  1. The Lego rendition of The Boy Who lived is a seriously charming take on the life of a wizard, with loads of gameplay variety and an emphasis on discovery.
  2. As much fun as previous DS games, though Potter perhaps doesn't translate quite as well to Lego.
  3. There are a lot of characters, magic tricks and secrets to discover. The controls are a bit awkward but the charming lego world will entertain you for a couple of hours.
  4. LEGO Harry Potter's DS debut has a good foundation, decent gameplay, and tons of content.
  5. While not quite as fulfilling an experience as that of its Wii counterpart, the game still provides a nice puzzle-infused platforming romp that should more than please fans of the Harry Potter series of books and movies.
  6. Traveller's Tales have sure struck a gold mine with the LEGO series. Their earlier block-themed games have been charmingly cute and amusing, and Harry Potter is no exception. You can't blame them for sticking to a winning formula, as Potter and LEGO fans will likely flock to play this game.
  7. Lacks the charm, fluid controls and, crucially, wit of the brilliant Wii game. [July 2010, p.56]

    Nice-looking, long game for the DS. Has cinematics from the cross-platform versions. Maybe too easy, I hope there will be more challenge on the next game. Expand
