    It's another good installment of the Lego video game series. Certainly it's not as fun as Lego Star Wars, but it still holds its own. Magic is just as fun as The Force and you get a lot of different spells to use. Splitscreen is also a very welcome addition to the series if you co-op play; previously, you had to have both player characters in the same screen, but now you can wander off and it creates two separate views. There's a lot of things to collect, especially in Hogwarts, and there's a detector for almost all of them so it doesn't get to be too hard. There are tons of different puzzles and almost none of them will require an FAQ because you get stuck. Good fun all around, and (according to Steam) at least 32 hours of gameplay. There are a few bugs, but nothing that kills the game. It 100% crashes for me whenever you exit the game, but that doesn't really matter. It also occasionally crashes randomly during play, but it doesn't set you back much unless you're in a level. I also encountered a few oddities and glitches, but again nothing that kills then game or prevents 100% completion. Expand

  1. A joyous and addictive action puzzler. [Sept 2010, p.102]

    The comedic cutscenes toying with canon, the hundreds of hidden things to find, and the general sense of a great LEGO game paired with a great series really makes this game a standout.
  3. The concept of LEGO Games blends perfectly with the Harry Potter franchise. Possibly the best LEGO Game to date!
