  1. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1 – 4 truly captures the magic of Harry Potter combined with the nostalgic fun of LEGO. There's more than enough to keep players coming back for more, and that's where the title essentially shines.
  2. 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.

    LEGO Harry Potter is a decent game. It'll prove to be a great deal of fun for those who are either into LEGO games or those who are into the Harry Potter series (or better yet, both), but it does nothing unique, fresh or interesting that sets it apart from the pack.
  4. The portable Potter has the ingredients of a decent game, but lacks the inspiration and polish needed to conjure a potent gameplay potion. [Oct 2010, p.79]

    Not a bad game, but disappointing that it's a port of the vastly graphically reduced DS version rather than a proper port of the console versions, which the PSP is completely capable of handling. It's not awful, just completely unimpressive. You'd be better off playing Years 5-7, which is the same game as on the consoles. Expand
