    In some areas (most notably the lack of voiceover) you can recognize the age of the originals. But with its slightly different, more puzzle and exploration oriented approach to the Lego formula the trip to Hogwarts still stands out.

    Despite later LEGO games being more polished and streamlined, LEGO Harry Potter holds up surprisingly well. Even though it’s starting to show some cracks in a few areas, this remastered collection cleans things up quite nicely. In fact, they’re some of my favorite LEGO games Traveler’s Tales have ever released thanks to its excellent use of the license and some truly solid level design. It’s still a ton of fun playing through Harry’s seven years at Hogwarts, and until Warner Bros puts out a truly original Potter game, The LEGO Harry Potter Collection is the best Potter game fans can buy.

    LEGO Harry Potter doesn't bring anything new to the LEGO-formula, but the Harry Potter world is still great. Characters feel unique even though casting spells isn't always fun. Thanks to the music and coop you'll forget about that quickly though.

    Did we really need the LEGO Harry Potter Collection? No. Is it worth giving it a look and taking a trip down memory lane? Sure, why not… but the cheaper option of buying the originals is also a viable option.

    The LEGO Harry Potter Collection takes players back to LEGO game basics; before voice overs, before depth, before polish, and before just about everything else that makes the current formula so widely appealing. That said, this collection is well worth a trip if you enjoy the source material. There’s magic, there’s humor, and there’s a lot of fun fan service to soak up here, if little else.

The improved visuals and sound design make the game come alive in all areas which in turn means you become very immersed within the gameplay. I found the controls to be very responsive throughout my time with the game and this did mean that my frustration levels were kept to a minimum. There is a decent amount of creative puzzles packed into the gameplay and most of the time these were fun and rewarding. I enjoyed the sound design in the game the lack of voice acting was a little disappointing. Unfortunately the game suffers with a few technical issues every now and then and these do hold the game back a little bit.
    The camera in the game did get on my nerves a bit because it never seemed to go where I wanted it to go. I loved LEGOs as a kid and I enjoyed the Harry Potter movies when my son was Youngers, so when I first saw the announcement of LEGO Harry Potter Collection I was interested to say the least. Thankfully it’s a pretty good game as well but I will say that the shortcomings it suffers with do hold the game back quite a bit. Some of the shortcomings are small though and whilst it would’ve been nice to have had some voice acting included the visuals and sound design still do more than enough to immerse you. The biggest problem for me with this collection was the technical issues that kept popping up every now and then because they did frustrate me a little bit. Thankfully though this frustration didn’t last very long because the varied content makes you forget about the issues. Speaking about the content there’s a huge amount for you to sink your teeth into and when you combine that with the excellent and responsive controls you end up having quite a lot fun. At the end of the day then LEGO Harry Potter Collection does more than enough to satisfy fans of both genre’s and whilst it isn’t the best LEGO game out there it still does enough to get a thumbs up from me because you can tell that a lot of thought and effort has gone into the collection.

V závěru nás tak jen mrzí, že remaster nepřináší nic nového, takže pokud už jste předešlou generaci prozkoumali kostičkované Bradavice, raději si znovu přečtěte knihy. Expand
