Review: LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4

Developers: Traveller’s Tales | Year: 2010 | List Price: $19.99 | Buy from Amazon

I remember first hearing about the game on MuggleCast, and thinking how awesome it sounded. Now, even after having the game for months, it is still one of my favourite games of all time, and I have only just completed about 50% of it. Granted, I haven’t been playing that often, but I would say it’s practically impossible to finish the entire game! After finishing all the levels, you unlock the rest of Hogwarts, and every time I play, I’ll see a new room, or mini-level I haven’t seen before. Although it’s such a simple game, and not very difficult, it packs more replay value than any game I’ve ever seen. It’s certainly better than any other Harry Potter game (the EA ones were too simple, and had no replay value whatsoever).

On the other hand, Pottermore has had some problems with letting people on the site. Continue reading
