  1. PC Zone UK
    87
    An imperfect romp that manages to cover its flaws with charm and relentless action. [Oct 2010, p.84]
  2. 85
    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. PC Gamer UK
    85
    A joyous and addictive action puzzler. [Sept 2010, p.102]
  4. LEGO Harry Potter is much deeper than it seems and presents a universe that feels tailored for the LEGO treatment. A few technical issues aside, LEGO Harry Potter is a game that is truly fun for all ages and above all, a game first and a license second.
  5. The story material is handled wonderfully (though if you've never read the books or watched the movies, prepare to be lost), and the gameplay is a great mix of familiar devices and new elements. Although the inevitable follow-up to this title may take a darker turn, I look forward to experiencing it all the same.
  6. Harry's adventure into Lego land is exactly what you'd want it to be: charming, fun, and chock-full of secrets.
  7. PC Format
    55
    The format of these games gets more and more tired with each new franchise, too. [Sept 2010, p.104]

Il gioco come ovvio che sia ha la solita lego, ironia dei lego, riportando le scene dei film in modo divertente e quasi identico, possibilità di avere diverse magie, livelli bonus, personaggi personalizzati, uso di più personaggi con la pozione polisucco, e tanto altro, rendono questo titolo splendido e ammirabile da tutte le categorie.

    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. MagicIt'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

This time we can visit the magical world of wizardry. It is a really fun experience to wander around in Hogwarts as an open world.
    What this game does great is the feeling of this magical world. Strongly recommended for co-op play.

    An OK LEGO game, the magic system is a fine new addition, but it suffers from all the cons the other LEGO games do.
