Summary: for potter fans this game is a good time waster, but it really feels like a template game with familiar faces thrown in. the game seems designed for a 5 year old; even harry was 9 when his adventure began. worth a few hours of fanboy dawdling (I did enjoy the game for a day or so) but only buy it if yu can get it cheap.
Summary: The reason I picked two stars because I ordered the wrong item. You need another option for people that make mistakes. This item was also a Christmas gift however I goofed by ordering the wrong item. I believe its been returned for the correct item.
Not really a game. Its controllable memorabilia.. In LEGO form

Summary: If you're one of those hugely obsessed Harry Potter fans, this game may be for you. But for someone like me who has watched only the first two installments [I was 8 and 9 when the films were released], skip buying this game. To me this makes for a very boring "game". I think the people who will enjoy this game most are the fans of the movie who want to relive moments of the film via LEGO mock-scenes.
Summary: If you're one of those hugely obsessed Harry Potter fans, this game may be for you, but for someone like me who has watched and only mildly enjoyed the first two installments [I was 8 and 9 when the films were released]; skip buying this. To me this makes for a very boring "game". Their is no REAL amount of control in it. Its mocked completely by the film, so playing this game is like you're going by a script.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I'm a huge fan of the Lego games and of Harry Potter. This is the first game I had no desire to finish. It's so confusing to collect all the spells and the icons are so small, it's hard to differentiate between the different spells. It was hard to scroll through the spells fast enough to defeat enemies and if you don't play for a day or two, it's easy to forget which spell is which.
Summary: My desktop's CPU is an AMD 6000+ with 4GB RAM a Radeon HD 5750 1GB graphics card and 1TB of disk space (I built it myself). It handled the graphics without problems and I was able to finish the game, but the game was pretty buggy and I had to restart it almost after every chapter. Be aware that it's graphics intensive, so you need a good graphics card to play it. I doubt the default desktops from Best Buy would be able to play it. The game hangs very often.
Summary: I love the Lego games, but this was a very glitchy game (glitchiest of all Lego games). I had the PS3 version. Although I finished the game, my daughter had to start the whole game over because the bank in Diagon Alley was unlocked, but wouldn't let her play the bonus levels... Very frustrating.
