Product Description

LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 combines two of the most beloved franchises to deliver a magical, fun-filled adventure. Based on Harry’s first four books and films - Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire- fans can experience Harry’s first four years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in a new an exciting way. Players will build the adventure from Privet Drive to the Triwizard Tournament in an interactive journey that takes them through some of the most detailed and expansive environments ever created for a LEGO game. Featuring potion-making, spellcasting, puzzle-solving, and more, players of all ages can relive the adventures like never before with the humour and creative customisation that is unique to LEGO videogames.

Manufacturer's Description

As if Harry Potter's adventures weren't magical enough now you can experience his first four years at Hogwarts through the medium of Lego. Similar to the popular Lego Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Batman games you can now control Harry and dozens of other famous characters.


The Grand Staircase makes its debut in Lego form
Hagrid and Harry explore the Lego version of Diagon Alley
Hermione uses ear plugs to handle a Lego mandrake
Control dozens of different characters, including Ron

Each character has their own specialities and abilities, from broomstick riding to a wide range of magic. The most important spell though, which nearly every character can cast, is Wingardium Leviosa which allows you to magically move Lego bricks and build them up into different objects like a wall or a set of stairs.

You'll learn new spells and abilities as you go, mirroring Harry's rise from muggle to master wizard, but the game's a lot less about fighting than the earlier Lego games. Instead the focus is much more on exploration and puzzle-solving, with Hogwarts and the other levels filled with an almost endless supply of secrets to uncover and mysteries to solve.

Key Features
  • Half term: Relieve all the adventures of the first four Harry Potter books: Philosopher's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire.
  • Who's who: Take control of over 140 Lego-style characters from obvious picks like Harry and Ron to more obscure choices like Hagrid's dog Fang.
  • Magic school: Learn new spells as you go and mix potions to help solve puzzles - but be careful not to get the ingredients wrong or you might be turned into a frog or worse.
  • Brick master: For the first time you can move individual Lego bricks around and build your own creations using the Wingardium Leviosa spell.
  • Team building: Team-up with a friend and play the whole game together, switching characters whenever you want and even playing online on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

As with all the lego games the cutscenes are very funny and for me this is the best lego game since Star Wars: The Complete Saga. You get to play as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and there are over 100 playable characters for you to unlock. The Stylus is used for casting different spells which are fun to use, talking to the many different characters, solving puzzles. The Harry Potter universe is captured brilliantly in it's lego form with the films music in the background. You get to have fun with potion making and the puzzle solving is set at just right level for the younger Harry Potter fans out there or not such able gamers.
This is important there is no two-player co-op mode for us to enjoy on the DS version of this game like we could on Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Both the two main uk websites state in there write up about this game on the ds that there is a co-op mode.
This Lego Harry Potter game only covers years 1-4 and that means we should have another Lego Harry Potter game at some point that covers the years 5-7. This is a must have game for all Harry Potter fans and I can't wait for the next one.

I really enjoyed this game, having played lego star wars, indiana jones and batman this is now my second favourite lego game.

The game play is intuitive and can be played in story mode and free play. There is a fun way using the DS stylus to cast spells and mix potions. Each year you complete you learn more and more spells and these are then used in free play to unlock hidden areas. There is the standard format of collecting studs and wizard hats (the new canisters), red bricks and this time trading cards to unlock characters who can then be bought. There are of course the classic lego clips which are funny in a way that only lego can manage.

The only down side to this game is that there are no mini games. Also you need to use the stylus to make the characters jump which can be a little frustrating if you are used to using the A and B keys. For this reason the game loses a star.

In summary this is a great game for the DS and I will be on the look out for lego harry potter years 5 - 7 and I will be pre-ordering it.

I LOVE lego games, but after playing 20% of this game, I'm pretty dissapointed and tired of playing it already. You have to use the pen stylus for everything which gets annoying after a while and my hands hurt which didn't ever happen on the other games. If you could even use A or B for the normal spell casting it would be something, but everything involves stylus movements, some of which are difficult to trace accurately. Also the graphics are really poor compared to other games, and some scenes like the classroom and commonroom are repeated far too many times and become boring. Because all the characters are litle grainy things which to me lack personality, I'm not excited about unlocking any of them, and so far none have special cool abilities that make free play fun. I've completed the first of 4 zones and still not got one of the red ability characters to be able to go back into freeplay to complete the levels. If you prefer puzzles and slower game play then this game is for you. However if you love lego games for their 'smash everything is sight' qualities then avoid this one.

This game is a very good buy! Loads of characters to unlock, with quite tricky bits for young players. A great game- but not multi player.

The simple fact that on this game you can use almost every single character from years 1-4 from Barty Crouch jr to Victor Krum just makes this game a fantastic buy it is very addictive and a fresher look on the Lego video game series. Drawing the spells on the touch screen is just a fantastic idea. Small children and big Harry potter nerds(i.e. me) will love this game the jokes are hilarious and cheesy it's a great game all round you can even play as big D now there's some fine video game playing. The only reason I gave this game 4 stars instead of 5 is that the screen on the ds isn't really big enough to give you the scale on the lego hogwarts and that the graphics are not the best inthe world but apart from that totally worth your hard earned cash I cannot wait for Harry potter years 5-7 I know that will be just as excellent

I had this game for Christmas. It has taken a while for me to understand it but I am only 7. Once I knew what to do it was great fun and quite easy to play. I love it!

As a huge Harry Potter fan and player of all previous Lego games I was really looking forward to this Lego Harry Potter. Whilst it certainly hasn't disappointed, I'm not sure it has recreated the same levels as the Lego Star Wars series.

As usual you start as Harry but have the option to rotate to others in your group. You also have the ability to us your wand and spells to interact with your surroundings much in the same way as the Jedi's Force or Indy's whip. You also have the True Wizard level, ability to customise characters and unlock other characters as you progress.

There are a couple of new elements to this though which adapt it to the Harry Potter world:

Firstly, they have changed the interaction element - whereas the jedi's force or Indy's whip would automatically perform the correct action, in this game you need to use the stylus to perform the correct spell. This is a neat little invention at first but can become slightly irritating when the DS keeps mis-reading your stylus action.

Secondly, you come across lots of other characters who have little or nothing to do with the game. Whereas in Indy or Batman almost all the characters you meet are enemies or friends, here they are just other characters. Obviously with it being set in a school this is a nice touch but my one issue with it is that even when Harry is in class these characters are just called "boy" or "girl" which makes it slightly less enjoyable - it would have been nice if they could have chosen names familiar from the book or just made some up.

Thirdly they have introduced a new "pet sense" which allows the played to see when there is something hidden in the local proximity.
