especially in the little clips between each level. They're blurry and pixelated, which is not at all up to standards.
The concept of the game is about the same as the others. Go through each level collecting the various items, knuts, etc. in order to get to 100% and purchase characters and red legos. The levels are actually a lot shorter than in the other games, and hardly seem to take up any time at all. This is a bit disappointing, and yes, makes it easier to save the game if you have to do something else, but the other ones have much longer levels, especially since there are only 4 levels per movie in this game.
Another huge disappointment had to be the lack of minigames. Most of the lego games have mini games you can play outside of the levels, and so far I have yet to discover any of them. This is a huge disappointment to me because I actually love the mini games. It's like you get two games for the price of one because you can play the main levels and then play smaller games too. As far as I can tell, this game has none, which is hugely disappointing.
I think this game could have been amazing, but instead they rushed to put something together with the new movie coming out, and yes, the new movie is included in the game as well. If you like the other lego games, you will probably like this one, at least to play and have something decent to do. In my opinion, Harry Potter lego is still the best because the graphics are decent, you use the stylus to conduct spells, and in this one, you don't even need the stylus at all, kind of defeating the whole purpose of it being a Nintendo DS game.
