Summary: Very amusing game to spend some time with, but there are too many bugs in it. One in particular is the Dark Tower level in year 3 as you hit two statues that have to melt an ice wall, the game just stops and you have to shut it down and start over again and again. The problem is discussed in fora all over the internet, could there not be made a download to fix the bug? There is no other way to get past that scene and on with the game (playing on PC).
Summary: REMEMBER: THIS IS MADE FOR KIDS NOT ADULTS (although it is fun for adults) As an avid Harry Potter fan I was very anxious to play this game after having played other lego games. The beginning of this game was steller, but after playing for many hours i found it repetative and boring. However, once completing the game I felt satisfied and felt that it was worth the money I paid for it. I did not find the bug that previous reviewers have discussed.
Summary: Our family has enjoyed playing Lego Star Wars (the Complete Saga) and Lego Batman so when this went on sale, we decided to give it a try. Overall, it's entertaining but this game just seems overly complicated compared to the other Lego titles. In Star Wars & Batman you have a central location where you purchase all your upgrades, extras, etc. but in Harry Potter, you have to go to a number of different "shops".
Summary: This game isn't fun. I already beat year 1. When I started playing it was good, not great. Then it started to get boring. You can't even fight monsters or something. All you do is cast spells on stuff to pick them up or something or you get coins to buy stuff. This is the worst lego game ever!
A $46 disc of bugs, glitches, and a fair amount of fun

Summary: This game had its distracting moments. I should know, I played over 20 hours of it trying to find every last collectible and earn every last trophy. Alas, I was to ultimately fail as the secret item in the game that directs you to hidden collectibles does not always work properly and sent me on a few wild goose chases. I would eventually call of the search due to my frustration and lack of desire to take out a $46 disc and snap it in half to teach it a lesson.
Summary: Lego Harry Poter follows the great formula of the previous games though the
numerous glitches ruin it (with a good system you can manage to avoid all the
glitches but the most common). It is heartbreaking to reach 98.8% and find out
that you can not do the final level because the last gold brick cannot be
retrieved. For this unfortunately I cannot rate this game what it truely
deserves if the creators had actually done their jobs properly.
