    A more refined beast than its predecessor, Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is a fitting end to the boy wizard's adventures.

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is a treat for those who loved the first title; its uncomplicated free-exploration style makes it a hard game to put down.

    Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is fun, it's often funny, and it's not the most intense action game on iOS, but that's okay. It's a cute parody of a beloved universe, and it gives you all the fun of playing with Lego without the risk of stepping on a rogue block with your bare feet in the dark of the night.

    Everything you've enjoyed about both Harry Potter and the wonderful Lego series of games can be found here: the exploration, the intricate puzzles built into the very fabric of the world, and a chance to savour the world of Potter and friends just one more time. It may not be the best use of the brand, but there's still plenty to be had for existing fans.

    It's frustrating to see the controls form such a pivotal step backwards for LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7. Other than that, it's a great way of playing a highly enjoyable game for a much lower price than through console means.

    Sure, Years 5-7 looks good visually, but the switch to a virtual gamepad along with the issues mentioned above deter the game from being better. As it is, the Lego gameplay is intact, meaning that fans of the series should continue to enjoy it.

    So while it may wobble a little, you can count this among another LEGO experience built just as high as the world it's mirroring.

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 changes the intuitive gameplay of the first game for new console based controls; it's funny, but isn't better compared with Years 1-4.

    Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is a weird experience where the great intuitive controls of the predecessor have been replaced with unresponsive buttons.
