    A mediocre, but fun game. The main letdowns are the lousy production values in cutscenes and the sometimes clumsy touchscreen controls.

    Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 is a fun game that combines the world of the magician with that of Lego bricks. Many puzzles and many spells are the key elements of this title.

    Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is fun and varied, but suffers from some minor setbacks on the Vita.

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 delivers what it aims to: offer fun for everyone, regardless their age. If you can buy the home console of PC version there are not many reasons to recommend this version, as it lacks the multiplayer elements.
  5. This is easily the weakest link in the LEGO chain. [June 2012, p.83]

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 for the PS Vita is a game that brings up mixed emotions. On one hand we have a satisfactory gameplay, lots of humor and things to unlock that sholud provide at least a dozen hours of fun. On the other hand, the game is technically flawed and lacks a basic co-op mode.

    Nothing new in terms of game play when dealing with the basics of the LEGO series, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 for the PS Vita is one of the more dull adventures set in a world crafted from the classic building blocks. Combine this with no multiplayer, tacked on touch controls, and the fact that the game has been available on consoles for months already, and this port is barely worth anyone's time.

    At first, it had some game-breaking glitches. They were all fixed with a patch, however. Now, it is a smooth and fulfilling experience. I absolutely love it! I previously had Lego Star Wars III on the 3DS. This game is a HUGE step up from that. Also, it's gorgeous. They did not skimp on the graphics in the least bit. It also went down to $20 on the PS Store this week. Download it now! Expand

    This is your average Lego game, It retells a handful of the movies in Lego form. It is fun, easily accessible I always try to have at least 1 Lego game for each of my systems, they are great if you want a non-violent game to let a kid play and there is just a lot of content for the gamer, loads of levels which once unlocked you can go back and replay accessing special areas. I'm not a big Harry Potter fan or anything but I still enjoyed this game. I got mine on sale for 20$ which is about what it's worth. This is a solid game if you're looking for some new material to work your way through on the Vita nothing earth shattering but not bad. Expand

    DS Port. Results in a terrible PS Vita game. Cutscenes are so muddy and terrible you can barely tell what's going on. The game is ugly to say the least, the controls are weird because of the lack of a second screen and little to no thought put into how to translate that aspect (picking spells) onto Vita.

    If you're expecting a console experience from this, don't. It's the handheld experience. The lowest common denominator determined this game's fate. The developers should be ashamed to try and sell Vita owners a DS port.
