Too many glitches!

Summary: I liked the brain challenge however there are way too many glitches with this game. I do not know if I was accidentally sent a used one instead of a new one but there is one glitch that prevents me from advancing on to the next level in Deathly Hallows Part 2, Burning Bridges. I would return the game, but the envelope was already thrown away.
Summary: I played Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 - 4 and I loved it, so I got Years 5 - 7 last Christmas. I was really looking forward to playing it, but when my sister and I started playing the game, we noticed that the graphics were poor and then it started to freezing the further we got into the game.
Summary: On 15 November, after awaiting its release anxiously, I purchase a copy of Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 for the Nintendo Wii console. The screen has frozen a minimum of 6 times in 24 hours (I stopped counting) and renders the console's controls useless whilst emitting a very loud, obnoxious, high pitched noise from the speakers that can only be what it sounds like when several geese scream through a megaphone as they are wrenched through heavy machinery.
Summary: My son was really excited to get this game last Friday. Unfortunately, his enjoyment has been tempered by the extreme bugginess of the release. Since he made it to the 6th year, the game has crashed constantly. We finally called customer service this morning and were informed that it has been recalled. We will be sent a new disk in the mail.
Summary: After making it through story mode, I have been trying to play in free play mode in an effort to collect all the characters, crests, etc. But I keep running into glitches all the time! Everything from garden shears not cutting flowers (Year 5: A Giant Virtuoso) to the cart randomly stopping in Gringorts (Year 7 Part 2: Thiefs Downfall). I have tried restarting the level, quitting and restarting the game, turning my wii off and back on. Nothing works.
Original defective, replacement defective, working on a third

Summary: This product has faulty programming that leads to the game freezing. When you spend this much on a game you shouldn't have to "work around" problems. We ultimately had to go to the manufacturer and it will take 4-6 weeks on top of the two weeks it took for the manufacturer to "receive" it. Try a different game until WB gets this issue worked out. UPDATE: Still waiting to receive our third game from WB.
Summary: I recieved this game for Christmas. It immediately started locking up/freezing at the Weasley House 6th year. I thought it was a problem with my particular game, so returned it for a brand new one and now I am having the exact same problem. I see others posting the same issue, so I now know it is not my disk, but a definite problem with the game. Warner Brothers needs to fix this, provide a patch or issue a recall so people can trade for another product.
Summary: Great to see Lego get the HP 5-7 years out, but there was the same glitch in the two different copies of the game. In the middle of play, the screen froze and the only way out of the game was to shut off TV, game console, and do a reset. If Amazon hasn't done it already, this game should not be for sale until the manufacturer has figured out the issues. Bummer.
