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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
I must say I really like this game, when I was at work I couldn't wait to go back home to get farther in the game. I suspect it I will take me 6 hours to find everything in the game through the free play because after you beat it you have everyone you need to lock everything in another run through of the game. FYI as you play through the game the sections get longer and longer, some sections took me 20-30 minutes to get through near the end of the game, where the first couple of sections only took 5-10 minutes to get through.
- Don't try to go back before you beat the game, because a lot of key spells you need to do get items in the free play are learned in the last book. So it's pretty much a waste of time to go back before you beat the game.
- Don't worry about getting true wizard the first time through, because you will have to go back anyways to get other items and once you get some special red blocks near the end of the story play through it will be easy peasy to get true wizard.
- There are a couple of glitches in the game that you will have to quit the level you are on and restart which is another reason why I don't suggest true wizard or trying to get everything in the first/story play because you might have to restart the level, and when you are nearing the end of the game it is a total bummer because you have to replay really long levels to get back to where it glitches sometimes.Read more ›

This game was interesting to play. I love the lightness of the Lego games. No matter how serious the game is supposed to be, some Lego person's head pops off or something equally... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Cu's Reviews
