Wait until they release a patch,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
This game is a lot of fun to play and by far my favorite Lego game of the series, and I've played quite a few. However, I would wait until they have released a update/patch for the game as there are some major glitches.
The worst one in my opinion happens if you quit a level the first time playing it. If you get stuck in a level and want to retry or if you experience another glitch in a level and quit the level the game will then continue on in the story mode and skip the level altogether. The level doesn't even show up on the storyboard with the other levels that you can replay, it's just gone. So to complete the game you need to start over completely.
To me this makes the game unplayable right now as I don't want to restart and this is not the only glitch in the game.
Again, this is an awesome game, but if you're considering buying it, you should wait until they release a patch to fix the issues.

Funny, I didn't come across this glitch ....
It doesn't play like Lego Star Wars or Indy, but I thought about it and decided the way this game is organized is right for these sets of stories. In my opinion, Harry Potter is harder (maybe because it's different?) than SW or Indy.

Can you comment further on Lego Star Wars Complete Saga vs. Lego Harry Potter yrs 1-4?
We've only played Star Wars (and chose that one because reviews at the time said it was the suggested Lego game if you hadn't played any yet). After completing most of the Star Wars game, we stopped playing it. I was wondering if this would be "boring" because it's the exact same thing (smash stuff, move stuff, collect coins), or if it would be worth it for the new 'flavor.' Also, a lot more Lego games have been added since those reviews I read, so I'm wondering which you might suggest as the "2nd best." You say it's harder or more different - that seems promising. Thanks.
