My Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Xbox 360) Review

While I was a big fan of original Lego Star Wars, I haven’t felt that the series has really progressed to me. Lego Star Wars II was good but the same, and Lego Indiana Jones was decent but didn’t progress the series at all. Does Lego Harry Potter: 1-4 innovate and master the series? Not really…

Now don’t get me wrong, fans of Harry Potter won’t be too disappointed. It does a good job at recreating the first four books in Lego form. Which is really nice from the epic battles against dark wizards, monsters, and other foes to smaller scenes like Quidditch and Hogwarts classes.

And I have to admit that the spell powers are almost as sweet as grasping a lightsaber or aiming a blaster. For those familiar with the series, it’s pretty clear that there’s a lot of spells for the game to use. And they do a decent job at providing the use of the more popular magic. Though after getting all the spells, it can get real complicated trying to shuffle through them.

I know Harry Potter is based on school-work, and puzzle-solving, but I really wished the game offered more action scenes. They were fun at first, but after awhile you just get tired of making potions, or blasting everything in a room so you find the one part you need. It really does feel like Lego homework, instead of magical fun. But regardless if you got kids who enjoy Harry Potter, this would be fine choice for their game collection.

Score: 7 Out of 10
