Having played older LEGO games on consoles, it was very nice to be able to play in true HD (1920x1200 in my case) instead of 720p or lower. The benefits of a decent machine w/good hard drive etc.. are very fast load times and better graphics. I have not tried the keyboard support, but game works fine with an xbox 360 controller. The game also has local and multiplayer co-op which are nice pluses.
This game is the start of a new trend to streamline LEGO games and make them more cinematic. What this means is that the puzzles are still there, but less intentionally obtuse and won't have you running around scratching your head trying to figure out what you're supposed to do next. They're still there, they're just better integrated to flow with the storyline better instead of slow you down. Everything is intended to move you along quickly. There are plenty of cut scenes, which are stock full of typical LEGO humor. It manages to keep the feel very well that you're both playing a game and watching the movies (especially if you know the movies well already).
I was able to play through the whole game without any bugs or glitches (good thing since PC versions of games don't necessarily get the same care as their console counterparts).
Some things that could be construed as negatives, but that I didn't mind:
*Hogwarts is the same as Years 1-4.Read more ›
As before, the game is beautifully designed, and someone put a lot of thought into the little humorous touches that will keep little ones entertained even without being too scarred by the often extremely dark final chapters. For instance, when certain beloved characters die, the scenes are always really both funny and poignant (For instance, with one much-loved character memorably disappearing without his legs, then reappearing with an embarrassed grin to get help popping his legs back on... THEN he dies AGAIN only with a wink... you had to be there...)
The real genius as always in LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is the replay value, especially when you are able to add Dark characters (and "Key" characters) to your arsenal of characters, so that you can then go back and access entirely new areas or prizes. The earliest Dark character I added was Bellatrix (who becomes accessible in Year 7 down near Hagrid's Hut, or by default very very late in Book 7). Each main character offers a unique talent combination -- Ron has the special De-Illuminator, Hermione has her endless Bag, Luna has the Spectre-specs (which are accessible to all eventually), Harry has his Cape, and Arthur Weasley, meanwhile, can fix any magical ordinary object emitting blue sparks with his blue wrench, which is really funny and true to character.
And let me tell you, replaying several scenes with the hilarious and permanently sneering (or shivering) Bellatrix is so funny and worthwhile. She's always startling at something that isn't there (hellooo, she's crazy!), yowling, smirking, or grinning, and it's really funny.Read more ›
But I have some notes about it:
1- The storey line is more like the movies not the real novel which is abridged in a different way
2- The control Keys keeps re-setting whenever you restart the game, It's not cool to spend the first 5 to 10 minutes costomizing your control keys, and remembering what have you assigned the last time.
3- I'm not sure about the game, (I did not finish it yet so it might be an option at the end), but aren't we supposed to be able to use the charachters we unlocked while playing?? the characters toggle keys don't work. Lots of stuff that are unlocked don't seem to be usable at the moment!! is that normal, I spent lots of lego points buying things spells and charcters but don't seem available while playing
