    Even with the advancements done to the formula over the years, the LEGO Harry Potter Collection remains a solid game for fans. Gameplay remains simple enough for kids to enjoy, but the amount of content packed into each title ensures they'll still be working on it long after the campaigns have been finished. The enhancements due to the platform jump aren't truly significant, but they help make an already clean-looking game shine just a tiny bit more. Unless you've played these to death on previous consoles, this is certainly a game that deserves to be checked out by those who still adore the LEGO games without question.

    A good remaster for the two LEGO Harry Potter games: the games' structure is a little outdated, if compared to the most recent LEGO games, but going back to Hogwarts is always a pleasure.

    Tt Games did a wonderful job with bringing the world of Harry Potter to life through the LEGO Harry Potter Collection and remastering the experience onto the PlayStation 4. The games certainly show their age, but they’re still a blast, especially if you’re a Harry Potter fanatic.

    The LEGO Harry Potter Collection is a fancy-free, funny and robust brickified version of the eight Harry Potter movies. The current asking price of $50 may be a little steep, considering these are 5 year old games without additional content. One to watch once it hits a more comfortable price point. Worth a look, but only if you don't already own the games.

    I can only recommend this collection to people who intend to play it with a young Potter fan. Otherwise Lego Star Wars or Lego Hobbit will be a better choice, because these games are simply better. [13/2016, p.49]

    A nice comeback, were it not for the bugs and glitches. They were present in the previous versions and, unfortunately, appear to have made the journey to this generation of consoles along with everything else.

    If you enjoyed these games the first time and just want more Trophies for your collection, then by all means, jump in a second time. But if you missed LEGO Harry Potter back then, it’s far too rough to come back to now.

    Amazing game (which is actually two games, with slightly different setups and gameplay, but both great) - perfect for children who are fans ofAmazing game (which is actually two games, with slightly different setups and gameplay, but both great) - perfect for children who are fans of Harry Potter as well as of LEGO. The difficulty is just right. My son (now 7, 6 at the time I bought this game) has completed the game about 8 times, which means hours and hours and hours of play, and is still playing it from time to time. Literally endless play after completing the game, just to unlock rare and expensive characters, and to find and complete all kinds of bonus levels, some of which pays handsomely to buy the characters you want.

    Gameplay is great, both in 1-player and 2-player mode, where a more experienced player may assist a younger player. Some of the puzzles and foes require some help to solve/defeat. It's great for non-native English speakers, that there are no English dialogue in the game, that needs to be explained, like in the LEGO Marvel games. The characters simply imply emotions and what else in their facial expressions and grunts/sounds, so that the story gets through, no matter what language one knows.

    Great graphics and great mood too in both games. Originally bought this game for the Wii, but after seeing the overall improvements to graphics and sound, just had to buy it for the PS4.

    Overall, an awesome purchase.

    I was not that pleased with LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 when I first played it on the Wii. Game-breaking glitches were everywhere and the SDI was not that pleased with LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 when I first played it on the Wii. Game-breaking glitches were everywhere and the SD quality of the Wii made it even less enjoyable. Years 5-7 was much better, but was still a bit rough around the edges.

    I can't speak for those who played the original games on the PS3 or Xbox 360, but as for someone who played the Wii versions, this remastered collection is an enormous step-up. After about 5 hours of gameplay, I have yet to encounter a single bug. The game is much smoother, brighter, and overall better looking than before. HP fans who have yet to pick up this game or haven't played it in a few years should definitely try this out.

    I'm not sure if I'm in the minority on this or anything but I have found the recent LEGO games, excluding The Force Awakens, to be rather lacking in terms of fun. LEGO Harry Potter Collection is a great reminder of the older LEGO games, which I think were better by far.

I not once experienced a singleI just finished getting the platinum trophy for these games, and I have to say it was a very fun experience. I not once experienced a single bug, whilst playing and the experience was quite satisfying. I rarely felt bored, while progressing through the story mode, and exploring the different areas of the Potter universe was a blast. As a fan of the Potter franchise, this game was everyhting I wanted it to be, however if you aren't a fan of Harry Potter, I can't see this game being appealing to you at all. The humour is funny and unexpectedly dark at times, which makes a pleasant playing experience for both young and old fans of the franchise I'm sure. There are many different spells for you to learn, which are all implemented in the game in a fun and engaging manner. One of the downsides I have is that sometimes bosses can feel a little repetitive, as they all have the same core mechanic. Graphically, the game is pretty visually pleasing and you are never turned off by low resolution, or dodgy textures, and I never noticed a single frame drop my whole time playing. Going back and replaying the levels, still feels fun and it didn't feel like a drag, going back to collect all the collectables. For beloved fans of the Potter franchise, this is a must-buy, I'd recommend to fans of other ;ego games or just fans of Lego in general too, however if you're not keen on Potter, I'd recommend you stay away.
