    Delivers the most fully realized vision of Rowling's world that our medium has seen. TT Games has once again raised their own bar when it comes to splitscreen co-op. Fans of the books and movies will find immeasurable joy in exploring the iconic locales with their favorite characters that have become so ingrained in the pop-culture lexicon over the past 15 years.

    The puzzles are easy, the platforming is floaty and doesn't feel quite right, and the combat is one-button. And yet the games are still loads of fun. It's clear that Traveller's Tales made 5 -7 with a lot of love, and with a great eye for detail.

    LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 does a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the movie franchise and juxtaposing it with all things LEGO. The light difficulty might be off-putting for seasoned gamers, but it is perfect for family gaming and younger players.

    Everything you've come to expect from a LEGO game. Nothing more, nothing less. Which means you'll be spending a lot of time smashing LEGO bricks around and have an incredible amount of fun doing so.

    LEGO Harry Potter 5-7 is a charming farewell to the series. As with a lot of Traveller's Tales' games, you won't see a whole lot of crazy gameplay innovations or surprises, but it's reliably entertaining and appropriate for a wide range of gamers, Potterphiles or not.

    The final chapters in LEGOs Harry Potter adventure deliver a charming adaption of the last four movies in the franchise. The game features everything you would expect from a Traveller's Tales game, but introduces nothing new to the series. A Repetitive gameplay and somewhat easy riddles decreases the challenge. Still, fans will appreciate the humoristic and enthusiastic retelling of the story, not to forget the huge amount of unlockable content.

It also looks great. The best Potter game EVER!â Expand

After heavy disappointment from the official film tie-in's, Traveller's Tales has really nailed it! I'm a big fan of the original Years 1-4 and 5-7 builds upon the charm and freedom of the first one to give a really comprehensive Potter experience. I especially love being able to roam around London and get on a train to Hogsmeade and walk around the castle, meet new characters and experience all the extra bonus content that the dev's have managed to get in there. I have been following this game eagerly since it was announced and I read that it was one "by Potter fans, for Potter fans" and there is some lovely subtle references of the books (but left of out the films). This game did not disappoint and it's exactly as I imaged it would be. Anyone who claims to be a Potter fan needs this game in their lives.â Expand

I had very high expectations for this game and I'll admit I was disappointed with the Battle of Hogwarts. I was expecting it to be a very huge battle, you see. The new character models are great and there is more places to explore such as London, Platform 9 3/4 and Hogsmeade. Expand

It’s best moments is the fact that theThe sequel to Lego Harry Potter 1-4 is an improved version that has its best moments and worst moments. It’s best moments is the fact that the magic powers are still here and they managed to make all the characters in the roster unique somehow. Also the levels are brighter and use the magic powers nicely. Also the hub eras are unique like for example the school and the town of magic thingy. However the worst moments arrive rather quickly. You still can’t unlock the characters by playing as them in the levels you instead have to buy them, and they are stupidly expensive. Also there is still some levels that are unplayable and it’s really sad because this game uses its magic powers in so many unique ways. Overall the game is fun and offers so many unique characters levels and hub eras, but the unlocking system and the dark unplayable levels make the game sometimes weak. (3/5 Good Give It A Try) Expand
