Great game once you get past the workarounds and hardware requirements,
This review is from: LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 - PC (Video Game)
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.

WB Support suggested that I update my video card driver. Earlier, I had tried to get my money back from Wal-Mart, but they said I could only do an exchange, so I went ahead and exchanged it. I uninstalled the previous and loaded the new disk with the update driver. Everything seemed okay but in Year One I was just hitting a snake with my wand and the game froze then escaped and it said that an error had occurred and it needed to shut down. I went back in and played a few more hours fine, but this shouldn't be happening. I haven't got back to Year Three yet...if it does the same thing I'm quitting everything. I have other things to do with my time. I never had one problem with Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or Batman. TT needs to seriously look at how they make, handle, burn PC versions of their games. Something obviously happened and it needs to be investigated because if this is years 1-4, then we can assume that they'll come out with years 4-8 (being that Deathly Hallows is split now). Are we going to go through this again? Are PC games doomed?

LEGO Batman definitely supports my Logitech Dual Action right out of the box.
