Review: Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Nintendo DS)

Games Are Evil
22 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Harry Potter fans have a lot to be excited about this year.  The final installment of the movie series hits the big screen in the fall.  Fans from all around the world are flocking to Orlando, Florida to be immersed in the new theme park experience.  And then there’s Lego Harry Potter which can be played across all the major consoles, on the PC, and as a portable experience for the PSP and Nintendo DS. In our house, we are big fans of the Lego games.
  • Pros: More excellent Lego adventures and humor.
  • Cons: Control scheme leaves a bit to be desired at times, and the game may be a bit on the easy side for seasoned gamers.

  • Conclusion: Overall, LEGO Harry Potter for DS is a perfectly serviceable game.  It’s reasonably polished and gives suitable fan service to Rowling’s masterpiece.  It’s also a game that isn’t quite as engrossing as other LEGO treatments, in part because it’s not as action-packed.  Some of this may be an inevitable product of the source material and it may also be a matter of taste; players who enjoy more of an exploration- and puzzle-based game may find this to be a good treatment.

  • Summary: It's difficult to fault this DS rendition of LEGO Harry Potter as most areas of the game are executed quite well, aside from some slightly unresponsive touchscreen controls that can be a little tricky until you get a handle on them. While not quite as fulfilling an experience as that of its Wii counterpart, the game still provides a nice puzzle-infused platforming romp that should more than please fans of the Harry Potter series of books and movies.

  • Excerpt: The first thing we scribbled down after beginning LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 was 'GTA'., It's a strange comparison to make but LEGO Harry Potter's game world gives you a similar sense of freedom to do what you want, when you want, albeit in bite-sized episodes. The result is a game that is both familiar and very different in structure to any LEGO game that has gone before.

  • Conclusion: Overall although the amount of spells can be a bit alarming once you get used to it you’ve got a heck of a game in your hands! I would give it a rating of 85%.

  • Summary: Eind dit jaar mogen we deel één van Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in de zalen verwachten, maar voor het zover is, kunnen we ons geheugen nog eens opfrissen met Harry Potter: Jaren 1-4. Als je dus niet meer weet hoe het allemaal begon en welke zaken Harry tegen kwam in The Philosopher's Stone, the Chamber of Secrets, The Prizoner of Azkaban en The Goblet of Fire, dan zit je goed met deze LEGO Harry Potter: Jaren 1-4.
  • Pros: Veel vrij te spelen, Zorgenloos, Mooi ‘huwelijk’ tussen LEGO en Harry Potter
  • Cons: Puzzels worden herhaald, Technische mankementjes
