This review is from: LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I received this game for my birthday a couple of weeks ago and have done little else in my free time than play it. It is really fun and very addicting. I have not played any of the other Lego games, but I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books and movies. I think that the game does a great job of immersing you into the wizarding world. You get to wander around Hogwarts and Diagon Alley. You get to learn and use spells. You can (eventually) play as almost any character from the series. Also great are the movie shorts at key moments in the game where the story is reenacted with the Lego characters. Cute and funny! Since I am not a seasoned gamer, it is also nice that you cannot really "die." If you walk off an edge or get stunned by an enemy too many times you simply "fall apart," lose some studs and come right back, as many times as it takes to get through the level. Cool bonus levels and a building mode where you can create your own playable scenes. It's easy enough for my 5 year old to play, but complicated enough for my and my husband. I love it!!
