    For those that thought the original didn't have enough combat, here is the disappointing truth: not even magic can hold this combat system together. The game is definitely the best game based on any of the final 4 films, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. The castle hasn't changed bar a few new puzzles, and the edition of "I'm not a level but I actually am" is annoying.

The levels also feel rushed, and the boss fights become repetitive fast, and get worse as the game progresses. The humor has far more lows then highs, and the character select screen makes the achievements become far more tedious then they need to be. Expand

    A series, and a game, that seems to have lost a remarkable amount of lustre and just doesn't feel as interesting to play through as some of it's peers. The story is drab and drawn out, plus the tasks that litter the game are overly simplistic even for a kids title. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is still better than any number of kids titles and movie tie ins, but otherwise this is a major disappointment for fans of LEGO games and Potter alike, and just doesn't have that spark of magic that you would expect.

    Once again, the Lego version of Harry Potter is neither a revolution nor anything close to it, but an enjoyable adventure that's accessible for anyone, regardless of their gaming experience.

    A bit more imagination would have been preferable, but you're more than getting your money's worth. [Issue#80, p.85]
