Lego Harry Potter Years 1 - 4
Family Friendly Gaming
16 April 2013
Excerpt: The Lego franchise has been a big one for families for many, many years now. Harry Potter is a controversial franchise that families love or refuse to have any association with. Why not? Well Harry Potter revolves completely and totally around magic. I know a lot of people who want nothing to do with magic in any way, shape or form. I respect them and their beliefs. So mixing Legos with Harry Potter presents a conundrum for me as a reviewer.
Summary: Parents need to know that LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 covers the stories of the first four Harry Potter books (and movies ). Those stories get darker as they go along, but in the world of LEGO video games, even that which is scary or violent is depicted with colorful block characters. A spooky LEGO ghost still looks like a toy. Even among the growing library of LEGO video games, though, Harry Potter is less violent.
Conclusion: Like the cut scenes, the entire game seems to improve as players delve deeper through the years and as Harry ages. The source material allows for more action and larger set pieces, which translate well for a game experience. So even with a slow start and frustrating bugs, Traveller’s Tales manages to create a rather delectable potion for the first part of LEGO Harry’s journey. Hopefully, the developer perfects the formula for the final three years.

Conclusion: Concept: Paste the LEGO skin over another beloved franchise
Graphics: Ninety-five percent of all the characters look alike except for their tie colors
Sound: It’s always fun to hear mumbled versions of the characters’ voices
Playability: Spell targeting is iffy at times
Entertainment: Co-op fans will have to keep it local until a free patch opens up online play shortly after release
Excerpt: LEGO Harry Potter then, is the sixth stud collectathon in the series. It may be based on the Harry Potter films this time instead of Star Wars, Batman or Indiana Jones, but despite the magical makeover, the gameplay is very much the same as it has been for the past six years. Of course, this isn't a bad thing. The LEGO games are often praised for their ease of use, great drop-in and drop-out co-op and sense of humour and this latest edition in no different.
Summary: Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 er perfekt for deg som har ekstrem samlemani siden du da lett kan synke inn flere titalls timer i spillet. Problemene er mange, alt fra kontrollproblemer til mangelfull forklaring av spillelementer til repeterende og irriterende lyd. Hvis du likevel kan se forbi dette vil du finne et spill som vil gi deg utallige timer med samling, utforsking og leting, kanskje helst med en venn.
Conclusion: Lego Harry Potter jaren 1-4 is, denk ik, de leukste Lego game in de reeks. Het eentonige vechten en veel lastige platform elementen zijn verdwenen en de portie puzzelen die daarvoor in de plaats is gekomen werkt gewoon erg goed. De vele humoristische elementen passen perfect bij het Lego gevoel en ook het gebruik van de officiële filmmuziek voegt veel sfeer toe. Ik denk dat kinderen vanaf een jaar of 7 de game daarom ook magisch zullen vinden.
