HASH(0xb3c8af00) out of 5 stars Great Game! But only AFTER Patch 3.00 + New Game Jan. 30 2011
By A Gamer Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3 Verified Purchase
Ok, this game is getting some MAJOR Hate and I can see why. Its nothing but a broken mess. However, FEAR NOT! If you're buying this game for the first time AND have your PS3 connected to the internet you are perfectly fine. Once you start your game you'll download Patch 3.00 which fixes everything, but ONLY with the start of a new game. A lot of people have been complaining that even with Patch 3.00 they are still having problems like Gringotts Bank is now closed and won't open and some character tokens are still not appearing. However, these people already have a game started prior to downloading Patch 3.00. I got the game for Christmas, downloaded Patch 3.00 and had no problems whatsoever. I was able to successfully get the Platinum trophy with no problem. The gameplay is fun, the story is memorable, and if you've loved all the other Lego games you'll love this one! For those of you who started a game prior to Patch 3.00 and are still having problems I'm terribly sorry. Hopefully Traveler Tales doesn't make the same mistake of releasing a broken game with their next installment.

HASH(0xb3ced624) out of 5 stars Celebrating a Return to Hogwarts by Lego June 29 2010
By James Hiller - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3
I've been a big fan of the Lego games since playing my first "Star Wars" video game a few years back. At first, I really thought as an adult that the Lego games were just for kids, not challenging nor fun. Boy, was I wrong. The Lego video games are an engaging series infused with what I call a "Lego" sense of humor that permeates through the game. From Star Wars to the challenging Batman game, to my personal favorite, Indian Jones, they all have been pleasurable experiences. When I heard about Harry Potter coming out as a video game, I was elated. And truth be told, this game is as good as all of the others in the series. At first it seemed as if Harry Potter and Lego have somehow parted ways. There weren't any Lego sets released with the last movie, and nothing much on the Lego website about Harry Potter in general. However, the two have united again in a very fun video game, "Harry Potter: Years 1 -4".

Since I'm a casual adult gamer (I play video games but won't spend days playing a game straight without a break), my review comes from that perspective. First, the creators of the game have gotten so much right about this game. From the infusion of the magical components of the game to the story to the characterization of the people, it all works brilliantly. The game starts as Harry is whisked from his sad existence at Privet Drive to Diagon Alley, accompanied by a lovable Hagrid. This section is designed to teach you everything there is to know about the game. However, if you've played any of the Lego video games before, it's all very instinctive and natural. There are some specific controls that you need to learn to move things and cast spells, but it all feels very natural. Just in the first level alone, you can make things fly, move, and animate with a flick of the wand. It's all very entertaining!

When Harry reaches Hogwarts, I was impressed with the both level of detail in the design of the game, as well as Lego components that are infused in the place. It feels very natural and yet very Lego! For those of you like me who adore the coin collection part of the game (it's rather an obsession of mine), Lego has that back and allows you to collect to your hearts content as you smash your way to wealth! Another one of the better additions to the game is also the use of "Polyjuice Potion" to be able to change characters through the game play to make your way through the levels. The challenge of the game isn't too great (I made my way through the first movie on the first day, which was approximately six levels), and you are given spells to use as you need them. I like the gradual release of these spells because you actually remember them.

What are the drawbacks? For one thing, there doesn't seem to be an "area to explore" as in, an area to wander around. You are pretty confined to the "sets" to explore. While in Hogwarts, you can definitely not follow your ghost guide and try to accomplish other tasks, but it definitely isn't an open range. Another drawback is the broom flying feature is a bit weak and hard to get used to. You don't ride from the front on perspective, but from the side, making depth perception a bit tricky.

NEW SECTION: I've been reading the comments from players who are stuck in Professor Flitwick's dungeon. I just played that level in my game, and got out of the room without any problem. After I assembled the dragon, it threw my character up in the air and back into the classroom without any issues. However, I understand the frustration from others who haven't been able to leave that room. (It happened to me once in another game that wasn't working properly on my system, and when I wrote a negative review about the game, I was hammered with unhelpful feedback.) However, because I didn't have the glitch in my game, my review score will stand.

If you are a Harry Potter fan, you'll be purchasing this game immediately. I've played the other games and loved them for their realism and attention to detail. This one? It's just plain fun!

