    Harry Potter's unabridged adventure on the iPhone is first class.

    An absolutely massive game with all of the features you've come to expect from a Lego title, whether that be an impressive selection of playable characters, collectible goodies galore, or the trademark silent Lego-ized cinema scenes that provide summarized version of a franchise's plot.

    While the lack of suitable controls can prove to be bothersome, it doesn't take away from the game's otherwise simple and compelling gameplay.

    Lego Harry Potter is simply stunning. For $4.99 you get a good 15 hours or so of gameplay and it's all excellent fun.

    You will have hours of fun at the fraction of the cost for the same game on Nintendo DS.
  6. Feb 5, 2011
    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is a charming adventure hampered by an ill-conceived touch control scheme.
  7. Feb 5, 2011
    Mobile games always work best when they're simple and refined, but LEGO Harry Potter's debut on iOS feels flabby and unfocused.

    An entertaining, if repetitive game that features many levels and is certainly worth the money for the length. Although a lego game can't quite capture the Harry Potter mood, the lightheartedness and humour, as well as easy to handle gameplay and a spirit of adventure, always keep it entertaining. Expand

    I bought this app for my iPhone when it was on sale for $2.99 when the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 came out (reg. $4.99) and it was worth buying alone! Gameplay is what you'd expect from a LEGO game: you smash objects, collect studs and solve puzzles. This is a good thing because it never gets old at all because it's fun! With or without the sale, this is one of the fullest apps out there and it's worth your money and time! Collapse
