Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review
14 January 2012
Excerpt: Harry Potter's innocent days are over. The boarding school antics have trickled to a halt, classrooms have gone silent, and even Quidditch matches--once the mark of happier times--have fallen by the wayside. In their place, a much darker picture has taken shape, marked by isolation, unpredictability, and the ever-increasing fear of death. As far as stories go, it's not exactly a walk in the park, but it's nothing that a good Lego sense of humor can't handle.
Pros: Diverse, entertaining gameplay with lots of replay value, Effortlessly charming, Great reinterpretation of the original text and films
Cons: A couple of disjointed moments between story and gameplay
Conclusion: It's delightful for anyone of any age. There's plenty of extra replay value and its' something that families can enjoy together. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go and start saving up to buy Voldemort.
Excerpt: If you’re looking for a family-friendly adventure that nets you plenty of bang for your buck, you can always turn to a LEGO title. Traveller’s Tales has delivered plenty of great adventures for all ages; the developer has tackled everything from “Star Wars” to “Indiana Jones” to “Batman,” and the latest is the immensely popular (and seemingly endless) “Harry Potter” series.
Conclusion: The Short Version: To enjoy this you'll have to be a huge Harry Potter fan, or have an addiction to rooting out collectibles and gathering thousands of shiny coins. It’s very samey and repetitive, but the easy-going nature tries to focus on having fun exploring. After 15 hours, I completed the story and still had 50% of items still to find. Not many games offer similar value for money.
Pros: Value for money, Fans will enjoy the references and familiar locations, Collecting everything is addictive
Cons: Splitscreen is disappointing, Bash square button, hold circle button, repeat, Very little challenge
Summary: Gjengen i Traveller's Tales har laget disse spillene i en årrekke, og leverer igjen et produkt av velkjent kvalitet. Derfor presenteres vi imidlertid også for mye av det samme vante, og ingenting ved denne utgivelsen er i nærheten av revolusjonerende.
Summary: Das allein ist natürlich schon unendlich weit mehr, als ich jemals über die verunglückten direkten Umsetzungen des Filmstoffes sagen würde. Gegen diese Machwerke ist das hier ein gleißendes Licht des goldenen Spieldesigns überhaupt. Das Thema wird wieder perfekt aufgegriffen und auf die eigene, drollige Art mit treffsicherer Routine umgesetzt und Fans werden es sofort ins Herz schließen.