HASH(0xb3cf2348) out of 5 stars Wonderful Lego and Harry Potter Game July 18 2011
By Dansgaming - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3
Harry Potter is one of the most recognized and loved book and movie series of all time and to make a video game that lives up to the expectations is a tough task. Lego Harry Potter is one of the rare movie based games that are actually a lot of fun. The magic of the movies is kept alive while being retold from inside the world of Legos.

The game's flow is a bit different than other lego games in terms of how you progress through the story. In other lego games you would be shown a cut scene, play through a level, watch another cutscene and be dumped into the hub or continue directly into the next level. In Lego harry potter, the flow of the story and levels feels much more natural. In between levels you explore Hogwarts collecting items and learning new spells. The main hub is Diagon Alley in which you have level select, character purchases, etc. and is never forced upon you in the gameplay. Each mission flows naturally into the next with various mini quests and cutscenes in between.

Each of the four movies is broken down into about 6 levels highlighting some of the more important events in the movie. Each of these events follows the story of the movie for the most part but parts are altered to allow there to be gameplay and a second character for co-op. The main story of each movie is in tact and the game does a good job of retelling the game while still being very Lego styled. Each cutscene has touches of Lego humor and makes intense moments of the movie seem lighter hearted.

The gameplay of previous games is mostly intact in terms of platforming, each character having a special ability (like digging), but the magical characters have a much larger number of abilities and spells. The player is able to choose different spells for different circumstances such as levitating some lego platforms to create an object, exploding a metal lock with "reducto", or casting the patronus charm on a dementor. Using the bumpers on the controller, the player can select the spell they want to use and fire it upon up to 4 targets at once. In order to keep thing simplified, if you hover your crosshair over an object for a few seconds it'll automatically choose the proper spell for the target. Having a wide variety of spells keeps the gameplay extremely carried and fun

The graphics in Lego Harry Potter hold the traditional lego charm of cartonny plastic for more interactable objects, but the background set is very detailed and may impress with the amount of detail. Each of the magical spells and animations are beautifully animated making the player eagerly want to cast magic as much as possible. The game has all the soundtracks of the movies and makes good use of them using the proper music in the right places. The soundtrack of the movies is beautiful so it's a pleasure to hear it in the game.

Lego Harry Potter (Years 1-4) was a game that simply surpassed all my expectations and I am eagerly anticipating the sequel (years 5-7) that comes out in November. This is going on my must buy list for any Lego game fan and any Harry potter fan as it was please both groups. Even if you've never played a Lego game or didn't like the previous Lego games I highly suggest you try it out as you may fall in love with it like I did.

HASH(0xb3cf2048) out of 5 stars Great Game - Ruined by Freezes and Game Stopping Glitch July 6 2010
By sgtpoliteness - Published on Amazon.com
Platform for Display: PlayStation 3 Verified Purchase
-Fun game
-Enjoyable story adaptation (similar to previous Lego games)
-Consistent with the Lego game franchise

-Freezes - progress lost and requires a hard reboot
-Impossible to complete game - glitch traps player permanently

I have enjoyed all of the Traveler's Tales Lego games in the past, and this game fits well in the series. Fans of the Harry Potter series will enjoy the story tie in as well as the gameplay that we all expect from the Lego game franchise.

While the game itself is good, I have had my PS3 freeze eight times while playing this game. This is eight more times than it has ever frozen before playing Lego Harry Potter. This freeze requires a hard reboot of the PS3 system; accessing the XMB (system menu) is not possible. Having the system freeze is quite frustrating; all progress since the last save is lost while untold damage is being done to the hardware.

Much more frustrating is the game stopping glitch that I came across. While exploring the dungeon below Flitwick's classroom (available after learning the final spell in year four, the orange one) I became stuck. Stuck as in a glitch prevents me from exiting this dungeon and progressing further in the game. Quitting the game, restarting the system, and reloading the saved game bring the player back to the exact same point (trapped in the dungeon).

Here is what WB customer service told me:

"This issue is currently under investigation, however sometimes restarting the console and reloading the save can resolve this issue."
"We have had reports that if the player encounters the bug, then exits to the Leaky Cauldron and then activates a save point such as: Completing a Story event or Free Play level, buying something from the shop, unlocking a building level etc , then even resetting the console will not fix this. Selecting return to Hogwarts will then take them to the Dragon room and they will again be unable to get out. We are in the process of investigating the best solution for this."

While it worked I thoroughly enjoyed Lego Harry Potter on my PS3. Given the fact that this game is playable for periods between freezes and comes to an untimely end (before the game is complete), I cannot recommend it to anybody or rate it higher than one star.
