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.
Summary: Warner Bros should have pulled this game off the market until they got it right. It is unconscionable that Warner Brothers continues to sell this game without having fixed a major glitch of which they have been aware for more than a year.
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.
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.
Complete waste of time. Unplayable due to glitches

Summary: I just purchased this game over the Christmas weekend expecting an enjoyable Lego game. Unfortunately, this was not meant to be. I spent the past exhausting week starting and restarting this game again and again (4 times) only to get caught by a glitch deep inside the game.
Summary: We were so excited to play the game and were loving it until the game froze. We tried everything to fix it, but nothing worked. We put the old Harry Potter game in (years 1-4) and had no problems. Clearly it is the game itself and there doesn't seem to be any realistic fixes.
Summary: This game seems to have been released before thoroughly tested. We are playing it but can't progress beyond "Thieves Downfall" because of a bug -- we only figured this out after much frustration by checking the Video Games Blogger site. The graphics aren't as lush also. Very disappointing overall.
Worthless unless you are in the market for a $50 coaster

Summary: This was my son's most anticipated Christmas present... and the biggest disappointment of the season. While others have said that the game froze up in the middle of play, they should count themselves lucky. We never even got to gameplay.
