Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been waiting for this game to come out for what seems like forever. I'm a huge Harry Potter addict and I've also enjoyed some of the different Lego video games. I had some quality issues with the other Lego games (like Batman "falling" into the side of a building and crashing my game)but overall felt I more than got my money's worth in terms of play value.

So how's Harry? Well. OK. If I was 6 I might say pretty good. I wish I could say "Stupdendous!" but, alas, I cannot. I'm playing this game concurrently with my kids playing the Wii version and boy is there a big difference. Not a direct port, feels more stripped down than any other Lego DS game to me.

Graphically, of course, this is the DS. However I'm a tad bit disappointed with the boxy pixelated graphics that we got. Maybe this is all we can get but I've seen some other games that have really pushed the DS limits. Lego HP does not. It's just boxy all around in terms of the cut scenes. The humor is still there but there are times you cannot really see it through the graphics. The ingame graphics are pretty good - the colors appear muted at times (especially compared to watching the Wii version) but overall mostly satisfy.

Game play wise it is like most of the other Lego games. Run around collecting studs and blast everything in sight. However you do not jump on things or push things like you do in the other games unless it specifically sets up for you to do so and then you are told and shown what to do. So the free exploration of the levels is very stripped down from previous Lego games. There are also some control issues. First I do have to say that the touch screen blue sparklies at the end of the wand are cool. Nice touch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Lego Game yet July 3, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, I have Star Wars Lego (the one that has all 6 movies) and both of the Indiana Jones Legos. I think Harry Potter Lego is the best one yet, despite a few of the other reviews left by people. Some say it's mainly for kids, and don't find it challenging enough, but the DS is focused more around children, so of course they're going to make it that way.

With that said, I love how you use the stylus throughout the entire game to cast spells. Some people get completely irritated when you cannot use the stylus, so if you're one of those people, then you would probably love this game. There are tons of spells you learn throughout all four years: Accio, Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa, and much more. Basically each year has you're learning more spells to unlock and do more things, although a majority of the spells are in the first year.

As for someone mentioning that the graphics were not as great, that everything looked more boxy, well, it's lego! Of course it's going to look boxy. They're squares! I honestly think the graphics were amazing. I loved how instead of just going through one important event in the game, you also had quests included as well. The other Lego games didn't do that. Sure, you had to unlock certain areas before you could move forward, but this one had quests too, which added to the game play. Going through one part of the movie was boring after awhile in the old ones.

A few basics of the game include going through different parts of each movie. For each part you have to go through story mode first, then you unlock free play mode. The more characters you find by collecting chocolate frog cards, the more you can purchase and use for the game, especially the making your own character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving it more every day July 2, 2010
By Chris
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Like others, I have been waiting for this game to be released since last year. We have a Wii but my main platform choice is DS.

I have to say this Lego game is pretty good now that I have played it for a few days. My only real complaint is that unlike the previous Lego DS games you CANNOT use the buttons on the right to perform any of the spells like you could in the Lego Star Wars and Indiana Jones games to perform stunts, punch, etc. For this game you must use the stylus because of how the "spells" are performed. I found it a little annoying at first, but now it seems completely natural.

And since you need the stylus out to do any of the spells you find it is easier to "guide" Harry or whoever around the game instead of using the directional keys to walk your character around like in the previous games. I can see this being where the dizzy feeling can occur until you get used it.

I also agree about the sensitivity in using the stylus and either changing characters or doing the spinning stun thing in error time after time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy the Console Version Instead! July 12, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I am currently playing the PS3 version of "Lego Harry Potter" and having a great time with it; I also bought the DS version because I assumed that, like previous Lego titles, it would be basically the same game.

It's really, really not. Of course, the graphics aren't as good, but I expected that. My problem is that the game has been totally dumbed down. The game tells you what to do, rather than making you figure it out yourself. There's really nothing to do except run around and collect studs, and that gets boring fast. Also, the controls are almost completely stylus-based: some people may like that, but I don't.

If you have an XBox 360, Wii or PS3, buy that version. If not, I'd just skip this title altogether.
