Harry Potter Years 1-4 is my favorite Lego game. I really enjoyed playing the entire game using the stylus. That being said, why they didn't stay with a good thing for this 2nd Harry Potter, I can't figure it out. This Harry Potter Years 5-7 has poor graphics and what little touch screen that is used is kinda confusing. I'm somewhat disappointed and don't even feel like finishing the game. It's probably an okay game, lack-luster compared to the first Harry Potter.

It's not THAT bad, but it does take some getting accustomed to. Compared to HP Years 1-4 for the DS, it is VERY different. The controls are completely different (instead of using the stylus for spells like you did in HP years 1-4, you select the spell you want to use on the touch screen and then cast the spell using the Y button), and you rarely use the stylus. There are new characters to play with and they introduced a dueling mode (which can be annoying, but it's not too bad).

If you expected this game to be just like HP Years 1-4, then yes, you will be disappointed. I admit that I was sorely disappointed at first. However, the longer I played the game, the more I got accustomed to it and I actually started to like it. However, I don't like it nearly as much as HP Years 1-4 for several reasons:

*Controls can be difficult to use, especially when switching between characters/spells
*Graphics during the "movie" scenes leave a lot to be desired
*When flying on the broomstick, it is nearly impossible to see where your character is going
*Some dueling battles feel excessively drawn out and it is almost impossible to defeat the other character
*Some levels (Gringott's Break In, Great Hall when Fred/George are leaving Hogwarts, etc.) need more directions so that you actually know what to do. I shouldn't have to run a Google search to figure out how to defeat a level...

Overall, I give this game 3 stars. I don't like how it was such a drastic change from HP Years 1-4, but as stated earlier: once I got accustomed to it, it wasn't too bad.

There are so many things I dislike about this game. The images are really poor quality. I dislike having to use the buttons for everything, I very much like using the stylus. I also have HP Lego 5-7 for the Wii and while I haven't played that much some of it is exactly the same as the DS game. This was not the case with the 1-4 games for DS and Wii, they were two totally different games. I am pretty disappointed because the HP Lego 1-4 is by far my favorite DS game, it wasn't too easy or too hard and it had a lot of content. This is just a disappointment overall.

Let me start by saying that I loved Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4. Using the stylus like a wand was genius. My 3-1/2 year old daughter saw me playing one day and wanted to play too, and she ultimately took over and played through the entire game with very little help from me. (Not to say that the game was so overly simple that a three-year-old could play it; just that the controls were very intuitive and fun for all ages, including a very smart 3 year-old.) We conveniently finished the main storyline of years 1-4 just a week before years 5-7 was released. The day it came out, we bought it, excited to continue our Lego Harry Potter adventure together. I thought the sequal would be similar in play to the first. I was very, very wrong.

I was/am *massively* disappointed in the sequal. Here's just a few things that are wrong with this game:

1) There's pretty much NO stylus use in this game. (I must have wasted 5 minutes trying to cast my first spell with the stylus, as you did in the first game, before I figured out the hold-charge-release button technique required to cast spells.) There is no fun in casting spells in this game. Just push and hold a button and the computer does the rest. BORING. And I'm very sad to say I don't think my daughter will be able to play this one, since the controls are NOT intuitive or easy to navigate. I suppose it's similar in control to the other Lego games (like Indiana Jones), but after playing through using the stylus for everything on the first HP game, this seems like a major step backward.

2) I miss having a map on the top screen and playing/controlling on the bottom screen. The new bottom half just displays your spell options and seems a waste of the second screen.

I have to say as soon as I started playing this, I was also severely disappointed. It is no way near as much fun as the original. As mentioned in another review, the whole point of HP Lego 1-4 was using the stylus to cast all the spells, and in this one, you don't even need the stylus. You can use it to change characters, spells, and during dueling, but it's not necessary since they provide you the keys for use of the use.

The graphics are quite poor, and with the concept of the stylus gone, this game just isn't as fun. The concept is basically the same though, go through every level trying to collect as many studs, do spells to unlock new areas, and collect the hats, red legos, and unlock characters. I guess the only thing I do like more about this one is that the game allows you the option of saving more frequently since each section is broken down into multiple sections. You can also leave some areas by choice, not because the game moves on. This can be helpful if you still want to explore.

Otherwise, this game is a huge disappointment compared to the first, although I don't think it's as poorly done as Pirates of the Caribbean Lego, but probably about second since I have both Indiana Jones and both Star Wars Lego on top of the original Harry Potter one. In the end, if you're a fan of the original, you probably won't like this one as much.
